Inspired by the hanbok dress and written in the poetic form of the Korean gasa (kasa). Features Namco Bandai’s Seong Mi-Na.
Gasa or Kasa is a Korean poetic form dating back to the 15th century during the Joseon Dynasty. They were popular with the yangban (nobles or aristocracy) women and were most commonly sung. It is syllabic with 7 to 8 syllable lines broken by a caesura (or pause) into groups of 3 to 4 syllables. There is no limit on the number of lines, so it could be as brief as a single verse or as many as twenty verses.
Hanbok is the traditional dress of Korea. The women’s hanbok is usually called the chima jeogori, which consists of the wrap-around skirt chima and the blouse shirt or jacket jeogori.
