Songpa Sandae Noli was registered as Korea's 49th Intangible Cultural Asset in 1973 and has been protected by the Songpa Sandae Noli Preservation Association under the auspices of the Cultural Heritage Administration ever since. The group frequently performs around Korea, especially in the Seoul region, as they are the only mask dance group performing today that historically also existed within the boundaries of present day Seoul (the historic performance location was, as the name suggests, in Songpagu, in what was once a thriving Han River trading port). The mask dance drama has 12 scenes and takes four hours to perform in full, therefore the performance from which these excerpts were cobbled, at only 55 minutes long, did not contain the entire mask dance drama but only parts of two and all of two other acts/scenes.
