The 2nd Video is from the Sangmo Dance, The sangmo dance is a representative Korean folk dance, people dance the joyous sangmo dance by swinging their multicolored sangmos (a helmet-like hat with a long ribbon). The beautiful long ribbons of the sangmos swirl like the wind, forming colorful shiny rings around the dancers.   

The sangmo dance represents the highest level of nongak dance, showcasing the most challenging skills of nongak dance and bringing it to the climax of excitement.

During a sangmo dance, the dancers repeatedly swing their heads with neck force, moving the sangmos in various postures. They can swing the sangmos while jumping, forming dynamic rings with sangmo ribbons.
