Shinhwa Fulfills Its Dreams with Its Own Variety Show
Shinhwa already had its official comeback press conference on March 5, but just 10 days later, on March 15, they appeared again in front of the press…in sweatsuits. What was going on?
On March 15, Shinhwa held a public shoot and press conference for its upcoming very own jTBC variety show, Shinhwa Broadcast.
Eric couldn’t seem to hide how excited he was about the show, saying, “We’ve always wanted a program with just the six Shinhwa members in it, and now we’ve fulfilled that dream.”
The same went for the other members. “We finished shooting the first episode, and after the shoot I was so surprised. In the past, the members didn’t go this far for shoots. I was touched at how sincere they were and how hard they worked,” Jun Jin said.
The members were probably driven to work hard because it was their first comeback in four years, as each member individually went on hiatuses for many reasons, the biggest being their mandatory military services. They showed they were happy to be back, and were cheerful and lively all throughout the conference.
Shinhwa Broadcast is a variety show featuring the six Shinhwa members, that will have the members shoot various programs including documentaries, music shows and even comedy shows under the concept that the members own their own ‘Shinhwa Broadcasting System’.
More than anything, Shinhwa emphasized that the program would show how unreserved the members are when they come together.
Jun Jin said, “We’ll be showing the relationships and energy we built up during the 14 years the six of us were together without a specific MC,” a quote that shows that Shinhwa now hopes to approach the public with honesty more than outside appearances.
Eric finished, “While we shoot the program with our members for the first time in four years, we hope this program will become one that will age with our viewers, like Countryside Diaries.”
