Cheogori and Paji


Men's cheogori were generally longer than their women's counterparts, reaching down to the waist or even lower. Like the women's version, they are tied across the chest in front.

The earliest versions of the paji had narrow legs to facilitate horseback riding and hunting. However, a more agrarian society dictated wider legs to facilitate squatting in the fields. The baggier pants are also more comfortable for sitting on floors than narrower pants.

Dop'o

The dop'o was a scholar's overcoat used from the middle of the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910), although commoners could also wear it for family rites or other special occassions. It was worn over other articles of clothing.

Hakch'angui

This style of clothing was worn by scholars during the Koryo (918-1392) and Chosun (1392-1910) periods. Hak means "study" in Korean, and the style symbolizes a sublime, noble mind.

Shimui

These clothes were worn by scholars during their free time. The name came from the feeling that people had when looking at the clothes. "Shim" means to ponder or contemplate. Similar to hakch'angui, shimui represents a more passive state than actively studying.

T'eol Magoja

The magoja was originally Manchurian clothing. It became popular in Korea after Deawongun, one of the most famous political figures of the late Chosun dynasty, returned from seclusion in Manchuria wearing the clothing. It was used to keep the body warm and was considered a luxury.

Jignyeongp'o

This robe-like clothing first appeared during the Koryo period (918-1392) and was worn by low-level government officials. From the Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910), the clothes were also worn by commoners.
