School Bell Song Posted by on Sep 27, 2011 in Korean Language

There’s an old Korean children’s song called 학교종, which means ‘school bell’. It’s a song about teaching kids that when the school bell rings, it’s time to start class. Korean people take their children’s education seriously. Although the song is sweet, cute and short enough for kids to remember, there’s a serious message underlying the song.

    I am so happy to have found this song. I am collecting old folksongs from Asia. My Korean friend gave me the name of this song, but we could not find the English spelling. Thank you so much!
