“Corean Beauty”    A young ‘kisaeng’ (singing girl) in full Korean traditional dress, ca. 1904. Korean ‘kisaeng’, or singing girls, dressed up for singing and dancing. A ‘Kisaeng’s’ social position was among the lowest in the traditional Korean class system. Their daughters also became ‘kisaeng’ and their sons became slaves. The art of entertaining of the ‘kisaeng’ is analogous to the Japanese geisha.     Willard Straight Collection, Cornell University

School girls with big hats, Pyŏngyang, early 1900s. Source: General Commission on Archives and History of the United Methodist Church, Madison, NJ. The relatively weak grip of Confucian culture outside Seoul, especially in northern Korea, resulted in looser gender restrictions. Taken in a church compound, the photo demonstrates a regional variation of women’s outdoor clothing, hats called puny
