Goblin’s Gong Yoo has gotten a lot of new fans lately mostly due to his winning performance in tvN’s new drama series. Although it premiered just a couple of weeks ago, it has already broken records on Nielsen Korea’s TV popularity index beating another popular drama The Legend of the Blue Sea, starring Lee Min Ho.
But it looks like Gong Yoo isn’t just the king of Korean drama right now. He’s also the king of being awesome to fans.
As Koreaboo notes, Gong Yoo has become known for being very relatable to fans and really making them feel special. At a recent screening of his new movie, The Age of Shadows, Gong Yoo singled out one fan who was filming him by winking at her. According to Koreaboo, the “subtle” wink was noticed by the rest of the audience who all started winking at him.
It’s a cute moment that definitely shows that Yoo isn’t afraid to show his personality in front of his fans.

As you can imagine, this isn’t the first time that Gong Yoo has been cute with his fans. As Koreaboo reports, the actor participated in a fun game with fans at a red carpet event for The Age Of Shadows. During the event, Gong Yoo was asked to perform a romantic hugging scene. Yoo hugged the blushing fan from behind.
As Soompi reports, Gong Yoo recently thanked his fans on the night of the show’s premiere for all of the support they have given to his first Korean drama series in five years, Goblin.
“I was more nervous about this than a movie premiere,” he wrote to fans in an online chat room. “Ah… sigh. Thank you so much for cheering me on.”
He went on to express his gratitude to the team behind the show and asked that fans continue supporting the show each week.
“I also have to thank from the bottom of my heart the director, the writer, and the production staff for making such a wonderful production,” he continued. “Tomorrow night we will join hands and make even more amazing scenes for everyone. The road ahead is long and sleepless, but please support us so that the ‘Goblin’ team can continue to forge ahead without any accidents and with smiling faces.”
