Shinhwa aka Backstreet Boys of Asia

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I wanted to write for long time something about one Korean “boy band” consisting of sixth grown men, that had their comeback early this year. Can you guess which one is it? Yes you are not wrong I am talking about Shinhwa.

Shinhwa (Hangul: 신화, Hanja: 神話) is a South Korean boy band that debuted on 24 March 1998 with six members: Eric Mun, Lee Min-woo, Kim Dong-wan, Shin Hye-sung, Jun Jin and Andy Lee. I did not hear about them till I watched Myung Wol the Spy, which starred Eric and after that I heard their new album and do you know what? The first moment I heard the first song “On the road” I thought why are they sounding so familiar and then I was struck by the lightning of the knowledge – they sounded like Backstreet Boys, they looked in the older photos also similar, their genre was also pop and the only difference I could find was their development in the years and the time of their debut. Backstreet Boys had their debut 1993.

Here are some photos and tell me what you think can we call Shinhwa the “Backstreet Boys” of Asia?

    ” Can we call ShinHwa the Backstreet Boys of Asia ? ” Honest answer, no, BSB are not even close to be funny as ShinHwa, Backstreet Boys are an average boy band ShinHwa are real entertainer. I was a fan of BSB when they came out, but I got tired of them, plus they are not really in the industry and their fan didn’t really wait for them ( only the real hardcore fan still hope to see them having a real comeback) in ShinHwa case their fan wait for them four years while the guy was in hiatus.
