Kee San="Kisaeng" or "Gisaeng." Most postcards of kisaeng from 1900-1910 show those who worked at the royal palace or various government offices (known as gwan'gi) in colorful robes or dance. After the gwan'gi system was abolished in 1908, images of kisaeng changed their focus to closeups of faces and physical features (Kwon 2005, pp. 231-232). Different forms of dress began to appear in photos after the 1910s. 1918-1918 East Asia - Imperial Postcard Collection, Lafayette College.
