There is no stopping of Gong Yoo's Goblin, literally! After dethroning other popular K-dramas like "The Legend Of The Blue Sea", "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" and "Descendants Of The Sun," the sixth episode achieved a record breaking 12.9 percent ratings overall, according to Nielsen Korea.

Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN's S.Coups has revealed that the drama is giving him sleepless nights. "I watch it whenever I can. I cut down on sleep to watch it. A fan recently gave me a collection of poems that appeared in 'Goblin.' I'm reading it these days and there is a memorable poem in it. It's called 'The Horizon.' I was so moved," the pop star was quoted saying to Soompi. Also known as Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, the series narrates the story of a Joseon warrior Kim Shin and his curse for an eternal life. To break the 900-year old quest, he needs the help of a human bride Ji Eun Tak.

The sixth episode ended with Eun Tak's failed efforts in removing the sword and the couple also shared their first kiss. The show also took a time lapse and Eun Tak is now 29. From the spoilers and newly released pictures, it looks like Kim Shin will have a rival in the upcoming episodes. Eun Tak suddenly meets her first love Tae Hee (guest star Jung Hae In) also a member of the college baseball team. Get ready for some funny antics from Goblin who goes to the team's locker room to check his rival. From the recap, it also looks like the couple will share some sweet moments and get to know each other better but it ended in a tragedy—Eun Tak meets with an accident. Will she die or go close to death?

Fans of the show have come up with a number of theories after Eun Tak failed to remove Goblin's sword. Some even predicted that she is not the true Goblin's bride and she is lying about being able to see the sword. Looks like fans will be subjected to a slew of emotional roller coaster rides in this week's episodes.
