Buchaechum It is the most resentful traditional dance in Corea. It consists in a dance with fans and long dreses. The first use of dance in Korea began about five thousand years ago with shamanic rituals. Shamanism incorporates the beliefs and practices of Korea’s indigenous peoples, and both religious views and dance styles were unique to each people in these early years. Typically, each region had its own local gods, and shamans worked as part of funeral services to guide spirits to heaven. Dances, like the Southern Tang’ol, were choreographed for the purpose of entertaining a god or goddess.
