The successful never rest on their laurels but it’s even more impressive when successive projects meet or exceeds expectations. Screenwriter Kim Eun Sook reportedly took 6 years of writing and preparation on recently finished fantasy drama Goblin, during which she churned out her more romance-centric hits like Descendants of the Sun, Heirs, and Secret Garden. Goblin was the first time she branched out of the central romance driven drama and penned one that was focused on humanity and life. For her next drama, she’s revealed that it’s tentatively scheduled for the first half of 2018 and will likely be a straight up sageuk. I say straight up because Goblin had extensive sageuk elements set in the Goryeo era, and Kim Eun Sook reportedly enjoyed the challenge so much she wants her next drama to be a sageuk. I’m excited to see her challenge herself and I love the sageuk parts of Goblin!
