[08.01.30][news] Andy's solo challenge: Never had singing parts in Shinhwa before

Shinhwa rapper Andy Lee Seonho (27), has never had any vocal solo parts in Shinhwa before.

Besides doing a cover of Lee Sang Woo's '100 Metres Away From Her' in Shinhwa's 2004 Winter Story album, he only takes on rapping parts. He is barely heard even when the members sing together in chorus.

Andy said, "I want to show that I can sing too, that's why in the year of Shinhwa's 10th anniversary, I decided to make my solo debut. After I set up my own agency in Feb 07, I wanted to undergo more training. For 8 months, I underwent lessons on breathing, pronunciation and revised other vocal techniques."

In his first album "Andy the First NEW DREAM", though fellow Shinhwa members Eric, Kim Dongwan, Lee Minwoo and other friends put in outstanding contributions, but Andy's efforts in his music can be seen by all. The album features his main track 'Love Song', the collaboration with Chae Yeon 'Timing', the memorable 'Lies' and 'Hope After Hope'. Andy expressed, "Shedding off the Shinhwa image and stepping out as a solo singer makes me very nervous, but it also feels like going back to the first page of a diary that I've been writing for a long time."


When asked why he chose to take up a solo career in singing rather than acting, he replied "Through the musical 'Music In My Heart' I learnt many things. I got through it without having the members around, and I relearnt vocal techniques too, that's why I started to think about singing. Since I like dance and music I chose to be a singer, and I want to keep the enthuasiasm I have to realise my dream.

Now 27, Shinhwa's youngest member shares some of his innermost thoughts. "Besides the Shinhwa members, I don't have any friends in the entertainment world that I keep in touch with often. When I go on variety shows, I usually only know Chae Yeon. In the past I've always given people an adorable and lively impression, and people tend to keep a distance from me and stay as just ordinary friends. The "cute baby" image is becoming somewhat of a burden."

"Now I'm at the age where I need to plan my life, I'm already reaching 30. As an artiste there are many obstacles and demands ahead. I've been reading quite a lot of books lately, and I'm not embarrassed reading about myself in the news anymore. I want to live in a more mature and fulfilling way."

[08.01.30][diary] Dongwan: Watching a movie!

Today I went to watch a movie with "Mr Hwang"
Because if I just went home after practice...Just like that I'd feel very empty

Cloverfield!
Remember there was a movie called "Blair Witch Project"? It's similar to that!
I like a type of game called FPS, so I like movies of this genre too.
Maybe it's better for people afflicted with the Irlen syndrome not to watch it.
Although it's very real and moves at a very fast pace... But it makes the viewer a little giddy too

No matter what
There are so many movies about doomsday and alien invasions. Scary...
Feels like that day is about to arrive...
It's so scary!

p.s. Haven't taken candid photos like this in a while! Mr Hwang took it! ㅎㅎㅎ


(*The Irlen syndrome that Dongwan mentions here, it's a visual perceptual disorder affecting primarily reading and writing based activities. Some symptoms as follows:

eye-strain, fatigue, headaches, nausea, including visually-related motion sickness, discomfort with busy patterns ("visual stress" and "pattern glare"), discomfort with extreme conditions of bright/dark contrast (i.e. backlighting), epileptic seizure related to strobing or pattern glare

everytime i translate dongwan's entries i learn something new LOL* )

[08.01.29][news] Andy's 1st jib: Never Give Up vid shows Shinhwa's 10-year friendship

*here's a super LQ clip: http://tv.mofile.com/6UF7GVQZ/ *

In Andy's first solo album which was just newly released, the MV for Never Give Up - a track featuring Shinhwa members - has become a hot topic amongst fans. Eric, Lee Minwoo and Kim Dongwan sang out their decade-long friendship on this track, making it all the more meaningful.

In the video, one can see the members participating on Andy's first solo album, clearly showing the friendship between them, and also real-life scenes from the recording. Although the members are all involved in their own solo activities, Shinhwa is still very much intact as a group.

Fans were all moved when the Never Give Up video was shown at Andy's first concert - by the memories and friendship between the members, the lyrics written especially for the fans and the real-life scenes of the members playing around with each other. This video is even more meaningful to Shinhwa who will be celebrating their 10th anniversary soon.

Apparently, fans who saw the video at Andy's concert were all moved to tears when they saw how the Shinhwa members are as close as family.

