Shinhwa will be on MBC Music Show Champion on May 22nd. The show has a poll that fans can vote in that accounts for 15% of their ranking system. Shinhwa is now up on the poll, so vote for them here after logging in to Melon! You can vote up to 3 times per Melon account. (I’m not sure if there is a IP address limit, so try voting with multiple Melon accounts if you have them).
Shinhwa’s back, baby. Let’s help them get that #1 win! ‘This Love’ deserves it! :)

With longevity you build a large fan base and Shinhwa‘s fans came out in full force.
Their 11th album ‘The Classic‘ went on pre-sale at 10AM KST on May 8, but due to an overwhelming surge of traffic, the server for Synnara Records crashed immediately as soon as the clock hit 10:00 AM.
Synnara Records, the pre-order site, revealed, “Most popular idols crash the server for 1-2 hours, but the server will come back up soon after that. However, Shinhwa’s pre-order site is still down. It’s the first time this has happened in our history.”
Shinhwa Company was awed themselves as they announced, “We sold out the concert last year, and sold out every copy of the album last year. We were wondering if they’d perform well this year as well, but we never thought they could crash the server. We’re very awed.”
Shinhwa’s 11th album ‘The Classic’ will be released on May 16.
It’s almost that time of the year again where Shinhwa will be on music shows promoting their new album. Let’s be ready to do all that we can to support them.
Here is a list of things that we can do. Most of the information is word of mouth data collected from other fans and various websites; they are not all officially confirmed. This page is just meant to describe all the possible things that we can do to support Shinhwa during their promotional activities. Corrections and additional information are welcome.
I know that this may seem like a lot of things to do, but it shouldn’t be too hard to take some time out of your day here and there to do a couple of these things. Shinhwa has continuously kept their promises and worked hard for us for the last 15 years, let’s do as much as we can to show them our appreciation. Heck, even if they don’t care about winning awards, let’s just do it out of our sheer pride of being Shinhwa Changjo. If it all seems too overwhelming, the one thing that I would recommend you do is the “Shinhwa Project” as that will be most effective in trying to improve Shinhwa’s chances of getting 1st place on music shows.
The information found in this post can also be found on this side blog I made, “Supporting Shinhwa,” for those who don’t like reading long lists and prefer an easier-to-read format.
The things that music programs take into account in their weekly selection that we can participate in:
★★ 1. Digital Music Scores ★★
Downloading and streaming Shinhwa’s music from Korean music portals. This is the most important factor in music countdown programs.
SHCJ in Korea have set up a way to help fans from all around the world contribute to digital music scores (our contribution is usually limited without having a Korean social security number). What we can do:
- Purchasing Music through Soribada’s Global Website
★★ 2. Purchasing Albums ★★
Physical music album sales are a relatively small factor on music show charts, but they are still very important and a way for fans to support Shinhwa that can be done by fans from anywhere.
- Where to purchase from (pending the actual release of the album):
There will probably be many more sites out there where you can purchase their 11th album from, just make sure that they are trustworthy before buying from them, and that they reflect in Korea’s CD sales charts (Hanteo, GaOn, etc.). It is up to you to find out the site with the best deal for you to purchase from, and try to purchase the album while they are promoting if you can.
I just want to add one more thing. As fans, we should be LEGALLY supporting our artists. I understand that not everyone has the access or luxury to spend the money to purchase albums, but if it is possible, please find a way to legally purchase their music if you can. Please don’t post or spread links of illegal downloads of their music and please help flag down those kinds of links so that they aren’t widely propagated around the internet. Please, please legally support them if you can.
★★ 3. Voting Polls ★★
Fans can participate in polls that contribute to music show rankings:
Fans can participate in general polls that may indirectly contribute to music show rankings (pending if Shinhwa is included in the polls):
There will probably be other general polls floating around with Shinhwa in it as they promote. Do spread them around when you see them :).
★★ 4. SNS Votes during Music Shows ★★
★★ 5. Searching ‘신화’★★
Searching 신화 on music portals may help digital scores. Fans are still unsure about this, but it does not hurt to try (and it doesn’t take much time to do so).
So please search for 신화 or (the promoted song name) on each site a few times a day (try to coordinate with others to all search at once so that it can be more effective).
Whenever possible, log in to the site, and use Internet Explorer. Please wait at least 2 minutes before searching again.
Let’s do all that we can to support them. Shinhwa Changjo fighting!
Shinhwa Project: “Project to make Shinhwa #1!”
This is an email I received from Shinhwa Project about how fans from all around the world can participate in their fan-support activities for Shinhwa’s 11th Album activities:
Hello, this is Shinhwa Project.
First of all, thank you for your interests in our project.
As you all know, there are 2 ways to help us:
1) Sending money to buy music and 2) creating IDs on music websites. We’re preparing a Paypal account right now, and when we’re ready, we’ll post a notice about it.
We know there are so many international fans from all around the world who want to help out, so we’re working on making English directions right now. It will be updated on our website soon, so please refer to it.
