Pyongyang, September 8 (KCNA) — The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has all along used “the Patriotic Song,” its national anthem, which was created in Juche 36 (1947), for half a century.
The song is the symbol of solemnity, noble feelings, national pride and honor. It is a source of the patriotism and optimistic emotion of the Korean people.

Just after Korea’s liberation from the Japanese colonial rule he gave creators a direction for the creation of the national anthem and gave concrete guidance as regards the conception of words, content, appearance and depiction of the song.
The song written by Pak Se Yong and composed by Kim Won Gyun under his guidance reflected the ideas and emotions of the people of a new Korea.
The song which was played on the day when the DPRK was founded with due ceremony on September 9, 1948, has served as the national anthem of socialist Korea for 50 years.
The Koreans like to sing the song very much.
In Korea where the song is sung as the first item of the radio programme at dawn the leader, the party, the army and the people move as one in response to the song.
