[Gyeonggi Tourism Organization]

▲ Part of the Hangang Railway Railroad Road, Pyunghwanuri-gil Course 3It is the era of 'untact'. Uncontact is a compound word prefixed with un- to indicate negativity in contact. These days, where people spend their daily lives without face to face, untact is no exception when it comes to travel.This is the time when the travel method of walking and exploring a quiet and quiet place alone, rather than visiting famous tourist spots in the midst of a crowded crowd, is in the spotlight.I want to travel so much, but I can't. The new trend of travel is “online travel”. It feels like going to the destination indirectly by viewing travel reviews and photos online at home. Keeping pace with this trend, the online travel prepared by the Gyeonggi Tourism Organization and the GyeonGi Cultural Foundation is “Walking Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil and Gyeonggiyet-gil”. Let's take a quick look at Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil and Gyeonggiyet-gil before starting an online trip together.▲ Part of yeomhagang-cheolchakgil, Pyunghwanuri-gil Course 1Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil consists of a total of 12 courses connecting four cities and counties in the northernmost part of Korea, from Gimpo, Goyang, Paju, and Yeongheon, located on the DMZ border.This place was created to renovate the abandoned area surrounded by barbed wire to create a dulle-gil, so that you can enjoy various landscapes that have not been known behind the barbed wire and feel the desire for peace.Looking at the 189km-long course, including 3 Gimpo courses, 2 Goyang courses, 4 Paju courses, and 3 Yeongheon courses, you will be surprised that there are so many cultural heritages located in Gyeonggi-do.▶ Pyunghwanuri-gil 12 course details[Photos] ▲ Some of Gyeonggiyet-gil, Euiju-gilGyeonggiyet-gil, managed and operated by the GyeonGi Cultural Foundation, is a course that connects cities and counties within a wider range of Gyeonggi-do than Pyunghwanuri-gil, and incorporates local cultural heritage and storytelling such as folk tales, folk tales, and geographical names. This is a historical and cultural trail that connects local cultural heritages by walking paths based on historical evidence, and is a newly created road based on the main six road networks that pass through Gyeonggi-do among the transportation routes connecting Hanyang and the provinces in the Joseon Dynasty.Among them, Samnam-gil, Euijoo-gil, and Youngnam-gil were created and opened from 2012 to 2015, and the remaining three roads, Pyunghae-ro, Gyungheung-ro, and Ganghwa-ro, are currently under development.▶ Gyeonggiyet-gil 6 Course Details▲ Some of Gyeonggiyet-gil and Euijoo-gilThis two-pronged road that crosses Gyeonggi-do, Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil and Gyeonggiyet-gil, will meet you at one place. Courses are Bangujung-gil and Gyeonggiyet-gil Euijoo-gil-5th-gil.In this place, along the course, the main spots representing Gyeonggi-do Paju, along with the beautiful scenery of the Limjingang River, are connected along the course. It is “Hwasukjung”, where scholars representing the Joseon era, and Yulgok spent the rest of their lives, and the metropolitan area closest to North Korea. “Limjingang Station”, which holds the title of a subway station, and Limjingak Pyunghwanuri Park, a complex cultural space with the theme of peace and reunification, reconciliation and coexistence, located near Limjingang Station.From now on, more lightly than ever before, let's take a look at the Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil 8 course, Bangujung-gil, Gyeonggiyet-gil, Hwasujung, Limjingang Station, and Limjingak Pyunghwanuri Park, standing above Euijoo-5th-gil. ▲'Hwasukjung' located in Bangujung-gil, Euijoo-gil-5th-gil and Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8First, it is Hwasukjung, located near the end of Bangujung-gil, Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8, and near the point of Euijoo-gil-5th-gil.Hwasukjung, Gyeonggi-do Tangible Cultural Property No. 61, was where Yi Yi and Yulgok often stopped by to write poems and study scholarships with their students. It is located by the river overlooking Limjingang, and on a clear day, it is a place where you can see the superb view of Samgaksan Mountain in Seoul and Ogwansan Mountain in Gaesung.It is also famous for the anecdote that King Seonjo burned this summerhouse to light up a fire because he could not see the river in the middle of the night while he was evacuating to Euijoo during the Imjin War.Hwasukjung, which had been burnt down at this time, was restored in 1673 (King Hyungjong 14). It was burned back during the Korean War, and it is said that the building was repainted and refurbished as part of the government project in 1973.Standing in front of Hwasukjung, you can visualize the scenery of Limjingang that can be seen in the distance through photos, and move to the next attractions, Limjingang Station and Limjingak Pyunghwanuri Park.