Jimin, the well-known member of the sensational K-pop group BTS, sent a heartfelt and warm congratulatory message to Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling for gifting him a cherished cultural artifact – Ken’s guitar from the renowned movie Barbie – as an expression of his sincere appreciation.
Notably, the congratulatory message was in response to Ryan Gosling’s recent project, wherein the actor, through an Instagram post, acknowledged the striking resemblance between Jimin’s outfit in the “Permission To Dance” music video and his own Ken outfit in the upcoming Barbie movie.
Ryan playfully praised Jimin for wearing the outfit first and added that he undoubtedly pulled off the look better. He humorously mentioned an unspoken “Ken code” that required him to offer Jimin his most prized possession – the black acoustic guitar used in the movie scene where animated doll Ken showcased his musical talent by performing a cover of the song “Push” by Matchbox Twenty, which was sung by Ryan Gosling himself.
In response to Ryan’s heartfelt gesture, Jimin conveyed his appreciation in a heartfelt message: “Hi Ryan and hi Ken, it’s Jimin. Congrats on your big release. My fans are excited to see your video, so thank you so much. I could see that you look great in my outfit. Thank you for this guitar. I really love it and I look forward to watching Barbie. Go, Barbie!”
The guitar holds sentimental value as it played a significant role in the movie, where Ken and Barbie ventured into the real world and realized the need for more understated outfits. Jimin’s enthusiasm for the upcoming Barbie movie has piqued fans’ curiosity, and they eagerly await his reaction to the film.
This heartwarming exchange between BTS’s Jimin and Hollywood star Ryan Gosling has not only deepened their friendship but also captured the attention of fans worldwide. The generous gift of Ken’s guitar symbolizes the cultural impact and connection between artists across different entertainment domains, further enhancing the anticipation for the highly awaited Barbie movie.
