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

The film is known, like many other silent Korean films, to likely be lost permanently in the destruction of the Korean War. Arirang was also the first Korean feature film and was produced during Japan's invasion of Korea.[3] The film also started the golden age of Korean films.[4] 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.[5]
