Especially,

It is circle, square, or butterfly shaped.
A lady usually use 2 or 3 Tteoljams ; fav.me/d6v9euj

hello.. thank you sooo much for your info  :)
i want to ask, in early joseon era, if a man gives woman a dwikkoji, could that mean he propose to her? in many korean drama, its show with binyeo not dwikkoji, but historycally, the beautifull binyeo like dragon, phoenix, etc were made in late joseon era right? i watched some of historical kdrama in goryeo or early/middle joseon era like scarlet heart, six flaying dragons and flower in prison. In that 3 drama, all the men give the womens dwikkoji not binyeo. Conclusion, in early joseon or goryeo, the dwikkoji is also used for propose to a woman, right? no? but same resources stated that binyeo is used from 3 dinasty era.. lol.. i am confused XD..
and thanks again for your info.

Oh, well..... I have NEVER heard about the culture like that... XD

haha well I haven't  watched that dramas
but I understand why the uses that scenes - boys give binyeo / dwikkoji to girls - a little.

1. it is quite important accessories for women that times
2. 
dwikkoji and exactly binyeo is only for "married" women.
so when a boy give that items to a girl, it will probably be able to the message "won't you marry me?"

In Korea we don't have the symbol like a wedding ring,
so drama teams used that items. Just my guess ^_^

You draw it so beautifully :)  May I asked you? I watch Arang and The Magistrate. Arang didn't wear a single braid and she's not married. She just pony tail her hair. Her friend - the woman priest - a psychic or fortune teller arrange her hair like married lady while she's not married yet. Thanks before for the answer later :)  :hug:  I'm sorry, I always curious :)

I didn't watch that drama
but most Korean girls very loved it ^_^
And I cheched some images of the drama.

In fact,
Almost every Korean lady of old time wore a single braid.
It was a kind of the social convention.
But <Arang and The Magistrate> was
not a "authentic" historical drama, but just "fusion" one.
So a few adaptation designs were possible.

And You mean the girl "Bang-Ul", right?
Many Korean female shamans made their hair "Jjok".
It was not a special reason.
You can just think that;
'Actually a female shaman could't marry.
And she married with her job, a spirit, or a god.'

You don't need be sorry
I'm very like to explain stories like this~Tard Happy

I see I see, Thank you so much :)  Yes, Bang Ul. She's so pretty. Oh, My...., in the real world, girl shaman can't married o_O  Is Dong Yi 's costumes - Korean drama authentic?  I saw Jak Ong Jun - there so many beautiful modern hanbok but in Jak Ong Jung it supposed to be ancient korean :)  How about Tamra Island? Is there true a diving girl can wear short pant/trousers and not chima and the socks?  I thought a feet and a leg of a woman is forbidden to see :)  I'm sorry to bothering you again *I'm so excited*   Thanks before :) :hug:

No problem~!! :)

Well, some shamans couldn't marry,
but usually people thought a shaman is a humble and abnormal.
(Do you know that Confucianism was unchallenged
as the state religion in old Korea?
They put emphasis on the realist scholars' formality)

Dong Yi was a real person,
but her name, her costume, and the drama's story is fiction.
I don't know well what in Jak Ong Jung is. do you have any image URL? :-? (Confused) 

And yes, it was the REAL costume for diving girls.
You're right. ladies' body had to be forbidden from men,
but it is VERY VERY INefficient to swim wearing wide and big clothes.
well, many noble people tried to prohibit them from diving just with a Jeogori...
it was no use wink grin

I'm glad to hear that :)

This is Jak Ok Jung  from Wikipedia  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jang_Ok-…

Ah you mean Jang Ok-jeong ^_^

-

Well... do you know
The backgrounds of <Jang Ok-jung> and <Dong-Yi> was the same historical fact and story?

A historic event of 3 women and 1 king.

King Suk-jong
Queen Inhyeon
A Royal Concubine - Hee Bin Jang (named Jang Ok-Jeong)
A Royal Concubine - Ms. Choe ; Suk Bin Choe (she is Dong-Yi)

This is very very famous story in Korea.
Every Korean knows Hee Bin Jang.
And many historical dramas were made.

But actually,
both Jang Ok-jeong and Dong-Yi are not authentic.
their hanbok were very beautiful,
but their historical researches were terrible ^^;;

-

If you want to know the more correct costume in this time,
then I recommend K drama <Jang Hee Bin> in 2002.
This drama's costume was very good Little Pixel Heart 

-

Dong-Yi, in fact, Ms. Choe, was just a court lady.
She wore a jade green Jeogori, a navy Chima,
and more brilliant dress when she became a royal concubine ^_^

All of them are so amazing!  Were some of these used as potential weapons as well?

Well, It is not main use,
But maybe women could protect themselves by this sharp accessories, too ^^
There are different ornaments made for ladies' protecting themselves.
