Music: Hyon Kyong-il (현경일) 2015
Text: Jo Kwang-chol (조광철)
A motivational song about unity and following the Marshal’s guidance. In this case the title Marshal is clearly referring to Kim Jong-un, which we can infer based on the fact the song was created in 2015. I believe the first performance of it was during the April 27th, 2015 concert as a duet with Kim Yu-kyong and Ryu Jin-a. Both singers brought out the passion evident in the lyrics of the song with their performance, and I think they sing well together.
04.27.2015. Kim Yu-kyong and Ryu Jin-a. This is probably my favorite version of the song since I am a fan of both singers and I think they performed this song nicely.
Music video, Ryu Jin-a and Kim Yu-kyong duet. Same as above, but in music video form with Korean subtitles.
01.01.2018. This time rather than a duet there are several singers on stage: starting with Kim Ok-ju, Jo Guk-hyang, and Kim Yu-kyong and then Ryu Jin-a, Pak Mi-kyong, and Jong Su-hyang join in. Strangely, the camera never focuses in on Pak Mi-kyong and I almost missed her.
04.12.2019 Hwang Un-mi solo with State Merited Chorus. Hwang Un-mi’s vocals are higher and more operatic sounding compared to when Kim Yu-kyong and Ryu Jin-a did this song.
12.28.2016. A much more grandiose version of this song, with the Moranbong Band and State Merited Choir singing together. The full State Merited Orchestra also joins in with the Moranbong Band instrumentalists. It really drives home the meaning behind the lyrics when there are so many people singing together.
Chongryon Concert, 2016. I can’t find much information about this concert but I do know Chongryon is a pro-DPRK organization in Japan. I would assume this performance took place in Japan but I’m not sure. The performance initially features only a male singer until later in the song when two female vocalists join him.
