At the age of 14, Seo Taiji played in several amateur rock bands. In 1990, at the age of 17, he was recruited into the metal band Sinawe (pronounced shee-nah-wee) to play bass. Seo chose to drop out of school, a system that he felt did nothing but corrupt the minds of youth, and became a professional musician.

After leaving Sinawe in 1991, Seo Taiji switched gears and formed the dance group Seo Taiji & Boys with dancers Lee Juno and Yang Hyun Suk. The group released four studio albums before officially disbanding in January of 1996. After the break up of the group, Seo Taiji moved to New York City where he worked on his first solo outing.
