I’m already so in love with Goblin it’s not funny, and definitely the recipe for heartbreak and tears down the road with how dark and beautifully moody the story construct is. The drama doesn’t have the hallmarks or feel of a Kim Eun Sook drama at all, even the quippy dialogue is kept to a minimum as the words are few but the meaning deep or sorrowful. It’s like Kim Eun Sook, who I have nearly always liked, evolved herself finally and broke through to a new level. What is a hallmark of her dramas in the addicting and sprawling soundtrack remains judging by the first track to drop “Stay with Me” by Punch featuring Chanyeol of EXO. Punch has been a drama fave of mine after she did “First Love” with Tiger JK for Pinocchio, but it’s the EXO boys who continue to impress after Chen’s “Best Luck” in It’s Okay, It’s Love.
