"We expect to widely promote the hanbok and reaffirm hanbok's beauty by introducing hanbok that combine the unique beauty of traditional Korean [dress] along with the charm of Hallyu [Korean Wave] celebrities to both domestic and international audiences," the Culture Ministry said Friday.

"We will continue to make policy efforts, such as supporting small and medium-sized enterprises in developing diverse products, to advance the hanbok industry and [promote] hanbok."

Hanbok featured in the Culture Ministry's project will be available for viewing on starting Dec. 26. Videos of Suzy wearing the hanbok will also be released on the Korea Craft & Design Foundation's YouTube channel.
