Gong Yoo is Too Sweet to be Scary

I’ve been loving Goblin… even though it has SOOO MANY PROBLEMS… I don’t care one bit.  I absolutely love this show so far and don’t mind it’s many, many issues with pacing, plot, and irregularities.  Gong Yoo is too freakin’ sweet, that’s why!  Pair him with the most adorable lost puppy eyed Grim Reaper of all time and you’ve left me with a shameless school girl crush on a show that doesn’t really deserve it.  But it does.  But it doesn’t!  But it does.  Oh… Goblin… my love for you is as ridiculously irrational as my crushes in real life.  The heart wants what it wants and it wants to see you wandering around a city with your ankles showing from under your short hemmed pants, apparently.

I mean… look at him!  Look at this handsome, sensitive man who smiles too easily to ever be a believable army general.  It’s like casting Tom Hanks a serial killer.  It just doesn’t work… his soul is too pure, it shows through the eyes… even if he is an amazing actor, there are some things that just don’t work.  Gong Yoo covered in blood?  Uhm… no.  Preposterous.  Outrageous.  Ludicrous.  And I still don’t care cause I love it so… they could have him run down the street with a chainsaw at this point and I’d still go “Oh my gosh, he’s soo sweet!  Look at him go!”

I look forward to reviewing this show when it’s done crossing the great subtitle divide to dramafever.  Until then… just had to take a moment and gush over it.  So cute!  So, so cute… gah…
