Dara receives criticism from netizens for dressing up as Uhwudong on Chuseok

Dara is receiving criticism for the way she wore Hanbok on Chuseok.

On October 4, the former 2NE1member shared Chuseok greetings with a photo of her beautifully dressed in Hanbok with dark red lipstick.

It's common for Koreans to wear Hanbok on Chuseok holiday, however, Dara is being criticized for resembling Uhwudong.

Uhwudong is a scandalous figure of the Joseon Dynasty in the 15th century. She's a dancer, writer, artist, and poet from a noble family, however, she's more well-known for her days as kisaeng (anartist who entertains men, also referred to as prostitute in the modern definition).

She's often perceived as a very sexual figure. In fact, films depicting the life of Uhwudong are often 19+.

With this in mind, netizens found Dara's styling inappropriate for the holiday. Comments stated, "Uhwudong is a figure who was thecenter of sex scandals after her divorce and becoming a kisaeng. Does it make sense to be Uhwudong on Chuseok?", "Did she have to do the Uhwudong concept...Just a regular Hanbok would've been pretty", "Sigh... please... think for once..", "Wow she looks like a kisaeng", "Chuseok and Uhwudong don't get along", "She's so airheaded."

What are your thoughts on the criticism?
