It is a portrait depicting the officials' Dallyeong attire of Dangsang-gwan of the late 18th century, and it can be known that it is a picture drawn at age 64 in 1799 and recorded at age 75 in 1810 because it is written on the top right of the screen, "Son Am 64 years, drawn at Sim Gi's Seshimjae in lunar calendar August of Gimi year. Written personally at the age of 75 in Gyeongoh year." The tip of the Samo is high, and there is a pattern on the horn on each side. The Dallyeong is a dark green with a cloud pattern, and there is a 'Ssanghak (double crane) Hyungbae' on the chest, which symbolizes the civil official Dangsang-gwan. The double cranes of the Hyungbae are usually holding a Youngji mushroom in their mouths, but in the portrait of Hong Myeong-ho, they can be seen holding a peach twig in their mouths. The sleeve is wide, and the side hem armpit garment is fixed on the back. An indigo Jikryeong can be seen through the side openings of the Dallyeong. He is wearing a Seodae for 1st rank officials on the waist, and black shoes.
