Moth ID please

I found this moth in Seoul, Korea while traveling and thought that its comb-like antena would be helpful for ID, but I could not find any moth like it. Perhaps it is because I don't know well on how to identify moths, but it would be very helpful if someone can help identify it for me. Thank you .

    i'm young and has just found about this forum but I agree with fascinated in that it is a gypsy moth they're a rare and great find they're generally a pest in Europe but who cares they also use to be native to the UK but now are a rare vagrant/Migrant sadl. I've just got a moth trap and very intrested in moths so I've got a bit of knowledge but I've just got it so I'm still learning!!!!
