    I’m not very much kdrama fan. But this is it. This drama hits my mind. I mean every single detail is perfectly done. The actor gong yoo is brilliant. I love train to busan also. His acting is soo pure and natural. He s just amazing. And also the other cast members. If this drama supposed to aired in SBS or KBS it’ll hit more than 40%. I’m so sureeeee. Good job to both writer and director. Good luck with the rest of episodes. 👌👍

    The Writer gets 5-stars for Ingenuity. The PD and Editor each get 5-stars for creating and assembling episodes #1 and #2 as a high quality movie production. I was riveted to the screen for the first 37 minutes of ep #1. The battle scene and the ship on the high seas scene were outstanding and astounding. I was riveted to the screen for the first 37 minutes of ep #1.

    Zaraza Says:

    Me so funny how in 1 episode, the battle here was copied from the “battle of the bastards” 6 the episode of the famous game of thrones.All actions of the Goblin was like Jon snow. Shame!

  25. 75
    Kristin Says:

    Dose no one really not no what the opening theme song to this show is called? It’s playing in the beginning of the episode and it’s in English! Dose no one no the song playing!!!!!😩

    You Know Nothing Says:

    I do watch GOT and a big fan of GOT, but I dont feel betrayed by this drama tho the scene was quite similar, but it’s not copied.

    First of all, I’d like to say most of war scenes are quite the same in most movies. It just so happened that the recent epic war scene tht most people know is the battle of bastards. The difference is that they dont have the giants and wildlings. And There’s no war strategy scene. And Goblin was not stuck under dead bodies like Jon Snow. About the sword swaying and sword scene, it’s crucial for the director to emphasize on the sword as it’s a part of the reason why Kim Shin became Goblin.

    Tracey Says:

    You Know Nothing. Hahaha the name seems fitting 😂😂😂

    Goblin is the best drama of 2016-2017!

    Hannah Says:

    This is my crazy hunch, but I think Grim Reaper is the dead King. It’s his punishment for his past life being immortality. He cried looking at the green ring that used to be the young Queen’s ring.

    Anyway, I love this drama so much! Makes me looking forward for weekend more than ever now!

  38. 88
    Hannah Says:

    Oppss it’s stated here Lee Dong Wook as Wang Yeo. Ugh, koreandrama.org, why would you spoil it. Should’ve leave it as Grim Reaper and makes us wonder who he really is. Hmm

    Pingny Says:

    Really love this movie. The actor, the song.. And anything in here is perfect… When see this just really falling in love with Gong yo.. An the actress too i love it.. When see this just want have next friday again pass more day just waiting this drama ^^

  50. 100
    TWoo Says:

    @Aleeya Wouldn’t Sunny be the young queen the King killed? It would explain why the Grim Reaper cried. Though he has no memory he’d have murdered to qualify for the Grim Reaper post and I guess the soul remembers. My speculations anyway.
