ShinHwa

Summary: Shinhwa debuted on March 24, 1998.  The members are Eric, MinWoo, Dongwan, HyeSung, JunJin, and Andy.  While the band started off in SM Entertainment, in 2003, they left the company and moved to Good Entertainment.  The members have done their own solos, as well as ventured into acting and creating their own boy band, Battle, who crawled in a hole and died. Find the group’s discography here.

 

Shinhwa was one our first bands.  We really got into them after hearing their songs “Once In a Lifetime” and “Brand New.”  While we’ve kind of ignored their older stuff, we do like “eusha eusha,” especially after watching a live where Shinhwa realized they couldn’t keep up with their younger songs.  We don’t really watch a lot of videos with them (though we love seeing X-Man every so often for memories), and we only watch the music videos once, maybe twice.  We love Run, and we love every comeback they’ve done since getting out of the military to blow the rookies out of the water.
