To make your starting of the year refreshing, guess what? Yes, your right! I brought up with another extremely interesting K-drama. The “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God“, greatly known as “Goblin” is a South Korean television series starring Gong Yoo, Lee Dong-wook, Kim Go-eun, Yoo In-na and Yook Sung-jae. It airs on cable network tvN every Friday and Saturday at 20:00 started from December 2, 2016.
Personally, I really love this drama. In fact, everyone around me has fallen love with it!
So now, are you excited to start your New year with a fantastic drama? Then what are you waiting for? Let’s move on!🏃
Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is a goblin who is also a protector of souls. He lives together with an amnesiac grim reaper (Lee Dong-wook) who is in charge of taking deceased souls. Together the two of them see the dead off into the afterlife. One day Kim Shin meets a girl, Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) who is destined to be his bride. She has a special ability to see ghosts. Because of a birthmark she has, she is often called as the Goblin’s bride by the ghosts.
