Shin Seok-jung was a Korean poet. He was born in 1907 in Buan, North Jeolla Province.[1] After graduating from Buan public school, he went to Seoul and studied Buddhist texts for about a year in Gangwon Province, the predecessor of Dongguk University. In 1931, he began his career as a member of the 'Simunhak'(hangul:시문학, The meaning of 'poetic literature', a monthly magazine specializing in poetry). He established an unique position by publishing an idyllic poetry. He served as a schoolteacher at Buan Middle School and Jeonju High School. In July 1976, Shin Seok-Jeong's Tombstone was constructed in Jeonju Deokjin Park.[2]
