Cheonsa village, located in Uisan-ri, Ilro-eub, is the old location where the father of all Korean situation plays, the ‘Pumba', was born. Pumba expresses the hopes of all our people, who wish to close the history of frustration and tears, and open a new era of joy and prosperity.

Pumba was a poet who performed actively in cultural activities through the art federation at the town hall of Ilro-myeon in 1981. With the production and screenplay of deceased Kim, Sira, who was also born in the area, and passionate performance of Jeong, Gyusoo (the 1 st Pumba), the play became a record breaking performance, with the longest performance run of over 4,000 acts.

In the play, Cheon Jang Geun, who wandered across the country from the Japanese colonial era to the 1960s, tells us the story about ordinary people struggling with poverty and war and is not hesitant to express his thoughts about the dictatorship, labor disputes, reunification of Korea. This makes the views experience catharsis.

Gak seol (beggar) stands for understanding proverbs, which means that beggars who have nothing and are looked down upon overcome their situation by giving teachings of wisdom to us, who live ordinary lives. The most famous of plays would be the Pumba, which shows a side of the beggars who have continued on for 500 years.
