Do you have any memorable Halloween experiences?🎃


In today’s post, let’s find out how to say “to dress in costumes” in Korean!

✔ 코스프레 is short for ‘코스튬 플레이 (costume play)’, which means ‘to dress in costumes’.


Halloween costumes are common in vibrant streets, but unlike Western countries where people go trick-or-treating, costumes in Korea are mainly for festivals and enjoying the atmosphere.
