Old Shinhwa Performance: Singing As Long As You Love Me

I’m not yet over (and will never be over) Shinhwa! I’m watching Shinhwa Broadcast religiously and I am always waiting for a new ep. But this post is not about Shinhwa Broadcast.

A friend of mine shared this performance with me. It was performed back in 2006 in Japan. They sang As Long As You Love Me, I Love You (Korean version) and Sun In Our Hearts (僕らの心には太陽がある).

The friend who suggested this to me was someone I convinced to like Shinhwa! She actually likes them a lot not because of their crazy antics but because of their ability in English! (Blanket!) But I’d have to agree with her.. that’s one of the thing I like about them too..

Anyhow… they sang my favorite Backstreet Boys song! I swoon when I heard this.. I actually think that is why my friend shared it with me. I know some of the members English is not perfect, but I don’t mind when I heard them sing. Was it nice? It was but it’s their cover of the song so I won’t be comparing it to BSB’s. I’m just happy to see them do this cover.

Another plus in Shin Hyesung sang I Love You. Another Korean classic that I like (originally sung by Position, but the first version is really a Japanese song).  I don’t know who the girl is though.. I can’t read Japanese 😦 But I like the performance. I was not really a fan of Shin Hyesung. I think he is just too shy on broadcasts. So I like Minwoo more :D. But I think he is letting go of himself now in Shinhwa Broadcasts. But his voice is one of the best voices I think in Kpop.

The last song that they sung in this is their Japanese song called Sun In Our Hearts.

I’ll never get tired of Shinhwa. If you want to know how crazy they are, watch Shinhwa Broadcasts! For English subs, you can go to orangebox88‘s blog 🙂

Top Three Shinhwa Songs

I don’t usually post about Shinhwa but that doesn’t mean that my addiction has stopped! I so I am continuing with the Top Three Shinhwa Songs.

These are not actually my top three favorites. My favorite is still Perfect Man. But these three were chosen by Shinhwa themselves when they were guests on Radio Star.

Top 3 – Eusha Eusha

I first heard this song during Andy and Solbi’s We Got Married Days. My fandom for Shinhwa did not start yet, so I knew only  a couple of songs (as I recall it was Snowy Night and Brand New). There was one segment on WGM when during the Shinhwa concert, Andy made a heart gesture for Solbi. The song was catchy for me because it had a sample of Doo Wah Diddy by Manfred Mann. I liked it since then. This is actually my second favorite among all the Shinhwa songs (next to Perfect Man).

Shinhwa chose this as their top 3 song because it’s a song for the summer. And if you were in Korea, summer is not complete without hearing this song. This song was from their first album, and though everyone knows about it, believe it or not, it was not popular when it was released.

 

Top 2 – Brand New

One of the first songs I heard from Shinhwa. But when I heard it, I was not familiar with them and I was too busy being a TVXQ/DBSK fan girl. But I remember that when I saw the MV, I liked Lee Min Woo immediately! I absolutely no idea why! I think that time I like him as “M” better than he was with Shinhwa. This song is not really in my top 3 Shinhwa songs, but it’s still a catchy one.

Shinhwa chose it as second because it’s the song where they won a Daesang (the most prestigious music award given every year in Korea) beating popular artists like Boa. This was also a track from their first album that was not produced by SM Entertainment. I’ve read, that Shinhwa was very nervous about the release of this album but Shinhwa Changjo proved that though they were not with SM anymore, they’d still stand by their favorite idols.

 

Top 1 – T.O.P (Twinkling of Paradise)

Actually, I remember this song having the sample of Swan Lake. It’s kind of an old song, from their second album. A very catchy song, but it’s not a favorite of mine. I actually think the acronyms are too childish! Haha.. but I stop myself from thinking that way because this is the song that put Shinhwa on the Kpop dictionary!

