[Korean] Shinhwa - Group

And So The Countdown Begins...

Singer Kim Dongwan revealed that work has already started on Shinhwa's comeback album in 2012.

During the recording for the upcoming 6 March episode of SBS music program "Kim Jung Eun's Chocolate", Kim Dongwan talked about Shinhwa's plans for their comeback in 2012.

"Eric and Minwoo are already working on the concept of the album. We will try our best to live up to the title of the longest-running idol group."

For this episode, Kim Dongwan, together with After School's Kahi, performed the duet "Man and Woman", originally by Park Sun Joo and Kim Bum Soo. The pair, usually known for their powerful charm, moved the audience with their rendition of this sweet ballad.

Kahi also gave a great performance of Shinhwa's "Wild Eyes", which greatly impressed Kim Dongwan. Kim Dongwan later revealed, "I went to the same church as Kahi when I was in high school, but I only realized it after her debut."

Kim Dongwan also performed Kim Min Jong's "Under The Sky", wowing the audience with his flawless rendition of the song.

Meanwhile, Kim Dongwan is preparing to return to acting.

I have faith in Minwoo & Eric's composing skill but I hope they follow their instinct instead of the trend.

Everything is short on ZE:A's Dongjun.

His friend Defconn also tweeted, “Our Space Big Star Hee-nim! It’s his sixth anniversary today since he’s debuted!! Injured on such a joyful day T_T  Please RT and hope that he gets better quickly!

A representative of SM Entertainment spoke with Star News on the morning of the 7th and revealed, “Heechul’s face was scratched by an LED board a fan threw to him as a present. Immediately upon his arrival in Korea, he was taken to a hospital in Seoul.  Thankfully, his examination results proved that it wasn’t a serious injury.”

Super Junior involved in another fan-related car accident in Shanghai

The Korean media is reporting on March 7th that the members of Super Junior were involved in a minor car accident, which resulted from fans chasing their van in Shanghai.

Star News spoke with a representative of the industry, who revealed, “On March 6th, Super Junior’s Heechul, Leeteuk, Shindong, Yesung, and others were in the car when they got into a rear-end collision in Shanghai.”

The accident was reported to have occurred while the boys were on their way to the airport after successfully completing their “Super Show 3” concert. Dozens of fans in cars began chasing after Super Junior’s van, which resulted in the collision. The Super Junior-M members were not involved in the accident, as they remained behind to continue their Chinese promotions.

Luckily, the members and fans were not injured. However, even though Super Junior was able to return to Korea safely, the accident remains as a shock to both the members and fans, since Super Junior suffered a similar accident in Singapore on January 29th.
