Pyongyang, July 22 (KCNA) -- The youths in the DPRK like to sing the songs created during the Fatherland Liberation War (June 25, 1950 - July 27, 1953).

In the period of the war, a large number of songs were produced to win popularity among the servicepersons and civilians. Typical of them are "Advance", "To a Decisive Battle", "My Song in the Trench", "Song of Coast Artillerymen", "The Dear Home in My Native Village" and "My Husband Became Hero".

Reflected in them are ardent patriotism, popular heroism and the strong will of the preceding generation who won in the war by displaying matchless bravery and self-sacrificing spirit, rallied close around President Kim Il Sung.

Those wartime songs in the 1950s are still now loved by the youths of the new generation.

Kim Kum Hyok, a worker of the Pyongyang Thermal Power Plant, told KCNA: Songs "At the Spring Site", "Song of Mt Maebong", "Nobody Knows" and "Off We Go, Brindled Ox" make people feel pleasure with cheerful and vivid emotion, even though they were created in the grim situation of the war. They show the revolutionary optimism of the victor generation.

Jong Un Jin, a student of Pyongyang Kim Won Gyun Conservatory, said: I like the song "Mungyong Pass" very much. Its composer created this famous song under such condition that there were no instrument and music sheet due to the enemy's bombing. Whenever I play the song with piano, I feel the noble ideological traits of the valiant fighters of the People's Army and war writers who burnt their hearts with ardent patriotism during the war.
