Kim So Hyun Makes Special Appearance Role in Goblin with Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun


Young K-actress Kim So Hyun may have had a solid outing this summer with Let’s Fight Ghost, hands down my favorite fun and meaningful K-drama, but she’s certainly striking while the iron remains hot in scheduling her next role. It’s not a large part but the choice of doing this drama shows that Kim So Hyun is super savvy about her acting career exposure. Kim So Hyun will be joining the cast of upcoming tvN fantasy drama Goblin, playing the role of a queen in what is being billed as a special appearance.

Now she’s been a leading lady in her own right, I guess the days of being the child counterpart to the leading lady are over. This reminds me when Yoo Seung Ho played the heavenly king role in Arang and the Magistrate. It’s not how big the role is, it’s how memorable and the reach of the drama, and Goblin being Kim Eun Sook‘s next drama after Descendants of the Sun guarantees buzz and audience interest, all of which is a great use of Kim So Hyun’s time to play a special role with less crazy filming schedule but get the benefit of being in a highly anticipated production.

Filming has started on the drama headlining Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook, and Yoo In Na, and even better if Kim So Hyun has scenes with Goblin supporting actor Yook Sung Jae, their chemistry and acting synergy in Who Are You: School 2015 was outstanding.

      • I am a YEH fan, thought she was great in Coffee Prince, and am fine with it.

        New blood=yes in terms of her age. But not really, since So Eun is already popular and has several years of experience. She is arguably equal to Kim Go Eun in terms of popularity, or even more so.

        Chemistry=hopefully non-romantic. So Eun is 17. GY is 20 years older than So Eun.

        This seems like a scenario where her star appearance could overshadow the drama. Fore example, the guest appearances in BIG and Suzy’s growing screen time. Good for her, but overall may take away from the drama. Her appearance does make me more likely to watch it though.

      • Edit So Eun to So Hyun in my reply below. Off track due to typo in title of article and first line of this article. Too early for all of us.

  1. I really liked Let’s Fight Ghost, but is anyone really going to turn down a role in Goblin no matter how small? I don’t think so. Koala is right…less stress and high visibility.
