This chapter examines the genre of Sŏdo sori, including the tradition of Paebaengi kut, a partly-sung, partly-narrated performing art that was categorized as the former. It examines the development of the repertoire of the genre and analyses its musical characteristics. The life stories of the first holders of the genre detail the impact of the Japanese colonial period and the media on opportunities for employment and conditions of performance. Detailed analysis of the music, repertoire, and presentation of the tradition demonstrates that various changes were effected before and after it was appointed Important Intangible Cultural Property.
