Introduction

Shinhwa (Korean: 신화; Japanese: シン・ファ), is a South Korean K-pop boy group under Shinwa Company. The group currently consists of 6 members: Eric, Lee Min Woo, Kim Dong Wan, Shin Hye Sung, Junjin and Andy. Shinhwa debuted on March 24th, 1998 under SM Entertainment with the album, 'Resolver', The group is known for the longest-running boy band in K-pop history.

In July 2003, the group's contract expired with SM Entertainment. However, in 2004, all members signed with Good Entertainment. After the group's contract expired with Good Entertainment in 2008, Shinhwa established their own company to manage their activities as a group in 2011.

After a four-year hiatus, due to the majority of the members completing their mandatory military service, the sextet established the Shinhwa Company to facilitate and maintain the group's career. The release of their tenth album on March 23rd, 2012, 'The Return', made them the FIRST Korean boy band to continue promotions after the mandatory military services. The same year, the group hosted their first exclusive variety program, "Shinhwa Broadcast".

On May 29th, 2015, Shinhwa won the trademark rights to their group name after 12 years. The members expressed their joy upon earning their name back after years of a legal battle. May 29th has been know to Shinhwa and their fans as Shindependence Day since 2015.

In commemoration of the group's 20th anniversary, Shinhwa released a re-recorded darker version of their song, "All Your Dreams" from the album 'Only One' in addition to filming a new music video. To signal the start of their 20th-anniversary project, 'All Your 2018', they performed for KBS Music Bank's twentieth anniversary.