Besides the main single Love Song, Andy's first album also contains Never Give Up (featuring Shinhwa members), the dance track Timing (feat Chae Yeon), Shall We Love (feat Byul) and other tracks of different genres, and the album has received positive reviews so far.

After the release of the album, Andy has already presented himself in a lively stage performance on SBS Inkigayo on 27 Jan, which was his first programme. He will continue to meet fans through other programmes, variety shows and radio shows.

[08.01.28][news] 10th anniversary of idol groups Shinhwa and Fin.K.L

For 6-member group Shinhwa and 4-member group Fin.K.L, 2008 is a very special year for them. This is because 2008 marks the 10th anniversary of their debut, and all the members have achieved success and still remain very active in their careers, be it in terms of solo singing, acting and MC.

Both Shinhwa and Fin.K.L have been very popular since their debut in 2008. From then till now, all the members have branched out in all fields of the entertainment world. Just based on this alone, Shinhwa has been given the title of longest-running group as well as the "role model" for all idol groups.

Eric, Shin Hyesung, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan, Junjin and Andy started out young, between the ages of 18-20 years old, and are acknowledged as the longest-running idol group in Korea.

After their debut, they have released 8 albums without any change of members, and will be releasing their brand new 9th album on 24 March 2008, their 10th anniversary. Shinhwa differs from other idol groups in this aspect because their strong bonds of friendship and courage have held them together for the past 10 years.

Shinhwa's strongest rivals after their debut were popular groups H.O.T and Sechskies, but this only served to motivate them to practise and work even harder. In the process, this further deepened the members' friendship.

Shinhwa members have said at various interviews that, "although there are times that we fight among ourselves, but these arguments have made us understand each other even more, as long as we find out the cause of the problem and clarify the misunderstanding." This is another reason that the group has survived this long.

Some Shinhwa members are scheduled to enlist into the army this year, but industry sources and fans all believe that Shinhwa is unlikely to split up due to their strong friendship.

Besides in the past 10 years, Shinhwa members have started their own careers such as acting (Eric, Kim Dongwan, Lee Minwoo, Junjin and Andy) and solo singing (Lee Minwoo, Shin Hyesung, Junjin, Kim Dongwan, Andy) during Shinhwa's rest periods. The strategy of "staying together while being apart" has been a good way to motivate them to excel in both group and solo activities.

Indulging in luxuries, wine and rich food will never make you wealthy. (Proverbs 21:17)

Dont asociate with people who drink too much wine or stuff themselves with food.
Drunkards and gluttons will be reduced to poverty. If you all do is eat and sleep, you will soon be wearing rags. (Proverb 23: 20-21)

For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do -- living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. (1Peter 4:3)

Cigarettes i had completely cut off already.
Because it is a bad thing.. there was no reason not to quit so i cut it off..
But alcohol...
When it's in a suitable situation i will keep drinking.
But. Alcohol! Creates Laziness, self uncontrollable, make people tell lies.
Today because of the drunkness of the day before.
My whole body was in pain..

[08.01.23][Article] DoCoVo: Artists joining Shopping Mall "Territorial Battle"



DoCoVo: Artists joining Shopping Mall " Territorial Battle "


Since the beginning of this year, artist shopping mall industry has been observing immense activities, with DoCoVo and Eunee as representatives.

Fashion online shopping mall of JunJin and Lee Eun have rapidly expanded the markets, with quick changes in the fashion business.

Compared to ordinary people, the artists opening shopping mall have the advantage of absorbing quicker the latest brand information. Moreover, most artists can wear their own clothes, as a direct models; therefore can cut significant cost of operating. Naturally, through news reports and publicity, artists' name is also one of the main factors for benefits, as the best goodwill overall.

Li Huiying, Huang LOH, and The Dunyi taking billions of dollars in sales have captured everyone's attention.

Recently, besides a contract with the multi-brand clothes shop in China, Shinhwa's JunJin also opened his own shopping mall "DoCoVo", beginning his CEO's journey.

This month also welcomes Su Yu Fok with the opening of "Silver Apple" and Lee Tu with "ZZeny.com".

DoCoVo's Co-CEO Lee Eun has also operated " Eunee" shopping mall for two years, no longer a Chakra descent.

JunJin and Lee Eun have one thing in common, outstandingly able to model for their own products, and significantly improving their website's popularity.

As we can see, the shopping mall war has started with more and more artists to join in !

