Arirang is a Korean folk song and is often considered as the unofficial anthem of Korea.
There are many variations of this song, and this particular version is by guitar prodigy Jung Sung Ha.
This song has stood against the test of time, and in 2012, was inscribed on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity programme by UNESCO.
To me, it is a lyrical representation of the grace and dignity of the Korean people who demonstrate tremendous resilience when faced with adversity.
