The Silla Kingdom, which was located in the east to southeastern portion of the Korean peninsula, was one of the longest sustained dynasties in all of Asian history. The kingdom spanned an astonishing 992 years in length from 57 B.C. to 935 A.D. The Silla Kingdom was founded by King Hyeokgeose of Silla (r. 57 B.C. – 4 A.D.) in 57 B.C.E. around present-day Gyeongju. It started as Saro-guk, which was a city-state within a twelve member confederacy known as Jinhan. By the 2nd century, Silla existed as a distinct state within the region. And by the 3rd century, the Silla Kingdom expanded its influence over the neighbouring city-states; however, during this time, Silla was probably still nothing more than a strong member of a city-state confederacy.
At the time of King Jijeung of Silla’s reign, which lasted from 500 – 514 A.D., the Silla Kingdom was still politically and militarily weak compared to the neighbouring kingdoms of the Baekje and Goguryeo Kingdoms. However, under King Jijeung of Silla’s reign, Silla achieved important advancements in agricultural technology like plowing by ox and extensive irrigation. These advancements resulted in social and cultural developments and reforms in Silla society. As a result of these advancements, the Silla Kingdom gained land. Finally, during the reign of King Jijeung of Silla’s successor, King Beopheung of Silla (r. 514 – 540 A.D.), the social and governmental reforms were fully in place with a centralized aristocratic state. With a strong monarchical central government, the Silla Kingdom was ready to expand both geographically and culturally.
Buddhism was first introduced to the Silla Kingdom in 263 A.D. by the Goguryeo monk Ado. However, when Ado first attempted to teach Buddhism, the Silla people almost killed him. Unfortunately, Ado had to hide at the Buddhist sympathizers’ house, Morye, who would help shelter future Buddhist monks like Ado and Mukhoja. Both would secretly teach Buddhism, while also curing royalty like the daughter of King Michu of Silla (r. 262 – 284 A.D.). Initially, people expected the miraculous from Buddhism like the curing of royal ailments. Other monks like the Goguryeo monks Chongbang and Myoguch weren’t as lucky as they were killed for their Buddhist beliefs and efforts.
For all these reasons, it is commonly accepted that the Silla Kingdom was the last of the Three Kingdoms on the Korean peninsula to accept Buddhism. The main reason for this delay in accepting Buddhism, and was hinted at before, was the lack of a strong central government and monarchy for the longest of time. This weak foundation resulted in the delay in the acceptance of Buddhism. Once more, a Goguryeo monk by the name of Ado, which simply refers to monk in general, helped further introduce Buddhism to the Silla Kingdom. This time, Ado heard that a foreign envoy had brought King Beopheung of Silla incense. Master Ado traveled to the royal palace, and when he was shown respect by the foreign envoy, the king realized just how much Buddhist monks were and should be revered. It was only after this meeting that King Beopheung allowed Buddhism to be accepted, perhaps for foreign political gain much like the Goguryeo Kingdom to the north. And while the Silla people were the first to accept Buddhism, it was still resisted by a considerable number in the Silla aristocracy.The Martyrdom of Ichadon. This mural can be found at Heungnyunsa Temple in Gyeongju.
It was only after the martyrdom of Ichadon (501-527 A.D.), during the reign of King Beopheung of Silla (r. 514 – 540 A.D.), that Buddhism gradually gained the acceptance it would need to become recognized as the national Silla religion. According to the legend of Ichadon, and as recorded by both the Samguk Yusa (Memorabilia of the Three Kingdoms) and the Samguk Sagi (History of the Three Kingdoms), Ichadon was the nephew of King Beopheung. For a long time, King Beopheung wanted to make Buddhism the national religion of Silla, but he continually met opposition and resistance from the powerful Silla aristocracy. Wanting to help his uncle, Ichadon concocted a plan to help King Beopheung. So he told the king secretly, “If you want to spread Buddhism, please kill me.” The king was surprised by such a shocking proposition, so he asked Ichadon, “How can I kill you and raise Buddhism?” Ichadon answered, “In a saint’s teaching, there is a secret dharma. If I die, there must be a miracle. Intrigued, the king asked, “My understanding of the way of spreading Buddhism is to perform good deeds. How then can I kill my faithful retainer?” As a result of such uncertainty, King Beopheung rejected Ichadon’s proposal. So Ichadon took it upon himself to force the hand of King Beopheung. Ichadon spread a false royal order that stated that the king wanted a Buddhist temple built in the Cheongyeongnim Forest. The king deemed the rumour treacherous, and he was forced to sentence Ichadon to death because at that time, if you confessed to being a Buddhist, it was punishable by death. Before his execution, Ichadon prophetically stated, “If Buddhism is good then when my head is cut off, the blood that flows will be white.” And when Ichadon was in fact executed, white blood flowed from his head. Taking this as a miraculous sign of Buddhism’s power, the aristocracy no longer objected to the new religion. Just one year later, in 528 A.D., King Beopheung ordered that no living thing should be killed, which included Buddhists. As a result, Buddhism was recognized as the official religion in the Silla Kingdom.
