    The 21C Korean Music Project, which was first held in 2007, began with the many changes the 21C Korean Music Project has attempted over the past decade or so with the production team's desire to encourage fresh and competent young gugak musicians to participate more actively and create high-quality creative Gugak. Through the 21C Korean Music Project, which begins anew with a dream of a new decade, it is hoped that Gugak will be a music enjoyed together regardless of gender or age by discovering competitive and high-quality works in the global market in a bold attempt to interpret the characteristics of traditional music, not difficult and hard to hear.

    Choi Ok-sam (1905-1956) is the Gayageum Sanjo that was passed down to Kim Chang-jo (1865-1994).

    The Gayageum Sanjo of Choeoksamryu, designated as Important Intangible Cultural Property No. 23 by the first month of Hamdong in 1980, consists of Dasareum, Jinyangjo, Jungmori, Jungjungmori, Jungjungmori, Jajinmori, and Hwimori.

    The composition of the melody is well-organized and has an excellent composition and correct tone. The melody used in this production is based on the melody of pansori and Namdo-pung, and the contrast between tension and relaxation is clear, so it has a relationship between yin and yang.

    It is also characterized by the fact that the relationship between the rhythms is clear, and that they have a heavy and deep taste by refraining from expressing their feelings hastily.

    The situational style of the Choi Ok-samryu Gayageum Sanjo requires heavy and restrained, and is generally powerful and masculine. The gayageumsanjo, the three most famous Korean traditional musical instruments currently played, takes about 50 minutes to play.

    Heungbo is the center of pansori "Heungbo," which sings the story of Heungbo, who was poor, getting rich.

    Heungbo carefully planted the seeds that the swallow gave him, and even when the Chuseok holiday approaches, Heungbo's family, who have nothing to eat, burns the gourd to cook and eat it.


    Unexpectedly, the story is about money and rice in the first gourd, fabrics in the second gourd, and carpenters who will build houses in the third gourd come out and become rich in the morning.

    Because various situations develop rapidly, there are many dramatic transitions, and various editorials are popular with the audience due to their cute musical arrangements.
    On the other hand, this section is also known as Heungbo-batting, which is distinguished from "Nolbo-batting."
