On February 4th, MBC’s Director of Art Bong Hyeon Sook revealed, “Kim Soo Hyun’s ‘gonryongpo’ costume was created by hand. Embroidering it alone took one month.” Reportedly, the cost of Kim Soo Hyun’s costume was 1.5 million won (~ $1,348.00 USD).
The scarlet coloring of the King’s everyday outfit combined with the knowledge that it was hand-embroidered certainly gives Kim Soo Hyun an extra sheen of majesty.
The actor has been gaining much popularity as the firm young king who remains loyal to the memory of his childhood love. ‘The Moon that Embraces the Sun’ also made headlines recently after it neared the 40% viewership rating with its latest episode.
