Shinhwa  (신화)  is ready to make a comeback with their tenth album featuring all six members; Eric Mun, Lee Min Woo, Jun Jin, Shin Hye Sung, Kim Dong Wan, and Andy Lee. Fans will be able to purchase the new album in March 2012.

All members have been discharged from their mandatory two-year military duties and now they are free to entertain their fans who have been waiting for them. They have a lot of activities planned and one of those plans is a 14th Anniversary concert. The group debuted March 24, 1998.

According to Wikipedia, after Shinhwa completed their contract obligations, they took S.M. Entertainment to court over the group’s name. Shinhwa wanted to join another label but S.M. Entertainment tried to stop them for using the name;however, the group won in court and  they were allowed to use the name Shinhwa with a new company.

Shinhwa owns Shinhwa Company on which they made history in the Korean music industry by becoming the first K-Pop group to own their own company in July 1, 2011.

It’s great to see a group still together and doing music again. Hopefully, TVXQ will do the same.

Shinhwa is the perfect name for this talented group, Shinhwa is a Korean word and it defines as myth or legend and Shinhwa are music legends.

Topic: Namie Amuro - G-DRAGON

Namie Amuro is causing controversy over her latest song “Sit! Stay! Wait! Down!”, listeners of the song have criticized the song for sounding similar to  G-DRAGON’s song “Heartbreaker”.

Amuro’s song “Sit! Stay! Wait! Down! is the second song raising eyebrows, her song “Black Diamond” brought up a debate that the song sound like Janet Jackson’s song “Feedback”.

G-DRAGON’s Heartbreaker has a faster beat than “Sit! Stay! Wait! Down!, however; the beat is a little similar but there’s some difference.

Namie Amuro also known as Amuro Namie.

DO YOU THINK THE TWO SONGS SOUND ALIKE?  OR DO YOU THINK THERE’S A DIFFERENCE? PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT. THANKS

Korea Broadcasting Service (KBS) is hosting this free concert event, the New York Korea Festival is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Korea for introducing Korean culture through music.

The list of K-Pop artists that will be performing is as follows: SHINee, 2PM, 4Minute, Sistar, Beast, and TVXQ (Yunho and Changmin). New York Korea Festival official website list TVXQ as Dong Bang Shin Ki which is the other name as well, however, the duo TVXQ doesn’t use that name. Dong Bang Shin Ki was used when the group was five.

It doesn’t seem that JYJ of TVXQ is going to be there. Their names have not been mentioned. Was JYJ invited and can’t make it or they were not invited? It would have been great to see JYJ and the duo TVXQ reunite for those two days.

Finally, the legendary group The Village People will be performing as well.

The K-Pop concert will not be held in New York this year, instead, it will be held in New Jersey due to the trouble of getting permits in New York. However, it should be a big turnout.

The New York Korea Festival Two-Day Free Concert  is hosted by Hwang Soo Kyung and Hyori Lee and it will be held Sunday October 9, 2011 and it starts at 6:00 PM at Overpeck County Park in New Jersey.
