Absolutely gorgeous work, so very elegant and I'm especially engrossed by her lips (they look so painted and full!!)

Although the word is 'Kisaeng' just so you know ;D
And mind you Kisaeng wore their hair up and elaborately with elegant hair pins in them. They were very decorated in the day, the detail on them is hard to skip out if you look into it~!!!

Actually...hanbok (traditional korean dress) usually have two parts the jeogori or top and the chima or the skirt. The jeogori is usually a foot long or shorter depending on the wearer, so it would just about cover a woman's chest. Then the chima is tied above a woman's chest and is usually long enough to cover the woman's feet. So if when you visualize her without clothes (kinda), she does have feet, they were just hidden behind chima.

You're right! Kisaeng were high class prostitutes and they did entertain. Their lifestyle was like more like a Geisha's becasue they had more freedom and they weren't cooped up in the Yoshiwara distrect like the Oiran

Kisaeng, otherwise known as ginyeo, were prostitutes and entertainers. Similar, but more like an Oiran than geisha from the looks of it.

Geisha is Japanese. The correct term in Korean is Gisaeng.

Gisaeng, I think you mean. But you're right, there weren't Korean "geisha". There were comfort women during WWII, who were forced into slavery though. (Using heroin.)

And there were gisaeng during those times.

In society, gisaeng also performed a different social function and had a different status in Korean society than geisha have in Japan.
