The enchanting ladies of The Lonely, Shining Goblin

Teasers are out for the two bewitching heroines of tvN’s upcoming The Lonely, Shining Goblin. Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap) takes on the role of a girl with “the fate of someone who should’ve died” who purports to be the titular goblin’s mortal bride and the solution to ending his immortality. Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending) plays a cheerful chicken shop owner who’s always surrounded by eager suitors. The Lonely, Shining Goblin is the story of a goblin, played by Gong Yoo (Big), and his peculiar roommate situation with an amnesiac reaper, played by Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum). Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) also stars as a chaebol heir whose family has been looking after the goblin for several generations.

In the first teaser, we see Kim Go-eun in a room surrounded by flickering candles and glass ornaments, and the effect is warm and cozy. She’s got her eyes on the candle before her, and she muses to herself, “The time I fall in love…” before counting to three and blowing out the candle. A dark figure appears before her (hey, Gong Yoo), and she smiles as she finishes her thought: “When I turn off the lights…he comes to me.”

In the second teaser, Yoo Inna admires her beauty in the mirror and clutches a jade ring before setting it down. At the gym she struts confidently in formfitting workout gear, distracting a dude on the treadmill and causing him to fall. But he recovers and scrambles into pushup mode, trying to look cool in front of her. Her soundbite: “When you are falling from the world, and someone pushes you back towards it, that’s the moment when God was with you.”

If summoning Gong Yoo were as simple as extinguishing a candle, I’m sure we’d all be blowing out tapers left and right until we turned blue in the face. And that fall sequence in Yoo Inna’s teaser was so hilarious and perfectly timed, I had to replay it. So far, all the beautiful and mysterious teasers have been very effective in ramping up my excitement and intrigue, not that there was much heavy lifting involved to begin with when you have Gong Yoo as leading man/“monster.” December can’t come soon enough.

tvN’s The Lonely, Shining Goblin will premiere on December 2 and air on Fridays and Saturdays.

The K2 finishes on November 12th...Goblin starts on December 2nd. It is taking over the K2 slot but wondering what will air in those 2 weeks in between.

Not a fan of the gratuitous ass shot of Yoo In Na...but whatevs...

I've been burned by so many dramas this year that had good looking teasers/trailers; the fact that these look well done actually makes me nervous.

Alternatively, all the dramas that looked horrible when trailers and stills first came out have been surprisingly good. What gives?

The scene where the guy falls after watching her reminded me of this youtube video that went viral for a bit, maybe they even got the idea from there haha

It's pretty much the same situation where the guy is checking out this lady as she walks past and slips on the treadmill. She turns around to look and he pretends he's doing push ups to look cool.

I've seen the I-want-to-become-mortal thing a few times, and I always wonder "Have you really thought this through?".

I want to see one of those shows end with the postscript 60 years later, showing the feeble old guy with an assortment of painful and/or terminal ailments saying "Oh, sh.....".

Or maybe "No, actually, she wasn't worth this".

Ah, yess! Finally something from the ladies.
They both look great!

It looks like the main couple will be all about finding each other but I like that the second couple seems to have a little bit more going on individually. I wonder what Yoo In Na's jade ring is about.

It is! I always really love those jade rings I see in saeguks, too. The one in the teaser looks a little more modern but it still has that classic look.

I guess I don't watch enough sageuks to recall the jade rings you're talking about, but I'm sure they're just as pretty as the one in the teaser. I'm more familiar with jade bracelets as I grew up seeing the ladies in my family and my culture wear them. Now that I'm older, I've grown to like the jade bracelets, but I can't get myself to wear them though since as far as I know, it requires quite a bit of oils/lotion and a lot of painful squeezing! Anyways, I actually bought myself a jade ring on Amazon awhile back ago, so I'd totally love to have the one shown in the teaser.

@Van

Sorry for my late reply. Yes, the rings are usually wedding rings so you might not see them often but I really like the look of them.
I like the jade bracelets as well! Jade is just such a pretty material.

I'm boycotting this drama. As much as i love the two main guys and the writer, both these girls are F list stars who got too much plastic surgery done.

I doubt KGE had any plastic surgery bc if she does, she'll start with her eyes. Anyway, if you'll boycott every drama with F-list stars who had plastic surgery then you might as well don't watch any Kdrama at all

Lol why do I feel like the first is a commercial for scented candles and the second for diet pills?

I feel less motivated to watch it after seeing these teasers tbh. The whispery feel and wishy-washy colors aren't my thing. The gym-scene was kind of funny and well-executed by the actor, but it didn't make me laugh. For the cast's sake I'll keep it on my list and possibly give it a chance, but not really impressed so far.

Yeah, I totally couldn't help thinking that Kim Go-eun's teaser was (already!) a PPL for some candle brand.

Me too. In my case I think it's because of the excessive use of pink filters. Like why? It's ugly as sh*t.

I swear that's the same candle brand Kang Mo Yeon used in DoTs, but I'd have to go back and look. The ring also is obviously some brand they are trying to highlight. They do both look like CFs. Not really too appealing.

Yup, those candles are KMY's candles back in DOTS :))))

The fastest PPL ever shown! they manage to sneak in at the teasers...

Yup, those are definitely the same candles. At least they can be assured that their PPL worked the last time in DOTS because I noticed they were the same candles the moment they showed up in the teaser above. LOL

Digressing from the topic, I love Gong Yoo but so far the Lee Dong Wook + Yoo In Na loveline seems more interesting to me than the main couple.

lol one thing I learned recently. PPL was only legalized on Feb. of 2010 in Korea.

Yoo Inna's teaser was funny.

I'm not that excited about this drama, but I really like Yoo Inna so I hope her character is a good one.

I'm not familiar with Kim Go-eun, but she looks pretty and mature with her black hair compared to the CITT photos I saw of her.

Yoo Inna so far is outshining Kim Go-eun. She's prettier too. And I can't believe there is PPL in the teasers already lol

Nothing against the main pair, I've never really seen Kim Go Eun in anything before so I don't know what to feel. But I am a serious Yoo In-na fan, so its always nice to see her in screen. For me, definitely the second leads are the romance angle that I look forward to most along with Gong Yoo.

She is one of the young talented movie actresses in Chungmuro. She's only been in 1 drama before this one.

Kim So eun looks like a cross between Suzy and Park So Dam.
Yoo Inna looks perfect as usual, but her curse is to look like a typical plastic surgery perfect face.

I hope this drama is good.... waiting...
