Seoul Arirang Festival Awards

Seoul Arirang Award


Seoul Arirang Award is given out to a person who has greatly contributed to the development of the cultural value and creative dissemination of Arirang.

5th Seoul Arirang Award is Kim Hui-Jo(1920- 2001), who is a music composer. When inter-Korean sports talks were held in 1990 to form a single team, the South and North agreed to use Arirang as single team music and Kim Hui-Jo arranged Arirang. The music was first played during the Chiba World Table Tennis Championships, in which Hyun Jung-Hwa and Lee Bun-Hui won the title. The new Arirang of the Korean people, which resonated at the awards ceremony, impressed many people and brought our people together.

5th Seoul Arirang Award Ceremony will be held on October 11th at 7pm in Festival main Stage in Gwanghwamun Square.
