One of the things on my bucket list while in Korea was to wear a hanbok and roam on the streets. Oneday Hanbok had kindly rented us the hanbok which allowed us to have an authentic experience.
Rental starts from 13,000 won (SGD15) for 4 hours and it was an eye-opening experience in their boutique where we got to select from hundreds and hundreds of traditional wear, together with accessories to pair with.
Since we were staying near Gyeongbokgung area, we decided to walk to Bukchon Hanok Village and Gyeongbokgung Palace by foot as the owner told us that it’s a walking distance away but hey, it’s really really far lol! We walked for at least 30 minutes, took lots of steep routes and climbed lots of stairs. surprised
After selecting our hanbok! smile
Il-Hong Building, Level 3, No.303, Chungmuro 4 (sa) ga, Jung-gu, Seoul
Operating hours: 10am – 8pm daily
The iconic Bukchon Hanok Village! bigsmile It was packed with tourists who tried to secretly take photos of us, and we also politely rejected some. angry
Did a simple braiding on my hair. smile
Took this in the vinehouse where we were staying at, like a wife waiting for my yeobo eh? bigsmile It was really fun wearing the hanbok for a day, minus the weird stares and photo requests we get from strangers. uneasy Whenever possible, I’ll definitely try out traditional wears when I travel! smile
