On August 30th, the complete cast of tvN‘s upcoming drama Goblin recently gathered for the drama’s first script reading session, which lasted four hours.
There is much anticipation for this drama not only because of the star-studded cast line-up, but also because well-known producers will be creating Goblin. This upcoming drama will be directed by Lee Eung Bok and is written by Kim Eun Sook. Lee Eung Bok directed hit K-dramas, including KBS2‘s Descendants of the Sun and Secret Love. Kim Eun Sook worked with Lee Eung Bok for Descendants of the Sun and was the writer for SBS drama The Heirs.
The cast will include fan-favorites: Coffee Prince‘s Gong Yoo, Cheese in the Trap’s Kim Go Eun, Hotel King‘s Lee Dong Wook, and You Who Came from the Stars’ Yoo In Na. The most recent addition to the main cast list is BTOB‘s youngest member, Yook Sungjae.
The drama’s plot revolved around the story of how a magic creature invades the body of a man, portrayed on screen by Gong Yoo, in pursuance for an end of his immortal life.
A production staff commented on the casts’ chemistry during the first reading session, stating, “Writer Kim Eun Sook and PD Lee Eung Bok took the lead. Gong Yoo with Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook, Yoo In Na etc are actors with competent acting skills. Because of such a line-up, the script reading venue was as passionate as ever. We are confident that it will be another production that will end the year 2016 with a blast.”
Goblin is expected to air on tvN in December on Fridays and Saturdays.
