Lee Jun Ki was really the actor to watch in MBC's "Arang and the Magistrate."

On Thursday, the drama came to an end, as the two of them finally met their happy ending. 

On the night of the third full moon, Eun Oh and Arang (Shin Min Ah) were able to find a place in the forest that deals with life and death, thanks to the help of Psychic Bang Wool (Hwang Bora). 

Eun Oh finds out that Arang herself was partly responsible for her own death and he goes to find the Jade Emperor and Yama and ask them for help in order for Arang to ring the bell of truth. Because Arang was responsible for her own death, the bell of truth never rang and had to go into the underworld.

However, at the last minute, Eun Oh decides to go into the underworld for her and Arang is then able to ascend to heaven. When the Emperor and Yama see that Eun Oh sacrificed himself for Arang, he tries to send him to heaven but Eun Oh requests that he be returned to the land of the living. 

In the ending, Eun Oh and Arang are reborn and meet later. Eun Oh is not able to remember Arang but the two of them share a sweet kiss afterwards.

Lee Jun Ki chose this drama as his comeback piece, playing the role of Eun Oh, the sacrificial man in love with a ghost. Lee Jun Ki had achieved fame through "The King and his Man" and had achieved very positive reviews from his other projects.

Through historical dramas, Lee Jun Ki was properly recognized for his acting ability and star potential but people worried that it might just become stale. However, he was able to portray the subtleties of emotion as well as action, and a very good romantic relationship with Shin Min Ah.

Fans are anticipating that Lee Jun Ki will come back to the public with different roles and characters.
