    Park Jong-ki (1879-1947) was the founder of Daegeumsanjo.

    In addition to the genius musicality, the results, which were polished with steady efforts, were united in the calculation of daegeum. His musicality has been faithfully represented in the framework of Daegeumsanjo between 1929 and early 30 years.

    Park Jong-gi's Daegeumsanjo is characterized by the sound of the dune Sanjo based on pansori. This represented the two trends of Daegeumsanjo along with the Sainawi The Dune Sanjo in Gangbaekcheon Stream. In the first half of the 1900s, Park Jong-gi actively performed with many contemporary artists and participated in many music works, and the music that he played is still being delivered. Park Jong-gi's performance in various music sources shows the early appearance of Daegeum Sanjo.

    Park Jong-ki's "Jinyang of Daegeumsanjo" does not use a variety of group changes, but it faithfully reveals its artistry through its rich sound and is similar to the "Pansori" flow. In Jajinmori, which shows the height of splendor, the melody of Pansori Chunhyangga 'Going to the Military Command' (Columbia 40041-B) is melted. Here, it is confirmed that Park Jong-gi's "Daegeumsan Mountain" is the "Sound The Manang Sanjo," which is deeply related to Pansori. Park Jong-gi's Daegeumsanjo continued to Han Ju-hwan and Han Beom-su, followed by Seo Yong-seok, Lee Saeng-gang and Won Jang-hyeon Daegeumsanjo, which are now being continued.

    The Daegeum Sanjo, played today, is composed of Jinyang-Jungmori-Utmori, Jungmori, and Jajinmori, which were recorded in the mid-1930s, along with the off-mori melody of Park Jong-gi and Kang Tae-hong's Bong Jang-chi (Korai CM809).

    Sanjo is a piece of music that is in the form of instrumental solo music and is played along with Jangdan accompaniment such as Janggu and Buk.

    Sanjo began to be played with improvisational rhythms in the early days, but the musicality of the Sanjo master is maximized by the formation of a "long-dan frame" that moves from slow to fast, and the formation of various groups.

    Won Jang-hyeon was taught a short sanjo by Kim Dong-jin for a year, and the following year, he met Han Il-seop in 1969 and began his full-fledged Sanjo class until his death in 1973, continuing his studies for five years.

    The Daegeum Sanjo of Wonjanghyeon was created by adding the systematic and broad musical power of Won Jang-hyeon, who was passed down as Han Sook-gu, Won Sang-rok, and Won Kwang-jun to the melody Han Il-seop passed down in his later years.

    In addition to Ajaeng, Park Jong-sun is also well versed in Taepyeongso Sinawe.

    Han Il-seop's 10-minute-long sanjo was organized with his own rhythm and created the "Park Jong-ryu Ajaeng Sanjo" within 30 minutes.

    Choi Ok-sam (1905-1956) is the Gayageum Sanjo that was passed down to Kim Chang-jo (1865-1994).

    The Gayageum Sanjo of Choeoksamryu, designated as Important Intangible Cultural Property No. 23 by the first month of Hamdong in 1980, consists of Dasareum, Jinyangjo, Jungmori, Jungjungmori, Jungjungmori, Jajinmori, and Hwimori.

    The composition of the melody is well-organized and has an excellent composition and correct tone. The melody used in this production is based on the melody of pansori and Namdo-pung, and the contrast between tension and relaxation is clear, so it has a relationship between yin and yang.

    It is also characterized by the fact that the relationship between the rhythms is clear, and that they have a heavy and deep taste by refraining from expressing their feelings hastily.

    The situational style of the Choi Ok-samryu Gayageum Sanjo requires heavy and restrained, and is generally powerful and masculine. The gayageumsanjo, the three most famous Korean traditional musical instruments currently played, takes about 50 minutes to play.

    Gayageum Sanjo is a very simple and strong one with a unique body that is different from any other Gayageum Sanjo, which is now commonly played at this is a very simple and strong one.

    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.

    Daegeum is a horizontal line that represents Korea.

    It is said that Silla had Samjuk, called Daegeum, Junggeum, and Salt.

    Among them, the payments have continued to this day and night. As shown in the Manpa-style folktale, Daegeum has the image of a musical instrument that benefits the world with a mysterious instrument.

    The daegeum includes the daegeum of Jeongak and Sanjo.

    Compared to Jeongakdaegeum, Sanjo Daegeum is relatively short in length. Therefore, there is a high sound.

    The charm of daegeum lies in the blue sky. It is the echo of a thin reed membrane.

    The Park Jong-gi Daegeumsanjo is a mountain of long-standing origin. It contains the native and circular sentiments of Jindo, Jeolla-do.

    Haegeumsanjo is divided into two major mountain ranges, Jiyeonghui-ryu Haegeumsanjo and Hanbeom-su-ryu Haegeumsanjo, which have recently been newly formed by Seo Yong-seok and Kim Young-jae.

    Ji Young-hee took over the rhythms of Ji Yong-gu and Kim Duk-jin, who were masters of the Japanese colonial era haegeumsanjo, and tried to form a well-organized haegeumsanjo. As a result, she formed the so-called Jiyeonghui haegeumsanjo, which is delicate, curved, and light, cheerful, and fun like Gyeonggi folk songs.
