2 weeks ago i finally got my Shinhwa the Greatest Artist 1998-2007 DVD. Here’s the pictures i have taken..

…also listening and addicted to Minwoo’s 4th jib: M Rizing. As i expected… the theme of the songs are different from his previous albums.. i admit, among the 6 members of Shinhwa, Minwoo’s the most talented in my opnion. He’s got a great voice, good at writing/composing songs, and he dances good. The others are talented as well in their own respective ways but it’s just Minwoo for me even though Junjin’s my favorite, LOL. ^^,

Here’s the latest MV of Minwoo: Don’t Trust Men

Here’s a picture of my Shinhwa 9th Album Special Limited Edition. ^^ Still wasn’t able to get my copy of their 9th Jib White Edition (Repackaged Limited Edition). Hopefully i can get it next week.

As for the dramas i’m watching….

Daily Dramas:

Cooking Up Romance

I’m getting impatient with this drama… Manbong still haven’t noticed Hye Gyeong. But in the preview for today’s episode Hye Gyeong seems to realize that she’s attracted to Manbong. I wonder how many episodes this drama have…

You Are My Destiny

Everytime i’m watching this drama i always get annoyed with the evil…hypocrite…obssessed character, Subin. Looking forward on the day when Subin’s evil acts will be exposed..

Mon/Tue Dramas:

Strongest Chil Woo

still watching it on KBS world.. Can’t wait till it finishes, lol. The story’s good but if not for Eric Moon i might not be watching it. hehe! ^^

Love Marriage

Have only watched episode 1but i immediately got hooked. I have it till the latest episode but due to Surgeon Bong Dal Hee i haven’t watched the succeeding episodes but i’ll watch it soon…

East of Eden

I have seen episodes 1-5 as those were the only episodes with english subtitles at the moment. I would not watch this drama if not for the many stars i like: Park Hae Jin, Lee Da Hae, Han Ji Hye, Yoon Jung Hoon minus Song Seung Hoon, lol! not much of a Song Seung Hoon but i don’t really hate him… ^^ The drama’s a mixture of revenge, family and complicated love story… very interesting but a very long one…

Wed/Thurs Drama:

Beethoven Virus

So far i have only watched episode 1 but i instantly got hooked with this drama. The theme of the story, which is about orchestra really interestes me. Plus… i love the cast.. jang Geun Suk & Lee Ji Ah… yay!! can’t wait for the subs…

from Left: Tazza, Painter of the Wind, Kingdom of Winds

Still haven’t watched these 3dramas becoz Tazza & Painter of the Winds still doesn’t have subtitles. As for Kingdom of the Winds…i still don’t have the time. I’m downloading it for my mom actually coz she likes Song Il Gook. ^^

Weekend Drama:

Mom’s Dead Upset

I enjoy watching this weekend drama on KBS World. I love the story of Yeong Su And Jeong Won. I also love the other characters except for the dramatic mother, Hanja, hahaha!! ^^

Dramas i’m watching on Philippine TV via GMA channel:

Be Strong Geum Soon

I love this drama mainly because of Kang Ji Hwan, hehe! ^^ I’m really anticipating this drama ever since and i even bought a copy without english subtitle and it’s in mandarin audio, hahaha! that’s how much i love kang Ji hwan.

My Husband’s Woman

It always make me want to strunggle the other woman every time i’m watching this drama… She’s one of the most despicable woman on Kdramas i have seen. ^^

Drama I’m watching on DVD:

Surgeon Bong Dal Hee

It’s my first time watching a medical drama… and i’m loving it.. The cast is good. I love Lee Yo Won, she’s so pretty.. Can’t wait to see the love story between the perfectionist doctor and the intern, hehe! ^^

I’m sooo…. excited becoz my kpop addict friends like me are planning A LOT!!
Irene and I will be leading our “PINOY FLY TO THE SKY GROUP” and our other friends will help and support us by joining our fansclub…
Honestly, it’s hard to decide on which fansclub i’ll go with but…
Shinhwa Philippines is inviting me to join them and wear an orange shirt on the event…
Then there’s the Big Bang Ph…. Suju Ph… and a lot more… so can’t i just wear a rainbow shirt for be to become a part of all the fansclub there, LOL! =P
But of course… i’ll still end up joining the FTTS group since me and Irene are the ones managing the fansclub…
So far we have 15 sure people who will be joining us… hope some more FTTS pinoy fans will join us in the event…

Another thing that makes me soooo…. HYPER this week is SHINHWA’s 9th Jib Repackage Album…
Yay!! They just released their 9th Jib last month and i was forced to get the Limited Special Edition since it’s limited with only 50,000 copies… and now here they are releasing the repackage edition, which is again limited to 20,000 copies only so i was forced to order AGAIN! hehe!
It’s really driving me crazy to support and buy Shinhwa stuffs coz they keep on releasing new stuffs almost every month…
I’m even planning on buying their new DVD called Shinhwa History 1998-2008… Arrrrggghh… It’s a bit expensive but i still want it becoz of it has 3DVDs with 1CD, plus it has eng subs…
I also want Minwoo’s latest DVD Concert, Andy’s DVD Concert as well as Sungie’s…
Then, a friend from ShinPhil told me a very good news the other night…
She told me that her friend is exchanging emails with one of Junjin & Minwoo’s booking agents and they’re asking if the two are popular here…
Then the next day she texted us ShinPhil sisters to keep visiting and posting at the forum becoz one of these days the booking agent will be visiting the forum to see if there are many fans…
they’re planning on bringing Junjin & Minwoo here for a concert…
I was sooo…. happy after hearing the news becoz out of the 6 Shinhwa members it’s my favorite member Junjin who might have a concert here, yipeeee…. i’m really….really….really happy….
I’m also glad that the other member is Minwoo coz i love all of Minwoo’s album and songs… ^^

[08.03.30][Interview] SHINHWA, “In the coming 20/30 years we will stil be together”

Posted in Entertainment News, Shinhwa with tags , , , , , , on April 3, 2008 by koala41

6 member male group SHINHWA debuted for 10 years and during the press conference before the concert they had expresses their thoughts towards 10. 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.

ERIC: I will be appearing in KBS 2TV historical martial art drama which will be broadcast in Mid June 2008.

Andy: On April there will be a concert tour in China, Japan and other countries, meeting up with the fans and also will be presenting my best skill in my acting field.

LeeMinWoo: M LeeMinWoo’s come back planning, i will be holding a solo concert in China on Mid May 2008. Recently i’m deeply in craze with my music.

[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.”
