Published: censored.
Quality: not good. Cameras are directed so that the names of singers are not shown.

The video is fairly short, less than an hour; obviously a shortened version of the original concert.

Wangjesan yesuldan and Moranbong do not appear any more in UO concerts. The orchestra has now such an abundance of young female soloists from KWGU for performing light and sweet songs that the two veteran groups are not needed. Also other veterans have been moved to other places. Only So Un-hyang and Hwang Un-mi are left of the original singers who started in autumn 2009.
