Standard

I’ll be honest, the only reason that I watch this show is because it was partly shot in the capital of my home province, Québec city. I think that it’s such a beautiful city, so I was happy to see it on screen.

We follow Kim Shin (Goong Yoo), a military man who gets slain by the king that he is in charge of protecting. Due to his rage and the number of people that he’s killed, he is cursed to become a goblin and to recall every life that he’s witnessed.  900 years later, he saves the life of a woman and her unborn child who will grow up to be Ji Eun Tak (Kim Go Eun). Eun Tak was gifted with the abilities to see ghosts and due to this, she finds out at a young age that she is the goblin’s bride. Due to some events, Kim Shin and Eun Tak cross paths. But since Eun Tak was never supposed to be alive, she has a grim reaper (Lee Dong Wook) who wants to bring the scales back to balance. We follow the love story between Kim Shin and Eun Tak as she is the only one that he loves and she’s the only one who could break his curse.

This drama is amazing, though I found it did drag in the middle. This drama also gave be my one request and that was to not have anyone die from cancer. The scenes were shot beautifully and were breath taking. It was so nice seeing Gong Yoo in a fantastic series again because he’s a talented actor. I could rave about Gong Yoo’s and Lee Dong Wook’s chemistry but I think most of the interwebs have done enough of that. It’s an excellent series, but I will warn you to not watch the final episode in public because I was balling. All in all though it’s well worth the watch.
