8 Things I Appreciate About Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

This post was ten episodes shy of being titled “Goblin, My Unpopular Opinion”, as when I watched the first few episodes of Goblin: The Lonely and Great God, it was pretty slow to me and I did not understand the hype. I found the female lead annoying, and somehow did not see the amazing charm of the male actors.

Thankfully I continued as I thought, this had to be one hell of a drama for it to do better than the 2016 hit drama that swept drama land not too long ago,  Descendants of the Sun. And after I watched the Goblin special and realized that this masterpiece was in fact created by Kim Eun Sook, the same woman that created Descendants of the Sun, I thought daebak! That makes so much sense as both dramas were legendary in their own respect.

There were many things that crossed my mind as I watched Goblin and took in the amazing effort and detail put in by the cast and crew, and I’m going to tell you exactly why this drama took me by surprise.

The Reply Series: A Detailed Opinion

In the summer of 2012 I was but a tiny inkling on this planet, preparing for my sophomore year of high school, completely unaware of the magic of the K-Drama world. As I ate cold cut sandwiches for lunch and tried to decide if my frenemy at the time would yield to my next move, I wasn’t even aware that something bigger, something beyond me was taking place.

The Reply Series took the world by storm in the summer of 2012, starting with Reply 1997, soon being followed by Reply 1994, and Reply 1988 after its success. I watched each season in order of it’s release, naturally beginning with 1997 during my Freshman year of college in 2015. They certainly lived up to the hype, so much so making me wonder how I even lived in a Reply-free-world before my discovery upon this gold mine of dramas.
