South Korea
Korean society is based on the tenets of Confucianism, a system of ethics developed in China around 500 BC. Confucianism is big on devotion and respect - for parents, family, friends and those in positions of authority. Confucius also emphasised justice, peace, education, reform and humanitarianism. Many Koreans attribute their country's remarkable success in recent decades to this attitude. In modern Korean society, Confucianism is most noticeable in relations between people. The Five Relationships prescribe behaviour between ruler and subject, father and son, husband and wife, old and young, and between friends. If you fall outside any of these relationships, you do not, effectively, exist. Many travellers to Korea find the locals rude: they're probably not; chances are they just haven't noticed you. Once you're introduced to someone, you'll fall within the rules for friends and things will start looking up. The South Koreans have turned their hand to just about any art form you can name. Traditional music is similar to that of Japan and China, with an emphasis on strings. The two main forms are the stately chongak and the folksier minsogak . Among the folk dances are drum dances ( mugo - a hectic, lively court dance where the participants wear drums around their necks), mask dances (

A detailed introduction to traditional Korean music.Category Kids and Teens School Time Asia Korea Arts...... Western music in Korea. From that time, music from the West beganto permeate Korea's musical culture. It flourished so well that
Imformation of Traditional Korean Music Traditional Korean Music K orea is rich in musical culture, and its music is distinctive despite tremendous influences from China. The same is true for Japanese music despite Korean influence. Evidence of these influences can presently be found in the existence of Koreanized-Chinese music called tang-ak in Korea and of Japanized-Korean music called komagaku in Japan. The Korean term tang-ak literally means music from T'ang Dynasty China. Similarly the Japanese term komagaku signifies music from the Koryo Dynasty in Korea. K M S og-ak, music for the commoner includes shaman music, Buddhist music, folk songs, farmers' music called nong-ak, a form of dramatic song called p'ansori, and an instrumental solo music called sanjo. In shaman music, the role of an inspired female shaman priest called a mudang is very important. The mudang plays the part of a medium between the visible world and the supernatural. Singing, dancing, and instrument playing are always involved. One of the most important types of Buddhist music is called pomp'ae, a song of praise to Buddha, and today preserved by only a few priests. To promote this music, the government has designated pomp'ae as an intangible cultural asset and is taking steps to encourage new devotees of the art.

Its design does not symbolize geographical or political division. It also does not portray any great historical event, national aim or ideals of this country. Rather, the Korean flag symbolizes much of the thought, philosophy and mysticism of Asia. It encourages contemplation and philosophic interpretation of the varied meanings of the universe. This red and blue swirl and sometimes the flag itself is called the T'aeguk. The central thought in the t'aeguk form illustrates constant motion in the sphere of infinity where thereis also balance.

Geography Language Ecology Political System ... Society Culture History Culture Korean culture has blossomed during her long history. Though affected by other Asian cultures, its roots lis deep within the creative Korean psyche, and it has tended to spread rather than be encroached upon. Japan especially has adopted many Korean ideas and customs. The delicate styling and fine craftsmanship pf celadon pottery well illustrates the refinement of the culture, even from as far back as the Three Kingdoms Period. Korea has also spawned some great inventors; its first printing systems predate German Johannes Gutenberg's, the famous "Turtle Ship" was the first ever iron-clad battleship, and the Korean alphabet Hangul, devised by a group of scholars in the 15th century, was so effective that it remains largely unchanged today. The reasons behind Korea's rapid economic development can be found in this innate creativity.
  • UNESCO has designated seven Korean cultural assets to the World Heritage List: Chongmyo Shrine, Haeinsa Temple's Changgyong P'anjon (depositories for the Tripitaka Koreana Woodblocks), Pulguksa Temple and nearby Sokkuram Grotto, Changdokkung Palace, Hwasong Fortress, Dolmen Sites in Kochang, Hwasun and Kanghwa, and Kyongju Historic Areas. This recognition of these historically significant sites as locations that the whole world must be aware of and protect is a source of great pride for all Koreans.

Teaching About Korea
I. Korea as a Cultural Transformer and Transmitter The Korean term for peninsula ( bando ) means literally "half-island". Historically, Korea, connected to the Asian continent on the north and pointing across the sea towards Japan on the south, has exhibited the characteristics of both a maritime and a continental nation. As a unique culture in its own right as well as a bridge between the Asian continent and Japan, Korea has served as a center for transforming Chinese traditions to fit its own needs before transmitting them to Japan. This is particularly true of Buddhism and Confucianism. The closest access of China to Japan is across open sea, and historically, it would have been hard for the two to interact without a middle ground. Korea has played an important role as link between Japan and the mainland. Through Korea, elements of Chinese civilization, including Chinese script, Confucianism, and Buddhism (in forms developed in China after its origination in India) were modified before being passed to Japan. Thus Korea played a vital role in creating the East Asian cultural sphere that encompassed what are today the countries of China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam. A Buddhism reached Korea via China during the Three Kingdoms Period (4th - 7th c.), bringing with it many other secular elements of Chinese culture. As the "state religion" of the period, Buddhism provided legitimacy for Korea's rulers and helped in the forging of a unified state. It was also important in the development of Korea art and architecture, literature, and the performing arts. This religious and cultural heritage was transmitted to Japan by Koreans in the 6th century.
