Dress him up as Kim Shin for V-Day.

If fashion is one of the things that draw you in when it comes to watching a TV series, then don't think twice and stream the K-Drama Goblin, which stars Train to Busan's Gong Yoo as Kim Shin, an immortal Korean deity (aka Goblin) who falls in love with high schooler JiEun-Tak (Kim Go-Eun). Completing the cast is Lee Dong Wook, a handsomer-than-usual Grim Reaper, Yook Sung-Jae as Deok Hwa, Kim Shin's amusing and bratty conglomerate heir nephew, and Yoo In-Na as Kim Sun, an exceptionally pretty chicken restaurant owner.

Though the story, cinematography, musical score, and overall aesthetic of the show are enough reasons to watch it, the fashion in this series, particularly the menswear, knocks it out of the park. It will literally leave you wanting to trade lives with Eun Tak any day of a hectic work week, or at the very least have you daydreaming about your boyfriend dressing like Kim Shin, the Grim Reaper, or Deok Hwa. That said, in lieu of V-Day, we came up with some wearable outfit ideas for your beau inspired by the the ultra chic men of Goblin.

Kim Shin: Crisp and Tough

The key to dressing like Kim Shin, sans the winter coats, is to pay attention to shoulder tailoring and tapered trouser fit. Also, he loves a great knit sweater.

Casual:

Pick a striking graphic sweater and pair it with cigarette trousers and a nice pair of Chelsea boots to emulate Gong Yu's character.

Dressy:

Let's just say you're going on a date somewhere chilly. Let your beau throw on a boxy yet sleek camel coat, a turtle neck, a pair of trousers, and brown brogues. Remember, Kim Shin is a fan of earth tones.

Grim Reaper: Loungy and Sophisticated

Lee Dong Wook's character sort of has two polarizing styles on the show. When at work, he's normally found in a monochromatic slim suit. His off-duty looks, however, are a lot more relaxed, usually oversized and loose in fit.

Casual: 

Opt for a layered look that's slightly unkept and oversized. The key is to pick loose trousers that graze the ankles to keep the overall silhouette boxy.

Dressy:

The Grim Reaper loves a clean, slim, and classic suit that's perfect for an exquisite night out. Pick a straight narrow tie, pointed-toe lace-up shoes, and a tie clip or lapel pin to complete the look.

Deok Hwa: Experimental and Fun

For a conglomerate heir, Deok Hwa's style is racy and unconventional, and features an eclectic mix of prints and textures (he once wore a multicolored fur coat). Let these looks be your "wild cards" for a date night.

Casual:

The character loves graphic and loud sweaters, but opt for a fun print shirt (due to our weather conditions), and pair with tapered and slim trousers, plus a jacket and a pair of sneakers.

A checkered suit in gray isn't flashy enough for Deok Hwa's taste, so why not opt for a yellow turtle neck underneath and finish it off with cool patterned sole derbies.
