Hong Kong Turner Asia Pacific has confirmed the acquisition of upcoming fantasy-drama series Goblin for its Korean entertainment channel Oh!K. Debuting on December 3, within 24 hours of its premiere in Korea, the series stars Gong Yoo, one of the most popular Korean actors who recently starred in the runaway big-screen success Train to Busan. Now, in his first small-screen role in four years, Gong Yoo plays a goblin looking for a human bride to end his immortality.


Lee Dong Wook (Hlow-res-ohkotel King) also joins the star-studded cast, as a grim reaper with amnesia. The goblin’s love interest is portrayed by Kim Go Eun, who recently won the Best New TV Actress gong at the Paeksang Arts Awards. The series is written by Kim Eun Sook, responsible for the hugely successful series The Heirs and Descendants of the Sun, and is directed by Lee Eung Bok who also directed the latter.
