Revised Romanizationhwagwan

Hwagwan is a type of Korean coronet worn by women, traditionally for ceremonial occasions such as weddings. It is similar to the jokduri in shape and function, but the hwagan is more elaborate.[1][2][3][4]

The hwagwan is slightly larger than 'jokduri' and served to emphasize beauty by decorating gold, bichui and pearls on cloth.[5]
