Living forever can get old after a while. Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is a goblin who has immortal life as he watches over people’s souls. He lives with Wang Yeo (Lee Dong Wook), the grim reaper who suffers from amnesia but nevertheless does his job to help usher people’s souls into the afterlife. Shin’s nephew, Yoo Deok Hwa (Yook Sungjae), is a rebellious chaebol heir whose family has been caretakers of the goblin for generations. As Shin becomes tired of his immortal life, he contemplates whether to find a human bride to help him become human. Could Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun), an optimistic high school student who falls in love with Shin, or Kim Sun (Yoo In Na), the likeable owner of a chicken restaurant, hold the key to Shin’s future? “Goblin” is a 2016-2017 South Korean drama series directed by Lee Eung Bok.
