Ellen Park Gayageum The gayageum is a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument, with 12 strings, although more recently variants have been constructed with 21 or other numbers of strings. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument.
It is related to other Asian instruments, including the Chinese guzheng, the Japanese koto, and the Mongolian yatga. According to the Samguksagi, a history of the Three Kingdoms of Korea,the gayageum was invented by king Gasil of Gaya at the 6th century. Wuruk handed down it to Silla. Gayageum was popularized by wuruk during the regin of king Jinheung of the Silla. The body of the gayageum is made from a single piece of paulownia (Oh-dong) tree. All traditional gayageum use silk strings, although, since the late 20th century, the silk may be replaced with nylon.
