Hanbok Review+Gyeongbokgung Palace Station hidden spot

  • by

I have worn hanbok in Gamchon Village in Busan previously

Although it is colourful and it also goes well with hanbok, I still think that hanbok is the most suitable to shoot in the traditional Korean palace!

So I decided to wear a hanbok at Gyeongbokgung Palace~~

As soon as you exit Gyeongbokgung Palace Exit 4, there are two hanbok shops

Daehanbok Hanbok is on the 2nd floor

We got there at 4 o’clock

I didn’t expect so many people over there by that time!

The staff there speak Korean, English and Chinese

Therefore there is no language barriers at all~

There are 3 different prices: normal, special and premium

Men and women, young and old, have a huge number of different styles to choose from

I considered it for a long time and finally chose the special hanbok

The staff said after choosing the skirt and she would help me match the top

I chose a dress with a yellow base and pink tulle

It looks super match and I cannot wait to shoot photos!!

There are 3 dressing rooms on the 2nd floor, and the staff will go in and help you put on the hanbok

After wearing it, as I didn’t like the skirt too be too fluffy, I asked the staff to help me add a belt

After wearing it, there will be a small card stating the hairstyle that you have chosen and the locker key

After that, go up to the 3rd floor with hair styling

Because my hair is so short, I can only have the special style

And my friend’s hair is long, so she can have the premium style

After styling the hair, we go directly to Gyeongbokgung Palace

I have to say that the location of this Hanbok store is super good

After going out, walk for 5 minutes and you can see the Gyeongbokgung Palace

Wearing a hanbok to enter Gyeongbokgung Palace is free admission

This is the first time that I wear a hanbok at Gyeongbokgung Palace

It looks really like going back to ancient Korea!

However the palace is too huge and we just took the photos near to the entrance

Turn right and walk for about 5 minutes and there would be the exit

Exit there and walk along the left side, you can see the retro street at the National Folk Museum of Korea

This street is the replica of the 70s to 80s of Korean street with school, cafe, salon, and alike

I love the vibe here so much!

Although it is the 70s of the Korea, wearing Hanbok is not weird here

After a while, we returned back to the station area but is not the time to return the hanbok

We were going to the K-culture Museum inside the Gyeongbokgung station

There is a free exhibition with different scenes

Although it’s small, it is worth going

There is also some people wearing hanbok to this exhibition like me

It is really a nice experience to wear hanbok to the exhibition
