    Music of the same type as crude music played in the court or in the private sector.

    <Yeongsan Recitation상 includes the gale wind (Hyeonak Yeongsan Recitation) and the gale wind (Samhyeon Yeongsan Recitation), and the flat tide that transforms the gale wind down to four degrees. The term "Yeongsanhoesang" refers to Hyeonak Yeongsanhoesang, which is a type of string wind, which is also called Geomungohoesang because Geomungo forms the center of its melody.

    In principle, musical instruments for Hyeonak Yeongsanho are composed of Geomungo 1, Gayatgo 1, Haegeum 1, Danso 1, Sepiri 1, Jeotdae 1, and Janggu 1. In some cases, the amount of money is collected.

    Besides these small-scale compositions, the flute uses a low-volume sepirie, and the stir is mainly played by low-spirits and flatness, so it harmonizes with the string instrument and shows a kind of chamber music. The janggu is also playing the game without hitting the background, and Haegeum moves the original to a gat to reduce the volume of the music by reducing resonance. The Hyeonak Yeongsan Hoesang consists of nine pieces of music, including Yeongyeongsan Mountain, Jungyeongsan Mountain, Seyeongsan Mountain, Tapdeuli, Samhyeon Dodry, Hayundodry, Yeombuldodry, Taryeong, and Gunak, and it is called the folk music statue to play nine songs. Also, it is known as hoesang that continuously plays the three songs of Surimyeon, Yangcheong, and Ujodori on top of the nine songs.

    Julpungnyu in the styles of Kim Juk-pa

    Hyeonak Yeongsanhoesang, known as "Yeongsanhoesang" or "Julpungryu," was developed from the scholars' pungryubang of the late Joseon Dynasty and passed down to this day. Depending on the region and type of transmission, it is divided into the national Gugak Center's, local's, and Sanjo master's pungryu. Traditional Korean traditional music was passed down around Seoul, using the legal capital, while other local customs and master's customs were performed in various provinces using the Sanjo gayageum.

    From the gayageum masters Kim Chang-jo, Han Sook-gu, Han Soo-dong, Han Seong-gi, Choi Mak-dong, Sim Sang-gun, Kim Yun-deok, and Seong Geum-yeon, the Sanjo masters were also well versed in the arts, and Jukpa was also a master of the Sanjo, and played bonpungnyu(Dasureum-gunak) and the duitpungryu (Cheonnyeonmanse, Gutgeori).

    Jukpa said, "In principle, the technique of playing pungnyu is the same as Sanjo, but the Nonghyeon is not deep or heavy, so you should ride it without being messy and also ride it refreshingly." Among the customs handed down to Kim Chang-jo, Kim Juk-pa and Moon Jae-sook, styles of Kim Juk-pas is consisted of "Dasureum-Hahyun-Yeombul-Gunak" and "Gye-myeon, Glgeyangcheong-Ujo-Gutgeori." You can see the spirit of the old masters who wanted to look at "pungryu" with an artificial and restrained gaze, not focusing on the feelings of human joy and anger.

    Recommended dance
    It is a traditional dance that is performed to gayageum Sanjo.

    In particular, this dance has a good tendency to dance in the Honam region, and it freely embodies the body's spirit and rhythm rather than artificial techniques or stereotyped movements.

    The work is considered to be a wide range of dance in terms of creativity because it expresses human free emotions in spontaneous movements based on traditional Korean dance.

    Cho Hung-dong Myungmu, who received the Sanjo dance from Kim Jin-gul as the first performance of the song, has newly choreographed the song in line with the tune of "Sanjo," a donation-linked song.

    Koreans have long held such events to prevent disasters and infectious diseases.

    In particular, on the first day of the first lunar month, a group of local pungmul members traveled around the village to perform pungmul rituals, which have been handed down to this day and have various forms.

    gayageum Byeongchanga Jeon Hai-ok and percussionist Choi Young-jin took the first step to Gwanghwamun Square, the capital and center of South Korea, to prevent new infectious diseases such as coronavirus and bad energy.

    They went around the five sides of Seoul, begging the gods to prevent misfortune, and praying for complete happiness by singing and performing.
