This is yet again a poorly adapted movie from a famous shoujo manga. I seriously demand a remake because this is originally such a lovely and interesting manga series!

The storyline is very basic and quite intriguing, so if you're interested after reading the plot summary, just head to read the original manga! I guarantee that it's a 100 times better than this adaptation. I guess the movie sucks because the screenwriters had to jumble up 5+ volumes of the manga's storyline into as little as 2h. In my opinion, the writers for this movie adaptation didn't select the right scenes to film, didn't show the development of the supporting characters. Everything felt very unrealistic and out of place, believe me. Not to mention the horrible acting. I thought that the cast was fresh and inexperienced. But to my surprise, the lead actors are actually very famous and this movie is not their biggest one. Especially the female lead - I haven't seen such bad acting in a very long time!

Overall, if I had to put my review in a few words, I'd say that this movie is enjoyable only if you put it on as a background noise while doing your homework. Definitely not worth watching. However, if you're interested in the plot, quickly head to read the manga! It is so much better on paper!

P.S. That ending scene with Bruno Mars' "Marry You" was the cringiest thing I've ever seen...

All of the ARMY out there, this is the best show of the group that you must watch if you haven't already!
Being a hardcore fan of BTS, this show has always been on my "to watch" list. I regret not seeing it sooner. This is the season 1 where the guys go to explore Northern Europe. As always with the boys, the show is very entertaining, doesn't lack humor (believe me, a goldmine for memes), and surprisingly enough, it's very inspirational. I want to travel to the same countries too. Watching back, you do reflect on some things and fall in love with the band members even more. <3

This must be added to my list of favorite Korean Dramas. I'm amazed at how these Asian dramas are starting to get better and more unique every year, and Goblin is definitely a piece of gold in this big and wide range of Korean Dramas.
I have to start off with the storyline. I've always been quite a fan of mythical creatures, especially stories about Japanese deities and gods in anime. When I first saw that this story revolves around similar folklore beasts and spirits, I was swiftly drawn into it. It was quite a ride seeing the mythical creatures being portrayed by the amazing and super talented actors. I mean, the Goblin and the Grim Reaper's bromance speaks for itself. At first glance, I thought that the main couple, the Goblin and his bride, was kind of strange and unrelatable, but they made such a cute connection during the series. I've been familiar with Kim Go Eun's acting in Cheese In The Trap so it was quite a surprise seeing her act as a bubbly and fun character, unlike the other drama. However, my biggest appreciation of romance goes to the ultimate Grim Reaper and Sunny. Their screen time is so strong and made me quite anxious each and every episode... Their chemistry is unbelievable, they definitely need a separate series! *totally would watch*
The OST was selected perfectly. Loved the little touch of incorporating classical and pop music. The breathtaking shots of the nature and Quebec made the visuals of this drama out of this world unforgettable!
Not only does this drama combine polar genres like comedy, romance, history and tragedy into one harmonized series, but also it combines existential and every day problems with the perception of time. Never has a Korean Drama changed my views on death and love like Goblin. This is worth appearing onto national television it was that good! I'm gonna miss it, but it's also in a need of a re-watch sometime soon!

This drama is totally a definition of a very cheesy drama, but not necessarily in a bad way. It has every element of what a real rom-com should be like, starting from the rich man poor girl and ending with the evil mother. It was short, sweet and very fast paced. So if you're looking for a quick and cute drama to ease your heart, then give this a go!

Watched this randomly while on a binge of romantic-Japanese-manga-adaptation-movies. Stumbled across this while hearing positive feedback on the manga. The only comment I can make is "meh" since it is what it is. The movie is everything you expect it to be: cheesy, cutesy, romantic, childish, infuriating, dramatic.
Nicely brought to the screen but I wasn't very fond of the plot so I wouldn't re-watch it again.

