Hahoe Maskdance

The baekjeong mask.

And the bull.

Baekjeong was Joseon's untouchable caste, and it was made up of two parts: one being entertainers and the other being butchers, hunters, skinners, and tanners. This mask represents the latter.

The old woman mask, halmital.

The bride mask

The Pagyeseung Madang featuring the young woman mask and the wandering monk.

The imae mask, reprsenting the village idiot.

The yangban mask with the bune mask.

All the dancers came out at the end...

...and unmasked.

Walking through Hahoe.
