Old Shinhwa Performance: Singing As Long As You Love Me

I’m not yet over (and will never be over) Shinhwa! I’m watching Shinhwa Broadcast religiously and I am always waiting for a new ep. But this post is not about Shinhwa Broadcast.

A friend of mine shared this performance with me. It was performed back in 2006 in Japan. They sang As Long As You Love Me, I Love You (Korean version) and Sun In Our Hearts (僕らの心には太陽がある).

The friend who suggested this to me was someone I convinced to like Shinhwa! She actually likes them a lot not because of their crazy antics but because of their ability in English! (Blanket!) But I’d have to agree with her.. that’s one of the thing I like about them too..

Anyhow… they sang my favorite Backstreet Boys song! I swoon when I heard this.. I actually think that is why my friend shared it with me. I know some of the members English is not perfect, but I don’t mind when I heard them sing. Was it nice? It was but it’s their cover of the song so I won’t be comparing it to BSB’s. I’m just happy to see them do this cover.

Another plus in Shin Hyesung sang I Love You. Another Korean classic that I like (originally sung by Position, but the first version is really a Japanese song).  I don’t know who the girl is though.. I can’t read Japanese 😦 But I like the performance. I was not really a fan of Shin Hyesung. I think he is just too shy on broadcasts. So I like Minwoo more :D. But I think he is letting go of himself now in Shinhwa Broadcasts. But his voice is one of the best voices I think in Kpop.

The last song that they sung in this is their Japanese song called Sun In Our Hearts.

I’ll never get tired of Shinhwa. If you want to know how crazy they are, watch Shinhwa Broadcasts! For English subs, you can go to orangebox88‘s blog 🙂

Top Three Shinhwa Songs

I don’t usually post about Shinhwa but that doesn’t mean that my addiction has stopped! I so I am continuing with the Top Three Shinhwa Songs.

These are not actually my top three favorites. My favorite is still Perfect Man. But these three were chosen by Shinhwa themselves when they were guests on Radio Star.

Top 3 – Eusha Eusha

I first heard this song during Andy and Solbi’s We Got Married Days. My fandom for Shinhwa did not start yet, so I knew only  a couple of songs (as I recall it was Snowy Night and Brand New). There was one segment on WGM when during the Shinhwa concert, Andy made a heart gesture for Solbi. The song was catchy for me because it had a sample of Doo Wah Diddy by Manfred Mann. I liked it since then. This is actually my second favorite among all the Shinhwa songs (next to Perfect Man).

Shinhwa chose this as their top 3 song because it’s a song for the summer. And if you were in Korea, summer is not complete without hearing this song. This song was from their first album, and though everyone knows about it, believe it or not, it was not popular when it was released.

 

Top 2 – Brand New

One of the first songs I heard from Shinhwa. But when I heard it, I was not familiar with them and I was too busy being a TVXQ/DBSK fan girl. But I remember that when I saw the MV, I liked Lee Min Woo immediately! I absolutely no idea why! I think that time I like him as “M” better than he was with Shinhwa. This song is not really in my top 3 Shinhwa songs, but it’s still a catchy one.

Shinhwa chose it as second because it’s the song where they won a Daesang (the most prestigious music award given every year in Korea) beating popular artists like Boa. This was also a track from their first album that was not produced by SM Entertainment. I’ve read, that Shinhwa was very nervous about the release of this album but Shinhwa Changjo proved that though they were not with SM anymore, they’d still stand by their favorite idols.

 

Top 1 – T.O.P (Twinkling of Paradise)

Actually, I remember this song having the sample of Swan Lake. It’s kind of an old song, from their second album. A very catchy song, but it’s not a favorite of mine. I actually think the acronyms are too childish! Haha.. but I stop myself from thinking that way because this is the song that put Shinhwa on the Kpop dictionary!

This was their top 1 choice because it’s the first song that placed first on the charts. This song skyrocketed Shinhwa’s popularity. Shinhwa even said themselves that if it was not for this song, Shinhwa would have disbanded already. But we thank heavens for LSM giving them this song (HOT wanted this too!) or there would not be any Shinhwa now.

So what’s your’s favorite Shinhwa song?

Shinhwa and Shinee on Shinhwa Broadcast

EDITED WITH PART 3 

If you’ve read my blog, you would know that I have been obsessing about Shinhwa since they made their comeback. I know a lot of you will say they are old idols.. but it’s exactly because of that that I like them 🙂 Not to mention the fact that they are so funny when they are in a show together.

So Shinhwa has this show on a Korean cable channel called Shinhwa Broadcast. And for the past two weeks Shinee has become their first idol guest! So what do you get when you put them together in a show? A very noisy, crazy, funny show!  And that is why I am sharing.

Click on the links ^____^ (only part 1 and part 2 for the moment, will edit this post when part 3 is up)

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

I did not do the subs for this, nor did I upload it on yt. That’s all been made by  Jeannious1128@yt (orangebox88@blogspot.com). Big big thanks to her for subbing all Shinhwa broadcast and feeding my Shinhwa addiction!

Enjoy!!!

Hiatus and Shinhwa Obsessions

I went on a long vacation! But it does not mean I have been missing things about Asian stuff!

For the month I didn’t make a post, I have been obsessing watching past and present videos of SHINHWA!!!

Shin who?? If you’ve just become a Kpop fan for about a year or two, you probably would not recognize. They were one of whom you would call the original Kpop idols— long before DBSK, Big Bang and Super Junior!

They haven’t been around for 4 years or so but they’ve just came back with a new single. And I was watching their videos the whole time even while I was on vacation! Oh blame it on these guys craziness!! I swear they always make me laugh every time they are on variety shows. I think they are called Korea’s original variety idols!

But enough said, I am back from my vacation and will be posting more (when I can, because it’s the start of school again in Thailand). And thus, I leave you with my favorite Shinhwa song… Perfect Man.

Namjok kkeurseom – Hachi & TJ

If you watched We Got Married, I’m sure you’re familiar with the ALSHIN couple (Alex of Clazziquai and the very pretty actress Shin Ae). I’m not sure what episode it was but there was an episode where Alex was playing a song ang he kept on repeating the line “bbobbohago shipso” or i want to kiss you. The song that was playing is called Namjok kkeurseom (Southend Island) by Hachi and TJ. The song has a Hawaiian reggae feel to it, and I’m a sucker of hawaiian music (that was my addiction before the asian bug bit me). I found some videos on youtube one is an MV made for the AlShin couple and another one for the AnSol couple. Also found a video where Alex sung his version of the song in a show called Love Letter (i just love his voice).
