If you’ve ever watched a historical Korean drama, like Moon Lovers or even the recent drama Hwarang, you’re probably quite familiar with what a hanbok is. Hanboks are a type of traditional Korean dress. Although there are also hanboks for men, we mostly refer to the hanboks meant for women. This hanbok style is the 2017 Korean fashion trend that’s in these days!
Here’s an example from the many traditional hanboks of IU during her drama, Moon Lovers.
Most Hallyu fans seem to be in the know of traditional hanboks. As beautiful as they are, they’re a bit of a hassle to wear for your everyday life. That’s when “daily,” or modern hanboks come into play.
The modern, or daily hanbok is a hanbok, only with some modern fixes added to it in order for it to be more comfortable for daily use. They’re often a bit shorter that the full-length traditional hanboks, made with different materials, rather than the usual silk, and have a wider variety of patterns. Check out a few of the “Daily Hanboks” forming the 2017 Korean fashion trend below!
Adorable children’s models are trying out the 2017 Korean fashion trend as well!
We can be sure that we’ll be seeing more of these kinds of modern hanboks in 2017, as well as variations to the already creative style. It’s only a matter of time before this style sweeps through the streets of Korea!
