The grand gymnastic and artistic performance “Arirang” participated in by 100,000 persons is the most successful work both in its scale and ideological and artistic value.

Wu Xiaohong, representative of the Guinness World Records Ltd. on a visit to the DPRK, said this after appreciating the performance now going on in Pyongyang with great success.

I have never seen such peculiar work as the grand gymnastic and artistic performance “Arirang” in any other countries, she said, and went on:

What impressed me very much is that it is fantastic and conspicuous.

I marveled at the might of the unity of the Korean people while watching the performance.

It is my view that such extravaganza can be created only in the DPRK wisely led by Kim Jong Il.

It is something worth boasting before the world that such peculiar performance is going on in the DPRK.

The Guinness World Records Ltd. recognized the grand gymnastic and artistic performance “Arirang” going on at the May Day Stadium in Pyongyang, the capital of the DPRK, as the largest one in the world.

The Guinness Book of World Records published by the company is distributed to at least 100 countries.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Korean people for having created “Arirang” as a great masterpiece of the world.

It is my hope that the performance will prove successful in the future, too.
