The popular K-drama "Goblin" starring Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun welcomed the viewers with a stunning visual and fascinating storyline that displays mythical creatures - from lovable Grim Reaper to the charismatic Dokkaebi, also known as the nature deity, goblin.
First aired in December 2016, the fantasy rom-com series is penned by veteran screenwriter Kim Eun Sook, whose famous works includes mega hit series such as "Lovers in Paris," "The Heirs," and "Descendants of the Sun"
"Goblin" follows the story of a 900 year old Kim Shin, played by Gong Yoo, who is a former general during the Goryeo dynasty.
In the drama, his mission to find his bride who holds the ability of ending his life by pulling out the sword, struck in his heart.
Fortunately, he encounters a high school student named Ji Eun Tak, portrayed by Kim Go Eun, who has the power to see the dead and claims to be the Goblin's bride.
Unfortunately, the two fall in love, which makes it harder for Eun Tak to do her duty as the Goblin's bride.
Apart from Kim Shin and Ji Eun Tak's blossoming love affair, a budding romance also builds with the grim reaper and a beautiful Sunny, played by Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na.
With its out of the ordinary story, "Goblin" achieved soaring viewership ratings and gained millions of viewers not just in South Korea but all over the world.
After almost four years since its finale, here's what keeping Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na busy this 2021.
