It’s that time of the year! Chuseok is around the corner! This year the 3-day holiday begins on September 30th. For you KPOP fans, you’ve mostly likely heard of Chuseok, if you don’t already know what it is. Chuseok is a traditional Korean holiday, and some call it the “Korean Thanksgiving”. Every year it begins near the Autumn equinox, and everyone returns to their hometowns to celebrate a good harvest. There’s always a major harvest festival, and people visit their ancestors’ tombs to pay respect and perform rituals, to thank their blessings.
Oftentimes, it’s the only time of year where our idols truly get a break from their busy schedules. Well, for us jolly KPOP fans, of course we have to celebrate! Ningin will lead the early celebration with some traditional eye candy: Idols in hanboks! (It’s a traditional clothing that Koreans dress in for this holiday.)
So I thought, what’s better than to start off with the fashionista in our hearts, G-Dragon? He poses adorably in a vibrant, red hanbok. Sorry that there’s no group photo of Big Bang in hanboks, but I’ve found them separately!
I couldn’t find a picture of Taeyang wearing a hanbok. Taeyang, where is your hanbok love?
Gosh, look at Mir’s adorable smile! However, sorry Mir, my favorite in this picture goes to Joon! I like how his hanbok doesn’t have a pattern, it gives the detail on the belt more attention, and the collar seems clean and crisp.

miss A’s Suzy looks cute in this selca! I normally wouldn’t like this shade of yellow, but on a hanbok,
and because Suzy is the one wearing it, it’s actually very charming. (There seems to be no group picture of miss A in hanboks either.)
If I were to pick, Dara would claim the number one spot for the female idol that looks best in a hanbok. Dara is so beautiful in traditional clothing! She has the maturity and elegance, paired with a youthful smile. She looks perfect!
F.T Island poses together in hanboks, but I think I prefer the second set much better, with bolder colors and interesting designs. Though, why are there only three members in the second photo? The whole group would’ve looked great in those hanboks!
Now these hanboks are special! I haven’t seen many hanboks with such metallic colors, and KARA rocks it! Hara’s is my favorite for this picture. However, I found the picture below and it is too pretty for me not to share it!
It was really difficult deciding between Hara’s and Nicole’s, but in the end, Nicole’s definitely claimed my favorite. The green and purple shades work so well together, and her slightly more modern hair looks great with it!
Super Junior poses happily together in their traditional clothing! This was taken a fairly long time ago, when they were still promoting as 12 members while Kibum worked on his acting. Sungmin looks really happy to be in his favorite color!
The ladies of 4Minute look like princesses in this photo. I really like the vibrant red in Sohyun’s outfit, along with her hair accessory, which I would’ve missed if not for the selca below! The gold flower detailing on her straps add a little sophisticated twist to the outfit.
As my favorite idol group, SHINee was the first I thought of when writing this post. The episode in Hello Baby, where they dressed in hanboks in celebration of new year’s, was very memorable. They even did a mini fashion show showcasing their traditional clothes, with hilarious descriptions of each person! Since I love each member so much, the favorite hanbok wearer would be…
Bonus - Jokwon’s Dog
So, that concludes our list for idols sporting hanboks for Chuseok! There are so many pictures of idol groups out there wearing traditional clothing, and these are only some of them. If we happen to miss your favorite idol group, do search it yourself! Idols all look so attractive in traditional clothing, and I love how they strongly embrace their culture. Happy Chuseok, everyone!
