Shinhwa is BACK!
I don’t consider myself an ardent or committed fan of them or anything, but they’re a Korean singing group that I’ve known since forever (ever since I got into K-pop?). From their Xman and Loveletter shows, to their banjun skits, and to their all-out goofy and hilarious interviews, those were the days I missed the most. The days when I’d obliviously skip uni revision just to watch their videos on youtube. The days when I’d listen to their songs repeatedly until I fall asleep. The days when I’d tell my friends about them and they’d look at me with weird glances. Nobody understood my craze or fandom, and I frankly didn’t care. But those were indeed precious and beautiful memories of my adolescence, one of my most enjoyable times, moments which I can turn back to for laughs and giggles. Memories which won’t and will never grow old.
Shinhwa are not in anyway, in my opinion at least (don’t bash me), great singers or anything. And they probably can’t even dance as well as before or any better, if you compare them to the crop of young dance groups nowadays. But what makes them special – their brotherhood. I know this sounds extremely cheesy, but it’s true that they’ve braved through hurdles of hardship to reach where they are right now, still in-tact, still as a ONE, still – Shinhwa. I’m sure they’ve had times of discord and disagreement, but I’m just glad that as an old time fan of their togetherness as an idol boy band, they’re still together now, as close as ever after 14 years.
I’m sure everyone has seen their comeback MV Venus, but I still want to share. ^____^ It’s very much their style, slick with simple choreographed moves (at least compared to dance routines nowadays). And the song’s obviously super enhanced and autotuned. But who cares, when the bunch of goofs are back for good? 😀
Well that’s the hot cool suave and nicely suited Shinhwa.
What about the REAL Shinhwa here?
You just cannot NOT love these guys. <33
