Andy: When all six of us are together it is seriously noisy and chaotic.. Sort of like the feeling of meeting the family members after being apart for a long time..
Jinnie hyung who had just returned from filming in the country hadn't slept yet, but being with the Shinhwa members of course~
he forgot about his tiredness and returned to his cheery self. Eric hyung kept being called 'CEO' and was affectionately teased by us,
but everyone was so happy his drama is doing so well and congratulated him. And, the hyungs as usual...
imitated the Nonstop lines that are so familiar to me, and still got them wrong. Although they're only one or two years older hyungs,
everytime they do that, I feel as if I am they're real little brother..(Posted Image
Eric: I monitor the activities of the other Shinhwa members in order to catch funny phrases and actions.
It's because the other group members can take one such funny phrase and make fun of me for more than a month.
Andy: The members are very playful. Aside from Dongwan hyung, the rest of the members don't seriously give advice on my acting.
Instead, if they find something lacking they tease with it. Every time they see me the first thing they say is
"Are you Hye Joo?" (a line from andy’s drama ‘lovers in Prague’) We met up recently in a place where
there was a lot of people and they shouted loudly "Are you Hye Joo?" It was so embarassing.
Minwoo: Because we were so comfortable with each other, 2-3 of us usually took showers at a time.
Once, Andy came in while I was taking a shower and sprayed ketchup over my head as a joke.
I thought my head was bleeding and was so shocked. I almost fainted!
Eric: Whether it's pushing against people in moving cars, or throwing really hot water on other member's butts
when we are bathing are some of the funny things we all do to one another, not just me.
Japanese reporter: I was surprised of the Shinhwa I saw. Their relationship is extremely good,
and they are like children at heart; noisy and mischievous.
Lee Ji Hoon (singer/actor): I envy them because they're always together.
They are so funny and close to each other. It seems so good.
GoodEMG: Their relationship is like friends who are so close that they are like family.
Even if they had not seen each other for a long time, they can immediately start chatting just like old friends.(Posted Image
Dongwan: During these years, I've had some of the toughest times..
And we've shared all the important times with all 6 members together..
We've had fun and made each other laugh..
Also when we've had serious days, we've drunk together..
Junjin: Everytime I went through hard times I would think a lot about the other members.
Hyesung: In the old days, when Jin was hurt, then I could feel it..
When one of us is hurt, or something bad happens to one of us..
Then we would all feel sad., We'd all be down.
But we all knew that it would heal and that we'd be back to work soon..
Junjin: I truly want to say this to Hyesung hyung. We are Shinhwa till we die so I want to be there for him
when he needs me and he would definitely be there for me when I need him…
Minwoo: Just staying with each other without saying a word, we could feel each other..
Junjin: I think of the other members first, and even now I still think of them when I am hurting. Or when I'm confused.
Sometimes I’m really worried that I would wake up and find myself alone.
That this situation was really just a lie... But our members are always there for each other..
even though you may not be able to see it, I could feel the love that all our members really have for each other..
Hyesung: when I was alone I wan't just one-sixth of a group..
I wasn't just one of six, nor one of ten, nor one of 12, nor one of 20...
Dongwan: to me, Shinhwa is not a choice, but fate.
Eric: I became an entertainer at the age of 20, and all of my youth was spent with Shinhwa.
I feel so fortunate that I've found the meaning of life, and being able to live such a meaningful life with them.
Hyesung: I feel that Shinhwa exists just like parents. It brings us to meet, let us grow, nurture us into who are now. It is the group called 'Shinhwa'.
Eric: Shinhwa is everything. Without Shinhwa there won't be the present me, and I would not meet precious friends and members who love me.
Dongwan: Like what Eric said, there won't be a present me without Shinhwa.. I will never forget that I come from Shinhwa.. It is the mineral source of my life.
Junjin: to me, Shinhwa is like home. Shinhwa is like a place where I can return to anytime, a place that exists to welcome me back at any moment..
Shinhwa: To us, the number '6' is so unique and so special. It was through all six of us being together that we became the "Shinhwa" we are now,
and it is our desire to continue to be together as six and as Shinhwa... That's why the number '6' is so special to us..
When we first practiced together there wasn't six of us,
but the day we first went up on stage as "Shinhwa" we became six...
it can be seen as destiny...
To us, to be together as "Shinhwa" is only too natural,
and we hope people will just continue to accept "Shinhwa" as we all hope to become better within that name..
(If you keep calling us the longest running dance group then we feel old...^^)
And because of all this, now all our members would probably pick the number '6' as their most special number...
Its because there are six of us that we become a more brighter "Shinhwa",
and because its only too natural to have six of us as "Shinhwa... We've always been together like that..(Posted Image

In dedication to:
- the Chinese Shinhwa fan who passed away just 3 days before shinhwa 9th anniversary.
Today, a chinese shinhwa fan passed away.
Just a few days ago, she was still posting on the shinhwa chinese forum.
She said she felt like she was dying and her mother would look at her with sad teary eyes. She said she knew her end was coming soon, but she hope to spend shinhwa's 9th anniversary and support shinhwa oppas to the end before she go.
Sadly, today...her friend came on and posted that she passed away. She had a heart condition and was said to have a successful surgery, but after the doctor allowed her to return home, she had a high fever and was in need to have a heart transplant but it was all too late.
may she rest in peace.
