Description
The Ministry of Communications has issued the Postage Stamps of the Music Series which are full of Korean feeling. In this 8th Issue, as the successful result of the 7th South/North Premir Council and the endeavour to participate in the development of the Tuman River, we issue the Postage Stamp of "Guriun Keum-kang-san" (longing for the Mt. Keumkang) sung very much after the South- North Korea Red Cross Conference and "Guinoi" (A Swing), full of a National feeling identifying our aspiration towards the unificaion of the Korean peninsula into these songs.

1. Gurium Keum-kang-san (Longing for the Mt. Keumkang).
Lyrics by Han, Sang-ok and music by Choi Young-sharp. This song which shows the mind of the poet loving the mountains and the rivers of our country, and the composer's leaning towards nationalistic music, is the one of nine songs of the chorus "Arumdaun Naikangsan" (Oh, Beaufiful My Land), accomplished in 1962 at the request of KBS (Korean Broadcasting System). After the live broadcast in October of the same year by the KBS, it has been sung very much by our people and has become the means to show our will to be one country.

2. Guinoi (A Swing).
Lyrics by Kim, Mal-bong and music by Geum, Su-hyeon. This song which because of the lyric which paints one piece of the painting which depicts the use of a swing and the nationalism of composer who used Han-Geul(Korean Alphabet) for our name, rather than the Chinese Characters, is very popular because of the construction of the melody, like a Korean folk song.

As we issue the Postage Stamp which depicts the diamond mountain's Mt. Keum Kang, which we are likely to see when we go upward on a swing, we hope for the consistent praying of World people, for the unification of the Korean Peninsula.
