Jung Yul-sung, a composer of the “Chinese People’s Liberation Army" engraved on each of the 1.3 billion Chinese hearts
Graduated from Uiryeoldan’s Military Political and Military Academy in 1934, he is engaged in anti-Japanese secret activities there, and then goes to Shanghai every Sunday to learn vocal music from renowned Russian musician Crono and professor of political affairs. Yul-sung, who had been in financial trouble, moved to Yan’an in October 1937 to attend an old school.
On the coast of the island, he will leave behind such songs as “Pallo County’s Progress" and “Yonan Song," which are loved by all Chinese people.
In particular, the “Paloinian march," which began strongly, was adopted as a military seat with great love and was ratified by the Chinese Military Commission in 1988 as a formal “People’s Liberation Army."
He overcame the difficulties of musical language transfer, which is inevitable as a foreigner, by mastering and learning all things of the Chinese people with the sincerity and diligence peculiar to Koreans.
During the Cultural Revolution in 1966, when all art activities were banned, including composition and performance, Chung’s burning passion for creative writing failed.
During this period, he completes the work of putting music to the 20th installment of Mao Zedong Thought, which is called the “Top Tower of Chinese Revolutionary History" with its grand, beautiful, and spirit-filled symphony.
Having loved and sang unceasingly, he fell down from high blood pressure while fishing in a canal near Beijing on December 7, 1976, when the Cultural Revolution ended, ending his long, blue-and-blue artistic life.
