Jung Il Woo currently stars in the historical supernatural comedy The Night Watchman’s Journal, and in this week’s past episode, he donned a lovely pink floral hanbok. It’s a beautiful design that reflects the character of Lee Rin / Prince Wolgang so perfectly: carefree and delicate. And confident – Jung rocks the pink shade well.
But did you know that his mother designed it herself?!
Jung Il Woo’s mother is the famed Shim Youn Ok, who was the chief of the Textiles Research Lab at Korea University. She’s a renowned Korean culture expert, and her deftness with the loom is no joke. She gladly offered her unique designs to be used for the costumes in the drama. Jung paid a surprise visit to her studio one day and saw her working hard at his floral hanbok. He even took a whack at the loom himself!
The beautiful hanbok appears in episodes four and five of The Night Watchman’s Journal. I have to admit that costume was quite memorable, and now it is more special knowing that it was specially crafted by a mother for her son.
Jung Il-woo is appearing in MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘The Night Watchman’ as a prince ‘Irin’ who is a fashion leader of Joseon era. To our surprise, his Hanbok (Korean traditional costume) was designed by his mother.
The Hanbok with the beautiful colors and flower patterns that Jung Il-woo wore in the drama was made by his mother Shim Youn-ok, an authority of fabrics of the nation. She made it with her utmost sincerity.
Shim Youn-ok is carefully working on fabrics.
When Shim Youn-ok saw his son worrying about hanbok he would wear in the drama, she gladly told him that she would give fabrics to make Hanbok for him.
Meanwhile, Jung Il-woo also visited his mother when he heard that she was working on fabrics in a school in Buyeo.

Jung Il-woo appeared in a beautiful red Dopo (Korean full-dress attire) which was made of his mother’s fabrics in the 4th and 5th episodes. People were mesmerized by the beautiful colors.
Meanwhile, prince ‘Irin’ was imprisoned by prince ‘Kisan’ because of Sadam’s evil tricks. Viewers are now wondering how the relationship between brother prince ‘Irin’ and ‘Kisan’ will go after this incident. MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama ‘The Night Watchman’ will air its 6th episode at 10:00 p.m. on August 19.
