Korean Ministry of Unification, via Cheil Worldwide South Korea has created 'Piano of Unification.' The project commemorates Korea's 70th anniversary of liberation from Japanese occupation, and aims to enhance people's interest in national reunification of South and North. After Korea's dark period ruled by Japan from 1910 to 1945, Korean War broke out in 1950 and lasted for three years destroying lives of people living in. Ever since then, the Korean Peninsula has been divided into two. As The Liberation Day, when all Korean races became one in joy for the country's freedom, as a momentum, the Piano of Unification aims to make people give a thought of national reunification and hope for the peace. 'Piano of Unification' is a project to create a piano made of barbed-wires from the inter-Korean border which is a symbol of the divided nation, and to exhibit and perform the piano in public.