Before watching this movie, I've watched the anime and read the manga and fell in love with the mature love story that was full of drama, tension and character development. But I was a bit disappointed because the movie didn't portray a lot of it...
I guess it's because you can't have the whole story and every scene be jumbled into a 2 hour movie. But the overall love story was great, the characters had that nice vibe. Perfect recommendation for those who just want a romantic movie marathon late at night!

This drama is a very light romcom, for anyone who doesn't like deep and nerve wrecking shows. As one of the many people who decided to watch this drama because of the main couple, I was a bit disappointed with it in the end. I know I shouldn't mix Goblin and this series, as the couple of characters are completely different in both dramas, however, I expected the directors of Touch Your Heart to bring some of the character traits back, so they'd link both of the universes together. Just a train of thought.
In my opinion, this drama didn't have a lot to offer in story, the characters and the character development. It was mediocre at best. There are way better similar story dramas out there. If you do decide to watch it, do it for the main actors, as they're very charismatic.

Slightly disappointed to be honest after all of the love that my fellow Kdrama bingers have given this drama. I was introduced to this by my friends, and based on the many positive reviews, I decided to give it a go. I felt like the series was all over the place: with many storylines, I feel like the directors and screenwriters had to think out of the box for this drama. Don't get me wrong, the story was nothing like I've ever seen before. The problem is that I didn't feel a strong connection with the characters or even the OST. I'm a fan of some of the actors and their other well-known dramas and movies, but I felt like they didn't live up to their characters. For example, the ghost, the chef and the shy girl love triangle was a bit awkward, not gonna lie. Plus, they didn't seem to have any chemistry at all. Overall, this drama didn't keep me watching on the edge of my seat. I think I'm being generous for giving it a 7, but the main storyline was a lot different than what I've seen in Kdrama world. So if you enjoy supernatural themes, a bit of thriller and rom-com, you'll definitely love this.

This was such a rollercoaster of a drama, with many ups and downs, offering an awesome thrill all the way. This series was in my "must-watch" list after much praising and positive feedback on it everywhere. I loved it, even though it had its flaws here and there. Now let's focus on the positive aspects. First, I loved the strong female lead. Not only her as a character, but how beautiful she is as well. Second, the story was very unique and nothing like I've ever seen before. Third, I enjoyed how quickly the chemistry and romance blossomed between the main leads. As lastly, and something that I look for in every drama, the OST was magically beautiful. No wonder it scored so high with the fans around the world! Now, the only thing that ruined this drama for me was how draggy everything became after the schizophrenia diagnosis. It went downhill after that for me. The female lead became weak, the male lead followed in her footsteps. Even though the illness was quite unexpected and a plot-twist for me, in addition, the brother committing a crime was a big plot hole too. If I took anything from this drama, is to look at mental illness from a different perspective. But I don't get why the drama is so hyped up, there are definitely drama that are more fascinating and gripping than this one.

It took me quite a long time to finally finish this, I wish I would've done it sooner! It was a great drama to say the least, one of those series that redeemed itself towards the end. First off, the story was quite fascinating for me at least. I know, time traveling is nothing new, but somehow, I knew from reading the plot that I wanted to watch this. And the actors, definitely another reason why I was so eager to start watching. I did enjoy the first couple of episodes, but some of the characters seemed foolish, and the story was kind of dull. But the character development in this was something that defines a great drama. The love story between Dabong and Woo Seung was naturally intertwined into the main storyline, they did have great chemistry. Dabong's character development + the sweet story between grandpa and his granddaughter were some of the details that lifted this series from ashes. In addition, I found the OST to be very catchy, which is always a plus. Nonetheless, this drama was a bit boring in the beginning, but made its way back with a bang. It's easy-to-watch and definitely worth-while!

