Only the Goblin sees what lurks behind the door

We’ve got three stills taken from three different angles of one scene, but there’s really not much I can decipher other than the obvious: in broad daylight, something behind an old, abandoned, ivy-covered gate catches the attention of our titular goblin played by Gong Yoo (Train to Busan, Big), giving him pause.

tvN’s new fantasy romance The Lonely, Shining Goblin is the latest project from the writer-director team of the colossal success that was Descended from the Sun. They’ve teamed up once more for a supernatural tale about a goblin named Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) who wrestles with his immortality, an irreversible fate or curse unless he acquires a human bride. His roommate is an amnesiac reaper played by Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum) with whom he has an unusual relationship. Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap) plays a girl who has “the fate of someone who should’ve died” and claims to be the goblin’s bride. Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) and Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) are also set to appear.

Taken near the end of September in Gochang County of the North Jeolla Province, these sunlit stills of Gong Yoo are a bit of a contrast from the dark and mysterious breadcrumb of a teaser that came out last week, but there’s still an air of portent that comes across. Ambiguous breadcrumbs aside, I won’t need to be asked twice to tune in; they already had me at Gong Yoo, with Kim Go-eun an added bonus.

The Lonely, Shining Goblin will premiere on December 2 after The K2 ends and air on Fridays and Saturdays.

I've read that Gong Yoo was carefully chosen clothes and accessories for his role goblin, especially this look. Maybe that's how he thinks goblin should be dressed. But besides this weird clothes, there will be suits as well.

I hope they'll release something more then goblin wearing pijama at the same field where he was wearing "something else" on other stills an another "something else" on poster with tiny goblin and his bride. tvN, give us some action. Lonley Gong Yoo is not enough to attract me to screen. And the plot was so promising...

Does anyone know what role a goblin plays in Korean mythology? The only time I've heard of a goblin is in reference to ghosts and goblins around Halloween. Just what does a goblin do except look like Gong Yoo and have a reaper roommate and wrestle with his immortality?

The Goblin caught wind of some mortal hiding behind the door, munching on what could only be a Subway deli sandwich.

I can't express how much I hate turtle necks, I feel like they make even the most handsome people look unattractive. The worst thing is that when winter comes you see them in EVERY single drama at least once.

Its the opposite for me. I LOVE turtle necks. It makes even the most unkempt person look... well kept lol. Just a bit more sophisticated.

I actually like the cardigan! I have a thing for long cardigans. I reckon Gong Yoo looks good in that outfit.

I was just out shopping at Marshall's/ T J Maxx today. They had tons of those long cardigans and poncho styles. Maybe we'll all be wearing them soon.

I think that's the goblin's joke on all of us.

I like the cardigan too, especially in the 1st shot. it has this samurai feel. I'm slightly on the fence about the all-red outfit, but I know it could have been worse without the cardigan. haha.

All your perfect imperfections ..

Ok. We've got the point of goblin and tree. Let's move on and see what's going on with Grim Reaper's fashion. I want to see Lee Dong Wook rocking some stylish suits.

Agree. Dong Wook has everything to be even international model, not only for Asia. With his mixed blood features. But It's better to have him in dramaland *so greedy me* and as a model for some brands.
Anyway, just give me some grim reaper stills!

Nobody rocks the white button down like Gong Yoo. He's got the perfect body for it. I suppose this frumpy ajumma look has something to do with his Goblin character.

You know, I'm really excited to see how this show plays out. I'll definitely invest in at least 5 episodes, if just to see the prettiness the group of actors will bring. ;) But I'm hoping I'll really stay for all the story and directing.
