||Intangible Cultural Heritage / Traditional Performing Arts / Music
Jeju Island is also known as Samdado Island because it has a lot of wind, stones, and women. It is widely known as a treasure trove of folk songs, as many folk songs are also handed down depending on the type of occupation.
Folk folk songs and popular folk songs sung in Jeju Island are divided into various types of occupations of people singing folk songs, such as farming, fishing, work singing, ritual singing, women's songs and children's songs, and popular miscellaneous songs.
The sounds of farming include "Sadae Sori" and "Stamping Sori," while the sounds of fishing include "Sound of rowing" and "Sound of Anchovy Frying." Some of the sounds you sing while you work include Whale Sound, Phlegm, and Bangat-Rolling Sound, while others include Haengsang-Sori, DalguSori, and Flower Flame. Women's songs and children's songs include "Song of Living in the House," "Baby Funny," and "Song of the Mother." Some of the miscellaneous items are Odolttogi, Yi Hongtaryeong, and Seowo Jetsori.
Jeju folk songs are noteworthy in that there are many labor songs sung while working, and folk songs sung by women and women are common. Songs also use a lot of unusual Jeju dialect, and are more sad than folk songs in Gyeonggi Province. Jeju folk songs express a feeling of regret, creating a different atmosphere.
