Folk art consists of the combination of many art fields, and consists of various groups depending on the perspective of transmission subject, method of transmission, locality. It is sometimes transmitted mainly with national institution, while it was closely related to agriculture, the traditional economic foundation, and passed down through word of mouth. Jinju's folk art can be said to have been developed and passed down in the current form by interacting with professional artists. The art of professional artists has been handed down mainly by the professional artists in Korea, and it served as the basis for the art styles of the indigenous people to change and develop into a more sophisticated style. As for the cultural assets in the field of folk art in Jinju City, there are currently seven items designated as intangible cultural assets in the traditional performing arts category in the fields of traditional dance, music, and performance. As national intangible cultural assets, Jinju Nongak (Farmer’s Performance) and Jinju Geommu(sword dance) are designated and handed down, and as provincial and provincial intangible cultural assets, Hallyangmu(Dance of Prodigals of Jinju), Jinju Pogurakmu(Ball-throwing Dance), Jinju Gyobang-gutgeori dance(Dance to a Four-beat Structure with Three Subdivisions, from the Art and Dance Institute in Jinju), Shingwan Yong Style Gayageum Sanjo(Free-style Gayageum Solo in the Sin Gwan-yong Style), and Jinju Ogwangdae(Masked Dance Performance of Jinju) have been designated and passed down.
