Welcome to the world of Dang'ui

After watching Dong Yi, I've become interested in Dang'ui. Have you ever heard of Dang'ui? =D Dang'ui is an upper garment for women from royalty, princesses, queen, royal consorts and noble women used during formal ceremonies during Joseon Dynasty. The undergarment is called chima. For the queen, Her Majesty's chima will have two layers of embroidered gold pattern. For the royal consorts, their chima will only have 1 layer of embroidered gold pattern. For the common people(noble), their dang'ui will be plain without any decoration.
