The longest running K-pop idol group in history, Shinhwa, recently topped a music chart, beating much younger idol groups. Debuted in 1998 with six members, the group is making a legend as their team name suggests. Shinhwa means the Korean word for myth or legend.
On the episode of Mnet’s M!Countdown that aired on April 19, the six-member group ranked first with the single “Venus” from their tenth album Return.
The legendary group demonstrated the return of the king by ranking first toppling the formidable younger groups including SHINee, Busker Busker, and 4MINUTE.
The six members cried out of happiness for being on top after a four-year hiatus. Their loyal fans also swooned over the long awaited pleasure.
The long-running group gave a fantastic performance although there was an injured member in order to pay the reward to their faithful, ardent fans. Then, the six members attributed their success to their dear fans and promised to keep doing their best.
Getting ready to appeal to Asian fans, Shinhwa is to start an Asian tour with the kick-off in Shanghai on April 30.
