Miss Korea hopefuls walk the runway

Prospective Miss Koreas lined up on August 1 to participate in the 2008 Miss Korea Hanbok Fashion Show & Cultural Performance. The event, which took place in the Grand Ballroom of Seoul’s Namsan Hyatt Hotel, precedes the the 52nd Miss Korea Pageant, which kicks off on August 6.

The reigning Miss Korea 2007, Lee Ji-sun, recently competed (but failed to make the cut, alas) at the Miss Universe Pageant in Vietnam last month. She was, however, a key part of the fashion show, dressing in a royal hanbok with formal headdress, partnered with actor Go Joo-won (below, they are the first two in the top row).

These Hanbok are so beautiful. Miss Korea 2007 looks quite nice in that royal Hanbok and the head piece is exquisite.

the hanbok was based upon confucian beliefs which emphasised virtue in a woman, therefore clothing weren't based upon yeah, basic sex appeal, fitting closer to the body and being more "charming" as you say. I'm not saying the ao dai isn't pretty because it is but you can't compare and say one thing is more superior especially if you don't know how the design came around to be. Therefore the hanbok for women in general and particularly in the royal house, the skirts (chima) were rectangular in shape but only the gisaeng (kisaeng) have tubular shapes in an effort to be more "appealing" to men.