[08.01.25][news] Andy - Worried about whether his solo career will take off

Shinhwa member Andy, who has just released his first solo album "The First New Dream" has shared his thoughts about going solo. Andy has just held his first solo concert, The 6 Day Miracle, from 18-23 Jan at SH Club.

At the pre-concert press conference on the last day of the concert, Andy said "I was very troubled and worried about whethere I could have my own solo career, but the musical last year really taught me a lot, and given me the self-confidence to do it. Together with the support of the Shinhwa members, Chae Yeon and Byul, I managed to start off my solo project."

Having started out as an idol singer, it was Andy's first time performing at a small venue. Andy said, "I had a great experience performing in the musical which was also held at a small theatre, being able to breathe together with the fans and to sing while looking into their eyes."

"There were some unsupportive responses when I decided to have a concert with my first solo album, and although my self-confidence was shaken, the fans gave me the support that I needed. I want to thank the fans for this." Andy also mentioned that he will join Shinhwa in the 10th anniversary activities once his solo activities have come to an end.

[08.01.24] [fan recap] Andy - The First and his Birthday Party (some detail)

This is a fan account:

Hi everyone...

I just came back from Korea last night!.. It's my first time to Korea and also to Shinhwa's event. just noticed that there are some details that fan didn't talked about, so please let me share my story here.. just the part that weren't talked about... (if I put in wrong section, please let me know) ^^ hope it wouldn't bother anyone la. *^^* and sorry that I didn't have pics of Andy to share because of the rules and also where I sat was not allowed a chance too.. So, I could only take the stage pic when the party was over.



I think because my friend was in Korea, ,maybe she could get the ticket on the right side, it's row D, (4th row) eventhough it was seat number 22 - last seat on the right, it's worth enough.. Anyway, it seemed like I was on the wrong side - overseas fans supposed to be seated on the left, So, I'm the only Thai fan sitting among all Korean Fans! That's why when I held 'Thailand Sign', many ppl kept looking at me strangely)

Andy perf was awesome and cute..and his voice was really great...during concert staff kept walking pass me through the dressing room at backstage (my seat was close to the entrace of the room) and also the guard just stood there next to me ..(so I couldn't take any pics) and the cameraman oftenly blocked my view T_T Oh..what a seat!

But just as everyone has read, only Minwoo put in his schedule that he would go to Andy's birthday party but there were a surprise! Around middle of the con. (or past middle already).. I heard girls behind me screaming so I just turned back and OMG!... It's Eric and Dongwan sitting on the empty seat row F - just only 2 rows behind me!!...and no one blocked my view this time because row D and E got less seats than row F .....Eric wore sunglasses, but Dongwan didn't and he kept smiling to fans next to him...God... they looked so gorgeous! ^^ Andy often look at them from the stage too.. ^^ I was wondering whether Sungie would also come or not because I didn't notice him coming.. I also didn't noticed Minwoo too because I was concentrated on Andy perf...


Then, Andy chose one fan to come up to the stage (I think she's Japanese) and he sang the song and both of them sat on the bench..Andy put his arm around her shoulder, and the girl cried and Andy shed her tears!! before the girl left, Andy gave her a hug and he also said "don't cry" to the girl... how sweet!

From time to time, the fans kept screaming at Eric and Dongwan - though it was not that loud but could distract Andy a bit so both of them went inside the dressing room...


Then, it's about time for celebrating Andy's birthday.. and a surprise - Minwoo, Eric, Dongwan and Sungie showed up!!! **screamed****~~~ I was really really excited... .. so sad that Jinnie was unable to attend (is he in China??). And as a fan's recap.. Eric, Dongwan and Minwoo teased Andy when he was about to blow the birthday candle.. they were so cute!!... Eric tried to stand next to Sungie but Sungie tried to walked away *^^* but finally, he managed to stand next to Sungie... (Eric, Sungie, Andy, Minwoo and Dongwan)

And then, all 5 of them help reading the birthday card from fans.. but it's in Korean so I just couldn't understand. While reading, Sungie got sweat on his face from the heat of spot light, he walked to the staff to get tissue. So, one fan handed him 2 fans - meant one for Eric but Sungie teased him by taking 1 for himself and dropped 1 on the floor - he didn't pass to Eric.. hahahaha I saw Eric laughed and shy and he had to picked up the fan himself

Dongwan picked up one gift bag and there's a candy inside. when he saw it, he tried to hide the candy and kept it himself. - all fans saw and screamed *he was so cute la ~~

