Sunhong Kim is a third-year Ph.D. student in ethnomusicology. She earned B.M. and M.M. in Korean Music (Specialization: piri/taepyeongso performance) from Ewha Womans University in South Korea. Her research focuses on a North Korean Diasporic performative community—Eunyul Masked Dance Drama—as well as gender hierarchy and power relations in traditional Korean musical instrument society. Her current research interest is expanded to contemporary practices of the intersection of traditional music and popular music in South Korea through the lens of Korean studies/gender studies. For the rest of the time, she actively engages in the musical community by leading a student organization, Sinaboro (Korean traditional drum ensemble) or playing piri/taepyeongso/danso.
