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.
