Mudanfeng orchestra is a female music group proposed by Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader of North Korea, in 2012. It has about 20 members. The structure of the orchestra is rich, including singers, violists, drummers, keyloggers, bassists and so on. Most of the members graduated from the cradle of famous musicians in Pyongyang - Kim Yuanjun music university.

With its outstanding appearance, relaxed and lively performance style and fashionable hairstyle, the peony peak Orchestra set off a fashion storm in North Korea as soon as it started its career, which was regarded as a new atmosphere in the field of North Korean culture by the outside world.

Jin Zhengen has watched the bands performances for many times and commented that the peony peak band has a revolutionary and militant creative style. Therefore, every time the DPRK has an important event or holds a large-scale performance, you can see their graceful figure.

For the Chinese people, the most familiar is Xuan Songyue, the head of the North Korean peony peak Orchestra and the sanchiyuan orchestra.

On December 10, 2015, the peony peak Orchestra came to China on its first overseas tour, having a friendly visit and performance with the meritorious national Choir of the Korean peoples army in Beijing. At that time, it was xuansongyue who was in charge of foreign exchange.
