Don't miss my other anthems! So far, the parodies for the UK (twice), Canada, Germany, Norway, France, the US, Russia, Italy, Sweden, China, Japan, Israel, North Korea, Australia and many more have been released.
Aegukka (The Patriotic Song / 애국가 / 愛國歌) is the national anthem of North Korea (the Democratic People's Republic of Korea). It is also known by the first phrase of the song Ach'imŭn pinnara or "Let Morning Shine."
Before the founding of North Korea, Korea had as its anthem the current anthem of South Korea, but North Korea adopted this newly-written piece in 1947. The words were written by Pak Seyŏng (박세영; 朴世永; 1902--1989) and the music was composed by Kim Wŏn'gyun (김원균; 金元均; 1917--2002).
I mean no offense to the countries parodied, except in this case. I dislike North Korea. I would like to see Korea reunited under a democratic regime one day, i.e. that the South Koreans take over.
