‘Goblin’ is the newest Korean drama series to hit our screens in the upcoming month. Produced by the masterminds behind the highly acclaimed ‘Descendants of the Sun’, director Lee Eung Bok and writer Kim Eun Sook have paired up again on the dark fantasy drama set in present day time.
Besides the romantic twists and turns in the plot, the blossoming bromance between the two male leads is hard to ignore – starring Gong Yoo, last seen in zombie actioner ‘Train to Busan’ and Lee Dong Wook. The fantasy drama follows a sad and mysterious goblin (Gong Yoo), who is the protector of souls.
