Composition: Kim Un-ryong 김운룡, lyrics Kim Jong-gun 김정곤, 1998
Vice director Kim Un-ryong is not a young composer, because he was active already in the late 1990s. The vice directors Hwang, An and U started already in the 1970s – early 1980s, so he may be some 20 years younger than they, i.e. in his forties.

There might have been also other songs, but they are not mentioned by RS. They all are old NK songs, apparently something that the children are used to.

Sonu Hyang-hui is apparently missing from the performance. Only Hong Su-kyong, Cha Yong-mi and Yu Un-Jong can be seen in strings.
