Hey every one @PrettieeEmm here to give you a bit of an update on Shinhwa's comeback

First A little info on Shinhwa for those who may not know them.
Eric Mun, Lee Min Woo, Kim Dong Wan, Shin Hye Sung, Jun Jin and Andy Lee, debuted as Shinhwa on 24th March 1998 under SM Entertainment, with the single, ‘Resolver
Shinhwa, climbed up the ladder of success triumphantly; by 2002 was recorded as the longest running Korean Pop boy group, with the release of its sixth album, ‘Wedding’, of which the title track was ‘Your Wedding’. Soon they came to see the end of their contract with the SM Entertainment, which they did not want to renew, and signed a contract with Good Entertainment.
Until 2004, the new contract did not begin. Therefore, the members initiated their solo activities. Returning as a group under Good Entertainment, with the album ‘Brand New’, the group showed off a total different face, topping up charts.
In 2007, the group was on hiatus again expanding their solo activities. Since 2008 members had to go through their mandatory military enlistment.
2011 was another year of history for both the group and the K-Pop industry. Shinhwa became the first group to own its own company with the establishment of Shinhwa Company, a joint venture agency where Eric and Min Woo were Co-CEOs, and the rest of the members are shareholders.
The longest living idols will be having their 13th comeback by the end of this year. not to mention the fact that they had their 18th Anniversary (on my bday btw)
This is probably one of the most awaited comebacks for the older generation of fans 🙋🏻
On Sept. 19th Dongwan was a special DJ at KBS Cool FM and said "Shinhwa's comeback is planned for November."
That's a month delay from the previous known October comeback.
That means having to wait a whole month for greatness. But Im sure it will be worth it.
On the reason for the delay, Dongwan said, "We're are putting in alot of effort in song selection. We want to show a different color to the songs we've previously shown, and also want to work with great composers within Korea so there has been a bit of a delay"
He also added "Lee Minwoo's composition will be included in the new album as well. We didn't think it's right to rush each other so we're doing it at a comfortable pace."
At least they're gonna avoid the blood bath in October
Although we will have to wait an extra month there is a supply of spoilers
Since August 24, Shinhwa's Minwoo has been giving fans a series of spoilers for their upcoming 13th album
first spoiler Minwoo posted on his Instagram account, the company and staff have clearly posted a notice forbidding any filming or photography on what seems to be their MV set. In fact, Minwoo's finger points exactly toward the bullet point in the notice which reads, "Any personal blog or SNS posts which can become spoilers are strictly forbidden."
Lee Minwoo even shared an Instagram post about working on their new song.
In order to repay the fans for their support and to show their dignified status of ‘longevity idols’, Shinhwa is hard at work preparing for their comeback.

Just a few of my favorite Shinhwa's songs

Anyone else looking forward to this comeback?

And what are some of your favorite Shinhwa songs?

Everyone come and get some goods!” B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk, the couch potato, shared a photo of himself via Instagram on October 10. Himchan also shared a photo, tweeting “Because you sent support mentions to stay strong since the morning, we were able to wrap today’s performance with no major issues! With that, a selca. Thanks for the hard work!” Miss A’s Suzy continued to update fans on her birthday festivities, tweeting the above photo on October 11 with the message, “My mother decorated. Umma jjang jjang girl.” She also tweeted the above photo, along with the cute exchange she had with her mom, writing “’Suzy, the-the-there, there, wear that and sit there.’ Yes, mom..” SHINee’s Jonghyun tweeted the above photo on October 10, writing “It’s small, but I’m eating this to recharge.

