North Korea - Arirang

In August 2007, the Arirang Mass Games were recognised by Guinness World Records as the biggest event of its kind. In recent years, the DPRK has opened up the reclusive state to foreign tourists to watch one of the many performances.

Kim Il-Sung famous quotation about Arirang: "South Koreans who have seen and praised the mass games should remember the hardship of tearful children. Teachers drive them hard with curses and orders to repeat and repeat. When the children return home in the evening, they can hardly walk."
