Long, long time ago (dated back to the Joseon Dynasty), Hanbok (한복) was the trendy fashion of those times. The word “Hanbok” can be translated as “Korean clothing”. 

There are different types of Hanboks too! There are some for daily wear, ceremonial wear (such as weddings or funerals), and special wear (mostly associated with people of higher class like officials). Now, Hanbok is used as a cultural wear and worn during festive occasions such as Chuseok and Seollal. 

Many have also argued for the history of how the Hanbok was invented. The Chinese believed that the inspiration came from the Chinese Hanfu. While Koreans argued that it was a pure Korean invention.