And then, it's time other teased Sungie - they asked him to show "Tell me" dance to fans... OMG.. Sungie was really cute.... but he danced only few seconds because he was so shy too.. oh..wish he would do crab dance too~

Then, all member went back inside, and Andy sang another song. .. suddenly.. Sungie ran out from backstage and kneeled before Andy to give him pink rose!.. Andy laughed happily and shy too.. And he finally threw that rose to the fan in the middle.... oh....*scream***

I kept peeking at the dressing room's entrance to check when the other members would leave. Minwoo left first - I didn't noticed when. Then Sungie was the second. The staff walked in front of him and Sungie was just only 1 meter away from me...*scream** and I also waved goodbye to him but he couldn't see because he kept looking down while walking out. Poor me~

Then, after a while, Eric left and I also waved goodbye to him but he wore sunglasses.. so I think he couldn't see either *poor me again*

And Dongwan left while Andy sang First Love - ah~~ my fav song.. so I didn't catch to give him a wave goodbye... *poor me again!* ...

The Encore song was "Eusha Eusha" everybody stood up and danced!!

I was really happy with Andy - how successful the concert was.. I totally understand now why he chose small hall for his concert. Wish Andy all the best la.

And the only sad things was that I went there ALONE! because my friends are not Shinhwa's fan so I just had to be there alone... *cry*~~ and the fact that I couldn't understand Korean at all! more cry~~~~~

Hope next concert in March, I wouldn't have to be there alone again!....

[08.01.23][fan recap] The members at Andy's birthday concert

*these are some excerpts from a Korean fan's recap...

and yikes eric cut his hand!!!! *runs to bandage his wound* but it sounds ridiculously fun!!! all teasing poor andy as usual LOL*

Just came back from Andy oppa's concert^-^

Although he was stressed from being 'alone', the concert was still very successful, and it was a really lively, cute and romantic concert~the atmosphere was really typically Andy oppa

He happily spent his birthday with the members too^-^

Since Minwoo oppa put out his schedule earlier, so we knew that he was turning up, but we weren't sure about the other members... Wow~ Dongwan oppa, Minwoo oppa, Eric oppa, Hyesung oppa all turned up, it was really a great surprise ^-^ (Such a pity that Junjin oppa didn't turn up…ㅠㅠ). After the fans' surprise event for Andy was over, the members pushed out the birthday cake, and it was so nice to see the members together once again~

They sang the birthday song together, and then lit the candles on the cake, but Minwoo oppa playfully covered Andy oppa's mouth so that he couldn't blow out the candles! Then he just laughed loudly. When Andy oppa was going to blow out the candles again, this time it was Eric oppa who did it ^-^ They didn't stop here, Dongwan oppa did it a third time~ Only Hyesung oppa didn't do it~

After that, Dongwan oppa seemed to be really interested in the knife meant for cutting the cake, asking lots of questions, then he asked why they were using a real knife, and even said that Eric's hand might get hurt~ and in the end Eric oppa's hand really got cut and bled!

It's been a long time since they're together, they've been so busy. Ah Dongwan oppa wore a beanie, a striped long-sleeved T-shirt and a scarf ^-^

At the end he said that his 2nd album is coming soon and said to look forward to it~ All the members were feeling warm, so they reached towards the audience and asked for the fans they were doling. One fan gave a pair of knitted gloves; although Dongwan oppa asked her "Are you mad?" he still took it excitedly and wore it as he said goodbye~

[08.01.23][news] Andy: I used practices to fill the loneliness without Shinhwa


"I filled the loneliness without Shinhwa with practices."

Shinhwa member Andy, who released his first solo album "ANDY the first New Dream" on Jan 18, expressed this sentiment in an interview on 23 Jan.

At the series of concerts that started on 18 Jan, he finally held his last show, and Andy expressed his nervous and emotional state of mind about the album and concert at the pre-concert press conference.

Having released his first solo album 10 years after his debut with Shinhwa, Andy said "I released the album only with the help and concern of many people. The important thing is to express my gratitude to the people around me and to the fans."

The presale concert tickets were sold out within 5 minutes, which is an amazing feat. Andy commented, "It was really an unexpected result. Actually I thought if the tickets didn't sell, I'd just buy them all myself, looks like there isn't a need to now." The audience broke into laughter at his comment. He added, "I have only the fans to thank for this."

