1. Traditional Korean clothes? Hanbok

Hankbok is traditional clothes of Korea.

Normally there are Yu (top), Go (Pants), Sang (Skirt), Po (Jacket) and additional ones like Gwan-mo (hat), Dae (belts), Hwa (Shoes).

During the Joseon Dynasty period, these clothing had lasted for a long time.
These days, normally, people wear Hanbok on special days such as the new years of Korean thanks giving.

Also young people in Korea sometimes take photos while wearing Hanbok.

Many tourists from other countries also try on wearing Hanbok, and you can experience this at Gyungbok-gung palace, Anguk station or Jeon-ju.



2. Hanok (Korean style house)


Hanok is a form of traditional Korean house that is built using traditional Korean way of building.

It is also called Joseon Jib (Joseon house).

Usually, this type of houses is built with mountain placed at the back while facing water (river).

It is possible to warm up the house with traditional heating system called ondol (Korean floor heating system), and the wooden flooring on the outside of house becomes really cool during summer.



3. Hangeul (Korean alphabet)

Hangeul, is distinct Korean alphabet that had been distributed with the name called ‘Hunminjeongeum’, in 1446 (Sejong 28).

Sejong, the great king felt sorry for usual working class people because they couldn’t claim their rights as they couldn’t write or read Chinese letters that is hard to learn.

Thus King Sejong invented Korean alphabet that is easy for people to learn, so they could claim their rights, while writing their knowhow of growing crops and others for record.

Hanguel was created based on King Sejong’s great love for Korean people.



4. K-pop

K-pop means songs that are released and being popular in Korea.

It is also called as Gayo in Korean, and the name K-pop came from ‘Pop’, meaning songs in English speaking country, and placing initial of the country’s name in front of the word ‘pop’ to represent the country’s songs.

This term, K-pop is now widely known and used after Korean songs became popular in other countries as well.

Dramas are also being very helpful to Korean wave and spreading Korean cultures across other countries.

Plastic surgery techniques in Korea are well-acknowledged worldwide.

They are type of magic in present day, and now they are becoming one of Korean cultures.

Even celebrities from other countries visit Korea to get plastic surgeries.
