Hanboknam Photo Reviews

Let's first touch on the difference between traditional hanbok and theme hanbok.


These are traditional hanbok. A style that's often worn on traditional Korean holidays, it's recommended for those of you who want to try out the basic style. 

These are the theme hanbok. The theme hanboks are more showy and colorful, with designs that reflect current trends. 

Catered towards younger, fashion-forward customers!

The Hanboknam store in Gyeongbokgung Bukchon is the biggest hanbok rental store in the area. From the basement floor to the fourth floor, the entire building is Hanboknam, filled with all styles and designs of hanbok. 

The pricing is the same across all Hanboknam stores.

Hanboknam also offers a wide range of wedding hanbok. Other stores usually only have one or two wedding sets or sometimes not at all; if you'd like to borrow a hanbok out for your wedding photo shoot, we recommend Hanboknam. 

Hanboknam designs all of the hanbok, working hard to keep up with the trend each season.

Hanboknam also offers free hairstyling services, so that you won't have to worry about your hair matching your outfit. Hair accessories, however, are add-ons for which extra fees apply.

Get your hanbok rentals from Hanboknam at a 20% discount by booking through Creatrip.
