Summary: Arang and the Magiistrate Episode 3

Lol what a late recap. I have been so freaking busy this week looking after my sis’ lil daughter! Now that she has left, I need to help my mom with cleaning the house~

Now lets move to episode 3. To me this episode is pretty nice cause things are starting to float to the surface but I still cannot find anything that can draw me attached to it like The Princess’ Man did. Well whatsoever, I believe it’s going to get better soon. (I hope!)

Episode 3 starts with last week’s cliffhanger where Arang leans closer to Eun Oh for  a kiss?! Eun Oh is shocked by this, he closes his eyes but then it turns out that it is just his dream. (what a dream! Lol)

The next day, Eun Oh asks Dol Swe to deliver a letter to Joo Wal asking for a meeting. 

Bad God reminds the Good God about the lost souls who need to be captured (it has been four hundred years since they were lost) and says that he will step in if he can’t solve the matter. (IDK wtf they’re talking about)

MEANWHILE, Bang Wool gives Arang clothes and make ups as offerings for her to wear when she meets Joo Wal. You know, since she’s embarrassed of meeting him in shabby clothes. She gets dressed but still have no idea how she looks like.

When Eun Oh sees her, he’s shocked to see how beautiful she is (well if you ask my opinion, I don’t think that she’s pretty, she’s just cute). When she asks him about how she looks like, he says that she’s just a lil bit less ugly than before. (boys are always mean like that!) he then goes to see Joo Wal, asking her to stay there till he comes for her.

Bang Wool asks her to leave her now since she has got what she wanted from her. Arang walks away feeling sad. (guess she feels hurt)

While on his way to meet Joo Wal, Eun Oh feels that Arang’s new outwear is really distracting and that he’s better with her being a scary ghost than being a pretty one. Lol. He mutters to himself that he’ll have to stick with her since she can cause lots of troubles with her amnesia. (I’m not convinced that it’s because of her amnesia that he wants to stay with her…) he heads back.

Arang plans something while heading to the town. She goes to an abandoned barn to get some herbs to make herself visible to solve the mysteries surrounding her. A few ghosts attack her at the barn because of her act of stealing their appeasement food sometimes earlier. she fights back because they are ruining her new clothes (yeah, just because of the hanbok!) but then she gets outnumbered as more ghosts come.

But then Eun Oh comes to the rescue with a bag of beans, the ghosts feel scared, till it's revealed that there's only one bean in it lol

The ghosts keep getting up even though he keeps on kicking them…hmmm that’s ANNOYING! Arang then warn them that they’re attracting reapers. But the ghost don’t care bout this and keep on attacking them. As they’re cornered, reapers come. All of them try to flee away.

Eun Oh takes Arang’s hand and they run as fast as they could and the (slow?!) reapers don’t manage to get them. When they stop, Arang gets moody that she cannot see Joo Wal in such torn clothes. Eun Oh feels annoyed. (I would’ve too!). 

but then they get to the meeting place too (although soaked in rain). But Joo Wal is gone. He asks her to stay with him on Earth and not go to the afterlife (not in a direct way).

Arang then screams her heart out asking the Jade Emperor what she has done to get such a terrible life, but he just dismisses her.

 It rains and a red ribbon floats to a surface.
Both Joo Wal and Eun Oh is told about the founding of a dead body. The body is uncovered from the ground due to the rain. 

Eun Oh arrives first at the scene. It’s the former magistrate daughter, Arang. Everyone wonders why her face is preserved till that today. He looks at her body but cannot find his mother’s hairpin. (what?? I love mysteries lol). Yeah, she was stabbed with a knife and of course murdered.

He turns around and there she is. He tells her not to look but it’s way too late. She then runs till she reaches a field and she drops to her knees and cries. He tries to catch up with her but then stops as he sees Joo Wal at the scene.

Arang then runs all the way to the river, and  sobs on the ground.

Joo Wal looking kind of emotionless tries to take Arang’s body from the scene but Eun Oh stops it saying he has a right on it since he’s the magistrate. (I love the way he says it). Joo Wal asks about the meeting earlier and Eun Oh tells him it is because he has something to ask but it’s not that important right now.

Joo Wal argues with him about his right on the corpse since his dad wants him to take care of it quietly. Eun Oh asks him why he’s being like that, doesn’t he think that Arang’s name should be cleared? (from the rumours that she eloped with a guy). Eun Oh says that he understands how hurt he feels that his fiancĂ©e went missing for three years but is kind of shocked when Joo Wal says that he feels nothing. Joo Wal says that they aren’t that close with each other for him to feel hurt. Joo wal says he doesn’t care bout what he’ll do to the body but his dad might care.

Arang cries herself to sleep at the riverbank while Eun Oh wonders where she is. Dol Swe moves Arang’s body to a room and he asks his master on what to do with it. Eun Oh says he’ll ask. He means Arang, but Dol Swe mistakes it as Lord Choi.

That night, Arang goes to see her body. And in tears, she mutters that she’s pretty. She asks the body about what happened to her. And she ends with saying ‘wait, I’ll find out for you’.


She screams at the sky asking the Jade Emperor about what happened to her. She starts with screaming and ends with pleading. The jade emperor is shocked by this. 

 The Bad God then says that he’ll take care of Arang and punish her accordingly but the Good God says that he’ll grant her the wish because she promises to come quietly if he tells her.

Arang goes to see Bang Wool’s help again. We’re not told what Arang wants. The next thing we know, both of them are at a spooky place.

Eun Oh can’t wait for Arang anymore, so he heads out to look for Arang. (aww he’s so sweet!)

Joo Wal stares at the moon as if he wants to swallow it (lol this is from my view!). dad scolds him for not being able to take care of even one thing. And then he mentions that Joo Wal is wearing the form well but still people can differentiate between  a fake and a real.(honestly the old man always sounds crazy to me with his stupid metaphors!)  

Back to the spooky place, there’s a hidden wall there with a pattern ( a pattern all the dead shares, the one they have on their necks) Bang Wool asks what they are trying to catch but Arang doesn’t answer (what a way to leave me wondering!) She blows on Bang Wool’s face and she screams. Arang apologizes to her and wonders if that’s enough for them to come. (I guess it’s the reapers she’s referring to). She tells bang Wool that she have decided to go to the afterlife. (WHAT????)  Bang Wool feels bittersweet over this news.
Muyoung then appers behind her and asks whether she’s ready to return, she says yes but she wants to meet The Jade Emperor first. She wants to ask him something.

Up in so called heaven, the game isn’t going well. . the Jade Emperor then wins the game but the King of Underworld asks him (pleadingly) to take back the last move and for it, the Jade Emperor asks him to do something. Turns out it’s an order to ask Muyoung to agree with Arang’s request.

Arang then asks Bang Wool to stop so they’re freed. 

And my pretty Eun Oh is nervously searching for Arang (OmG, he’s pretty and pitiful right now!)
But Mu-young is leading her through the woods to take her to the afterlife. (WHAT A CLIFFHANGER!)

End of Episode 3
