Earlier today, MBC’s “Arang and the Magistrate” unveiled new teaser stills of its female lead Shin Min Ah running and running. Unlike traditional ghosts who brood and mope, Shin Min Ah’s Arang is a vivacious and feisty ghost. In the scenes, Arang is being chased by a ghost hunter named Mooyoung (Han Jung Soo), who captures spirits who linger on earth.
Based on a famous folklore, the fantasy drama takes place in the Joseon era. Shin Min Ah plays Arang, the daughter of the magistrate who is brutally murdered. She returns as a ghost with no recollection of her life and how she was murdered and goes around haunting every new magistrate who comes to town…that is until Eun Oh, played by Lee Jun Ki, shows up. The two eventually fall in love.
“Arang and the Magistrate” will premiere on MBC on August 15 at 9:55PM KST.
