Since the mid-Joseon Dynasty this robe was a formal dress of the court. In the beginning it was a mourning robe for a queen. Since then it became a formal dress for a queen, a full dress for the woman of nobility, and a wedding dress for the common folk. A princess or a king's daughter by a concubine wore embroidered patches on the back and breast.
