One of the reasons I’m so stoked for the upcoming SBS fantasy romance The King: Eternal Monarch is to hopefully see the redemption of Kim Go Eun. I LOVED Goblin but I really didn’t like character, and it was the sheer overwhelming love for the other three leads that helped overcome her naive wide-eyed blankness as a personality. She played a high schooler like a middle schooler, and did a great job with the acting if that was how Ji Eun Tak was written, but it really did mar her amazing rise as a truly unique actress especially after Cheese in the Trap. Kim Eun Sook did her wrong in Goblin and now has a chance to make it right and I’m loving the first look at her character in The King, so cool and adult and got her shit together. Hallelujah, let Kim Go Eun rise again!
