Her Appearance in Goblin
Having a chance to be part of the drama Goblin, made Park Kyung-hye very grateful. While the shooting period was coming to an end in the early part of 2017, Park celebrated her birthday. She was congratulated by many of the cast, including the lead actors, Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun. He even gave her a beautiful gift.
As reported by Allkpop, actress Park Kyung-hye talked about performing alongside Gong Yoo in Goblin. She narrated what happened on her birthday, when they were filming for the drama. “We filmed once on my birthday. Kim Go Eun sunbae told Gong Yoo sunbae that it was my birthday. He told me happy birthday and gave me a handshake, so I was able to spend a very thankful birthday,” she said.
The actress was obviously very happy that a star as renowned as Gong Yoo made sure to wish her ‘Happy Birthday’. Gong Yoo is extremely popular, especially among women. During a special appearance on SBS’s Running Man, it was announced that Gong Yoo has been setting fire to the hearts of women from 10 to 50, he didn’t need to pay attention to her birthday. But the fact he did reveals his sweet nature. “It was a more valuable gift than anything else. I was just happy and thankful that I was able to film with Gong Yoo sunbae,” the actress gushed.
Kyung-hye also revealed that she didn’t get to film many scenes with the Train to Busan actor. “I don’t really have many scenes with Gong Yoo-sunbaenim. Most of my scenes are getting scared by his character and running away,” she said. Park Kyung-hye played a version of the virgin ghost, with flowing black hair, pale skin, and wearing the type of white dress that we see in so many horror movies. However, Kyung-hye’s character is cute and funny, and sometimes causes unintended trouble for Kim Go-eun’s character, Ji Eun-tak. Then the Goblin has to come and save his bride from trouble.
However, she noted that it was Kim Go-eun who told Gong Yoo about her birthday. In a very recent interview with OSEN, as mentioned by ILoveKStars, the actress talked about Kim Go-eun and said “Kim Go Eun has a lot of charm, and I fell in love even, if I am a woman,” adding “Most of the time I was with Kim Go Eun, I took all meals, warm coffee and snacks.”
She also said that her ghost character wasn’t created to be a nuisance to Eun-tak, but was initially was a lonely soul and thanked Kim Go-eun, both in-character as the ghost as well as being herself, saying “Thank you for being my friend in a difficult world.”
The cast and crew of ‘Goblin’ were headed to Thailand’s Phuket island on February 6. Hopefully, she’ll be travelling with them and come back with even sweeter memories with the co-stars.
Such a lucky, talented girl! She deserves more attention 😉
