The Leper from “Tongyeong Ogwangdae”

Korean Mask Dance Dramas

The Leper from “Tongyeong Ogwangdae”

The Leper is the signature character in Tongyeong Ogwangdae, as can be seen from the banner at the back of the stage. His hands tremble, and his fingers are curled (or missing), but he triumphs over his illness to dance with a small drum.
