To commemorate the soul and spirit of Nangye Park Yeon, one of the three legendary gugak (traditional Korean music) musicians with Wang Sanak and Ureuk in Korea's ancient kingdoms, Yeongdong-gun, the hometown of Nangye, has organized regular performances of Nangye Gugak Troupe sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. Nangye Gukak Troupe, the first county-level public gugak performance team, was established in 1991 to inherit the spirit of Nangye. The troupe started its performance with the opening show of the National Gugak Orchestral Music Festival in 1994 and has met audiences about 100 times every year. Meanwhile, the Nangye Traditional Music Museum and the Nangye Traditional Music Instrument Experience Center were opened in 2000 and 2006 respectively, helping Yeongdong-gun be titled the Mecca of Traditional Korean Music. The regular performances given every Saturday in Yeongdong Gugak Village enhances the status of traditional Korean music and reminds us of its value and importance.
Regular performances of Nangye Gugak Troupe cherishing the spirit of Nangye are held every Saturday and the variety of performances crossing over Korean traditional and contemporary music and pop songs bring pleasure to the eyes and ears of the audience. The audience can also visit the Nangye Traditional Music Museum to learn about Nangye Park Yeon and gugak instruments and to participate in other programs to experience traditional Korean culture and music. Nangye Gugak Troupe has spread the beauty of Korean traditional music from 2007 when it started performances in foreign countries including Japan, China, Australia, and the U.S., and its performance has been regarded as one of Korea's representative gugak performances.
The regular performances of Nangye Gugak Troupe, which started in 2008 to commemorate the legendary musician born in Yeongdong, Nangye Park Yeon, are famous for their fantastic mixture of traditional and contemporary music. The harmony of each instrument played by the orchestra-resembling troupe leads the audience to be fully immersed into the show. Sometimes the troupe makes the performance more rich and exciting by performing with popular singers and opera singers. As the troupe is not limited to a certain genre but enjoys the music itself, anyone regardless of age and gender can enjoy the essence of traditional Korean music.
