Folksong traditions have come to be promoted as the valuable property of the Korean people as a whole, including the growing number of Koreans born overseas. While the direct recollection of the colonial experience is waning, the changes it has effected in the three genres—the substitution of “authenticity” with popular, iconic appeal—may be permanent. Rather than being threatened by the loss of authenticity, however, folksongs retain their appeal, albeit for arguably less practical and more political reasons, such as tourism, nostalgia, and community pride.
