- Namhuntaepyeongga (南薰太平歌) is a commercially woodblock-printed Korean anthology of the 19th century, which contains sijo, japga and gasa. Its first edition was published in Seoul in 1863, and it was later reprinted several times. A different version of Namhuntaepyeongga was published from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
Because Namhuntaepyeongga is the only commercially woodblock-printed Korean anthology, it has occupied the attention of scholars and has, for more than twenty years, been treated as very important material in many studies referring to the spread of sijo or the popularization of sijo.
By comparison, bibliographical studies on Namhuntaepyeongga have only been undertaken quite recently, and there are still several questions to answer. The two most important questions, which we must answer without delay, are these: do we have the first edition of Namhuntaepyeongga? If not, can we infer what it looked like from the reprints or the different version of Namhuntaepyeongga? To answer these questions, this study examines the books we have today as closely as possible.
