For the 2015 Busan Hanbok Day, scheduled for Sept. 13, wear a hanbok (traditional Korean clothing) and walk along the beach.

Organized by voluntary regional college students, Busan Hanbok Day kicks off in the Haeundae Beach area on Sept. 13. The event was created in an effort to disseminate the beauty of the hanbok, which is already highly recognized worldwide.

Hanbok Day first started in Jeonju in 2012, and has spread out throughout the nation – in Daegu, Ulsan and Daejon – garnering a stellar response.

On Busan Hanbok Day, which runs from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Sept. 13, there will be plenty of fun and diverse sights to see, including fashion shows and performances given by hanbok-clad artists.

To participate in the fun-packed event, dress up in the eponymous costume and visit the venue on Haeundae Beach.

Tourists and locals can not only view the different styles of these colorful outfits, but rent one and try it on.

The event was positively received last year, when more than 1,000 people joined in and tried on hanbok in a splendid gradient of colors.

Busan Hanbok Day is a participatory event in which volunteers gather together through social media.

This year, experiential programs will also be on offer. There will be a number of booths and flea markets on site, selling calligraphy and postcards.

The event promotes the excellent quality of ancient Korean attire to move it to the mainstream.
