Kyung Suk Park Korean

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 233

Reflecting its name, which literally means "dragon drum," the yonggo has a lively dragon design. Though similar to the nearby gyobanggo, it is smaller, making it easy to play while slung horizontally at the player's waist. Ergonomically efficient, its portability is ideal for processional music.The maker of the instrument is Park Kyung Suk, known as No. 63 National Treasure.
