Jeokbyeokga (Song of the Red Cliffs) is one of the stories of pansori, Korea’s traditional epic chant. The story was inspired by the Chinese historical legend of the Battle of the Red Cliffs, which was contained in a book titled Sanguozhi Yanyi (Romance of the Three Kingdoms). Cheng Yu, an aide to Cao Cao, criticizes his master for fleeing after the devastating defeat at the battle. This book shows how a pansori-based version of a novel was made during the Joseon Period.
