The video has received nearly 500,000 hits.On March 8 last year, @Shiyin gave an interview to VOGUE magazine about Hanfu culture.There are also a number of hanfu garments, such as a long-necked robe, a horse-faced skirt and a tufted fan.The VOGUE Instagram post used a photo from that story.In recent years, Korea has repeatedly hyped Hanfu and porcelain Hanfu.In the past, many Korean netizens argued that Hanbok originated from Hanbok in the hanbok incident of “Shining warm hanbok” and the Hat incident of “Guang · Yu”.Not only Hanfu, but also Korean traditional clothing.Last September, Xu Jingde, a professor at Sungshin Women’s University in South Korea, wrote a letter to Baidu protesting that Traditional Korean clothing had been labeled as “Korean traditional clothing” by Baidu Baike and listed as “one of China’s national intangible cultural heritage.”After reviewing all kinds of materials including historical documents and objects, hanbok was refuted by saying, Hanbok was formed in the Lee Dynasty of Korea, corresponding to the Ming Dynasty of China.The clothing of the Korean royal family was given by the Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, known as the Great Ming dynasty ‘gifu’.In the process of cultural exchange, Hanbok learned and used many characteristics of Ming dynasty costumes for reference.In other words, ancient Korea did not have its own dress system. It was only by improving the Ming dynasty dress that the costumes in ancient Korean dramas were formed.”In addition, famous South Korean fashion designer Chang Myeong-sook also said in a variety show that South Korean clothes came from China, and the dress style of the South Korean king should be on the same level as that of the son of the Chinese emperor.After the VOGUE incident caught the attention of Chinese netizens, many responded in the comment section to these attacks smearing South Korean netizens in China.History was taught to a group of South Korean netizens in Chinese, English and Korean.”Successive dynasties on the Korean Peninsula were under the direct rule of Chinese dynasties for a long time, or were reduced to vassal states…”Japanese netizens also claimed that South Korea steals a lot of culture from China and Japan to shape its own national identity and “overcome its sense of inferiority.”VOGUE instagram comments screenshot from @Shenzhen Xiaotian This article is an exclusive article, shall not be reproduced without authorization.
