Shinhwa is back- or rather- they’re coming back! For a while, the current oldest idol group has been teasing their plans for the release of their 13th studio album. Well Shinhwa fans, the time has come! The group unveiled their comeback project dates for the rest of the year.
Shinhwa Company released the following statement regarding the imminent comeback:
“On November 29, we will be releasing the 13th album, Part 1, as the start of Shinhwa’s comeback project. The members worked hard to enclose all of their thankful hearts into this album, for the fans who have waited for them.”
The releases start on October 22nd, with a track titled “She said” and project plans are revealed to continue until January next year. The 13th album will be officially released on November 29th but will only contain part one of the tracks. Part 2 will be released on January 3rd, next year. However, between parts 1 and 2 being released, Shinhwa will hold two concerts on December 17th and 18th at the Ilsan Kintex Center.
But that was not all provided in the teaser image! Shinhwa also included a little message for the fans regarding their feelings as being the longest running Kpop idol group:
“There’s nothing in this world that hasn’t changed. In the past 19 years, everything has also changed for us. However, there’s one thing that never changes. Shinhwa…six. Since the beginning and until now we have always been six. And the six members have always been here. Never leaving your side, constant as ever.”
Shinhwa debuted back in 1998 (way before I even knew Kpop existed!), and have had multiple successful albums since. They are also the longest active group to have had the same line-up since debut, a fact they happily reminded fans of in their message.
So, who’s ready to see what they’ve come up with next? Let us know about your expectations and how long you’ve been a fan, in the comments! And stay tuned to Officially Kmusic Now, as we keep you updated on Shinhwa’s comeback project!
