is the home of Pansori (traditional Korean narrative song). The
great Pansori singer Park
Yu-jon, born in Sunch'ang, came
to Posong and perfected Seopyonje. Pak Yu-jon elevated the status of Seopyonje
in the Pansori music world by creating a sorrowful melody
using Dongpyonje as a foundation.
It was a notable accomplish-
ment of a man ahead of his time, able to create a sound
that contained the feelings of his southern people.
In the Bosong Park in Bosong-up, there is a Pansori
song monument in honor of Park
Yu-jon, and in Togang Village,
there is the Pansori Park.
The movie Seopyonje made by the great artist-producer, Im Kwon-taek,
opened a new era in the history of the Korean film industry
and had great influence on Korean society. It made the
Korean people realize the value of something traditional.
It was Pak Yu-jon (1826-1906) who created the Pansori
school known as Seopyonje, and
it was at Bosong that he perfected
its unique melody
