More than 100 bridal robes and artifacts related to royal weddings of the Joseon era, including a bridal robe worn by Princess Bogon (1818-1832) shown above, will be on display at the National Palace Museum of Korea in Seoul, Friday to Dec. 13 as part of an exhibition entitled "Blooming Hwarot: Bridal Robes of the Joseon Royal Court."
Also on display will be a bridal robe from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the conservation of which was made possible by a 100 million won donation from RM of BTS.
With elaborate embroidery and gold gilt decorations on safflower-dyed red silk, the purest red available at the time, the hwarot showcases exceptional craftsmanship. (Yonhap)
