Hey guys! It's time for some oldies! With all the new groups debuting, let's kick it old school!
Shinhwa is a six member group that debuted on March 24, 1998 under SM. In 2003, the group switched to Good Entertainment because their contract expired. While under Good, each of the members pursued solo careers. In 2011, the boys created Shinhwa Entertainment to perform together. Their debut song was Hae Gyeol Sa (Resolver). Ok, so it's just vocals, but slay! I have fallen in love with them.

These boys have worked so hard, and have earned so many achievements. In 2002, Shinhwa released their sixth album, becoming the longest running Kpop group. In 2005, their label at the time set out to create a new Shinhwa Group, or a new legend group, through a reality tv show. About 2,000 people applied, and it was narrowed down to the 12 finalists. The boys picked the new six member group, which became known as Battle, as well as two female solo artists. These groups went into training immediately, then debuted with Shinhwa's then-label, Good Entertainment.
