Turn off the lights, the Goblin is coming
by | October 13, 2016 | 66 Comments
Okay, now that’s more like it. The first few glimpses we’ve had of Gong Yoo (Big) in his new tvN fantasy romance The Lonely, Shining Goblin have been pretty, but not all that different from any other drama hero he’s played. But in the newest teaser for the series, the spine-tingly factor has been turned... More »

It took a while, but we do meander back to our main relationship today after taking a few side trips to explore some supporting characters. I’ve generally enjoyed the characterizations in this drama (even the hateful ones) so I haven’t minded the detour, but I did feel like it was stretching too long so was... More »
