History:

Binyeo is hair ornament used in traditional Korean hairstyles. It is divided into chae (rod shape) and jam (∩ shape) styles.

According to the National Museum of Korea, binyeos were not merely worn by women but also by men to fix their sangtus (topknots) in place.

The following image shows a chae of the Goryeo period (918 – 1392) collected by the National Museum of Korea.
