With the recent development of digital culture, Korean audiences have become significant agents in constructing the cultural landscape of Korea due to the diversified methods of participating in culture. In this paper, I investigate this multi-faceted audience participation within traditional music through an ethnographic approach. Exploring the historical background and attempts to revitalise traditional Korean music, I elaborate on how the environment through which one can access traditional music has changed and envisage how Koreans engage in and contribute to the traditional music arena. Examination of audience participation offers a wider perspective on future development prospects for traditional Korean music.
