This Goblin actor confesses to being mesmerised by Gong Yoo's beauty

Says his mind went blank looking at Gong Yoo's handsome face

Actor Kim Min-jae as Wang Yeo and Gong Yoo as Kim Shin from 'Goblin.'

Gong Yoo, one of the top Asian actors, is also liked for his good looks. Now a fellow actor who co-starred with him in 'Goblin: The Lonely and Great God' has confessed that he was mesmerised by Gong Yoo's beauty.

As noted by Soompi, rapper and actor Kim Min-jae was filming for an upcoming episode of KBS2 TV's 'Happy Together' along with his 'Greatest One-Shot' co-stars Lee Deok-hwa, Cha Tae-hyun, Yoon Shi-yoon. He had played the younger version of the fictional Goryeo king Wang Yeo. He had a few scenes with the 'Train to Busan' actor, especially one key scene where he had to kill Yoo's character Kim Shin.

It is here that Kim Min-jae said, "I ran into an unexpected difficulty while filming the drama."

He revealed, "In the drama, my character had to kill Gong Yoo's character. I was supposed to look at him with jealousy and hatred, but he's so handsome that I found myself just staring at him, my mind going blank."

He added, "Even as a fellow guy, I can't deny how handsome Gong Yoo is. That's what made it so hard for me to kill him."

Following this confession, 'Happy Together' MC Yoo Jae-suk asked, "How do you feel going from Gong Yoo to us here?" The actor appeared to be at a loss for words, trying to come up with a proper reply. Cha Tae-hyun then joked, "He'd probably have no problem killing you. It wouldn't be an issue." This had everyone in laughing.

In 'Goblin,' the young king Wang Yeo's mind was corrupted by the eunuch Park Joong-heon, played by actor Kim Byung-chul, who made him suspect Kim Shin of treachery and treason. Wang Yeo then reincarnates as a Grim Reaper, played by Lee Dong-wook, who unwittingly becomes the Goblin Kim Shin's best friend. However, his memories eventually return and he comes to terms with his actions in the past life. When he confesses to the Goblin though, their friendship breaks. However, by the end of the drama, Kim Shin forgives the Reaper.

The 'Happy Together' episode featuring Kim Min-jae will air on June 8 at 11:10 p.m. KST.
