SEOUL, March 22 (Yonhap) -- Popular '90s R&B trio Solid is making a comeback with a brand new album, seeking to reclaim its past glory after remaining dormant for 21 years.

The group held a media showcase for its new self-produced album, "Into the Light," at the Understage in central Seoul on March 21, performing several new songs, along with a remixed version of the group's 1996 smash hit "Soul Mates."

After debuting in 1993, Solid soared to instant fame, selling over 4 million albums and churning out back-to-back hits, including "Holding on to Tonight," "My Friend" and "You're My First and Last," considered some of the most popular tunes from K-pop's '90s era.

The band, comprising childhood buddies from the United States, left the public spotlight after releasing their fourth album in 1997. The singers, all in their mid-40s now, didn't expect the hiatus to be this long.

"Back then, we basically lived in the recording studio. It was a time when computers weren't used to make music. We wanted to recharge after living like that for four years," lead singer Kim Jo-han said.
