아리랑, 아리랑, 아라리요
아리랑 고개로 넘어간다
나를 버리고 가시는 님은
십리도 못가서 발병난다

Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo
Arirang gogaero neomeoganda
Nareul beorigo gasineun nimeun
Simnido motgaseo balbbyeongnanda

Arirang, Arirang, Arariyo
Crossing over Arirang Pass
The one who abandoned me
Shall not walk even 4 kilometers before their feet hurt


Based on a Korean traditional folk song, "Arirang"
Arranged by Jessie Yun
Beautifully performed by EWQL | FL Studio 20

Wow. Does feel like the choir's a bit distant, but my untrained musical ear wouldn't have picked up on any lost potential there if the comments below didn't mention it. Maybe different if it was in a language I understand. This was powerful!!! Really cool. Ten hours seems like a long time but assumably short for something like this.

Also inspiring to listen in on some orchestral music with a real message to it. Most of that which you stumble upon seems to made for general use.


JessieYun responds:

Hey Cyberdevil, thank you very much for the comment! Glad you enjoyed it. Yeah, there's a lot of flaws there actually, since this was only made in 10 hours (normally it takes about 2-3 days to finish for me). Glad you feel inspiring as well!

The choir sounds a bit unclear, but this is still awesome.

JessieYun responds:

Hey Steve,
Long time no see. Yeah, I understand about the choir xD there's quite some minor flaws on this track since I had to finish it in 10 hours;;; but I'm glad you liked it overall!

Yeah, I thought I fixed it all but not on Newgrounds yet haha. I'll do that right now.

Never mind to me that the mix was muddy or that it was done in 10 hours; it is a gesture of love, and that is why I favourited it. Also, you gave that EWQL choir a bit and a bridle and tamed it decently, from what I can hear.

JessieYun responds:

Hey Troisnyx,
Thanks a lot for the comment! I guess I'll have to take a look if really sounds muddy again. And yeah, I had quite a hard time teaching my choir Korean, hahaha. Thanks for the fav!

Good stuff!

Hi Spline-1337!
