There are so many details I love about Goblin, this is a one drama that I will thoroughly enjoy watching again to soak up the subtleties so long as the second half remains as good as the first. Kim Eun Sook has written plenty of 20 episode dramas but Goblin will be a 16 episode drama like her last work Descendants of the Sun, keeping it fast paced without any draggy. I think the drama is moving swiftly because I see it as a character drama about Goblin Kim Shin, his inner thoughts and centuries of life lived that is slowly and irrevocably changing with the arrival of bride Eun Tak. The mysteries being peeled away such as the past life identities of the Grim Reaper and Sunny, and awesome fantasy halmoni Lee El’s character, none of that requires lot of events so the drama may seem like not much action is happening. The production released new BTS stills showing how chummy the leads are, this is clearly is happy set and Yook Sung Jae‘s beaming grin makes me think that he’s really playing Yoo Duk Hwa as himself, lol.
