Let’s face it. Hanbok may be beautiful to look at but cumbersome to wear. But 24-year-old CNe Choi is trying to change that. She has been attacked for allegedly debasing tradition — by adding her unique touches, from see-through materials to bold patterns.

Jieun Choi is staff writer at Korea Exposé. She has worked in the art industry and startups in Hong Kong and Australia.
