Kim Hae-Sook (b.1954) plays the Sanjo in the style of Choi Ok-Sam (1905-1956), who is purported to have had a particularly precisely composed and masculine style, and is reported to be a highly logical player. Yoon Ho-Se (b. 1969) plays the buk, a large cylindrical skin drum beaten with a stick, and one of the two traditional percussion accompaniments to Sanjo.

This is an especially appealing production, with both beautiful & extensively informative liner notes.
