It has not been exactly known when the instrument was first used, however, -a music book produced during the reign of King Sungjong of Chosun Dynasty mentions about Taegum and Sogum and the instrument was called ‘Jing’ or ‘Taegum’ according to its usage. For example, in Chongmyo-jeryeak, the 11 minor keys that are known as Chongdaeop are played when three cups of Korean liquor are presented to the spirits. Chongmyo is the shrine where the spirits of the Kings in Chosun dynasty are honored and the instrumental and vocal music with dance used in the ceremony is called Chongmyo-jeryeak. When the first cup of liquor is presented, it is announced with beating the instrument called ‘Jwago’ (the large size drum on the prop) ten times. When the third cup of liquor’s presentation is over, beat ‘Taegum’ ten times in order to announce the end of music. In nong-ak (farm music), k’kwaenggari plays small and fast rhythm while Jing plays the each first major key of rhythms. Jing is played with a drumstick wrapped in cloth. In the past, rice straw instead of cloth once were used to make sound more soft. It is a tendency that drumstick is getting harder
