Goblin came with a bang and went out with a bang-bang. The story was written very well; unique, strange, but beautiful. The love affair was pretty epic. It was a parade of love, death, goodbyes, and chances. You will witness the lonely soul who outlives others because of immortality and to understand how to value life from no purpose and emptiness.
This drama is almost perfect in every aspect. The plot was exceptional. The cinematography was amazing. There were a lot of beautiful and picturesque scenes, the outfits were classy and even the OST gave a major plus. It seems everything fits together perfectly.
