Janggu: a Korean drum
I am currently organizing the pictures that I have in my external hard disk. I have about 600 GB worth of pictures and videos. I might need to get a new HDD soon. As I was looking at the pictures I took this year, I saw this picture of a Korean drum.
It’s called “janggu”. During this year’s “chuseok” or Korean thanksgiving, my son saw this drum at his cousin’s room. I was surprised when he played with it (for about 30 seconds).
I don’t know how to play any instrument. When I was younger, I really wanted to learn the violin. Now that I’m older, I’m more interested with the drums. At least, I could put it at our living room and since we don’t have any neighbor, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the noise it would create ;p
I also love watching drum dances. I don’t remember what it’s called in Korean, but the dance is usually performed by women wearing colorful hanboks – the traditional Korean dress.
How I wish I could post more info about this, but unfortunately the keyboard I’m using doesn’t have Hangeul ;p
