Description
The Ministry of Communications is issuing these two stamps as the fifth and last part of a series designed to introduce Korea`s traditional musical instruments.

1. Pak (Clappers): Shaped like a folded fan, this instrument consists of six leaves which are loosely held together at the upper end by a chord made of deer`s skin. The loose ends are thicker than the bound ends. The left hand holds a leaf, while the right hand opens and claps the other leaves against the leaf held in the left hand. Pak is clapped once to start the music and three times in rapid succession to end the music.
