From the late 19th to the early 20th century, women from all walks of life favored to wear Jeogoris above the chest line. The length of women’s Jeogoris became so short that the bottom hemlines practically aligned with the chest line. The sleeve length also followed the trend and became shorter than usual, not long enough to reach the wrist line. Consequently, diverse Tosu (wristlets) were added onto women’s wardrobes as necessary substitution for the shortened sleeves and eventually became popular means of accessorizing. This new trend wearing Magoja or Baeja on top of tight Jeogori is easily recognized through the images of women in old photos from the late 20th century.
