The National Intelligence Service is working to replace Won Hoon-seok, which was produced by the so-called ‘Shin Young-bok’ during the Moon Jae-in administration.

On the 22nd, the National Intelligence Service began collecting internal opinions to select a new Won-hun. An official said, “The current NIS staff have pointed out that the current Won Hoon-seok conflicts with the national identity.”

The NIS replaced Won Hoon-seok on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of its foundation in June last year. The reason for pushing for replacement after a year is that the ‘Geogaedongmuche (Shin Youngbokche)’ modeled after the handwriting of the late Sungkonghoe University professor Shin Young-bok is inappropriate as the National Intelligence Service Wonhoon typeface, which mainly deals with North Korea intelligence.

It is reported that Kim Kyu-hyeon, head of the National Intelligence Service, also expressed sympathy for the ruling party lawmaker who pointed out Professor Shin’s pro-North Korean propensity and transfer history at the personnel hearing of the National Assembly Intelligence Committee held privately on the 25th of last month.

Within the NIS, there is also a voice calling for the reuse of Won Hun Seok, which was first used when the NIS was founded in 1961 without making a new Won Hun Seok, ‘We work in the shade and aim for the sun’.

It is said that Wonhoon won the first place in an internal competition for NIS employees. The Wonhunseok is designated as a national record and is not destroyed, but is kept within the NIS.

At the time of the Moon Jae-in administration, the police were also found to have used Professor Shin’s font for public events, causing controversy.

According to the data received at the request of the National Police Agency by Rep. Park Young-soo on the 16th, placards were produced a total of five times with ‘Shin Young-bok’ at the inauguration ceremony of the Commissioner of the National Police Agency.

In addition, it has been used in former President Moon Jae-in’s 2012 presidential campaign slogan, ‘People come first,’ and ‘Shin Young-bok’ is also used in calligraphy and paintings presented to Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Yo-jong.

Professor Shin was implicated in the 1968 case of the Unification Revolutionary Party, an underground party organization linked to North Korea, and was sentenced to life imprisonment by the Supreme Court for violating the National Security Act. He was released on special parole in 1988, after which he served 20 years.
