[Winner List] Hanbok Photo Sharing Contest
Just like Baju Kurung for Malay, Cheongsam for Chinese and Saree for Indian, Hanbok is the traditional costume for Korean, a beautiful cultural treasure passed down from one generation to another. Its beautifully flowing lines and harmonious color schemes attracted many non-Koreans to try on Hanbok when visiting Korea.
Hanbok is increasingly expanding its global presence due to the popularity of Korean TV dramas, especially those set in the past, and also the joint promotion efforts from Korea government and tourism industry like giving Free entrance to the five main Seoul’s palaces (as listed below) for those who wear Hanbok. Travel back to the old days of Hanyang (Seoul’s name during the Joseon dynasty) by wearing Hanbok and touring around the palaces and cultural heritage sites. The experience is so unique that you must try it for yourself or with your family and friends!
The purpose of this contest is to promote the beauty of Hanbok and encourage more people to try on Hanbok especially when they are visiting Korea. Snap and share a photo of yourself dressed in Hanbok in Korea, and you will stand a chance to win a Korean branded skincare set. Join the contest now!
Built in 1395, Gyeongbokgung Palace, or the Palace Greatly Blessed by Heaven, was the main Palace of the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). The Palace attained all necessary facilities and systems commensurate with its status as Joseon’s primary Palace during the reign of Sejong (r. 1418-1450). Gyeongbokgung Palace is arguably the most beautiful and remains the largest of all five palaces.
Recognized as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, Changdeokgung Palace was the second royal villa built following the construction of Gyeongbukgung Palace in 1405. It was the principal palace for many kings of the Joseon Dynasty and is the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. The palace grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden.
During the latter half of the Joseon period, Gyeonghuigung Palace served as the secondary palace for the king. Situated on the west side of Seoul, it was also called Seogwol, literally meaning “a palace of the west.” The secondary palace was where the king moved to in times of emergency. From In-Jo to Cheol-Jong, about ten kings from the Joseon Dynasty stayed here at Gyeonghuigung.
Located at the corner of Seoul’s busiest downtown intersection, Deoksugung Palace is famous for its elegant stone-wall road. It is also the only palace that sits alongside a series of western style buildings that add to the uniqueness of the surrounding scenery. Jeonggwanheon Hall was the first Western-style building built in the palace, completed in 1900. Gojong enjoyed drinking coffee and spending his free time here.
Changgyeonggung Palace was originally built as Suganggung Palace by the 4th ruler of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejong (r.1418-1450), for his retiring father, King Taejong. It often served as residential quarters for queens and concubines. Tongmyeongjeon was the biggest and most delicate building in Changgyeonggung Palace, and it was built for the queen.
Surrounded by Gyeongbokgung Palace, Changdeokgung Palace and Jongmyo Shrine, Bukchon Hanok Village is home to hundreds of traditional houses, called hanok, that date back to the Joseon Dynasty.
Jongmyo Shrine was a primary place of worship for kings throughout Joseon Dynasty. The memorial service, called Jongmyo Jaerye, is said to be the oldest complete ceremony in the world, and was designated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1995.
