“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 4

 

arm-30day-challenge-d4

Hello my lovely readers! Welcome back to the blog! Here comes day 4 of the challenge:

Corny drama soundtrack that you secretly love to listen to.

Now, I had to check back to POPDramatic’s blog and double-check what she meant by ‘corny’. But, the idea is that you wouldn’t willingly admit to others that you rock out to these tunes. There are a couple that fit into this.

“Empress Ki” Review: An adventure which will follow me forever…

My favourite poster out of the bunch *0*

My favourite poster~~~

Overall review:

A drama that ventures through a solid plot and a diverse, enjoyable range of characters. Though at times the plot is slightly unclear, the incredible cast pulls it through and definitely saves the day.

Hey guys, and welcome back to another Kdrama review! This perhaps will be one of my most memorable Kdramas in my life as it is a drama that I have committed so much time, effort, emotion and love into.

Empress Ki had finished ages ago and yes, I feel absolutely guilty that I’m posting this review now but, it’s never too late, right? Hopefully, you guys won’t kill me for posting this so so late…However, despite how late I am, I just had to post up this review! Unlike others who tend to avoid the whole idea that they had finished it, I tend to deal with it head-on – write a review, and properly say farewell to it! I have previously written a post that discusses some broad aspects of the drama, and how my initial impression of the drama went down. Since I want to avoid repetition here, just check out the post for yourself 😉

As per usual, this is a SPOILER-FREE post (as much as it possibly can) and let’s get started!

“Emergency Couple” Kdrama Review – *Sigh* It was fun while it lasted~ TT__TT

Alrighty, it’s that time again for another Kdrama REVIEW!!! The drama just finished 2 days ago and honestly, it was a joy to watch. It was truly satisfying to see Jin Hyuk oppa finally being a main lead of a drama (it has been 4 years too long!) and to finally see Ji Hyo unni is a realm where, I feel anyway, she is quite comfortable with.

And yes, this review is SPOILER FREE!!! So, let’s get started!

I got nominated for a Liebster Award?! WHAAAAAAAAAAT?!

Liebster Award Logo

Hey everyone!! I am so so sorry that this particular post has gotten to you guys so very late. My life at the moment is getting pretty hectic; suddenly being forced to move out within one-two months is a big ordeal in my life, as finding a place to live is impossible apparently in the world I live in. But, no matter what happens, blogging will continue! (Even though I was taken away from it for days on end ><)

Andddddd HAPPY CHINESE/LUNAR NEW YEAR EVERYONE! Hope all you people who celebrate it (me included) had/have a nice time spending with the family and celebrating the New Year with everyone! 恭喜发财!!!

Anyway, thank you to the the lovely Sarah from DramAdrenaline,  Coffeenlucia, Chocokokoro and Kelly from Kellydramafantasy for nominating me for the award!!! You have no idea how much this means to me >//<

So, I honestly cannot believe that this is actually happening; seriously, when I first found out, I thought that it was a joke. I got nominated for a Liebster Award, which in blogging-land is a REALLY BIG DEAL! It is also quite legit, so there are rules and everything! Wait, give me a sec while I run away and calm down for a bit, yeah? *Runs around in a circle for 15 minutes non-stop* Okay…I think I’m…going to be sick!

How the Liebster Awards works:

1. Each nominee link back the person who nominated them.

2. Answer 10 questions which are given to you by the nominator.

3. Nominate 10 other bloggers for this award who have less than 200 followers.

4. Create 10 questions for your nominees to answer.

5. Let the nominees know that they have been nominated by going to their blog and notifying them.

Alright, firstly I will answer Sarah’s questions, then move onto pantomiming‘s, Chocokokoro’s and finally Kelly‘s okay?