While Buddhism was recognized as a religion in 528 A.D., it wasn’t until 535 A.D. that it became a national religion. It was also in 535 A.D. that King Beopheung built Heungnyunsa Temple in Gyeongju. When parts of this temple were completed, King Beopheung became an ordained monk, and he took up residence at the new temple. He was followed by his queen, when Yongheungsa Temple was built, and she became a Buddhist nun under the name of Myobeop, which means “Marvelous Dharma” in English.Present-day Heungnyunsa Temple in Gyeongju.
However, while tremendous strides were made during King Beopheung’s reign, it wouldn’t be until King Jinheung of Silla’s reign (r. 540 – 576 A.D.) that Buddhism, as a national religion, firmly took root. In 544 A.D., Heungnyunsa Temple was completed. In the spring of 549 A.D., a Liang Dynasty (502 – 557 A.D.) envoy brought Silla Master monk Gaktok back to the Silla Kingdom. With him, he brought about one thousand seven hundred volumes of Buddhist sutras. In 550 A.D., to show just how much Buddhism had become an integral part of Silla society, the king appointed Master Anjang, a Buddhist monk, to an important government post. Throughout this period, temples continued to spread like when the famous Hwangnyongsa Temple was completed after thirteen years of construction in 566 A.D. And like his predecessor before him, King Jinheung of Silla became an ordained Buddhist monk near the end of his life.
For the Silla Kingdom of the Three Kingdoms of Korea, Buddhism provided an ideology that would further help unify the nation behind a centralized Silla government. It was also at this time, coincidentally, that Silla started to become a mighty nation. In fact, the Silla Kingdom became so powerful that they unified the Korean peninsula and advanced Buddhism religiously, culturally, and artistically to unsurpassed heights. But more of that in a future post.A computer image of Hwangnyongsa Temple from the Hwangnyongsa-ji Temple Site Museum in Gyeongju. —

There are several common verbs that mean "to touch" in Korean, and each is used differently. In this video I'll show you how to use the most common ones that you'll need, including 만지다, 손(을) 대다, 건들다 (건드리다), 누르다, and 감동(을) 받다. I'll compare and contrast each of these, and also give you some examples of how you can use them.—

In this article, we’ll be talking about a very interesting aspect of culture: Clothing in South Korea.
One of the most important things of consideration, whenever you travel to a place, is not just how to put together the most fun and productive itinerary, but also what to wear whilst there. How do you plan your outfits for the season in place during your trip? And even more importantly: what not to wear when in South Korea, so you do not offend anyone?
In this article, we hope to answer some of your questions regarding Korean clothing, from traditional clothes to modern styles and where to purchase them. We hope this will answer your wonders of what type of clothes you should avoid wearing, and which of your outfits best correspond with each season South Korea has.Why Learn About South Korean Clothing?
Your interest in local clothing styles and fashion may even go beyond the seasonal and cultural aspects.
You may wonder a lot what traditional clothes in South Korea are like, especially upon seeing a photo of a gorgeous hanbok online. Or you may drool after the pretty clothes or that Korean traditional hat that you see worn in Korean dramas, and wonder whether you can fill your suitcase with similar clothes before you head back home from Korea.
You might find yourself watching a historical drama with traditional Korean aesthetics and you might even imagine yourself wearing traditional Korean clothes, running around in villages with traditional Korean houses.
In fact, Korean fashion has been taking up the world like a storm, just like Korean popular culture has.What do they wear in South Korea?
Although you see a lot of western clothing and influences in south Korea. There are notable differences in Korean fashion. You might have seen this unique style in music videos or your favorite Korean drama.