This was their top 1 choice because it’s the first song that placed first on the charts. This song skyrocketed Shinhwa’s popularity. Shinhwa even said themselves that if it was not for this song, Shinhwa would have disbanded already. But we thank heavens for LSM giving them this song (HOT wanted this too!) or there would not be any Shinhwa now.

So what’s your’s favorite Shinhwa song?

Shinhwa and Shinee on Shinhwa Broadcast

EDITED WITH PART 3 

If you’ve read my blog, you would know that I have been obsessing about Shinhwa since they made their comeback. I know a lot of you will say they are old idols.. but it’s exactly because of that that I like them 🙂 Not to mention the fact that they are so funny when they are in a show together.

So Shinhwa has this show on a Korean cable channel called Shinhwa Broadcast. And for the past two weeks Shinee has become their first idol guest! So what do you get when you put them together in a show? A very noisy, crazy, funny show!  And that is why I am sharing.

Click on the links ^____^ (only part 1 and part 2 for the moment, will edit this post when part 3 is up)

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

I did not do the subs for this, nor did I upload it on yt. That’s all been made by  Jeannious1128@yt (orangebox88@blogspot.com). Big big thanks to her for subbing all Shinhwa broadcast and feeding my Shinhwa addiction!

Enjoy!!!

Hiatus and Shinhwa Obsessions

I went on a long vacation! But it does not mean I have been missing things about Asian stuff!

For the month I didn’t make a post, I have been obsessing watching past and present videos of SHINHWA!!!

Shin who?? If you’ve just become a Kpop fan for about a year or two, you probably would not recognize. They were one of whom you would call the original Kpop idols— long before DBSK, Big Bang and Super Junior!

They haven’t been around for 4 years or so but they’ve just came back with a new single. And I was watching their videos the whole time even while I was on vacation! Oh blame it on these guys craziness!! I swear they always make me laugh every time they are on variety shows. I think they are called Korea’s original variety idols!

But enough said, I am back from my vacation and will be posting more (when I can, because it’s the start of school again in Thailand). And thus, I leave you with my favorite Shinhwa song… Perfect Man.

VENUS – SHINHWA

OMG OMG OMG!!!! Their back!

Scream!!!! Minwoo!! Junjin!! Eric!! Dongwan!! Andy!! Hyesung!!! SHINHWA!!!

Shinhwa‘s back with a new song called Venus!

Pardon all the exclamation marks on the top page.. but I can’t believe my excitement when I saw their video! Shinhwa’s back!! yay!!

For those who do not know who they are, they were an idol group long before DBSK, Super Junior, Beast, Big Bang were around. And they’ve been doing their stuff for more than 10 years now and they haven’t disbanded.. To date, they are the longest running Kpop group!

I didn’t really know about Shinhwa back then but I fell in love with them after watching Andy and Solbi on We Got Married. They were a guest and I got curious and I started to watch them on variety shows and listen to their older songs. I find thei songs good and upbeat and their antics on shows funny. And the rest is history. The only problem was, some of them went into military service, thus I haven’t seen some of them on shows as one whole band.

But now, their all done with military service! Yay! And they are back with a new album! Yay! I’m not kidding when I say I have been waiting for this come back! Now have them as guests on variety shows!! All of them!! please!

Anyway, thoughts on the video: My first reaction was like Minwoo!!! Junjin!!! I could not concentrate on the song, but was instead looking at each member. I had to play it again .. ha! Anyway, this song is not the same usual Shinhwa track, yes, it’s a dance track but they pretty much decided to take on the Western style of song. Do I like it? Yes of course. This proves that they’re talented and they can fit to the new style of idol Kpop songs. Though too much autotune.. I would prefer to hear their voices.The dance.. they can still strut their stuff! lol… They can still do their moves..  Minwoo.. Junjin.. you still are one of the best dancers to me!

Many new Kpop fans may not know them, but for someone who has been listening to Kpop for a long time will be happy with this comeback! I know I am! GO SHINHWA!!!!
