Lately, I find that I have been enjoying watching these little mini dramas. It’s nice to get through the day with quick drama because often times it is just like those 16 hour dramas but in a condensed manner. This drama was no different, we had all the delicious cliches that we have gotten used to in kdramas in just about 3 hours and honestly something like this definitely only needed these three hours.
Plot: Fun idea! A goblin goes around and collects kisses to become human. Of course he gets into an entanglement with the female lead. I will admit, I didn’t get the female lead’s appeal. I actually found myself liking her best friend and the Goblin Queen instead. The plot was as predictable as they come and I really can’t fault much of anything. My only true complaint is why her ass was just sitting there crying when he got injured instead of calling an ambulance? Like I get that he is a magical being or whatever, but come on man… And another thing…. he could have fought the exorcist all this time? Also just a little tidbit but how tf they just decide that we have only 10 emotions. Fuck that. Oh and lastly.. WHY THEY WASTE ALL THE COFFEE AND CAKE!!!!!
Romance & Acting: Romance was fine. I mean I didn’t see any scorching burning chemistry between them. I think he had decent chemistry with all the women he kissed, am I saying this because it wasn’t a peck and they were sucking face? Yes. The Goblin Queen and the Exorcist though… I want that romance story ahaha. Give us season two! Don’t be shy! The acting was quite average, but that is what an average script calls for. I suppose the male lead was the best of the bunch alongside the goblin queen. I mean it really wasn’t much to write home about in any event. So-so.
Overall, a good way to pass time and try to fight the urge to criticize everything. ♫ Let it beeee let it beeee just let it beeee. ♫
Rewatch Value: 7/10
