What you'll do
Dress in a hanbok from the collection that my team and I have designed for dramas and movie-like experiences. We are involved in every process of making our hanboks, from the fabrics to the design and manufacturing. During this experience, you will dress in one of our hanboks and get a traditional hairstyle of your choice, such as braided, up-style, a wig, wedding-style, or any other traditional style you want (around 40 mins per person). Then you'll choose either the studio or the outdoors for your photoshoot. You will be given a variety of options for photogenic shots, from beautiful hidden palaces to an old folk village (around 25 mins per person). After the experience, we'll provide ALL unedited photos (you would need a usb or you can use ours upon purchase) + five edited digital copies of snapshots for each guest.
I lived in New Zealand in my undergraduate years, and I've always enjoyed traveling and interacting with different cultures. I am currently researching the cultural history of Korea, with a focus on folk paintings and sartorial heritage. In 2018, I organized the hanbok experience booth at Namsan Hanok Village, funded and supported by the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the startup initiative at UOS. My co-host Iley is a professional hair stylist and beautician trained in overseas studios, including Shiseido and Cossett.

The chest band is an important part of our fitting as it makes the hanbok’s traditional silhouette. However, if you have serious health issues or concerns, we do not recommend wearing it.
