Fans could not hide their delight after receiving news that Korea’s longest-running idol group Shinhwa will be holding their comeback concert in March. This is because Shinhwa is returning to their side after 4 years, and celebrating their 14 years together with the members safely discharged from military service.
It has been confirmed that Shinhwa will be holding their comeback concert at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul on 24 March.
One of the largest performance venues in Korea, the Olympic Gymnastics Arena is also the place where Shinhwa held their last concert in March 2008 before the members left for military service. At the concert back then, Shinhwa’s Eric, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan, Shin Hyesung, Junjin and Andy said, “Shinhwa will definitely come back, and we’ll be together even if we die.”
The last of the members to complete military service, Lee Minwoo will be officially discharged in early March and Shinhwa will fulfill their promise to the fans at the 14th anniversary concert.
On hearing the news about Shinhwa’s comeback concert, fans expressed their excitement through the Internet and various forms of social media: “Shinhwa are promise-dols”, “I was already excited when I heard news about Shinhwa’s comeback”, “We’ll always be together with the oppas too”, “I must be successful in getting the tickets”.
Shinhwa was formed in 1998 and has maintained the original member line-up of Eric, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan, Shin Hyesung, Junjin and Andy for 14 years, becoming the longest-running idol group in Korea. Shinhwa is now recording for their album to be released in March.
