Shinhwa postpones 12th LP releasePioneering K-pop group Shinhwa delayed the release date of the group’s 12th album to January from the latter half of this year, according to local reports yesterday.
The media reported that Shinhwa will make a comeback in the first week of January and will embark on a tour starting in March. Industry insiders speculate that the concerts will be held on a grand scale to celebrate the group’s 17th anniversary since its debut in 1998.
Following the domestic tour, the group will reportedly kick off a world tour as well.
“In the past 16 years, people described Shinhwa as a long-lasting group with good team work. Now we think it is time to go a step further. We will prove that Shinhwa is nothing like other groups by making a grand comeback next January,” said Lee Min-woo, a Shinhwa member, to a local reporter.
Preparations for the group’s new album will begin in October.
