Gyeonggi-do Intangible Cultural Property No.56 Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance +
||Intangible Cultural Property
The Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance, which is performed by wearing a cone hat and making fun of Sogo, was part of a cheerful nongak, a folk dance embodying the sogo sticks inserted into nongak in Gyeonggi Province.
However, rather than feeling that Nongak overlaps with its roughness or excitement, the movement is soft, and even the sogo in the hand is as beautiful as if it were part of the hand. It is a man's dance because his feet and hands are refined and quiet, but the joy of seeing a dance is great.
Unlike other regions, it is not only organized by the talented people, but also there is a movement only in this dance. They include "Saekgyeongbuk," which is a mirror-looking movement, "Jegibook," which is a leg movement, and "Kkuri Book," which is a movement that is like winding thread. There is a record of the dance with flowers on top of the vestibule, and the palace wore a colorful cone hat.
The genealogy of Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance goes up to Kim In-ho, a dancer of Hwaseong Jaeincheong, and Hanseong Sunbo has a one-line record of "He is good at rope riding and even jesting in pansori, and he is especially good at bucking dance."
Lee Dong-an, the owner of the Bal Tal Tal Talent, was taught about 30 traditional dances and rhythms by Kim In-ho, which led to Jeong In-sam, the owner of the Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance. Jeong In-sam's Sogo dance features clear dance moves and accurate composition.
