Description
The Ministry of Communications intends to make our music known more widely both at home and abroad by issuing postage stamps featuring it over the next few years. The more popular of our folk songs, children's songs, and classical songs, will be selected and postage stamps will be designed with their themes, with the music showing on the stamps. The following two stamps are the second of the series:

1. Half Moon (6.8. Eb major).
This is a children's song written and composed by Yun Keuk-young. Made in 1924, it was then not so much a simple juvenile song, as a national song that reminded Koreans of their statehood. Still loved by all the koreans, young and old, this song is dearly cherished, along with the "Spring of my home", as a fine piece of art that contains the soul of our nation.

2. Let's go and Pick the Moon (2/4 Eb major).
This song, written by Yun Seok-jung and composed by Park Tae-hyun, is a nursery rhyme and it cultivates imagination and curiosity, with its beautiful words versifying a children's world of mystery and yearning, with the light rhythm of its music suitably matching the verse.
