Hanbok March

30 Apr

Over 60 people dressed up in Hanbok (traditional Korean clothes) and walked from Dongdaemun (동대문) to Gwanghwamun (광화문). Thanks to 마익흘 (Michael Aronson) for organizing it. It was a really cool experience.

Since it is so rare for people to wear Hanbok outside on a non-traditional-festival day, we dragged the attention of many people, which was a very fun experience.

Thanks for watching!

    좋은 생각이에요! It is a chance to introduce your traditional costumes to the youngsters and tourist.

    Wonderful outcome for this march, just think maybe next year you can repeat this with greater outpour of participants who support this idea. This is only the beginning of what could be a yearly event. Maybe, a simple idea like this can create a bigger impact not just for the people in South Korea but, other countries to join together in embracing more of what has become uncommon practice for many, our respect for culture worldwide.
