    lacquer shall be applied to a wooden bowl, etc. with a colouring agent, drying, etc. in lacquer gin to keep it from rotting and glossing, and a person with the technique of lacquer and its functions shall be referred to as lacquer paste shall be referred to as lacquer paste.

    It is estimated that lacquer, which is handed down in Namwon-si, was the foundation of Shilsangsa Temple in Jirisan Mountain, and its origin was achieved by making woodcrafts such as bowls and jegae for the Buddha. After that, research and technology were developed by Yang Ki-soo, a natural lacquerware master, when Korea's first woodworking school was established during the Japanese Colonial Period.

    Depending on how sap is collected, lacquer is made in various colors, including raw paint and painting, with natural lacquer gin, while painted craftsmanship has a subtle brown color as it ages. In addition, the products completed through the painting of chaebol up to 67 times have a very good effect on desiccation, waterproofing, insect repellent, and polishing.

    Kim Eul-saeng of Namwon and Lee Eui-sik of Jeonju, who have been running three generations of lacquerware, have passed down the wood painting business to continue the tradition of lacquer techniques.

    "Nakhwa" refers to a craftsman who has the skill and ability to draw pictures of paper, wood, leather, etc. by using indoneses.

    The origin of Korea's fall paintings can be found in the "Nakhwa Transformation" contained in the "Oju Yeonmunjangjeonsango" written by Yi Gyu-gyeong (1788-1863), a realist of the late Joseon Dynasty, and has been passed down around the Imsil area of Jeollabuk-do since the early 19th century.

    The basic painting technique in Korea is not much different from the traditional painting technique because it is based on traditional painting. However, there is a unique difference in that various compliance methods such as Bubyeokjun and Woo Jeomjun of Oriental painting are expressed with indu instead of brushes, and the ink jokes shown in ink paintings are also expressed with indu. In this regard, Nakhwajang's skill in expressing skilled handwork and subtle jokes dealing with the pharynx and fire is important.

    Nongyo is a song that is sung to forget fatigue and improve efficiency while working on rice paddies and fields, also known as "deulsong" or "farming sound." Singing individually or collectively as one of the folk songs, the song may vary depending on the region.

    Yeongdong's "Design-ri Nongyo" is a song that has been passed down from mouth to mouth since a long time ago, with the sound of mochi, rice planting, and rice paddies. Mochi is a song that is sung while steaming rice seedlings and planting rice seedlings. Non-maegi songs are divided into two types, a cho-beol-mae-gi and a du-beol-mae-gi, which are sung by many people when a person carries a catfish. The catfish is responsible for meaningful content, and the receiver is responsible for meaningless margin. These differences result from different behaviors in labor.

    Yeongdong Design-ri Nongyo is a song that originated geographically close to Jeollabuk-do and Gyeongsangbuk-do, and the rhythms of Nongyo are mixed in color.

    The Jinan Plateau, called the roof of Honam, is a treasure house of the Kiln Site. Jinan County, North Jeolla Province, also had the highest concentration of pottery on the Jinan Plateau, where onggi production was brisk due to the large amount of clay and abundant firewood. The geopolitical advantage or dynamism as a cultural contact area is inherent in the Onggi culture of the Jinan Plateau area, which is revealed specifically in the Onggi Point custom and the formation of Onggi.

    Sonnae Onggi, Pyeongjang-ri, Baegun-myeon, Jinan-gun, Jeonbuk, is also in line with the tradition of the Jinan Plateau ceramic culture, and the historical and sustainability of the local Onggi related to the village's geographical name is still valid to this day, making it a representative Onggi point that has been producing the Jinan Plateau-type Onggi.

    When discussing traditional Korean dance, salpuri dance, Buddhist dance, dance dance, dance, and Taepyeongmu are mentioned as representative examples. These dances are often divided into folk dances or folk dances, and they are distinguished from court dances and ceremonial dances. Although the name ' towel dance' has been arranged earlier, it is called the Salpul dance or mouth dance at the site. The towel dance is a distinctly distinct traditional dance, and the classification, research, and preservation of it are insufficient. Therefore, Shin Kwan-chul's towel dance will play a very important role in the history of dance research.

    The towel dance was so diverse that all sons-in-law of the time, including hand gestures and foot gestures, can see all the dance moves inherent in Korean traditional dance. Another important part of the dance should be the beauty of the giraffes and the appearance of the giraffe with a smile and a wink of sarcasm, and there was no one who could not help but fall in love with them. The towel dance is a dance in which you can see the beauty of a giraffe who shows off her various talents.

    The towel dance is characterized by the use of Gyeonggi Gutgeori and Jajinmori music. The characteristic of the music accompaniment seems to be that Han Sung-joon's main stage was Gyeongseong. However, these days, people use the word "gum" attached to Sinawe in Namdo. This is because Han Sung-joon's dance is the dance of South Korea. The level of expression in which the movement of the foot, ankle movement, knee movement, hip movement, hip breast movement, head movement, hand movement, arm movement, walking movement, spinning movement, and sitting and standing movement are divided into the movement of the head, contains emotional expression that cannot be seen in other dances.
