The odd roommates and seductive chicken shop owner of The Goblin
The recent batch of stills for tvN’s upcoming drama The Lonely, Shining Goblin features Sunny, the glamorous chicken shop owner played by Yoo Inna (One More Happy Ending), and the first meeting between our titular goblin, Kim Shin, played by Gong Yoo (Big), and his amnesiac grim reaper roommate, Wang Yeo, played by Lee Dong-wook (Bubblegum).
The Lonely, Shining Goblin is the story of a goblin desperately seeking to end his immortality by finding himself a mortal bride, and his strange roommate situation with an amnesiac reaper. Kim Go-eun (Cheese in the Trap) plays Ji Eun-tak, the scrappy high-schooler with the fate of someone who should have died, claiming to be exactly who the goblin is looking for. Yook Sung-jae (Secret: Village of Achiara) stars as Yoo Deok-hwa, the chaebol heir whose family has been looking after the goblin for countless years.
As with all the stills that have been released thus far for Goblin, these aren’t the most telling of photos, although they do continue to show us that the cast is attractive, which frankly, we are well aware of already. No complaints on the pretty though.
Yoo Inna looks quite chic as the owner of a chicken shop called Pure Sexy. It’s an interesting name for a chicken shop, but if pure and sexy is the theme of the restaurant, then Yoo Inna is dressed perfectly. I’m not sure what pure and sexy has to do with chicken, but consider me intrigued.
In their first encounter, Lee Dong-wook the amnesiac reaper appears lost and concerned as he looks to Gong Yoo the goblin for answers. But the goblin seems visibly thrown, either by the reaper’s presence or some other matter. Perhaps this is how the goblin decides to take the reaper in. Refusing to help the guy with the sad puppy dog eyes and memory loss probably seems like the wrong way to go about things.
Written and directed by the team behind Descended From the Sun, tvN’s new fantasy drama The Lonely, Shining Goblin will air on Fridays and Saturdays beginning December 2 after The K2 ends its run.
