K-Pop idol groups are disbanding each year, but there’s one group that defeated the test of time. Here’s their secret method to not disbanding.
The legendary K-Pop boy group Shinhwa just celebrated their 20th anniversary. They’ve become legends as the idol group that has lasted the longest without ever disbanding.
With idol groups failing to withstand the 7-year curse and some of the hottest group disbanding each year… Everyone asks, “How did Shinhwa last over 20 years together?” Well, Andy revealed their ‘secret method’ is trust.
“We try to be considerate and understanding to each other. If we all trust each other than you naturally become family. That’s how we’ve been together for 20 years.
Whenever we’re asked for the ‘special method’, we answer that we’re family. The members of Shinhwa sincerely love each other.
I always tell my juniors to trust each other. If you talk about your feelings often, you’ll become closer. That’s the secret to staying together.”
There’s not really one ‘secret method’, though. Shinhwa was basically able to last over 20 years together because they trust each other to always have the members’ happiness as a top priority. They have different desires and pursuits of happiness in life, but they stand by each others’ decisions as brothers not business partners.
“We all have different ways of pursuing what we want, and we all have different pursuits of happiness. It saddens me to see the idol groups disbanding these days.
I think the secret to continuing together for a long time is to be considerate to each others’ pursuits and pursuits of happiness.
Honestly, there isn’t a set method to continuing [for 20 years]. If there were a set method, wouldn’t everyone be promoting together forever?”
