On October 25, Lee Dong Wook and 'Goblin' scriptwriter Kim Eun Sook attended the '6th E Daily W Festa' in Seoul, where they shared various behind stories of the hit drama. This is also where Lee Dong Wook revealed his distaste for the fedora. The actor explained, "Honestly, the fedora was an item that I was strongly against. I had to retouch my hair every time I wore it, and I don't look good in fedoras. You might not think that way because you're used to it now but it's not like that."
He continued, "Same for the flashback scenes to the past. I argued with the producer back and forth about my bangs." However, Lee Dong Wook revealed, "I've received several offers for historical dramas afterward. One of them was a role of a king. But I've declined all for now."
