KDQ's Drama Review ~ Goblin



Gong Yoo
as Kim Shin

Kim Shin is what Koreans call a Goblin but you could also say he is a Guardian Angel. His powers can move things, save lives and he can transport to any country by walking through a door. He has roamed the earth for over 900 years looking for his bride to take the sword from his chest so that he can finally have peace. 

Kim Go-eun
as Ji Eun-tak

Ji Eun-tak is the Goblin's Bride. Her mother nearly lost her when she was pregnant and hit by a car. The Goblin saved the baby not knowing that she would turn out to be his bride. Ever since she was little she was able to see ghosts who would constantly tell her who she was. In the drama she is constantly sought out by the Grim Reaper. 

Lee Dong Wook
as Grim Reaper

The sexiest Grim Reaper I have ever seen. I don't even know what else to say other than for a man who takes souls like it's nothing, he has a big heart. You will cry when he me.

Yoo In-na
as Kim Sun aka Sunny

Sunny is the reincarnate sister of Kim Shin. In this lifetime she is a chicken shop owner who falls in love with the Grim Reaper.

Yook Sung-jae
as Yoo Deok-hwa

Yoo Deok-hwa is the only grandson and heir of the Yoo family. He was always told about his uncle the Goblin from a young age. Deok-hwa is a little careless and sometimes a rebel but he has a heart of gold. 

The first 4 cast members are linked in a certain way from a past life. It is interesting to watch it all unfold and know who is who.


First off let me tell you that I was not ready for this roller coaster of emotions right out the gate in this drama. So before you sit down and watch it...grab the tissues. And maybe some ice cream. Oh and make sure that you have time to just sit and do nothing but cry because you will not be able to watch just one episode!

So, like I said the first episode is pretty dramatic. You are up you are down and then you CRASH! It is heartbreaking yet gives you the feel goods at the same time. 

There were times in the drama that I was confused about who was who and who did what and that could have been just me because I was trying to watch this and do a million things at the same time. I quickly figured it all out and was able to really enjoy the rest of the drama. 

While watching this you are going to be on the edge of your seats at times because you know, like all dramas, something bad is going to happen. Whether it gets bad and then gets better we never know until the end. From ep 2 until end of 12 beginning of 13 the drama is just really setting you up for BIG BANG which is at the end of 13. Let me tell you that I did not cry any after the first episode but the end of 13...OMG I became instant mush baby. Just fair warning. From then on the emotional roller coaster went into effect again and I was all over the place. 

Of course you are all wanting to know what happens in the end right? Was it good? Was it bad? Was it disappointing? Well, all I can say is...ALL 3!! It was good, I was very happy with what happened in the end but at the same time I was very disappointed that there was not more. They did leave it to where there COULD be a Goblin 2 but I doubt that would ever happen. Would be great though!

Below are some of my favorite pictures (moments) from the drama. In no particular order.

There you have it lovelies!! If you have not seen this yet I HIGHLY recommend you do so. If you have watched it, what did you guys think of the drama? 

Please make sure you +1 this post and share it with your friends.
