Even though the song aims to celebrate Korean culture and values, There aren’t many direct references to it in the song. Instead, most of it is a monologue of what the artists or rappers had to say about their life, the hurdles they faced, or just their rap in general. The mood or the tone of the song is that of confidence and pride. As the description of the music video states – “We look to this day (National Liberation Day) as the restoration of light for the country’s darkest times”, the song also maintains a positive outlook. The instrumentals are also kept simple. Bass and Trap constitute the most of it.

The music video begins with the Wikipedia definition of National Liberation Day. What follows seems like a montage of news headlines and videos related to it as well as the development that South Korea has witnessed over the years. From there, the actual song starts and the video then majorly focuses on the elements in daily life in the country. Different rappers find themselves in different settings that people usually find themselves in, like a PC Cafe, Karaoke or a Roadside Snack Stall. You also see Jay Park in a hip-hop version of hanbok.
