If you’re aware of Kim Tae Hee’s background, then it comes as no surprise that she was involved in the design of her dress. As Soompi notes, the actress has a degree in Fashion Design from Seoul National University.
“Based on Kim Tae Hee’s personal ideas, the stylist bought the fabrics and tailored the dress herself,” an insider source revealed about the process involved in the wedding dress’s design. “It’s not from an expensive brand.”
According to Koreaboo, another insider source had this to say about her choice to wear a knee-length dress and it reveals a lot about the character of the popular Korean actress.
“She didn’t want to go for an outlandish look. She chose to wear a mini-dress with simple design that anyone could wear. She did this out of the fact she didn’t want to wear something ostentatious and expensive just because it was celebrity wedding. She felt that the entire country was going through a tough time and she didn’t want the public to feel like they lived in a different world.”
