Shin Hyesung: Shinhwa will release the 10th album in 4-5 years’ time

Singer Shin Hyesung has expressed that Shinhwa will be releasing their 10th album in 4-5 years’ time in an interview with the April issue of fashion magazine Singles. “Although I can’t confirm that it will be another 4 years, but we will release the album when all the members have finished with their military service in 4-5 years’ time.”

“To me Shinhwa is like my home, it feels like it’s my hometown. Although we’re all busy with our solo activities now, and some are serving their military service, but when we do get together, it feels even more like being back home.”

He added somewhat regretfully, “Although Shinhwa as a group has released many albums and has been active for a long time, but what people can remember most is our pop dance choreography or things such as the Wild Eyes chair dance. On the other hand, we haven’t had a hit song that is infectious and influential throughout the country.”

Born in 1979, Shin Hyesung is 31 (Korean age) this year, and it has been 11 years since Shinhwa made their debut in 1998. Now he is one of the few highly popular singers with idol beginnings. He has been taking care of the high notes in Shinhwa’s songs, and has earned himself a reputation of being a credible singer with strong vocals since his debut.

He also formed the project group S in 2003 with Kangta and Lee Ji Hoon, and went on to release his first solo album in 2005. He has just released Side 2 of his 3rd album on Feb 16 this year, and it’s a milestone album that marks the musical growth of Shin Hyesung in these 10 years.

On the other hand, according to the album sales charts, Shin Hyesung’s “Side 2: Keep Leaves” has taken the #1 spot with 26,149 copies for the month of February. The ballad “Why Did You Call”, featuring Shin Hyesung’s melancholic vocals has also earned good reviews.
