Trot singer Kwon Do-woon left his determination after coming out.
On the 6th, Kwon Do-woon came out for the first time in the music industry through his management company Midum Entertainment. This is the second case in 20 years after Hong Seok-cheon in 2000 when a male entertainer came out as a homosexual.
On the 7th, Kwon Do-woon expressed his gratitude through his agency on the 7th, while Kwon Do-woon’s coming out became a hot potato. “I had a dream that I wanted to give a positive effect, and yesterday I finally achieved my dream in 20 years,” he said. “I have no more rest, and I am very happy and regretful.”
Kwon Do-woon said, “I want to be a trot singer who heals the people’s sorrow when I am happy, as a song with joy when I am happy, as a song with joy, and heals the people’s sorrows and troubles after my respected seniors.
Kwon Do-woon said, “I majored in journalism and broadcasting at university while dreaming of becoming a host. As the first coming-out trot singer in Korea, I will try to continue my activities as a singer and host. In the shortest term, the 18th album to be released on October 30 “The two of us will accelerate our preparation for the activities.”
He also said, “On October 11th, on the occasion of World Coming Out Day, I would like to express my deep gratitude for the LGBTQ Human Rights Solidarity, who expressed my deep welcome for this coming out. I will become a celebrity Kwon Do-woon who knows how to fulfill his responsibilities as a public figure.”
Meanwhile, Kwon Do-woon made his debut in the music industry by winning three crowns, including Grand Prize, Lyrics Award, and Composition Award, at the 2nd TBS College Trot Song Festival in 2009 when he was a freshman in the Department of Journalism and Broadcasting at Sogang University. Recently, Jang Yoon-jung’s Latin dance trot song ‘Casanova’ was released, and a remake version of Chae-yeon’s ‘Two of Us’ trot will be released on the 18th album on the 30th.
