Description
The Ministry of Communications is issuing these two stamps as the second part of a series introducing traditional Korean clothes. These two stamps feature Konryongpo and Jukui, royal costumes of the Yi Dynasty.

1. Konryongpo: This costume was worn by a king when he performed routine court duties. It is made of yello silk with a lining of red silk. The breast of the garment is buttoned near the right shoulder. Golden embroideries of five-toed dragons are attached to the breast, back and shoulders of the costume. Together with this costume, a king wore a royal cap called Iksonkwan, a jeweled waist band and black cloth boots and held a scepter made of white jade.
