    ☆Yeomyangchun is an instrumental variation from accompaniment for traditional Gagok genre. Originally Gagok is accompanied by geomungo, gayageum, sepiri, daegeum, haegeum and janggu, but it changes when instrumented; geomungo and gayageum is eliminated, hyangpiri substitutes sepiri, and ajaeng and jwago are added.

    Yeomyangchun is famous for its daegeum solo. It was named "Geosang-ak" because it was mainly played in the court banquets. It's rhythm and melody are structurally free, giving it a cool and clear feeling.
