No Ordinary Man

Rock star Seo Tai-ji asks only to be "anordinary man," but fame dogs his heels.The yapping is sure to get louder, especially since he has broken almost five years of stage absence with a new solo album backed by a dazzling series of concerts.

Tai-ji's latest appearance was a "come back" show that aired Tuesday night on MBC TV. Music videos and performances, interview clips and skate board performances filled the program.

Seo returned to Seoul on Aug. 28 to seriously promote Take Two with a nation-wide tour and radio performances. The first was a concert at the Seoul Olympic Park fencing stadium last Saturday packed with 4,500 fans. He will also hold a concert on Sept. 16 at the main stadium.

Famous for defying Korean convention, Seo now sports red hair that would make Lola--the main character in "Run, Lola, Run," a German movie that has yet to hit Korea--proud. He dresses reggae, but his music plays a different tune.

Seo Tai-ji is back in full effect.
