A plea to Korean American parents for Halloween: Please do not dress your children in traditional Korean garb for Halloween. Not to say all Korean American parents do this, but the Korean has definitely met enough young Korean Americans who had been traumatized by this experience.
Korean traditional dress is not some costume that you dust off for a day marked with the strange and the outlandish. It does not belong next to Spider-Man and fairies. It is for important, joyous occasions like Lunar New Year, Chuseok, weddings and birthdays. The Korean understands the sentiment, but please stop it. Instead of relegating it to a dumb holiday with silly dresses, have your children wear it seriously and proudly in more meaningful times.
