Description Talchum, the Korean mask dance, is a unique art form that combines Korean history, tradition, faith, and folk elements. Talchum satirizes the lives of ordinary people and yangban, the aristocratic class. The Tal (mask), which depicts characters in the stories, implies characteristics and meanings of each region. In this section, thirteen mask dance dramas of the Republic of Korea inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2022 are introduced.
