So, what is the haegeum?

The (해금) is a traditional Korean string instrument, resembling a fiddle. It has a rodlike neck, a hollow wooden soundbox, and two silk strings, and is held vertically on the knee of the performer and played with a bow. The haegeum probably dates back to the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392).

The (hangul: 사해금; hanja: 四奚琴) is a North Korean musical instrument, developed in the 1960s. It is essentially a modernized form of the haegeum. So (hanja: 四) in sohaeheum means "four," because it has four strings. Its tuning pegs are like those of the violin, inserted from the side, compared to those of the haegeum, which are inserted from the front. The bow used is not used in between the strings but is played from the front like the violin also.

The haegeum is related to similar Chinese instruments in the family of instruments, such as the (二胡). Of these, it is most closely related to the ancient xiqin, as well as the erxian used in nanguan and Cantonese music.
