    I am satisfied with the ending. It’s better that way rather than having the sword pulled out in ep 15 and Goblin faced his death and they both reincarnate in ep 16 and happy ending. That’s a lil bit cliche.

    I like the writer’s idea on pulling the sword at the end of ep 13, and how Goblin didn’t wanna find peace just because he wanted to be with Eun Tak, and Eun Tak still need to face her fate as missing soul. I also think that the relationship between Sunny and Grim Reaper in that life is impossible as Grim Reaper is Grim Reaper. They both really need to try again in the next life which is what happened.

    Kudos to the writer! I’m looking forward for her next project! And congrats Goblin for beating Reply 1988’s rating. Congrats on being the TvN highest rating drama!

    Yet still goblin is so pity since he is still stuck on eternity and the feeling of losing people he loves will always make him hurt. Still hoping that goblin and eun tak both incarnate and start fresh. So that goblin will not face the same situation and sadness. But still goblin is jjang! 👍🏻

    okay, end of fantasy! it’s well written and i enjoyed that. regarding the bickering about how the two lead men are treated by the writer, all i can say is both were ex-humans, not men, but creatures. when they were humans centuries ago, they were not the alpha males of today’s environment, so not comparable.

    eejftr Says:

    well, i congratulate the makers of this drama. from the time that he pulled the sword out of his chest while eun tak still holds it.. the next episodes have been hard to predict and they’ve made a big twist that made this drama the best and also the ending is epic..that eun tak did not forget anything.. maybe she also walks into that desert of snow begging the divinity to come back on earth without the purpose of being the goblin’s bride to pull the sword so that they could live and love each other.

    I only watched this drama because I like the main actor ! Don’t know about others but this drama was disappointing ! Not just the ending but the story and the whole acting !!

    I watched this drama knowing that its writer is also the one behind DOTS…and again, I was not disappointed. It has a very intriguing yet interesting plot, and along with the beautiful music and cinematography and the good acting of the cast, it was a full package. I won’t be surprised if it also wins big in this year’s drama awards, which the drama truly deserves. ^^

    This drama is ok. but the lead female is suck! Totally ruin this drama. She has no acting skill.. what? she’s playing in tv drama or a school drama? for GOD sake! It’s so irritating, she’s not even cute no matter how hard she try to be. She has no chemistry with the lead male. Who the hell is Kim Go Eun? There are so many young actresses with great acting skill and the they cast her? What a joke, so annoying! With her around, Goblin is rather boring no matter how beautiful the cinematography is. Go to hell Kim Go Eun!

    if lead female has no acting skill