Andy said, "The first live performance was really nervewrecking for me. I take on only rap parts with Shinhwa, and people have also said before that they didn't think I could sing. Perhaps it's because I've been singing ballads, so my singing skills have improved. I even imagine myself to be the lead singer of Shinhwa.... But Hyesung hyung sings really well, I'd be dreaming if I really thought like that. I should be ranked #5 among the members, just better than Eric hyung." Everyone present laughed at his last comment.

Having always been part of Shinhwa when he's on stage, it's naturally uncomfortable for Andy to be holding a concert alone. Andy expressed this thought about his solo activities, "Although I feel lonely, and like when I don't prepare the ending ment properly, I have to react to the situation by myself. I've been through lots of practice and frustration, just to show everyone how much I've improved."

In addition, Andy received messages from the other 5 members, saying that "Tomorrow's your last show, do it well". He said to this, "They don't usually send messages like these, looks like they got drunk last night", to which the audience laughed again. "24 March is the 10th anniversary of Shinhwa, we'll definitely hold a very meaningful concert", proving his dedication and love for Shinhwa.


◇Andy's Q&A session

# What are your thoughts about releasing a solo album 10 years after your debut?

- I've put in a lot of effort and practice, but I still feel that I have much room for improvement after listening to the recording. The fans though are really satisfied with it. In future I will show everyone my improvement.


# Please introduce your album a little

- Many people were thinking, would Andy really release an album? I gained a lot of confidence after appearing in the musical in 2007, and I did lots of vocal practices. I really learnt a lot then, and I thought it's time to release an album where I can try different styles.


# Duets with other singers?

- Firstly, Shinhwa members helped out, then Chae Yeon, Byul and other musicians also helped out. The success of my album must be credited to them.


# The reason for performing at a small venue?

- I'm attracted to small venues because of the musical. I can breathe along with the fans, and that makes me feel really happy. So when I had a discussion with the company, we decided on a small venue. Although I'm really nervous when I make eye contact with the fans, but I feel happy and contented at the same time. If I had the same programme for all 6 days it would be very boring. So I had a different theme for each day according to the colors of the rainbow and show different sides of me.


# How do you feel about selling out the tickets within 5 minutes?

- Ecstatic, it was completely unexpected. I was still worried if no one turned up I'd buy the tickets myself. Just like the theme of the concert, it was a miracle.


# The members came to celebrate your birthday with you on the 21st?

- I'm really grateful for the members who turned up to celebrate with me. After they watched the show they all left me very encouraging messages. The strange thing is that I'd get nervous if the members turned up. I wanted to perform confidently, but I still made lots of mistakes. But the members' words of encouragement, saying that they could feel that I'm really working hard, that gave me strength.


# How do you rank yourselves in terms of popularity in Shinhwa?

- I really feel I'm #6 in terms of popularity. I'm the last one that fans ask autographs from. (laughs)


# What are the upcoming plans for your solo activities?

- After the concert ends, I'll start the programme appearances. Although I'm nervous about that, but after 6 days of the concert I think I can do it well. There are plans for an overseas concert too. 24 March is the 10th anniversary of Shinhwa, and the 10th anniversary concert is going to a very important and meaningful concert. Please look forward to it.

With Eric Mun, Lee Min Woo, Kim Dong Wan, Jun Jin, and Shin Hye Sung plastering the front pages of entertainment news with their ongoing solo acts and romantic gossip, one may think that Andy, the group's youngest member, has been taking it easy over the last few years.

Here, the star who crazed his fans with his signature "heart dance" releases his first solo album, The First New Dream, exuding the singer's hidden versatility and good old chivalrous charm.

The First New Dream contains not only new songs but also already released cuts like Eong ddung han sang sang ("Irrelevant Imagination") (Track 10) from his earlier digital single. This catchy rap number is penned by Park Jin Young and features the vocals of Yoo Bin of Wonder Girls. There's also Gerjitmal ("Lies") (Track 11), a song from his musical Music In My Heart. Andy plans to spend the early part of 2008 promoting his new album, but fans of Shinhwa need not worry as the group is gearing up for their 9th album, to be released sometime in 2008 to celebrate - yes, Shinhwa's 10th anniversary!

