Lee Jung Shin Receives Nomination For Best Photograph At The “2019 INSP Awards”
A resonating photo of CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Shin achieves a finalist spot at the 2019 INSP Awards.
Shot in Myanmar as part of FNC’s volunteer activity in February 2018, one photo captured by Lee Jung Shin was submitted via The Big Issue Korea. It eventually landed as a finalist under the Best Photograph category at the 2019 INSP Awards.
Continuing to advocate significant achievement, Lee Jung Shin uses his passion for photography to make a difference. In June 2018, he held a public exhibit of the photos he shot with Myanmar children.
Titled Dandelion Flower Seed, the exhibit proceeds went to a foundation to aid in Myanmar children’s education. Additionally, the band-member-actor also contributed photographs to The Big Issue, which in turn was noticed by INSP Awards.
