Culture Capsule 9


Honbok, the Korean traditional dress, has been handed down in the same form unchanged for hundreds of years because it is well suited to the Korean climate and culture. The man's basic outfit consists of a jeogori(jacket), baji(trousers), and durumagi (overcoat).
The jacket has loose sleeves and the trousers are roomy and tied with straps around the ankles. The woman's has includes a jeogri(short jacket) with two long ribbons, which are tied to form the otgorum, and has long full sleeves and a full length, high-waisted wrap around skirt called the chi'ma. White cotton socks and boat-shaped shoes, made of silk, straw, or rubber, are worn with this clothing.
