BTS have just released the teaser for "IDOL" featuring them in hanbok (traditional Korean dress) while also rocking sneakers and modern touches.

For those who don't know, hanbok is traditional Korean dress for semi-formal and formal occasions like festivals and ceremonies. Hanbok usually refers to clothing from the Joseon period and it was worn daily in Korean society up until about 100 years ago.
