There may be a new grim reaper in town with Song Seung Heon doing a solid and smexy job in OCN drama Black, but Lee Dong Wook has cemented his dorky and dutiful grim reaper image from Goblin so firmly he stands in his own special corner forever.

It’s great to see him in this pictorial and I hope next year he picks well for his drama return. Continue reading
