The Lonely and Great God: Goblin Episode 01

That’s how you start a series.I felt like watching a movie during the events of the Goryeo Period… Talk about that cinematic quality. The plot was really interesting. Character introduction was really nice for Kim Shin and Eun-tak. Kim Shin was portrayed as a great general during the historical period wherein he was a loyal comrade to his troops and a loyal to the king… except that he was screwed up and was executed along with his poor sister. Eun-tak was the daughter of a single parent whose life was saved by Kim Shin on a vehicular accident. Which leads to the love story of the series.goblin1-00905a

The Gods were indeed cruel when they gave their punishment on Kim Shin, and I find it weirdly satisfying, in a vengeful sort of way, whenever a human says there’s no point to prayer because the gods don’t bother listening, and knowing they’re right. I suppose we will have to watch along how he deals with this punishment.

The goblin-reaper tandem is shaping up to be quite entertaining, but I like that there’s more to it than simple grudging roommates. If the goblin’s bride is the reaper’s lost quarry, their whole relationship puts everything in peril, and we will look forward to seeing how each party reacts once the identities are made known.

The story definitely lightened up and brought in the humor once the couple met, so I’m not sure how much of the show will turn to Romantic Comedy, but I hope it retains that sense of melancholy and fantasy. So what’s next for our Hopeless girl and the mysterious goblin? we’ll have to find out.
