Your thoughts towards 10th Anniversary Concert?

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
