  1. Hey guys Has anyone heard another version of Punch ft Chanyeol's Stay with me? There was a youtube video of a "version 2" that had a different version of Punch's part and the instrumental, and it showed up in one of the earlier episodes (I don't remember which one, so I can't pinpoint to a part in the drama). It wasn't released officially, and I can't find it anymore. Was wondering if any of you might have heard it as well and know of another link or file
  2. I know everyone's antsy waiting.. but so hey what songs do you guys will play during the last episodes LOL or just your favorite songs from the OST I really hope they'll use more of Chanyeol and Punch's Stay with Me. I wouldn't have watched Goblin as early as I did if it weren't for seeing a post for the song on A Koala's Playground blog. I love a great duet, and the single instrument thing that plays leading up to Punch's vocals gives so much anticipation and dramatic flair to whatever scene don't you think I was always more excited for a scene when it came on (ending of Episode 1 of them in Canada). And I also love the instrumental beginning of Sam Kim's Who Are You. I am a really big fan of movie and TV soundtracks, because when I hear the song randomly again after, it gets nostalgic and I always remember what I associated that music with from the film or show. So I hope people are not too upset after the show finishes its run as there's always the OST to run back towards if there's no time for a rewatch
  3. @seasonsoftheheart32 I won't be watching live! No other reason than I don't know how to do that... lol I'm along the East Coast (beast coast) in the US, so live streaming at 8am isn't bad at all, but I'm also hoping when I wake up there will be english subtitles ready so no need for any waiting... I just need to avoid you guys for a while right before and during the episode so I don't get any spoilers haha I think the last 2 episodes will kind of be like the Harry Potter 7.. they'll divide the episodes (15 and 16) but that's just for time and order sake than actual for the material. So I wouldn't be surprised if they cut 15 at the climax and dead middle of a scene, have a longgggg commercial break, and but then for MORE people to return for episode 16, which I hope happens! If they do it like this, episode 16 should just skip the 5-minute recap they always have.
  4. That is what stumped me too about the ending, her necklace, but I thought it was also just some draw to it. Kinda like Sunny and GR to the jade ring on the pedestrian walkway. I thought the writer wouldn't be so cheap/not creative by throwing in amnesia, but Euntak's convo with Sunny about traveling for the first time is what's making me guess the memory loss thing. And I feel like GR would play some role in EunTak's memories. I like your take on the ending. She doesn't get amnesia, but decides to let go of Kim Shin since he's dead, which is understandable, until he shows up when she's 29 Outside of her relationships with the other characters, I hope the writer does develop her to be her own entity when she graduates college, rather than as the Goblin's bride, or GR's missing person lol, or Sunny's part time worker, and temporarily forces her to grow up independently without the strange and beautiful around her. Because we haven't seen EunTak as just herself as a student for a while, it'd be nice for her and for us to her have some normalcy (or mundaneness lol life's more interesting with a Goblin) before Kim Shin returns. As for the letter she wrote, I think that will be revealed when Kim Shin the CEO returns to Quebec no matter what happens, whether he loses his memory, she loses it, everybody loses it, none of them loses it ETC. I don't think the letter was ever sent to him in Korea, as suggested by an earlier post on this thread, because it was sent through the internal mail carrier in the hotel. And I loved Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind! It was a big plot to take with the science fiction aspect of it, but I like how it all ties back to them meeting, falling in love, and meeting again.
  5. I agree with your friend actually! He was rumored with Im Soo Jung in 2008, right before he entered the military because they were spotted entering the airport together, but both denied. After the military he did a movie with her and they were in the same agency I believe. It seems a bit odd that he would do a movie with a rumored girlfriend, but they didnt look chummy in the press conference for Finding Destiny. So I couldn't quite tell whether they dated/were dating or not. GY doesn't seem like one of those 30-40 something actors that would date a much younger actress, but Hyun Bin currently is (I don't quite believe Kang Sora is amongst his orbit in terms of popularity and esteem), Go Soo married a noncelebrity 11 years younger than him, and Lee Hyun Bun first dated Lee Min Jung when she was young and not famous and it'll take a lot for her to catch up to him in acting esteem. TBH, I feel like GY would match really well with celebs like Gong Hyo Jin, Jeon Do Yeon, Bae Doona, etc, that type of less conventionally attractive in South Korea's terms (more conventional: Kim Tae Hee, Han Ga In, SNSD's Yoona), who are slightly more alluring/charming, in which Im Soo Jung fits.
