A servant in his house named Jugi, interested in Charcoal and always teasing him, but always ignored by Charcoal. But instead just replied with a smile. When asked why, Arang replied that he should be nice and polite in front of anyone, including his father's subordinates. Jugi is interested in Charcoal since he first saw Arang coming to deliver his father's lunch. One day, Jugi pulls Charcoal hand, he wants to talk about something. But refused with charcoal by Charcoal, after all he had to bring his father's lunch as soon as possible. Irresponsible, he and Baekga eventually conspired to bring down his Charcoal and his father, and Baekga also hated Judge Yun, because it meant that the corruption of officials would be followed up, so he was ambitious to seize his father's authority, and Even making an appointment with corrupt officials, he will relieve them of legal action. Jugi then bribes the caretaker Charcoal to bring Charcoal streets to the bamboo forest. That's where Jugi tried to declare his love for Charcoal once more, but still rejected smoothly by Charcoal. Because of anger, Jugi desperate to seduce him and laugh: "Wahahahaha! You are tarnished now, so there is no choice for you to marry anyone but me !!". Hearing this Charcoal irritated and kicked him down as a resistance, though he was still tied with rope. Upset at the resistance of Arang, Jugi kills Charcoal and buries his corpse in the bamboo forest as well. Immediately word got out to the whole town that Charcoal was gone. Judge Yun became very sad and returned to Hanyang without Charcoal.

After Judge Yun came down, several other judges took turns at Miryang because every night after taking office, one by one died mysteriously. A brave and curious young man Yi sought to run for the next judge. On the first night after being appointed a judge, the young man was approached by a long-blooded woman covered in blood who was none other than the ghost of Charcoal. Arang initially hesitated to speak, but after being persuaded, he then admitted that his nurse was bribed by Jugi to take him to the bamboo forest. Judge Yi then asks Arang to leave for a while. He then asked this to the caretaker of Charcoal, but he insisted he did not know it. Judge Yi then invited him out of his room. Just for a moment, there was a hysterical scream. After Judge Yi checked to the location, he found out that the caretaker of Charcoal committed suicide, and he also found the handwritten handwritten letter confessing his mistake and he himself did not expect Jugi to kill Charcoal. When Charcoon came back and received the letter, she burst into tears as she said she did not blame her nanny, she already thought of her as her own mother, but she was just disappointed that her nurse had been bribed by Jugi. After telling his story to the boy, the ghost of Charcoal said that tomorrow he would be a white butterfly to show who killed him and begged Judge Yi to help him investigate the case. Judge Yi agreed. The next morning, the new judge summoned all the servants. A white butterfly flew and landed on the hat of one of the servants, Jugi, and then another servant, Baekga. The judge then interrogated them. At first they denied, but eventually confessed that they were the conspirators and Jugilah who had killed Charcoal and buried his corpse in a bamboo grove near the Yeongnam Pavilion. After being dug, it turns out the corpse remains intact, possibly because the spirit is still curious. After Jugi and Baekga were punished, the ghost of Charcoon never appeared again. Until now, in Miryang still held anniversary every 16th of the 4th month of lunar calendar to commemorate Charcoal. A temple named Arang-gak built for him. Konon, if there are people who hurt to come to the temple and pray, then the Arang will come to the perpetrator until the culprit apologize and supposedly Arang will maintain the love of couples who visit the temple simultaneously
