Jeonju Sori Festival Kicks Off on Sept.24

The city of Jeonju lies in the country's southwestern Jeollabuk-do (North Jeolla Province), and is well known as the birthplace of “pansori,” or traditional vocal narrative, which dates back to the 18th century.

The term pansori is a compound of “pan,” which means place, and “sori,” which means sound.
