THE BEST BROMANCE
The Goblin and the Grim Reaper may have had been bachelors living their lonely lives before, but once they moved in with one another (KDrama forced-cohabitation trope FTW), life seemed to have become much more interesting.
The Goblin is hot tempered and the Reaper is cold and calm. Even their powers: Fire and Ice directly reflect this contrasting aspect.
Despite this, it seems that these two are so well matched and complementary in their personalities, level of maturity and tech skills… Suddenly, they found themselves needing to learn together, how to live in the present.
What should one do to achieve the best drama bromance?
I will play with you during dinner.
Meal times got more exciting and become fun mini battles:
I will exchange fashion tips with you.
No matter how tired he was, the Grim Reaper patiently entertained the Goblin’s insecure fashion show.
I will interrupt my drama-watching for you.
The Reaper is someone who would stop watching Dramas to help with the Goblin’s experiments. For all the drama lovers out there, we know this is a feat in itself…
I’ll give you and your bride some space.
I’ll help you with your rescue mission.
Even though its really unnecessary.
But we can look cool together.
When two beings who did not even need to walk from place to place, these two are really a childish pair made in…limbo? hahaha…
I will say sorry to you.
Even though the Goblin has never apologized to anyone, he was actually sincere when he felt bad for hurting the Reaper’s feelings.
I will respect your human butler.
I’ll cook with you.
I will learn how to use a smartphone with you.
I will be there to listen.
The Goblin is anxious now that Eun Tak can see his sword and maybe able to kill him.
After Eun Tak moved in, Goblin had to bunk with the Reaper for the first night before her room was ready.
Goblin was flustered because Eun Tak had agreed to pull out his sword to end his life. So he went looking for company at the Reaper’s tea shop. [ Ep 6]
I will give you dating advice.
I will be a little sad when you leave.
I will treasure what you gave me. [Ep 7]
I will make you face the Truth. [ E7]
Good friends want to help their buddies from falling into denial.
I won’t let you die.
He even tried to talk Eun Tak out of what she agreed to do. [ Ep 6]
[ Ep 9]
I will do anything to help you. Even Overtime.
Well…Almost…anything. It seems he draws the line when Eun Tak is involved.
I will say the tough words that you need to hear.
[ Ep 9 ]
I will drink with you.
Goblin is such a lightweight.
I will admire you.
I will tease you.
Even though the Reaper has been carrying himself with a grim facade, because he was constantly in ‘punishment’ mode, he kept trying not to laugh or be happy. But these two together constantly tries to cheer each other up in their own weird ways.
I’m so glad that this bromance was built with a very solid foundation from the beginning, because it felt right when it managed to withstand the impact of THE TRUTH of Grim Reaper’s Past Life.
They get along so well now, that our hearts ached. If only they had gotten a chance to get to know each other in the past. They would have been splendid as brother-in-laws, and things would not have come to this tragic pass. But in this lifetime, they were really great with one another.
The Grim Reaper and Goblin did things with each other, for each other, not out of any guilt, but just because they really enjoyed each other’s company.
Thanks for reading and I will continue about the Grim Reaper’s journey of self discovery in another post.
