Colours


1. What’s your favourite colour?


OK… I tend to go for pastel tones like salmon pink or buttercup yellow… They usually make me feel calm and relaxed. Really garish colours give me a headache so I normally avoid those like the plague!


 2. Do you often wear clothes in your favourite colour?

I don’t, actually. Like I said, I prefer pastel tones or muted colours to loud ones… But those colours don’t really suit me. Instead I go for dark colours because they match my skin tone, hair and eye colour…


 3. Are there any colours that have a special meaning in your country?

I haven’t thought about that one before… I suppose most colours symbolise the same things in Korea as they do anywhere else… I mean, red usually connotes love, white normally connotes purity… But traditionally you’re not meant to write someone’s name in red pen – it’s bad luck.


 

4. Which colour would you choose to paint the walls of your room?


I’d probably opt for something not too loud or garish… I mean, I heard colours like bright orange and yellow drive you a bit crazy… Blue might make you feel down… So I’d go for something muted like cream or ivory.


 5. What can you learn about a person from the colours they like?

Right… Maybe you could learn about someone’s personality… I mean, some people say that outgoing people are into loud colours like magenta or teal, whereas introverts prefer less intense hues like pastel colours or darker shades


 6. Do you think colours affect our moods?

Erm… Sure… I think it’s scientifically proven that colours generally influence our mood… For example, red encourages your appetite, blue can make you more productive, green can be soothing… It depends on the person, though.



7. What are your country’s colours?


Well… the Korean flag’s white, with blue, red, and flecks of black… White represents peace and purity, blue and red symbolise positive and negative cosmic forces… I’m not sure about the black lines though…



8. Is there a colour you avoid?


Erm… When it comes to buying clothes, I tend to avoid primary colours and go for secondary colours instead because they suit me better… And in terms of room colour, I prefer pastel tones because they’re more relaxing.
