The gayageum or kayagum is a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument, wi

th 12 strings, though some more recent variants have 21 or other numbers of stri
ngs. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument.[1] It
is related to other Asian instruments, including the Chinese guzheng, the Japane
se koto, the Mongolian yatga, and the Vietnamese n tranh.
Gayageum are available with 13, 17, 18, 21, 22, or 25 strings
