2016/12/22 | 8989 views | Permalink | Source


tVN's 10th anniversary special weekend drama, "Goblin" has been receiving much popularity since it aired. However, as the story continues, more and more things have become a mystery to viewers.

1. Why can't the goblin's bride Ji Eun-tak (Kim Go-eun) pull the sword out?

The goblin, who has waited for hundreds of years to have the sword pulled out of him, has finally met the bride that would be able to do it for him. However, in episode 6, she is unable to pull the sword out. This made viewers confused as to whether she really is the bride or not.

2. Who is the man Ji Eun-tak is calling when she is 29 years old?

The goblin, who could not see Eun-tak's future, could suddenly see her at age 29. She is seen with short hair and is calling to someone else. With this, the goblin realizes that 10 years from now he will not be here and she will be with someone else. Many are curious as to who the mystery man is that Eun-tak is calling.

3. What is the role of Lee El? What is the meaning behind giving spinach and cabbage?

After Eun-tak's mom dies at age 9, she is rescued from the grim reaper by the Samsin grandmother. As a birthday present, she gives her cabbage. She also helps her get revenge to her aunt's family. Every time Ji is in trouble, the Samsin grandmother appears and helps her as her guardian angel. Many are curious as to what the meaning behind the cabbage and spinach is and are hoping that the answer will be revealed soon.

4. "9, 19, 29. Nine, the age before becoming a whole is always the most unstable". A message from the grim reaper.

When Ji Eun-tak asks about why she always meets the goblin at 9 and 19. The grim reaper answers in his mind by saying that every 9 a grim reaper will come find her even if it's not him. This is the destiny for people like Ji Eun-tak who escaped death. In Korea, many people believe that 9 is not a great number and so many avoid getting married or moving during that age.

5. What is the reasoning behind saying that "hell is a U-turn"?

In episode 6, a blind man meets his death and drinks the tea from the grim reaper. When the man asks where he should go, the grim reaper answers, "You can go the way you came in. Hell is a u-turn". When the man opens the door, he sees his service dog that has been waiting for him all this time. This scene could be portraying reincarnation and gives enlightenment to viewers to live without sin in this world.

The drama officials stated that "the mystery aspects of the drama that everyone is curious about will continue to play an important role throughout the drama. Please keep watching in order to see if the answers will be revealed".
