In South Korea, Hyangto-minyo is carried in a research paper but Tongsok-minyo and Sin-minyo are not given in the paper openly. In this case, we can know that between South and North Korean researchers have a different understanding of the Minyo. In South Korea, we think that Hyangto-minyo and Tonsok-minyo are formally, culturally placed under the same category but Tongsok-minyo is not positively conduct as its sung by the professional singer and Sin-minyo is in the popular song genre. In North Korea, they say that reputation of minyo is natural way of handing down, Tongsok-minyo and Sin-minyo are put in the same category. Especially, they are interested in Tongsok-minyo. After 1993, Hyangto-minyo is getting more important but they are still given to Tongsok-minyo much more weight. It's quite different like we don't think that Tongsok-minyo is very important in the South. We can guess the reason why, first, Tongsok-minyo is a song with national reputation, second, the folk song is well known song in the whole country, third, Tongsok-minyo is emotionally cheerful and hearted song.
