Cute Pink Hanbok 한복 ~ Korean Traditional Dresss

Hullo sweeties, doing fine?
While I am not...still worrying my thumb TT_TT, I got an antibiotic allergy back then, and the rash is just everywhere, lips, cheeks, ear, and it was so itchy >.< I'm still recovering myself, drinking likely 4-5 kinds of drugs, and I hate the doctors, changed to new doc (which I think better), while it's not! the doc gave me Sodium Chloride to sterilized my infection but I was allergic too... gyaaah-hate hate, I got allergy to most of things-But well, nvm then. ^_^

I got bored to post some beauty review for now. So I think I'd better post something more 'traditional'. I bet you already knew about hanbok, korean tradional dress. It's so beautiful, the wide skirt waving beautifully as the wearer moves <3

Just bought a cute pinky hanbok 한복 yesterday. At first I was thinking of wearing it TODAY for my brother in law's paebaek day! I was supposed to attend his paebaek ceremony but I couldn't (cuz of my allergy) *sob. I took photographs of the hanbok too, but without me wearing it! (I feel ugly rite now TT^TT ) later, I'll be wearing it October.



This is my new hanbok, with a  beautiful flowery pattern printed on it (cherry blossom, I think), it's made from polyester, silk, and cotton fabric. Practically, there is a lot of way to decorate the fabric, It could be printed, embroidered, or decorated by attaching other fabric or flowery pattern lace.

Chima-lower outer dress

My Jeogori ^^


Hanbok for women is consist of two pieces of cloth, the upper pieces is called Jeogori (저고리), a bolero like jacket. And the skirt is called chima (치마), and there's a lot of other term reffering to hanbok accessories and details. Here's the pic:
Baerae: sleeve
Getdong: lower part of the sleeve which is usually embroidered
Dongjeong 동정: attached colar, it is usually embroidered with a flowery pattern
Otgoreum 옷고름: one loop bow on the front
Norigae 노리개: major accessories, hanged on the chima.


What I really like about hanbok is the otgoreum bow, it looks so cute and took only a minute to tie it ♥~
if you want me to make a vids or step by step photo to put on hanbok and tie an otgoreum, I'll prepare it =D
Otgoreum-one loop bow
I took my lil sis hanbok too~ I think it somehow cuter than mine =( maybe because the color is light pink and white, buuut~her hanbok is all embroidered, not printed...which is I think, the chima is too plain. And the bad thing is, I do not like hanbok without an otgoreum (one loop bow), minus the cuteness~ TT^TT  but hanbok for children usually made without an otgoreum. They put on china-button instead.

Yaay, and that's all for hanbok introduce. I hope you like it =D
I really can't wait for October to come~ I'll be wearing this in an event and share some pics (guess I've recovered by that time)

Well~, if you want, I can post step by step pics (or maybe a vids~) about how to put on a hanbok properly. Or maybe how to tie an otgoreum, if you want to just ask me ( *^___<)/♥~
PS: sorry for low image quality and not posting a selca TT^TT
