The first time i heard about this drama, i was so excited because i'm in love with Gong Yoo after i watched Train To Busan and i miss Lee Dong Wook so much! At the beginning, i could see that this drama had some potentials to become a famouse one. And then, BOOM. Although this one aired on tv cabel only in Korea, this drama got so much attentions from KDrama lovers. read more It has highest drama rating on the tvN's history so far.

It was all smooth at the beginning, i really enjoyed it. I thought i would fall for the main leads' relationship, but nope. I fell for the bromance of the Goblin, grim reaper, and deok hwa bromance instead. They're absolutely entertaining and amazing together! Idk maybe it's just me, i don't feel satisfied with the ending. The ending is too contrived and too hasting for me. I was like .... "Wait, what?" "What?" "Uhm okay". But overall, i still like this anyway. Well, not as much as i love Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo since the story is more relatable, rational, and perfectly ended.

The soundtracks are amazing! Altough not all of them are my favourites, but i can say that the soundtracks sound very different with another Korean Dramas. It's, cool, creepy, gloomy, sad, and sometimes a little bit warm. Altough i love most of them, i couldn't say that the lyrics of them are easily to be remembered. I'm so proud of Sungjae's acting! He shows his acting skill just get better and better! And also, i feel so proud of Lee Dong Wook! Thanks to God he's shining brighter with this drama. Since, in my opinion, he had so many dramas before, but i guess not all of them are enjoyable for some kdrama lovers. Altough, i fall for him since his perfomance in "Hotel King". He was so hot in there, bruh! His wing tattoo on his back was my fav part of him to look at! LMAO. And his chemistry with Lee Da Hee felt so real! Since, Hotel King is the second time he played as the main leads together with Lee Da Hee.

I enjoyed watching it though it is quite long. The story is interesting.
I particularly love Ma Tianyu and his character. He was able to portray it very well.
Awesome OST.
The costumes were excellent as well as the locations.
I am looking forward for the sequel.

Overall, this drama was fun to watch. The show explored interesting themes about life, death, and the possible realms that exist in between. There was some amazing cinematic footage, and most of the acting was on point, especially with Lee Dong Wook playing a Grim Reaper. He deserves a lot of credit for making his character the most complex and interesting one in the show.

Unfortunately, there were a lot of inconsistencies read more and unexplained phenomena in the story line, especially toward the end. I was disappointed with the last few episodes; they felt rushed and slapped together last minute. In fact, I think that's what really happened, considering the delays in production. The creators had opportunities to tie together the themes they touched upon and get creative with it, but they completely missed those chances. And talk about overdoing it with the product placement!

All that being said, all in all, I still loved it, if not mostly for the awesome and unbearably cute bromance between Gong Yoo and Lee Dong Wook. They had great chemistry together and their dynamic was way more interesting than the actual boy-girl romance, in my opinion. They are two of my favorite actors, so there you go, I'm totally biased! With this bias in mind, I give it a generous 8 out of 10.

I'm secretly kind of glad it was a letdown at the end, because otherwise I'd be feeling those post-drama blues!

It must be said that Goblin is very much a somewhat cliché rom-com disguising itself as something else, but ultimately, what appears to be an interesting premise is cast aside for a romantic plot that I'm going to be honest is a little creepy and at times feels very fatherly to me. This makes it very hard to love the romance especially when the female lead is a bubble of cutesy energy read more and also she borderline looks twelve. There were moments I wanted to run into the scene and tell Gong Yoo, you get the hell away from her and date someone your own age. Yes, that, 782 age gap was at times hard to swallow.

What makes Goblin good is it's featuring. It stars longing looks, teary-eyed longing looks, bromance, ignoring that he is 800 years old, trying to pretend you are not watching this because of the bromance and good looking leads and KES's obligatory three good episodes towards the end that makes you think this is so good. It also stars a very good performance by Lee Dong Wook. I'd like to say the rest of the cast were just as good, but I'd be lying. Gong Yoo is someone, I watch because he is in good movies (The Crucible/Silenced, etc) but not because he gives an actual good performance. He's like a Brad Pitt type in that regard. I was quite surprised by LDW as I find him heavily attractive and have for a long time but I've admitted he's a terrible actor. Suddenly he is Matthew McConaughaying me. The female lead is literally a copy paste of all rom-coms. Especially from this writer.

