<Anchor> We



are introducing promising players in each field in the new year, and today (26th), the guest seat is with Park Go-eun, the youngest gayageum recital, as well as the 'gayageum gifted' who is grafting gayageum into K-pop and classical music.



Q. Brilliant awards...

Why did you start gayageum?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (National Traditional Arts High School 1st year): I started following her sister when I was 7 years old.

But after doing it, I really liked just playing the gayageum.

And it was so much fun to play and practice with her sister, and it became a good driving force, so I naturally entered the gayageum path.]



Q. Being called a 'gayageum prodigy'...

How do you feel?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (first year at National Traditional Arts High School): Actually, when I was young, it was so good to call you gayageum prodigy.

But these days, I want to grow beyond a gayageum prodigy, that is, as an artist who impresses people, so I feel a little burdened and I feel the weight.]




Q. Two solo recitals…

How was the Sanjo performance?



[Park Go-eun/Gayageum player (1st year at National Traditional Arts High School): As a musician who is studying Korean traditional music, I want to study sanjo deeply, so now I am holding a ginsanjo recital.

A ginsanjo recital requires a lot of work, a lot of expressiveness, and I have to play for an hour without a break.

The preparation process was very difficult, but after I did it, I learned a lot.

It's my greed, but if I get a chance next time, I want to show you a better stage.]



Q. Try different genres of music…

The reason is?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (first year at National Traditional Arts High School): Actually, when I was homeschooling in middle school, I got to participate in a contest called 21st Century Korean Music Project.

At that time, I prepared a stage with Gayageum, Chang, DJing, and Loop Station.

Eotneunde scared worried because a new trial also had a lot of time planting my mother gave me a lot of confidence and also make the contest even better results came out Come to put down your little mind to try new Since then we work freely as I want to.]



Q. Do you have any memorable moments during your collaboration?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (1st year at National Traditional Arts High School): As I said, there are Black Swans among the idols.

(The rhythm must have been a little faster.) Yes.

It was so much fun because I was arranging and arranging myself while doing gayageum.

I think the collaboration we did back then was the most memorable.]




Q. Various challenges… Was it an opportunity to reach out to the public?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (National Traditional Arts High School 1st year): That's right. The first reason I started was because I thought about how to approach the public with gayageum in a friendly way. As a result, the results seem to have been good and I think it is fortunate that there seems to be a lot of interest in them.]



Q. Is there any wish for 'popularization of Korean music'?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (National Traditional Arts High School 1st year): Gugak is not just for gugak musicians. Gugak is to be with everyone. So, I hope that other people will be able to enjoy traditional music as one by opening their minds to it and looking for it with interest.]



Q. Studying and practicing at the same time… Wasn't it hard?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (1st year at National Traditional Arts High School): My life has changed a lot since I was homeschooling in middle school, living a free music life, and then going to school. It was really hard back then. At that time, I had too many things to do and my confidence was low, so I was very tired physically and mentally, but after that, I am looking for the precious and necessary things in my life, and now I am having fun.]




Q. What is the charm of gayageum?



[Park Go-eun / Gayageum player (first year of National Traditional Arts High School): I think the charm of the gayageum in my opinion is that it has the charm of making it one with the world.

So, depending on what kind of music you listen to, you become Chunhyang, you become a king, and sometimes you become a scholar.

So I have a feeling that gayageum is something that makes my dreams come true.]



Q. Do you have any dreams or wishes that you want to achieve in the future?



[Park Go-eun/Gayageum player (1st year at National Traditional Arts High School): My dream and wish is that Korean traditional music is known not only in Korea but also around the world.

Actually, Korean culture is more interesting than before, but I want to make it more friendly and approachable to people like a friend.]
