Don’t you wish that vintage looks like Jang Man-wol (IU) in Hotel del Luna? Well, look no further. There’s a shop in the downtown of Seoul which provides rental of vintage clothing called “Kyungsung Clothes”.
Vintage Look like Jang Man-Wol (IU) in Hotel Del Luna
These days Hotel del Luna got the viewer’s attention because it’s a spooky romance story. It’s like the Korean drama Goblin but with opposite situations of the leading actors and actresses.
Hotel del Luna’s story is about Jang Man-wol (IU), the owner of the Hotel del Luna, a place for spirits who have just died which they can stay for a while before going to the other world. Jang Man-wol was cursed to live forever, so she ended up hiring Goo Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) to help her manage the hotel where she gave him a gift on this birthday with the ability to see and communicate with spirits.
Aside from the story, for the past 1000 years, Jang Man-wol has developed her vintage fashion statement which made the fans wait for it per episode.
Aside from hanbok, retro or vintage clothing rental experience become popular in Korea. The rental shop offers vintage clothes, accessories, and a backdrop. This time they have the Hotel del Luna backdrop where you can able to experience the drama’s location and Jang Man-wol feels.
Kyungsung Clothes is located in the neighborhood of Jong-no district in the city of Seoul. There are two outlets which are not far from each other but with different backdrops which you need to choose where you want to go. Minimum of 3 hours for 30,000 won and there are so many pretty dresses you can choose from and with complete accessories such as gloves, hair clip, hat, umbrella, bag, etc and for shoes, there’s an additional charge of 3,000 won.

If you are looking for something new aside from wearing a hanbok in Seoul, I recommend this vintage clothing rental shop for a change. It’s nice to walk in the alleys of Ikseon in this kind of clothes. It might be expensive but it won’t erase the photos and memories you can make once in a lifetime. Plus experiencing the Jang Man-wol fashion statement is priceless. If you are visiting Seoul, include this in your itinerary because the cafe near this rental shop is Hotel Seine Cafe, one of the filming locations of Hotel Del Luna.

I am actually hunting for that gold occasional wingchair coz it look fabulous inside the room. Would you know if there is part 2 of this series?
There’s no news about part 2 but if there is that would be fun because the last owner of the hotel was Kim Soo Hyun.
