10th anniversary production notes

2008.03.03 –  1st Day, Oseong Light Airplane Runway

We spent two days, 3 and 4 March to shoot the album photos for Shinhwa’s 9th album
Here we have Shinhwa, Mr Jo Seon Hee’s team, the managers, the stylists, the logistics crew and other crew members, making up more than 40 people on set

Everyone gathered at 9am at the light airplane runway at Oseong near Jebu-do
For the last Winter Story shoot, 3 members were late so we did the solo cuts first

Although it’s March
Although everyone was surrounded by the cold weather and sand
But the members all stuck it out in their thin layers of clothes
Special applause for M hyung
Reason?
Please look out for Shinhwa’s 9th album!!!

2008.03.04 – 2nd Day, ZoaZoa Studio

March, A Snowy Day

Ms Jo Seon Hee’s ZoaZoa Studio
It’s already become a boutique here
Everytime Shinhwa comes here everyone says “A boutique just moved here”

Yesterday there was a sandstorm, today it snowed. It’s already March!
I still want to thank everyone involved in the indoor shoot…
Although due to the cold weather, Shin-gun and An-gun weren’t in their best conditions,
But everyone still managed to finish the shoot happily and smoothy.
Indeed, the 6 Shinhwa members are vitamins!
The shoot carried on from morning until 11pm at night,
It’s worth waiting for.
Coming soon.

March 2008, STUDIO GoodSound

Ric brought his music equipment and turned up at the studio.
He got an SOS call from M hyung and immediately appeared to lend a hand.
Ric played out the rhythm, while M hyung arranged the melody…
We’re the Shinhwa producers team M & Ric.

During this time, Ric-gun was scribbling away in his lyrics notebook
Ric-gun said, “Isn’t this notebook cute?”

[caption: Parody Play]

The two of them have been up together for the past 10 hours
When the sun rose they were a little stoned, and were listening to the finished product

Ah…I want to become a jumper, and I wish that my bed is right in front of me now
The time now is (pic shows 6.25am)

Band Practice

Before the members meet up with the band to practise..
The band members have already practised twice or thrice.
It’s almost the same people who have been working with Shinhwa and M hyung for the last 3 years
Now they can already play Shinhwa’s songs with their eyes closed..ㅋㅋ

The youngest band member, the one who is singing backup vocals…
Is singing in place of the members…
He’s good at imitating the members’ voices while they are singing..
Maybe it’s because he’s been working with them for so long, so he’s gotten really good at it~~
rap…he does it exactly the same way as the Shinhwa members
So he had us all laughing in fits…what a great kid!!

The mission for the band today!!
To rearrange the songs into rock versions!!
The band members are playing a rock rhythm… relaxedly playing out a completely different feeling.
I Dr. Hong and Mr Lego from the music team are very happy with it
I wonder what Shinhwa will think of it! We’ll have to wait for the members to join in the practice.. ^^&

And…what song is this…
See it during the concert then~~~

When his throat hurts he’d take a deep breath on the oxygen machine~~

An-gun who is down with a bad cold
Walked into the recording studio, with a runny nose
“Ah… My voice can’t come out, how now?”
He was blowing his nose throughout the entire recording
And kept shouting “Ok recording GO GO GO”
Ah… But the recording took very long,
His back was hurting.

A Note From Eric

In the lyrics booklet of the 9th jib it wrote there that the lyrics to Freestyle #1 will be unveiled at a later date.
That’s because the track was originally planned to be an interlude or skit to Minwoo’s song.
Although I feel that it’s not really necessary to have the lyrics to that
But since it said in the lyrics booklet that it will be unveiled later, I’ll be unveiling it in a moment~

Although this album holds many different meanings to everyone, and extremely meaningful to everyone,
It feels even more special to me.
When we were back in SM we nervously did our first recording in the Ilsan recording studio.
We were very lost, very nervous, we learned a lot, we waited for a long time…
Compared to the rappers, the vocals had more parts to work on,
When we head for the Ilsan studio in the morning now
Exchanging glances with the dongsaengs, I’d recall the memories of us playing around.
It was amazing to see the recording studio and the equipment for the first time,
My most respected sonbae Yoo Young Jin personally came to the studio to do directing…
I’ve seen him on TV, from the days of cassette tapes to the CD era
He whom I’ve known through his music
Was in the same studio separated by only a glass door
When he gave me instructions over the talk box
It was really, ah… Now I’m really a singer… I could feel the reality of it setting in.
And when I listened to my MD (the popular storage media meant to replace the CD back then) with the completed songs
There was no other feeling that could compare to it, even now the feeling still remains very vivid.

