[한국대학신문 조영은 기자] Mokwon University (President Hyukdae Kwon) announced on the 13th that singer Jae-seong Lee, who graduated from the Department of Music Education, was appointed as a special professor.

In the 1980s, new special professor Lee Jae-seong was acclaimed as a top-notch singer-songwriter in Korea by performing songs such as ‘Candlelight Feast’, ‘Lonely DJ’, and ‘In Front of That House’. While attending Mokwon University, he participated in the 5th MBC University Song Festival in 1981 and won a silver prize for ‘My Dream and Love’, making his name known. In 1984, his 1st album, ‘One Guitar, One Coin’, sold 150,000 copies at the time and was also ranked as the KBS Rookie Singer King. Since then, the 2nd album ‘The Carriage to Tomorrow’ (200,000 copies) and the 3rd album ‘Candle Feast’ (400,000 copies) recorded high sales for each album released.

After founding an entertainment agency, he planned and produced albums for popular singers such as Jeon Young-rok, Tae Jin-ah, and Forman, and made his name known as a producer. Since then, he has taught students at the Department of Applied Music at Yewon Arts University, and has recently released a new song, continuing his activities as a singer and record producer. At the beginning of this year, it gained great popularity with the reverse run of the second title song ‘In Front of That House’ of the 4th album, released in the summer of 1987.

Lee Jae-seong, a new special professor, said, “I will do my best to help students who dream of becoming singers or record producers.”

President Kwon Hyukdae said, “It is an honor to have a senior who is a good example for juniors as a special professor.
