[12.01.19] Shinhwa to stage comeback concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena on 24 March

Korea’s longest-running idol group Shinhwa will be returning to their fans after 4 years, with a concert held in one of Korea’s largest performance venue.

On 19 Jan, according to an insider from the concert industry, Shinhwa will be holding a comeback concert on 24 March at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena.

The Olympic Gymnastics Arena can hold more than 10,000 people, making it one of Korea’s largest concert venues. The venue also holds a special meaning for the members as it was the place where Shinhwa last held their concert on 30 March 2008, the final concert before the members went on to serve their military duties.

At that concert, Shinhwa members Eric, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan, Shin Hyesung, Junjin and Andy said, “Shinhwa will go on for the next 20, 30 years, and we’ll be together even if we die.” 4 years on, this promise has been fulfilled.

24 March also commemorates Shinhwa’s debut. Shinhwa gave their first TV performance on 24 March 1998, and their comeback concert naturally becomes their 14th anniversary concert.

Shinhwa was formed in 1998, with members Eric, Kim Dongwan, Lee Minwoo, Shin Hyesung, Junjin and Andy staying in the line-up for the past 14 years, and has gone on to become Korea’s longest-running idol group. Not only have they continued to stay together, Shinhwa occupies one of the top positions in the music industry for their talents and unique character. This is one reason as to why Shinhwa’s comeback is generating so much interest.

Meanwhile, Shinhwa member Lee Minwoo is the only member currently still serving his military duties and will be discharged in early March. Shinhwa is now recording for their 10th album to be released in March.
