Where to wear Hanbok in Daegu
I would love to make a paragraph or maybe a sentence of details on where to wear Hanbok in Daegu and put a lot of pictures in it, but I feel bad for myself. So here is some unrelated intro, currently in early December and its cold now. Average of 5-degree Celsius! My Malaysian self, layered my clothes a lot haha Most trees that used to be in autumn color now left only with their leaves-less branches but I went here when it was still the beginning of fall.
Okay if you only here for the info, it would be Otgol Village. Probably the last stop (by bus). We went there early in the morning but when we arrived, the whole village is under renovation. The village consists of small community. So, everyone literally knows each other. Which proven when we ask an uncle, where can we try the Hanbok and he started to call an aunty and from there everyone knows that we are there haha
This place has a lot of pretty Hanbok, very well made and looks very expensive. We rent the Hanbok for an hour for 15,000KRW. We are allowed to “trespass” any house compound, as I say before it’s a village with small community and they stayed there. If you feel uncomfortable to sit on their balcony or go to the garden at their house compound, there are a lot of empty compound (I think it’s purposely emptied for visitor).
I would recommend you who are going to try a Hanbok to wear a lighter or soft color Hanbok, they found it more flattering. When we were gathering to the lady’s house, I don’t know if it’s just us or any visitors, but they will serve you light snack.
Then, after all the pictures, we ate at I think the one and only restaurant there, which funny enough, this one uncle decided to pay for our lunch. Bless him <3 Before I forgot, the cast of running man used to film here for one of their many episodes. If you are interested about more place you can read my post on Kim Kwang Seok road or Apsan Observatory.
Quick update woof
p/s: Its almost time for me to go back to my home. Back to the people that I love. As much as I love Korea and the people here, I miss home. From spending almost 4 months here I soon realized my small ambition to have a nomad lifestyle, didn’t suit me at all. The sense of stability satisfied me better than the feeling of freedom leaving home. I love travelling but maybe 3 days per month, not the whole 3 and half month haha
