REPLY 1988 DOLLS

Following previous Reply tradition, the dolls are everywhere! They also keep changing what they are doing…

So who is moving them? Shin PD? *hahahaha*

If we go by the color theory and the physical looks on the dolls:

Blue doll is Junghwan.
Green doll is Taek.
Yellow doll is Deoksun.
Red doll is Sunwoo.
Pink doll is Dongryong,
darker than the rest with metal framed glasses.
Purple doll is Bora.

Episode 4

DollsDS_EP4

The blue doll looks ahead. Green doll has turned his head to look at the yellow doll.
But the yellow doll is smiling at the red doll, who also looks ahead.
The pink doll just laughs to himself.

Junghwan notices that Sunwoo is coming by often to look for Deoksun.
This is a hint for the future events, because at this point of time we have yet to see Taek being ‘ínterested’ in Deoksun yet.

Episode 8 Title Card

Episode 17

The dolls make a final appearance in Episode 17.

All the dolls are now out of Deoksun’s desk, and on the top the family TV.

The red and purple dolls are far apart from each other.

And the rest of the dolls stand apart from each other, the pink and yellow dolls are side by side.
The green doll still looks to the yellow one as it stood further away…

By this episode, Taek had made himself unavailable to Deoksun as he focused all his time and energy in Baduk. The rest were all concentrating on their final year in high school; and Bora had broken up with Sunwoo.

There are some other strange unexplained scenes with dolls:
There is a yellow, green and red doll in Taek’s room. (perhaps signifying the closeness of Deoksun,Sunwoo and Taek.We will explore this further in the Color theory).
Why are there the unclothed dolls at the deokkbokki place?
Will a teacher place a doll at their work desk?
