'Goblin' became another hit for tvN and it adds another gem in Kim Eun Sook's crown. The drama starring Gong Yoo made headlines locally and abroad. Aside from the fantasy drama, Eun Sook is also the creator of the military drama "Descendants of the Sun" which starred Song Joong Ki and Song He Kyo.There is no denying that Eun Sook's creations became global hits and for good reason. Hence, it did not come as a surprise when the author was voted as the best writer.

Eun Sook got 19 out of 30 votes in a survey where entertainment industry experts and writers participated in. Eun Sook is definitely not a one hit wonder because the average viewership of all 10 dramas she penned is 22.05 percent. Many dramas today consider this number as above average.

Eun Sook's most popular works include "Descendants of the Sun," "Goblin," "Secret Garden,"Lovers in Paris," and "Heirs." The latest survey also reveals that out of all her works, 13 votes went to "Goblin."

Some experts find the story perfect in every way including the acting, the dialogue, and the characters, and the story itself. The shift between the present and the historical sequence was perfectly orchestrated and it adds value to the story. One comment detailed why "Goblin" is one of the best dramas that Eun Sook wrote.

"This was a drama that made use of not only the main actors but all of the supporting actors too. There may have been a bit lacking in the middle episodes, but the final episodes can satisfy all of the viewers, and it seems like the prejudice that Kim Eun Sook can only write romantic stories was broken. This drama showed the power of Kim Eun Sook."

There are some fans who believe that Eun Sook's success is mainly due to the popularity of the main leads in her drama. This survey is one evidence that Kim Eun Sook's "Goblin,"Descendants of the Sun" and most of her other dramas are a work of art.
