Date: 2013 February 16
Theme: ”Song for the Eternal Sun”, commemorating Kim Jong-il’s 71th birthday
Place: People’s Theatre
Audience: Officials and ordinary people
KJU not present
Choir: no
Published: Censored.
Quality: Video quality passable, slight problems with the audio

Compared with the birthday concert a year ago, this birthday concert was a much smaller affair. The choir was again absent. So was Hwang Un-mi. Jang Yong-ok assumed the central role among the star singers, as well as that of the announcer in the beginning and at the end. So Un-hyang was in a side role.

Most of the songs that UO chose for this concert had never before been performed by it, and many appear to have been rare songs, for which no information can be found.

30.05 오늘의 승리를 생각할 때면 Onül ye süngnirül senggakhal temyön At the moment of thinking today’s victory 今日の勝利を考える時なら
Composition: An Jong-ho 안정호, 2013. An is supposed to have been a vice director of the Moranbong Band already at this time, but this is a song that MBB never performed, and as I do not find it in YouTube, perhaps UO was the only orchestra that ever performed this. Most likely this was composed especially for UO.

Composition and lyrics: Kim Jong-il 김정일, 1971.
From the revolutionary opera A True Daughter of the Party. At that time the general meant Kim Il Song, as the opera tells the story of a nurse in the Korean War. After the death of the composer in 2011, the song has always been performed in KJI memorial concerts, and the reference is to him.
