Scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook, who wrote many hits such as 'Descendants of the Sun', 'Secret Garden', 'Lovers in Paris', 'On Air', and more, revealed that she has constantly been rejected by actor Gong Yoo.
At the press conference for new tvN drama 'Goblin', Kim Eun Sook said, "I've been rejected by Gong Yoo for 5 years." She continued, "He politely rejected. I was cautious about making the offer for this drama, and I thought that I'll have to wait long but he gave me a fast response. He told me that he'll do the role if I'm okay with a goblin who's timid and fearful."

Gong Yoo spoke up and explained, "I became afraid of dramas. It was a personal problem. This time, I met her because I wanted to give words of appreciation for continuously giving me affection. When we met, we talked, and I heard about the drama. I was able to open my heart after 2-3 hours of meeting."
'Goblin', written by Kim Eun Sook and starring Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Yoo In Na, Lee Dong Wook, and more is set to air starting December 2.
