Hanbok Designs Inspired by the movie ‘Haeohwa’ featuring Han Hyo Joo

Korean female entertainers in the past were called ‘gisaeng’. These women were not only entertainers but also fashion leaders of the time. Often called ‘haeohwa’ meaning a flower that understands words, the gisaengs were not only intelligent and educated, but also incredibly fashionable. Check out the hanbok photoshoot designed by Tchai Kim Young Jin with Marie Claire Korea.

The model has dark eyelashes, thin eyeliner, and light purple eyeshadow over the eyelids. A pink blusher is applied in a round motion over the middle cheeks to express a bright and glowy appearance. The focal point of this look is to highlight the lips with a sparkling purple hue.

A bright red glossy lip color completes this seductive look when wearing her lacy see-through hanbok top in black. The model’s monolids are emphasized with black eyeliner and thick eyelashes. Overall, a peach pressed powder is applied as the last step to create a brightening skin effect.

Modern hanboks are all from Tchai Kim.

A short curly, bob creates a sophisticated look for the model. To bring out her healthy complexion, the makeup artist uses the ‘bare face’ makeup look technique in order to complement the skin. Grey eyeshadow is spread lightly over the eyelids with a thick eyeliner and a light pink in a shade of nude on the lips finalizes her makeup as it resembles a dry cherry blossom.

The curly side bangs and her hair tied lowly in the back gives the traditional image of a gisaeng woman to have a composed, calm aura. The eyebrows are shaped softly with a thin, extended eyeliner for an elegant and sophisticated look. While her lips in deep red resemble the deep color of berries such as schisandra chinensis, found in northern and northeastern China.
