In an interview with Krista Smith on the Netflix podcast Skip Intro, Yeun spoke about his deep connection to music and the church. Growing up as an immigrant kid in the Midwest, he found solace and safety in the Korean church, where he could assert himself and connect with others who shared his background and experiences.

This stripped-down, raw approach to his singing makes it all the more powerful and compelling.
