Traditional Korean Clothing

annyeong ^^

well, i thought about my blog yesterday,
and i found that my blog only gave information about kpop ==a
actually my blog goal is to make you know all about korea, not only kpop
so i wanna post something new ! Traditional Korean Clothing ! (sorry, this posting is only about their official/court clothing, i'll post about the rest soon)


During the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910), symbols representing the wearer's rank began appearing on the hem of clothes. A dragon represented an empress and a phoenix represented a queen. Princesses and royal concubines wore floral patterns. High ranking court officials wore clouds and cranes. The color gold was also reserved for royalty throughout much of Korea's history. People of higher statuses wore much more ornate and expensive clothes than the commoners did.


Princesses wore this ritual attire during the Koryo (918-1392) and Chosun (1392-1910) Dynasties. The extreme cost of making a hwalot forced the common people to use nok wonsam instead. waw~ i wanna try to wear it xD


During the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910), royalty, high-ranking court ladies, and noble women wore a wonsam, a ceremonial topcoat. The color and decorations around the chest, shoulders, and back represent the rank of the wearer.

these are some types of wonsam:

hwang wonsam

worn by empress (hwang means gold)
woah~ it's so shining, *_*

hong wonsam

worn by queen (hong means red)
it's mine ! xD whaaha~ i love this one :D

nok wonsam

worn by princesses and was also used by commoners in marriage ceremonies (nok means green)

Kaesong wonsam

worn by nobility in the Kaesong region
this is the simplest i think :D


dangui represented minor ceremonial clothes for the queen, princess, or wife of a high ranking government official. Among the noble class, wives wore it for major ceremonies. Royal families had gold trim, while others had plain ones.

Myonbok and Cheokui (King's and Queen's Ceremonial Clothes)

Together, the with myonryugwan (headdress) and gonbok (clothes) comprised the myonbok outfit, the king's religious and formal ceremonial clothes during the Koryo (918-1392) and Chosun (1392-1910) Dynasties. The queen's outfit, Cheokui, originated from the Koryo Dynasty (918-1392). The design is based on a present from China's Empress Hoyja (Ming Dynasty).


The ch'eollik was worn by the king and various civil and military officials during the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910). Military ?! i think this is the feminine one =__=a


The king wore the hwangp'o for daily clothes during the late Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910). waw~ love this one :D


aengsam ss formal clothing during the national government exam and governmental ceremonies for student ! wah~ well, i guess it will good on me :p xD
