Park Bo Gum carries traditional Korean outfit best, says costume designer [PHOTOS]

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds airs every Mondays and Tuesdays at 10 p.m. KST on KBS TV.

Hanbok designer Lee Jin Hee could not stop gushing about her latest muse from the period drama, Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. The fabricator is seemingly awestruck by Park Bo Gum's aura and the poise he reflects in the traditional Korean dress. The 23-year-old apparently plays the 19th century Crown Prince and is seen donning the vibrant coloured ethnic attire.

Through her social media account, the dress designer relayed: "I worked on a lot of projects, and I've met a lot of actors. There have been many actors who have great bodies and a great figure for clothes, but I think this is a first for an actor who can perfectly portray the feeling and message that I intended, as if he is one with the clothes."

She states that Bo Gum has a natural talent which enhances his ability to complement various attires. Jin Hee also uploaded a series of Bo Gum's pictures wearing Hanbok on her social media and captioned it: "Crown Prince Bo Gum never fails to surprise me".

"These are clothes with which I thought a lot about the presence and class. [Park Bo Gum] wore the clothes almost exactly the way I had first imagined," she further wrote.

Jin Hee, who is a professional period dressing designer, previously revealed that a Hanbok takes at least 4-months to get ready. She told Soompi: "Making a single hanbok costume takes about four months to complete. A lot of care goes into making an outfit that matches an actor's image."

Talk about her favorite actor yet again, the costume designer added: "Park Bo Gum fundamentally really liked the outfits that I designed. When I would be on set, he'd often grab my hand and tell me, 'The outfits are so beautiful.'"
