Yay! I am so excited for this! Lee Dong Wook (Bubblegum) has been confirmed to star alongside Gong Yoo (Big) in the new tvN drama Goblin coming from the writer of Descendants of the Sun, Kim Eun Soo. He will play the role of a grim reaper who ends up living with Gong Yoo’s goblin character.
I was already interested in the drama because of the writer and fantasy premise, but now you throw in Lee Dong Wook, and it is a must see! I look forward to lots of fun bromance between these two guys. And apparently the drama is taking notes from Descendants of the Sun and going with the two separate couples setup. Which means Lee Dong Wook gets his own love line! Yay to that!
We’re still waiting to hear from Kim Go Eun (Cheese in the Trap) who has an offer out to her to play the human bride. And no word yet as to who will be playing Lee Dong Wook’s leading lady.
Goblin is 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 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.
Goblin is scheduled to air in November on tvN.
