Shinhwa will return to the music scene next March.
Shinhwa’s rep told Star News on 1 August, “Shinhwa will release a new album next March to kick off their activities. In conjunction with the album, they will also be holding a concert and making appearances on TV shows.”
Responding to some reports about an Asia tour in June, the rep said, “There are plans for 3 months of activities from March onwards. It’s still too early to discuss an Asia tour.”
With some of its members currently serving their military duties now, Shinhwa – the longest-standing idol group in Korea – has been on a hiatus. Lee Minwoo and Junjin are currently public service officers while Andy is now serving in active duty. Lee Minwoo will join his fellow members once his military service concludes on 6 March next year.
The rep added, “The members are having very positive discussions about their group activities next year. Recently they have been ironing the details for the setting up of Shinhwa Company.”
Having made their début in 1998, Shinhwa have headed into their 13th year with the original members. The members embarked on their solo activities after the release of the group’s repackaged 9th album in July 2008.
