Eric on idol group member withdrawals and contractual lawsuits, “It’s important to think twice”

T/N: There are loads of articles from this round of interviews, so I’ll be picking out the key points and omitting the repeated parts.

I wish they either adjusted the lighting or put a darker shade of BB cream on his face. His face and neck have different shades! -_-”’

To mark the conclusion of KBS 2TV’s Mon-Tue drama ‘Discovery of Romance’, Shinhwa member Mun Jung Hyuk did an interview on 16th Oct at a cafe in Seoul’s Garosu-gil, and shared his thoughts on the recent spate of idol group member withdrawals and contractual lawsuits.

As he commented on the secret behind the longevity of Shinhwa, celebrating its 17th year, he was asked for his opinions on the recent controversies. Responding to that, he said, “We also had times when we fought and hated one another too.”

While he did not comment specifically on the controversies, he advised, “Shinhwa is able to last this long not because we have any special secrets to success or we are different. The problem is whether you insist on being stubborn or whether you choose to persevere.”

“To be the better person is not just about giving in or enduring. We also had our share of stormy times, which we luckily managed to get through. But at the decisive moment, it’s important to think twice. Because this would happen to anyone.”

“Honestly I’m not in a position to give advice to anyone. We’re just thankful to the hyungs (managers) who work with us.”

  1. I think the lighting since the color tone looks ok in most of the other pics, even darker face in some😀

    Agree with what he said. Each group’s situation & dynamic is different from another. What worked for Shinhwa may not be fitting to another group.

    “The problem is whether you insist on being stubborn or whether you choose to persevere”
    “To be the better person is not just about giving in or enduring.”
    “But at the decisive moment, it’s important to think twice.”

    Well said!