Since then, 10 years have passed.
We’re still making music now, and we’re still working happily.
Our personal skills have undoubtedly improved,
And we have more time than we did back then when we were on our toes every moment.
And we naturally developed a distinctive style in Shinhwa’s music.
Actually Shinhwa’s music style is a gift from Yoo Young Jin sonbae
So I’m still very grateful to him.
That’s to say that we developed the current Shinhwa style after the 6th jib,
We tried a lot of new things because sonbae couldn’t possibly add to our style forever.
Of course there were many clashes of opinions between the members,
And also some difficulties that we faced because of personal activities.

When we moved to the new company and were all feeling lost because we faced new problems,
We received the unforgettable Daesang from each and every fan…
At that time whatever problems we had with the company or the members all disappeared.
Honestly from the bottom of my heart,
The members, led by me and Minwoo, worked very hard together to put out Minwoo’s song ‘Oh.
Of course I still like ‘Oh’ very much now, and though I feel that it was a pity that we couldn’t have had more follow-up activities for that,
I really thank Director Park Kwon Young and other GOOD colleagues who calmly explained and analysed the situation to each and every member.

Although I still feel for my work, but there has never been a piece of work that I’ve been 100% satisfied with.
It’s already been 10 years, and this time it feels rushed too.
Did we have to wait for one whole day?
When it came to my part, I wanted to be more efficient,
But in actual fact after finishing up on the work, I’d miss those times when I was working…
I was very worried when there were delays because the members were not feeling well…
Although we always would still persevere until the end, but this time the members and the GOOD colleagues stuck it out because of the concert too, it’s been tough on you all.
I especially want to thank Minwoo, Chang Un hyung, Bong Gu hyung who lasted until the day before the rehearsal without a change of clothes for 4 days in a row,
And the dongsaengs Woo Young, Il Ho, Han Na, Jong Hyun, Sang Hyun.
This time it’s still not something I’m 100% satisfied with,
We all know there’s nothing that can make the fans 100% satisfied.
But if there’s a time when we can release an album that satisfies everyone 100%
That perhaps would be Shinhwa’s last album.

I was very moved during the 10th anniversary concert,
Now I’m holding the very meaningful 9th jib limited edition with the hologram serial number 1, but even though I’m very moved,
I’m still feeling some regrets…
“How nice it would be if we released our 10th album during our 10th anniversary?” I thought about that before.
But looking at it now…
That we seem to be making up for 1 in the future and leaving a void now.
Just like when everytime work arrived in the past…
It was really… I already hate big CDs to begin with…
When I got it I gasped! It’s really big…
The paper quality is not of the standard of photobooks… but it contains the photobook for the CD? I do feel this way.
No matter what though I can’t squeeze it into my CD rack,
But it’s big enough for me to place it with the photobook on my bookshelf, that’s not too bad ^^

PS. I thank all the fans who gave me the music production tools for my birthday this year.
Although I couldn’t celebrate it with everyone as I had something on,
But I’ve already received the two presents the MV8800, MOTIF XS, and with them I wrote songs that I’m really satisfied with.
Thank you~

Yours truly, Mun Jung Hyuk

 The Concert Is Over…

Found this while clearing up after the concert!!
The photos that were set aside after the theme of the concert was decided…
Although it’s a little late… But we can relive “SHINHWA Must Go On”… ㅎㅎ

Traces of the concert are still around –
The concert rundown written on the whiteboard in the office –
This was the first draft – the actual concert programme went through a few rounds of amendments.

