tvN’s highly rated Korean drama, “Goblin” (도깨비) aka “Guardian: The Lonely and Great God” (쓸쓸하고 찬란하神-도깨비), officially ended last Saturday (21s January) with a double episode finale. And fans are already suffering major withdrawal symptoms.
While the cast and crew of the K-Drama is preparing to leave South Korea for their team holiday in Phuket, Thailand (so near yet so far!) in February, “Goblin” actor Lee Dong Wook (이동욱) is also gearing up for his tour.
According to The Korea Herald, Lee Dong Wook (Wang Yeo/the Grim Reaper in “Goblin”) will embark on an Asia tour to meet fans. His agency, King Kong Entertainment, confirmed that the South Korean heartthrob will kick off series of meet-and-greets in Seoul on 12th March before visiting various other locations in Asia.
“Lee has been preparing for the upcoming event in his spare time despite his hectic schedule to make up for the great love he had received,” King Kong Entertainment said.
Details are scarce for now but from what we know, his Asia tour will start in April after the official kick off in Seoul. More information (exact dates and locations) regarding Lee Dong Wook’s tour will be made available after 30th January so let’s hope that Malaysia/Singapore will be part of it!
Aside from “Goblin”, the 35-year-old actor is also known for his leading roles in 2005’s “My Girl”, 2011’s “Scent of a Woman”, and 2014’s “Hotel King”. However, it is without a doubt that “Goblin”, along with its success, helped in rebooting Lee Dong Wook’s acting career, effectively catapulting him to fame.
Meanwhile, tvN has announced that a 2-episode special containing behind-the-scenes footages will be aired on 3rd and 4th February. Don’t miss it! We know we wouldn’t ;)
We’ll leave you now with the Grim Reaper and Kim Sun’s “shipping” theme song, “I Miss You” by Sistar’s Soyou (소유). Enjoy:
