☆Suryongeum means 'a dragon is reciting like playing with water.'
It is a instrumental version of the accompaniment melody of Pyeongrong, Gyerak, and Pyeonsakdaeyeop of Gagok Gye-myeonjo. Although it is mainly played as a double accompaniment of Danso and Saenghwang, it is sometimes performed by organizing Yanggeum and dae-ajaeng. When the clear Danso sounds rise through the clouds of the saenghwang sound, a harmonic instrument, you will be able to feel the beauty of harmony and communication that creates a wave of melody, with the sound of a heavy, low-pitched Dae-ajaeng.

The form of playing traditional music as instrumental music without singing is called "Jajin Hannip." Jajin Hannip is played in various forms, such as instrumental solo, duet, ensemble, and wind ensemble, and the texture of music varies depending on the composition of the instruments.
Originally, the music "Suryongeum" was imported from the Song Dynasty in Goryeo Dynasty and used as court music until the Joseon Dynasty, and is now a music that has been cut off from transmission. Today, among the various tunes of the song, Pyeongrong, Gyerak, and Pyeonsudaeyeop are called "Suryongeum" when they are played as instrumental music.