  6. for what it's worth, this is my theory for the ending.. Kim Shin returns to the field in which the butterfly-god decided to make him a goblin. now he gets a chance to live as a mortal due to his retributions in the last 900 years. He returns to modern life, in which Secretary/CEO Kim and DeokHwa will greet him (there was a spoiler picture) As for EunTak, I think she will nearly die of a heart attack (more like heartbreak) as suggested by GR's death card, but GR gets her help in time. He wants to erase her memories to soothe her heartbreak as promised to Kim Shin. She pleads him not to, but he does so anyway, cuz lol that's what he does (like did Sunny ask for her memories to be erased??). I can't really envision an ending in which both will keep their memory, I imagine it's possible for KS to do so, but EunTak will lose it (confirmed by the Canada restaurant flashforward in the earlier episodes). If he keeps his memories, then he lets her live as a normal 20 something without interfering in her life, which he can't really do without his powers, no summoning and teleportation and all.. Of course, fate brings them together when she's 29, and they fall in love again. OR KS will lose his memory as well. I think this will still bring the ending, of them meeting together when he's 37, she's 29, as renewed individuals. I think the whole memory loss or no memory loss is just dependent on the viewer, whether it is good/bad they carry the baggage of their memories with them. Oh and I think there will be a hopeful ending for Sunny and GR, it's a little bit too packaged nice and neat for them to be a couple married with children by the end, but I think it'd be cool for them to possibly meet again on that pedestrian bridge under different circumstances (no ring, no fated deaths, no fated anything). I'm one of those people that don't mind sad endings as long as they're appropriate and makes sense, don't think we will get a sad ending BUT We shall see what happens
  7. @seasonsoftheheart32 No wonder why I couldn't find it again. Thanks for letting me know ^^
  8. @seasonsoftheheart32 I don't remember at all what the titles were at all, but thanks for the heads up! I watched 1 full video, and it was narrated by a female voice, using clips of scenes and doing voiceovers over them. The channel had 8 or 9 videos, I'm not sure if each video was dedicated to an episode or just for order of upload purposes. Is this the same series you're referring to?
  9. Hi all! have any of you guys come across a series of Youtube videos in Mandarin discussing spoilers/minor details in the show? I remember watching one last week discussing about the 3 ghost sisters (1 was the fortune teller that told Sunny to stay away from the man in the black hat, 1 was the farmer ghost, and 1 hasn't been revealed). I can't find that video in my Youtube history, perhaps one of you may have watched it. THe original is probably not from Youtube, but that's where I watched it. I'd definitely like to rewatch some of those videos and be able to share it with the forum here Since it is in mandarin (although I'm not fluent), I don't mind sharing some plot points (under a spoilers tab ofc) if you guys would like.
  10. Do you guys think that the entire ending (most of Eun Tak + Kim Shin's arch) has already been filmed in Quebec, since they are willing to risk it to film 3 episodes over a week period? I wouldn't mind if they just didn't air Ep 14 so the actors can finally sleep. I hope the writer doesn't try to make any last minute changes, so she's aware pictures have already leaked. The writer has such a good eye for the young, tall, unconventionally handsome and charismatic actors? Who are actually good and charming onscreen? Kim Woo Bin from Gentleman's Dignity, Lee Jong Suk from Secret Garden, the entire male cast of Heirs pretty much lol KWB and LJS are both now leading in films and shows, and soon it'll be Sungjae!!
