“SEO TAIJI is the creator of K-pop music scenes, and artists across K-pop appreciate his contributions to culture – and we want to help fans understand that too,” said Kim Yeonjeong, director of global K-pop Twitter partnerships.

Seo was a former member of the Seo Taiji and Boys trio who introduced various genres of popular Western music to South Korean pop music in the early 1990s, leading to the establishment of modern Korean idol music.

The group also criticized Korean culture in their songs, despite strong pressure from the censorship boards at the time.

In 2017, the K-Pop phenomenon BTS honored Seo Taiji with their song “Come Back Home”, which they also performed with Seo during an anniversary concert.
