The members of Shinhwa recently met up to discuss a new album to be released next year, and fans are expecting an announcement soon regarding the album. On April 26th, an official representing Shinhwa said, "Shinhwa are planning to release an album after all of the members have been discharged from the military."
In addition, the representative said that the Shinhwa members are planning to hold a concert after releasing their album next year in order to keep their promise to fans.
Last year, Kim Dongwan announced on a broadcast, "Shinhwa is planning to make a comeback in 2012. Eric and Lee Minwoo will showcase their producing skills before summer 2012."
Currently, Kim Dongwan and Eric have finished their military duties while Lee Minwoo and Junjin will be discharged from Public Service duties in January 2012. Andy is currently serving active duty and will be discharged in the coming October. Member Shin Hyesung will release a solo album in June.
Shinhwa's representative also stated that because there is still quite a bit of time, many details of the comeback have not been finalized. However, it is a fact that the Shinhwa members met a while back to discuss the comeback and new album.
The release of this new album will mark Shinhwa's comeback after four years of absence. Shinhwa last released their 4th album in September of 2008. Since their debut in 1998, Shinhwa has never changed members nor changed their group name. Shinhwa are truly legends of Kpop, as they are the longest lasting Kpop group of all time and are highly regarded for their perseverance.
