Description
The Ministry of Communications is issuing these two stamps as the third part of a series introducing traditional Korean clothes. They feature Kangsapo and Tangui, the royal costumes worn by crown prince and princess of the Yi Dynasty.

1. Kangsapo: This costume, which belongs to the category of ceremonial clothes called Myonbok, is made of red silk. Its collar, sleeves and lower edges are fringed with a black decorative cloth about 4.5cm wide. The cloth is also affixed along the edge of Paeseul, an apron-like apparel. Unlike Myonbok, this costume has no royal emblems. But a pair of symbols called Okku are attached onto Paeseul. A crown prince wore this clothes when he accompained the king to receive the royal court officials. Along with this costume, the prince wore a royal cap called Wonyukwan or another named Tongchonkwan.
