Korea's cultural heritage, accumulated throughout its long history, is a mirror that reflects the nation's identity and serves to heighten its status in the world today. Here. nine experts on Korean folklore have compiled 37 dramas, games and rituals rooted in folk belief, which served as the vehicle for commoners to express their joys and sorrows through humor and satire. Rapid industrialization has influenced this generation to put aside folk dramas, games, and rites; this series introducing the Intangible Cultural Properties of Korea is designed to aid in the better preservation of Korea's cultural heritage and its transmission to the next generation.