  11. This is completely off topic, but do any of you guys know if actors and actresses have to audition for their roles? In Hollywood and in Korea, some people are offered roles, which is fine, but in Hollywood at least everything is audition based and there are so many cast changes before the movie is made or TV pilot gets picked up. I totally understand GY getting offered the role, but besides the A-listers which only comes out to be a handful, what about everyone else? LDW had to prove himself after getting rejected by auditioning to the writer, and even the word "audition" wasn't explicitly stated in the articles I read up on. ANd he was rejected initially... just because.. (maybe he didn't have the right 'look', maybe the writer didn't want LDW to play second to GY, who knows, but that's all pretty meh reasons since he didn't audition). It's also odd to me when there's a really big height difference between the leads, which is fine the men are just extremely tall lol, but from a cinematographer's perspective, isn't it harder to catch them in the same frame? Off topic again, but sometimes in chase scenes the girls are wearing mega high heels to match the height of the male, which doesn't make sense.. cuz it's a chase scene lol. I feel like in Korea, there isn't the big audition where the leads show the director whether they have chemistry. It seems to me that through some way, the script gets delivered to actor, he/she has limited time to say yes/no, and if it is a no, production team makes offer to another person. If yes, then the person is cast. Is it really this simple? Please correct me if I'm wrong, or if any of you are korean film/TV insiders, I would definitely like to know!
  12. There was a 2011 interview I read on dramabeans link is here: Sure the interview is outdated, but this was 1-2 years following his discharge. I got the sense that he wanted an image change, and move away from the rom-com typecast. I'm not sure why he accepted Big (2012) since that was filmed following this interview, but I suppose the Hong sisters were too big of a name to refuse. Unfortunately, Big (2012) didn't do as well as people hoped, ratings wise and ending wise. This is what I've read online (Dramabeans & Koala's Playground) and I've only watched a handful episodes of Coffee Prince, but have watched A Man and Woman (2016) and now Goblin. So his most "current" films following Big, seems to be moving towards a different career route, less conventional, I would say. Especially A Man and Woman (I mean adultery is involved! so that's already pushing away some viewers) So maybe that's part of why he said no to all the big dramas up until now? Though since he accepted Goblin, I feel like he's far less likely to pick another drama.. he'll be 40 if not over 40 when he does another drama, and the roles in Kdramas seem a bit limited in their character archetypes.. I mean how long can you actually play the rich chaebol and not get tired of it or have seen enough people playing it? And then there's the issue of finding a compatible female lead.
  13. Sorry about that! And noted I don't mean to bash LDW at all.. My Girl w/ LDW was one of the first Kdramas I've watched, so he and the drama has a special place in my heart. But his TV career is much stronger than his movie career, I think that's fine, he's a star in his own right, different from how KGE chooses to do mostly movies but dabbles in TV, vs Gong Yoo who does both but mostly movies recently. I'm sorry if you took my comment harshly, I meant no harm, so why don't we continue with happier thoughts
  14. Thanks for making me aware! I apologize if I made any of you uncomfortable I suppose I got carried away with it all, I had already watched some of each of the 4 leads' works before Goblin, so I had a lot of preconceptions about the actors going into the drama so I was baffled by the criticism that's been thrown at the show since the start, and still baffled by.. No disrespect to LDW or YIN, but I still do think that certain international audiences, such as moviegoers but not drama watchers, may know more of GY and KGE because of their films that screened overseas.
  15. lol @ the anti KGE comments all over DB and elsewhere... that girl is a MOVIE star, gong yoo is a MOVIE star, Lee dong Wook is NOT, and neither is Yoo In Na I don't think people realize her star power.. shes already had a movie screened at Cannes, and Gong Yoo took over 10 years for Train to Busan to be screened in Cannes, and girl she is only 25 years old. LDW and YIN's careers are nowhere near that, which is fine, but I think it's unfair that people are stuck on that and turning a blind eye to the other cast members. The criticism towards her acting is just taking away from the show.. I suppose you can argue she isn't right for the part, since that's up to the opinion of the audience member, but it's pretty BS to say she's a bad actress. And ALSO why is everyone criticizing her for being young, and not GY for being old? Age works both ways!
