[12.07.08] Shinhwa are provoking their fans? “We can’t even talk about marriage”

Shinhwa members have caught attention for their cute complaints regarding the topic of marriage.

At the press conference held on 6 July for their Beijing concert, Shinhwa drew laughter for their aegyo-laced complaints about broaching the topic of marriage. “Our fans have already gotten married and have gone on to have children, why do they tell us not to talk about marriage?”

Eric said, “We’re a male group, and many of our female fans have gotten married. The memories are even more precious with more and more of them doing so. During this round of promotions, some fans brought along their children to support us, and at the concert we also saw them with their husbands and children, so we feel really good about that. I think there aren’t any singers in Korea who have encountered this.”

But he went on to grumble adorably, “Our fans have gotten married and have gone on to have children, but they tell us not to talk about marriage. does that even make sense?”

He added, “If Shinhwa didn’t become successful in the industry, the fans who support and love us wouldn’t have confidence, and they’d find it difficult to tell people that they’re Shinhwa fans. So in order to not become has-beens, we pay a lot of attention to current trends. Thankfully this round of activities has been reasonably successful, so we haven’t become singers whom fans can only secretly reminisce about when there’s no one around. I think for us it’s a case where fans hear our music in the record store and they can say ‘that’s the group I like’.”

  1. I feel like they have the right to talk about whatever they want. They are grown men and they’re at the age where they are wanting to meet that special someone and get married. Nothing wrong with that.

  2. “…fans have gotten married and have gone on to have children, but they tell us not to talk about marriage….” really?! fans ask them not to talk about marriage?? hmmm…my take on this is that fans are asking them not to rush into marriage juz bcos they r of ‘marriage-age’, rather than asking them not to talk about marriage at all, I’m sure Shinhwa fans will want the members to find their happiness🙂 that’s juz my humble opinion…hee :p

    “Shinhwa drew laughter for their aegyo-laced complaints…”
    awww….our oppas are so cute!!! (rush to find the clip of the press conference to see their aegyo….hee hee😉 )

  3. I do not know and understand that the word “marriage” is taboo in the fans’s concept, thoughts,perceptions, image and on,on….We are humans being ‘ man and woman” which nature made to marry and raise family.
    Shinhwa in the music industry for 14 years I’m sure everyone is anticipating,expecting that they will marry someday and have kids just like us.They are also sons of their families and have also hope they get marry and a family.But in the eyes of the fans we sometime see them as eligilbles and charismatic personalities, so we are selfish to think that they should not be “married” and if Eric,Andy,Hyesung,Junjin, Minwoo and Dongwan found someone perfect to be their partner, I’m sure the fans will understand and respect their choice..
    Eric do not feel sad or disappointed with the fans feelings, just accept and be happy and if you’re to get marry I’m sure we’ll uinderstand and respect you.We ‘re your fans -support and happy for you.

    1. “….if Eric,Andy,Hyesung,Junjin, Minwoo and Dongwan found someone perfect to be their partner, I’m sure the fans will understand and respect their choice….”

      i TOTALLY agree on this….hee hee😉
