Missing your weekly dose of Myeol Mang (Seo In Guk) and Dong Kyung (Park Bo Young)? Do you find yourself rewatching the behind-the-scenes videos over and over to sigh at that chemistry? We have some suggestions for your next drama binge-watch! There’s no show that blends grief, death, romance, and fantasy the way “Doom At Your Service” does. Yet, here are some amazing dramas with the same elements albeit in different quantities!
“Tale of Arang”
Gods, ghosts, and vanished mothers collide in this spooky tale of love, loss, and murder. Arang (Shin Min Ah) is an amnesiac ghost who spends her days hiding from Moo Young, the Grim Reaper (Han Jung Soo), and stealing food from memorials to survive. This changes when she runs into Eun Oh (Lee Joon Gi), the hotheaded illegitimate child of a noble who’s hunting for his missing mother. Eun Oh forges an unlikely alliance with Arang after discovering that her binyeo (hairpin) is the same one he gave to his mother. Realizing that the truth of Arang’s death is tied to his mother’s disappearance, the two hunt down her killer in a sleepy town where girls vanish every month.
Why you’ll love it:
Arang is no shrinking violet. This girl is feisty, opinionated, and has a sharp tongue to boot. It’s equal parts hilarious and heartwarming to watch these two bicker their way into romance. Shin Min Ah’s performance really shines here, and Lee Joon Gi plays the straight man to her wild, spunky ghost.
But there’s more – Yoo Seung Ho shines as the sunny, foppish Jade Emperor, with Park Joon Gyu playing the eternally irritated King Yeomna. Their banter influences everything in the drama’s universe. They crack deals over the main characters’ fates, while perhaps betting a little more than they should.
