Why do people always compare it to Goblin? And always implying that Goblin is the greatest kdrama of all time like duh? IT'S THE WORST KDRAMA LAST YEAR, I dozed off while watching it, it was very childish, the plot seems didn't move. I really don't get it why people are loving it. Anyway, I've already watched the 2 episodes of Hwayugi with english subs this time, I can say that it was very Hong Sisters, the way they created the world (Yes. I've watched all the Hong Sisters drama, just didn't finish Warm and Cozy), it's so much like a manga-like world. They are the best at making the premise like who would've thought about a woman seeing ghosts and when he touch that man, the ghosts will disappear (Yea, it's Master's sun. haha) very interesting.
As an avid watcher of Hong Sisters' drama, I am more like excited on the plot development because you know, that's their weakest point as they will just recycle every plot from their past dramas. As also from my observation, I am just a little sad because the comedic style of hong sisters are changing. You know, in their past dramas they used the situation to become comical (He's Beautiful, My Girl and The Greatest Love) with the comedic timing of the actors, but in here and Master's Sun, they rely much on the actor's comedic timing and not much about their writing.
But, anyway, the 2 episodes, premise is interesting, acting is kinda over the top, the script might be witty but the execution failed this time. I hope the Hong Sisters should partner with the PD of He's Beautiful next time.
