    my show notes:
    first, I’ll be watching Best Friends as soon as posible. I love a good boy love movie.
    second, you made me excited about missing 9 and the japanese drama.
    third. about the lives of Eun Tak. I remember the goblin crossing path with the teacher in the school (there was slow motion) so I thought that the woman in the past was the teacher’s past life, and he saw her future life which includes Eun Tak. so he saw her, but the translation said “visited” which could be confusing. Maybe you gather another theory by now?
    Also, I’m with Frances, I loved the romance, I get why it was problematic with the age diference but I’m too much of a sucker for romances.
    That’s it, thank you for the podcast!!!

    I never leave comments on these sites, but after listening to your last podcast, I had to! About Eun Tak’s first life, I agree with Marcela. He passed Eun Tak’s teacher in the hall and saw her past life in Joseon times. Then he remembers seeing her in Joseon in which he saw the teacher’s future life in the present leaving the classroom. In that vision he sees students who are taking selfies and along with that he sees Eun Tak in the classroom, but he didn’t know who she was at the time. Thus, he saw her for the first time back then because he saw her in someone else’s future life. I hope that clears it up!

    As for not seeing Deok Hwa 30 years in the future, we actually do! In that scene when a stranger runs into ahjussi secretary trying to fix the car, Deok Hwa is in the car. He’s probably 50 or so years old and he pokes his head out of the car wondering what’s going on. It’s not explicitly clear that this is Deok Hwa, but based on the personality, it’s implicit.

    Love your podcast!

    I also wanted to comment on Eun Tak’s previous life-issue because I had interpreted in a completely different way. I didn’t see the ahjumma in Joseon as Eun Tak at all, I always saw her as Eun Tak’s teacher in a previous life. When the Goblin graced Eun Tak’s teacher at school he saw a glimpse of the teacher’s earlier life and recognized that he had felt a connection with her previous incarnation because he, through her, could feel Eun Tak’s presence. It sounds more complicated now that I put it down in words but what I am trying to say is that the ahjumma was the teacher in an earlier life and that was the first time he met someone who was connected with his bride.

    Over analyzing done.

    I don’t think the traditional Korean dokkaebi are very much like the goblin in the drama. They kind of made up their own thing.
