Korean Drama “Goblin” returns on ABS-CBN
Relive the award-winning fantasy love story top-billed by Korean actor Gong Yoo, who plays the well-loved character of Kim Shin, a man cursed to live forever as a Goblin or immortal protector of souls. After 900 years, he finally meets a woman that can end the curse, Erin, the Goblin’s bride. He, however, falls in love with the sweet and innocent young lady and risks both their lives in the name of love.
Don’t miss the return of “Goblin,” after “The Promise of Forever” on November 11, 2017, Monday, only in the first and true home of Asianovelas, ABS-CBN.
In ancient times, Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an unbeatable general in wars, but the young King (Kim Min-Jae) is jealous of Kim Shin and kills him. Kim Shin becomes Dokkaebi (Goblin), possessing an immortal life. At first, he thinks that he is blessed, but he realizes that he is cursed.
Closer to the present day, Kim Shin has waited 900 years for a human bride to end his immortal life. One night, he saves a dying pregnant woman (Park Hee-Von) who is destined to die. Meanwhile, the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-Wook) is unable to find the dead pregnant woman. The woman gives birth to a baby girl named Ji Eun-Tak (later played by Kim Go-Eun). 9 years later, Ji Eun-Tak lives with her mother and is able to see ghosts. One night, her mother suddenly dies. On that night, she meets the Grim Reaper.
In the present day, Ji Eun-Tak is a high school student. She still sees ghosts and hears their whisper of “Dokkaebi’s bride.” She now lives with her aunt’s family, but she is mistreated by them. On her birthday, Ji Eun-Tak sits by the sea with a lighted birthday cake. At that time, Kim Shin suddenly appears in front of her. Kim Shin does not know why, but he can hear her voice and appears in front of her against his will. Coincidentally, Kim Shin lives with the Grim Reaper at the same house.
