Yoon Jong Shin To Step Down From “Radio Star” And Other Shows To Focus On New Music Project

Yoon Jong Shin has shared that he will step down from variety shows “Radio Star” and “Movieroom” in order to go overseas for a new music project.

On June 4, the singer posted on his Instagram the following statement.

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.”

2020 월간윤종신 ‘이방인 프로젝트’(NOMAD PROJECT) 2019년,태어난지 50년 노래 만들고 부른 지 30년 되는 해가 되었어요. 그동안 많은 노랠 만들고 부르고 방송에 나와 웃고 웃기고 울기도 하며 미스틱이라는 회사도 만들어 보고 참 부지런히 걷고 뛰고 달리며 지금까지 왔네요. 그러다 2010년 시작한 ‘월간윤종신’ , 내년 2020년 그 월간윤종신이 10주년을 맞게 됩니다. 그 10주년이 되는 해에 제가 많은 노래들 속에서 그리고 꿈꾸고 바랐던 한 프로젝트를 진행하려 합니다. 2020 월간윤종신 ‘이방인 프로젝트’ ‘NOMAD PROJECT’ 적지 않은 세월을 살아오며 제 노래 속에서 외로움 그리움 쓸쓸함을 노래해 왔지만 정작 저는 항상 사랑하는 사람들을 가까이에 두고 정든 안방을 떠나보지 않은 채 상상만으로 이방인,낯선 시선,떠남 등의 감정을 표현해 왔던 무경험의 창작자란 생각을 몇해전 부터 하게 되었어요. 사랑하는 가족들과 미스틱 스토리 식구들의 고마운 동의 속에 2020년 월간 윤종신은 제가 살아온 이 곳을 떠나 좀 더 낯설고 익숙하지 않은 곳을 떠돌며 이방인의 시선으로 컨텐츠를 만들어 보려 합니다. 월간윤종신 노래 외에도 미스틱 스토리 그리고 몇몇 뜻이 맞는 제작팀과 떠나간 곳에서 여러 경험을 담은 컨텐츠를 해보려 합니다. 저라는 사람의 인생으로서 창작자로서 2020년은 큰 전환점이 될 것 같습니다. 재작년부터 차근차근 준비해 왔고 남은 기간 착실히 준비해서 올해 10월에 떠나보려 합니다. 해왔던 방송들은 아쉽지만 그 전에 유종의 미를 잘 거두려 합니다. 갑자기 떠나기 직전에 여러분께 알리는 건 도리가 아닌것 같아 이 즈음 이렇게 글 올립니다. 도태되지 않고 고인 물이 되지 않으려는 한 창작자의 몸부림이라 생각해 주시고, 2020 월간윤종신 ‘이방인 프로젝트’ 잘 준비하겠습니다. #윤종신 #2020 #월간윤종신 #이방인프로젝트 #NomadProject
