Singer Yang Hee Eun first released the song in 1979 under the title “Like a Green Pine Leaf in a Struggling Field” and changed the title to “Evergreen Tree” when Kim Mi Ki, who wrote and composed the song, released a compilation that re-recorded his signature song in 1993.

Kim Hyung Suk has newly arranged ‘Evergreen Tree’ and singers who decided to join in the good message are currently recording sequentially with the aim of releasing it this month. The song will be distributed free of charge. All of the recording processes by the singers will be filmed and released in the form of a music video.
