Hanbok (South Korea) or Joseon-ot (North Korea) is the traditional Korean dress. It is often characterized by vibrant colors and simple lines without pockets. Although the term literally means "Korean clothing", hanbok today often refers specifically to clothing of the Joseon period and is worn as semi-formal or formal wear during traditional festivals and celebrations. - From Wikipedia
One of the things I thought would be fun to do while in Korea was to try wearing Hanbok. I am not into dresses too much but after watching this video, it looked like it would be a fun new experience. Plus my mom is a collector of photos taken of her family. So we thought it would be a great gift to give her some professional photos of us while we were in Korea.
Our original idea was to visit the same studio as the girls in the YouTube video. But in my planning, which started MONTHS before we left, I didn't verify a few things. When I researched the studio it was open and located in Insadong. We had planned on doing some exploring at Insadong our first day. Well when we arrived, the studio in Insadong was closed for renovations! Damn!
