2020 Monthly Yoon Jong Shin ‘NOMAD PROJECT’

2019, it has been 50 years since I was born and 30 years since I began making and singing songs.

Since then, I have made and sang many songs, laughed and cried on various programs, and even created the company Mystic Story. I have diligently walked and ran to get to where I am now.

Then, I began the ‘Monthly Yoon Jong Shin’ project in 2010. Next year, in 2020, it will be the 10-year anniversary of the ‘Monthly Yoon Jong Shin’ project.

For its 10-year anniversary, I plan on participating in a project that I have drawn, dreamt of, and wished for in many songs.

2020 Monthly Yoon Jong Shin ‘NOMAD PROJECT’

As I have lived my considerably long life, I have sang songs about loneliness, longing, and bitterness. However, I actually keep those I love very close and have not left my place of comfort. A few years ago, I began thinking that I was a creator that had no actual experiences of the feelings I was expressing, such as those of being an outsider, unfamiliar gazes, and leaving.

After thankfully coming to an agreement with my family whom I love, and my Mystic Story family, I have decided to leave the place where I have lived and travel to somewhere unfamiliar for the 2020 Monthly Yoon Jong Shin project. I plan to explore a foreign place in order to create content from the perspective of an outsider.

Apart from the Monthly Yoon Jong Shin project song, I plan on [creating] content that captures the experiences in these places with Mystic Story as well as a few like-minded production teams.

I think the year 2020 will be a huge turning point for me, both as a person and as a creator.

I have been slowly preparing since last year and will consciously keep working until I leave in October of this year.

Although it is regretful, I will properly conclude all of my current programs.

I did not think it would be respectful to let everyone know right before I left, which is I am posting this message now.

Please think of this as the actions of a creator who is trying not to become someone who falls behind. I will prepare the 2020 Monthly Yoon Jong Shin project well.”

Yoon Jong Shin made his debut in 1990. After promoting as a singer, songwriter, and TV personality, he is currently the CEO and producer of Mystic Story.
