When KFC Philippines realised they had a Kim Shin look-alike on their staff, they couldn't help but have a little fun.
In the hit Korean drama "Guardian: The Lonely and Great God" (more popularly known as "Goblin"), Kim Shin (played by actor Goon Yo) is a goblin who is searching for his human bride, the only one who can release him from the curse of immortality.
He may have found it in Jin Eun-tak (played by Kim Go-eun), a strong and eternally optimistic high school student with the ability to see ghosts.
KFC thought their Kim Shin needed to find his own bride too and so they launched a search online.
"Are you the look-alike bride of our look-alike Goblin?" they asked on Facebook, promising to give KFC gift certificates worth P5000 to Eun-tak's doppelganger.
The post was shared over 40,000 times and entries poured in.
"I'm the original Goblin's wife," one aspirant declared.
"I can see the sword," claimed another.
