Writer Kim Eun Sook is undoubtedly one of the best South Korean writers in today's date. I would give anything to sit down and have a chat with her to understand how she comes up with such a variety of concepts for her shows. Take The King: Eternal Monarch as an example. The Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun starrer revolved around the concept of parallel universe, pushing us to think with every episode. Eun Sook intertwined a love story with time travel and suspense to serve an interesting watch. 

Speaking of interesting concepts, she also gave us Goblin. Formally known as Guardian: The Lonely and Great God, the fantasy drama revolves around a cursed immortal Goblin played by Gong Yoo. It stars Kim Go Eun as a bubbly school student who accidentally summons the Goblin. Viewers follow the events of the two then on. Goblin recorded a nationwide audience rating of 18.68% for its final episode. 

While she experimented with fantasy, she also worked her magic around realistic concepts. Take Descendants of the Sun as an example. She set a beautiful love story of two military soldiers like it might have happened with someone somewhere. That show ruined love for me because now, I am waiting for a love story similar to Captain Yoo Si-jin and Doctor Kang Mo-yeon, played by Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo. *Sobs* 

Last in the list is The Heirs. Featuring a stellar star cast, with Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye leading it, put her skills in the spotlight. Not only does the show feature a brilliant example of how a show should be layered, it also goes to show how every supporting cast member, even though it exceeds the ideal number, can be given a platform to showcase their story and talent. 

While we loved all the shows mentioned here, if you could pick one show written by Kim Eun Sook as her best series, which would it be? Vote and let us know.

For me... 1. TKEM 2. Goblin 3. Heirs 4. DOTS I honestly never really got the hype over DOTS, then again people have different taste... The Heirs, was also just OK really... I found too many unsatisfactory scenes...

All dramas are quite good, both some have limitations when it comes to gender or personal preference..... Goblin can't be introduced to people who cries alot for drama and hate sad ending, the heirs can't be introduced to people who hate fierce love triangle, DOTS is almost flawless but there is no much thriller or suspense which can be quite boring for some even with all the comedy......but TKEM has it all and fits all kinds of preferences, which is why it is the best, only people who doesn't like complicated stories bcos it's disturbing their brain....but we all know majority of people in the world likes dramas who make them think alot and this is why The king is so popular worldwide.......it is her best script

To be honest I was surprised that tkem came in Korean industry is different to their stupid rom com thinking,analyzing,twist,unpredictable,theories after theorie no drama in Korea can ever come close to king is onother level Lee min ho deserve barks and of best actor for his acting masterpiece

Oh my god...I fel like you read my mind...you are so accurate...I wanted to say the same.....it's so painful that TKEM is from kdrama industry and that is why it is being compared with all this sort of dramas...if it was Hollywood, who will dare compare?.....such a spectacular drama

None of them you mentioned above. Mr. Sunshine is the only masterpiece from her. Her dramas are so popular because she use popular actors and high budgets production for costumes and cinematography. Most of the storylines are just good. Not outstanding. Reply series, Sky Castle, and some other dramas has more better stories.

To me all the dramas are actually good, but I don't like the heirs bcos of the fierce love triangle and I find goblin a bit boring, I really don't enjoyed as people did,but DOTS was sooooo amazing,I love it so much that it became my number 1 best drama then,I rewatch it so many times without getting tired.....then suddenly TKEM came and beat all of them ,it's so intense and mindblogging,so intelligent and greatly directed,most times am always at the edge of chair when watching,it has all the good things I liked in Korean drama,it got my brain working so much....even my families that doesn't like kdrama are so inspired to watch the drama bcos it's a masterpiece.......so now, without being bias, I rate TKEM 10/10.....this is her best drama so far.....and this is the best drama in Korean entertainment even if we don't agree......most people who doesn't really TKEM for its popularity will probably choose other dramas...but the fact remains the fact even if we keep on denying it..... success to all upcoming dramas

Though goblin soothes your eyes and heart with its fascinating story, plot, cast and cinematography, Story wise Descendents of the sun completely stands out! Blooming of love despite the contradicting personalities of the lead actors and they coming in terms with their differencea of opinions, respecting each other's profession and space, the drama had something more than a story PERSPECTIVE! I feel it was also inspiring to a lot of people to perceive their career in medical field as well as army!
