Fujin or bokgeon (hanja: 幅巾; Hangul: 복건) is a type of guanmao (冠帽), a Chinese men’s traditional headgear made from a black fabric. It was usually worn with Shenyi in the Ming Dynasty and Joseon period of Korea. Though it was initially worn only during important events, it was worn by most men of high-standing by the Joseon period. Members of the scholar-official class decorated their fujin with gold leaf.[1]
