In his role as Ryan Gold on the tvN drama "Her Private Life" Kim Jae-wook has had to embrace a wildly different fashion style than he did for his previous drama, "The Guest - Drama". Here, Kim Jae-wook has to seem a little crazy, as befits the drama's premise of crazy romance, but he must nonetheless remain a convincing foil to Park Min-young's character Deok-mi who is, privately, a dedicated otaku.
This is expressed with Ryan Gold's predictable yet oddly varied pattern of V-neck shirts paired with a matching suit. The form of Ryan Gold's clothes are always the same, yet the color mix changes constantly, usually to suit the mood of the scene. Darker colors are used for serious moments while lighter ones are used for the more playful ones.
Another means of telling the difference between scenes is how loosely or tightly the suit is being worn. The pink suit in particular adeptly obscures how much bare skin is showing, allowing Ryan Gold to seem just a tad more dignified even in weaker moments. Lighter colors in general improve this contrast- which is why even the darker suits almost always have a lighter colored V-neck underneath.
