Take note, K-Drama fans. The 14th episode for tvN’s “Goblin” (도깨비) will be postponed to 20th January while episodes 15 and 16 will air back-to-back on 21st January. Episode 13 will air this Friday (13h January) as scheduled.
According to Sports Joseon via Soompi, a special episode will be aired in place of episode 14. The segment will explain the complicate relationships of the characters “in order for viewers to be able to enjoy the remaining story with more fun and ease”. It will also drop hints about the finale.
“Because this drama is of a genre that’s different from anything we’ve ever done before, we were very pressed for time with all the high-difficulty filming, CG, and post-production. In order to deliver the highest quality product to viewers, we will do our best for the remaining episodes,” said a production representative.
Though we’re a little bummed that we won’t catch episode 14 this week, we’re also excited to see what the special episode has to offer :)
In other news, it was speculated that Gong Yoo, who plays Kim Shin in the drama, has been having serious health problems for a while now. The actor’s label, Soop Entertainment, denied the rumours, claiming that he’s just “really tired”.
“It seems a rumour that started on Chinese social media got distorted. Gong Yoo is currently filming to the best of his ability,” added the agency.
“Goblin” revolves around Kim Shin aka the Goblin, a former Goryeo general who is tired of his immortality. The only way to end his life is to find a “goblin bride”, thus bringing his search to Ji Euntak (played by Kim Go Eun) whom he falls in love with.
The series is now available on iflix and new subbed episodes are uploaded every Saturday and Sunday, less than 24-hours of each episode’s initial broadcast.
