Grove music online, Feb. 10, 2017 (Kayagŭm [kayago]. Korean 12-string plucked long zither. The kayagŭm now occurs in two basic sizes: a large instrument (variously called pŏpkŭm, chŏngak kayagŭm or p'ungnyu kayagŭm) for court and aristocratic music, about 160 cm long by 30 cm wide; and a smaller instrument (sometimes called sanjo kayagŭm) for folk and virtuoso music, about 142 cm long by 23 cm wide; The kayagŭm has also been adopted in Mongolia as a native instrument (called yatga))
Britannica online, Feb. 10, 2017 (Kayagŭm, also spelled kayakŭm or kayakeum or gayageum, Korean board zither with 12 silk strings, 12 movable bridges, and a convex upper surface. Fashioned from paulownia wood, it forms a rectangle about 160 cm (62 inches) long and 30 cm (12 inches) wide; There are three variant types of kayagŭm, all associated with particular types of music--pungnyu kayagŭm for court and classical ensemble music, sanjo kayagŭm for folk and virtuosic music (such as sanjo, the music genre for which it is named), and "improved" kayagŭm for modern compositions. The kayagŭm is related to the Chinese zheng, the Japanese koto and wagon, and the Korean kŏmungo)
Wikipedia, Feb. 10, 2017: Gayageum (The gayageum or kayagum is a traditional Korean zither-like string instrument, with 12 strings, though some more recent variants have 21 or other number of strings. It is probably the best known traditional Korean musical instrument. It is related to other Asian instruments, including the Chinese guzheng, the Japanese koto, the Mongolian yatga, and the Vietnamese đàn tranh)
