Baek Ji Young's Love and Love
I am also following the broadcast of Arang and Magistrate right now. Unfortunately, I feel the series does not live up to its hype. I do not find the overall storyline to be very engaging. Reading about it is more fun than watching the drama episode by episode. I found the development of the mystery too draggy and just want to know the bloody answer to the mystery. If any of you want to watch a good mystery or crime thriller, I strongly recommend another Korean drama called Vampire Prosecutor. Watch Season 2 and skip Season 1. Though Season 1 is good too, but I think Season 2 is BETTER so far. A word of caution for the sensitive souls, Vampire Prosecutor is bloody...

In case you are curious about the series featured in the above MV, I strong advise you to watch it only when you have a truckload FULL of patience. This series exasperated me like no other Korean sageuks (alright, maybe there quite a few sageuks that annoyed me). I love the premise of the story and I really enjoyed the first episode despite its depressingly low rating. However, it took the story to forever to move forward and the characters just became SUPER annoying and underdeveloped. It started with a boom and ended in a blah.
P.S. Thanks Guess for inspiring me to write about this post.
