Description of Title: "Arirang" is one of the most popular and best-known Korean folk songs, both inside and outside Korea.

Set in a room with the Shoji doors made of a wooden frame and a white Washi paper, a middle-aged married couple has a meal. On a Chabudai table with 4 short legs, Nabemono or simply Nabe, a Japanese steamboat dish traditionally cooked in a clay-made Donabe pot, is prepared. Around the table, a husband in a type of Kimono sits down on a Japanese Zabuton cushion, and a wife serves him with Japanese Sake holding a Chosi, also called Tokkuri, bottle. In spite of all these elements related to Japan, they sing a parody of well-known Korean folk song “Arirang,” and introduce a famous traditional Korean dish called KIMCHI, also known as gimchi or kimchee.
