National Anthem "Patriotic Song"


Here is a story about how the national anthem came into being in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

On September 27, Juche 35 (1946), President Kim Il Sung assigned creators to a task of producing the national anthem "Patriotic Song", saying that the Korean people want to sing of their joy and honor of enjoying freedom and happiness in the liberated country. Korea is a very beautiful country and its people are a wise nation with a history of 5 000 years and brilliant culture, he said, adding that the Korean nation's pride of having a beautiful country and glorious traditions should be reflected in the national anthem.

The creators set his teachings to the words.

One day in June 1947 when the "Patriotic Song" was taken into deliberation, the President advised the creators to repeat the refrain of the song once more. Under his detailed guidance, the song could be completed as the one implanting the high national pride and honor and ardent patriotism.

Today, the people in the DPRK harden the will to do their best for the socialist country, singing the "Patriotic Song".
