On March 20, Epik High‘s Tablo uploaded a nostalgic picture on his Instagram, with the caption, “Old photo. Around 17 years old. When I started to ‘write lyrics’ unexpectedly thanks to Kim Gun Mo sunbae-nim (honorable senior).”
In the photo, Kim Gun Mo affectionately has his arm around Tablo, and the rapper, who was just a high schooler back then, holds a steady gaze and pose, even while standing beside top-star Kim Gun Mo.
Back in 1997, around the time this photo was taken, Tablo wrote the lyrics to one of Kim Gun Mo’s b-side tracks, “Rainy Christmas,” from his fifth album, “Myself.”
Meanwhile, Epik High recently became the first K-pop act to be invited to Coachella, one of the biggest music festivals in the U.S., and will be performing on April 17 and 24.
