    The 21C Korean Music Project, which was first held in 2007, began with the many changes the 21C Korean Music Project has attempted over the past decade or so with the production team's desire to encourage fresh and competent young gugak musicians to participate more actively and create high-quality creative Gugak. Through the 21C Korean Music Project, which begins anew with a dream of a new decade, it is hoped that Gugak will be a music enjoyed together regardless of gender or age by discovering competitive and high-quality works in the global market in a bold attempt to interpret the characteristics of traditional music, not difficult and hard to hear.

    Heungbo is the center of pansori "Heungbo," which sings the story of Heungbo, who was poor, getting rich.

    Heungbo carefully planted the seeds that the swallow gave him, and even when the Chuseok holiday approaches, Heungbo's family, who have nothing to eat, burns the gourd to cook and eat it.


    Unexpectedly, the story is about money and rice in the first gourd, fabrics in the second gourd, and carpenters who will build houses in the third gourd come out and become rich in the morning.

    Because various situations develop rapidly, there are many dramatic transitions, and various editorials are popular with the audience due to their cute musical arrangements.
    On the other hand, this section is also known as Heungbo-batting, which is distinguished from "Nolbo-batting."

    "Pyeongtaek Turtle Play" has long been handed down in more than 20 villages in Pyeongtaek.

    Every Chuseok, young people who visited the graves made turtle clothes out of sorghum leaves and went from house to house, which was born to ward off evil spirits and to pray for the good harvest of the village.

    It is also a traditional game that shows our exciting culture by sharing rice cakes and food with neighbors and promoting harmony and solidarity in the village.

    In particular, it won the grand prize at the Gyeonggi Folk arts Festival in 2013 and the silver prize at the Korean Folk arts Festival in 2014, becoming the representative folk game of Pyeongtaek.

    This shows that it is a folk game culture that inherits our own traditions, and is meaningful in that it can be enjoyed without any burden by all ages and men and women.

    This song was composed by Kim Young-jae, a master of Haegeum and Geomungo High School, in 1982. It is a solo song of Haegeum, which is composed of traditional music from Seodo, Yeongnam and Honam, and is played to the rhythm of Omori.

    at the beginning of the Mu rhythm, the melody of Menarijo in Gyeongsang-do is improvised, making it feel like listening to the improvised performance of the Mu rhythm, or "alap," prior to the main performance of Raga in India.

    It was followed by the improvisation of the Manari rhythm, which led to the sad melody of the Namdo Gye-myeon. It went back to the theme of Menarijo, and it was played with the heartfelt melody of Seodo jijang, and the theme melody was foreshadowed several times to the off-mori rhythm.
