The paper analyses the portrayal of Ming envoys in South Korean dramas. The four series, i.e. Wang-i doen namja, Baegir-ui Nanggunnim, Wang-ui Eolgul and Yeon-mo are taken under consideration. Conducted analysis shows that the presented image is often incorrect in terms of hairstyles or clothing, and envoys show questionable etiquette. Moreover, the quality of the used Chinese emissaries costumes seems to be lower than the Korean characters. Image is used as a tool to differentiate Chinese and Koreans. Furthermore, it is a part of a broader picture of flared-up discussion on what Koreans should wear and who can wear Korean clothes.
