Women's Overgarment by Glimja Women's Overgarment by Glimja
During the Joseon Dynasty,
Women hid their face with veil when they went out
to keep distance from men.

These are Jang-ot and Sseugae-chima,
which were used  more conveniently than veil.

Jang-ot was for the normal
(Jang<長> means 'long'),

and Sseugae-chima was for royal & noble ladies
(Sseugae means 'head dressing').

Women went out with these covering their head,
except the face.

In the late Joseon,
People came to use them without distinction of status.

This is one of the reasons why all of Iran was raving over Dae Jang Geum?

The one on the right looks like a skirt worn over the head -- the one on the left looks like a long coat worn over the head.  I wonder if that's what they evolved from?  Anyway, very nice and informative drawings, as always.  Thank you!

It is nice to see beautiful hanboks in fusion historical drama,
but many Korean fusion historical dramas
are very trite and immature romance...^^;;

I would fall in love with that kind of fusion works,
but now I prefer to watch authentic historical dramas
based on thorough historical research,
like Jeong Do Jeon.
Well, I agree that foreigners will love fusion historical romance more :)

For sure it's beautiful.
I don't Watch so many Korean dramas but I agree with you from what I have seen, they have a lot of romance in it and only a few sticks to the historical facts.
To foreigners for sure it will look exotic and really beautiful but when you starts to get really interested in Korean History and culture, you seek for something else.
It's my opinion of course and I really apreciate your research work on Hanbok.

that day may come... maybe when the dramas would get more "maturity" and the audience too.

They looks kinda like flowers wearing veils like that. Did women of all classes have to wear these during the Joseon times?

But many women just exposed their face in Korean historical drama.

It really hides everything beside's the face, it's like a triangle with a face.
But I still like it xD

Jang-ot, Sseugae-chima, like chador and hijab,
look very beautiful,
if they are not symbols of the oppression....^^
