The date for Shinhwa member Lee Minwoo’s official discharge from military service has been confirmed.
According to several industry insiders whom Star News spoke to, Lee Minwoo will be discharged from military service on 2 March. Lee Minwoo has been deployed as a public service officer with Seoul Station since Feb 2010.
With his impending discharge from military service, all of the Shinhwa members will have returned from the army, generating even more interest and excitement among the fans. This effectively kickstarts Shinhwa’s comeback plans in March.
In fact, it has already been planned for Shinhwa to release their comeback album when Lee Minwoo returns from military service. After that, Shinhwa will officially return to their fans after 4 years, with a concert held on 24 March at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena to celebrate their 14th anniversary.
Lee Minwoo, together with Eric, Kim Dongwan, Shin Hyesung, Junjin and Andy, formed Shinhwa in 1998, and have stayed together for 14 years without any change of members to become Korea’s longest-running idol group.
