I thought screenwriter Kim Eun Sook was taking on a lot with her expansive medical disaster zone romance drama Descendants of the Sun, now it looks like she was just warming up for larger scale set pieces in upcoming fantasy drama Goblin. The stills and teasers so far have been melancholy and contemplative for the most part, whatever character or narrative intensity has been shown in a pensive way.
This latest preview is a cannon shot of action, showing goblin Gong Yoo in period costume fighting a bloody battle wearing armor and wielding a sword. The voiceover says he’s both darkness and light, and has been living for a long time like this. He meets Kim Go Eun‘s high school student in the present and she calls him out for being a goblin, claiming she can see the supernatural. She says that in two hundred years she will be his bride, and the subtitle says that only the goblin’s bride can pull out the sword. Interesting, interesting indeed.
