A book detailing the history of Arirang, the famous Korean folk song and spirit, in English has been published.

Written by Kim Yeon Gap, “The Culture of Arirang” is the first book to fully explain Arirang’s terminology and concept in English, thereby answering questions previously posed by Koreans and non-Koreans alike, as well as catering to the growing global interest in Korean popular and traditional cultures.

“The Culture of Arirang” is now available for purchase at large bookstores across Korea. It will also be distributed worldwide through the Korea Foundation, and delivered to Arirang researchers both home and abroad.
