'Goblin' Cast And Crew To Go To Thailand
The entire cast and crew of the record-breaking hit tvN series "Goblin" announced they'll be flying to Phuket, Thailand for a vacation next month.
"The actors and production will be leaving on February 6," allkpop quoted a representative from the show as saying. "The entire cast and crew will all do their best to not miss this opportunity to bond with one another, and go on vacation to recharge and relieve themselves."
The vacation can be considered a well-deserved break after the phenomenal success of the fantasy-romance series. Written by one of South Korea's highly sought writers, Kim Eun Sook, and directed by Lee Eung Bok, the show reached its highest peak at 15.5 percent viewers rating.
Fans of Gong Yoo, who plays the goblin character named Kim Shin, might also welcome this announcement as rumors about the actor's health issues recently circulated.
A Chinese media outlet reported that the 37-year-old "Train to Busan" lead actor is suffering from health issues. The actor's management label MANAGEMENT SOOP quickly responded to the rumors.
"It's true that he's been tired lately wrapping up filming [for 'Goblin], but he does not have any severe health issues at all. Chinese fans showed concerns and wrote on SNS that Gong Yoo does not look too well," said MANAGEMENT SOOP, according to allkpop.
The "Goblin" episode Saturday was a break from the regular episodes and a special one that showed viewers more back stories into the characters and their fates. This was so the viewers can "enjoy the rest of the story as easily and as comfortably as possible" as explained by tvN, where the show is aired every Fridays and Saturdays.
The show will then continue with a regular episode 14 on January 20 and a back-to-back three-hour broadcast of episodes 15 and 16 on January 21 for its finale.
