Japanese Internet Paper Introduces Popular Music in DPRK
Pyongyang, December 17 (KCNA) -- The Japanese internet paper Kyodo News on Dec. 8 in an article introduced development of popular music in the DPRK.

The paper said:

The DPRK is channeling efforts into developing popular music.

The performances given by women performers and vocalists of the Moranbong Band are applauded by Koreans.

By origin, Koreans love songs. Karaoke devices are being provided to service personnel of the units of the Korean People's Army, too.

Kim Jong Il, chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission, showed great concern for the development of music art in his lifetime.

He said that music pieces should carry contents for conducting revolutionary education of party members and other people and held that music without politics is just like a flower without scent.

The DPRK government is faithfully inheriting the music politics of NDC Chairman Kim Jong Il.

Now the song "Ode to the Motherland" is popular in the DPRK.
