    Born in Yeoju, Gyeonggi Province, Seo lost his mother when he was young and grew up in Gurye, South Jeolla Province, at the age of 8.

    He was taught gayageum Sanjo by his uncle Jeong Nam-ok, who is a windbreaker, and is said to have set up the framework of gayageum Sanjo before Kim Chang-jo at the age of nine.

    His production of gayageum has become a subject of research due to its high value in the history of Korean music, and is compared to the other line of gayageum Sancho, which is passed down mostly by Gyeomyun-gil.

    Kim Juk-pa (1911-1989), who was taught by his grandfather Kim Chang-chang (1856-1919), was passed down by his grandfather Han Seong-gi (1899-1950), his apprentice to Kim Chang-jo, forms the framework of the Kim Juk-pa-ryu gayageum production.

    Kim Ok-kyung (Kim Eun-hee, a student of Jeong Jeong-yeol) compares the characteristics of Kim Juk-pa's gayageum Sanjo, one of the most active sands currently played, with Kim So-hee (1917-1995), a half-brother of Kim Juk-pa, and once a girl's master singer, to the taste of gomguk, and the meaning of Sung Geum-yeon sancho was seasoned with the mountain.

    This deep taste of Kim Juk-pa comes from his five-graft method of schizophrenia, a combination of grandiose low notes, various group changes, and colorful vocal sounds.

    Meanwhile, the melody of the song is refined, woven, and composed by Kim Juk-pa, a woman for a long time, and also elaborates on Nonghyeon.

    "Pasakalia," a concerto of the gayageum Sanjo in the Gangtae Hongryu Period, combines the melody and rhythm of Sanjo, Korea's representative instrumental music, with Pasakalia, a variation of the Baroque period.

    Originally, Pasacalia is a form in which a diastolic variation is carried out in the high notes by repeating the same three-beat, eight-syllable low-pitched theme, in which the theme of low-pitched gayageum and Mars (Cm, AbM7, FM7, and Gm7) were added in reverse to prepare for the existing rheumatic gayageum melody.

    Jinyang Jojangdan's three-beat six-word structure and eight-word Parsakalia-style musical instruments are sometimes played by Jungmori rhythm, forming a musical instrument in different joints and sometimes matching each other.

    The first Seoju section presents a low-pitched theme and harmony, and the emergence of gayageum melody and the contending structure of the musical composition, but as the song progresses, the gayageum melody, and the low-pitched theme and harmony are integrated into one perfect harmony.

    Janggu dance is a dance in which a janggu is held obliquely around the shoulder and accompanied by various rhythms.

    It is an exciting dance in which a woman moves her feet lightly with a unique gait called a magpie's step, with a well-rounded waist around the women in line with folk songs such as Shingosan Taryeong, Cheongchunga, and Gyeongbokgung Taryeong.

    In 1991, Cho Hung-dong selected music as his first work, studied each dance move, and choreographed it to express the excitement and style of our woman in his collection.
