Food fights and cuddling in posters for The Lonely Shining Goblin
These new official posters for The Lonely Shining Goblin are eye-catching and elegant; they almost look more like they belong to a fashion spread in a glossy magazine than drama promo material. And it doesn’t hurt that we’ve got quite the polished, sophisticated-looking cast (having what looks like the world’s most elegant food fight).
The main poster above features the two leads, Gong Yoo (Big) and Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap), playing an immortal goblin and his young human bride, respectively. In the additional posters, we also have Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum) playing a reaper and the goblin’s roommate; he’s paired with Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending), who plays a (human) chicken shop owner. They’ve got a flirty poster all to themselves, all dressed to the nines and looking saucy.
That leaves Yook Sung-jae (Village: Secret of Achiara) as the fifth wheel, although at least that means he gets to eat while the goblin and the reaper have their angry staredown? (I particularly enjoy how they’re glowering over a pepper mill as though it’s a sword, or something important.) Yook plays a chaebol character who’s descended from a family that has been looking after the goblin for many generations.
I’m sure I’ll be looking forward to the melancholy fantasy romance once it’s in action (as well as the secondary romance, which I hope will be quirky and fun) but for now I’m actually more excited about the promised bromance, with the trio of leading men making for an unconventional friendship. Based on the posters it looks like the goblin and reaper will be at each other’s throats (nothing like living together to bring out the aggression, yes?), although that’s the thing about being a goblin and/or reaper: They can’t kill each other ’cause they don’t die. Guess they’ll just have to hug it out eventually.
The Lonely Shining Goblin will premiere on Friday, December 2, as tvN’s next weekend drama.
