3. Book Intro

The royal costume differs from the general costume, starting from the terminology used therefor, and it has a special characteristic that the costume varies depending on the kind of ritual. Especially, the significance of costume was more prominent in the Joseon society with its rigid caste system. Depending on what costume the king wore, the costumes of the queen, the crown prince, the crown princess as well as the people inside the royal court were chosen accordingly, and the contents of the rituals could be determined through the costumes. This book introduces the types of costumes depending on rituals and the system used for the distribution of costumes with a focus on the king and the crown prince who were symbolized by a dragon, and the queen and the crown princess symbolized by a phoenix. As for the royal costume, there are clothes that have been handed down, but it is difficult to grasp the overall outline largely because the clothes are faded in color or few in number. Therefore, this book examines the costumes of the king and queen, focusing on the various royal protocols and the existing costumes, in addition to the liturgical books such as Gukjooryeuiseorye (Book on the Protocols of the Nation's Five Rituals), Gukjooryeuiboseorye (Book on the Crown Princess's Costume), and Sangbangjeongnye (Book on the Royal Costume). The royal costume of the Joseon Dynasty was gorgeous but utilized costumes that were completely divided according to status and protocols while putting forward frugality. As an example, if you look at the patterns on royal costumes, there are 9 patterns embroidered for the king and 7 for the crown prince. In the case of the king, five of the patters are on the king's top and four of them are on the bottoms.
What the author of this book is trying to say is not limited to material, so-called costume. After all, the costume is worthwhile only when there is a wearer. Accordingly, the author is trying to learn about that age through costume. In that sense, although there are other books about the royal costume, this book is differentiated in that it was written entirely at the eye level of readers. It is not just a list of costumes according to the kinds of underwear and outerwear. Rather, it examines the process in which the king or the queen wears all the suits of clothes, thereby giving an impression as if I am wearing the clothes together.

3. Book Intro

The jeogori encompasses a uniquely Korean aesthetic and tells the stories of the everyday lives of traditional Koreans. While a part of traditional Korean dress, the jeogori remains a symbol of Korean art that is deeply reflected in our times and our culture. It also is a testament to the lives of Korean women and the Korean aesthetic. Professor Kim Hye-soon, a world-renowned hanbok designer and a faithful devotee to traditional Korean dress, has authored this book, a single-volume compilation of everything there is to know about jeogori. Kim has done extensive research into historical archives and data to take the history of Korean clothing to a new level. It is Korea’s first and only encyclopedia on jeogori, a comprehensive primer on the beautiful shapes, rich palette, thoughtful restrained aesthetics, and elegant grace of jeogori. Jeogori, written as 赤古里 in Chinese characters, typically refers to the upper garment that is worn together with pants or a skirt. The garment tends to be shorter than the lower garments. The jeogori dates back to ancient times and has therefore been with Koreans throughout our history. It is a testament to te culture andhe aesthetics of our forebears and a representation of th consciousness of the various eras. In this book, readers will find illustrations of perfectly recreated jeogori spanning across a full 600 years, to detail the origin, types, forms, changes, and schemes, as the jeogori has been worn by Korean women for nearly 6,000 years since ancient times. From the longer jeogori worn by the spirited women of Goryeo, the sophisticated color-blocked jeogori of ladies of the palace, the rough cotton jeogori of the common folk, to the mini jeogori fashioned by gisaeng courtesans, this book outlines different kinds of jeogori that fully represent the loves and lives of Korean women. The jeogori not only contained the aesthetics of our ancestors but also provides glimpses into the cultural trends and ideas of the times. This book follows the historical significance and changes in cultural trends as presented by the changes in jeogori, and by doing so, offers meaningful information to students of traditional Korean clothing and experts, as well as average readers who love traditional Korean dress and wish to keep its spirit alive.

3. Book Intro

When watching historical Korean dramas, the most interesting and eye catching points after the story line are the beautiful Hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) worn by the characters and the beautiful accessories with unique personalities. That's why the old accessories in the historical dramas are often popular, and some Korean hairpin (binyeo, or Korean ribbon called daenggi) featured in drams are sold out. However, traditional accessories are not mere beautiful things. It is because many historical facts are hidden in the materials and patterns used in jewelry. Have You Ever Seen such a Beautiful Daenggi? is a picture book that presents the Joseon's representative accessories and its beauty. The story is simple. The fictional character, Myeongdamjeong goes seeking a woman wearing norigae and embroidered daenggi at the request of a gentleman. At the same time, through ornaments that symbolize the social atmosphere and life of the Joseon Dynasty, the book offers a better understanding of the life of our ancestors, as seen in historical dramas.

