Lee Dong Wook has comes to rescue of his fans who are single on Valentine's Day. The actor who played the role of the grim reaper in the hit tvN show Goblin, has listed out three of his favorite films for single folks like him.
During an interview with a Korean media outlet, the actor picked out "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," Japanese blockbuster "Love Letter," and Hollywood film "Deadpool" as the perfect watch for people who are yet to meet their valentine.
Recently it was reported that Dong Wook was so determined in grabbing the role of Goblin that he even bribed the writer, Kim Eun Sook with a flight ticket. However, the actor, who usually plays the lead role, was even happy to play the secondary man in the drama.
Though Goblin officially ended its 16-episode run on Jan. 21, reports regarding a possible sequel is doing the rounds. According to Nielsen Korea, as reported by Soompi, "the Goblin finale recorded a viewership rating of 20.5 percent, setting a new record and earning the number one spot as the most watched cable television drama, a title previously held by "Reply 1988" with 18.8 percent."
Also known as Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, the series narrated the story of a Joseon warrior Kim Shin and his curse for an eternal life. To break the 900-year old quest, he needs the help of a human bride Ji Eun Tak. The supernatural bromance, perfectly timed romance and the mysterious past definitely made the fans go frenzy. Its final episode recorded an epic nationwide audience share making it the highest rated drama in Korean cable television history, beating Reply 1988.
On the other hand, Dong Wook is all set to kickstart his Asia fan meeting tour in Seoul on March 12. The meet-and-greet event in Seoul will take place at the Blue Square Samsung Card Hall.
