Before debuting, CRAZYNO worked with several music producers who told him that his style was somewhat “crazy” and that if he wanted to continue in music, they advised him to use a nickname. By combining “crazy” and his real name Zyno (pronounced “Jino”), CRAZYNO was born (in the Korean language there is no Z and it is replaced by the J, which has an approximate pronunciation between a Z and a J).
