The star of the month Park Bo Young is making headlines again alongside her hit drama Strong Woman Do Bong Soon for doing this shocking thing.
Park Bo Young was revealed to have rejected luxury brand clothes sponsorships for her character for a very nice thoughtful professional reason.
Park Bo Young has just gained my respect even more, rumors were hovering around saying that she is rejecting sponsorship deals of clothes.
Park Bo Young’s character Bong Soon has a very unique fashion sense and many fans have been falling in love with her cute outfits, turns out she chose them herself.

Her agency confirmed this saying:
“Before filming of ‘Strong Woman Do Bong Soon’ began, Park Bo Young went to Busan’s international market and got a hold of many outfits. All the clothes were then reformed to match Park Bo Young’s body, and the stylists mixed and matched their own items with the outfits. Hence, Do Bong Soon’s unique style was created.”
Because Park Bo Young wanted to stay true to her character background, she turned down luxury brand deals and I loved that she did so.
Many kdrama fans often comment on how luxurious the main female lead usually dress even when she’s “supposedly” poor and how expensive the outfits female leads wear and how much they change outfits which doesn’t resonate well with the female lead poor background.
With Park Bo Young’s character fashion sense you can clearly tell that her outfits are common and from the market, Koreans are known for having a unique amazing fashion sense, and having watched so many kdramas I can easily tell good quality and luxury brands from regular market outfits.
I like her dedication; she could’ve easily made more money if she had agreed to do so, but she ended up refusing, she didn’t want to compromise the character originality for the sake of more dollars and not many female stars do that.
I have even noticed that she often repeats clothes she has worn in previous episodes, I love that, I love how dedicated she is, you can easily relate to her, not everyone can wear luxury brands, and it would make no sense if she would have worn them because her character is supposed to come from middle class family.
So what do you think of what Park Bo Young did? Do you think she made the right decision when she rejected those luxury brand deals?
