The South Korean national anthem arranged for classical brass quintet.

The national anthem of the Republic of South Korea is entitled ’’Aegukga’’. The title means ’’The song of Love for our Country’’. It is generally believed that the words were written at the end of the 19th century, either by the politician Yun Chi-Ho(1865-19460,or by the teacher and leader of independence movement An Chang-Ho (1878-19380. The words were originally chanted to the melody of the Scottish folk song ’’Auld Lang Syne’’. A new melody was composed in 1935 by Ahn Eak-Tai, who lived in Spain for a long time. ’’Aegukga’’ has been the official national anthem since 1948, the year of the foundation of the Korean Republic.

It is believed that the lyrics of "Aegukga" were written for the cornerstone-laying ceremony of the Independence Gate in Seoul in 1896 by Yun Chi-ho, a politician, or by An Chang-ho, a pro-independence leader and educator.[1] Initially, "Aegukga" was sung to the tune of the Scottish folk song "Auld Lang Syne", introduced to Korea by Western missionaries. The Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea (1919–1945) in Shanghai, China, adopted it as their national anthem. At a ceremony celebrating the founding of South Korea on 15 August 1948, the Scottish tune was finally replaced by the Finale of Korea Fantasia that Ahn Eak-tai had composed in 1935. The new "Aegukga" was later adopted by the Presidential Decree of 1948 by then-South Korean President Syngman Rhee (or Lee Seungman).
