Plot

Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an immortal goblin and protector of souls. He lives with an amnesiac grim reaper (Lee Dong-wook) who is in charge of taking deceased souls. Together, they see the dead off into the afterlife. One day Kim Shin meets a girl, Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun), who has a special ability to see ghosts, and is destined to be his bride and return him to ashes.

My Review (Attention : SPOILER ALERT!)

At first, I thought this drama is about dwarves just like in European folklores. But when I saw the plot, it says that goblin (dokkaebi) is immortal and protector of souls, and I think cultural differences is the reason why goblin from western country differs from Korea. As I continue reading the plot, there's a grim reaper which is compeletely opposite to goblin. A grim reaper is a life taker while a goblin is a life protector.

Alright, enough for my first impressions. I'll now discuss my brief review on Goblin. I really like the chemistry between Kim Shin (Gong Yoo), the Goblin and Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun), the Goblin's bride even though there's an age gap between them, they still managed to have a connection with one another. Especially when Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) blows a candle which makes Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) teleports next to her. Kim Shin always prepare to look like professional by reading books, holding paintings and etc., so that when Eun-tak blows the candle she will be impressed. I always laugh so loud on these scenes. While the other lead Sunny (Yoo In-Na) and Grim Reaper's (Lee Dong-Wook) relationship was very heart wrenching. We all know that a human and a spirit can't be together. But you must watch Goblin to know the details why its more heart wrenching other than the reason that a human and a spirit can't be together. One formula of Korean drama I noticed in Goblin is the bromance. It's like a friendly fight whenever Gong Yoo and Lee Dong-Wook quarrel and I can't stop laughing. Korean dramas are really improving when it comes in mixing comedy in a drama.

When it comes to Goblin's videography, I can't say anything but WOW, it will move you especially your feelings. Thanks to Studio Dragon and Hwa and Dam Pictures for giving their full blast in making the video quality of Goblin very mesmerizing.

Overall, it's very good and I highly recommended it for your list of K-dramas to watch.

My Rating
9/10
