It’s not even springtime when the flowers bloom, but the flowers of Korean traditional clothes are blooming in downtown Seoul. Hanbok, which was hard to see even during the holidays, has been a hot trend in the village of Hanok in Jeonju, and the traditional streets of Seoul have been well colored. Just looking at the colorful hanbok in every alley of the city, where tradition and culture are imbued, makes people excited. From Gyeongbokgung Palace to Changdeokgung Palace to Anguk-dong and Bukchon Hanok Village, the wind of hanbok is welcoming and beautiful.
Why don’t we take a picture wearing a beautiful hanbok at Gyeongbokgung Palace?
The experience of hanbok, which started to blow gradually after the palace’s “Free entrance when wearing Hanbok” in 2013, has caused an explosive reaction since last winter in 2016. As the Cultural Heritage Administration expanded “free entry of hanbok” to four palaces, Jongmyo Shrine and the Joseon Royal Tomb all year round in 2013, the number of hanbok experience points around the four palaces increased significantly, and the SNS fever took place. Now it is easy to see visitors wearing Hanbok at Gyeongbokgung Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village on weekends and weekdays. In particular, it has become the best trend to take family photos in ancient palaces in line with parents on the occasion of Parents’ Day in the spring of 2016.
Book your Hanbok Photoshoot in Gyeongbokgung Palace
As you walk past Gyeongbokgung Palace, you can often see women wearing beautiful hanbok that looks like they just popped out of a historical Korean drama series. Hanbok’s charm is that it makes you feel more feminine and the atmosphere is more refined. If you take a picture at an ancient palace wearing Hanbok, you can understand why the women wearing Hanbok gather in the ancient palace. This is because the picture of hanbok taken in the background of Gyeonghoeru rather than the picture of hanbok taken against the background of the Eiffel Tower is harmonious and beautiful enough to be called a “Once in a lifetime picture.”
Wearing hanbok and going to the ancient palace, foreign tourists lined up to take pictures to make them feel like they have become Hallyu stars. It is fun and rewarding to take a picture of our memories at the palace with friends and to show foreigners the beauty of our hanbok. The craze for hanbok among young people is bringing about a change in hanbok fashion, giving rise to other expectations. This is because it improves the inconvenience of traditional Korean clothes, and there is a possibility of reinterpretation and development with comfortable and fashionable hanboks.
