The name 'PuReuMi' reminded us of a pine tree that was always green without falling leaves even in the cold winter.
It contains the meaning of 'Let's live a young and healthy life, dancing and singing without changing even in old age'.
At the time of its initial formation, the club was invited to opening and completion ceremonies and performed “pungmul.”
Currently, local residents have gathered and about 100 members are working together.
Currently, the site is located near the Boseong National Sports Center.
