I love the sense of the wonder from watching Goblin, the story has so many fantasy elements and a sweet slow cadence as it peels back the layers slowly. Usually K-dramas are about glorifying the fantasy, a chaebol plucking a cinderella with plucky personality or gorgeous professional solving problems between falling in love. but this super fantasy drama actually makes the extraordinary feel like a burden and the ordinary a salvation. Who wants to live forever and have super powers when it’s so lonely, whereas living and dying comes across as a job well done and nothing to regret. Now that Eun Tak the bride can’t (yet) pull out the Goblin’s sword, what’s left for the odd couple than more cohabitation trio hijinks with a side of Sunny awkward flirtation for the Grim Reaper. I feel like the bickering couple banter is now routine and actually alleviates their mutual loneliness.
