    "Cheongseong Jajin Leaf" is a solo piece played only by wind instruments such as daegeum and salt, also known as "Yocheonsun Iljigok."

    It is also called "Cheongseonggok" because of its clear, beautiful, long, and clear sound.

    There are also symbolic titles such as "Yocheon-sun Ilgok" and "Hwe-pal-seon" that are extremely peaceful and reflective.

    It is a variation of a song that increases the melody of "Taejim" by 2 degrees and then raises it back to the octave to add a pimple or a certain note longer.

    The Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance, which is performed by wearing a cone hat and making fun of Sogo, was part of a cheerful nongak, a folk dance embodying the sogo sticks inserted into nongak in Gyeonggi Province.

    However, rather than feeling that Nongak overlaps with its roughness or excitement, the movement is soft, and even the sogo in the hand is as beautiful as if it were part of the hand. It is a man's dance because his feet and hands are refined and quiet, but the joy of seeing a dance is great.

    Unlike other regions, it is not only organized by the talented people, but also there is a movement only in this dance. They include "Saekgyeongbuk," which is a mirror-looking movement, "Jegibook," which is a leg movement, and "Kkuri Book," which is a movement that is like winding thread. There is a record of the dance with flowers on top of the vestibule, and the palace wore a colorful cone hat.

    The genealogy of Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance goes up to Kim In-ho, a dancer of Hwaseong Jaeincheong, and Hanseong Sunbo has a one-line record of "He is good at rope riding and even jesting in pansori, and he is especially good at bucking dance."

    Lee Dong-an, the owner of the Bal Tal Tal Talent, was taught about 30 traditional dances and rhythms by Kim In-ho, which led to Jeong In-sam, the owner of the Gyeonggi Gokal Sogo Dance. Jeong In-sam's Sogo dance features clear dance moves and accurate composition.

    A palace market is a person who has the ability to make bows and arrows. A person who makes bows is called a mayor who makes bows and arrows.

    Arrows were used in wooden, iron, pyeonjeon, donggaesal, Janggunjeon, and Sejeon. However, the most commonly used ones are yuyeopjeon, which was used for shamanism and practice during the Joseon Dynasty. The yuyeopjeon is about 85cm long and weighs 26.25g (7 sentences), but there are some differences depending on the average person and the bow. Ingredients should be used to surround the sari tree oroni, which will be used to make bamboo and oni, with a pheasant feel, a timbre, and a boulevard. Tools should be equipped with saws, julkal, awl, joldae, indu, scale, pride, mercy, whole grass, crucible, ear-shaped glasses, jolkajabi, brazier, and wooden tongs. When the arrow is completed with the above materials and tools, the last touch is to grab the pawn and rub it with a hammer to polish it. However, there are two types of arrows, so there is a distinction between the right hand and the left hand for the left hand bow.

    Yang Tae-hyun entered the Joseon Dynasty at the age of 16 as a student of Jo Myeong-je (the mayor of an important intangible cultural asset) and Cho Gi-seon, who holds the function of the market, and has been continuing to produce traditional bamboo poems for about 40 years.

    The carpenter, who is a craftsman dealing with wood, is divided into a ranch that builds palaces, temples, or houses, as well as a small ranch that makes furniture, such as a wardrobe, door-gaps, tables, and soban, and other wooden crafts. Building wood refers to the manufacture of small facilities attached to buildings, such as windows, handrails, and closures.

    Currently designated as an intangible cultural asset in Gyeonggi Province, Kim Soon-ki is a small ranch specializing in traditional windows and doors. He uses red pine or yuksong when he can't find the spruce fruit, Chumok or Choonhyangmok. The windows he produced include the Wanja Changshi, the Three-Year-Old Gate, the Rainbow Gate, and the Flower Salmun.

    To make a flower pattern complete with the best floral print among the windows, several pieces must be cut and combined. Instead of simply cutting and attaching them according to the shape, they make and combine the doorknob in a way that crosses the bite.

    He participated in the restoration of Confucian schools, such as Gyeongbokgung palace, Suwonhyanggyo Local Confucian School, and Hongcheonhyanggyo Local Confucian School, as well as temples and shrines, and produced windows and doors of Seojangdae and Hwahongmun in the Hwaseong Restoration Project.

    Changdeokgung palace was the second royal villa built following the construction of Gyeongbokgung palace in 1405. It was the principal palace for many kings of the Joseon dynasty, and is the most well-preserved of the five remaining royal Joseon palaces. The palace grounds are comprised of a public palace area, a royal family residence building, and the rear garden. Known as a place of rest for the kings, the rear garden boasts a gigantic tree that is over 300 years old, a small pond and a pavilion.

    The palace gained importance starting from the time of Seongjong, the 9th king of Joseon, when a number of kings began using it as a place of residence. Unfortunately, the palace was burned down by angry citizens in 1592 when the royal family fled their abode during the Japanese invasion of Korea. Thanks to Gwanghaegun, the palace was restored in 1611. Even today, it houses a number of cultural treasures, such as Injeongjeon Hall, Daejojeon Hall, Seonjeongjeon Hall, and Nakseonjae Hall.

    Changdeokgung palace’s garden behind the inner hall, called the Secret Garden, was constructed during the reign of King Taejong and served as a resting place for the royal family members. The garden had formerly been called Bugwon and Geumwon, but was renamed Biwon Garden after King Gojong came into power. The garden was kept as natural as possible and was touched by human hands only when absolutely necessary. Buyongjeong Pavilion, Buyongji Pond, Juhamnu Pavilion, Eosumun Gate, Yeonghwadang Hall, Bullomun Gate, Aeryeonjeong Pavilion, and Yeongyeongdang Hall are some of the many attractions that occupy the garden. The most beautiful time to see the garden is during the fall when the autumn foliage is at its peak and the leaves have just started to fall.

    Though it has been treasured by Koreans for centuries, Changdeokgung palace was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage site by the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Committee in December of 1997 during the committee meeting in Naples, Italy.

    Deoksugung palace is unique among Korean palaces in having a modern seal engraving and a western style garden and fountain. Medieval and modern style architecture exists together in harmony in Deoksugung palace. The Changing of the Royal Guard can be seen in front of Daehanmun (Gate) and is a very popular event for many visitors. During the Joseon Dynasty, the royal guard was responsible for opening and closing the palace gate as well as patrolling around the gate area. Outside the palace is a picturesque road flanked by a stone wall which is much loved by visitors.

    Originally, Deoksugung palace was not a palace. The Imjin War (the Japanese invasions in 1592) left all the palaces in Korea severely damaged. When King Seonjo (the fourteenth king of the Joseon Dynasty) returned to Seoul from his evacuation, the primary palace Gyeongbokgung palace had been burnt to the ground and other palaces were also heavily damaged. A temporary palace was chosen from among the houses of the royal family. This is the origin of Deoksugung palace. King Gwanghaegun (the fifteenth king of the Joseon Dynasty) named the palace Gyeongungung, formalizing it as a royal palace. Since then it has been used as an auxiliary palace by many Joseon kings. In 1897, Emperor Gojong (the twenty-sixth king of the Joseon Dynasty) stayed here and expanded it. The modern buildings such as Seokjojeon (Hall) were constructed during this period. In 1907, the palace was renamed Deoksugung.
