In traditional Korean society, married women used to brush their long hair into neat buns, and the Binyeo (i.e. pin) was used to hold the bun in place. The Binyeo, however, was more than just a practical accessory since Korean ancestors believed each Binyeo carried a special spell, which captured the wearer’s soul. In other words, they viewed it as a reflection of the woman’s inner self. If the women were to lose or take off her Binyeo, it was believed that she would lose her fidelity and dignity.