I liked ‘The Reason I Wait’ the best. I liked ‘Look Like Me.’ ‘Happy Together’ was good too. ‘Sad Monologue’ was so sad... So many hit songs I can’t pick just one.” Kim Heechul still had Lim Chang Jung on the mind, later posting another photo on Instagram, completely unrelated to the caption, on October 10, writing “After eating with Lim Chang Jung hyung, coming home, washing up and thinking in bed, he’s a really cute hyung. He’s happy because he’s busier than today’s idols, seeing him talk excitedly about his fans, he’s a really awesome person. After time passes, will I have hubaes I can talk excitedly to? I’m envious of Chang Jung hyung. That he has a sensible genius hubae like me.. Because I don’t have a photo with Chang Jung hyung, who left for Music Bank, I’m posting a photo of TaeTiSeo instead.”
PSA What does your blood type mean?
For those who haven’t noticed, Koreans tend to stereotype individual personalities through blood types. Of course, none of these are scientifically proven so they shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s the same as trying to predict the future through astrological signs or tarot readings—it’s all just for fun. But you’ll be surprised with how accurate some of these characteristics can be. Here’s a basic breakdown of how Koreans view each blood type along with some celebrities who belong under each category. BLOOD TYPE A  People with type A blood are known to be more conservative and introverted than the others, often finding difficulty in expressing emotions or trusting others. They’re extremely patient, considerate, and reserved, but also highly creative and perfectionists, often giving people the impression as being stubborn, tense, and uptight. Men with type A blood are said to be the friendly natured ones with good personalities. They’re very punctual, always expecting the best results in everything they do, but are also very sensitive and willing to give up everything they have for those they love. Due to their sensitive natures, they’re very fragile-hearted and often get hurt easily. The women, however, tend to be very greedy and have a hard time finding satisfaction easily. They’re strong prides often lead them to act emotionless. However, they’re very loyal and caring, which often results to extreme jealousy or emotional damage upon feeling betrayed. They prefer living according to schedule, are intimidated by spontaneity, and feel distress in sudden environmental changes.  ***Best match: Type O  BLOOD TYPE B  People with type B blood are said to be the passionate, wild, and creative ones of the four. They’re independent, but also very passionate about the people and things they love. They tend to think outside the box and live very liberal lifestyles rather than limiting themselves to one environment. However, they can also get impatient and give up easily, often coming off as being lazy, self-centered, shallow, and irresponsible. Men with type B blood have a negative reputation for their strong prides and self-centered personalities. They hate those who underestimate their abilities or fail to give them the attention they want. However, they’re very smart and popular due to their sense of humor, fall in love easily but lose interest just as fast, and tend to act before they think. They’re good liars, and often get annoyed when asked to do something.  The women, not much different from the men, hate being controlled by rules and tend to speak their minds, regardless of what the other person might feel, but can also get affected by their own emotions easily, resulting in constant mood swings. They tend to get bored and lose interest quickly, making spontaneity a vital factor in their everyday lives—this also makes it difficult to maintain long-term relationships. They hate attachment or being confined to one area, and while they’re not the easiest to anger, they can get extremely stoic and have difficulty finding peace. ***Best match: Type AB BLOOD TYPE O  People with type O blood are outgoing, energetic, optimistic, and known to be natural leaders. They like speaking their minds while maintaining a friendly attitude, and possess high self-confidence which leads them to be highly ambitious and obsessed with success. They convince themselves that they’re winners and hate losing. They also tend to be dramatic, arrogant, insensitive, and ruthless, but are known to have the best personalities out of the four blood types. They often tend to tire themselves out due to their need to take care of everyone around them. Men with blood type O are extremely sensitive, emotional, and tend to trust easily. They’re very aware and critical of their surroundings and enjoy participating in group activities, which emphasizes the active and leadership skills they posses. They often hide their feelings and find it difficult to express them due to fear of rejection.  The women, however, are very active and nice, but also extremely bold and unexpected. They lose control of their stress easily and end up getting hurt or experience loneliness more often than others. However, they’re extremely caring and patient and usually treat others’ problems as if they were their own. They might look strong on the outside, but they’re very weak and fragile and prefer being in a small group rather than big ones. ***Best match : Type A BLOOD TYPE AB  People with blood type AB are known to be either the genius or the psycho ones of the group. While they might look active on the outside, they can be very sensitive and shy, but also extremely loud and strong. They’re rational thinkers with strong concentration skills and are more controlled by their heads rather than their hearts. They can also be shy and aloof, indecisive, and sometimes distance themselves from others, leading some people to think of them as two-faced, untrustworthy, and unpredictable. Men with type AB blood can often come across as cold and distant on first meetings. However, they’re more caring than most people and are always the first ones to forgive. They give up on things easily, often jumping around from one activity to the next, and adjust to new environments extremely quickly. Because they’re extremely shy people, they tend to hide their feelings and often come across as emotionally detached. People usually don’t associate them with trustworthy characteristics at first, but find that they’re very honest and romantic with those they’re most comfortable with. Women with type AB blood are often two-faced—they’re very curious about other peoples’ businesses, but hate disclosing any of their own and usually like being left alone. They can be extremely caring and considerate at times, but also very selfish, impatient, and suspicious of other people. They’re more free and unaffected by their surroundings than reserved, and while they might not look like it, they’re extremely vulnerable to their feelings. ***Best match: Type AB  What's your blood type?

