Those illustrations are fantastic! Great finds, thanks for sharing them. I love having things like those get posted here. It makes the forum a more valuable resource every time we can add something like that.
Today I created a new thread for the above posts, which had been in an irrelevant thread previously. This can be a good reference source so I'll try to keep it in the current historical board like I do with the timeline.
And here are links to the DeviantArt pages that have the artist Glimja's five hanbok illustrations.
I really want to see that Tang style court official uniform in a drama that involves Kim Chunchu and Kim Yushin. Shilla court officials start wearing those uniforms during Queen Jindeok's reign, but the change is never reflected in all historicals in that timeline. (Ex. KBS Great King's Dream)
This is the opposite of the Tang influenced noblewoman costume(2nd noblewoman in Middle-Last Shilla drawings), which people only started wearing during Queen Jindeok's reign but everyone's wearing them even during King Jinpyeong's time in dramas. MBC Queen Seondeok doesn't even get to Jindeok's timeline yet Queen Seondeok is already wearing Tang influenced girl costume and Mishil wears them even before Queen Seondeok does lol.
- Goryeo costume drawings
The Mongol vassal state era king costume! That's what the kings of the timeline should be wearing! Not the ones they are wearing in King in Love and Empress Ki! I really want to see a historical with Goryeo king from the timeline in that costume. Please!
The artist glimja (real name Lee Soyeon) has published her drawings in illustrated books called Hanbok Story. As of right now, there are two volumes, the third and final on on its way.
I tried ordering them online, but I don't know how to navigaate Korean shopping sites due to not being fluent in the language. Glimja actually offered to deliver a copy to my address provided I pay her directly through paypal. I didn't have a paypal account due to not trusting that site so I declined her offer.
