Talented Artist Draws Disney Princesses in Korean Hanboks

Back in 2014, we showed you the talented work of Korean artist and illustrator Na Young Wu, who goes by the handle Obsidian (@obsidian00) on Twitter. More specifically, we were taken by her illustrations which re-imagined Western fairytales as if they had happened in Korea.

Well, she wasn’t the only artist who wanted to see Disney Princesses in traditional Korean hanboks. Another talented Korean artist, Byajae (뱌재@rcbboy0527), recently showed off some skills by re-imagining Rapunzel, Merida, Elsa and Anna dressed up in the traditional Korean dress.

And it’s not just Disney Princesses. Byajae also re-imagined Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians and Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon in the traditional Korean robes.

Fans have fallen in love with the images so much that Byajae has turned the illustrations into postcards. For just roughly $5, you can get a set of all six designs. Well, there’s one catch. Byajae doesn’t ship internationally so you’ll have to grab a plane ticket to Korea if you want these postcards. If that’s not happening anytime, just feast your eyes on his official blog and Twitter.
