Matching couple of Korean dolls wearing Hanbok, the traditional Korean dress. The hat (Gat) indicates that the male is a scholar. Unfortunately their clothes are quite faded; the female’s skirt was bright blue and the male’s pants were pink. A former owner left a sticker under their stand which reads ‘7-10-1979 Seoul’.
Folklore is in the air… uhm… ear!

No postcard available. There should be a nice postcard here that matches these dolls, to show you how the people living in South Korea are dressed in their traditional costume.
There is nothing suitable in our postcard books at the moment, too bad!
