Cheonggyecheon in Seoul, Korea [Part 3]


Here we see the Korean traditional Janggu (장구), basically Korean drums. Here’s Korean flute or trumpet of some kind. Here’s another instrument, I believe this is the Kkwaenggwari (꽹과리). This is the traditional Korean dancer with a loop on his head.  Basically he will make it spin, spin, and spin more for some awesome effects. Here we have another Korean national sport, sorta like Japanese Sumo, called Ssireum (씨릉).  Ssireum is still very popular in Korea and widely televised nationally in South Korea. More Korean traditional dancing drummers. Some kind of traditional Korean acrobatics. The Tortoise and the Hare story is widely known in South Korea. Here’s traditional Korean kite, made from rice-paper and bamboo sticks. See Part 1 See Part 2