There are a lot of expected similarities with the fashion styles of the west, specifically those that also have four seasons. During winter, for example, it is obviously common to wear warm winter clothes. Summer is where clothing with high-grade lightweight materials becomes popular.Korean Fashion
However, Korea has developed distinctive clothing styles that set it apart from the rest of the world. Although many young Koreans do still prefer clothes inspired by their western counterparts, there are a lot of elements in Korean fashion, both in formal and casual wear, that are quite unique.
Weather patterns have influenced differences in what the regional fashion industry can produce. For example, not only does South Korea has four distinct seasons, but each of their seasons also may not be directly comparable with your own country’s equivalent seasons. For example, for a Northern European, South Korea’s spring and fall seasons may already feel similar to summer up north. Alternatively, for someone from a tropical country, where seasons primarily alternate between dry and wet, South Korea’s diverse season may offer a lot of adapting to get used to. Koreans are quite fond of having four seasons that all come with their own distinct flare – and you’ll want to be prepared for them so that you can fall in love with them, too! Or, at the very least, manage them through.What is the popular clothing style in general?
Essentially, there isn’t one specific clothing style, such as goth or preppy, that majority of Koreans would fall under. However, unless you are visiting a university’s engineering department during the finals season, or something equivalent, you likely won’t see many people dressed super casually, in sweats or the like. Koreans like to take care of their appearance from head to toe, and it shows clearly on the streets. For both formal clothing and casual wear, the clothing style is usually planned further than simply throwing on the first clothes they find in the closet.
Korean people are fond of enjoying colorful clothes. They’re not afraid to use various clothing materials to express themselves and their modern artistic sensibility. If you check out music videos or have watched a Korean drama, you see that there’s really a burst of colorful clothes.
One thing to note is that traditional Korean aesthetics are actually still trendy especially when younger designers reinterpret traditional Korean designs. Although a lot of today’s youth prefer clothes inspired by mostly modern western styles, some elements of Korea’s traditional clothing do still pop up in modern-day designs. You see special fashion events where designers reinterpret traditional Korean designs and make them more modern. They add a uniquely Korean artistic significance to fashion, while still keeping up with the times.How conservative are Koreans in what they choose to wear?
While Koreans are not overly conservative, expecting you to cover yourself from head to toe, they are a lot more modest than for example many Western countries who adapt modern western styles. For men, this mainly means keeping your shirt on at all times.
For women, it’s a little bit more complex. It’s typically best to avoid wearing a low-cut top, or one that exposes your shoulders and/or stomach. Cold shoulder and off-shoulder tops, as well as even crop tops, are getting more popular among young Korean women today, but try to limit especially tops like tank tops in your wardrobe when in Korea. However, short skirts and shorts are OK.
There are also formal occasions and special family occasions that require distinct clothing styles. Korean people are usually mindful of the guests of whatever occasion they might be going to know what to wear on that specific occasion.Are clothes cheap in South Korea?
It largely depends on where you shop for the clothes. If you are in South Korea, you will have access to all their street shops, where clothes are typically priced at their most affordable. Of course, there is then the trade-off in quality. Korean people are fond of affordable fashion items with great aesthetic taste so generally, you can find cheap and wonderful fashion finds in Korea.
When shopping online, whether you’re buying an everyday dress or even a wedding dress, the price of the clothes is often more expensive than if you shopped in the stores locally, but overall Korean fashion is reasonably priced in comparison to many international brands.How to purchase Korean clothing for yourself?
South Korean Fashion is so popular that in fact, the regional fashion industry in Korea has gained international acclaim and has attracted foreign tourists and international fashionistas. Upon seeing how stylish many Koreans are and how much aesthetic taste they have, you may want to add some of that same sense of style and outfit choices onto your wardrobe repertoire.
But where can you shop for Korean clothes, if you are not in Korea? Or what if you are in Korea, but you don’t have the time and effort to brave Korea’s busiest fashion streets? Well, while it may have been an issue a few years ago, today it can be incredibly easy to find a Korean online store with international shipping! All it comes down to is sizing. Below we’ve listed some recommended online shops for purchasing Korean fashion.What are popular clothing brands in South Korea?
