Gwangmyeong Nongak is a nongak established on the modern basis of Gwangmyeong City, focusing on Cheolsan-dong, Soha-dong, and Hakon-dong under the current geographical conditions. Rice farming, nongak, and dure are closely related to each other, and this tradition of farming is related.

As a result, it becomes the foundation of Gwangmyeong Nongak. In the past, Gwangmyeong City was part of Siheung-gun, Gyeonggi-do. This area is wide and rice paddies are developed.

Gwangmyeong Nongak has the typical characteristics of Udari Nongak, so the characteristics of the rhythm and the engraving reflect the characteristics of Nongak in the Chungcheong area of Gyeonggi Province. The starting point may have originally originated from native nongak, but the current Gwangmyeong nongak cannot be denied that there are strong traces of tae nori nongak. The unique characteristics and identity of Yeonhui Nongak should be found in the book, as it is borrowed from the contents of the book and its specific name.

It is almost impossible to verify the aspect of Durepungjang or the seasonal nongak in January. Apart from the sincerity of the original form of nongak, it has the nature of nongak, which can be re-discussed from the angle of traditional re-declaration in the future.

Since the traditional foundation of Gwangmyeong Nongak exists in the form of rice paddy farming and the deep bottom of the sound of rice paddies, the indigenous foundation of Gwangmyeong Nongak, which is the medium, also indicates the traditional origin of Gwangmyeong Nongak. The fundamental reason for Gwangmyeong Nongak is that the traditional culture was not kept in the process of the new industrial city called Gwangmyeong. As a precedent showing the problems and possibilities of the rapidly changing industrialization society, we should pay attention to the aspects and changes of Gwangmyeong Nongak at the same time.
