Goblin is the latest K-drama offering from the Land Of Morning Calm and it has already set hearts and minds racing in Korea and beyond – not least because it stars one of the hottest actors in Asian show business at the moment.
The epic fantasy drama is the latest project by Kim Eun-sook, the scriptwriter behind the smash-hit military drama Descendants Of The Sun. Kim, who also penned high school romance The Heirs, says she rummaged through historical documents and spiced them up with imagination to create a fantasy series based on Korean folklore.
“Not much research has been done on dokkaebi (Korean goblins), so there was a lot of room for storytelling,” Kim told reporters in Seoul.
All that research has paid off as Goblin is currently sailing high in viewer ratings with K-drama fans falling over themselves in anticipation for upcoming episodes of the fantasy tale. Here, we outline 10 reasons why you should start binge-watching Goblin right now:
