Hanbok Girls is a Hanbok rental shop located right next to Exit 3-1 of Gyeongbokgung Station and is a popular rental store among tourists and locals alike. The shop is located near the entrance of Gyeongbokgung Palace, so it's super convenient for you to rent and return your Hanbok!
Upon entering, you will see that the shop has a wide variety of Hanbok designs and colors, ranging from simple to unique. The shop also regularly updates its collection with new Hanbok designs that cater to the preferences of tourists. Therefore, you are sure to find a style that you like here!
Currently, Hanbok Girls offers three types of hanbok at the store: the General Hanbok, Special Hanbok, and Premium Hanbok. You can choose based on your personal preferences!
After picking out a skirt of your liking, the staff will help you select a matching top, or you can also choose it yourself. The tops also come in a variety of colors and designs. One thing I like is that the sizes here are very diverse, from small to large, so everyone can find a suitable size!
In addition to Hanboks for women, they also have Hanboks for men and children here! The prices for the three types of Hanboks for women, men, and children at Hanbok Girls are the same!
What makes Hanbok Girls popular among the many Hanbok rental stores near Gyeongbokgung is that if you book a hanbok rental at Hanbok Girls through Creatrip, not only will you receive a discount, but you will also receive free hair styling, inner skirts, hair accessories, bags, and more! This offer is not available anywhere else except Creatrip! This will help you save a considerable amount of money when renting a Hanbok!
Currently, Hanbok Girls offers three hair styles, and as you can see, if you do not book through Creatrip, you will have to pay an additional 3,000 KRW at the store. The hairstyle plays a crucial role in completing the perfect look for the Hanbok!
The staff's hairdressing skills here are excellent, so you can fully trust them! The staff is also very friendly and enthusiastic in helping you choose suitable hair accessories. Please note that there are some exclusive and special hair accessories at the store that will require an additional fee.
When wearing a Hanbok, it's essential to wear an inner skirt underneath. Normally, there is a fee for this, but if you book through Creatrip, it will be free of charge! The inner skirt will make your Hanbok look more voluminous and beautiful, and prevent it from sticking to your body!
In addition, Hanbok Girls also provides bags, hats, and many other accessories for you to use and complete your Hanbok look!
After browsing around and looking at the store's collection, I decided to choose the Premium Hanbok. These are the latest and most popular designs in Korea. With their soft and delicate colors, they will make you look very elegant! I also rented an outer coat, which is a new trend. It gives a very luxurious feel!
If you want to rent an outer coat for your Hanbok, you can pay for it at the store! The price is 5,000 KRW per coat.
But even without an outer coat, the Hanboks at Hanbok Girls are still very beautiful! The weather in Korea is currently very nice so it's perfect for taking photos in a Hanbok!
Hanbok Girls has their very own tailor shop, so there is a wide range of designs for you to choose from. If visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace is on your itinerary, be sure to stop by Hanbok Girls to rent a hanbok and create unforgettable memories in Korea!
