A heart moving story
2 January 2016 | by Macy Trieu-DingleSee all my reviews

Ignoring the poor choice of wigs, and bad fog effects. Arang and the Magistrate, is a Korean Drama that greatly moved me. With an intricate plot where sympathy for even the most gruesome characters is inevitable it draws you in like magic.

The character development is stunning, as each character grows and adapts to their new experiences, and learns more about the appreciation of life and others around them.

A well researched fantasy piece as well, instead of aimlessly throwing in random supernatural features, it seems the world follows on a set of rules, making it even more believable.

Also a great romance that doesn't rely on exceptionally cheesy moments to keep you hooked, but really uses the good heart of the characters to create a fairy tale romance.

A story with, action, suspense, fantasy and a great deal of moral, as well as a poetic dialogue, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a heart touching, engaging story. Just ignore the wigs....
