Once the cast is finalized, the shooting will commence.

Gong Yoo has been busy doing movies and is now returning back to television after four years. Fans are excited about his comeback to the small screen and with Kim Eun Sook as the writer who has written many hit dramas like “A Gentleman’s Dignity,” “Secret Garden,” the drama is being highly anticipated.

The story line of “Goblin” is about a goblin and a grim reaper. The goblin searches for a human bride so that his immortal life comes to an end while the grim reaper suffers from amnesia. Later, they both start living together and helped the souls of the dead enter into another world.
