Traditional Korean Costume Exhibition
| Pyongyang, October 15 (KCNA) -- A traditional Korean costume exhibition is going on in the Pyongyang Folklore Park.
On display there are some 100 models of costumes dating back to Koguryo Kingdom (B.C. 277-A.D. 668), Koryo Kingdom (918-1392) and the Feudal Joson Dynasty (1392-1910).
The exhibits show the development and superiority of the national costumes.
Ri Sun Hui, a researcher of the Korean Folklore Museum, told KCNA:
Touring the Pyongyang Folklore Park last year, supreme leader Kim Jong Un called on historians to unearth and ascertain the traditional costumes in an overall way.
The ongoing exhibition displays various kinds of national costumes unearthed in different parts of the country and ascertained in a scientific way through academic deliberation.
Among the exhibits are commoner clothes discovered in the murals of Kamsin Tomb, female dresses in Anak Tomb No.1 and Susan-ri Tomb and female patrician overwear and artistes' dresses in Three Tombs in Kangso District, which are typical of the costumes in the period of Koguryo.
There are also various sorts of female clothes, divided into work clothes, casuals and seasonal clothes, dating back to Koryo Kingdom and the Feudal Joson Dynasty.
Besides, they include models of female overcoat in the period of Koryo Kingdom, chima and jogori (skirt and jacket for woman) in the period from the 15th century to the 16th century and skirts and jackets in the 17th-18th centuries and those in the period from the 19th century to early the 20th century, whose shapes and colors show the emotion and aesthetic tastes of the Koreans.
We will strive to unearth more traditional costumes, associated with the wisdom and talents of the nation, thus contributing to the development of the national inheritance.
