Korea’s Hottest New Drama Goblin Premieres on iflix
Kuala Lumpur (7 December 2016) — iflix, the world’s leading Internet TV service for emerging markets, offering subscribers unlimited access to thousands of TV shows, movies and more, is thrilled to announce the premiere of the highly-anticipated K-drama Goblin, now available in Malaysia. Fast tracked from Korea, two new, fully subtitled episodes will be available on iflix to both stream and download each week, every Saturday and Sunday, less than 24-hours of each episode’s initial broadcast, beginning December 3.
Helmed by the acclaimed director-writer team of Lee Eung-bok and Kim Eun-sook, the geniuses behind the massive hit Descendants of the Sun, the storyline follows Kim Shin (Gong Yoo, Train to Busan), a handsome goblin – The Protector of Souls – who is desperate to end his own immortal life by marrying a human. He meets Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun, A Muse), an optimistic high school girl whom he falls passionately in love with. Kim Shin’s roommate Wang Yeo (Lee Dong Wook, Scent of a Woman) is the very attractive grim reaper – The Angel of Death – who in addition to taking souls to the afterlife, also happens to suffer from amnesia. The plot thickens with the introduction of Kim Sun (Yoo In-na, Secret Garden), the lovely and clever chicken shop girl who falls for the Angel of Death. The Goblin’s once simple plan to end his life, becomes increasing complicated as he and the Grim Reaper wrestle with their growing emotions and responsibilities.
Goblin joins iflix’s extensive library of popular and highly-acclaimed Korean dramas, including the award-winning fantasy drama Secret Garden, hit romance drama Scent of a Woman, successful drama Princess Hours, successful spin-off drama Prince Hours, and many more.
