DJ NewJeansNim Connects Buddhism With Youth
DJ NewJeansNim Connects Buddhism With Youth0Youn Sung-ho, popularly known as Pakgu or NewJeansNim, is a comedian and DJ who debuted in 2001. His stage name, NewJeansNim, is also his actual Buddhist name, combining “New,” symbolizing progress and adaptation in a changing world, and “Jean,” derived from a Chinese character meaning “to move forward.” As a practicing Buddhist, he promotes “young” Buddhism by blending electronic dance music (EDM) with Buddhist teachings.

Youn’s innovative approach has garnered positive reactions within and outside South Korea. His album Rebirth In Paradise topped the AURORA global music chart’s Top 50 albums this year. The album features songs with lyrics inspired by Buddhist creeds and addictive EDM sounds.

While some traditional Buddhists abroad criticize Youn for distorting the religion, South Korean Buddhists appreciate his role in making Buddhism appealing to the youth. Youn took the stage and celebrated Buddha’s Birthday with an EDM show on May 12, the last day of the 2024 Lotus Lantern Festival, highlighting his growing influence in South Korea.

In a Reuters interview, Youn expressed delight at changing young people’s perspectives on Buddhism, stating, “Whether it’s at a club or an outdoor performance hall, as long as it’s not illegal, I will go and perform to make it easier for people to accept Buddhism through my EDM performance.”
