Since ancient times, Korean people held a exorcism rite to solve the bad luck of the year, where shamans improvised a dance to relieve bad energy, called Salpul Dance, Hutton Dance, mouth Dance, towel dance, and Jeokheungmu.

According to legend, Dosolga of the Silla Dynasty was regarded as a butchery and apricot, and Sinawe (Namdo Muak) was associated with the family of the four monks.

The dancer wears a hairpin with fine hair and a white skirt, and holds a white towel for stylishness and emotional expansion. He plays Sinawi on the Salpuri rhythm, but dances as accompaniment to the flute, daegeum, janggu, ajaeng, and drums.

Salpuri Dance is a dance of Namdo Dance with a long history, and Kwon Myeong-hwa continues to dance.
