Yoon Ji Sung Reveals Reason For Name Change, Funny Story From Recording Album, And More
On the February 28 broadcast of SBS PowerFM’s “2 O’Clock Escape Cultwo Show,” Kang Min Kyung and Yoon Ji Sung appeared as guests.
Yoon Ji Sung made his solo debut on February 20, and Kang Min Kyung made her solo debut on February 27. When asked to introduce his track, Yoon Ji Sung said, “It is a song that gets better the more you listen to it. I experienced it myself. I learned that it takes about 10 repeats to realize that it’s good.”
When Yoon Ji Sung mentioned that he cried while recording the track, Muzie asked how he was able to stop himself from crying. The singer made everyone laugh by saying, “I was able to pull myself together by eating jokbal (pig’s feet). It was conveniently time to eat.”
Yoon Ji Sung also revealed that he knows Kang Min Kyung from when they were under the same agency. Kang Min Kyung explained, “When Ji Sung was a trainee, I heard that one of the trainees is a Davichi fan, and that he would be making his debut as a member of Wanna One. That was Ji Sung.”
When asked about Wanna One, Yoon Ji Sung said that he still keeps in touch with the members. The soloist said, “I feel lonely. When we were filming Mnet’s ‘Produce 101,’ I was with 100 other trainees. When we debuted as Wanna One, 11 of us were always together. Now that I go to places by myself, I feel a bit lonely.” Yoon Ji Sung concluded, “But we still talk to each other very frequently.”
Near the end of the broadcast, a listener sent in a message that revealed Yoon Ji Sung’s real name. The singer was taken aback by the message, but he started to calmly explain the reason behind his name change. The singer said, “My name was originally Yoon Byung Ok. I ended up changing it because things weren’t looking up for me.”
Yoon Ji Sung concluded the broadcast by saying, “I hope that you enjoy my solo track ‘In The Rain.’ Many actors are putting in a lot of effort for the musical ‘The Days’ as well. Please continue to show your interest.”
