Jung Yul-Sung, the Three Musicians of China

Although it is a strange name in Korea, a native country where he spent his childhood, he is admired by two million ethnic Koreans in China.

Jeong Yul-sung is a Korean who has been on the bandwagon since 1937 for his anti-Japanese struggles in China and outstanding musical achievements.

1990 Beijing Asian Games opening ceremony of the first programs and Kim Dae-jung during the June 15 Joint Declaration in 2000, president and North Korean leader Kim Jong-il’s historic music resonate in the first meeting.If this was all his songs well for his musical presence in China and North Korea.

He was born the youngest of four sons and one daughter in 1914 in Gwangju City, where he spent his life in the turbulent Chinese history of the anti-Japanese independence struggle, national construction, and cultural revolution.

After graduating from Soongil Primary School in Gwangju, she entered Shinheung Middle School in Jeonju, but after finishing her studies due to her father’s sudden death, Yul-sung will follow her third brother to China in the spring of 1933.

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.
