Academic Research

The National Gugak Center fulfills research projects on all aspects of Gugak, including restoring Korean traditional music scores, audio archives, and establishing the standards of Gugak education.

We especially strive to restore and reproduce Gugak instruments through acoustic study and in-depth multilateral research based on archives of old documents and historical data. In addition, we are at forefront of carrying out active research activities including establishing the Gugak annual report, collection of academic dissertations, and Gugak glossary.
We also hold international academic conferences, and are establishing a system of Gugak knowledge for future generations.
