    • SYNOPSIS
      Diasporas’ song still goes on.

      During the Japanese occupation period, suffering from famine and political chaos, Koreans were forced to deport or drafted to work in other countries. Now 150 years passed, it appears around 7million of those people and their families are spread in 170 countries. And so do their songs- ARIRANG. The songs let them not only forget about the painful memories but also remember their own country. There, a world-famous Korean-Japanese musician Yang Bang Ean follows the pathways of Korean diasporas as an inspiration, and performs his cross over music concert called ‘ARIRANG ROAD’.
