Yeominrak (Hangul: 與民樂) is a court song composed by King Sejong the Great (1418-1450) during the Joseon Dynasty period in Korea.


Yeominrak which means "Enjoyment with People" is created based on korean court music that the king shared to his people to be enjoyed together. This song was created during his 29th reign in 1447 and actually had its lyric, but lost for generations and until today only its music played. It is usually played in the Hangul Day in South Korea to celebrate the promulgation of Hangul by King Sejong also in religious services for the Ancestral Shrine of the Royal family, honoring the Royal Court, and for the Civil and Military authority.
