Cheongchun Yeoljeon Chulsapyo

Cheongchun Yeoljeon Chulsapyo, or Chulsapyo, which began in 2015, is a project that aims to provide scholarships to high-school and college students who are studying gugak (Korean traditional music) and to provide prize money to junior gugak groups to create music with traditional music vocabularies and instruments. This scholarship and competition project is aimed to build a foundation of next generation Korean musicians who can nurture, preserve and promote traditional Korean music in the contemporary era.

The 6th Cheongchun Yeoljeon Chulsapyo, presented by Lotte Scholarship Foundation and Noreum Machi along with NOWPAN KOREA, will hold the final competition this year in November 2021.


Gugak, literally meaning ‘national music’, refers to traditional music that has been practiced over the years on the Korean peninsula. It is generally divided into jeongak, or classical music practiced in the court or for the upper class and minsogak, or folk music practiced in the village or enjoyed by the general public until the early 20th century. For example, jeongak includes music played during Confucian rituals for royal ancestors and Confucian scholars and at various festive events and banquets in the court as well as small ensemble music or classical vocal music that the literati enjoyed or geomungo music that was played to enhance spiritual discipline. Folk music includes folk songs played in various contexts, which have regional characteristics in terms of dialects and melodic modes, some entertainment music such as pansori and sanjo, pungmul practiced during village events, and music played at shaman or Buddhist rituals. Currently, an increasing number of gugak musicians seek to create music that can be enjoyed by contemporary audiences, whether it is created with traditional musical expressions and played only with traditional instruments or it is integrated with western or world music.

Traditional Korean instruments showcased in Episode 3:


The Janggu, sometimes called Seyogo (slim waist drum) is the most widely used drum in traditional Korean music. It consists of an hourglass-shaped body with two heads which when played together symbolises the harmony between man and woman.


The Haegum is a traditional Korean string instrument, resembling a fiddle. With a rod-like neck, a hollow wooden soundbox and two silk strings. It is held vertically on the knee of the performer and played with a bow.


The Ajaeng is a Korean string instrument, a wide zither with strings made of twisted silk, played by scraping a slender stick made of forsythia wood against the strings in the manner of a bow.


The Yanggeum is a is traditional Korean string instrument. It is a hammered dulcimer. Unlike most traditional Korean instruments which have silk strings, the yanggeum has metal strings. Its is played by striking the strings with a bamboo stick.


The geomungo is a six-string zither with three movable bridges and sixteen convex frets. The modernized geomungo increases the strings and uses nylon strings. The instruments are widely arranged in traditional music from solo performance to an orchestra.


The daegeum is a large bamboo flute, a transverse flute used in traditional Korean music. It has a buzzing membrane that gives it a special timbre. It is used in court, aristocratic, and folk music, as well as in contemporary classical music, popular music, and film scores. The daegeum has a wide range and has a fixed pitch, so other instruments tune in to the daegeum when played together.


Korean percussive instruments are made of metal, animal skin, wood, bamboo, and stone. They are also divided into two kinds, one with different pitches and the other without pitches. The pyeonjong and the pyeonggyeong are the most popularly shown melodic percussive instruments, while the bak, jwago, janggu, kkwenggwari, jing and buk have no pitch.

About the Indian Art Museum

The Indian Art Museum was established in Seoul in July 2011, to introduce various aspects of Indian culture and art through special exhibitions and education programmes. Since 2012, the Indian Art Museum and InKo Centre have successfully held a meaningful art exchange exhibition series called Emerging Canvas annually.

The Emerging Canvas series that commenced in 2012, was initiated by InKo Centre, in association with The Indian Art Museum in Korea to identify and celebrate emerging young talent from both countries.

To date, 132 talented artists, from both countries have been presented across 6 edition of this series.

Each carefully curated edition of the series, presented 22 artists – 11 each from each country - at exhibitions presented by InKo Centre and the Indian Art Museum in Seoul and in Chennai, every alternate year, respectively. With the exigencies of the pandemic, the seventh edition of this series will this year be presented as an online exhibition at Prism, InKo Centre's virtual gallery.

As the title suggests, the artists are young, their talent emerging as does a butterfly from a chrysalis, their potential obvious, their journey just beginning.

The Korean section of this exhibition has been curated with great care by the Indian Art Museum under the able stewardship of Mrs Kim Young-Shik who over the past four decades has dedicated herself to the promotion of Indian art and culture in general and of Rabindranath Tagore’s work and philosophy, in particular, in Korea. Our thanks, in particular, to Ms Cupid Lee who has curated the Korean section for Edition VII of the Emerging Canvas series, with such dedication and care. Our sincere thanks to Ms Vaishnavi Ramanathan, curator and researcher, who has curated the Indian section of this exhibition, with great diligence and empathy. Both curators have ensured that artists from across Korea and India are fairly represented in this exhibition and that the selection showcases the myriad visual languages that meld to reflect the variety and uniqueness of contemporary Korean and Indian art.

Click on to view this exhibition at Prism - InKo Centre's virtual gallery, on Thursday, 25 November 2021 at 6.00 p.m. IST.

The exhibition will be on view until Friday, 7 January 2022.
