Did You Know?

  • Hanbok is traditional Korean clothing
  • 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.

Thank you, Irene, for this fabulous drawing and a peek into your tradition!