The intro of this drama is unique and creates what has the potential to be a very good plot, but ultimately this is a meandering slow stream of a journey that I heavily recommend you skip some episodes. Yes, skip from ep 5 to 13 and you'll miss very little. The juicy parts of the plot are thrown aside for a slew of teary-eyed longing looks and cliché romantic scenes that at ep 4, I started to wonder when they were actually going to focus on the juicy premise.

Character wise, the bromance sells this stale plot as personally, the romance between the male and female lead just looks awkward. I should be gushing at romantic scenes but they look as uncomfortable as I do and when Gong Yoo pats her head, he at times feels like her father. The drama has a lot of potential but the writer didn't seem to know what to do with it and I feel like a traitor who deserves to be hanged for saying this, but as a huge lover of bromance, dare I say it, I actually got bored of the bromance. I started tuning in to cast longing looks at Lee Dong Wook. My obsession made me run out into the street and jump in front of a car, but I heavily recommend you don't do that as the Grim Reaper never appeared and now I'm writing this in the afterlife.

The writer here also inserts her I suckered you into thinking this was good by having her obligatory three good episodes that make me think, Oh this has potential. It's always towards the end too. Melancholic episodes with good editing that make me wonder where was this for the previous ten episodes? I feel the drama is a seven at best as in, I would be very generous to give it a 7. It has its good melancholic and humorous scenes but it ultimately never quite gets its pacing right and never seems to know what to focus on making this really not as good as it could be.

PS. I also urge you to cast aside any logical questions you might have especially towards the end. They will not be answered.

This is a great show about the office and salary men. Thers no romance and the mood is very sombre and serious. Theres a lil comedy here and there but mostly shouting and yelling at interns. The story centers around jang geu rae. Hes only had ged and not degree but gets in thru connections. Everyone just bullies him and hes very humble and hardworking so u feel for him and his read more struggles. He makes u love him even more and want him to have success or even smile. His biggest enemy is han seok yool, who from the first day when they got paired up has been a pain in his butt till the end.. there's lots of sad moments but everything works out in the final episode. Great show

I can say with 100% confidence this is hands down the best drama I've ever seen and I've seen at least 50 to 60 so far.

The cast are beyond amazing, the plot keeps you on your toes and makes you cry, laugh, cringe and smile like crazy. The story is beautiful and mysterious and it is the most unique storyline.

I am beyond heartbroken that the show is over.

EVERYONE watch Goblin!

Ahh this drama made me sad after it ends...it made me sad because I don't want it to end.

I definitely rate this drama high because it's perfect in all aspects. The story is original, though this is not the first drama about sports but highlighting Weightlifting as a sport was refreshing to watch. The pacing of the story was superb, it was not rushed. We know in a way that it's read more going to be a romantic drama but we do not see the romance between the leads in the first 9 episodes. The characters was well developed.

Lee Sung Kyung as Kim Bok Joo was just perfect, she is such a versatile actress. Give her a role and she'll definitely pull it off. There couldn't be a fitting actress for the role but her. After watching her as Baek In Ha in Cheese In The Trap, I could tell that she is a very talented actress. Nam Joo Hyuk as Jung Joon Yung is perfect as well, it seems like he's not acting at all, it was so natural. And the chemistry between the two was superb that it was not awkward or painful to watch them together doing those silly and funny antics. The supporting cast, ahhh I couldn't say anything bad because they were all perfect. From Bok Joo's bestfriends Nan He and Sung Ok who gave colors to the story and the ever persistent of a best friend of Joon Yung Tae Kwon. Who can forget Bok Joo's father and uncle, Joon Yung's ex Si Ho. And Bok Joo's first love interest Jae Yi.

