Introducing the Hanbok Fusion

It’s almost time for Seollal (Korean New Year) once again and sooner we would be seeing some of our favorite Kpop artists and Kdrama actors and actresses to send their greetings to their fans.. and so I thought I would post something about the Hanbok Fusion.

If you are a Hallyu fan, you would probably know what a Hanbok is. It is the Korean traditional costumes. We see it all the time in the Saeguk (historical) dramas. The Hanbok is a very colorful dress that comes in different designs and colors. Most often these dresses are won for special occasions like wedding, birthdays and traditional stuff. However, that doesn’t stop the hanbok from becoming modernized. Thus I give you the Fusion Hanbok.

Fusion Hanbok is like taking the traditional Hanbok and giving a new twist to it so it can be worn for other occasions like an office party, or a modern wedding, or at an awards show. You may have noticed some Kpop girl groups wear them before (like Secret).

Some of the designs include having the hanbok style cut like a cocktail dress, and some have the same hanbok style as well as the length minus the sleeves. These style added a touch of the contemporary style.

I’m posting up my favorites on this posts…

Which one would you wear?

I super love fusion hanboks! I wish I had one… I think this is all because of seeing Yoon Eun Hye’s clothes in Goong! kk

But if you would like to have your own fusion hanbok, you can visit this site:  http://www.sonjjang-hanbok.com/

They make hanbok.. but i’m not sure about the quality though. I haven’t ordered from them, but their designs are quite good, especially the cocktail styled hanboks.

Now I want my hanbok!~~~ kk

Fashion Trend – Secret (Korean Group) Style

There is no doubt that Korea is a fashionista country. And it is very evident in how the way people there dreess up, even when they are meeting their friends. A friend once told me that you cannot just dress down in Korea or will look like a loser on the street.

Now thanks to the Hallyu wave, Korea’s fashion has spread all over the world. Even from where I live, some teens dress like how Kpop artists dress up on Music shows (though sometimes it’s ridiculous, because it’s very hot in my country!!!). However, not all the things that artists wear on the shows are wearable to me. I think it’s good for their perfomances, but going around the mall.. uh uh! No way!

Now to the main topic.. Secret has made promotions for 2 songs this year, one is for Shy Boy and the other is for Starlight, Moonlight. And what I noticed from their concept, is that they used clothes that are very wearable. It’s casual but very chic. And definitely not over the top.

Apparently, these clothes have been a trend in Korea, where girls show their feminine sides with soft tones and goddess like styled dresses.

And thanks to secret the 50’s 60’s style clothes are gaining interests again among the young generation. It scream vintage. And did I tell you how much I love the shoes!! Mary Janes!!! If there was a time I’d like to go back to that would be the 50’s and the 60’s.. I just love their style back then.

This is what I admire about the group and their stylists!

I still love the other girl groups but sometimes I can’t wear what they’re wearing!