▲ Euijoo-gill-5th-gil and'Limjingang Station' located in Bangujung-gil, Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8Limjingang Station was opened on September 1, 1938 under the name of “Limjin Station”, but was discontinued on October 31, 1941, and business resumed on September 30 through the 2001 Gyeongeui Line restoration project. On March 28, 2020, the Munsan-Limjingang section was electrified and included in the Gyeongeui Central Line, the metropolitan area train, and now it is a place that can be easily visited by public transportationLimjingang Station is located just 6km away from North Korea, but it contains photos of the Korean War on display at the station, the National Korean War abductees' memorial nearby, and the pain of the North-South division in Limjingak Pyunghwanuri Park and the wish for peaceful reunification. As you look at various relics and symbols, you can feel the distance to North Korea that you still cannot reach.▲ Mangbaedan and Bridge of Freedom located in Bangujung-gil, Euijoo-gill-5th-gil and Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8In particular, the steam locomotive at Jangdan Station on the Gyeongeui Line in Limjingak Pyunghwanuri Park and the Bridge of Liberty add to the pain felt in the reality of division. It is said that the bridge of freedom was named after the Korean War, meaning the bridge that prisoners of war crossed when returning to freedom. Originally, this iron bridge had two bridges, up and down, but it was destroyed during the battlefield and only the pier remained.It is said that the iron bridge was restored on the west pier to pass the prisoners and a temporary bridge was built at the southern end of the bridge, which continues to this day.▲ Euijoo-gill-5th-gil and a steam locomotive at Jangdan Station, located in Bangujung-gil, Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8The steam locomotive at Jangdan Station was a steam locomotive that was left in the DMZ after being derailed due to exposure during the Korean War, registered as a cultural property in 2004, and then removed the rust and moved to the current location.It is one of the symbols representing the division of the South and North Korea.According to the story of this train, the train, which carried military supplies from Kaesong Station during the war, was detonated by the Allied Forces, fearing that it would be used against the enemy when the Chinese Army was pushed south and reached Jangdan Station. In addition, the mulberry trees growing on the train next to the train were moved and planted next to them according to the opinions of the people in the field, saying, “It seems to show the persistent vitality of our people.” This is a representative cultural property in Bangujung-gil and Gyeonggiyet-gil Euijoo-5th-gil, the 8th course of Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil, which I looked around online. I was able to look back on the history of Korea on this road that Yi Yi and Yulgok loved, the superb view of Limjingang, the pain of division, and the desire for reunification of the South and North Korea throughout Gyeonggi-do Paju. ▲ SwooPwoolnuri located in Bangujung-gil, Euijoo-gill-5th-gil and Pyunghwanuri-gil course 8Someday, when the social distancing is quiet to Level 1 in the near future, it is beneficial to walk around the outskirts of the city and explore cultural properties while taking the time to unwind the body that was forced into the house and do'real trekking' instead of'online travel' Will have time. If a good day comes, you should choose one of the Gyeonggiyet-gil or Gyeonggi-do Pyunghwanuri-gil courses and take time to walk through the course and learn about the various stories of Korea contained in Gyeonggi-do. I want to see you.※ Some of the manuscripts and photos were provided by the Gyeonggi Tourism Organization.

Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. 48 Pyeongtaekminyo▲ Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. 48 Pyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association <Farmer’s Song> (ⓒPyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association)Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. 48'Pyeongtaekminyo' is a traditional folk song passed down in Pyeongtaek, where agriculture and fishing were developed evenly from an early age due to the coexistence of a wide plain and sea.Pyeongtaek, a symbol of abundance, focused on rice field farming rather than field farming, and the Dooresori Pyeongtaek farmer's song, which shared the hardship and joy of labor, was developed. In addition, large and small rivers merged from Lake Pyeongtaek and flowed into the west sea. At this time, the fishery developed with abundant fish due to the intersection of freshwater and seawater, and the sound of the boat, Fisherman’s Song, was transmitted. The funeral song is the sound of a bonus song that sends the dead to the underworld after releasing the regrets of this world. Like this, Pyeongtaekminyo, composed of farmer’s song, Fisherman’s song, and funeral song, is called Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. Designated as 48, it has been recognized for its excellence and historical value.Pyeongtaek City is the southern region of Gyeonggi, adjacent to Anseong and Yongin to the east, Asan Bay to the west, Asan and Cheonan to the south, and Hwaseong Fortress to the north. Due to its relatively flat geographic characteristics, rice paddy farming has been developed since ancient times, and it has become a soil for the development of various kinds of agricultural labor songs and pungmul. Also, since it is located along the sea, songs related to fishing have also developed.▲ Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. 48 Pyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association <Fisherman’s Song> (ⓒPyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association)▲ Gyeonggi Intangible Cultural Property No. 48 Pyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association <Funeral Song> (ⓒPyeongtaekminyo Conservastaion Association)Folk songs from Suwon, Osan, Yongin, Yeoju, Icheon, Anseong, etc. located in the south of the Han River, including Pyeongtaek, are musically equivalent to the Menaritori scale.

In particular, Fisherman’s Song is not only unique in the southern part of Gyeonggi-do, but has a very unique feature.Pyeongtaekminyo, who delivered the value and joy of work.

Showing the “sound” of Korea's modern and contemporary history

GyeongGi Cultural Foundation-Pyeongtaek City Cultural Cooperation Project ▲ [Photo] A view of the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum performance hall▶ GyeongGi Cultural Foundation- A cultural and artistic project that utilizes Pyeongtaek's local content “Sori” In October 2020, the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation (CEO Heon Kang) used the Pyeongtaek local cultural content “Pyeongtaek Sori” to show the regional theme of “Pyeongtaek” in the “Korean unique sound” and “Pyeongtaek Sori”. We have planned and created a space for various small-scale performances using'. Through the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum, which captures the history and present of Korean national music, the City of Pyeongtaek will establish itself as a cultural arts city in southern Gyeonggi Province. ▶ Creation of a data space for Korean folk music showing the center of “The Sound of Pyeongtaek” The Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum consists of the Ji Younghee Gugak Hall on the 1st floor, the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Library on the 2nd floor, and the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum (Sori Hall) on the 3rd floor. Exhibitions, performances, and reading of materials are possible in one space, so you can see the flow of Korean folk music that contains people's lives, memories, and the ideology of the times around the Pyeongtaek area. The Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum has been organized as an educational site that promotes the history of Korea through the traditions and modern times, and provides professional materials and cultural art experiences. The Korean folk music of Pyeongtaek, shown by the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum, will serve to establish our national identity and introduce the sound of Korea to future generations as a bridge between history and the present.▶ Planning of Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum space In the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum project, the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation wanted to realize the core values ​​of a space in harmony with nature, a place to stay, and a space showing local culture. The composition of the space largely started as an outdoor space and expanded to the interior space on the third floor. The front yard of the outdoor space has been transformed into an open space, allowing visitors to relax and walk while looking at the Pyeongtaek Lake. On the third floor, which is an internal space, a cool window is created that looks like a Pyeongtaek lake. The structure that crosses the entire Sori Hall was conceived in the form of Haegeum to visualize 'sound'. The grid-shaped circular structure has architectural features that make it appear three-dimensional even from any point of view. In addition, it gave a sense of openness between the space and the space, and if you walk along the circular inner flow line, you can enjoy a special exhibition, and if you follow the outer flow line, you can experience a unique dual exhibition space where you can view a permanent exhibition. ▲ [Photo] Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum outdoor rest facilitiesGyeongGi Cultural Foundation (CEO Kang Heon) and Pyeongtaek City (Mayor Jangsun Chung) will present 「Pyeongtaek Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum」 on October 30, 2020. GyeongGi Cultural Foundation's public art is carrying out 'space', 'exhibition' and 'artist's project' based on the local culture of 31 cities and counties in Gyeonggi-do. It is a cultural cooperation project that combines 'exhibition'. The Pyeongtaek Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum is a cultural complex created in cooperation with the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation and Pyeongtaek City as a collaborative project to expand the local culture, and contains the Pyeongtaek local cultural content, “Pyeongtaek Sori”. Pyeongtaek’s “sound” is the representative local culture of Gyeonggi Province that contains the historical and present of Korean folk music. Through the Pyeongtaek Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum, we intend to establish the local cultural identity of Pyeongtaek City as “the home of the Korean sound,” and establish itself as a base for culture and arts in southern Gyeonggi Province.An official at the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum says, “Music is made up of people's lives, memories, and ideologies.” The Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum in Pyeongtaek shows our music, the image of us that has changed in the flow of Korean history from the modern era. The GyeongGi Cultural Foundation planned and created exhibition spaces and performance halls, and Pyeongtaek City operates special and permanent exhibitions using contents about Korean folk music. The Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum will establish the identity of Korean music amid the globalization of Korean music, and will become the center of the educational field where you can experience and promote the sound culture of Korea. Furthermore, it is expected to play a role in introducing the sound of Korea to future generations as a bridge connecting the history and the present of Korean modern and contemporary music. ▲ [Photo] Inside view of Korean Modern and Contemporary Music MuseumThe core of the space planning of the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation is a space that harmonizes with nature, a space where you want to stay, and a space that shows local culture.The “space in harmony with nature” secured a landscape that allows residents and locals visiting the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum to view the “Pyeongtaek Lake” from any space. By transforming the stuffy landscaping space of the existing front yard into an open space, visitors can take a break while looking at Pyeongtaek Lake in an outdoor space. Even in the Sori Hall on the 3rd floor, a frameless window was used to provide a space free of visual obstacles to the people staying in the room so that they could see the ‘Pyeongtaek Lake’ coolly. Light coming through the windshield window surrounds the sound hall, giving it a warm and bright feeling. The Pyeongtaek Lake beyond the window will be harmonized with the work on the stage curtain, and will become the background of the stage by itself and another viewpoint of the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum. Interference lighting was installed in front of the window frame where natural light enters for the “space to make people want to stay”, and the light that permeates the space is made to show various shapes through the grid structure. Visitors will be able to see the exhibition and enjoy the leisure of life in a small performance hall.The core of the “space that shows local culture” is the structure that runs across the entire Sori Hall on the third floor. This structure was designed reminiscent of the Haegeum performance in “Pyeongtaek Sound”. The overall shape of the structure is a modern interpretation of the shape of Haegeum, and the open grid-shaped wall, not the blocked wall, makes it appear three-dimensional at any point in time, and has a unique spatial division and architectural feature that gives a sense of openness. By visually expressing the auditory cultural content called ‘sound', the auditory and visual elements of the exhibition hall can be enjoyed at the same time. If you walk along the inner path of the circular structure, you can see a special exhibition, and if you follow the outer path, you can experience a unique exhibition space where you can see a permanent exhibition.▲[Photo] Curtain of the concert hall with contemporary landscape paintings by artist Taeyoung JangAt the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum, the works of two contemporary artists naturally melt into the space. Artist Taeyoung Jang has been working on a project in which contemporary art melts into life through various public art. At the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum in Pyeongtaek, a contemporary landscape painting of the Pyeongtaek Lake outside the window was produced using the curtains of the performance hall. It is not a blackout curtain to cover stage performers, but a work that harmonizes space and nature. Artists say that abstract lines, such as the melody of music, spread out like a touch of an ink painting, giving a landscape of Lake Pyeongtaek.The project group gallery house (Byeonnaeri, etc.) installed on the wall of the building visualized the 'Pyeongtaek sound' using the exterior walls of the building. The dancing figures are abstracted in a modern sense, and a single light is gradually expanded to form a lighting system. It is a simple exterior wall during the day, but at night when darkness sets in, kinetic art works that move along with the surface of Lake Pyeongtaek unfold.Anyone who visits the Pyeongtaek Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum can exhibit, perform, and read materials in one space, and enjoy a variety of cultural experiences at the Korean Modern and Contemporary Music Museum. You can get a break to enjoy a moment.

