Tracking Color Symbolism In Kdrama: Goblin’s Use Of Red

Red: it’s the color of blood, passion, love, romance. It can also signify danger, rage, war, and violence.

Goblin’s first couple episodes have given red a noticeable prominence, which I haven’t seen in recent kdramas.

It’s the color of the pool of Eun Tak’s mother’s blood that she lies in.

It’s the scarf that Eun Tak dons in nearly every scene.

And then there was that old spinach lady-turned voluptuous young thang.