The characters surrounding the leads was perfectly put in place. From their families, to teammates. The balance was just impeccable. I just love how the story progressed. I admire this story so much because it anyone can relate to it, themes like friendship being tested were shown, the annoying ex, the quirky parents and uncles, the nice brother, respect, hard-work, perseverance, rivalries and peer pressure. Though comedic in most parts, it did not fail to tackle the emotions of all the characters, it was played well, especially their vulnerabilities and how they handle it.

So "Do you like Messi?"

It's kind of interesting, and confusing you won't get bored with it but it could be way better than this. I'm a little bit disappointing because I was expecting more but it's worth to watch.

I honestly loved this movie! The "anime-feel" of Kurosaki-kun no Iinari ni Nante Naranai was spot on. It was not only hilarious but left me with butterflies in my stomach. ^-^ Also, and this was a fact that surprised me with this movie, that it was kind of hot for a Japanese drama (which usually tends to leave us with shallow or few kisses), but this was a lot more, well physical, read more but of course in a sweet way. Haha.

So if you want something light, fuzzy, hilarious, adorable and mildly steamy, then this is the drama for you. ;)


Also! I recommend you to watch the drama series first, then the movie, since the movie takes place after the drama.

After thinking about this overnight, and some more thought it time to give my thoughts.

Story: AI'm Not one for historical dramas, but I feel this was a great start for me, in historical dramas. It not really all historical but it a very intriguing part of Goblin. The Romance was really great in this, I have one flaw but can't really go into it because of spoilers

Acting/Cast: I'm not going read more to be doing the acting/cast the way i usually do a person in the cast but I'm going to do the chemistry. Gong Yoo, and Lee Dong Wook, is the first two I want to discuss. They had the perfect bromance in this that made me really love it between the two were really what made the show for me. the other one is Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun had great chemistry, and they had great chemistry with their romance was really well done. Honorable mention to the second lead chemistry.

Music: The song that stuck out to m the most in this drama was Stay With Me. It fit the show so well, and It lets me have somewhat I call, that it made me love the show more. the other songs were OK, but they did not stick much (which is saying much because music is what I rate hard in dramas).

Rewatch/Overall: Overall this is a 10 for me, I love this show so much that it worth a watch. The re watch value is also a 10, I will rewatch this.

This drama is now my number 1 favourite out of all I have watched. I've got to say, it's going to be pretty hard to top this one. I finished watching the last wo episodes on Viki and I LOVED it. The characters, the music (my favourite is I Miss You and Round and Round) and the the plot was PHENOMENAL! I had a hard time not crying when the sad parts read more were on (not going to spoil) and had a hard time not smiling when they were happy. The ending was good, some people think it could've been better but I think it was sweet and everything was perfect!! My favourite was Kill Me Heal Me and Angry Mom but Goblin takes the lead!!

I will definitely rewatch this because I miss the characters so much, even after 15 minutes from seeing them lol. I recommend this to ANYONE who likes dramas as is is funny, romantic and have some action! It also teachers a lot of lessons and puts other people's lives into perspective. Thank you so much to the writers as this is my favourite and now I have high expectations XD

10/10

Postado no blog: https://rreblogando.blogspot.com.br/2017/01/doramas-age-of-youth.html

Um gostinho...

Crítica:


Antes de tudo, devo confessar que adoro doramas que falam sobre a vida, o dia a dia de cada personagem e não focam só no romance.
E esse é o diferencial desse, a história fala sobre cada uma das personagens e as batalhas diárias de cada uma, ela não foca só nos relacionamentos (lógico que eles não ficam de fora, mass….).
Em um só episódio read more é possível rir, chorar e se apaixonar, os personagens não são do tipo maria-vai-com-as-outras ou “sem cérebro” e vivem descobrindo coisas novas.

As meninas criam um laço de amizade tão forte (e fofo) que elas estão sempre atentas às necessidades umas das outras, tem até um episódio em que elas tentam proteger a caçulinha do grupo (essa é a melhor parte) porque a ouviram gritar e acharam que ela estava em perigo.
Sem dúvidas, esse é um dorama que eu assistiria milhares de vezes seguidas.
