Byeolsingut refers to a rite to pray to Seonghwang (Seonang), the guardian of the village, every three, five, or ten years for a good harvest of peace and farming in the village.
About 500 years ago, Hahoe Village in Andong, North Gyeongsang Province, performed a byeolsingut to Emperor Mujinsaeng on the fifteenth day of the New Year (December 15) every 10 years, and played mask games to entertain him along with the exorcism.
Hahoebyeolsingut TalNori consists of eight madangs of Mudong Madang, Jujumadang, Baekjeong Madang, Halmi Madang, Pagye Seung Madang, Yangban, Seonbi Madang, Honrye Madang, and Sinbang Madang.
Before the game begins, the day after the beginning of the first lunar month, if you go up to the cathedral, grab the descending pole with the sugar droplets, and lower the Holy Spirit, you move the sugar droplets to the Seonghwangdae and come down from the mountain. If Seonghwangdae and Naerimdae are built against the eaves of a verb, the play begins.
The characters include Ju Ji-seung, Gaksi, Jung, Yangban, Seonbi, Cho Rang-i, Imae, Bunae, Baekjeong, and Halmi. The book is based on ridicule of Pagye-seung and biting satire and interpretation of the nobleman.
Hahoe Byeolsingut TalNori has a ritualistic nature. In particular, Gaksital is believed to be a substitute for Seonghwangsin, and only Byeolsingut is to be seen. When taking it out, the ritual must be performed.
The masks used for the game were made of 11 kinds of 10 types of duckwood, including jija mask, and the original was designated as Hahoe mask and Byeongsan mask (National Treasure No. 121) in 1964 by applying lacquer and pigments in two or three layers.
The accompaniment of mask play is performed by a pungmul player with a gong-gwaengi at the center, and dance moves with a little bit of dance moves mixed with improvisation and routine movements.
Hahoe Byeolsingut TalNori is characterized by the lack of a back-to-back party enjoyed by burning masks, and is valuable as a valuable source of information on the origin and origin of mask dramas in Korea.
