PRESS RELEASE from SEOTAIJI ARCHIVE
The Historic Data of Twenty years Is Reborn as “Seotaiji Archive”
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Seotaiji’s debut, a homepage “Seotaiji Archive” (www.seotaiji-archive.com) will be opened to the public on 23rd, March, 2012. This is one of the 20th anniversary events that the various domestic and foreign fans from teenagers to thirties donated their time and skills for around 18 months in Seotaiji Archive Project Team, which was formed on 17th, August, 2010.
The purpose of Seotaiji Archive Project is to establish a digital archive for Seotaiji’s worth and significance in Korean cultural history, which will become a window that provides the accurate knowledge and information to the public that contributes to expand the boundaries of cultural awareness to the researchers. Also, it recalls the memories of Seotaiji and many people who have loved his music for a long time and provides a chance for newly interested fans to experience the past vicariously.
Seotaiji Archive was designed as the users can directly upload their own data for two decades and will be operated as a place of communication for periodical, historical, and cultural bonds. It is a voluntarily-participated-mania-project that surpasses the regular notion of fan sites and develops a new field of fandom. For example, the script of the radio broadcast were typed into digital files by almost 150 fans who volunteered to donate their time.
The site contains the digital data of Seotaiji and his fandom from Seotaiji’s Sinawee days to the present 2012. The categories are broadly divided into SEOTAIJI information about his history, discography, show, etc.), MEDIA (TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, photo, etc.), and FANDOM (activity, collection, fan art, etc.). Visitors can check the Seotaiji’s twenty-year-history at a glance through overall 6,500 posts including almost 260 TV data.
All the data about Seotaiji and related files will be recorded and managed continuously after the open. Anybody can see, listen, and record the data and also can send the data to their twitter, facebook, and blogs anytime and anywhere. The site will be opened in both of PC version and mobile version.
Seotaiji Archive homepage(www.seotaiji-archive.com) will be opened
on March 23rd 2012 (At midnight of March 22nd).
Let’s give a shout-out to SEOTAIJI ARCHIVE!!
