Kim So-hyun joins cameo lineup for supernatural romance Goblin

From ghost to goblin? It hasn’t been too long since Kim So-hyun wrapped her last role as a ghost in tvN’s Bring It On, Ghost, and she just confirmed that she’s making a guest appearance in Goblin, the new supernatural romance from writer Kim Eun-sook, starring Gong Yoo (Big) and Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap). Here’s the important question: Will Kim So-hyun share any scenes with her Who Are Youโ€“School 2015 co-star Yook Sung-jae? Or is that asking the universe for too much?

The new series from the writer-director team behind Descended From the Sun stars Gong Yoo as a “strangely beautiful” goblin who protects souls, and needs a human bride to end his immortal life. The drama tells the story of his bizarre relationship with Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum), a sexy and fashionable amnesiac reaper. Kim Go-eun plays a high school senior who remains optimistic despite her painful reality. Wait… the human bride is a high-schooler?! Why would you do that? Oy, with this writer.

Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) plays an immature but sweet and sunny owner of a chicken shop, and Yook Sung-jae is the thirteenth generation of a chaebol family that’s taken care of the goblin. Oh, that makes sense — in traditional folklore, goblins are tricksters who can make anything magically appear, and in most stories it’s gold. So it’s possible the goblin may be the source of the chaebol family’s wealth.

Kim So-hyun will be making a guest appearance in a fairly prominent role, and some sources say she’ll be playing a queen. Hm, could she maybe be acting alongside Kwak Dong-yeon (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds), who’s going to cameo as a king? Well now that I’m picturing it in my mind, I need these two starring in a youth drama together, stat.

Goblin will air on Fridays and Saturdays beginning in December.

The story sounds cool but am anticipating Lee Dong work and Yoo Ina's love line more (I am assuming they'll have a love line)

Same here. I like how KES writes her second couple much more then first. And those characters are always more likable for me, so I'm eager to match this drama. And Lee Dong Wook...well, how can someone resist his charms?

I'm with you on this one. It still hurts everytime I remember what the writer did to YSJ. Poor guy! I want him to have a reunion project with KSH soon.

But if the speculation is right, they both are going to be centuries apart in the story.

It's a fantasy drama with a 900 year old goblin. I'm pretty sure they can make So Hyun appear with Sunjae as a doppleganger. Anything is possible. But of course I would die in joy if So Hyunie and Sungjae have a scene together because I've been waiting for them to do a project together. Hopefully they can star as the leads to another drama soon. Let's not give up on our favorite couple!!

Whaaat?? Kim Go-eun plays a high schooler? Why couldn't they make her a college student instead?? This writer is seriously just asking for fan war regarding early marriage.

Isn't it taken care 'by the goblin' rather than 'of the goblin'? The sentence confused me :o

Damn now that she will be making a cameo it will be amazing if she has a scene with Sung-jae but I don't think it's possible.

And why does Kim Go-eun have to play a high schooler? I don't think it suits the storyline much either.

I think gf meant "that has taken care of the goblin" as in, he's been privy to his existence and responsible for hiding him all this time.

I digress, back to the ships that should sail! Haha

Lol you're not the only one. I've read every article about it posted here on DB yet every time the premise just makes me go huh? ? Oh well, maybe once it starts it'll make more sense, I mean this is KES so it can't be that complicated, right? ? Otherwise we'll just open up a to dumb for Shiny Goblin-club.

School 2015 was my first ever case of SLS. It was pretty devastating when the TaeBi ship sank.

Please, I need a scene(s) with Yook SungJae and SoHyun. Please, drama gods.

I honestly didn't even know Tae-kwang/Sung-jae was second lead until she "chose" Yi-an. I was like, "Wait, what? You've got to be kidding me!" It didn't make any sense...

After watching and crying for Gong Yoo in Train to Busan, I realised how much I adore him, and how beautiful he is....that gorgeous longgggg lean body, those impossibly long slim legs, those beautiful, longgggg tapering fingers.....Gong Yoo will be the most beautiful goblin ever, and with KGE, my favourite girl, next to him, they're going to sizzle!!!!

Since this is just a cameo, all I can hope for is a TaeBi RAFT cause the world is just too cruel and wont let me have a TaeBi SHIP.

It's okay it's cameo.
I actually mean she should slow down the pace. And wisely choose projects.
Everywhere her would not be fun.
I want to see her in really bombastic project.

Wait, what? The main heroine is supposed to be a high schooler? Unless the goblin looks much younger than I thought or there's a time skip I'm not for this.

I wonder why there's a king/queen in the drama, though. Maybe the afterlife actually has a hierarchy? Or maybe the afterlife is supposed to take place in an older setting. Fusion saeguk, anyone?

The goblin is 900-something years old, so the king and queen must be from his past.

Not sure about the rest, but Kim So Hyun is home-schooled and her grades are apparently pretty good too. Don't know how she finds the time with her busy schedule.

I was reading k-netizens comments on this article...can you believe that they wanted Kim So Hyun to play the leading lady instead of Kim Go Eun? That's crazy.... because then the age gap between KSH and GY would be 20 years, plus she's a minor too...!

They also said the same thing for Moonlovers...as in if we had SoHyun as the leading lady instead of IU, ratings would have been much higher.

After coming across so many negative and unnecessary comments about Kim Go-eun, I think they'd take a jar of kimchi as a leading lady over her... Which is a crying shame, but I just smh w/ those ppl/comments and move.

I've been patiently awaiting this drama, so any news from Dramabeans about it makes me a happy fangirl. :)

Idk how, but please make a Kim So-hyun x Sung-jae reunion happen! They already missed their chance w/ Ghost, so the fact that this is happening means their reunion should happen, too.

I was quite disappointed to find out Kim Go-eun would be playing a high schooler, too. I'd rather she be the twenty-something that she is! Still too excited to care anymore, though.

How old is Kwak Dong-yeon anyway?

And thank you for the tidbit about goblins being associated w/ wealth. That really clear things up and makes me even more intrigued to find out more!

He's 19. If these two really a couple, then Dongyeon hit jackpot as he confessed that he like Sohyun before.

Lee Dong Wook will not play the very leading role, that's true, but his character is as much important (or even more) as KGE. This story is about Goblin and Reaper after all. I don't mind Gong Yoo being main lead from among all of them, just give my Lee Dong Wook proper storyline and let him shine in this drama.

Ah, she'd be the perfect queen for Kwak Dongyeon. They're both really adorable, work that chemistry babiessss <3

Can't picture her anymore with Sungjae after his WGM stint with Joy, SJ and Joy looked perfect with each other lol
