    Later, Kim Jukpa refined the gayageum sanjo rhythms learned from his grandfather and master Han Seong-gi, and added her own melody and rhythm to complete the 55-minute-long Kim Jukpa ryu(style) gayageum Sanjo.

    ☆Kang Tae-hong was taught by Kim Chang-jo and added the melody himself. It's Jangdan was composed of Jinyangjo, Jungmori, Jungjungmori, Jajinmori, and Hwimori. After 1950, Sesanjoshi (also known as Danmori) was added.

    This music feel more cheerful compared to other styles of sanjos by producing a 'e' as 'f' in most Ujo melodies, and pressing 'd' a pitch or one and a half pitch higher in Gyemyeonjo melodies (if expressed as a musical note of Western music for convenience.)

    It's differentiated by complicated and irregular melody and frequent offbeat.
