Peasants' Dancing and Singing
Peasants' dancing and singing is one of the traditional folk events. There are peasant dance, mask dance and kanggangsuwollae (a Korean circle dance usually done by girls under the bright full moon), etc.
Peasants' dancing and singing is a folk dance associated with farming, in which some dozens of people in traditional attire dance merrily, while singing.
It took place before and after a day's work and at breaks, mostly during the seasons of rice-seedling transplanting and weeding. It was also performed on holidays and ceremonies, between labour and as a pastime.
It includes men's dance of turning round decorative tassels, and dance of persons wearing masks of different faces, among which the Pongsan Mask Dance has long been a renowned folk event.
