a korean kisaeng, ca. 1910

“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
