These Are the Korean Dramas You Should Watch If You Miss Goblin
All good things must come to an end; sad, but true. The only good thing about the ending of K-Drama we love is the fact that we can binge-watch it until our eyes hurt (guilty!). Or we can watch another amaaazing K-Drama! So who's with us? Here's a list of shows you can watch and love just like how much you've loved Goblin.
- Rooftop Prince
(For when you want to watch another immortal love story)
This is one of those K-Dramas you love (and hate) because of it;s unique yet unpredictable love stories. Just like Goblin, this story proves that love conquers all, even time. JYJ's Park Yoo Chun exhibits his talent in acting as he portrays Prince Lee Gak, alongside Park Ha which was played by Han Ji Min. They both won the Outstanding Korean Actor and Actress Awards at the 2012 7th Seoul International Drama Awards, and Best Couple Award at the 2012 SBS Drama Awards. Plus, fans from 35 different countries have visited the set where the drama filmed their Joseon era.
(For when you plan to start watching thriller dramas)
If you're into thrillers, then this one's for you. Healer represents the behind-the-scenes work people do to solve a case—a big one, perhaps. And while doing so, the case changes them to become a better person. As weird as it may sound, this thriller drama can also give you all the kilig you need.
(For when you want to watch another drama-romance genre)
Dramas that address political issues are rare, so we're glad we have this K-Drama to watch. You'll surely learn something from Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk as they portray two apprentice reporters, Choi In Ha and Choi Dal Po, who fought for justice and truth in a world where news reports are manipulated. This drama won multiple awards including the Outstanding Korean Drama Award at the 10th Seoul International Drama Awards. Plus, Shin Hye's Pinocchio syndrome just made the drama more worth watching (and cuter, too)!
- My Girl
(For when you want to watch Lee Dong Wook's breakthrough drama)
If you haven't watch My Girl yet, then you're seriously missing out on life. This is a classic rom-com Korean drama that launched Lee Dong Wook and Lee Dae Hae into K-Drama stardom as they portray Seol Gong Chan and Joo Yoo Rin, "fake" cousins who fell in love with each other.
- 49 Days
(For when you want to watch another fantasy drama)
Also known as Pure Love, this drama represents the Buddhism belief that after a person dies, their soul wanders on Earth for 49 days before they can truly be at peace. It's a fantasy drama worth watching because of its fascinating theological representation. Make sure you have a box of tissue beside you when you watch this, though.