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY
*sigh* (‾︶‾) Well something wonderful happened this week.....my Shinhwa bias had a comeback..... AND I'M OBSESSED♥ So let's get right into it. SHIN HYE SUNG__ ROCO DRAMA THIS SONG IS SOOOO GOOD. I love the smooth feel of this....his voice *covers my face* it just hits all the right places in my ears. The choreography is on point. He's doing that whole sensual type sexy that isn't over the top but it's just enough to where you're like Damn.... His new mini album, delight, has been on repeat this week in my house. Its so good. He's been promoting the slow jam 끝이야 (End) as well *sigh*(I added it on the 2nd slide). But definitely check out the third track, 예뻐 (added on the 3rd slide). The song is catchy, smooth and sweet with a playful bounce to it. YOON JONG SHIN with TABLO__THE FIRST THIS IS SO DOPE. The song has this synthesized funk sound....it's so frickin cool. And the MV is just.....gosh, I'm speechless. YOU WANNA BE A COOL KID? PUT YOUR EYES ON THIS. BUMKEY FT TABLO__BETTER MAN The second comeback this week to make me lose my sh*t was BUMKEY. I LOVE HIM. And his voice is as smooth as ever ♡ and my uncle Tablo with the feature? YES PLEASE. He released the tracklist as well. TWELVE NEW TRACKS....I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE ALBUM TO DROP. PRETTY BROWN FT HANHAE__NO ONE LIKE HIM I lurve my slow jams and this is another to add to the list. Honey in the vocals and Hanhae....what's not to like? CRUCIAL STAR__THE BENCH No secret I have a crush on Crucial Star.....I love his coffee shop style. His voice is comforting and the music he puts out is so chill. Ill definitely be looking for a translation of the lyrics. He's officially parting ways with Grandline Entertainment to pursue music as an independent artist and I, personally, am very hopeful and wish him all the best in the future. I can't wait to see what he comes out with♡ JINSIL of MAD SOUL CHILD x MC MONG__AFTEREFFECT This is an amazing collaboration....from the instrumental to the lyrics....and their chemistry really shines thru. They tell a story....I dig that. They have very different styles and approaches to things but I really love the way this came together. t YOON MIRAE FT PUNCH__ 잘 지내고 있니 And no, the feature is not Punch from 1Punch lol. Punch is the female vocalist. The song itself reminds me if something that might be in an OST.....but I dig the vibe. The guitars tho! I got the chorus stuck in my head putting this together. And MIRAE is the queen. MINO & TAEHYUN (WINNER)__PRICKED Mino's vocals in the beginning gave me chills. Definitely anticipating this upcoming album. YG is the biggest troll alive.....but homie, don't play with us. Please. BAECHIGI FT YEO EUN OF MELODY DAY__WALKAK Baechigi and their difference in flows are amazingly compatible and give a song such dimension. They're just crazy talented. And choosing Yeo Eun for the hook was perfect....her vocals are haunting. JOOYOUNG__CAN YOU HEAR ME? (REMEMBER OST PT 2) @danidee JOOYOUNG ENLISTED(;´ຶДຶ `) WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL MEEE?? I'm not usually big on OSTs because I don't usually watch dramas......but I dig anything Jooyoung related sooo....this is a yes. HOTSHOT__TAKE A SHOT (NEW CHOREOGRAPHY VERSION) I realize this song is old but my babies released this a day ago and OMG I have proud mama stats right now. Miss these boys....hopefully they'll have a comeback soon. MONSTA X__AMEN LIVE ON M Countdown I'm loving this choreography ♥ uuuuggh WONHO.....Boy is KILLING me. But I don't mind it at all. What I did mind is the I.M-lessness of this performance ∪ˍ∪ but I'm sending him healing vibes....hopefully he'll be 100% soon. JOONIL JUNG FT BEWHY__PLASTIC I really wanted to talk about this release last.....the first time I listened to it, I got to Bewhy's verse and couldn't finish listening to the song. The somber melancholy feel this song puts out paired with Joonil's pleading vocals....it just rings in all the empty spaces in your soul. It's so sad but so beautiful at the same time.... Mama's gonna get serious on y'all for a minute.....I had something....bad happen in my family this week that made me think a lot. It made me think about all of you....yeah, you....the pretty one with tired eyes reading this. YOU. My