    I was super excited by Ldw and GW but the synopsis sounds really retarded. Sooooooo…… I will keep my mind open. But a high school student with a goblin…

    ryry Says:

    Wow I think this drama will be interesting because the screenwriter is Kim Eun Sook (DOTS’s screenwriter and other successful dramas). Can’t wait to watch this drama!!

    Gong Yoo should not be a Goblin but he must be a Zombie, LOL

    there’s no middle earth, so the goblin is tall. let’s see how much fantasy is in here.

    Snow Says:

    No a fan of Kim Go Run, something about seeing an actress naked in a sex scene trying to now play the role of an innocent teenage is a turn off for me…sorry LDW, maybe next time. Not only that, I thought she was unattractive in CITT.

    Sincere Roni Says:

    OMG. The main cast is too good to be true. Also rushing to judgment about the plot synopsis is plain silly. Plenty dramas have sounded silly from the synopsis but I have enjoyed (Let’s Fight Ghost for instance). I look forward to this one.

    kim go eun in my opinion is one of the better actresses,she is someone who can really act,she may not be as popular as the other better known actresses or as “beautiful” (at least kge is naturally beautiful not medically enhanced) as others but one thing is for sure..she can act!

    lamiss Says:

    As the first episode it was so entertaining and I already ship the leads, their chemistery is undeniable. looking forward too see more. fighting our Handsome Goblin

    Hannah Says:

    At first I didn’t feel like watching this drama because from the plot, it seems ridiculous. But after giving it a try ep 1, I think it’s an interesting drama. Something different from typical kdrama and I love ep 1! The casts are doing amazing job!

  36. 36
    Peejay Says:

    Great 1st episode of Goblin! Action-packed, funny and teary moments! Hope the drama gets sustained or higher ratings with Korean audiences. But 6.3-6.7% is great for Pay TV drama and would have been included in Top 20 dramas. Of course I am a little bit biased since I am a Gong Yoo fan. But he is really great in action, drama, comedy and romance. Too bad he needed to do his military service at the peak of his career after Coffee Prince. As for Kim Go Eun, she might be a neophyte in drama series, but her movies are award-winning and I really like her in Cheese in a trap which also got good ratings. Fighting Goblin! Good work for the cast and crew!

    BIKI Says:

    Gong Yoo doesn’t like,he pushes away from watching the drama.Only Lee Dong Wook so far the only plus of this drama.Drama itself is inferior to the plot of Lunar love.The budget here was good and this visual picture is better than the Moon