Although a week has passed since the end of the concert –
But just like everyone we’re not back to reality yet –

 After Service 1: Rehearsal

 2008 March 24 Evening.. Rehearsal..
Waiting for a particular member who is a little late
The other 5 members have already started previewing the concert videos
Suddenly we hear a loud “Mansae!” from Ric-gun. “I’m saved!!!”
Watching the spectacular final results of the tough filming session, they start their rehearsal all red-faced

The stage is much bigger than we expected~~ 6 members+12 dancers = A maximum of 18 people
It’s not easy trying to keep the formation intact during the dance rehearsal

We’re now halfway through..
A 10-minute break..
Preparing to sing one part in 늘 내가 원하는 것은 [I][COLOR=”Blue”](Neul Naega Wonhaneun Koseun / The Things I Always Want)[/COLOR][/I]
The thoughtful M hyung patiently goes through the part with An-gun~

It’s so rare to see them all sitting down and listening intently~~
This time round, from the concert rehearsal until the end of the concert~
They’ve been this serious throughout~

Ah~ hungry!
The 4-hour rehearsal has ended…
You’ve all worked hard~~~

After Service II: Rehearsal

We started the rehearsal with Throw My Fist~
For this concert, this is how it’s going to start..
I really want to tell you about a behind-the-scenes story but I can’t find the pictures!
After the members each make their stage entrance, they gather at a platform below the main stage –
They carefully step into place…Ric-gun was the last to reach!!
Sitting on the elevator platform the members shout “Let’s go, let’s go!”
And strike their most stylish poses with gusto.
Words aren’t enough to describe the feeling then… >,<
I personally feel that Shinhwa looked their best ever then.

Dum dee dee dum
We agreed not to choreograph any dance and go freestyle
For Hae Gyul Sah and Eusha Eusha –
During the rehearsal everyone starts dancing without saying a word
In the end.. After a few tries the performance for this concert was just explosive!!^^

Mischievous An-gun
This ball.. He used too much strength when he threw it off the stage.
It ended with an apologetic look from him – ♥

Ric-gun following Shin-gun around with the most innocent expression vs
A seemingly frustrated Ric-gun who pushes away Shin-gun who is trying to escape
Ric-gun WIN!!

Gido (Prayer) ~
The 40 children who’ve been memorizing the lyrics and pracitising for the past few days..
They got on stage and!! Got nervous again.
Although Shin-gun tried to make them feel more relaxed by standing in front to guide them.. It didn’t help, –;;
But.. after the efforts of the instructor, during the concert performance
They were all smiling and did really well~~ ^^

After Service III: Back Stage

During the concert, this is how it looked backstage –

It’s always like this, it’s like a battle going on backstage when they change.
In the changing room, 6 members together with their stylists, hairstylists,
managers were all running around in order to get them changed within the time limit.

The countdown started from the time the video started playing
In 30-second intervals…then when there was only 1 minute left, in 10-second intervals, shouting as they counted down
The pressure and anxiety got more intense as time passes –;;

Especially since there were no solo stages for this concert
So all the members were on the move all the time
Changing within 3 minutes while the video is playing, taking a breather..
Wiping down, drinking water, moving

At this time,
They couldn’t wear clip-on mics… we had to be careful not to lose them
So they were kept when the members came off the stage
During the change of clothes
Each manager already had the members’ mics kept.
This is the experience accumulated from the countless concerts!!

The members had gotten ready and were moving to their stage positions.
For this concert becuase everyone had to be on standby together right from the start
So each member was allocated a coordinator, to give them each instructions
It was very dark backstage so for safety reasons it was necessary to have torches to light the way!!

#Because it was really dark backstage so the quality of the photos and videos aren’t very good.
I’m afraid that you can’t identify them so I wrote their names -^^#

After Service IV: All The Best

The very meaningful Shinhwa 10th anniversary concert!! The scale is really zzang~!! (meaning very spectacular)

More than 100 reporters from publications and TV stations attended the press conference. It’s about 2 times more than we estimated?!

The buses that the fans too
There were about 70 of them..

The entrance was filled with flowers and gifts
It was tough for the ones who brought the teddy bears over..

The DVD cameras were all lined up in a row
This time we had the most number of cameras than we had for any Shinhwa concert. As many as 24!!
There was even a very good camera that’s usually used in live telecasts of sports events!!
There were also cameras that only focused on each member.
When the video is released you might be astounded~~ Please watch out for it^^

The crew members who have been working on Shinhwa concerts for the past few years
After almost all the audience had entered the venue the concert was about to begin – their nervous faces!

The dancers and band who have been working together for a long time

Shinhwa and these people have all created
The best concert~~ cchak cchak cchak!! (the sound of applause)

Although we don’t say it…
But we know all of us

At the same time while I’m living well with my children who are as adorable as rabbits, and my beautiful wife
Making music together…..

