The record-breaking Korean fantasy and romance series, Goblin first aired on 2nd December 2016. It follows Kim Shin, an immortal goblin who needs to find a human bride to remove an invisible sword from his chest that will result in ending his life. One day, a bubbly high school student Ji Eun Tak confesses to him that she is the chosen one. But that’s hardly as easy as it sounds.

Several things will happen before Kim Shin’s fate is decided. Goblin ended after its first season, yet it was a successful show that fans loved for the romance, friendship, and complexities of life and death depicted in it, making it an even more interesting drama. Goblin sparked a few fashion trends as well, like the Fedora and Lanvin coat the characters wore on the show. The filming of the show began in Gimje, North Jeolla Province, on 22nd September.
