On the June 28 broadcast of MBC's 'Radio Star', Shinhwa's Junjin appeared as one of the guests!


Junjin mentioned how Shinhwa "performed solidly for the past 19 years without a single member leaving or the group disbanding."


He then added, "This is actually the first time we're revealing this, but we were listed in 'Guinness Books of World Records' for being the longest-running group," surprising the MCs!


Did you know this about Shinhwa?

I really want to call b.s. on this but I don't have the proof. I can't find evidence that they aren't the longest running group, but I also haven't found evidence that they have been officially recognized by Guinness. I'm not trying to take anything away from Shinhwa, I just feel like there's been groups around for longer.

Wish it was true. I think this was more of a joke from Junjin. Lol.

Maggie BakaKaori 27 days ago

Me too.

I don't know about longest, but isn't SMAP longer thou?

JungHalla0903 Maggie 28 days ago

I looked SMAP up but I believe they aren't active anymore and SHINHWA is still active. But for reals tho 28 years, is a REALLY long time. Props to SMAP.

ARMY_BTS_OT7 JungHalla0903 27 days ago

but smap still does have the record, because 19 years can't beat 28. Even if smap aren't active anymore (and they were active until last year december 31). So that means there is no way for them to have had the record. But ofcourse shinhwa is doing just as well as smap. Hope they wont disband 'cause i was pretty sad about smap 😭

"without a single member leaving" -> Katsuyuki Mori till 1996

Maggie Murderfucker 27 days ago

Thanks for the info. I didn't know about Mori-san. But aren't there many rock bands that go on for a long time? Technically, Andy missed out on at least one album right? Andy was inactive for a while.

minwoosx Maggie 27 days ago

Andy was in America bc his mother was sick, he didn't leave the group so they have no member change

JungHalla0903 Maggie 27 days ago

For Andy, he didn't leave the group he was just not active during that time so basically he was still a member

JungHalla0903 ARMY_BTS_OT7 27 days ago

I don't really see SHINHWA disbanding anytime soon tbh, seems like they know each other well enough, respect each other's individual activities, and they all have the desire to continue SHINHWA which is how they made it this far currently. Many idols look up to them and I can see why

Maggie JungHalla0903 27 days ago

I know. But the whole thing about "we haven't disbanded" is a little obscure. Like 2am still says that they didn't disband, but literally all the members have their own labels, and there are no contractual commitments to each other as a group. I suppose there's gotta to be some rock bands that go on a long time. But I can't name one fore sure.

JungHalla0903 Maggie 27 days ago

Yeah I've noticed that as well with some groups, like they say they haven't disbanded yet all of them are in different companies and it would be really hard to have a comeback because they're in different companies. When they say that, it sort of opens up the possibility of another comeback, not anytime soon though after they say that. Shinhwa is different though, cause even if they started their own labels and are doing different things they still are promoting as a group every year together since they have debuted.
