1. What is a Hanbok?

A Hanbok is a traditional South Korean dress which can be formal or semi-formal, used during traditional events such as festivals and ceremonies. A fun fact is that “Hanbok” literally means Korean clothing but it usually refers to the clothing from the Joseon period. Since 1996, there is even an official “Hanbok Day” when locals are encouraged to wear their traditional clothing.

This traditional Korean dress for women consists of two pieces:

  • a high-waist skirt called chima
  • a jacket called jeogori

Of course, men can wear a hanbok too. However, theirs looks slightly different and it consists of:

  • loose-fitting trousers called baji
  • a jacket called jeogori

If you’re not sure whether or not to rent a hanbok in Seoul, go for it! You’ll see many locals wearing it all over the city. While many of them are hiring professional photographers to take their photos, most of them are just doing it for fun and out of respect for their traditions.Locals are happy when they see foreigners interested in their culture!

3. How much does it cost to rent a hanbok in Seoul?

Depending on where you’re renting your traditional Korean dress, the prices may vary a bit. If you’re choosing a rental shop on a main street, full of tourists, it will be a bit more expensive. If you’re choosing a shop in a less touristy area, it will be cheaper.
