Shinhwa’s Nude Photos Resurface on ‘Win Win’
Thought today′s idols were much more scandalous than the first generation idols? Think again.
The most recent episode of KBS2’s Win Win featured all six members of the longest-running idol group Shinhwa and their undying wit.
In 2001, Shinhwa released a nude photo book, becoming the first idol to ever do so. In the photos, the members showed off their fit and muscular bodies, proving that they were the original ‘beast idols’. Some cuts even had Eric’s and Jun Jin’s assets peeking out of the water, which shook up the studio for a while.
When asked by MC Tak Jae Hoon on whether all of the members had agreed on the issue, the members said, “Yes. We were the first idol group to release a nude photo book.”
Kim Dong Wan added, “The concept for our third album had us take off our clothes. After that, President Lee Soo Man offered to release a nude photo book of us. Everyone decided to go for it after some thought, but Hye Sung was against it until the end.”
Bet you all are glad Hye Sung lost out and the members decided to go for it!
Shinhwa opened up on various touchy issues this day including plastic surgery, public relationships and acting controversies.
