Note:

The traditional clothing of Korea, the hanbok (Chos┼Ćn-ot in North Korea) is worn in modern times as semi-formal or formal wear for festivals and celebrations. An adult's hanbok, such as this one, would be worn by an upper-class woman. A child's hanbok may have been worn by a boy or girl, probably at the child's first birthday. The basic hanbok has been known for centuries, although has been adapted and modified over time to incorporate foreign influences and modern textiles.
