I almost didn’t reblog this like some kind of idiot
At the beginning of episode five, when the Goblin realizes he loves Eun Tak, there is a big color shift. These two episodes are drenched with yellow, particularly in the lighting.
You see it in how the Goblin decorates her room.
The Goblin’s sweaters…
Even in the poles he leans up against.
I just imagine some poor guy having to track down a yellow bike for this shot:
Sorry, got distracted, back on topic. Even when things are dark as the Goblin struggles with a heart-wrenching choice, there are always a few yellow candles burning.
It’s clear his world has shifted on its axis. There is a warmth and brightness that wasn’t there before. And just in case we missed it, the writer hits us over the head:
In Episode 1, two of the characters were treated with a yellow accent, standing out from everyone else. I wondered what they had in common. Those two guys are now his roommates and friends. (If we go with the theory that the young King is now the Grim Reaper.) So for the Goblin, yellow = love.
[SEE POINT ONE: PEDOPHILIA? HERE]
[POINT TWO: AGE GAP, GROOMING(?), IMMATURITY OF THE HEROINE(?)]
► AGE GAP
I have read tons of comments from the antis of the show that the fans of Goblin are delusional for liking the developing relationship between Eun Tak and Shin. They say we deny the age gap between them and/or that we ignore it.Excuse me but when? The show itself has spoken about the age gap, they weren’t even subtle about it because it is obvious, so why gloss over it? So the question is where is this “delusion” of ours you are speaking of coming from? Do you want us to caption every comment or posts with
“Age gap alert” or something? Antis we know ok, we know just cause we don’t make it the topic of every discussion about the drama does not mean we deny it.
Why talk about it over and over and over when the drama has acknowledged it already a bunch of times? And does it matter?
“It’s like he’s grooming her, gross”
Now this one just DISGUSTS me. For anyone who does not know what “grooming” these people are talking about:
“Child grooming is befriending and establishing an emotional connection with a child, and sometimes the family, to lower the child’s inhibitions for child sexual abuse.”
Tell, just tell me, if these people who are saying Shin seems like he’s grooming Eun Tak make any sense. At this point honestly I’m not sure if these antis really watch the show, or pay attention to it.
Honestly, tell me has Shin showed any sexual attraction towards Eun Tak? Is there even a slight hint? He just discovered his special feelings towards Eun Tak, he isn’t even acting upon it. He avoids her whenever she tries to get close.
► EUN TAK IS IMMATURE
I disagree, she is a responsible person who strives regardless of her Mother’s demise, her mother’s demise being blamed on her, the abuse of her second family, getting harassed by ghosts, the bullying she goes through at school by her classmates plus her teacher,
Despite all these hardships, she studies hard, she works hard too.
She might accept help from Shin for, but she doesn’t expect help from him forever.
She’s a strong and admirable person who still smiles brightly despite EVERYTHING.
She’s pushing Shin’s buttons to get him to open up to her because she wants to understand, she wants to know this goblin she’s been hearing all her life about, because she has the right to know. The moment she comes close to knowing something about him he avoids her immediately, suddenly disappearing, who wouldn’t be annoyed? who wouldn’t act up?
For someone who was put in her situation without even having a choice, she’s doing an amazing job handling the situation she’s in.
She didn’t ask to be a missing soul, she didn’t ask to be the Goblin’s bride, she didn’t ask to be left alone to such horrible people.
But still, she strives.
► QUESTIONS NITPICKERS MIGHT ASK. Feel free to add
“They only addressed the Age gap cause some people said something”
► Yes those people called out the show for allegedly promoting Pedophilia as well, good job.
If they addressed it because of the criticism or not, It does not matter.
You cannot hurt the drama with these types of criticism because in the first place they never tried to gloss over the fact. My friend from the start, from episode we all knew, It’s an obvious fact that he’s older come on
“Shin is showering Eun Tak with gifts, It’s disturbing |
Shin lures Eun Tak with his wealth | He shows off his wealth | She talks about money all the time”
► Nope, he had provided her with things she needs, a place to stay, a bedroom to sleep in and bought other necessary things she needed to be comfortable and he gave her companions to come home to. He gave her literally what she just needed, the girl never had an umbrella for herself before for Christ’s sake!
5,000$ is nothing to him, why not give it to her on a whim if that’s the case then?
This is petty, really, talk about nitpicking. Most of those favors he did was for her to 1. tell him if she sees the sword 2. for her to convince her pull the sword. In the recent episodes he was nice towards her for he believed those were his lasts days. He made sure she’ll be taken care off even after he was gone, he made sure that she eats well, get educated and will live well.
Is it the beef? Are you talking about them eating in fancy beef? Is the fancy steak the problem here? lmao
Please explain how that is grooming?
He’s disturbing? The way these antis think is disturbing.
► Do you really think Eun Tak just wants money? She’s all talk. She could’ve been comfortable living in that penthouse Deok Hwa’s grand father set up for her but no.
Because underneath it all what she needed was someone to be there for her.
Literally all her life, she had be strong and depend on herself.
Is it really morally wrong for her to depend at least a little on someone?
“Why does she act like a child/cutesy”
Note: I read this comment that said “It’s creepy, with her wearing that school skirt of her and all”
► She’s just naturally adorable ever since she was a kid she’s been bright like the sun, even long before she was born she was loved
(damn the feels!)
seriously it baffles me how these antis are suddenly so disturbed by aegyo, and her acting up is mostly to annoy Shin or exactly because of of Shin (she’s mostly just confuse as well cause Kim Shin acts like a kid himself)
(Have you ever seen Eun Tak finger gun our Grim Reaper? No right?)
She can say the most mature thing If she wants to, If the situation asks for it she can express mature thoughts.
She smiles and acts positively because once she’s alone and with her thoughts, the loneliness comes. The jolliness is her way to cope with her misfortunes.
She still yearns for her parents.
► About that uniform thing, seriously she is either going to/at work or going to/at school. Need i explain more? .
“Eun Tak’s annoying/ I hate it when she acts all cutesy and stuff”
► Wow, you must have deep seeded hate inside your heart to find her annoying. If that’s the case, you may stop watching the drama.
“ I don’t support Eun Tak and Shin/ I like it when it’s Shin only, It’s annoying when he’s with Eun Tak/ I only support GR and Sunny’s story”
► Those statements above irritates the crap out of me.
I love love LOVE Grim Reaper and Sunny, I’m invested in their story as much as i am invested with Eun Tak and Shin’s. I can’t stop smiling or/and squealing when GR and Sunny has an interactions. (i love how all the characters are so extra as well, like you won’t forget them, they don’t just disappear in the background)
All their stories intertwine, literally their fates are connected, how could you put down one and support the other?
And yeah liking Shin? Calling him cute? but then calling him uncomfortable, too old, pedophile like the next?
Talk about Hypocrisy.
(I would screen caps the posts, comments and such from various platforms and blogs to prove my point, but I’m not gonna call people JUST for that)
Better to just stop watching the drama entirely and hate it full time if you feel so disturbed because no matter what, antis will find something wrong in everything, so what’s the point of watching it?
Again, those of you who are a fan of the drama, think for your own and analyze the drama by yourself. Don’t be swayed by bandwagon hate created by antis and and click bating websites. It’ll spoil you from such an amazing drama.
I just wanted to post this before the next two episodes starts tomorrow.
I cannot wait for the new developments on this drama ♥
