Shinhwa What The Backstreet Boys Can Learn From Them

The boy group Shinhwa has been introduced in the monthly magazine The Atlantic as an example of an idol group with lasting power.

In the story titled What the Backstreet Boys Could Learn from K-Pop, the magazine said each and every member of Shinhwa is still active in the entertainment scene in their 30s – 15 years after their debut – unlike members of the Backstreet Boys, who have not been active in the scene or popular among the younger generation since the group debuted in 1993.

It said there is hope for the American idol group, saying, “Luckily, they have a model to imitate: Shinhwa, the Korean equivalent of the Backstreet Boys.”

Shinhwa, which debuted five years after the American group, released its 11th album, “The Classic” in May to show they can still coordinate a powerful and serious performance while each member shows a more comical or down-to-earth character on talk shows or other programs.

“What the Backstreet Boys can learn from Sinhwa is to get over the awkwardness of being grown men in a boy band and embrace the jokes thrown their way,” said the magazine.

“They over-rely on puns that only older fans would get, or worse yet, puns that will only serve to trigger sneers from younger pop fans.”

The group is scheduled to perform at the 2013 Shinhwa Grand Finale “The Classic” concert in Seoul for two days starting Aug. 3 at Seoul Olympic Park in Songpa, southern Seoul.

Korean boy band Shinhwa proved that their popularity has not declined despite their four-year absence, when tickets to their upcoming comeback concerts at Seoul’s Olympic Park Stadium were sold out barely 40 minutes after going on sale on Monday, reported Korean media.
The sextet have not performed together since their last concert in 2008, as some members worked on developing their solo careers, while others enlisted to serve their compulsory stint in the military.
“Thanks to our fans, we can ensure Shinhwa’s comeback after four years will be celebrated in style,” said Shinhwa’s leader Eric Mun in a statement.
“We are working on a great performance for the fans who have stuck with us for so long.”
Shinhwa (Korean for ‘Legend’) is often cited as one of the first modern Korean boy bands and is also one of the longest-lived in K-pop history, having been in the industry for some 14 years so far.
The band has produced dozens of hits like “T.O.P.”, “Only One”, “Perfect Man”, “Brand News” as well as “Once in a Lifetime”, since their debut in 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.

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.
