    This dance, also known as Sinkal dasinmu, is performed with hanji hanging in both hands at the end of a long bamboo called Sinkal.

    The dance, which is not much now, was passed down from the late Yi Dong-an, who was active in Namsadangpae, and was re-established by Moon Il-ji, and was later re-enacted by Gye Hyeon-sun at the National Folk Gugak Center.

    The abundant movement of the earth, which seems to stay in the air while soothing the soul, is characterized by its graceful, neatness and power as if it were heading to heaven.
