‘Dong-Dong’ in Korean classical music
This paper focused on 'Dong-Dong'. 'Dong-Dong' is classified as 'folk music entertainments' in Koryosa(高麗史). Therefore I examined documentary records closely related with 'Dong-Dong', out of that I argued about the meaning, the origin and the flow into folk music of Koryo(高麗). Besides I looked around the song of 'Dong-Dong', the dance of 'Dong-Dong' and the instrumentation of 'Dong-Dong'. In consequence of that I derived following conclusions.
① Up to now 'Dong-Dong' has recognized as an onomatopoeic word of the sound of a drum. But I defined it as an expression of the motions.
② 'Dong-Dong' can't be restricted as a 'folk music entertainments' in Koryo. It was a composite art of songs and dances which was wide-spreaded in Mahan(馬韓) area. Henceforth it was incorporated into folk music of Koryo, and court music of Chosun(朝鮮).
③ The words of that song had influence on the various genres of music in after ages.
④ The dance of 'Dong-Dong' performed on A-Bak(牙拍) dances until the latter period of Chosun, but can't be initiated any more.
⑤ The music of 'Dong-Dong' was recorded in Daeakhoobo(大樂後譜), furthermore it was correlated to 'Jeong-Eup', while the use of these two musics are different.
