Bong Tae Gyu nilait sa suot
Marami pa ring konserbatibo o pagiging taboo sa South Korea pagdating sa ilang bagay at paniniwala.
Katulad na lang nang natatanggap na kritisismo ni Bong Tae Gyu. Umani ito ng mga negative comment dahil sa suot niya nang umattend ng press conference ng bago niyang drama.
Isyu pa rin sa South Korea ang gender expectation pagdating sa sinusuot nilang damit. Mala-school uniform inspired ang napili nitong isuot sa presscon ng drama nila na “The Penthouse” .Long blazer at skirts ang suot niya.
Sinagot nito ang isang artikulong lumabas na diumano’y nag-crossed line na ang actor sa outfit nito.
Sa headline, nakasaad na, “Bong Tae Gyu, fashion that crosses lines.”
Matapang niya itong sinagot. Ayon sa actor na nanalo na ng iba’t-ibang acting awards, “I don’t really think that I crossed a line… It was very comfortable. I wonder how nice it would have been if I could’ve worn it from the start? At least now I understand how practical skirts can be. Moreover, it looked really cool when I styled it up. Maybe it was because I was restricted for so long to the item called “pants,” but a skirt was surprisingly cool and fresh. I was surprised by how stimulating it felt, how much of a universe opened up, when this restriction disappeared.
“In the past, there was talk about letting female students choose to wear shorts or long pants instead of skirts so they could have more free choice in their school uniforms. Nowadays, most schools don’t obsess over making all female students wear skirts. When Si Ha [his son] is old enough to wear a school uniform, I wonder what it would be like if he had a skirt as one of his options. A child could learn something really important just from the idea that a skirt is something we can choose whether or not to wear. I might have learned this just now, but I wish Si Ha will learn this a little sooner. That men can wear skirts, and that they look really cool doing so.”
