Gong Yoo is undoubtedly the most wanted man in Hallyu right now. About three weeks after Goblin ended, his agency Soop Management said he received fan meeting offers from at least 15 different countries, from Japan and China to even the United States, Canada and Australia. Everyone wants to summon the Goblin!

But with the high demand comes nearly no time off for the actor - at least for now. “He has no official activities scheduled from mid-March, so he will probably take some personal time off to rest. That’s when he will look over scripts and offers for his next project,” according to an agency rep. Due to his packed schedule, he had to cancel joining the show’s reward trip to Phuket, Thailand. (The other three stars of the show, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook, and Yoo In Na, also had to cancel for similar reasons.) Post-show, he’s been filming a multitude of commercials. This has whisked him to cities like Sydney, Australia (where he was crowded by adoring fans at the airport), and most recently in Dubai. Pictured below, shared on February 19, is the busy man in the United Arab Emirates filming a commercial for Discovery Expedition.

He has already headed back to Korea, and reportedly will have a fan event to attend on Friday. Naturally, his follow up project is being highly anticipated. According to the agency, “There’s a high possibility that his next project will be a movie rather than a drama.” We will take what we can get! For now, enjoy his latest commercial below where he is a Coffee Prince.
