After receiving much attention, Kang Sora talked about her 39,000 won dress that she wore to the MAMA.

Appeared as Ahn Young Yi in tvN′s Misaeng, Kang Sora shared about the 39,000 won dress that she wore to the 2014 MAMA on December 3, during the media day event on December 23 at a cafe in Itaewon.

"During MAMA, I wore the dress without knowing its brand. More than following the trend, I usually wear clothes that fit my body type, so for that ceremony, I chose the dress for that reason," said Kang Sora. "I wore the dress while shooting photos for a soju commercial calendar. Before I wore the dress, the staff members on set were indifferent, but once I wore it, they became focused and even took pictures with their phones. I realized, ′This is it.′ I found the dress′ price through the articles."

Regarding the issue, Kang Sora′s agency rep also talked about the situation. "Just like Kang Sora said, the dress was something that she wore at a regular shooting."

"The concept of the commercial was ′Soju that Becomes Gentle,′ so we chose a dress that focused more on healthy beauty. The reaction from the male staff was so good, so we also thought that the dress was pretty. Then we ended up going to MAMA last minute, so she wore that dress. Ahead of the dress fitting for MAMA, we thought about that dress. Since she would be presenting an award, and not receiving one, we decided to go more casual and chose that outfit."

The rep continued, "Kang Sora usually has a hard time finding clothes that fit well with her body type. So she focuses more on what fits her better rather than the price or brand. It was just a simple thought, but she was spotlighted as a celebrity with a right mind. We were a bit caught off guard."

"Kang Sora likes expensive and inexpensive clothes. She has a lot of interest in clothes, so she even pretends to be a university student and buys things off of secondhand sites. Kang Sora finds it fun, thinking it′sa form of acting," said the rep. "Her real life is quite simple, so we were worried that everything was being excessively expressed during MAMA. We were a bit burdened, wondering if we were disappointing the fans."

Regarding Kang Sora′s 1,220,000 won shoes to her 39,000 won dress, the rep answered, "Since the dress was navy, we searched for navy shoes and received them as a sponsor. The dress and the shoes weren′t something we planned on promoting."

During the 2014 MAMA at the AWE in Hong Kong, Kang Sora caught much attention for wearing the ′H′ brand dress worth 39,000 won on during the red carpet event.

On this day, Kang Sora wore a navy dress and matching heels, making her curves show. Her matching navy shoes were revealed to cost 1,220,000 won.

Based on writer Yoon Tae Ho’s webtoon series of the same name, tvN’s Misaeng is a project that depicts the competition and sorrows of the employees at the general trading company, One International. Kang Sora acted as the ‘alpha girl’ female employee who joins the company along with Jang Geu Rae (Im Si Wan), Jang Baek Gi (Kang Ha Neul) and Han Seok Yul (Byun Yo Han).

The 20-episode drama Misaeng ended on December 20 with Jang Geu Rae parting with his colleagues at One International, after failing to switch to a permanent position at the company. Later, he joins the company headed by Oh Sang Shik (Lee Sung Min), Kim Dong Shik (Kim Dae Myung) and Kim Boo Ryun (Kim Jong Soo), marking a new beginning.
