Hanbok is the wonderful traditional dress of Koreans. It is usually designed with simple lines, bright colors, without any pockets. Hanbok is usually worn during semi-formal and formal events or celebrations and festivals. Hanbok is actually a representation of the Korean heritage as the tradition of wearing hanbok has been bequeathed from time to time.
I have an unforgettable moment during my last trip to Seoul, I visit a Studio in Insadong to wear their hanbok and take some photos. It was a really exciting experience but I couldn’t wear that hanbok out in the streets of Seoul. That hanbok can only be worn in the studio. I really wanted to wear it while traveling to the palaces, like some other girls I noticed in Gyeongbukgong Palace.
When I checked a website at http://english.visitkorea.or.kr there are some rentals that provides a special outdoor hanbok experience in Seoul. So I was no longer restricted within the studio in order to take photos with a hanbok . With a hanbok’s outdoor experience, the whole Seoul is my studio! I was totally free to take pictures a hanbok in most of Seoul’s palaces as well as in other popular landmarks, giving me a better sensation of the Korean culture.
