Wearing Hanbok for the first time

Spread the love

Yeah right this is my first time to wear the traditional clothes of Korean women here in Korea, called Hanbok which is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means “Korean clothing”, hanbok today often refers specifically to hanbok of Joseon Dynasty and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. Modern hanbok does not exactly follow the actual style as worn in Joseon dynasty since it went through some major changes during the 20th century for practical reasons.

I have experienced to wear this during the Lotus Lantern festival where one of the lady in the booth approached me if I want to try it. This is my new profile photo in facebook so when my sister saw it today she emailed me that I already look like a Korean, I replied back “just in clothes“.
