Irene and her family celebrate by wearing traditional, colorful clothing called “Hanbok.”
Did You Know?

- Hanbok has been a great part of Korean culture throughout history.
- The oldest form of Hanbok can be seen in tomb mural paintings from the Goguryeo Kingdom (37 B.C.-668 A.D.).
Korea had two kinds of clothing tradition. The rulers and noblemen usually wore clothing of different kinds of foreign styles. But subjects continued to use a distinct style of indigenous clothing that today is known as Hanbok.
