    Seoul is an amazing city. The richness of its culture is a major attraction.
    Thinking of Seoul, I would think of the countrys traditional wear – the Hanbok 한복. There are several types of Hanbok. Different types of Hanbok shows the wearer’s social status, gender, occupation and there are special Hanbok for ceremonies. Traditionally, one could figure out the wearer’s job, educational background and even whether he or she is married or not. There are Hanbok for men, women, royal court, government officials and children. Because Hanbok could reveal the wearer’s social status, there were some government regulations on designs, materials and shapes of Hanbok. For example, only royal families could use golden stripes on their Hanbok.
