MANILA - Hooked on the Goblin fever?

Fans may not have to travel all the way to Seoul in search of their 'oppa' as the Goblin's doppelganger was recently spotted in Manila - and no, it's not Kuya Kim Atienza.

A crew member at a fast food chain in Taguig City has caught the attention of netizens as he closely resembled Korean actor Gong Yoo, who played the title role on the hit Korean drama "Goblin."

"Omg!!! Hello kuya, hindi ko nakita yung name niya nakatago kasi. Pero swear kamukhang kamukha ni Gong Yoo!!" Eriel Pangan Mendoza posted on her Facebook account Tuesday, along with a candid picture of Gong Yoo's look-a-like.

The picture has been shared at least 4,000 times and was liked by at least 6,500 people 15 hours after it was first posted online.

Some netizens have been tagging their friends who are fans of Gong Yoo, while others have been daring their pals to look for the guy in the photo and see if they could see the "sword" stuck on his chest - a reference to the drama's plot.

"Goblin," which was one of South Korea's most successful television series in 2016, airs weeknights on ABS-CBN after "A Love To Last."
