318846_325856304170519_862322154_n.jpgHistorical Information (Translated by KPOPANDA):
‘The legend of Arang’ is a legend based on an infamous story that happened to Yeon Nam Ru Miryang, of the Kyung San Nam province.Arang’s real name was known to be Yoon Dong Ok, the daughter of the Deputy Magistrate Officer of Miryang, Kyung San province. She is known to be an orphaned child who lived with her godmother, and grew up to be an incredibly beautiful woman. However, the godmother, who was ambitious and jealous of her beauty, used every approach including hiring assassins to harm the beautiful Arang. One day, during a night when Arang went out to see the full moon, they thought of a way to humiliate (‘ruin her innocence‘) her. Arang, who tried to resist from the criminal act and protect her virginity, was eventually stabbed to death and was hidden into a bamboo (a kind of bamboo like coffin.)After the Deputy Magistrate Officer heard the ‘news’ about Arang having a relationship with a man in public and excaping with them, he resigned from the office. From then on in Miryang, whenever the Deputy Ambassador was called upon for the inauguration of new deputies, a suspicious spirit would suddenly appear on the first night after the inauguration. Therefore, all the officers (/officials) who heard about the news were afraids of getting this position.During this time, a brave young official name Lee, suddenly appears and decides to voluntarily go up for the position of Deputy Magistrate Officer of Miryang. And during the first night of the position, the ghost spirit of Arang suddenly appears. Lee figures out that something is fishy therefore he promises and decides to help investigate and find the truth about her death, therefore her spirit will be able to leave peacefully. Lee hurriedly helps finds the truth about who killed Arang and her spiritly peacefully flies away. From then on, Arang’s spirit never appeared again.Today, beneath Yung Nam Ru, contains a preserved temple for the female ghost Arang, and the other tragic stories which occured in Yung Nam Ru continues to spread…*Deputy Magistrate Officer is the highest level official a.k.a magistrate (They are usually seen wearing red clothing in dramas.)*Officers/Officials are lower ranked who wears blue clothing in dramas. A lower rank wears green.

If this drama would be as horrific and frightening as it sounds, count me in!

Aside from Hometown Legends 1 & 2, I've yet to see a lot of horror sageuk dramas so the anticipation to be frightened to death is high. B)

Thank you for starting this thread, yeohweping! I cannot wait for this collaboration. I hope all contracts are signed, at least with the leads, considering filming to start in May. I cannot wait to see the chemistry Shin Mina and Lee Junki can produce on screen. Arang hwaiting!!!!

Shin Mina and Lee Jun-ki headline new drama

by girlfriday | February 24, 2012 |

Looks like fusion sageuks are going to be all the rage this summer. And this one’s even got an added summer-horror kick to it, to liven up the landscape. Shin Mina (My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho) and Lee Jun-ki (Iljimae, Hero) will be making their drama comeback together this year in a fusion retelling of the folklore ghost tale Arang Magistrate Story, or Arang for short.This will be Lee Jun-ki’s first drama back from army duty (aw, they grow up so fast) and Shin Mina’s anticipated return to the small screen since her insanely popular turn as a modern gumiho. It’s a little typecasty to go from mythical nine-tailed fox to vengeance ghost, but I don’t think this supernatural creature’s going to be chowin’ down on meat or playing hoi-hoi anytime soon.

The drama is based on famous folklore, as all ghost stories are: During the Joseon era in the city of Milyang, Arang was the pure, beautiful, good-hearted daughter of a magistrate. (Magistrates figure into a LOT of Korean folklore, as they are the local men of power, and often depicted as abusing said power or meeting some untimely demise.) She grew up without a mother, and was raised by a wicked caretaker who conspired to have her be raped and ruined by a servant. He attacked and she resisted, so he stabbed and killed her, and left her body to rot in the woods.

Her father the magistrate just believed that she eloped with a man (dishonorably, of course) and so resigned his position swathed in shame. Thus the legend goes that every time a new magistrate comes to Milyang to fill the position, Arang’s vengeful ghost shows up to tell him her story and he flees in terror. She just wants you to hear her, ’cause girl was PURE, and her daddy DIDN’T LISTEN. Yunno, ghosts are misunderstood like that.

But one day a new magistrate comes to town — a young man by the name of Lee Sang-sa. Arang appears to him like every other magistrate before him, but this man doesn’t flee, and instead sympathizes with Arang, and promises to find her killer and avenge her death. Cue drama. Not bad for a ghost story, eh?

So Shin Mina will be playing Arang, of course, and Lee Jun-ki the new magistrate Lee Sang-sa who I’m assuming does more than just sympathize with her, making for an epic I-love-a-ghost-but-we-can-never-be-together tragic love affair. Sounds awesome to me, since you can’t get any more epic than Dead Girl Loves Not-So-Dead Boy.

At the helm is PD Kim Sang-ho, of Can You Hear My Heart, Hon, and Fantasy Couple, and writing is Jung Yoon-jung, who has no credits to her name. I’m excited for some spooky summer fun, so hopefully it’ll deliver in epic proportions. Arang will air on MBC in July.
