Thought I’ll briefly mention this before starting on the article: Junjin had a small traffic accident while on his way to the first recording of the show this morning BUT no one was injured. Possibly some scratches on the cars but it’s a minor accident, so Junjin eventually went back on his way to recording, safe and sound ^_^ AND YES THIS SHOW IS GONNA BE EPIC!!!!!!
Korea’s longest-running idol group Shinhwa celebrates their 14th anniversary this year, and the 6 members have gathered for their comeback after 4 years.
With the upcoming release of their 10th album, Shinhwa will also be starring in “Shinhwa Broadcast”, their first-ever self-titled variety program on general programming channel jTBC.
Although the Shinhwa members have appeared on variety shows as a full group in the past, fans are looking forward to it as it’s the first time that a program has been titled after Shinhwa. While the Shinhwa members have been active on TV shows, the synergistic effect of having 6 members together will be greater.
Preparations for “Shinhwa Broadcast” are now taking place in strict secrecy over at jTBC, and other than the title of the program, no other details such as the broadcast date or program concept have been disclosed. The producer for the show said, “In order to live up to the viewers’ expectations, we’re working hard on the preparations. It will be a show where the Shinhwa members will be able to show off their wide variety of charms.”
Despite being caught up in the preparations for their comeback, the members have been taking a proactive role in the planning of the program, discussing about the program in their spare time and submitting their suggestions to the producers, sometimes even requesting for meetings with the producers.
In particular, “Shinhwa Broadcast” is helmed by PD Yoon Hyun-joon, who have produced shows such as “Music Bank”, “Healing Camp” and “Win Win”. PD Yoon moved to jTBC last year and has since then produced the popular “SNSD and the Dangerous Boys”, heightening expectations for Shinhwa’s new show.
Filming for “Shinhwa Broadcast” will officially kick off with Shinhwa member Lee Minwoo returning from military service.
