‘Arang and the Magistrate’ Gets Double the Ratings for ‘To the Beautiful You’

Lee Joon Gi and Shin Min Ah emerged as the victors over the idol stars Minho and Sulli. According to AGB Nielsen Media Research on August 16, the first episode of MBC’s Arang and the Magistrate, which aired on August 15, recorded 13.3 percent in viewership ratings. The number was 4.2 percent higher than the 9.1 percent for the last episode of the drama’s predecessor, Kim Sun Ah and Lee Jang Woo’s I Do I Do. With this record Arang and the Magistrate is on its way to a great success. The piece especially gathered interest for being Lee Joon Gi’s comeback piece after his release from the army, and the attention it gathered from female viewers showed when ratings for females turned out to be the highest. Most of the viewers were women in their 30s, with 15 percent ratings in that group alone. Arang and the Magistrate’s ratings were about two times higher than those of SBS’ To the Beautiful You, which also aired its first episode on the same day at the same time. To the Beautiful You, which stars the idol singers f(x)’s Sulli and SHINee’s Minho, recorded moderate ratings of 7.4 percent. The first episode of Arang and the Magistrate showed how Arang (Shin Min Ah) asked the magistrate Eun Oh (Lee Joon Gi) to uncover the secret behind her death. Viewers said they were enamored by Lee Joon Gi’s acting, Shin Min Ah’s bounciness and how the two also looked great together. In the meantime KBS2’s Bridal Mask defended its throne with 19.4 percent viewership ratings. Photo credit: MBC

If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
