My late Lola Ebeng was a fan of the late Julie Vega. At exactly 6pm, no one can touch the television because Lola has to have her dose of AnaLiza drama series. My siblings and I were able to watch with Lola but as soon as my father arrived from work, we pretended not to be interested in watching because Papa never like telenovelas. Papa would often say, it's too long and dragging and that there's already too many problems in the world to waste our time watching something that can be finished in an hour instead of years.

I probably learned it from my father so I was never a fan of any drama series until I talked to Ate Jo (my sister-in-law). She's so into Gong Yoo that she'd tell me not to disturb her from when Goblin starts playing at ABS-CBN.

I fely betrayed (lol), I got curious so I asked my daughter what this Goblin is all about. Julia said, "Mom I've been telling you months ago about Goblin. You should watch it so you know".

Long story short, I finished all 16 episodes in 1 week. I had headache because I refused to sleep just to see the ending of this series.

Did, I like it? Well, yeah! It's a love story, I love love stories! I like the cinematography, the view, the pa cute of Gong Yoo, and the song Beautiful Life.

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Love story, Comedy

Cast: Gong Yoo - Kim Shin Kim Go-Eun - Ji Eun-Tak Lee Dong-Wook- Grim Reaper Yoo In-Na - SunnyYook Sung-Jae - Yoo Duk-Hwa


In ancient times, Kim Shin (Gong Yoo) is an unbeatable general in wars, but the young King (Kim Min-Jae) is jealous of Kim Shin and kills him. Kim Shin becomes Dokkaebi (Goblin), possessing an immortal life. At first he thinks that he is blessed, but he realizes that he is cursed.

Closer to the present day, Kim Shin has waited 900 years for a human bride to end his immortal life. One night, he saves a dying pregnant woman (Park Hee-Von) who is destined to die. Meanwhile, the Grim Reaper (Lee Dong-Wook) is unable to find the dead pregnant woman. The woman gives birth to a baby girl named Ji Eun-Tak (later played by Kim Go-Eun). 9 years later, Ji Eun-Tak lives with her mother and is able to see ghosts. One night, her mother suddenly dies. On that night, she meets the Grim Reaper.

In the present day, Ji Eun-Tak is a high school student. She still sees ghosts and hears their whisper of “Dokkaebi’s bride.” She now lives with her aunt’s family, but she is mistreated by them. On her birthday, Ji Eun-Tak sits by the sea with a lighted birthday cake. At that time, Kim Shin suddenly appears in front of her. Kim Shin does not know why, but he can hear her voice and appears in front of her against his will. Coincidentally, Kim Shin lives with the Grim Reaper at the same house.

Now, Kim Shin appears in front of her against his will, whenever she turns off the lights. One day, Ji Eun-Tak tells him that he is Dokkaebi and she is his bride.
