Lee Joon-gi and Shin Min-a in bed together for a teaser


MBC Drama “Arang and the Magistrate”

A teaser for Lee Joong-gi and Shin Min-a’s new drama “Arang and the Magistrate” aired for the first time on July 11 on MBC.
Public watched while holding its breath, as action scenes as well as an intimate scene featuring Lee and Shin laying down together was screened.

The drama is based on the Korean folklore of “Arang,” --name of a female ghost who met an untimely death-- which hails from the region of Milyang in South Gyeongsang.
The drama’s plot revolves around a mischievous young ghost named Arang (played by Shin) who wants to reveal the curious circumstances surrounding her death.

As his first role since being discharged from the Army in February; Lee will play the role of Eun-oh, a district magistrate who has the unique gift of seeing dead people. Lee’s character is said to be searching for his missing mother.

MBC network is expecting good results from its second period drama for the year; following in the stead of “The Moon that Embraces the Sun,” the show is set to be the “big period drama” for the second half of the year.
