THE COLOR THEORIES : PART 3

BLUE

Even though Sunwoo made a plane, but ultimately it is a symbol for Junghwan, who became a fighter pilot.
A blue plane appears in 3 different scenes.

Junghwan lived in a big house with a big blue gate. He likes to carry blue umbrellas.
He dresses alot in blue when he is not in dark greys or black ( Please see the White-Black, Baduk Color Theory ).
Even the comb and hairbrush he owned is blue, and specially framed in the mirror.

ORANGE

Shall we descend further into madness and add yet another color to these?

ENTER: ORANGE!

Orange seems to be the signal for help.

In Ep3, Kim appa and Sung appa are troubled by money matters and how to help others. Kim appa was willing to be conned by his friend who was still deep in poverty, and Sung appa barely have money, but he still bought the gum from the old granny.

Hence Dongryong = MVP = BEST HELP EVER ( not just to Taek but Lee Woo Jung too ) = Orange

Orange is not always a person. It can be a tool, a useful thing.

In Ep6, the payphone that Taek calls Deoksun is Orange, so is the phone Dongryong called for Junghwan for help in Ep10.

Before you say all phones are Orange, the payphone is Ep3 used by the teacher to call Deoksun’s mum, is Brown.

Notice how Dongryong was the one who started the “sob-story for pizza” game?
This made Sunwoo tell the gang that he had a one-sided love for 2 years, and kick-started the real hubby hunt.

Ep17: Love triangle at work Yellow – Blue Backgrounds, with Green shades.
As if that is not obvious enough, Dongryong even repeats the same colors for his outfit!

SECONDARY COLOR THEORIES

As if things are not complicated enough, there seem to be 3 more different sets of colors theory, operating at another level.

RAINBOW STRIPES

Sunwoo and Bora are seems to be related to rainbows as well. ( cr: kentang )

Episode 20

Rainbows also signifies sunshine after the rain, because their relationship was full of ups and downs.

There seems to be also another theory that has to do with Reply OTPs turning RED-BLACK-GOLD at the end. ( cr. shared by aoikarin )

Deoksun was supposed to carry the picket sign for Madagascar, but she was changed to Uganda later on.

WE HOPE YOU HAVE ENJOYED READING THIS.

Do you think we have broken the code for the color theory?

No matter what, we are just amazed at how Writer Lee Woo Jung and Shin PD have planned and executed all these together with all the incredible production crew.

Hope you will have fun when you rewatch again!
There are so many more scenes that we can’t list them all here.

So have fun seeing the drama again in a new colorful way!
