Hanbok is the traditional costume/cloth in Korea. In South Korea they called as Hanbok (한복) meanwhile in North Korea they called it as (조선옷) Joseon-ot.
The words “Hanbok” (한복) in korean come from words (한) + (복) . In Korean, “한 means korea ..*psst did you know the name of republic of korea? Yeahh! That was (대한민국) can you see where is 한 come from?

But nowadays they is no any limit for wearing Hanbok. People (in Korea) often worn Hanbok in special events like Birthday, wedding, anniversary and also Chuseok (korean thanksgiving day).
