    The sword dance of Korea is seen in various documents, including "The History of the Three Kingdoms," as the sword dance of the Silla Dynasty's Guanchang is Hyoshiim.

    However, during the Goryeo Dynasty, the appearance of Guanchang was replaced by a mask, and during the Joseon Dynasty, the female Guan Changmu was recorded, so the sword dance, which was a brave dance, seems to have changed into an elegant Yeo.

    After the Silla Dynasty, it was passed down or destroyed by government officials who had been subjugated to the royal court and government offices, and it was eventually established in Gwonburn nationwide.

    In Gyeongsangnam-do, Jinju, Tongyeong, and Dongnae were handed down from Jinju, but they disappeared with the abolition of Kwon Beon, but they have been restored from Jinju to this day.
