THE COLOR THEORIES : PART 2
You made it to Page 2! Thank you for reading on…
We promise we will try to keep things as logical as possible.
If only Reply 1988 was straightforward like Power Rangers!
Its almost impossible to guess anyone’s ‘color’ by their clothing, since everyone wears more than one color throughout the episodes. Especially Dongryong, who’s neck sleeves are the color of the rainbow.
( photo cr: found on google – btw we don’t actually agree with this joke meme )
The only person who’s color is straightforward is Bora. Everyone agrees that her color is purple, lilac…
She had a red walkman, and later even uses red scarf and coat.
Sunwoo is a guy, so his room cannot be full of red items.
He also can’t be dressed in red often either.
How do production sneak in his moments of red?
The colors closest to Sunwoo’s heart – Bora and Taek – hence the purple and green pens in his coat pocket.
Green is the glue that holds everyone together.
Even the parents commented in Ep18 how their busy children will always gather for Taek’s birthday every year without fail.
Ep12, Deoksun glues the run in her stocking.
Ep14, Sunwoo glues the frame of the plane he is building.
Ep17, Choi appa sticks the news cuttings of Taek into a book that he has been collecting.
All these 3 people are the nearest and dearest to Taek.
The phone in Taek’s room may not be green, but the phone in Choi appa’s store is.
Our Ssangmun-dong Sunny, she is as warm and bright as the sun!
For the starting episodes, Deoksun often wears yellow. But this color is not just restricted to her, because we see Bora in yellow as well. Hence the Sung family is likely to be represented by yellow. Even their house phone is yellow.
