The combination of Lee Dong Wook and a cold winter beach fits perfectly into the Esquire ethos, and comes at a great time to remember Lee Dong Wook’s now most famous drama role. 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. In this pictorial for Esquire, he actually channels the Goblin character much more, the lonely Kim Shin played by Gong Yoo, a reminder that Goblin really did have incredible luck in casting two incredibly talented and equally good looking male leads to tag team their own story lines. In some ways I was happier with the ending of Goblin because Lee Dong Wook’s reaper got his final happy ending and that made me cry buckets and buckets. It’s great to see him in this pictorial and I hope next year he picks well for his drama return.
