It's no surprise that age plays an important role in Goblin: The Lonely and Great God. Our Goblin may be 939 years old in show, but how does Gong Yoo's real age actually compare to the other cast members? What about the real life ages of the Grim Reaper and Sunny? You may be surprised!

Scroll down below to find out just how the ages of each of the cast members stack up against each other!

1. Gong Yoo (Goblin) and Kim Go Eun (Ji Eun Tak)

12 year age difference

Gong Yoo: Age 37. Born July 10, 1979

Kim Go Eun: Age 25. Born July 2, 1991

While the show may lead you to believe that these characters are hundreds of years apart, in fact Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun are just 12 years apart in real life. Can you tell there's a gap while watching the show?


2. Gong Yoo (Goblin) and Lee Dong Wook (Grim Reaper)

2 year age difference

Gong Yoo: Age 37. Born July 10, 1979

Lee Dong Wook: Age 35. Born November 6, 1981

These two were clearly meant for an epic bromance. With their similar ages, it's no small wonder that they get along so well. 


3. Kim Go Eun (Ji Eun Tak) and Lee Dong Wook (Grim Reaper)

10 year age difference

Kim Go Eun: Age 25. Born July 2, 1991

Lee Dong Wook: Age 35. Born November 6, 1981

Can you tell that these two are a decade apart? It's easy to forget!


4. Yook Sung Jae (Yoo Deok Hwa) and Kim Go Eun (Ji Eun Tak)

4 year age difference

Yook Sung Jae: Age 21. Born May 2, 1995

Kim Go Eun: Age 25. Born July 2, 1991

This one surprised me! I originally thought Sung Jae was Go Eun's oppa in real life, but in fact she's his noona!


5. Lee El (Samshin) and Gong Yoo (Goblin)

3 year age difference

Lee El: Age 34. Born August 26, 1982

Gong Yoo: Age 37. Born July 10, 1979

These two may play immortal gods in the show, but they are actually just 3 years apart in real life! 


6. Yook Sung Jae (Yoo Deok Hwa), Lee Dong Wook (Grim Reaper), and Gong Yoo (Goblin)

16 year age difference / 14 year age difference

Yook Sung Jae: Age 21. Born May 2, 1995

Lee Dong Wook: Age 35. Born November 6, 1981

Gong Yoo: Age 37. Born July 10, 1979

Yook Sung Jae is the baby of the cast! Between him and Gong Yoo, there is a 16 year gap and with Lee Dong Wook, the difference is 14 years. Sung Jae really lucked out with this fantastic pair of hyungs!


7. Gong Yoo (Goblin) and Kim Sung Kyum (Chairman Yoo Shin Woo)

38 year age difference

Gong Yoo: Age 37. Born July 10, 1979

Kim Sung Kyum: Age 75. Born May 13, 1941

While the show may have led us to believe that the Goblin is centuries older than the caring Chairman who looks after him, in fact actor Kim Sung Kyum out ages Gong Yoo by almost 40 years!


8. Lee Dong Wook (Grim Reaper) and Yoo In Na (Sunny)

1 year age difference

Lee Dong Wook: Age 35. Born November 6, 1981

Yoo In Na: Age 34. Born June 5, 1982

These two are actually just one year apart - no wonder their chemistry is off the charts! Don't they fit perfectly together?
