Recent details pertaining to "Goblin" centers on the series folding and the possibility of having another sequel. With that in mind, having Lee Dong Wook and Song Hye Kyo along with the "Train to Busan" star Gong Yoo would surely spark the storyline.

"Goblin" gained unprecedented success owing to its storyline and the stars involved in the project. Meanwhile, as for the possibility of having Song Hye Kyo onboard, that notion remains unsettled and unverified.

Moreover, a report from Jakarta Post shared that while the "Goblin" series has folded, a new series is already underway. According to the report, yet another fantasy romance series "Tomorrow With You" is set to follow the recently concluded hit tvN series "Goblin" or "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God," which featured a hybrid of modern times and traditional Korean folktale elements .

The same report mentioned that the series replacing "Goblin" is a love story featuring time travel and mystery, "Tomorrow With You" is a "a mix of genres," according to its producer Yoo Je-won, who spoke at a press conference in Seoul on Monday.

Given the strong success of the "Goblin," it is understandable why the segment achieved successful returns and positive feedbacks. However, not all reports about the segment featured a positive tone.

For one, Lee Dong Wook and Gong Yoo were tagged in a speculation regarding their roles in the series. report from Asia Starz News mentioned all eyes have turned towards Lee Dong Wook and Gong Yoo and both stars managed to amplify their roles and ensure that each episode is well taken and done, but despite the rising notions for the segment, there has been no word of confirmation that supports the idea that Lee Dong Wook was not the first choice.

For the fans and followers of the "Goblin" series, it remains unsettled whether Song Hye Kyo would be joining the cast for another run of epic love and fairytale. Moreover, the creators have not confirmed the rumors of having another sequel, thus all notions should be taken with a grain of salt in mind.
