Number One Rule When in Korea: Wear Hanbok!
18 Apr 2018INSPIRATIONBY SweetEscape

There is perhaps no other artifact that captures the richness of Korean cultural heritage as well as hanbok. The traditional attire's origins can be traced back to the ethnic origins of the Korean people - who supposedly began to wear a modern form of hanbok as early as the fourth century B.C. Pretty remarkable, right? What's more remarkable is the fact that It is the hanbok design has largely remained intact for thousands of years. Although popularly worn today on special occasions such as weddings and birthdays, there is renewed interest among modern Koreans in wearing hanbok as everyday wear, just as their ancestors once did.

Therefore, it goes without saying that when in Korea, do as the Koreans do. Whether with your nearest and dearest or alone, put your hanbok on! Check out our some of the looks you could try out when roaming around the scenic streets of Seoul!
