South Korea used to have actual fashion police who would go around measuring the miniskirt length of women
Under the presidency of Park Chang Hee, father of the current president, come out with a law under which miniskirts were banned in South Korea. Long in the 1970s, women were not allowed to wear skirts shorter than the government – approved length. Indecent exposure in public is considered a severe offense. Ladies were to wander in streets in trousers and jeans. The law was not only restricted to the fashion of Korean ladies but also consider men hair as important. All the men were not allowed to grow hair longer than a certain length. The law was made for such a thing because it was considered as something shameful, unimpressive and causing discomfort in public.
