This is Korean traditional dress named 'Hanbok'. It's my personal tailored dress, which I wear to every remarkable holiday in Korea.

Many of you asked me about my last name - Choi. This is my husband's family name, and since now I belong to Korean family, I should follow all their traditions, including wearing this dress )

you're a vision of beauty in this! It's nice of you to respect their tradition. In fact, many old Slavic customs (and national dresses) resemble the Asian ones, there is a similar simbolism of bright colours to be found if you look for it. It is in our tradition as well to wear red dresses at weddings, but in the modern world we have forgotten about some of our old customs.

Thank you for your comment, dear~
Korea is a country with very old and strong traditions and they are proud to keep them still, no matter of passed time. I admire them really )
