Pansori is a stage art consisting of a singer, a drummer, and a pair of spectators. The one who sings makes sounds, lines, and gestures, and the one who plays drums according to the tune of the one who makes the sound leads to an exciting atmosphere.

Pansori is divided into East Pyeonje in the northeastern part of Jeolla-do, West Pyeonje in the southwestern part of Jeolla-do, and middle and high schools in Gyeonggi-do and Chungcheong-do according to its regional characteristics and genealogy. Originally, it was twelve yards, but almost disappeared during the Japanese Colonial Period. Only five yards of Chunhyangga, Simcheongga, Heungboga, Sugungga, and Jeokbyeokga remain until now. The rhythm used in pansori has several rhythms, such as the slow rhythm Jinyang, the average speed Jungmori, the faster Jungjungmori, the faster Jajinmori, and the very fast Hwimori, which are written according to the tense and leisurely dramatic situations shown in the editorial.

Namdo Pansori is a pansori that suits our people well and belongs to Seopyeonje. Han Ae-soon, the current holder of Namdo Pansori entertainment, is said to be good at using the traditional features of Seopyeonje, which is light in vocalization, long in tail of sound, and elaborately woven.
