Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun’s Romantic Moments in Goblin
As it has been mentioned above, Goblin is a tvN romance-fantasy drama that tells the story of Kim Shin (Gong Yoo), who used to be an unbeatable general in wars, but gets killed by the young king who ruled at that time and in the end, becomes a goblin who is immortal. He has a sword in his chest, and he is unable to die unless the sword is removed from his chest. But, the only one who can remove the sword is his bride. At first, Kim Shin thought that he is blessed with immortal life. As times goes by, he realizes that is actually a curse.
One night, he saves a pregnant woman who gets into an accident destined to die, and it turns out the woman is pregnant with Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun). Because her mother was saved when she was supposed to die, she becomes a missing soul, as well as the goblin’s bride. Not only that, but she is also able to see ghosts around her. Unfortunately, her mother passed away at an early age and she has to stay with her evil aunt’s family. One can say that her life is full of misery until she met Kim Shin on her birthday and the love story between them develops.
There are many romantic moments between Kim Shin and Ji Eun-tak that you can find in this drama. Even their very first encounter is very dream-like. They first meet on Ji Eun-tak’s birthday by the sea, where Kim Shin appears in front of Ji Eun-tak after she blows the candles on her birthday cake. Even on their first meeting, they are already bickering. Ji Eun-tak, who sees Kim Shin holding buckwheat flowers, asks him to give them to her as her birthday present. As Kim Shin gives her the flowers, Ji Eun-tak asks what is the meaning of the flower, and it turns out the flower means “lovers.” Here is the video of Ji Eun-tak’s first encounter with Kim Shin:
After her first encounter with Kim Shin, she becomes curious about him and keeps asking if he is a goblin or not. This is because the ghosts around her have always called her the ‘goblin’s bride’ even though she didn’t know why. Kim Shin, who is reluctant to open his heart at first, tries to escape by opening a door that brings him to Canada, with his ability. Unexpectedly, Ji Eun-tak is able to follow him and doesn’t end up in the original place where they came from.
Ji Eun-tak, who isn’t aware of her ability and their whereabouts at first, gets excited when she finds out the truth. She happily goes around the country and is amazed by Kim Shin’s ability. At that time, she decides that she will marry him and says ‘I love you’ to Kim Shin sweetly, which makes the man feel flustered. You can see it here:
As Ji Eun-tak still feels excited about her first visit to another country, Kim Shin has no choice but to follow her. In the end, they unconsciously have a date in Canada. At some point, they walk in a park where the leaves from the maple tree are falling. As they walk, Ji Eun-tak tries to catch the falling maple leaves, the one who succeeds in catching one, however, is Kim Shin. Ji Eun-tak tries to take away the leaf he catches, but he doesn’t let her to and asks her why. Ji Eun-tak answers that if someone catches a falling maple leaf, then they will fall in love with the person they are walking with.
