@Regrann from @goblin.ks.et - (3) (continued from last post)
But he did fall in love and fell so hard. It took a great girl, of course. We have discussed in length how great ET was. But in KS' case he could have met lots of great women in his 900 years travelling. What made ET different? Let's hear you say it 'Because she could see a certain something in him!!!' 👏 But what was that 'something'? Was it the sword? Sure. But to me it was the fact that she saw and got to know him as who he was: a goblin. After 900 years of loneliness because he couldn't show his true identity to anyone except to the Yoo family, it must have felt liberating to be himself around someone else. And if that someone was beautiful, great and willing to love him for who he was then how could he not fall in love? Even if she might not have been his fated bride. To make this point even clearer we had a study in contrast which was the Grim Reaper and Sunny, whose relationship couldn't move forward (before the reincarnation thing was discovered) because he couldn't tell her who he really was.
Goblin started with waiting, moved its narrative along with waiting and ended with more waiting, waiting for that one true love, that one person who could see and love you as who you were, that one person you could be comfortable being yourself with. ET said to KS 'I guess the best things were always late in coming, just as you were'. Little did she know that sentence best described her, for all the waiting he'd had in the past and all the waiting he'd have in the future!
So to whom this post is dedicated, you know who you are. For you've inspired me with your bravery of not being scared of waiting (I said this because I once was). For I know you will find who or what you're waiting for (I said this because I have), may be someone who you can be your true self around. Maybe that person is waiting for you to find him, too. And that moment when you find each other and look at each other's eyes just like KS and ET did on that autumn hill overlooking Quebec in sunset, the wait that had seemed like a hundred of years would then be nothing but a wink of time! 🍁💕🌸
