Overwatch - Year of the Rooster Music Trivia
I don't know if anyone else caught this while Overwatch's Lunar New Year event was going on, but there were two different menu themes, one for Mei and one for D. Va, and the one for D. Va happens to be a section from "Arirang," a traditional Korean song.

To give some comparisons, first is a piano cover of Arirang

Second, Arirang, as heard in Sid Meier's Civilization V, using traditional Korean instruments

And lastly, the menu jingle used in Overwatch's Year of the Rooster event, if D. Va appears on the title screen
I'm not sure if Mei's theme is original or based on a Chinese folk song, but I think it's neat that they snuck in Arirang for D. Va's menu theme like that.

Looking over-analytically at things since 1996.
