Getting free luxury clothing from a big-name company would be a dream for anyone.
But not for "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon" star Park Bo Young.
Among the many positive things about the hit new K-drama, a lot of attention was given to Do Bong Soon's attire, something that Park Bo Young's agency is well aware of.
For those who are unaware, the character of Do Bong Soon usually wears many layers of colourful and cute clothing. Since she is a character who is required to do many stunts, Park Bo Young and the production crew decided that Do Bong Soon should wear pants instead of skirts. In order to create Do Bong Soon's unique style, Park Bo Young went shopping at Busan's international market and the production crew then mixed and matched their own items afterwards.
With the massive popularity that the K-drama is receiving, many luxury clothing brands have offered to sponsor the show by having the character of Bo Bong Soon wear their clothes.
While saying yes would be a no-brainer for most people, Park Bo Young and the production crew have actually been turning down all these luxury clothing brand sponsor requests because they all want to stay true to Do Bong Soon's personality and charm.
Hats off to Park Bo Young for staying true to her character, and we're absolutely loving "Strong Woman Do Bong Soon!"
