The little boy's learning how to play Gugak (which is directly translated into "national music"). If you heard Korean folk music before from any variety show or Korean drama, well basically this is the class to learn some instruments to play those style of music. The boy here took up the drum. It really looks fun to watch but the class is held in Korean though.
