Fashion & Style : Traditional Korean Hair Pins

“All the Korean historical dramas are all so beautifully made. The sceneries, makeup and costumes. Everything.”

“Yes indeed! Visually stunning! A treat for the eyes. Everything! Including the hair pins! Especially the hair pins!” :)

Agree or disagree?

(Quotes found on Tumblr.)

If you don’t agree, it’s probably because you’re never seen a Korean historical period drama. If you had then you would know that you could create a collage or a montage of 1000s of scenes of women wearing those fabulously beautiful hair ornaments. Pick the ones that suit your fancy and then go shopping to see if you can find them! :)

My intro to historical K-dramas was by way of a 2009 TV series, “Tamra the Island“. There was a scene in one of the episodes where the mother of the main male character was looking at some beautiful hairpins presented to her by her future daughter-in-law. Even though I could not stand either one of those female characters (snobs with a capital “S” for snakes), the hairpins were undeniably pretty!
