Singer Park Il-nam: A Life of Reconciliation and Wanderlust
By Park Geun-hee, Journalist
Renowned singer Park Il-nam recently opened up about his unconventional lifestyle characterized by a constant search for peace and reconciliation.
In a candid interview on MBN’s ‘Scoop World’ aired on the 21st, Park Il-nam, known for his heartfelt songs like ‘Pure Love of the Reeds’, ‘A Postcard’, and ‘Missing Hee-ya’, shed light on his journey.
Reflecting on the success of his early album, Park Il-nam humbly shared, “It sold tremendously, around 3 million copies in today’s terms. But fame and fortune were never my goal. Do I own buildings now? Well, these days I prefer to wander and explore.”
Eventually, Park Il-nam withdrew from the limelight, even refraining from singing altogether. He explained, “I made a conscious decision to step away from the music industry. I didn’t want to bring any more disappointment or hardship to my family. Reconciliation demands sacrifice, and this was my way of showing it.”
Encountering Park Il-nam on the road, I witnessed his kind-heartedness firsthand. He paused at a farmhouse, lending a hand to the farmers. As he assisted with their tasks, he straightened his back and remarked, “Farming is no easy feat.” Before leaving, he carried the lettuce they had graciously gifted him in exchange for his labor.
Now 85 years old, Park Il-nam spends most of his time traversing various paths, embracing the solitude and serenity it brings.
