Shinhwa made its debut in 1998. After its contract with SM Entertainment expired, it moved to a new agency and the members were eventually brought to sign individual contracts with different agencies, but even in the midst of their solo activities the group has continued to boast its characteristic brand of strong friendship.

Lee Min Woo said, “The members have been loved individually since 1998, but for this time, I want to use the expression ‘second takeoff’. Of course we’re pressured by our first comeback in a long time, but we’re not going to change to match the idol generation; we just think the fact that we’ve come together is something to be happy about in itself.”

“I believe it will be a welcome event for those who missed our music. I’m happy that all of the original members have come together without separating,” he added.

More than 200 fans from inside and outside of the country gathered to celebrate Lee Min Woo’s release. They held up placards reading ‘We kept our promise of two years, welcome back oppa (big brother)’ and ‘We congratulate the cool guy, Shinhwa’s Lee Min Woo, on his release’, along with bunches of flowers.

Lee Min Woo will be releasing a new album as Shinhwa this month. On the group’s 14th anniversary, March 24 and 25, the group will hold concerts in Seoul and start full-fledged promotions.
