Arirang" is arguably the most popular and best-known Korean folk song, both inside and outside Korea. Arirang is an ancient native Korean word with no direct modern meaning. 'Ari' means "beautiful" (For example 아리따운 native Korean word means "beautiful", "lovely", "charming") 'Rang' can mean "dear".
Though Korea’s separation has continued for 60 years, the national song connecting both Koreas - unofficially and officially - is “Arirang.”
North Korea's Mass Games have been dubbed by the name "Arirang" as well.
