Korean dramas first spring to mind when we talk of the romance genre of television. Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, popularly known as Goblin, is one of the most successful shows and the most watched K-drama in the entire globe. Joo Kyung-ha and Kim Ji-Yeon of Studio Dragon designed the show’s format. The angle from which a goblin lives—one who wears a bleeding sword in his breast and has been given perpetual life as payment—is what draws the spectator into the romantic story. It is more exciting because of the twists and turns of life and death. The show’s first season premiered in Korea on tVN on December 2, 2016. Each episode lasted around one hour and twenty-two minutes and finished on January 21, 2017. Series available with subtitles on Viki and DramaFever for those outside of Asia. With the publication of “Goblin,” it gains recognition as a massively successful Korean drama. Goblin’s tale is unique and imaginative since it has a high TV rating for viewership.
Guardian The Lonely and Great God Season 2 Release Date
Despite being extremely popular, Kdramas frequently do not renew their series. They hold high regard for the craft of storytelling and will not continue a series only for financial gain. As of now, there has been no formal announcement of the release of Season 2. There will be a new season if the show’s creators change their minds after realizing how well-liked it is worldwide. There is currently no release date for Guardian: The Lonely and Great God Season 2. However, Gong Yoo tweeted in 2017: “Sorry to announce, (Goblin) will not have a Season 2. Some stories are better off being left unfinished.”

Guardian The Lonely and Great God Season 2 Story
Goblin is a fantasy love story about a modern-day goblin (Gong Yoo) who requires a human wife (Kim Go Eun) to terminate his cursed everlasting life. A respected military officer named Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is betrayed by the envious monarch he served in the Goryeo Dynasty. God transforms Kim Shin into a goblin, entrusted with saving certain people from a life of sorrow when Kim Shin is confronted with death rather than honor after waging a heroic battle. Kim Shin finds immortality exhausting and longs to meet the foretold human spouse who may set his spirit free.
Wang Yeo (Lee Dong Wook), the grim reaper who leads people into the afterlife, and Kim Shin end themselves living together by mistake. Yoo Deok Hwa (Yook Sung Jae), Kim Shin’s nephew and a rebellious chaebol heir, comes from a long line of goblin keepers. Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun), a senior in high school, has been able to speak with the dead since Kim Shin saved her mother from an accident 19 years ago. Wang Yeo meets paths with Sunny (Yoo In Na), the proprietor of a chicken restaurant and Eun Tak’s employer, who falls in love with him.
The story does have a happy ending but the four main characters live a different life in a different time frame where the Goblin meets Eun Tak and Sunny and the Grim Reaper also reunite.
