Kim Jo Han appeared on MBC’s Radio Star and shared the back story behind the disbandment of Solid.

Kim appeared on the show along with Seo In Young, Kim Gun Mo and Sung Si Kyung for the show’s vocalist special episode which aired on October 26.

Solid dominated the music scene in the 1990s along with Ref, enjoying a lot of popularity after it debuted in 1993. But in 1997 the group suddenly disbanded.

“At that time, more than 100 fans always crowded in front of our residence. Some fans squeezed hands through the crack of the front door and stole my shoes,” recalled Kim.

When asked about the real reason behind the group’s disbandment, the singer said, “At that time, management companies were not as systematical as today’s. We couldn’t even communicate [with the agency] very well,” upon which, Sung Si Kyung, who was sitting next to him, burst in with the real reason: “They took all the money.”

With all the controversy over agencies today, it′s easy to forget about the ′old days′ when groups could barely make a couple of dollars, despite having the entire female teenage population at their feet. At least Kim Jo Han′s got some of his popularity back now!
