tvN’s upcoming drama, “Goblin,” has held its first script read-through with the cast.
The drama, written by Kim Eun Sook and directed by Lee Eung Bok, is scheduled to air in December. The cast, which includes Gong Yoo, Lee Dong Wook, Kim Go Eun, Yoo In Na, Yook Sungjae, Kim Sung Kyum, Park Hee Bon, Hwang Suk Jung, and Lee El, held their script reading at the Nuri Dream Square Business Tower on August 30.
Although it was the first meeting for the full cast, they were completely absorbed in the script during the four-hour session. Gong Yoo is playing the goblin Kim Jin, while Kim Go Eun is playing a high school girl named Ji Eun Tak.
Lee Dong Wook showed off his charisma in the role of a grim reaper (or angel of death), while Yoo In Na made everyone laugh with her lines as Sunny, a chicken restaurant owner. Yook Sungjae, who plays Yoo Duk Hwa, the son of a wealthy family, was energetic throughout the read-through.
The production staff stated, “Writer Kim Eun Sook and producing director Lee Eung Bok took the lead. The script read-through was passionate and the actors all matched well together. We have confidence that we can make a production that will conclude 2016 with a flourish.”