And if you are in Korea, we highly recommend shopping there, from brands to street shops, as there are so many cute styles out there! Here are some brands and outlets that foreign tourists and locals are raving about:
- YESSTYLE – Right off the bat, YesStyle is probably the most famous and longest-running online shop selling Korean brands. They do also sell clothes from other countries, as well as other items like cosmetics, art goods, and whatnot. Of all the shops on the list, they likely have some of the cheapest clothing on offer, but the quality of the clothing on their site may also vary the greatest from product to product.
- CHUU – CHUU’s shop is primarily focused on selling clothes from their own brand collection, some of which have been purchased from outside retailers, and some of which have been created by in-house designers. They are most famous for their jeans, but their shop is full of chic clothing that dances around the lines of cute, cool, and sensual, the majority of which are sold at a sensible price.
- STHSWEET – This site is specifically engineered for an international audience. They also sell CHUU’s collection which has produced cool summer clothes to trendy warm winter clothes. This is in addition to around 20 other brands that they carry which features designs using various clothing materials. It’s an excellent selection of different types of brands, from cute, to elegant, to streetwear.
- DABAGIRL – One of the brands sold on STHSWEET’s site, DABAGIRL also has its own online store. The majority of the clothes on their site are from their own brand, but some clothing items from other brands are also sold on the site. The style of DABAGIRL is versatile, including casual clothes, more feminine styles, and also some more hip streetwear outfit ideas.
- KOODING – KOODING is quite similar to STHSWEET in that it sells a variety of different brands, many of which are similar to the brands on STHSWEET. They do have more brands on offer, but they also sell international brands such as Christian Dior and Estee Lauder, in addition to Korean clothing brands.
- STYLENANDA – STYLENANDA is one of the most famous Korean clothing brands, both locally and internationally. Much of what the site sells is from their own brand, which is focused on chic streetwear, but they also sell some clothes from other brands that fit their overall style.
- MIXXMIX – This is another site that offers a variety of different Korean clothing brands for purchase. Plenty of their clothes start at affordable pricing, but you can also find extremely expensive clothes on the site. They have approximately a dozen different brands they sell in their collection, and their advertising seems to be largely geared towards the Western audience.
Along with unique and remarkable food, Clothing is a huge part of Korean culture. Typically made with plain and patterned silks and other fabrics with intricate designs typically featuring graceful lines and national symbols, Traditional Clothing in Korea is unique and rich with history.
Traditional Korean Hanbok
The Hanbok(한복) is an article of distinctive clothing that’s unique to Korea. It has only been about 100 years or so that Koreans gave up on wearing hanbok daily. Up until then, there were different kinds of hanboks worn each day, depending on one’s class (upper classes wore a more colorful version), the time of year, whether it was a special event, and more. It is in fact, a huge part of Korean culture.
Today hanboks are reserved for special occasions only, like traditional holidays, which also means that most modern-day people only see one style of a hanbok being worn anymore.
The traditional hanbok does have a lot of the basic traditional features of clothing that are found in most East Asian countries. However, Korea developed distinctive clothing that set them apart from the rest of Asia.What is a Hanbok?
You might have seen Korea’s traditional clothing in person during one of the Korean traditional holidays or you might have seen them in a historical Korean drama. This traditional Korean clothing comes with basic traditional features such as a bell-like shape, a slim-fitted top, and a wide bottom, especially the skirt for women. The top jacket for women is slim and cropped, creating an illusion of an exceptionally small upper body, while the wide skirt offers a full lower body in contrast, something that is seen as an attractive balance in Korea. This type of cut should be flattering on any type of body. The colorful variations are similar to what the upper classes wore in the olden days.
Every Korean has a hanbok in their closet. However, hanboks can also be rented for an hour or two in special shops near areas like Gyeongbok Palace and Bukchon Hanok Village in Seoul, and Jeonju Hanok Village in Jeonju. On these occasions, the hanboks are worn for fun.
Imagine yourself walking around in traditional Korean attire, strolling around the streets of a traditional Hanok village, walking past the traditional Korean houses, like a Korean person in the past would. This is a fun activity especially among Korean youth, but foreigners and tourists are welcome to it as well.What is Hanbok made of?
The fabrics used in this traditional Korean clothing are light and usually vivid and vibrant in various colors, which have been created using natural dyes. You might see plain and patterned silks, cotton fabric, and other gorgeous fabrics. A Korean traditional hat that is worn with the hanbok along with hair accessories for women.When do you wear a Hanbok?
