The Yangju Pyeolsandae Nori is a very popular folk dance in Korean history. There are over 20 characters. Red, black, white and other bright colors help to identify the character, many of whom appear to have deformed features. Most of them are meant to ridicule various professionals and other members of the upper class. Designated National Treasure 121 in 1964, Hahoe masks are preserved in the National Museum in Seoul. 

Chuibali is a drunk Buddist monk who makes fun of others in a most impolitic manner.
