Happy Friday ladies! 😀
We had a long weekend here in Malaysia last week thanks to Labour Day, so I took advantage of it by going to Seoul 😀 It was just a quick trip and it was really quite tiring because I walked so much, but it was fun.
Don’t I look quite quite Korean here? 😛 I didn’t pay to wear the Hanbok – its too expensive. But in the grounds of the Gyeongbokgung Palace were these cut-outs that you can stick your face into so yeah. Inexpensive way to see how you’d look wearing the Hanbok! 😀
Traditional Hanbok in a store window at Insadong
Here are some beautiful Hanbok (Korean traditional dress) that I saw in a window on my way to Insadong. Aren’t they beautiful? I was told that in Korea, its now strictly kept for formal functions like weddings, and many people may not own one because its very expensive. So people sometimes rent them if they need a Hanbok.
I’ve got some more photos below if you are interested. Its quite a picture heavy post so do be warned!
