ABSTRACT

The aim of this article is to argue that a valuable tool to calm impatience is to listen to Sijo. The author seeks to argue that the best way to calm impatience is to listen to Sijo. Sijo refers to a slow and mellow music in the family of Han Ak (Korean music, 韓樂). The term slow is a revered keyword in our culture. "Slow" is a blank word in Han Ak (Korean music, 韓樂). The soul of Wol-ha Kim’s Sijo is a beauty of space and easiness. Therefore, her voice will help relax the muscles of the listener and calm the soul. It is akin to the struggles of modern people competing for something excessively but ending up with nothing. We often find that gentle jogging is better than sprinting. Slow music is thus good for one's health. For example, we know that our skin can become beautiful and that real beauty can be obtained only when the body and mind are at rest and in comfort. Physical appearance depends on a healthy mind and body. The author believes that Sijo for music therapy is good for our mental health. If its effectiveness is confirmed after performing tests on animals and humans in an experimental study, we can use this type of music to treat patients with psychological illnesses.
