Guardian: The Lonely and Great God was an extremely popular television series about a semi-immortal goblin who falls in love with a human, and the story of “curing” his immortality.
The drama made significant achievements, breaking viewership records at the time and winning numerous awards. It recorded a whopping 18.68% nationwide audience rating on its last episode. It was the second highest rating for Korean cable television after Reply 1988, at the time of airing.
Although Gong Yoo stated that there were no plans for a Season 2 of Guardian: The Lonely and Great God at the moment, considering its extraordinary success, it wouldn’t be surprising if a Season 2 were to be released in the future. And the best part would be that Gong Yoo would want to star in it again!
Currently, Gong Yoo is preparing for several comebacks to the entertainment industry, including movies Seo Bok and Wonderland, and Netflix‘s upcoming drama Sea of Silence.
