On July 19, American actor Ryan Gosling posted a video message for BTS’s Jimin. He shared it on the Twitter page of his latest film Barbie.

“Hi Jimin, it’s Ryan Gosling here. I notice that your ‘Permission to Dance’ outfit is the same as my Ken outfit in the upcoming movie Barbie. I have to give it to you—you wore it first. You definitely wore it best.”

Gosling didn’t just compliment Jimin. He also followed a unique Ken rule to show his admiration for Jimin‘s fashion. He presented a prop from the movie, a black and white guitar labeled “Ken.” It also serves as an accessory to Ken’s iconic outfits.

“There’s an unspoken Ken code that if you bite another Ken’s style, you have to give them your most prized possession,” the 42-year-old actor explained. “I hope you’ll accept Ken’s guitar as my humble offering. Besides, Ken doesn’t really play anyway, so it’ll be much better in your hands.”

The outfit in question was a black Western-style shirt Jimin wore in the “Permission to Dance” MV. It had intricate embroidery and white tassels, and the South Korean superstar paired it with black jeans. Gosling’s Barbie movie character accessorized it with a pink bandana and a white cowboy hat. The video was captioned, “Had to give Jimin this [guitar emoji] for his KEN-RGY!”

Gosling didn’t identify the outfit in his message, but it appears to be from H Bar C Ranchwear. This New York-based brand, established in 1897, has provided clothing for numerous Western films. It has dressed stars like Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, John Wayne, Elvis Presley, and John Travolta.

Jimin loves Ryan Gosling’s work

Fans adored Gosling’s playful video. They speculated that Jimin would be delighted with the gift. After all, he’s a massive fan of The Notebook, a classic film starring Gosling. Jimin has mentioned that he has watched it at least seven times.

Will we see Jimin posing with the guitar or playing a song from FACE with it? We’ll have to wait and see. We hope he will! — K-Pop News Writer
