Korean Traditional Dress Experience

Staying long or dropping by in Seoul South Korea? Better try the traditional dress experience by Seoul Culture and Tourist Center for free!

Hanbok or Choson-ot is the traditional Korean dress. Throughout history Korea had a dual clothing tradition, in which rulers and aristocrats adopted kinds of mixed foreign influenced indigenous styles, while the commoners continued to use a distinct style of indigenous clothing that today is known as Hanbok. -Wikipedia.

Day before Sunday, a friend invited us to try Hanbok which is just near the location of Myeong-Dong Catholic Church.

Friend: Come with us, we know a place where we can try Hanbok
Us: (with curious faces) How much?
Friend: It's free!
The storm stopped, a rainbow appeared beneath the blue sky, birds sang in celebration, angels danced, and the sun shined like he will never run out of hydrogen.

After the mass, armed with a camera, knowing that our Korean Won wont be seeing sunshine that day and a smile on our face, we went.
