Eric, KimDongWan, LeeMinWoo, ShinHyeSung, JunJin, Andy formed as a group “SHINHWA” where they are the only group in the local which has not even changed a single member at all. Recently they are undergoing their anniversary activities and on 29th 6pm evening within 2 hours they hold their first day concert for “SHINHWA Must Go On 10th Anniversary live” in Seoul Olympic Stadium.

On the 30th 3:40pm before the concert which will start at 5pm, they hold a simple press conference. Below is the Q&A conversation.

Your thoughts towards 10th Anniversary Concert?

LeeMinWoo: First of all thank you for your care and attention. The number ’10’ had given us a large scale of strength, and it feels good.

Andy:It has been 10 years so long, feeling very happy. I would like to thanks to the members and fans, in the coming 20 years, 30 years SHINHWA will still be together.

ERIC: The related staff were going up and down, roundabout for so many times. Thanks to you all, if there is no any main problems occur we will be still together.

KimDongWan: If there’s not sincerity and open criticism within the members i think we wont make it together for 10 years so long. In the future we must still carry on, becoming the Asian most longevity group, to own a higher popularity.

JUNJIN: 10 years really fly real fast. Members and everybody’s help have come to a stop. In the future we will work harder in coming activities.

ShinHyeSung: “Being able to be together as SHINHWA in these 10 years, i feel happy and at the same time being proud.”

The motivation to be together for 10 years?

ERIC: Before we debut we already had live a 6 years life in the hostel together. At that moment we were together in every 24 hours, it’s even longer than the time we spend with our own family. The members one by one slowly understands each other. And now the member’s spirit and friendship are seriously like a family-like, because of this we had been together for 10 years.

ShinHyeSung: SHINHWA came back to hold a concert in Korea after 3 years, the title is about our 10th anniversary, we will present the 10 years memorial of SHINHWA to the fans. SHINHWA members of course would want to make the whole 10th annivesary concert like a Party together with the fans.

KimDongWan: SHINHWA member had been working on activities for 10 years and now we really want to carry on working as a singer. Because of this feeling the heart of caution and prudence, personally feel that this should be the highest peak of stage.

Please introduce your title track of your official 9th album which will be release on April 10th.

LeeMinWoo: Because it’s a 10th years annivesary, so it will be 10 songs. All the songs are sending out message of SHINHWA.

JUNJIN: The 9th album 50000copy of Special Edition which will be release on April 3rd had already sold out, it feels great.

Andy: The 9th album title song “RUN” is being compose and written my MinWoo Hyung and Eric Hyung. Please do listen to it often, thank you.

Summed up the characteristics of SHINHWA’s music
ShinHyeSung: At the current i think that the fans are more passionate towards the stage Pop Dance than our music and songs. But our musics are still always specially pick and prepared, we work hard to gather the music which songs the energetic life of SHINHWA. In this period we will show more on our manly beauty and charm in music, in the future too we will work hard on choosing the best music for everybody.

Solo activities planning after SHINHWA 10th anniversary concert?

ShinHyeSung: I think i will be start preparing on my Solo 3rd album recording.

JUNJIN: New album preparation had come to an end. On April 26th in Japan i will hold my very first solo concert. I’ve dumped lots of my time on doing the planning on this concert preparation. And i have not been active as an actor for quite some time, if this year there’s a good script then i will be acting.

KimDongWan: I will be presenting my solo image on stage.

[08.03.24][news] Shinhwa’s 10th Anniversary: Time for the last concert

Posted in Shinhwa with tags , , , , , , on March 25, 2008 by koala41


Sharing 10 years of friendship together, the 6 members of Shinhwa will be celebrating their 10th anniversary on March 24. They said that the motivation that has pushed them on for such a long time is “our trust in each other”

As the longest-running group in Korea, they will be holding their 10th anniversary concert at Seoul Olympic Park on 29 and 30 March. As members Eric and Kim Dongwan are due to enlist in the army this year, this will be the last time the members will be holding a concert and releasing an album under the name of “Shinhwa” in the near future. After the release of the 9th album in early April, all group activities will be put on hold.

“It feels terrible having to send the hyungs off first. Maybe my tears will just gush out during the concert.” – Junjin

“Luckily it’s not an incomplete number like 8 or 9, but a complete 10. I’m kidding (laughs). Being able to spend the past 10 years under the name of ‘Shinhwa’, I think it has been the happiest time of my life. We can’t go back to our precious memories now, but maybe it will still be the same from now onwards.” – Eric

Shinhwa members were filming their MV near the fossil site at Hwaseong in Gyeonggi-do. And in order to get into character, their fake handguns were also equipped with fake bullets. Although they all had the poise, but their faces all wore the excitement of kindergarten kids as they played around with the fake guns. The plot of the MV involved Shin Hyesung, Junjin, Andy, Lee Minwoo and Kim Dongwan having to rescue Eric who had been kidnapped by a rival gang.

“Isn’t my hairstyle the same as my dad’s (Charlie Park)?” Junjin joked as he did the Rimario dance (the dance that Andy used to do on Love Letter). Hyesung was nearby looking at the mirror wearing his fake moustance. Lee Minwoo flashed his bronzed chest muscles, while Andy was pretending to shoot wearing a bright yellow shirt. Eric attempted to greet the Uzbekistan extras with the Spanish he learnt in high school, but was embarrassed when they replied fluently in Korean, “Hyung please speak Korean.”

Although Shinhwa’s group activities will stop for now, but members will all be busy with their own solo projects. Kim Dongwan and Junjin will release their 2nd albums respectively, while Lee Minwoo will be holding his solo concert in the US and in Shanghai. Eric will act in a drama before he enlists into the army, Andy will also feature in a drama after he finishes his promotions for his first album, while Shin Hyesung is scheduled to release his 3rd solo album in June.

So what do they think of the next 10 years? Shin Hyesung said, “We’ll be married and even when everyone becomes ahjusshis I’ll still remember Shinhwa forever. Although everything will change, but all the memories and experiences we had as Shinhwa, that’s probably the best thing in the world to us.”
