After what felt like an eternity, Gong Yoo’s highly-anticipated comeback drama Goblin (aka The Lonely Shining Goblin) is only just a couple of days away. And here’s the English subbed version of its long preview to get us even more hyped up.
What’s there to watch out for in this drama apart from Gong Yoo playing the titular role?
1. Another leading man – the dashing Lee Dong-wook playing an amnesiac grim reaper, and the potential cohabitation hijinks (plus bromance!!!) with Gong Yoo
2. Talented young actress Kim Go-eun playing opposite Gong Yoo as the goblin’s mortal bride, and Yoo Inna as a seductive chicken shop owner
3. Yook Sungjae finally choosing a drama this year, after turning down several casting offers
4. For Descendants of the Sun fans out there, this is actually the reunion project of DotS writer-director duo. For those who aren’t sold with this writer, though, this may be a red flag. Please make this good, Kim Eun-sook.
5. Special appearances! Kim Min-jae and Kim So-hyun are even included in the preview, and from what I hear, there’s still more to come.
This visually stunning preview is setting the bar even higher for this drama. With its polished look and star-studded cast, I almost forgot that it’s a tvN drama!
Goblin premieres on December 2nd.
