Dear Listserve members,  When I served a Fulbright in ROK in the mid-'90s, I noted a practice among (usually) older Koreans who, while hiking in the mountains, would loudly vocalize or shout.  It seemed to be some kind of artful or health-giving practice.  Does anyone have information about this?  Is there a name for it?  How prevalent is this practice?  Any information would be appreciated.  jk
