Arirang is a Korean folk song describing the travails encountered by the subject of the song while crossing a mountain pass. The mentioned Arirang Gogae (=pass) is an imaginary rendezvous of lovers in the land of dreams. In this version JahYu puts the poetic mystic of the song into a bass-driven Dubstep context ready to make the dancehall enter the land of dreams.
The lotus is omnipresent in Korean culture. Not only the blossoms but also the roots, the leafy pads – the whole flower. It shows up in literature, art, architecture, music and even in food. The lotus is a symbol of Buddhism. Either pink or white, it can bloom in even the foulest water; it retains its beauty without letting its environment taint its pure nature. The flower signifies a spiritual paradise.