This review will make me look like a bit of a jerk perhaps, but this movie was too plain and not that special. Sure, the storyline was quite unique, didn't even know that there was a previous Japanese movie like this. However, I felt that the movie was lacking like a backstory of the "accident". Wasn't a fan of the supernatural element in this, probably because of the lack of special effects. Personally, I enjoyed the cinematography and the warmness that this movie delivered. I'm a fan of the leading actress, but I felt that she couldn't get into her character. In addition, I personally felt like there was a lack of chemistry between the main couple. The child actor was cute though! In my opinion, there are way better Korean family or supernatural movies out there, this one was mediocre I guess.

I remember watching the movie called The Beauty Inside earlier this year and it was magical! When I heard that a TV drama of the same title was about to air, I felt nostalgia and excitement filling my body. But the drama had disappointed me...

I'm a bit generous when I give this drama 7/10 as an overall, but I couldn't give it less since I admire the movie too much. Just like many other Korean shows, it started off amazing, and slowly but surely went on to be a waste of time. The plot was a spin on the gender: now, a woman was going to change her appearance once a month, which I thought was a bit more fair, since she turns back to herself and leads a perfectly normal lifestyle after changing back. Furthermore, I'm a big admirer of the actress Seo Hyun Jin and her work, so naturally, I had really high expectations for this drama. I knew that the actress would still shine when the show went downhill, her presence kind of saved the show in the end??? But the main flaws with this series was how unreal the relationship between the leads felt. Also, the male lead's illness was the biggest wtf I've seen in a long time (way to go, Korean scriptwriters, you're very creative). In addition, some side characters lacked screen time and you couldn't really delve into their own little stories. And the biggest issue of them all was the amount of episodes. They just purely ran out of ideas. Example A: the last episode was utterly unnecessary and had no effect on the viewers whatsoever. As a big plus, I'd say the soundtrack is very nice to listen to. That's all.

So, before watching this, give the maternal movie a watch. I'm sure you'll fall in love with the film, then you can compare it with this show. I still don't know if it was worth watching with all of the empty-meaning episodes...

It was super cute. I love how some of these web dramas are straight to the point, not even rushed in that short amount of time and how the characters are so cute and create the perfect chemistry. Like most of the people who watched this, I fell in love with the main couple and I'd love to see the main couple playing in a full length drama. To keep this review short and minimal, I'd say go and watch it as it's literally straightforward, cutesy, fun and gives you the 100% fluff factor. It's a light watch in between any longer dramas, the cinematography is crisp and refreshing as well.

I'm a bit surprised that I'm currently the one person who gave this movie a really positive review. As an anti-fan of horror movie, I'd say this one wasn't as much scary as how disturbingly good it was. Personally, this really reminds me of Battle Royale and I absolutely adored that movie. This film has a bit of everything: thrills, suspense, horror some romance here and there, and to my luck - no jump scares! I'm a sucker for romance, so the chemistry between the main couple had me jumping up and down from time to time. There are clearly some plot holes that make you question this movie's existence and the reasons behind it, but I hope people start watching this with a light heart and not taking it too seriously. Overall, a non-scary horror with a captivating storyline, perfect to watch in a group of friends on Halloween.

I've been waiting a long time to watch this. Like the majority of people on here, I was such a huge fan of the anime and manga in my childhood. The story might shock and make a weird first impression for some, but I was already acquainted with the whole storyline. Basically: a dysfunctional Asian family (what's new drama world, huh?), "forbidden" love, high school life and lots of misunderstandings. As I remembered, the anime was quite long, but the story was so captivating, even the side stories of other characters. Naturally, it's difficult to squeeze in 50+ episode worth of story into a 2 hour movie, therefore, the movie was missing lots of key scenes from the original plot. This should've been made into a live drama adaptation. However, from a more positive view, I did enjoy the cinematic and the warm colors, the leads and their acting (surprisingly). Personally, I'd say it's an OK movie, better than an average shojo manga adaptation.

Would I suggest watching this? Sure, if you were a fan of the originals. But if are intrigued by the abnormal storyline, definitely start from the manga and climb your way up to this movie.
