Production for upcoming tvN fantasy romance Goblin has officially kicked off with the first script reading attended by its all-star cast and high profile writer and director! Gong Yoo (Coffee Prince), Kim Go Eun (Cheese in the Trap), Lee Dong Wook (Bubblegum), Yoo In Na, (One More Happy Ending), and Yook Sun Jae (School 2015) joined with the writer and director of Descendants of the Sun, Kim Eun Sook and Lee Eung Bok, to bring the characters to life.

In the upcoming drama, Gong Yoo will take on the role of a goblin named Kim Jin, who wishes to end his immortal life. In order to end his eternal life, he must marry a human bride. As part of his curse, the goblin lives with a grim reaper (Lee Dong Wook) who has amnesia. Kim Go Eun plays a high school girl named Ji Eun Tak, who is the bride the goblin is in search of. Yoo In Na plays Sunny, a quirky chicken restaurant owner, and Yook Sung Jae plays a wealthy heir named Yoo Duk Hwa.

What's really fun about this pairing is that when Gong Yoo was asked in an interview which actress he would like to work with, he answered Kim Go Eun, citing that he thought she was charming and that he enjoyed her work in the film Chinatown.

This romantic, supernatural tvN drama will be Gong Yoo’s return to the small screen since his last drama four years ago, Big.

The cast was absorbed in the script for four hours and the production staff stated, “Writer Kim Eun Sook and producing director Lee Eung Bok took the lead. The script read-through was passionate and the actors all matched well together. We have confidence that we can make a production that will conclude 2016 with a flourish.”

Goblin will be airing in December following Ji Chang Wook and Yoona's The K2.
