    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.

    Nakyangchun is a court music that combines Pyeonjong and Pyeongyeong percussion instruments in the formation of a wind ensemble. Unlike traditional music, which is rich in Nonghyeon and Sijimse, Nakyangchun's melody progresses relatively simply without decoration, giving a classical feeling. The harmony of Pyeonjong and Pyeongyeong percussion instruments, Changsha, where several musicians sing poems, and the melody centered on Dangpiri provide the unique charm of Nakyangchun Bay.

    Chuta, Gilgunak, Giltaryeong, and other music are called Haengak, which is played during walking. Therefore, it is played mainly with wind instruments and percussion instruments. For this reason, these songs have powerful, cheerful, and vigorous music.

    However, recently there has been a practice of playing stringed instruments to these music, and it has become common to see them play orchestral music instead of focusing on wind and percussion. In addition to the piri, daegeum, haegeum, janggu, as well as gayageum, geomungo, and yanggeum. The delicacy of string music makes it look different from the traditional strong and vigorous chwita.
