Manhwa drawings of Hanbok dress

Hanbok is a traditional Korean dress. There are several different types of men's wears (i.e. white jacket-like robe for casual wear by the yangban aristocrats; colored robes for scholar official bureaucrats, black jacket-like robes with colored arms for the military officers, etc.), but women's dresses all stick to this layout:
Koreans wear Hanbok's on very special occasions, such as the Chinese New Year, weddings, graduation, etc. Actually, with exception of the New Year, only women wear hanbok's, and men prefer coat-and-tie.

Here are some pictures of people in Hanbok:

Doesn't the dress of a Japanese priestess look very similar to a Hanbok dress?

the reason kikyo's dress and much of the japanese dresses such as kimonos look like the korean hanbok is because during history when the japanese only wore those sumo underwear looking things(lol idk wht its called XD) the koreans, specifically the baek jae people during the time, went over to japan and made them some clothes that can actually cover their bodies. :)
