First-generation K-pop boy band Shinhwa is going retro. Celebrating its 18th debut anniversary this year, the group will be releasing 8,000 vinyl copies of live recordings from its anniversary concert which was held earlier this year in March at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, according to the band’s management agency Shinhwa Company on Tuesday.
Containing 10 of Shinhwa’s biggest hits, including “Once in a Life,” “Crazy,” “The Days,” “Voyage” and others, the record is currently available for preorder online at Hot Tracks, Interpark, Yes24 and others for 40,000 won.
Both physical and digital editions of the 45-minute-long vinyl, titled “Hero,” will be available from offline and online channels in Dec. 13.
Most recently, the group released the first part of its 13th studio album “Unchanging” last month. The second and final part of the album is scheduled to be unveiled on Jan. 3.
The six-member act is also gearing up for its upcoming concerts, taking place at Kintex in Goyang, Gyeonggi Province, on Dec. 17 and 18 at 4 p.m.