Koreans may wear the hanbok for events where traditional Korean clothing is expected like Thanksgiving and Lunar New Year. Additionally, on a wedding day, the mothers of the bride and groom may also wear traditional Korean attire. And in a traditional wedding setting, the bride and groom will also get dolled up in special hanboks that are specifically worn during the wedding ceremony.
Children wear hanbok on special occasions as well and the parents are always ready to snap a picture of them.
These days, a modern hanbok exists as well. It follows the same guidelines as a traditional hanbok but is styled to fit use in daily life. It’s quite gorgeous as well, and you can even purchase one for yourself, along with other cute and affordable fashion items at The Korean in Me.Dressing for Korea’s weather per season
As we mentioned above, Korea has four distinctive seasons, and you will want to think about your wardrobe accordingly for each of them. The weather can also change majorly in a short span of time, so you’ll want to be prepared for that as well. So before you hit Korea’s busiest fashion streets or the fashion district, make sure to check out the weather first!Clothing for Spring
If cherry blossoms are your thing, then spring is the best season for you to visit Korea for that reason alone already. Spring also brings along the warmer temperatures. In March it may still be around the 10C degree mark, but by April and May, you may get to enjoy plenty of days with sunny weather and 20C degree temperatures. Since Koreans love enjoying colorful clothes, spring is usually a burst of color You’ll still want to wear those knitted cardigans, but you may not need a coat over them any longer. Or you may want to switch to a lighter coat, like a trench coat or another spring-fitted one. Because it may rain quite a bit, you’ll want to ensure your coat or jacket can handle the rain.
In general, including a lot of long-sleeved shirts, sweaters and hoodies, and long pants in your spring wardrobe in Korea is a sure-fire way to stay comfortable. For footwear, boots that won’t let the rain in are a good choice, as are some shoes and sneakers made for walking and hiking. And because especially evenings, nights, and mornings can remain quite cool, don’t forget to pack up a few pairs of warm socks as well!Clothing for Summer
Summer in Korea is hot and humid and comes together with a month-lasting rainy season. That’s why cool summer clothes are usually in season during this time. You’ll want to wear clothes made with light fabrics that are breathable, such as linen or cotton fabric, and also focus on clothes that are loose-fitted. However, try not to fall into the trap of wearing tank tops or wifebeaters, as they are not common attire in Korea. Also, even at the beach, because of Korean tradition, you won’t see many people wearing bikinis; most Koreans will wear t-shirts or long-sleeved swim tops. As for shoes, it’s up to you whether you want to go for waterproof shoes or sandals.Clothing for Fall
Once September hits, the temperatures slowly begin cooling again, giving much of the same degrees as the spring season would. Only, cherry blossoms are replaced with colorful autumn leaves. A layering tactic may be the way to go, as the day temperatures may still be around 20C, but then mornings and evenings will be much chillier. So even if you only need a t-shirt and a light jacket during the day, do keep a sweater or a cardigan tucked away in your bag waiting for the cooler temperatures that come around after sunset. You may even want to invest in a fleece jacket. For shoes, the same walking shoes and boots as you would wear during spring work excellently.Clothing for Winter
Winter in Korea can get quite chilly, even when there is no snow on the ground. Especially if you come from a country that’s not like places like Canada or Northern Europe, you’ll probably feel the cold in your bones – even those from cold climates do! So it’s incredibly important to dress right if you’re in Korea in the wintertime; and considering how beautiful the country gets when there’s snow, you just may want to be. You’ll want to invest in a proper winter coat, have some cute sweaters underneath, and also protect your fingers and head with some gloves and winter hats. You may even want to consider a thermal layer in your wintertime outfits, and definitely also wear thick pants. For your feet, you want to put on warm socks and boots specific for winter wear.Summary
Whether we’re talking about Korean traditional clothing or the modern styles of both Korean men and women, Koreans seem to have had a specific sense of style since the beginning of time. From a gorgeous traditional costume to today’s everyday wear, South Korea just may be one of the most stylish countries out there.

The most famous type of Korean beef or 한우 (Hanwoo) is located in the city of 원주 (Wonju). It's called 횡성 한우, and due to it being so famous and delicious, it also comes with a hefty price tag. But not to worry! Why? Because my friend said we can eat it for free. How? She had a coupon.
It definitely earns its name as the most famous Korean beef, but at the price tag and due to its location (a bit far from Seoul) in my opinion it's really only for the biggest 한우 fans out there.
