Goong Yoo's latest drama Goblin, which is making fans crazy with its interesting twist and turns, is creating new records. A few days back, we reported that the drama had dethroned other top Korean dramas like "The Legend Of The Blue Sea" "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" and "Descendants Of The Sun," to top the rating charts.
With a record-breaking premiere rating in tvN's history, it is likely to surpass the records set by 'Reply 1988,' which holds the highest tv rating of all tvN dramas. According to AllKPop, "the latest episode of the trending drama aired on January 6 recorded average viewer ratings of 15% and the highest of 17.2%. This is also a 1.8% increase from last week's highest viewer ratings."
Then, one of the drama's OST 'Beautiful' by Crush, which was released on December 17, received the top spot instantly. It has been ranked number one on music charts overtaking Melon, Mnet, Olleh Music, Bugs, Genie, Monkey3, and Naver Music.
Now, it is followed by Songstress Ailee, R&B group Urban Zakapa, and April 2nd's Kim Kyung Hee's tracks for the series. As per a report on Soompi, "As of January 10, all eight major Korean music charts featured either Ailee's OST "I Will Go to You Like the First Snow," Urban Zakapa's OST "Wish," or Kim Kyung Hee's OST "And I'm Here" in first place. Ailee's track was in first on the real-time charts of Melon, Genie, Naver, and Monkey3, while Urban Zakapa's song came in first on Bugs, olleh, and Soribada. Kim Kyung Hee's newly released "Goblin" OST entitled "And I'm Here" took first place on Mnet at the time."
Meanwhile, the drama, which portrays the romance between a high school girl, played by Kim Go Eun and Goblin an adult male in his 30s, is reaching its climax with few high-intensity scenes. In the 12th episode, we saw Goblin wanting to take revenge on the grim reaper while Eun Tak seems to have lost her ability to see supernatural things.
With the finale falling on Jan 21, we hope that the writers will not give us a heartbreak by killing any of the characters.
