    ☆ The wind makes the horned-holly tree dance and the branches collide with each other and sing Gwangju.

    On the middle of Yangnimsan Mountain in Yangnim-dong, Gwangju, there is a 400-year-old horned-holly tree.

    The appearance of the holly tree seems to harbor the history of Gwangju, facing various winds in one place.

    Inspired by this image, I drew it on the 25 string Gayageum.

    ☆ Yukjabaegi is a japga that reflects the characteristics of Jeolla-do music.

    As Susimga represents the western part of Korea, Yukjabaegi is loved by many people in the Jeolla-do region.

    This is because Yukujabaegi is a song that harmonizes well-organized melodies with lyrics that touch the heart.

    Originally, Yukjabaegi was a type of folk song used to be sung during field work, but it was refined by professional singers such as sadangpae and modern pansori clowns at the end of the Joseon Dynasty.

    As a result, Yukjabaegi became one of the most popular japga repertoire in the southern part of Korea.

    ☆The sound of Daego and Yonggo rings the heart informing heaven and earth about the birth of human life and pray for blessings.

    The various drum rhythms, which have subsided and swept away, express the dizziness and beauty of the world and allow the audience to feel excited and nervous by the dynamic and fragmented ensemble of the batters.

    The last piece left with the retirement of former National Dance Company artistic director Bae Jeong-hye, 'Bara Seonmudo' was created based on Bae Jung-hye's 12 dance breathing techniques and using 'Bara' as props to maximize them.

    ☆Sugungga is one of the five pansori batangs.

    When the Dragon King became ill, a terrapin came to the world to save the rabbit's liver for medicine and led the rabbit to the sea palace.

    However, the story is based on the pansori, which tells the story of a rabbit coming back to life by tricking the Dragon King. They are also called Rabbit Taryeong(Song), Byeoljubu(Terrapin) Taryeong, and Tobyeolga(Song of Rabbit and Terrapin).
