A must watch! But when you get to Episode 13, have a box of Kleenex with you. Man, Kim Go-eun can cry like there’s no tomorrow. And Gong Yoo is bae. How can one person look so elegantly handsome? Can you imagine having a Goblin as a boyfriend? Going to different places effortlessly! I love the bromance between the Goblin and the Grim Reaper, so cute. I loved Gong Yoo in Coffee Prince and I was devastated when he had to go to the army after that one. I don’t think we have Goblins in our culture. Or something similar to one. We also don’t have Grim Reapers. And I think that’s what makes it also interesting. I loved the concept of having tea with the Grim Reaper, it’s original.
But it’s sad that Eun-tak chose to save those kids causing her death. The scene at the tea shop with Eun-tak, Reaper and Goblin was heartbreaking. Ewan ko na lang kung hindi ka pa iiyak. And that happy ending is so short. I hated that one. After crying so hard when she died, I wanted a few more minutes with them together. I felt so cheated.