youngest cousin attempted suicide a couple days ago....thankfully, she's gonna be okay. The thing that made me think of Vingle is....she reached out on Instagram for help from her followers and friends because she felt she couldn't talk to family about the things she was feeling. I love how a lot of you feel comfortable reaching out to your Vingle Kpop family when you're feeling sad or frustrated or lost or hopeless. We can lean on each other here and support one another. Its a beautiful thing. If there are any of you wallflowers out there going thru tough times and are reading this....don't be afraid to reach out to the family here....we're here for you. We'll cheer you up....or just listen to you vent if that's what you need. What I'm trying to say is.... YOU'RE NOT ALONE. I'm gonna end it here, children. ♥
K-Pop Challenge: My 'All About Desire' Playlist
So this week, @MattK95 challenged me to make a playlist based on the word 'desire'. This probably could have been open to anything - like 'desiring' to get back with someone or 'desiring' to boom shaka laka (wow fantastic baby), but I focused on the idea of lust and initial attraction. The major theme going on in most of these songs is there's a really attractive stranger that just walked into the room, and they've definitely caught your attention. So without further ado, MY PLAYLIST!! 1. "Coach Me" - Hyorin of Sistar, San-E, and Jooheon of NO.MERCY: This song is one of those racy dim the lights kind of jams, but I love it anyway. It's about desiring to take things to, uh, the next level. Anyway. 2. "Take Out" - Untouchable feat. Mayson The Soul: The lyrics to this song pretty much read like a really long pick-up line. The chorus is totally jazzy too. (Have you guys heard of Untouchable? Their songs are so awesome! They're on Secret and B.A.P's label, TS Entertainment.) 3. "Taxi" - M (aka Minwoo of Shinhwa): Every good K-Pop fan has a favorite member of Shinhwa and Lee Minwoo is definitely mine. He's Rain level swaggy. His latest solo single "Taxi" is about how he still can't stop thinking about the one who got away - the woman he met in a taxi. This music video is hilarious. I love how his back-up dancers are all dressed up like SNSD in their Mr. Taxi MV, and I especially love how my favorite Korean ex-pat Sam Hammington plays a rapping taxi driver! 4. "Thinking About You" - Loco feat. Jay Park: I love this song so much. The music video is a little ridiculous in a very AOMG way, but I think Loco is an amazing rapper. He was actually the first winner of Show Me The Money, the rapper equivalent of KPop Star that Bobby from IKON recently won the third season of. 5. "Would You?" - Swings feat. Seo In Guk: In this video, the rapper, Moon Swings, desires a very apathetic NS Yoon G. In real life, my pet dachshund desires a tall, dark, and handsome Seo In Guk. (No, seriously. Whenever he's on television, she stops what she's doing to watch. Although I can't say I'd blame her.) 6. "Attraction" - Bumkey of Troy feat. Dynamic Duo: What is one of my playlist challenges without a Dynamic Duo song? I love this song so much, and both the song and the video definitely fit the 'desire' theme. I love that the main girl in this video is Ellin from Crayon Pop. She looks all sorts of grown up when she's not wearing her "Bar Bar Bar" helmet! 7. "만나" - Primary feat. Zion.T: This song is all about wanting to meet the sexy lady who walked into the room. I'm not really sure what the English title is of this though. Maybe "Let's Meet" or "Meeting". Something along those lines. Either way, I love everything about this song. 8. "Hole In Your Face" - Phantom: This song is about Sanchez of Phantom wanting a woman so badly that all he can do is stare at her picture. And he stares at the picture so hard that he wonders how he hasn't burned a hole through her face. If this logic worked, T.O.P from Big Bang probably wouldn't have a face because 90% of my friends stare at it on their cellphone backgrounds all of the time. 9. "Want U" - Junggigo feat. Beenzino: 너를 원해 or 'no-reul won-hae' is how you express that you want someone in Korean. This song's title is literally 너를 원해, so it was the first song I could think of when I found out this week's theme was 'desire'. He's straight-forward, that Junggigo. I like his style.
