    What an amazing series and regarding the ending ... [spoiler]Would I have preferred a happy ending with rainbows and a big bow? Probably, because I am sucker for happy endings. But I am not dissatisfied with the ending we got, because I felt it was earned and what the characters needed.[/spoiler] [spoiler]Sunny and Grim Reaper needed a clean slate, to fall in love and live happily together. All her life she was always waiting and her leaving because she couldn’t forgive him would have been pointless. Love is sometimes simply not enough. And he needed to forgive himself and just love her. Not remembering was a blessing.[/spoiler] [spoiler]Eun Tak time on earth was limited, so choosing to sacrifice herself in a heartbeat and overcome her sorrow in another life, to just be him with all her memovies intact, felt right to me. Kim Shin loosing her was heartbreaking. But this time he wasn’t waiting for his bride to end his life, he was waiting for her to live his life. I believe, that in the end he would be able to leave this life behind together with her. Be it at the end of her second life or fourth.[/spoiler]

    This is the best drama I've seen in awhile with a great OST to boot.

    I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to see literally anything in a drama. It had that sweet friendship between men, beautiful romance, lots of scenes of just being good humans. And then it was also a supernatural show so there's the grim reaper powers and goblin powers. There's ghosts and reincarnation. It's been a week or two since I watched it and my mind's still buzzing. it's one of the first dramas I would actually watch again just for the nice warm buzz it gave. So rare for shows to actually touch you like this did.

    I was hesitant to watch this show due to following reasons : - 1. Age gap between the character (not the leads) 2. Go-eun as Tae-eul in TKEL 3. Being a melodromatic fantasy 4. Not available in NETFLIX +/- Story &CAST - The actors do a superb job. I could feel their emotions from across the screen. then again, nothing less to be expected from such a spectacular cast. -The drama has everything, ranging from bromance, romance to mystery and suspense. -The bromance is spectacular. One of the most epic bromance I've ever seen in a Kdrama. It made me laugh a lot, but it also had its heartwarming and heart-wrenching moments. Goblin and Grim Reaper's relationship is one of the best reasons to pick this up. -The two couples- Goblin & Eun Tak and Grim Reaper & Sunny. Both couples had their own story. The sweet and cute moments of the Goblin couple & the sizzling chemistry between Grim Reaper and Sunny was enough to keep the 'romance' meter of the drama pretty high. You won't be able to get enough of the cuteness of Goblin & Eun Tak. -The mystery of the characters. From 'the lady in red' to the king and queen, each episode just gave enough glimpse into their lives to keep us engrossed. It'll drive you crazy in a good way. - Gong Yoo was amazing and Go-eun was very good well suited for this show. I almost didn't watch this show because of her role in TKEM which was badly written. +/- Music: All of the music was perfectly interwoven with the filmography! I couldn't believe my eyes and ears when Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook came strutting down the dark road, it was just pure matrimony. I am a huge fan of the soundtrack and have been listening to it on repeat for at least 2-3 days straight. My favorite song from the album changes from day to day, so that tells you that all of it is simply amazing. BONUS: Beautiful and addictive OST +/- CONS: I personally didn't find anything even remotely bad about it, but that's not to say other people won't, so here's a few things you should keep in mind before venturing into it. -The age difference between Goblin [ (~939) he was 39 when he died and then immortal for 900 years] and Eun Tak (19). Although the age difference between cast is 10 years so i didn't feel weird in most scenes . [spoiler] Their first kiss was after they she turns 20 and they don't skin-ship in school uniform Compared to Doctors show where they have similar age difference[/spoiler] -Comparatively less screen time for Sunny and Grim Reaper couple. But I suppose that's to be expected specially since the title alone indicates that Kim Shin (Goblin) is the main lead, so it's no wonder they get the most screen time. -Worst product placement you'll ever see in a Kdrama. You might think I'm kidding but sometimes even the smallest thing can annoy you. I personally found those scenes amusing though. Overall its a good drama and although at times the plot is slow you will still enjoy the ending... Although i rate this highly it still doesn't have a rewatch value as their is around 40-50% of plot thats very slow paces and almost like a filler.

    This show was so good. The OST was flawless.

    Literally EVERYTHING I could ever want in a TV show. It's fantasy, historical and modern at the same time; it had me doubled over in laughter and crying my eyes out in the same episode. Both romances are absolutely fantastic, and there are even a few mysteries to solve. I really cannot describe how much I love it, except by saying that I have already watched it twice and I want to watch it again. Easily my number one K-drama of all time. I highly recommend it. :thumbsup:

    This was one of the most beautiful series I've ever seen. Not only was the acting, the production quality, and OST beyond fantastic, the plot was heartwarming, heartbreaking, and all around extremely well done.

    I enjoyed this drama greatly. It had a spectacular storyline and amazing actors. I loved everything about it. I just had some issues or some parts that I didn't really enjoy but overall it was very enjoyable and comical at times. I liked the friendship between Goblin and the Grim Reaper. I liked the way Goblin and Eun Tak would interact. Sungjae was also a nice mix into it all. I believe this drama is worth the watch because I would say I enjoyed 85% of it making it one of my highest rated dramas which are quite hard to find.
