Oh my gosh does Goblin look ahhhhhmazing in the long 6-minute preview. I was making nnnngggg incoherent noises at every mesmerizing frame and couldn’t look away for a second. Whatever Kim Eun Sook has up her sleeve I’m certain it’s worth a first look on visuals alone rather than outright dismissiveness over some of her flaws in narrative and characterization. The cast of Goblin attended the press conference looking super coordinated, or at least male leads Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook definitely called each other beforehand to show up in all white and all black, respectively. Their giant grins and adorable bromance gestures are just love, so even if the romance elements in this doesn’t seem problematic, what with Kim Go Eun being a modern day high schooler and Yoo In Na being paired up with a grim reaper, at least we’re assured the odd couple cohabitation bromance should work just fine and may even be the best part of the story.