[08.01.17][news] Idol group members head towards the big 3-O

*in korea you're considered as 1 year old the moment you're born, that's why korean ages are 1 year more than the conventional western way of calculating ages

but you know how they say guys are like wine coz they get better with age? our boys are premium grade wine!*



For Shinhwa members Eric, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan and Shin Hyesung born in 1979 who belong to the Year of the Goat, 2008 will be a meaningful year for them. This spring, they will be the first Korean group, who hasn't split or changed members, to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Eric, Lee Minwoo, Kim Dongwan and Shin Hyesung - who hit 30 this year - together with Junjin and Andy, made their debut 10 years ago with a different approach of being friendly and personable, instead of the conventional "mysterious" approach towards the fans. Thus, at their recent concerts, it wasn't hard at all to see their great interaction skills with the fans.

As the members turn 30, they are more focused on developing their own strengths while working on Shinhwa activities.. Eric and Kim Dongwan will concentrate more on acting acvities, while Shin Hyesyng and Lee Minwoo, who are also well-loved for their solo work, will continue working hard in their respective ballad and pop dance genres.

[08.01.19] [Diary] Andy, The nervous first concert


Finally the album had released, and started the 6 days first concert.

I still feel nervous and excited ^^

I'll really work hard to have a very good presentation on my first concert, but because it is standing on the real stage, so it was a little excited than when i debut...

First of all i would really, really thank you to all who came to watch the first concert.

To all who came to the scene today... actually i also made a confession secretly to everybody..

To suite the orange day title, I've talked about Shinhwa activities period topic, then when I suddenly talked about 4th jib when I was temporarily off from the group, my heart suddenly strike with a bolt a sudden... Although it have been really, really long, so i though i will be okay with it... but suddenly I just lost of my control.. Although I wanted to perform well on the songs that i have been prepared.. but, how should I put it. All those hard time and the existence of the performance stage today I would only stay thank you, a mixture of both feelings cling on together.... I think that i didn't... able to perform perfectly well to everybody....

After the concert ended, i am writing these words with sadness...

Me... i could do it better in the coming days right?

How should i express my grateful feeling to everybody on my first concert...

Although there's lots of regret on my first performance, but, even though, because there is support to me from everybody, giving me lots of encouragement, so i am really grateful. I will became a even harder working Andy...

And now left only concerts and my first album promo activities.... i will be preparing it in an extra serious mode, to bring an unregretful performance stage to everybody..
See you in Yellow Day tomorrow~~~

The pictures is being taken today on the concert scene, manager hyung present me my first album. It was being bought on the scene and as a prezzie to me.. ㅋㅋBecause i felt it was practically even better than any other present so i felt really really touched, just like that i capture it!!

[08.01.16] [News] The gathering of the 1st generation to 3rd generation idols

NO HOTLINKING AND PROPER CREDITS IF TAKING OUT.
THANK YOU.






Shinhwa, DBSK, SS501, Big Bang - A gathering of the 1st to 3rd generation idols

In 2008, 1st to 3rd generation idol groups of the Gayo world will all be part of the gathering of the idols, and they look set to light up the music industry once again.

Among the idol groups that are active right now, there's 1st generation group Shinhwa and there's also 3rd generation group Big Bang. With the passing of time, idol groups are becoming younger, and their scope of activities are also wider. This is especially so in 2008, and the intense competition between the groups can be seen very clearly.

Shinhwa will be celebrating their 10th anniversary very soon, and are preparing to release their 9th album at the end of March. Members of the longest-running group Shinhwa will also be preparing for army enlistment, and as such, members who are currently involved in their solo activities will take a break from their solo projects and reunite to release their new album.

(non-related info omitted)

Shinhwa will be making a grand comeback at the end of March, and start off their large-scale activities.

*ahn young min is the guy who writes and produces quite a lot of songs for shinhwa, and this is a blog entry from his homepage...

and while i thought eric was hibernating away...he was actually recording! chagiya i'm sorry for misunderstanding you...! i'm guessing that eric and minwoo had to get their parts done first coz eric would be preparing for whatever upcoming drama he's chosen and minwoo for his japan concert.. but whatever it is, SHINHWA FIGHTING! i'm all excited right now!!*

Shinhwa's 9th album is in recording right now..

Because it's their last album before they enlist, so everyone's working even harder for this.

Eric's and Minwoo's parts have already been recorded at the end of last year, the other members are recording right now.

That's all for now.

