Korean Musical Instrument

These photos were taken when we were still in Korea.  We  used to go to the park near  the ocean and one fine afternoon, there were  displays  for some  kind of  a presentation out there.  


We enjoyed the photo exhibits.

Their traditional music instruments.

I don't know what they call those instruments but there is a kind of music instrument  called zither that I read online.  According to crosswordsolver.org, ZITHER is a musical instrument with string stretch over a flat sounding box, it is laid flat and played  with a plectrum and with fingers.  Below is an image I borrowed from britannica.com of a Korean lady  playing Zither.

  22. I found the musical instruments very interesting. My father had an instrument that he called a zither. It was small and quite different from the one in your photo, but I think worked on the same principle.
