- About the Author
Lee Dabin was born in Korea in 1992. At a young age, Lee saw the hanbok introduced in historical TV dramas and fell in love. With that, she began drawing hanbok. In an effort to have hanbok be more of a part of her everyday life, she began illustrating fusion hanbok of her own design. Even as her parents pressured her to get "a real job," she continued on with her illustrations, which brought in huge numbers of fans. Collaborating with a hanbok company, she even produced some of her own designs. This has now become her true profession, and Lee now is a professional fushion hanbok illustrator and designer.
