The hikers that you heard might have been practicing amateur p'ansori. You can find more information about this art in the wonderful book
Voices from the Straw Mat: Toward an Ethnography of Korean Story Singing, by Chan E. Park. Hawai‘i: University of Hawai‘i Press, 2003 .
This link takes you to a review that appeared in Acta Koreana
You can also watch a version of it in the film: Sopyonje (Seopyeonje) (1993)

> 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
