* Pansori : A traditional Korean style of narrative song, in which a single performer is accompanied by a drummer(playing the janggu).

Last October 24th ~ 25th, the Suju (BYEON Yeong-ro) Literature Festival was held in Bucheon to commemorate the life and literary world of BYEON Yeong-ro who has been called a pioneer in new Korean poetry and spent his early years in Bucheon; he would say that he kept the city of Bucheon close to his heart as he pursued his literary dream. His pen name ‘Suju’ was the former name of Bucheon during the Goryeo Dynasty.

The 20th Suju Literary Award and the 15th Bucheon New Writers Award were held together with the Suju Literature Festival, which was made even more exciting with an appearance by renowned singer Kim Min-young, who gave a recital of BYEON Yeong-ro’s poem Nongae in a Pansori performance.
