Arang (Shin Min Ah)

Shin Min Ah described her character, Arang, as a plucky, bright personality, in a departure from the typical ghost character. “She’s cynical and coarse and reckless, and strong-headed to boot, but not in a hateful way; she’s a lovable character. She doesn’t remember who she was in her life, and struggles to get by in this world, desperately wanting to know the reason for her death.”
It also seems that the ghost doesn’t exactly get a free ride, despite her non-living status, because Shin describes Arang’s experience as “struggling to live in this world” and fighting with other creatures over the bits of food that get thrown on the ground as a ritual to scare away ghosts.

 Magistrate Eun-Oh (Lee Jun Ki)

Lee describes his character as a man who doggedly pursues clues about his mother’s disappearance; he feels nothing in the world matters aside from that. His character as cynical and brusque on the outside, though (naturally) much warmer on the inside: “It seems like he treats people coldly, but he feels a lot of sorrow and sympathy for them; ‘Eun-oh’ is a three-dimensional character. At first I was drawn to him because he was a prickly type of role I haven’t played before, but as I delve more into the drama, I find that he’s someone I can show a lot of different sides to.” (Source: dramabeans)
