HanStyle

The HanStyle section invites you to look into Korea's unique lifestyle and cultural assets through its language, traditional food, clothes, architecture, music, and paper.

By combining ”Han(韓),” a word embracing the comprehensive traditional culture of Korea and ”Style” meaning manners or rules, HanStyle refers to the source of Korean culture representing and symbolizing Korea.

HanStyle is comprised of the six traditional Korean cultural elements, all starting with “Han.” They are Hangeul (the Korean alphabet) Hansik (Korean cuisine), Hanbok (Korean traditional attire), Hanok (Korea's homegrown traditional architecture,) Hanguk Eumak or gugak (traditional music), and Hanji (the paper unique to Korea).
