Yanggak Island
Discs: Whistle

A North Korean love song for Valentine's Day

'Love is a many splendored thing
Love lifts us up where we belong
All you need is love
.' -Moulin Rouge

For all you romantics out there, today we bring you the classic North Korean love song 'Whistle'. The song is about a man who has been trying to catch the attention of a textile factory worker by whistling beneath her balcony on a regular basis. You'll figure out the rest from watching the entertaining video.

Happy Valentine's Day from Koryo Tours!
