Shinhwa (Hangul: 신화, Hanja: 神話>) is a South Korean boy band that debuted on 24 March 1998 with six members: Eric Mun, Lee Min-woo, Kim Dong-wan, Shin Hye-sung, Jun Jin and Andy
Lee. It has enjoyed success alongside Sechs Kies, g.o.d., Fly to the Sky, Turbo, Fin. K.L., H.O.T. and S.E.S.. Shinhwa is the Korean word for myth or legend.
Shinhwa was initially formed under SM Entertainment; however, it moved to Good Entertainment in July 2003, upon the expiration of their contract. Whilst under Good Entertainment as Shinhwa, each of the members pursued their own solo careers under individual companies. The group also mentored Korean boy band Battle. In 2011, members of the group formed Shinhwa Company to continue to perform together. They made their
comeback to the music industry in March 2012, after a four year hiatus, during which the band members served individual mandatory military services, with the
release of their tenth album The Return and concert tour.
