Shinhwa set to comeback March 2012Posted: August 1, 2011
It has been 3 years since we’ve seen veteran boy (or should I say MEN because they are MEN, not boys) group Shinhwa together, and now their impending comeback is no longer a mystery! Shinhwa’s representatives released an official statement on August 1st saying that Shinhwa will release their tenth album in March 2012 and go on to actively promote it in concert and on broadcast programs.
Shinhwa was on an indefinite hiatus since 2008 due to members fulfilling their compulsory military service with Eric and Dong-wan finishing their service the earliest in 2010, Hye-sung exempt from service, Jun Jin and Andy having completed their service by 2011, and Min-woo still serving. During that span of time, members have also been engaging in numerous solo and joint ventures including dramas, musical projects, and stints on variety shows.
While these guys have been able to maintain their presence through various outlets and there’s no discounting the fact that they’re the longest standing male group in KPOP (13 years!?!), will Shinhwa be able to comeback strong in this current landscape of fresh, sparkly young boy bands? I’m definitely anticipating their return to the KPOP scene, but I can’t help but wonder…how well do you think Shinhwa will do? Can 2012’s gaggle of fangirls even be able to comprehend their awesomeness?
