 Yoon Do Hyun's Turning Point

A big turning point for Yoon Do Hyun Band came in 2002, when Korea-Japan World Cup was held. During the World Cup, the media gave the name of 'the representative of Korean music band' to the group because its powerful and encouraging song Oh Pilseung Korea which means "Go Korea!" became hugely popular among all generations. It also adapted the most famous Korean folksong, Arirang, for a rooter's song. It changed the tune into a much more energetic rock style so that even youngsters could easily adopt the melody. Consequently, the band played a great role in the street cheering that made the 2002 World Cup well known throughout the world. Due to the popularity the band had achieved during the World Cup, it was later invited to 'The Performance of South and North Korean Artists' in September in 2002, which was very rare for a rock band. However, some critics say that since the World Cup, the band has put more weight on songs that might appeal to the public rather than keeping their own musical style.
