Ryan Gosling is sending BTS’ Jimin a special Ken guitar from the “Barbie” movie.
He starts by acknowledging that his character Ken wears the same cowboy outfit as Jimin in BTS’ music video for “Permission to Dance.”
“I have to give it to you, you wore it first. You definitely wore it best,” Gosling declares.
He then goes on to explain that there is an “unspoken Ken code” in regard to copying someone else’s style.
“If you bite another Ken’s style, you have to give them your most prized possession,” the actor says.
Holding up Ken’s guitar as a “humble offering,” Gosling notes that Ken doesn’t even play guitar, so “it would be much better” in Jimin’s hands.
