SEOTAIJI is widely regarded as the most prominent and influential artist and cultural icon in South Korea, since his rise to prominence as leader of the group ‘Seo Taiji and Boys’ in 1992.

Current K-pop favorites like BTS (@BTS_twt) recognize SEOTAIJI’s influence on K-pop; BTS has paid homage to SEOTAIJI by covering his song, “Come Back Home (1995),” and also performed at SEOTAIJI’s 25th Anniversary concert, where SEOTAIJI passed them the torch as a globally-renowned K-pop artist.
YeonJeong Kim, Head of Global K-pop Partnerships at Twitter, said, “#KpopTwitter has everything fans want to know about their favorite current K-pop artists, but also understands the history of K-pop and how past and present artists influence where K-pop is today. SEOTAIJI is the originator of K-pop music scenes, and artists across K-pop appreciate his contributions to culture – and we want to help fans understand as well. Moving forward, we’re excited to continue partnering with SEOTAIJI to drive conversations about the deep history behind the genre of K-pop.”
