    ☆ 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.
