Songpa Dari Bapgi No.3 Intangible Cultural Property of Seoul Metropolitan Government +
||Intangible Cultural Property
Bridge-walking was played on the fifteenth day of the first lunar month, and came from the religious custom that if a stream steps on the bridge as much as its age, it will not get sick on the bridge, and not only will it defeat all disasters but also bring good luck. In particular, the strong notion that foot-walking does not cause leg disease in Korea is a folk belief that the pronunciation of legs and legs is the same, and it seems to be the result of the language's playfulness. Bridge-walking is also known as dapgyo or dapgyo nori, or bridge-bending in Gangneung.
The records show that the bridge-walking play was very important to the people from noble families to the common people, and that the four gates were not closed when the bridge was played. As the number of bridges in Jangan was very small, the aristocrats were reluctant to hang out with the common people, so they told them to step on the bridge on the evening of the 14th, the day before, and the women stepped on the bridge on the evening of the 16th. In groups, people sang songs and danced to the bridge, and in the midst of the chaos, the character of the play group gradually changed and the play group was organized separately, creating a sense of entertainment. Among them, Songpa Dari Bapgi is characterized by outstanding dance moves.
Bridge-walking Nori is one of the most popular folk games in Korea since the Goryeo Dynasty, and it is a folk game that contains the feelings of life of the Korean people.
