Seo Taiji to become father
“The singer wanted to tell the news to his fans as soon as he could, but he and his wife kept quiet at first,” said his agency, SeoTaiji Company, through a press release Monday.
Last year, the 42-year-old musician married 25-year-old actress Lee Eun-sung, who starred in Seo’s music video for the 2008 song “Bermuda (Triangle).”
Many Korean music fans welcomed the news, although some expressed surprise that such an iconic figure will become a father.
After debuting as a teenager in 1989 as the bassist for the rock band Sinawe, Seo became one of the most important pioneers of modern K-pop with his group Seo Taiji and Boys, which he started in 1992.
Seo’s agency also noted that Seo will be partnering with YouTube, posting more than 100 high-definition videos of Seo.
