1st Stills Featuring Gong Yoo From Upcoming Drama Goblin


I have a guilty secret. I was not a fan of the summer juggernaut Descendants of the Sun.  Which makes me just a tad less excited for the writer’s upcoming drama Goblin despite its stellar cast.  That said, these 1st stills of Gong Yoo have convinced me to at least give the drama a shot.  I have to say that he is outshining the flowers in these photos.  The man has only gotten better with age.1


Dokkaebi (Gong Yoo) needs a human bride to end his immortal life. Meanwhile, the Angel of Death has amnesia. Somehow these two meet and live together. They see off those who have passed away and are now leaving this world.

1abI also appreciate the use of a fantasy theme since I have enjoyed immortal/reaper stories in the past.  Maybe this will be the drama that will wipe my disappointment of DotS from my mind.  Goblin airs on December 2nd on TvN.

  1. I agree with you about “Descendants of the Sun” — it had already aired half its episodes before I managed to force myself to watch it out of curiosity over all the hoopla. The ending episode made it all seem like a farce and waste of time. I think it was… But I’m looking forward to “Goblin,” partly because of the fantasy aspect (of which I’m a big fan), and also because because of the cast (i.e. Gong Yoo!).

  2. DOTS is overrated. I didn’t watch it inspite of all the hype coz if the medical war setting and melodrama genre. Until I got bored one day and decided to give it a try, this was like two months ago. It was ok but I really dont like the medical war setting, 4 episodes down and I’m done. Cant sustain any interest.
    Anyway… I love Gong Yoo and we should be glad that he decided to give tv drama another try after that Hong Sisters’ drama which was a major fail. But it doesn’t matter we’ll watch anything that he is in.
    With his classic good looks, Gong Yoo will forever be the coffee prince.

  3. Just a shout out for goblins in general: My favorite samurai movie, 13 Assassins, has Iseya Yusuke playing (officially) a hunter who is first seen suspended in a cage as a punishment for seducing his boss’s wife. According to the director, though, the storyline says he is a goblin, a magical being known for seducing women. If there ever was a man known for seducing women (through the magic of t.v.) – that would be Gong Yoo.

  4. If it wasn’t for Song Joong Ki and the 2nd couple, I wouldn’t have watched DOTS. The story was dull and the female lead’s character annoying at best. Way overhyped.
