Well, it’s confirmed! Gong Yoo (Big) will be starring in the new tvN drama coming from the writer of Descendants of the Sun, Kim Eun Sook. As of now, the drama is going by the name of Goblin. We also have some plot details revealed too. Goblin will be a fantasy romance about a modern day goblin (Gong Yoo) who wants to end his immortal life and needs a human bride to do so. He somehow ends up living with a grim reaper who has amnesia. The drama will tell the story of the lives of those that see the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
It’s a pretty strange premise for sure, but the execution will probably feel like most contemporary romances with just an outer layer of supernatural. Hopefully, we can get another big star into the lead female role to really cement what should be another extremely popular drama.
The drama is looking to air in November on tvN.
