Seo Tai-ji, Don't Call it a Comeback

Seo Tai-ji (Jeong Hyun-chul), a popular Korean singer, is reportedly making a comeback on the Korean music scene. Seo Tai-ji retired to the United States in 1996.
Seo Tai-ji is reportedly preparing his secon dsolo album. His first solo album earned him ₩2 billion.
The origin of the rumor came from the venture funds investing in Korea's music circles. A Korean fund-managing company in the U.S. selected Seo Tai-ji as the core of their plan to enter the circle of Korean popular music. They proposed that Seo should produce three albums, appear 10 times on television and/or hold a grand concert for ₩8 billion.
The company is negotiating with Seo through the group's former management company. As approximately one million of Seo Tai-ji's albums were sold in 1998, Seo is concerned with the proper timing of his comeback as well as the implications of new mediums like MP3s.
Seo Tai-ji reportedly refused blank checks from a Korean company which requested his appearance on their advertisement, and from a computer company that asked him to appear on their television advertisement.
