Arang is a plucky ghost from legend, determined to discover the truth of her identity! Eun-Oh is a nobleman with mummy issues and a chip on his shoulder who most definitely absolutely utterly doesn’t want to help her out! What follows is a moody, atmospheric adventure through a tiny Joseon village (via the underworld!), featuring a whole bunch of exhumed dead bodies, bickering gods in terrible wigs, and a literal goat that is a stand in for earth …. or something. Welcome to the utterly charming Korean drama ARANG AND THE MAGISTRATE. Listen as Lee Evie discusses her 10 reasons to love this Kdrama!