JUNJIN
Doing Shinhwa activities as well as solo activities,
What else would I be doing?
Maybe as a recreational sport I’ll be going to the billiards room
Or something like that.

ANDY

2 days & 1 night is a little short, so we can’t go anywhere too far. To somewhere like Jeju Island, eat some fish, drink some soju and chat….
….I really want to go….

JUNJIN
Go on a bicycle road trip across the whole country~
And we’ll sleep in a tent for 6…!

ANDY
We’ll take a plane to the US.
We’ll just fly there and fly back. Kekeke

==========================================================

 Q10: Lastly, to you, who have been protecting and looking out for us…

ERIC
Our families, the members, our friends, the staff, the fans
And you, who are reading these words now
I will pray for you every night before I sleep.
The precious destiny that we have shared for such a long time
Holding the title and record for the longest running group and group of fans in Korea!
As you wake up to a new day everyday, don’t waver because of trivial matters and instead look at the big picture,
Even though we can’t bear to part,
You still have to become someone useful,
And then using 10 years worth of experience and virtues
Let’s be role models for the others!

MINWOO
These are words that I usually find too precious to say to other people…
I love you

DONGWAN
Even if I don’t say it you would know, won’t you?
Thank you to everyone who has stood behind us for the past 10 years..
For the past 10 years it hasn’t simply been days and nights that flashed by,
When you look back, it will be good enough if you find yourself smiling, just like me~~~~~~~~~
As we will still be creating beautiful memories together in the future, look forward to it!
Let’s fill the album with memories that only we share!!!

HYESUNG
You kids who deserved to be praised after working so hard for 10 years…
Let’s celebrate among ourselves 10 years later too
And fully experience the fantastic feelings…
Thank you to all the fans…
Although I can’t really express myself well but I mean it with all my heart, you have to believe me~
In future let’s always~ be together!!!

JUNJIN
To my really beloved
Eric hyung, Dongwan hyung, Hyesung hyung, Minwoo hyung, and Andy…
Since we all understand even without saying anything
So even if I don’t say I love you, you would still know it right?? ^__^*
To Shinhwa Changjo who has stayed with Shinhwa through the 10 years
As well as local and overseas fans, wanjon saranghamnida (I completely love you).
For the next 15 years, 20 years
Please stay with us and support us too..
So that Shinhwa will be strong because of you
I want to sing for everyone forever..

ANDY
Thank you to the members who have been together with me for the past 10 years
I really hope we can stay together for 20 years, 30 years.
And thank you to the colleagues who have given us strength to come this far
And I’m eternally grateful to the fans.
Without the fans Shinhwa wouldn’t have come this far~~
In future Shinhwa will go on
And we’ll continue to work hard.
I love you all.

  1. ;;______________________;; reading this again after 4 years…….still tearing……………. WANJON SARANGHAMNIDA. 😄

  2. I’m a new fan of shinhwa and i cannot THANK you enough for such an awesome site!! this especially made me tear up! they’re reuniting soon and i truly hope all the shinhwa changjo’s unite to make more history and solidify the LEGEND ❤ (once a fan, always a fan right? ^^)… i loved the 10 questions! just wish there were more lol they should really write a book =) and release a comedy film amongst many other things ofcourse! I always wondered which 2 members stopped speaking to each other for a year (wannie mentioned it in the idol episode of come to play) and after reading this.. i suspect it must have been ricsung, perhaps? :/ either way.. their love can always be seen and felt! aint that true friendship 😉
    I'm so glad to be apart of this history making :).. this site is literally LOVE! ^^;
    Shinhwa Changjo fighting!

      1. Really?! 😐 i would never have guessed those two!! didn’t the two members not speak for like a year or something? :S i never saw anything between them! =( ahh im a newbie for sure lol .. thanks for letting me know! 😀

  3. Thank you for posting this…i found this blog when watching a clip of Shinhwa on youtube…and i’m reading it bits by bits everyday now..hehe..i started liking them only just last year..i was only six when they debuted…there’s something that i found in them that no other idols or groups that have,they’re really special.I’m just only a student now,but i think the feeling will never change…even when i become a mum…the six guys that will always bring hopes and happiness to all who are with them..stay healthy while waiting for Shinhwa oppas’ comeback..looking forward for it!!:P
