Meet the gloomy and handsome grim reaper of the Goblin

Now this is one grim reaper no one would ever be too sad to meet. In fact, with a psychopomp looking this good, souls might actually jump at the chance to be escorted into the afterlife by him. Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum) is looking quite chic and handsome in the latest stills and teasers from tvN’s upcoming Friday-Saturday fantasy drama The Lonely, Shining Goblin. He plays the amnesiac reaper and roommate to the titular goblin played by Gong Yoo (Big).

The story centers around the goblin and his need for a mortal bride, the key to ending his immortality. One day, a young girl with “the fate of someone who should’ve died,” played by Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap), appears and argues that she is the bride he’s been looking for. The drama centers around the strange living arrangement between the goblin who protects souls, and the reaper who takes souls, but has forgotten who he is. The cast also includes Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) as chaebol heir whose family has been looking after the goblin for generations, and Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) as a sunny chicken shop owner.

In the teaser, we see Lee Dong-wook in a black suit and hat, looking somber and melancholy as he sits next to a little boy on a bench. We catch glimpses of the boy smiling and hear him ask, “Ajusshi… am I dead?” The boy suddenly disappears from Lee Dong-wook’s side, and we hear him lament, “I had forgotten…that my immortality was a punishment.” Ooh.

So far, our first look at Goblin has been consistently moody, mysterious, and hauntingly pretty. I can’t wait to see more!

Friday-Saturday drama The Lonely, Shining Goblin will premiere on December 2.

True, the hat - he's very gloomy under that hat. Love Dong Wook (I have to giggle every time I think of him on Roommate for two seasons as the peacemaker. Bubblegum wasn't too bad, either).

A pic of him and Gong Yoo would be nice~

There's gotta be a better hat for the grim reaper. I'm pretty sure from all the people he's met-- most of are somewhat bitter anyway(because:death), certainly someone has talk-trashed that hat.

If I'm not wrong this is I need romance 3. There were many good outfit choices in this drama but as we know from science for every good fashion action there is a trashy hairy eskimo hat from hell reaction. Basic Chemistry at work here

I think this hat has meaning. Grim Reapers from the past had hats and maybe something will be connected with it. But in any case he won't be wearing it all the time. This hat is for his grim reaper mission

The Sorting Hat of Doom! It must talk!

Goblin's Sorting Hat of Doom sing me a song
Speak in my head and tell me where I belong
And when things look bad and there’s no where to run,
Wait, it's the afterlife we're going to, it'll be fun!

I am cautiously looking forward to this drama. I like two of the four leads and luckily it happens to be the pair whose story seems more interesting to me. Also unlike most beanies I don't generally dislike Kim Eun-Sook writing, like her older dramas City Hall and Secret Garden. I just hope it doesn't turn into a bore like A Gentleman's Dignity.

Lee Dong Wook and Yoo Inna. Not saying that Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun are unlikeable, I'm just not familiar at all with any of their work other than through recaps and news articles.Now that I think about it I don't know why considering that Gong Yoo is arguably the bigger star here.

Because gong yoo is the main lead and now he's a list star especially after his successive hit movies"silenced, the suspect, train to busan, the age of Shadows" and his hit drama coffee prince

I'm waiting for Lee Dong Wook's and Yoo In Na's romance as well. Especially after watching his and her teasers. And their visuals are so matchy. Can't wait to see how she'll heal my handsome and lonely Wang Yeo

Lee dong Wook & Yoo in na are going to be show stealers. Their chemistry looks sizzling than the main leads.

Forgot to comment on that new tidbit about KGE character. She insists that she's the supposed bride... so are her memories intact from when she should've died?

Did the reaper mess up somehow and put a centuries old soul in KGE's body? Is that why he has amnesia?

That's such an interesting theory! Esp when you take into account that Kim Go-eun's character "should have died". Maybe somehow Lee Dong-wook's mistake saved her life in a way. Either way, I'm anticipating this drama SO MUCH!

GY's character is one who wishes to die.

KGE's character is one who was fated to die, but never did (?).

Predictions:

Goblin will want to live after KGE's char enters, but gets a chance to die now and the chance may not appear again. Goblin is unsure of what to do, but since KGE's char was fated to die and they are friends with Mr. "Grim Grim" LDW char, they will live together in the afterlife happily ever after!

But on a more serious note, I really like the gloomy feel they are going for and I am hoping to see it throughout the entire drama. Is hoping for strong fantasy elements too a bit much? :$

Oh, I love these teasers and I like that he has a uniform for his work. It does seem like an awfully sad job to have to shuffle people along to the afterlife.

I can't wait for Yoo In Na's character to cheer him up with bright smiles and chicken!

aw, come on guys, he's probably hundreds of years old! give him some slack for his lack of fashion sense. besides, if i were a GRIM reaper, i'd probably wear GRIM clothes as well. i definitely wouldn't be wearing an Adidas hat or a snapback! haha

I know it's a romance drama at its core but these goblins are almost too pretty for me. I hope we get to see their real forms at some point in the drama. I'm watching for Gong Yoo and watching for Kim Go Eun to keep k-netizens salty mwahaha...

I didn't watch any of his previous projects, I know him from Bubblegum teasers which I never started watching for some reason and from Superman Returns in KBS ad Deabaki's Samchon. He is so adorable and attentive to the three trouble makers, Its hard to imagine him as the grimm reaper.