Space for imagination, courage and creativity for children

[NGCM]

The GyeongGi Cultural Foundation North GyeongGi Children's Museum (Director Munsong Pyo) will be reopened on November 1 after a 10-month renovation. The North GyeongGi Children's Museum, newly created with the theme of “Children Dreaming in the Forest,” is planned to be operated as a representative cultural facility in the northern region of Gyeonggi, consisting of a beautiful cultural and artistic creative space where children's free imagination and courage grow.As it was transferred from Dongducheon to Gyeonggi Province, the North GyeongGi Children's Museum has exhibited the existing <Explore the Dinosaur Forest>, the <Forest Ecology> with a large ant cave, and the ‘Secret Pond' that applied the principles of water and science encountered while playing in the valley water. The exhibition of <Rumbling and Exciting Valley Water> was renovated.In particular, we will pay attention to the exhibitions and educational programs that intensively tried to change while reopening. Based on the ‘forest of the past', which is symbolized by the dinosaur forest, which is an existing exhibition, the concept of ‘the present forest' and ‘the forest of the future' was additionally linked, and the theme of the museum's exhibition and education was reconstructed in context. 'The Forest of the Present' is unfolded as an exhibition of <Five Gamtonous Senses in the Forest>, which awakens the senses in the forest with the five senses, the representative character of the museum. This exhibition consists of an experiential exhibition where children learn themselves to experience the reality of nature and forests that are being destroyed by environmental problems in modern society and try to revive them.In addition, ‘Forest of the Future’ is a digital media education on the themes of ecosystem, environment, and peace in <Media Lab>, an educational space for seniors in elementary school. With media education through media appreciation, participation, and discussion, the museum's audience has been expanded to the fifth and sixth grades of elementary school.Various amenities for visitors have also been renovated. On the 1st floor, <Green Stairs> allows you to relax and enjoy media, and in the newly created cultural space, various cultural and artistic experience programs for family visitors will be held. In addition, the works of 「Wishing Chair」 reflecting the characteristics of the northern region of Gyeonggi Province adjacent to the DMZ are expected to be regarded as a new landmark element of the museum.To commemorate the reopening, the North GyeongGi Children's Museum (Dongducheon) and GyeongGi Children's Museum (Yongin), which became one of the members of the family, will host a special performance, ‘Crushed Children's Concert (Child + Adult = Child).’ This performance, which can be enjoyed by both children and the whole family, including adults, will be held in the lobby of the GyeongGi Children's Museum (Yongin) on October 24th, and the Chameleon Zone on the 1st floor of the North GyeongGi Children's Museum on Saturday, October 31st. This performance, held in Seoul, will provide a different experience from traditional concerts by playing baroque music by an orchestra composed of ‘Recorders', which is the most familiar instrument for children. The GyeongGi Children’s Museum and the North GyeongGi Children’s Museum plan to run a regular “mixed-up children's concert” that introduces and educates various musical instruments and music.This concert can only be attended by visitors accompanying elementary school children after applying in advance. Applications can be made on the North GyeongGi Children's Museum and GyeongGi Children's Museum homepages or the GyeongGi Cultural Foundation's integrated member site, GG Members (https://members.ggcf. kr/).
