"The Snow Is Falling", "Azaleas of the Homeland", "Rich Apple Harvest" and "Winnow Dance" are known as four masterpieces of the DPRK's dancing art.

Clarifying that short piece of dance is a suitable form for depicting human life, Chairman Kim Jong Il saw to it that its model works were wonderfully created.

Under his special interest and detailed guidance, "The Snow Is Falling" was put on the stage of a music and dance performance in April 1967, heralding the start of the creation of model dance works.

Through the perfect depiction ranging from the dance movements with the Korean manners of dancing as the main to stage backgrounds and background music, the dance work impressively showed the firm faith in the victory of revolution and the steadfast spirit of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army members who had been intensely loyal to President Kim Il Sung during the anti-Japanese revolutionary war.

The Chairman also guided the creation of the other three dance works ranging from their titles to dance composition, representation of heroines, stage costumes, props and stage art to complete them into masterpieces of the times with high ideological and artistic value.

The four dance pieces are textbook examples of the masterpieces of dance in the DPRK.

Having caused a great sensation at home and abroad, they are still popular among the audience.
