Description:This recording is largely unobserved by SUK1, although he does spend a couple of minutes in the set at the beginning.Since HSH2 spends most of her week in an elderly care facility, the three friends do not see each other very often anymore. Having heard that SUK1 had been staying at HGS1's place for a couple of days, she pays them a visit, and the three engage in a lively conversation with each other, exchanging various information on what is going on in the village and around the world. During the course of the conversation (at around 36:24), HSH1 mentions the term 'haikara', (하이까라 -> 하이카라 in Korean pronunciation), which is a Japanese term for Japanese term who in the Meiji era used to imitate Western, high-collar fashion of the late 19th century. In Korea, this term became a metaphor for all kinds of people who behave or look like Westeners, yet presumably it is only used among those who grew up during colonial times.

Main researcher of current documentation project, as of 2016, PhD student in Linguistics at SOAS London. German-Korean descent, got to London after his BA studies.
Born in Jimnyeong until she moved to Haengwon because of her husband. Now widowed mother of three daughters.
Born in Jimnyeong. As a child she apparently helped out as a Somi for a Shaman, and this is how she learnt about shamanitic rites and rituals, and seems to be knowledgeable in that respect. She still is called to do private rituals at some occasions, and is confident about her shamanistic abilities. As she does work that often seems to involve soothsaying rather than taking up the social role of a major village shaman, it is not clear what her ocassional profession actually is.
Her family is mostly from Jimnyeong, only great-grandfather from Taeheung in the South. Her husband's family originates in Southern Jeolla, in Yeongam. Went to Japan at the age of 3, got back at the age of 15, 4.3 incident at 17. Her father had a factory in Deokcheon, but they had to give it up because of the 4.3 massacres. Mother of four children, two sons and two daughters, widow. 84 as of 2016.
