HWPL, WARP Summit Day 1 
about "Peace of Arirang"

"Arirang" is a Korean traditional folk song designed as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.

It is known as "the world's folk song" with its beautiful melody that moves the heart of anyone who listens to it, transcending different cultures and nationalities.

The word "Arirang" originated from the Korean word "Ari-rang". The second part of the word "ryung" means to pass over a hill (mountain).

All of mankind dreamt and lived desiring a world of peace. It's written however, that in order to really enter into a world of peace, we have to pass over seven hills, just like the word "ari-ryung" states.

These seven hills are the origin of evil that brought upon chaos and war.
Passing over these seven hills is what will help in ceasing war, allowing victory over evil. We can enter into a world of peace after passing over these seven hills together. Let's overcome these hills together, then we can enter into a peaceful world.