When in a busy period, normally will eat meals which looks unlike a proper food.
Hamburgers, Kimbab, Sandwiches, Ramen,
How the American survive by taking bread and meat only?
By looking at it so, our country's Kimbab looks really good!
The taste a little much stronger, with vegeterian as main, with less oil, and content rich fiber.~

Ahah~ Even if so, i will still think of Yoshinoya's beef rice set during the night.
Add an egg into it and stir it all up and eat! ^^!
Finally tomorrow is the day to record the song written by Youngmin~

Off to bed!

[08.01.14][news] Andy adds on an additional show for his concert on 21 Jan


Shinhwa member Andy, who will be releasing his first solo album on Jan 18 as well as holding a 6-day concert at Seoul's Taehak-ro, has added on an additional show on Jan 21, making it a total of 7 performances.

When he first decided to hold the concert from Jan 18-23 at Taehak-ro's SH Club, he had initially allocated Jan 21 as his rest day, but he finally decided to add on a last-minute show on Jan 21 to his already packed schedule.

The reason behind this is because the fans are all looking forward to his first concert, and many fans requested to watch the show on 21 Jan to celebrate Andy's birthday. To celebrate his birthday, overseas fans from countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong will be in Korea to attend Andy's concert.

A particular feature of this concert is that Andy has planned a different theme for each day and will be having different activities according to the theme, thus further fueling the fans' anticipation. Andy will have different activities and guests for his different themes such as solo singer, entertainer and musical actor.

Besides the Shinhwa members, other celebrities are also expected to attend the concert to congratulate Andy on the release of his first solo album.

As this is a small venue, Andy hopes to be able to have closer interaction with his fans, presenting his new songs while chatting with everyone, thus creating a concert with an intimate atmosphere. He has been busy everyday with concert preparations as he bears this objective in mind.

After he wraps up the performances, Andy will officially start appearing on programmes as part of the album promotion.

[08.01.12] Interview: Andy, starting up solo activities, 2008 is the starting year!



In the beginning of last year's December, Shinhwa held their last Japan concert. During their stay in Japan, 4 Shinhwa members held solo fanmeetings. Shinhwa's youngest member Andy held his fanmeeting on December 23rd in Yokohama. Just before the event happened, we were able to get a chance to interview Andy. Shinhwa's popular youngest member Andy, with a cute image, politely answered our questions. Like that, we were able to see Andy's sincere and mild personality.

--Congratulations on the success of your first musical, "Music in My Heart." You showed us your tears on the last day.

Although it was the last day, I did not feel like "It's finally over!" or "How refreshing." I think that over these 50 performances, I have grown compared to before I started this project. Before the performance, I really studied many things. The pictures of my co-actors, the tough practices, nervousness over the first stage, the possibility of messing up, all these thoughts came to my mind like a revolving lantern. At the same time I was intoxicated with encouragement such as, "Andy, you really worked hard." Fans also gave lots of applause, to the extent that I cried (laugh). I definitely want to give thanks to my 5 co-actors who helped create my image.

--Do you cry a lot?



Although it seems like Andy has few tears, in reality he has many tears. When Shinhwa got first place after their debut, when they received the grand prize at the end-of-the-year ceremonies for their 7th album, Andy was worn out from crying too much. And the third time is this time's musical. Because of these tears, Andy will surely work hard.

--You will also be holding a solo concert in January?

The concert will be in Seoul, from January 18 to 23. Although it is not a simple thing to hold the concert right after releasing my 1st album, I wanted to make sure I could have time to have fun and play together with the fans. Although the songs of each concert will be the same, the contents will be different everyday, so please anticipate it. This concert is a promise I made with fans, as well as a promise I made with myself.

--What about today's fanmeeting?

Dongwan and Eric gave me this advice, "It's very nerve-wracking. Although you might be very nervous, calm down and good luck." However, I am not that nervous. I want to quickly go on stage, I just think it is a good thing to be able to talk to fans about all kinds of things.

--You have tried many different things, what do you think takes the most effort?

I can't choose just one. In the present activities of a performer, there are so many things we can do. I have also become like this, doing music, acting, musical, I want to keep working harder. I want to be recognized as somebody who puts in all his efforts.

--In your solo activities, do you feel you still have the title of "Shinhwa's Andy"?

When I'm solo, It's just Andy. Shinhwa's youngest member's image is well-known, and I am able to have solo activities because of Shinhwa. From now on, Shinhwa will have Shinhwa's colours, and Andy will have Andy's colour, they will coexist.

--The things you have learned from the other Shinhwa members?

