With “Goblin” Episode 10, every mystery about Sunny and Grim Reaper’s lives are now answered.
Let me enumerate the scenes that I really love in this episode. But before that, let me commend on how this episode balances off the screen time spent with Ji Eun Tak and Kim Shin’s romance. This episode focused more on Grim Reaper and Sunny’s past lives and budding romance.
The episode started with a scene where Sunny touched Grim Reaper’s hand and then Sunny’s past life was revealed to the grim reaper.
Last time, I talked about how great their cinematography is and just like the previous episode, there are lots of good points for cinematography/videography.
In order to make the audience understand what’s going on, the writer set the facts straight by having the Grim Reaper enumerate his facts/ theories about Kim Shin and Sunny’s past life and relationship with the goblin.
I like how the drama just smoothly transfer one dramatic or emotional scene to another. -A scene below is where Ji Eun Tak acting jealous but it’s kind of funny in a way. She joked about how all men, whether mortal or immortal, are all the same.
It’s also cute that if you could all remember, if Ji Eun Tak is angry towards the goblin, Kim Shin will also get mad and they will just end up having a ‘lover’s quarrel’, however in this episode, it was just proven that their love is going now into another deeper level as after Ji Eun Tak blabbed about what she noticed about men (goblin, the grim reaper), Kim Shin went back to tap her.
Of course, how can she not be excited about that romantic gesture huh?
Also in this episode, Kim Shin finally shared his past life to the Grim Reaper and of --------course, Ji Eun Tak accidentally listened to him behind the kitchen’s door. How can this two immortal not notice this mortal cute girl eavesdropping?
And let me just appreciate how Gong Yoo exude so much charm whether with long or short hair. He totally nailed it!
Another shot worthy of praise.
It’s when Kim Shin’s sister is travelled by a palanquin off to her wedding.
Despite being on a serious mode plus aspect of being in historical era, the writer showed how Kim Shin and her sister were very closed in the story just by using one word: “ugly.”
She uses the representation of how close the siblings were by making use of “common words” used by siblings who tease each other. It mean they just totally care and love each other.
Another cinematography appreciation.
Catch me I’m falling scene by the young queen and king. All Hail!
And when I mentioned that there were no antagonist in the drama, I was totally wrong and right I guess, about it.
The antagonist was the old adviser named Park Joong Won, of the young king. But he’s not really that kind of antagonist as he lived in the past. But, how about his reincarnation?
Let me just say, is it just me or the place is just the same in the “Healer” where Ji Chang Wook and Park Min Young starred in? –Kinda familiar
I actually cried in this scene. Talking about best friend and family. Kim Go Eun got me crying around one minute.
The ocean scene is a great art! Cinematography at its finest!
And when I mentioned this episode is mostly focused on the budding romance of the grim reaper and Sunny. This episode also showed their breakup scene. And, the goblin actually knew it when she first saw Sunny way back in the episode 9. Every scene made sense. I need to be keener now.
Another great cinematography display. Plus, it’s a witty idea to split screen in a very natural and artistic way. Grim Reaper thinking about Sunny and her past life divided by the laundry show’s glass. Witty people!
It’s great to enjoy your alcohol when you’re confident that you have a goblin boyfriend says Eun Tak.
This episode featured the goblin and Ji Eun Tak’s second kiss. With the slow motion plus perfect music bed. How romantic and cute!
They looked so cool ever since episode 1, Ji Eun Tak.
Presented in a serious manner but it’s totally hilarious. Modelling scene from these two gorgeous guys who brought green onions from the market.
Happy new year from this two!
These two oppas are just too cute. Bromance is real!
Appreciation for Gong Yoo eating a sweet potato. (Me: Saliva’s coming out my mouth)
How can they find scene like this? Like it’s totally artistic and witty! A doctor just died and before he forgets his memories, grim reaper asked him some advice about his problems.
Also, the drama states what is real in this world. We can reflect on it too. (Doctor’s memories will be lost too.)
Goblin’s gonna lose his another loyal servant again.
The last scene talked about Grim Reaper sharing about Sunny’s past life. And the two finally confirmed it!
Meanwhile, a spoiler for the next episode...
“Goblin” is totally a daebak story with superb acting from stellar casts plus perfect music. How else can we appreciate this drama? tvN’s drama is definitely worth all the hype!
