On the left is a musical score of Arirang from the Joseon Gokjip (Joseon Songbook) compiled in the early 20th century, the first score of Arirang by a Korean.

As of April 10, 1998, plaintiff claims that Arirang owes $321,091.90 in unpaid principal, accrued interest of $200,126.20, and late charges of $41,982.15, for a total of $563,200.25.
Plaintiff contends it demanded payment from Arirang, pursuant to the notes, and then demanded payment from the individual defendants under the terms of their guaranties.

Major flavors can be found in the seaweed-rolled kim bob beef or the multiple vegetable side dishes that encourage order-swapping.
