“Goblin” Review: A bittersweet and memorable journey for many years to come

goblin_poster_1

Overall Review:

A journey which was poignant, memorable and epic for not only the people we follow along with, but rather the specks of wisdom that the show sprinkles throughout. Through its amazing cinematography, sweet chemistry and intriguing messages, this drama will indeed keep your interest as it sets itself apart from most other dramas.

Like many already have (and eventually will), I am certainly not the first nor last blogger to share their thoughts on this drama. Goblin was perhaps the most anticipated drama of the remaining quarter of 2016 and as expected, it did indeed deliver. After laughing and crying my heart out for numerous hours (and recovering from the numbing feeling that I felt for hours after watching the drama), as well as falling into a little slump for a couple of weeks, I have finally gained the courage to close this drama, and finally say my farewell to our Goblin and his bride.

*deep breath* Let’s get on with it.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 29

 

arm-30day-challenge-d29

Welcome back to Day #29 of this 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge. One more day to go after this…seems almost surreal. How is that 30 days has already gone by? I really do hope that this challenge is enough to encourage me to continue blogging much more often this year than previous years. Here is today’s question:

Drama that everyone else absolutely loved and you absolutely did not

There’s most definitely an abundance of answers for this question. I just simply hope that I don’t offend anyone with my answers…they are just my honest opinion on some dramas.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 28

Hello and what is this? We only have 2 more days of this challenge?!! Indeed we do. Today’s question is in fact:

Your top three sisterhoods in dramas

Unlike the abundance of possible answers like yesterday, today’s answer is a lot more difficult. Surprisingly, asian dramas (specifically K-dramas) I’ve noticed don’t create as many sisterhoods as there are bromances. That is really disappointing in my opinion since the ones that do exist are just so sweet, and it would be nice if the female leads had a bigger support network to rely on. Here are the ones that I have been able to remember and note down:

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 27

Hello and a very happy warm welcome back! Oh my god~~ Three more days to go of this challenge! Can’t believe that it has been almost a month since I first started posting for this. It’s really starting to feel bittersweet. The question for the day is:

Your top three bromances in dramas

…I think this question is trying every way to kill me. ONLY 3?!! But, but, but…that’s almost impossible! How am I supposedly going to be able to reduce all of K-drama’s cute and awesome bromances into only just 3 :/ *sigh* Welp, sorry to all the other bromances that I’ve failed to list in this post…you’ll always be in my heart xD

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 26

Hello and welcome back to the challenge! We have 4 more days everyone, 4 more days!!! Today’s question is:

Drama character you’d actually want to be

Well…this question got me quite stuck. Really stuck. It made me really question the idea “Would I wanna be a heroine that tries to get together with the richest guy in town, and be stalked and shunned by ex-girlfriends and evil mother-in-laws?” No, definitely not. So, I went to go in search of a character who I admire and has their life together.

Returning back to Blogging: 30-Day Asian Drama Challenge – Day 25

Welcome back to everyone to the Asian Drama Challenge Day #25!! Can’t believe that there are only 5 more days left till this challenge will finish, and where I’d hopefully be back on track with the whole blogging spiel. Any who, today’s question is:

Drama character you’d actually want to date (not just lust over)

This question was indeed quite a unique one, because although all of us would probably swoon over a bunch of male leads, to have them as your actual boyfriend would probably suck. Luckily, I thought of two answers who I would indeed not mind dating 😉

Hey hey ya’ll and welcome back to the Asian Drama Challenge day #24. For today’s question, it is:

The unhealthiest drama OTP who were better off not being together at all

Well well well, where do I begin? There are just so many out there, where do I begin even? To ensure that I don’t end up rambling and ranting on, I will cut this list down to just 3 (originally I had about 5-6 on this list xD)
