A strong 9/10... or 10.
I almost want to give it 10/10 but... nothing is ever perfect, although Goblin is very close to be perfection. This k-drama is, in my opinion, one of the best. First of all, its originality as well as the mix of genre (historical, drama, romance, thriller and fantasy) is absolutely incredible. Characters are really charming, and you'll appreciate every facets of their relationships, whether romantic or friendship. They're so likable that you just end up feeling like they're your friends too... which inevitably lead to you feeling all kind of emotions if you are the empathetic type. I ended up bawling my eyes out and laughing my a** off with them. Cinematography is incredible as well. Everything in this k-drama is beautiful, from the images to the soundtrack (seriously, one of the best in my opinion).
I don't have any negative comments.
