The appearance of a ‘Hanbok‘ in a Chinese game is causing controversy.
On the 8th, Twitter users pointed out that the clothing of Qing Dynasty characters in the Chinese mobile game ‘Law of Concubines‘ were very similar to Hanbok.
The game tells a story of a female protagonist entering the Qing Dynasty imperial family. The various costumes worn by female characters appear as game elements and ‘Hanbok’ appeared out of nowhere.
Some users pointed out that clothes worn by the male characters were also Korean traditional costumes.
Chinese publisher XD Global released the game last year targeting Korea so there was no controversy at the time but the controversy reignited after further scandals broke out with China claiming Korean ‘Hanbok’ and ‘Kimchi’ are Chinese caused public outrage.
Users raised suspicions they were trying to reveal its part of Chinese culture by slipping in the ‘Hanbok.’
