Though Gong Yoo did star in her mega-hit tvN's 'Goblin', it seems the collaboration didn't come easy. On the casting process, she revealed, "I get rejected a lot too, so when an actor eventually approaches me, I fall in love with that actor as a character. I sincerely only think of the actor or actress. Once the drama is over, I hope for their success and hope they film a lot of commercials."

As for who's turned down her roles the most, Kim Eun Sook shared, "Gong Yoo is the actor who rejected me the most. After trying persistently, he came to work with me for 'Goblin'. Looking at the scenes, I felt so proud. He's a great actor."

Kim Eun Sook is the mind behind dramas like 'Descendants of the Sun', 'Heirs', 'Secret Garden', 'Signal', and 'A Gentleman's Dignity'. Her next drama is 'Mr. Sunshine' starring Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Byun Yo Han.

Can you imagine someone else playing the lead role in 'Goblin'?
