We call these clothes that we wear during funerals 상복 (Sangbok).
 
Family members of the deceased wear these, and your style differs depending on your gender. Men wear white burlap robes and the hats you saw on the dramas. Women on the other hand usually wear white hanbok with a white ribbon on their hair.
 
Nowdays however, it’s becoming more common to simply wear black suits instead of the traditional Sangboks. Most funerals I’ve been to have been with black suits. They’ll wear a yellow ribbon on their right arm to show that they are part of the deceased family.
