tvN's grand-scale drama 'Goblin' is off to a very impressive start!

The drama snagged everyone's attention when news came out that the scriptwriter of 'Descendants of the Sun' would be partnering up with actor Gong Yoo and top director Lee Eung Bok. 'Goblin' (fully 'The Lonely and Brilliant - Goblin') aired its 90-minute premiere episode on December 2, recording an average viewer rating of 6.9%, plus the highest rating during the broadcast at 9.3%. tvN's 'Reply 1988', the most recently ended of the 'Reply' series, started off with average viewer ratings of 6.7% and the highest rating during broadcast at 8.7% during its first episode. 

Not a bad start at all! The drama's impressive cast, including Gong Yoo, Kim Go EunLee Dong Wook, Yoo In Na, and BTOB's Sungjae, probably played a big role in attracting those viewer ratings! 

Did you tune into the first episode of 'Goblin', which people have been heralding as "the production that will raise Korean dramas to another level"?

The Goblin reminds me of Do Min Joon of "You "Who Came From The Stars".

The first episode got me hooked! Dramas rarely do that to me. I'm not a huge fan of any of the leads but I decided to give the drama a go because of its storyline. The first episode is filled with all types of emotions like suspense, sadness, happiness, humor and heart fluttering moments. Also, the acting is great! Don't hesitate and watch it!

I just watched ep 2 even without subs it looks amazing. I like the acting & its just beautifully shot. You can tell w lot of effort was put into making eacu episode. I have to admit tho, my fave parts were the interaction between Gong Yoo, Lee Dong Wook & Yook Sungjae.

yes the 1st episode is superb awesome!!! Full with tears, mystery and comedy scenes. The 1st episode production quality can be comparable to blockbuster movie quality. Can't wait for 2nd episode!

Was so skeptical about this drama at first with the lineup. But damn! The actors and actresses blended well together, no awkwardness at all. Let's just thank God that this drama is going to end 2016 on a good note.
