    It's ok but overrated, 6.5/10. I expected shinigami to be more serious and grim, not half hearted comedic relief. The tension is gone, plot is dragged out with too many emotional moments and emoing of the shingami and dokkebi who don't act their age. It's also a fashion show of two male models as they change clothes every scene.

    I think that's kinda the whole point, the plot is meh but gong yoo and lee dong wook are great actors, if you ask what happens after ep 8 I can't tell you but the bromance between the 2 is the most interesting part of this drama...plus you gotta admit that that is one good-looking goblin and a drop dead handsome grim reaper

    I thought it was supposed to be one of the top k dramas but if the plot is meh it doesn't matter how good looking actors are.
    Look at Kaiji anime for example, it's so good yet they purposfully used ugly animation style.

    You know, since you took a liking to drama, give "Ougon Kishi GARO" a try when you have time, it got nice action and a fair story (a mix between dark fantasy, modern day and of course, drama in it but not drama focused) XD

    I agree that Goblin is overrated, though I don't know about giving it a 6.5. It's been too long since I've watched it so I don't remember how I would have rated it. I do remember that the main couple had zero chemistry (understandably due to the age difference). I think the most enjoyable parts were Kim Shin + Grim Reaper and Grim Reaper + Sunny.

    Goblin was good, but that ending... a steaming pile of dung. Sometimes keeping things simple is the best.
