    ☆Cheolhyeongeum(CHG) was designed by Kim Young-chul, a master of Namsadangpae in the 1940s. It is played by pulling or tearing off eight iron strings with a bar.

    It has a strange sound like a combination of Geomungo, Gayageum, or Western guitar.

    Yoo Kyung-hwa, who played as a geomungo player and changed her direction to CHG, is said to have accepted CHG into her destiny since then after hearing a recording of Ahn Hyang-nyeon's performance with Lim Dong-sik, a master of geomungo.

    Sin Sacheolga(New four seasons' song) is a piece of music that sings about the scenery in all four seasons, and in this performance, you can see it playing around instrumental music.

    ☆ 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.
