i need to talk with someone about Shin's outfit in ep 6 when he says goodbye to everyone, omg he looks amazing, i mean he always does but idk there's something about that outfit, sorry if this is weird but I was watching the ep again and i noticed that he looks extra handsome im gonna cry bye
OHHHH yesss I love that outfit too Anon! ^^ Actually, I have a review in the works, as requested by @scarletheartlove, about rating Shin’s outfits (It’s taking some time since I’m also busy and I kinda need to rewatch certain episodes for the outfits lol)!
But I love how they chose an all black outfit for Shin for that scene because it literally represents Shin “embracing” his death. He was so dead set (pun intended) on dying…. he even wore black for his own funeral, lmao. Setting aside all color symbolism, Goblin has definitely set a trend for long coats which is FABULOUS! Gong Yoo + Long Coats = PERFECTION! (He looks so good in turtle necks too… ugh… plus he’s got a tall and lean figure which goes so well with the fashion in Goblin; A+ to the stylists of Goblin! Wardrobe done right!) Plus, with his very simple and black-elegant outfit, there was a lot of emphasis on Shin’s face… his expressions! This way, we were able to put our attention on every movement of his face while looking at Eun-Tak… gazing at her… slightly smiling at her… and thinking that it might be his last time he will see her. He is the master of facial expressions… I swear he breaks my heart every time at this scene… he’s just looking at Eun-Tak with such softness and gentleness even though he didn’t die T.T
Plus I love how his outfit contrasts with the snow, the scenery, the sword, and with Eun-Tak. Eun-Tak’s outfit is fun, youthful, and bright… while his was dark, gloomy, while also being sophisticated/mature. I just love how they put so much emphasis on colors in this drama… have I told you guys before that I FRIGGIN LOVE SYMBOLISMS!!! ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY’RE USED SO THOROUGHLY AND STRATEGICALLY LIKE IN GOBLIN???
And yes… Gong Yoo just looks so handsome in that outfit… T.T he looks good in anything and everything.
