My eyes, my eyes, I’m blinding by too much gorgeousness! The first official character stills are out of the leads for Arang and the Magistrate. Lee Jun Ki and Shin Mina are absolutely positively exploding off the screen in intensity. I feel their characters in these shots, as opposed to being static and two-dimensional. Jun Ki’s piercing gaze gives me shivers, and Mina is all sorts of riveting and fascinating as the titular ghostly Arang. This drama looks so good I want to pinch myself. Both Mina and Jun Ki have revealed that the script is amazing and they are always excited to be on set and playing such interesting characters. Both expressed awe when meeting each other (double the star power), which is just too cute.
Here’s a quick look at the entire cast of Arang. Niiiice. Shin Mina describes the drama as a sageuk with some comedy but is a fantasy melodrama first and foremost.
