Goblin: The Lonely & Great God

February 3, 2017

Goblin: The Lonely and Great God is a 16-episode South Korean fantasy drama that revolves around an immortal being seeking a bride who can end his life. This being is roughly referred to as a "goblin," so it's not the typical stumpy, green goblin with pointy ears that I'm used to. This folklore is very refreshing and it's fascinating to to learn about their myths and culture. What's most interesting to me is their take on reincarnation. Death is a very touchy subject, and the amazing writer, Kim Eun Sook, is able to address the fragility of life in such a beautiful way that it gives me some comfort and closure in real life.

 

I won't be going into further detail, but all I can say is that this series took me on a roller coaster of emotions. From the bittersweet story, the breathtaking cinematography, and the eerie music to the hilarious bromance, the epic romance, and the talented actors, I thoroughly enjoyed drenching my shirt with a flood of tears. Though, I could do away with the long scenes of characters just staring at each other. I also have some thoughts on the last few episodes, but to refrain from spoiling it for those who haven't watched it yet, I won't be discussing it here.

 

After this beautiful drama reached its end, I was inspired to either play the piano, practice Chinese calligraphy, or just create something. However, my piano was given away many years ago and I do not own any brushes or ink anymore. So my last option was to create digitally.

 

Meet voxel Mr. Buckwheat (who is also looking for his bride):

 

 

 

He's created after the plush that the female lead, Ji Eun-tak, cherishes:

 

 

It's not too common for me to feel inspired by a show, so I highly recommend this drama!
