Basically a Princes

Smiles, comments, giggles. Cars slowing down and middle age women beaming in our direction. That is how Korea responded to Jasmine and I donning hanboks, the traditional Korean clothing.

I felt like a princess.

For $9, this wonderful little store let you rent a traditional Korean outfit (or non-traditional sailor suit, depending on your fancy) and wander around Gamcheon Culture Village for an hour. They help pin you in and then do your hair for no extra cost!

The store carried a multitude of fabrics, colors, and sizes aimed at both men and women. (But mostly women.)

And if that wasn’t perfect enough for me, there was an entire stairwell BOOK THEMED.

The entire village is designed for photo shoots. I think Jasmine and I could handily illustrate an entire book of fairy tales just with the pictures we took. I give you:
