All right, today I’m going back to my Asian roots…well, as Asian as I can get. Over the last few months, I’ve been obsessed with K-Pop, but that’s not the only Korean form of entertainment I’ve been obsessed with. Their drama series are just as addictive as their music, and one, in particular, is a must-watch. This one is called:
Goblin: The Lonely And Shining God
This one is probably one of the greatest dramas I’ve ever seen. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to see what a K-drama is like. Of course, fair warning, it is a typical Asian drama, so if you’re tired of melodramas, and over-acting then you might not want to watch this one, but if you can still stand it, I promise you, you won’t regret watching it.
What's It About?
In a nutshell Goblin (for short) is a love story. Actually, it’s several love stories, intertwined into one, but made up into a whole. The main story, however, is between a teenage girl and a Korean Goblin, otherwise known as a Dokkaebi. What defines their love story, is the fact that the girl is destined to pull out the sword in the Goblin’s chest, so that he can be free to finally die.
