Arirang is a 1926 film.[1] This film was directed by Ra Un-Gya and starred Woon-gyu Na in the lead role.[2] Its country of origin is Korea. This film is about a man's visit to a friend's house in the countryside, where he falls in love with the daughter.[3]

The film is known, like many other silent Korean films, to likely be lost permanently in the destruction of the Korean War. In 2005, there was a rumor that the film could be found in a recently deceased Japanese film collector's collection, but no further news was heard of these developments.

It's just a Korean film. South Korea wasn't even established until 2 decades after this movie was made.

I believe they mean it was made in present day South Korea or that it is owned by a company or establishment there.

I heard a story that people began to sing the titular song at the end of the film.