From Eric, rap and acting, from Hyesung singing, from Junjin powerful dance, from Minwoo stage charisma and showmanship, from Dongwan the ability to process (?) etc. We all come together as one and I think this is the reason Shinhwa exists. We make use of each of our personalities, and this has enabled us to do more things. Andy has Andy's colours, and in order to not disappoint everyone, please watch over me!

[08.01.09][trans] Brokore - Dongwan: Shinhwa runs in my blood, I want to keep singing


Kim Dongwan, a member of Shinhwa, Korea's No. 1 group - who will be celebrating their 10th anniversary this coming March - held his solo fanmeeting on 11 Dec after the Shinhwa concert in Tokyo. After the fanmeeting, Dongwan kindly did an interview with us.


Dongwan only slept 1 hour as he was nervous about the fanmeeting, and when we asked him "Is it ok to ask a few questions?", he replied "I'm almost dying" with a warm smile on his face.


Q: You're the only Shinhwa member to have a solo fanclub, is that right?DW: You can say that, but the other members had their own solo concerts too. I want to have a solo concert, but I haven't had the time to prepare for one.


Q: You sang a lot of ballads in your solo album.
DW: I said it during the fanmeeting too, I appreciate natural voices, without any additional sounds from machines. I watched this Irish movie called "Once" in Korea, and totally agree that music is also a language in itself. I'd like to produce an album that has the function of a language.




Q: And that is the reason behind your solo efforts?
DW: That's a different desire from the desire I have when I'm part of Shinhwa. There are always differences in terms of music and the way I express my music when I work on my solo or with Shinhwa


Q: What about your acting activities?
DW: Right now I'm in a situation where I'm short of materials. I often need to meet all kinds of people, drink, fall in love, quarrel, in order to be able to act, but I'm not in this state of mind at all right now.




Q: How was today's fanmeeting?
DW: The atmosphere was great, but it was a pity that I was so nervous and made many mistakes. There was a letter from a fan that wrote, "Although why that person is sad has nothing to do with me, but he saved me." I should work even harder after hearing that.


Q: You played "If I Ain't Got You" on the piano today, do you intend to release any piano recordings?
DW: I'm not at that level yet, but I'd like to work hard in this area, and start writing songs too.


Q: You talked about living in Japan for half a year after your army stint during the fanmeeting just now?
DW: That may still change (laughs). I want to continue learning Japanese, and I think that learning it in Japan will help me to use it more naturally and fluently. Also, I like Japanese movies a lot. When I come to Japan, I will practice my Japanese while going about my performances. If I were to stay in Japan, I probably wouldn't pick Tokyo. I prefer the mountains to the sea. Although I had some unhappy memories when I was climbing Mt Fuji, because it was raining heavily (laughs)


The next part of the interview will be published in Issue 15 of Brokore magazine.

Hyesung, Junjin sign on as highest paid models with fashion brand


Shinhwa's Shin Hyesung and Junjin have been selected as the models for a fashion label that will be breaking into the China market. The two of them will be demonstrating a mix of the androgynous mannish look and the feminine look, a style that is in vogue in Europe right now.

Shin Hyesung and Junjin were selected by Yeshin as the models for their new label "mutishop'Y BY CODES-COMBINE" which will be launched in Shanghai in March. They completed their photo shoot in a studio in Gangnam on 3 January.

Due to Shinhwa's popularity in China, Shin Hyesung and Junjin's endorsement fees thus are reportedly the highest in the market.

A spokesperson from 'Y BY CODES-COMBINE' said, "As representatives of the Hallyu wave, the different personalities and overall marketability of Shin Hyesung and Junjin are very highly rated within the market, this is why we decided to sign them on. We hope to be able to tag on the huge popularity of Hyesung and Junjin in China to attract the younger consumers."

The ads featuring Hyesung and Junjin will be seen in Chinese fashion magazines, on outdoor billboards, in shopping malls and other medium. With the launch of the label in March, the two of them will also be in Shanghai at the same time for fansigning events and other promotional events.

Hyesung and Junjin both expressed, "We're really happy to be the spokespeople for the label, and we feel that all this came about because of the fans' love and support. We will work hard."

Now Hyesung has already completed the promotional activities for his 2nd solo album released last year, and is currently preparing for Shinhwa's 9th album and his 3rd solo album. Junjin has completed the filming of the Chinese drama You Are My Dream, and is also in preparation for Shinhwa's 9th album and his solo album.
