    ☆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.
    - Mun Ju-seok, a curator at the National Gugak Center.

    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.

    It refers to a comprehensive stage in which a series of school affairs and Yeonhwa dance are performed after a ritual held to exorcise evil spirits in the royal court during the early Joseon Dynasty.

    Hak(crane) dance has been performed at royal ceremonies since the Goryeo Dynasty, and is the only dance in Korea to perform under the mask of a bird. Yeonhwa Daemu tells the story of two girls born with lotus wine, and they are thrilled by the king's virtues and repay their grace by dancing and singing.

    When two dancers with crane masks all over their bodies dance and peck at the two pre-installed flower peaks with their beaks, the lotus blossoms open, the girl pops out and the crane runs out in amazement. After that, the dance performed by two girls is Yeonhwa Daemu. In terms of performance, the two dances have been handed down for many years, forming inseparable relationships.

    For accompaniment music, Seryeongsan Mountain, Samhyundodry, and Taryeong are used for the school dance, while only court music is used in Yeonhwadaemu.☆
