Why this is a
Masterpiece

It represents the clothes worn by upper-class men and scholars.

History of the Object
In the past, it was known as clothing for a mountain wizard, a spiritual guide, or a scholar. The unique style of hakchangui has a black strip around the collar and at the end of the sleeves. Later, a hakchangui was generally worn by noblemen as everyday clothing and by envoys as well. It was also used to shroud a corpse. This piece is pale yellow, consists of a single layer of cloth, and has wide sleeves. It is cut wide at the back and sides so that one could move comfortably when wearing it. The black line at the edge of the robe provides a lively contrast with the pale yellow cloth and gives the robe a look of neatness and elegance.