3. Book Intro

This book chronologically traces changes in Korean clothing culture since Korea's Liberation Day on August 15th, 1945. Clothing culture is shaped by the 'people' who make and wear the clothes and also by their actions and thoughts. This book chronologically studies a collective psychology and the way it is expressed in clothing, particularly attending to the people who wear it, and their thoughts and choices. It also focuses on the connection between a single article of clothing or fashion trend and the effect it had on society and culture as a whole. To do this, this book selects the fashion trends that had the deepest connections with the societal and cultural background at the times that they emerged. This book explores their meanings within the context of the time period that they were most prominent. You could call this book a collection of records that reflect contemporary views and evaluations of past clothing culture. These records reveal the past of the clothing culture from the viewpoint of the humanities and social studies.

3. Book Intro

Wigs made of shiny black Korean hair have become a worldwide fad in recent years. Yet Korean hair-do’s popularity has a long history. A traditional Korean wig, gache, was well known for its beauty even in China in olden times. Not only during the Joseon Dynasty but also during the Three Kingdoms period Korean women paid much attention to their beauty regimens and attire, and Chinese women and Japanese women were also very interested in Korean beauty regimens and attire. How did the royal ladies of the Joseon Dynasty take care of their appearances? There has not been much research about how women dressed their hair, what they used for makeup, and what kinds of accessories they wore in olden times. However, the fact that a certain type of style was popular at a certain time implies that there existed a universality of aesthetic sense at any particular time. Aesthetic sense changes with the passage of time, so it constitutes the basis of a culture. This book examines paintings and artifacts that are representative of these respective eras in order to imagine the lives of women in each era and it further attempts to look into the differences among these phenomena in terms of era and nation.
Regarding the accessories used to decorate the body as well as the hands and feet, this book tries to investigate their functions and usages as well as their beauty. There is not much in the written record about women’s garments. Yet the beautiful and new are usually recorded in the form of painting both then and now. Examining a variety of paintings, this book has closely observed and fully explored the history of beauty regimens and attire.
The royal family of the Joseon Dynasty represented the epitome of beauty of that time. However, little attention has been paid to date to Joseon royal beauty regimens--the quintessence of beauty-- and Joseon royal costumes—the magnification of beauty. These days hallyu or South Korean culture receives a lot of attention around the world. It would be meaningful to take a close look into the Joseon royal family’s elegant beauty regimen and attire and to compare them with those of the Chinese royal family and the Japanese. This book will bring out the history of these beauty regimens and attire, which has only been considered as a sub category of costume history, placing it center stage and, in so doing, will show how beautiful they were.

3. Book Intro

As the subtitle "History of Korean Clothing Culture" implies, the book examines the history of Korean clothing in this single picture book. In particular, the book covers twenty-nine interesting topics as to why, how, and what we, as the "dressed animals," have lived in so far since the ancient Paleolithians first stripped off animal fur to dress in. The thing that makes this book more interesting is refined, detailed illustration.
This book covers not only the characteristics and transitions of our clothing, represented by jeogori (traditional Korean jacket), pants, skirts and durumagi (traditional Korean overcoat), but also accessories including hats, shoes, and jewelry, the changes in the composition and style of clothing, the changes in manufacturing techniques of materials including cotton, fur and silk, and the other aspects of clothing culture, such as worldview, aesthetics, customs, trend, and exchange with and acceptance of foreign cultures. And more interesting is that the book starts with the fundamental question, "Why do people wear clothes?" Reflecting on the function and role of clothes, the book lets us ponder what clothes are and what they mean in our lives.
The book makes a new attempt of looking at the universality and particularity of our clothing in the context of the world's clothing history. Since the Paleolithians began to sew leather, and the Neolithic acquired the weaving skills, humans have combined these two techniques, sewing and weaving, to make clothes and adapt them to their climate and environment. The author explains this process through vivid illustrations. With the pleasure of seeing traditional costumes from around the world, including a clothing wrapped around a waist or shoulder, poncho-like clothes with two pieces of cloth over the head, one-piece clothing such as the tunic, and clothes worn like a kaftan or durumagi, the book provides a glimpse into the basic structure and system of clothes.
The book tells us that the pants and skirts, often considered to be different clothing for men and women, actually represent northern nomadic and southern agricultural cultures, respectively. It also persuasively argues that traditional forms of Korean clothes, "clothing with right (left) side folded over left (or right) side" and "clothing divided into upper and lower clothes," were influenced by the northern nomadic culture, unlike in neighboring China or Japan.
