Korean Country rice planting ［ Suyeong Nongcheong-nori ］
Suyeong Nongcheong-nori is oriented around work songs of rice growing farmers.
As modernization quickly progressed, such songs disappeared. Some of the residents, and Suyeong relics and folk arts conservation association put an effort to preserve such traditional elements by reproducing the farming process and expressing them in an art form.
The nori depicts various farm works. It is comprised of farmers-songs such as, rice preparing, rice planting, weeding, barley threshing, cow-fighting and more.
A regular performance is given every June at the Suyeong Folk Art open theater.
