Lee Joon Gi recently said he is excited to shoot a new drama series with Shin Min Ah.
On June 18, Lee gave his thoughts on playing the leading role in MBC TV’s new drama series Arang and the Magistrate. At the interview, he said, “I’m especially excited about the romance between the two leading characters.”
Lee said, “I always think about and look forward to the type of romance in this drama series. One thing I can tell you for sure is that the genre of this drama series is fantasy historical melodrama. So I think it will have more romance than my previous drama series.”
Lee also said, “I wish the love story between me and Arang can appeal to the viewers. It’s a little bit different from other romantic comedies. When I saw the synopsis of this series at first, I was very much attracted to the genre, which is a fantasy melodrama that ghosts appear. I’m expecting the new concepts related to this genre will attract the viewers.”
Arang and the Magistrate is a drama series based on a Korean legend about Arang. It’s a love story between reckless ghost Arang (played by Shin Min Ah), who wants to know the reason of her death as she lost all her memories, and picky magistrate Eun Oh (played by Lee Joon Gi), who has an ability to see ghosts.
It’s directed by Kim Sang Ho of the drama series Fantastic Couple and Can You Hear my Heart and written by Jung Yoon Jung of Chosun Police Season 1 and 2. It will start airing at the end of July after I Do, I Do.
