Thin belt made of threads twisted together to make a cord (dahoe) that was worn with outer garments such as dopo, jeonbok or changui (scholar’s robe).

A type of belt in the category of silk belts (sadae) consisting of a cord made with silken threads, sejodae also had tassels (sul) at either end, and for this reason it was also called sultti. It was worn around the waist and the rank of the wearer was distinguished by the color of the cord. The sejodae was one of the belts, including wondahoe (Kor. 원다회, Chin. 圓多繪, lit. round cord), gwangdahoe (flat cord), gakdae (Kor. 각대, Chin. 角帶, lit. horn belt), and yodae (Kor. 요대, Chin. 腰帶, lit. waist belt) that was worn with ceremonial and official attire or with everyday outer garments such as dopo (coat) and jeonbok (long military vest), the color differing according to the rank of the wearer. The ends were finished off with a strawberry tassel or bell tassel.

A belt worn by men of the Joseon Dynasty over their outer garments, the sejodae was generally worn at the chest, a little higher than the waist. It varied in length, shorter ones reaching 190 cm and longer ones even more than 4 m.
