Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress, has been in vogue recently largely thanks to Jungkook ― lead vocalist of K-pop titan BTS. The singer has been sporting a modernized and trendy hanbok wherever he goes, inducing international fans' interest in the outfit.


Corea Image Communication Institution (CICI), a global cultural promotion advocacy, also invited one of the best people to reveal the A to Z of hanbok for its monthly forum on Tuesday at the Embassy of Oman in downtown Seoul. It was Geum Key-sook, who designed the hanbok-themed snowflake-patterned costumes for the placard-bearers at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics opening ceremony.


"The aesthetics of the hanbok can be found in its lines, shape, silhouette, styling, colors, patterns and accessories," Geum said.


What's more fascinating is its flexibility, according to Geum. "Hanbok can use either primary or neutral colors, emphasize emptiness or fullness," she said. "It can be covering or revealing. All these hinge on people and situations."



Comparing and contrasting the hanbok of the past and present, Geum added: "But people should be careful when using the term 'modernized hanbok,' since it could be misunderstood that the modern-style hanbok is an enhanced version. The better term might be 'daily hanbok.'"
