After finishing “Goblin”, Kim Go Eun was also quite cautious when deciding to accept the invitation to participate in new projects.
Besides movies like Sunset In My Hometown, Tune In For Love,..she decided to collaborate with Lee Min Ho in the movie The King: Eternal Monarch in 2019.
Although controversial, but this is a successful movie when it received many compliments from the audience. Not to mention, after the movie ended, she and Lee Min Ho had many dating rumors.
This year, the actress returned with the drama “Yumi’s Cell” with Ahn Bo Hyun and Jin Young (GOT7). The film has also created a fever and is well received by the audience.
3. Lee Dong Wook
After the end of Goblin, Lee Dong Wook is quite active in dramas again. From Touch Your Heart (2019), Strangers From Hell (2019) to Tale Of The Nine Tailed (2020), the actor did not hesitate to take on many different types of roles.
Although he admits that he is still dependent on the shadow of the god of death in the movie Goblin, the audience can see the diversity in his acting. In particular, the A-list male star always shows his closeness and simplicity that the audience always loves.
4.Yoo In Na
After rising thanks to the role of the lover of the god of death in Goblin, Yoo In Na has gradually asserted herself in the acting village.

After the end of Goblin, male singer and actor Yook Sungjae did not have many changes in his acting career. He mainly focuses on music productions.
Before that, he was known for his outstanding comedy ability in the movie Goblin as the elf’s nephew. Not to mention, his lovely interactions with the characters in the film make the audience even more excited.
And then it wasn’t until 2020, that viewers could see Sungjae again in the movie “Mystic Pop-up Bar” with Hwang Jung Eum. But unfortunately, the failure of the film could not make him shine like the previous work.
This year, Sungjae has no plans to return, but fans still hope to see him in an acting role as soon as possible.

Although the success of season 1 makes the audience want Goblin to start a season 2. However, Kim Eun-sook once revealed that Goblin is not a bright name for her to start season 2.
