Two of the most top rated korean dramas has ended this January. Goblin aired its last episode 21st of January 2017 while Legend of the Blue Sea ended January 23 2017.  Both  korean dramas are interesting and exciting. Both soars high in the ratings. It didn’t fail to impressed the viewers. The actors of each k-dramas  did a great job in portraying their characters. They have few similarities with in each stories.




Goblin :  Ji Eun Tak forgot all her momories for Kim Shin after he left when the  sword  was removed. Also for the people connected to him except for the Grim Reaper and Sunny

LOTBS :  Shim Cheong removed all the memories of her from her friends especially Heo Joon Jae and went back to the sea.

* both Ji Eun Tak and Hoo Joon Jae wrote in the notebook some of their memories though Ji Eun Tak didnt wrote everything.

Love (lines)

Goblin : “A sad love” Ji Eun Tak’s answer after he was asked by the Goblin to choose between sadness or love.

LOTBS : ” Not being able to love because you couldnt remember, it’s better to love even if it hurts”  Hoo Joon Jae asked Shim Cheong not to erase his memory.

*choosing a hurtful and sadness thing for love


Goblin: Ji Eun Tak sacrifice and accept death though it is not for Kim Shin but to save the school childrens’ lives.

LOTBS : Shim Cheong faced death by protecting Hoo Joon Jae from the gun shot by  Heo Chi-hyun because of his anger after his  mother was arrested.

Supporting Characters 

Goblin :  Yoo Deok Hwa a rebellious but kind-hearted chaebol heir. The almighty borrows his body to speak to Goblin and Grim Reaper.

LOTBS : Tae Oh a genius hacker and a con-man who works together with Nam Doo and Hoo Jon Jae.

*both plays a young men whose characters  are significant in both dramas.

Both ends happily. Shim Cheong went back  and got married to Hoo Jon Jae and live with him while Ji Eun Tak met Kim Shin on her next life in Canada. No more Goblin and Legends of the Blue Sea . Hope the other korean dramas will be as fascinating as the two.  Have you also noticed the similarities?
