South Korea’s longest-running K-pop act Shinhwa released their 20th anniversary special album Heart on August 28.
The legendary act’s much-anticipated album includes lead dance song Kiss Me Like That, along with five other tracks that embraces various genres.
During a press conference held in Seoul, Shinhwa’s leader Eric Mun explained that the meaning of the album comes from their “heartfelt gratitude to fans” and their continued commitment to perform as Shinhwa on and off stage.
Following the release of their album, the sextet will put on a monumental 20th anniversary concert titled Heart at Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul on October 6 and October 7.
The six-piece group, consisting of Lee Min-woo, Jun Jin, Andy Lee, Kim Dong-wan, Shin Hye-sung and Eric Mun, is an established name in Korea and across Asia. They rose to prominence in the early 2000s with a series of hit songs, such as Wild Eyes, Perfect Man, T.O.P and Hey, Come On!.
Shinhwa is one of the first K-pop bands formed by massive K-pop juggernaut SM Entertainment, home to popular acts like EXO, Red Velvet and Girls’ Generation. They continued to live up to their name by releasing music and holding concerts under their own label, Shinhwa Company.
