Confirmed appearances on ‘Radio Star’ and ‘Win Win’… Endless anecdotes from their comeback process and 14 years of activities
Shinhwa is set to make a dash for the variety frontline.
After officially announcing that they will be resuming group activities at their comeback press conference on 5 March, the 6 members of Shinhwa have been receiving requests from producers of various variety programs. Appearances on KBS 2TV’s ‘Win Win’ and MBC’s ‘Golden Fishery – Radio Star’ have been confirmed. A rep for Shinhwa said, “The requests keep streaming in. For a start, we have agreed to appear on two programs. After this we will add on to the schedule with more appearances.”
Shinhwa has risen as blue chips in a variety scene dominated by idols. With 14 years worth of anecdotes coupled with overflowing wit, the members are dubbed the treasure troves of variety. An industry insider said, “Coming back after 4 years, there is endless material to be drawn from their comeback process and army stories. They’re likely to become the hottest icons on variety shows for some time to come.”
As the longest-running idol group in Korea, Shinhwa celebrates their 14th anniversary this year and will be releasing their 10th album this month along with starting on an Asia concert tour. Eric said, “Looking at the juniors lately, so many of them are really good and even we are impressed. Rather than to show off new things just to surpass them, we will show our most ‘Shinhwa-like’ side to the fans who have grown up watching Shinhwa’s performances.”
