hee~ I got a bunch of "vintage" hanbok a couple years ago from my grandmother's friend since they didn't fit her anymore. If I ever find my digicam, I'll take pics if anyone wants some.

http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=326825 <-- this is my "graduation present" summer hanbok - it was after I cropped my hair short... but when it was long, I had a matching long white embroidered ribbon for my braid. (You're supposed to wear the ribbon within your braid but I've found it easier to just sneak it in my hairtie.)

On a side note: I have become completely infatuated with the bujeonji (ribbon-hat thing) that the farmer's parade dancers use in samulnori. ( http://www.willi-stengel.de/image/RKI0101.jpg ) It just looks so fun. ^^ My grandmother finds it hilarious/ridiculous that I want one.

I'm sure there must be visual hanbok codes like there are with kimono (where raising or lowering your collar or your obi line a little bit, or wearing certain colors together, can completely change what your outfit is saying about you)... but what are they?
I kinda get that impression too... although not really matronly as... old. I'm not sure why but I think it's the colors.

the only thing i can think of the reason why they called u "mama mina" aka "mina um ma" is because maybe u had ur hair in a bun? cuz that usually symbolizes as married status as to having a pony braided tail symbolizes not married. its VERY common in korea where the mothers are called by their childrens name and added the word "mother" afterwords. therefore mina um ma, in this case mama mina.

Nope, I had the right hairdo. The guy told me it was definitelythe outfit, and definitely not just him. I thought it was intriguing.

My grandmother put one of the ribbons on the chogori through the loop and then tied the ribbons. That way, it hangs off the ribbons. You should put it on the right ribbon because that goes over the left ribbon and the norigae will show above the ribbons, not under it. ^^ I think... (it's been a while...)

Yup, just slide it over the ribbon before you tie the knot. It took me for-stinking-ever to figure that out. :P

I bought a hanbok jacket (chogori?) at a secondhand store awhile back, but it has no ribbons. It just has little ties on the inside to keep it closed, and then tiny loops on the front (one on each side). I assume the loops have a function, but I haven't the foggiest what it is.
