Hyesung: A night where Hyesung shines. Hello, this is DJ Shin Hyesung of Hye-Bit-Bam. Seems like it’s a really long time since I’ve greeted everyone through the radio. Very happy to meet you. The weather recently is really chilly. There’re many people around me who’ve caught a cold and are suffering. I’m also sick and suffering now, so everyone, when sleeping, do tuck yourself under the blanket, and sleep warmly. Be careful of catching a cold. We’re already halfway through September. Everyone’s really anticipating the 3rd song for Once Again, the song to be released in September. I’m looking forward to it too. I’m working hard on it. The 3rd song of Once Again, the song title and the artist who’ll be joining me, I’ll convey it next week. Please wait a little while more. Before that, everyone is really curious, so if I’m to give a tiny hint, firstly, as compared to the previously released Buen Camino and Doll, this song is more groovy, a very stylish song. Seems like there’ll be many people who’ll guess correctly. If you wait just a little while more, I’ll bring an awesome song. Please look forward to it. And there’s one more news that I’d like to convey to everyone. Unlike how I’d planned, this news was first conveyed through a news report, and I find it very unfortunate. I really wanted to tell everyone about this myself. And that is related to S’s album, something I’ve worked on with very good friends of mine that I’ve know for a long time. It’s been exactly 11 years. Amongst us, we’ve talked about released our 2nd album and that album is finally going to be released. Seems like I’ll be really busy in the second half of the year. My Once Again project that will go on till the year end, and the S album, and although it isn’t 100% confirmed, the best drama currently, I’m also preparing a song for that drama’s OST. On top of that, I also have to prepare for Shinhwa’s album next year. There’s a lot of things I have to do. Everyone, I hope you can give me lots of support so that I won’t feel tired carrying out such a variety of music activities and can enjoy doing them. It’s been 16 years since I debuted, during the 16 years, I’ve only focused on music. I don’t know about other parts, but in terms of music, I hope everyone can believe in me. This year, the various music activities that I’ll have, these new tries, will be a great help to my long-awaited 10th anniversary album, ah, it’s my 10th anniversary. Everyone, yeah, please believe in me. The weather’s really chilly, everyone, please be careful of catching a cold. Then, I’ll be saying goodbye here. Everyone, see you again.

On 16th’s broadcast of SBS “Magic Eye”, Lee Hyori’s wish for Fin.K.L’s reunion has attracted the attention of fans. Also present was god member Kim Taewoo. This year, god had released a new album for the first time in 9 years, and are meeting fans as a full 5-member group for the first time in 12 years.
Fin.K.L and god are both so-called 1st generation idols, having had the greatest popularity in the late 90s and early 2000s. Debuting in May 1998, Fin.K.L. did not use the word disband but after releasing their last digital single in 2005, there hasn’t been a time where the 4 members, Lee Hyori, Ok Juhyun, Lee Jin, Sung Yuri have gathered together to release a new song.
Debuting in early 1999, god didn’t release a new song after their 7th full album in 2005, and, 9 years later, members Park Junhyung, Danny Ahn, Yoon Kyesang, Son Hoyoung, Kim Taewoo gathered together to release their 8th full album this July. They have even completed a domestic concert tour this Summer. It has been 12 years since the group gathered together fully, including Yoon Kyesang, since 2002’s 5th album.
Debuting in 1999, Hwanhee and Brian’s Fly To The Sky also revealed a new album this May, reuniting after 5 years, and idol band Buzz, who took their first step into the music industry in 2003, also released a new single last August, reuniting again after 8 years.
These idol groups who had reached the peak of their careers in the late 90s and early-mid 2000s, have been around for more than 10 years and their long-awaited reunion brought on continued success for their digital releases and concerts, showing extraordinary attention from fans.
In the reunion rush of the 1st generation idol groups this year, what stands out in my mind is one team. And that is Korea’s longest running idol group Shinhwa, who has consistently held music activities for more than 16 years.
After Shinhwa released their first full album “The Solver” in 1998, they released their 2nd album “T.O.P” in 1999, 3rd album “Only One” in 2000, 4th album “Hey Come On” in 2001, 5th album “Perfect Man” in March 2002, 6th album “Your Wedding” in December 2002, 7th album “Brand New” in 2004, 8th album “State Of The Art” in 2006, 9th album “Shinhwa 9th” in 2008, 10th album “The Return” in 2012, “The Classic” in 2013 and have continually had music activities for 16 years.
