Commissioned by the Contemporary Music Ensemble Korea (CMEK) for gayageum player Yi Jiyoung, Eternal Pine (2008) is dedicated to Dr. Lee Hye-ku, who taught Chou about Korean music, in honor of the scholar's 100th birthday. The pine of the title is a symbol of longevity and the eternity of nature.

The work comprises in five parts, totaling twenty minutes: ""Prelude—Exploring the modes"", ""Meditation on Eternity"", ""Lofty Peaks"", ""Profound Gorges"", and finally a brief ""Codetta"". Composed using Western notation, the score includes a full English glossary of the symbols used to indicate various playing techniques. Originally composed for 18-string gayageum accompanied by a quartet of Korean instruments, Eternal Pine appears here in a 2017 version for a trio of Chinese instruments: di, pipa, and luo-gu.
