of their mythology! Both dramas have incorporated the heavenly (and hell) beings to their story. Though they don't exact;y have the same conflict going on, both dramas have a matter-of-life-and-death conflict to deal with.

And though I like Goblin, Arang is still the number one on my list when it comes to a resolution for a love that transcends death.

Both have a similar plot element of Reapers who have no memory of their life before death and the consequences ensuing when said memories return.

In Goblin the flashbacks in history are in the time period of Goryeo, in which Wang Yeo (Yo) is King. Wang Yo is a character present in Scarlet Heart Ryeo. I think it's very interesting to see Yo being portrayed by different people. Both drama's have very emotional plot-lines to them, definitely have tissues prepared if you watch them.

Both shows have themes concerning death. There is also humor, romance, and most importantly, bromance.

-Both include the love story between a Grim Reaper and a mortal human
-Both have a group of grim reapers doing their duty, in so, deal with life & death questions
-In both the Grim Reaper character is cute, unique and very lovable

In Universe's star the Grim Reaper/Human lovestory is the main focus/main OTP, in Goblin it's only a secondary leads/second OTP story.

Similar threads of past lives, honour, after-life, ancestry and culture

Both dramas are about love that is not controlled by humans but instead by something greater than them. Both my all time faves! great osts, great acting! No love triangles (so done with them really).

Both tackle deep Life/Death questions.

This is the korean remake version of the original Loss:Time:Life japanese drama.

Both deal with deep Life/Death questions.

Goblin is a drama with same leads/chars throughout all episodes like it usually is, while Loss:Time:Life features different characters per each episode / is an anthology series

Goblin also has romance, LTL only deals with the life/death part

Both has a supernatural element to it. In Goblin, Eun Tak can call him by blowing a candle. In Master's Sun, Tae Gong Shil can avoid ghosts by touching him.

both are supernatural historical dramas..with a blending of past and present


both have 2 love stories
1-warrior and person from the present.
the love of warrior is pure platonic one with lot of understanding..and he is always try to protect his girl
and the couple always try to overcome their difficulties together
2--king and queen
the love b/w king and queen had lot of misunderstandings though they love each other a lot...

both have bromance b/w king and warrior and the warrior was very loyal to the king

both have good friendship b/w two leading female characters and help each other to develop their love and all..

both have people who are jealous of the warrior and plotting against him and try to brainwash the king

But the theme of the story is completely different

cuz in faith its just one girl who time travels to the Goryeo era..
and in goblin many people from that era come to the 21st-century in different ways..

I feel like these two dramas are very similar in a way. It's basically about the past but the drama is in the present form. Both are interesting and the bromance is cute! xD

Similarly hollow feeling to the stories. Both are captivating and easy to watch with very nice cinematography. Romance isn't super prominent, and both carry a supernatural theme, with Goblin leaning more on the high-fantasy historical side and YWCFTS more modern and not as "epic".
While Goblin's conflict stays more on the supernatural side of things, YWCFTS' conflict is a murderer. Has a more "earthly" feel than Goblin, but similar overall.

Both have an immortal fall in love with a human. There is conflict in knowing that they will never age so this sets the pacing when do come across that one person who intrigues and makes them 'fall' in love. LFATM is a short drama so easy to marathon, the characters are fun and likeable. Immortal leads in both, face inner conflicts in trying to make the right choices about love, and their own personal purpose of the life they live.

They are both supernatural. In Gumiho, the main girl is not a human and in order to become one she needs a human. She is +500 YO.
In Goblin, Kim Shin is not human too. He is +900 YO. He wants to end his immortality. In order to that he needs a human bride.
Goblin has more interesting storyline and has a strong sweet bromance too.
