This painting illustrates one of many games played in Korea during the 1800s. Two girls in traditional Korean attire can be seen practicing choo-cheon or swinging (추쳔). Both girls are standing on top of the swing facing each other. Some of the lead white paint has blackened over time. A title for the piece and an artist seal appear at the top center. There are 22 other watercolor paintings in the collection illustrating Korean games and rendered by the same artist, Gisan (기산) of Choryang, Korea.
