The other night I had this weird idea to recap Arang and the Magistrate just using haiku poems. I was inspired by Lee Seo Im’s poems in ep. 12 and also by a WANK challenge that Simon and Martina did on their eatyourkimchi channel. Unfortunately, I’m not much of a poet, but I thought it would be kinda bizarre and fun to do.
What I didn’t get to say about this episode, was that it was ACTION-PACKED with the perfect combo of suspense, angst, and funny. Also, is Lee Jun Ki wearing eye-liner? His eyelashes are short, but look darker. He is SO PRETTY and manly. Gahhhh!!!

Hey, folks! I made my first ever Youtube video. I decided to start recapping Arang and the Magistrate. Please, please, PLEASE go see it and leave your comments. Please be nice, because my skin is like those peaches Arang loves so much 🙂 Here’s the link!

I just finished episode 10 and jeez, this show is just too gorgeous! It makes my heart ache! And though the focus of the show has been the story a bit more than the characters its nice to slowly learn and care more for them, just like how Eun Oh and Arang are naturally growing closer. However, episodes 9-10 slowed down and gave more insight into what makes them tick. Eun Oh isn’t just a typical cold kdrama lead with a hidden fuzzy side. He’s actually never really had a mother. He did everything he could to be her son, but she was too wrapped up in her pain to be there for him. Despite, her huge failings he feels guilty and wants to give her the peaceful life she never had. Eun Oh’s true nature is generous. Even after finding out his time with Arang would be short, instead of shutting her out he wants be good to her now and then send her to heaven.
