Lee Dong Wook is indeniably one of most enjoyable characters to watch in tvN’s "Goblin".
While the public is well aware that “Goblin” screenwriter, Kim Eun Sook, spent five years trying to cast Gong Yoo in one of her dramas, it is not the case for Lee Dong Wook. As a matter of fact, Lee Dong Wook had to fight until the end to receive the role of the grim reaper.
The scriptwriter had originally refused him to be part, as he didn’t fit with the image of the grim reaper she had in mind. Even after a representative from Lee Dong Wook’s agency tried to encourage her, Kim Eun Sook still not convinced. However, Lee Dong Wook was too strong to give for the role.
