The Lonely and Great God

One of my absolute favorite scenes from the show

I’ve been debating on what my first official blog post should be, and since I believe in signs, I’m going with a K-Drama review on Goblin.

The sign was through a song. I put my music on shuffle as I got ready for my day and the theme song for Goblin randomly played. Honestly, I’m a pretty young K-Drama fan, but I do believe that “Stay With Me” by CHANYEOL feat Punch is one of the most iconic soundtracks in K-Drama. The first note of the song automatically makes my mind play the scene in the photo above, followed by a montage of my different scenes from the show.

Before I continue, I also would like to point out another song from the show, “Round and Round” by HEIZE and Han Suji, which I think is the actual song for the opening credits. Beautifully sung, it really sets the mood for the show. Its soundtrack as a whole, is actually worth a listen.

The drama, simply put, is about a Goblin waiting for his Bride. I’ve never done a review before so let me figure out how to do this.

The show’s casting was on point. The chemistry between the characters were absolutely perfect. I can’t imagine anyone else but Dong Wook play the Grim Reaper.

Every character showed growth, one way or another. Everybody (somehow) had a happy ending after having to go through some hardships throughout the show.

The show somehow got me hooked, despite not being a fan of Kim Go Eun at that time. Every episode left me hanging that I found myself watching one episode after another, only to realize that it’s already 2 am and I had to wake up for work in a few hours. The story line was simple, but will get you attached to certain characters that you’ll find yourself rooting for all of them.

Although the show had a few mythical creatures as their main characters, they somehow made them relatable to us mere humans, which I personally enjoyed. It talked about fate and the after life, which might make you want to Google about how Korean Culture views the after life.

All in all, I’d give this a 4.5/5 and would highly recommend for people who want to start watching K-Drama. It’s definitely the show that will get you hooked.

I promise to get better at my next k-drama reviews. I hope you somehow enjoyed my first review and stay tuned for my next ones. Salud!

Mic Test, 1, 2, 1, 2..

It’s been years since my days in Tumblr and LiveJournal. At some point, I think I may have also had a Xanga account. After months of saying I would start a blog again, I’m finally here.

I’ve missed writing outside of my personal journal, which I don’t even really update anymore, and I needed an outlet that would let me exceed the 280 character limit of Twitter. With what’s going on in the world, I realized that I needed to somehow do something creative that I’ve always loved to do – writing.

With this platform, I plan on typing up my random thoughts, talk about my previous travels (maybe I’ll finally get around to editing videos from my Europe trip in 2019), review some K-Dramas (LOL), share some recipes and I guess food reviews, give insights about music business, and just really update the internet with whatever’s inside my brain.

I told myself that I’m doing this for myself, so I won’t have any schedules in posting, though the marketing person in me has already created a content plan and schedule. This blog is my diary in which I get to show the world the parts of me that I’d like to show.

So if you’re interested, come back in a few days and I just might have another post.

Salud!
