I watched their live comeback Venus on Music Core and I can safely say that i’ve never seen men that mature sing like they do.
Honestly, i was quite worried at first. I knew that fans would turn up but I thought that they wouldn’t be able to pull it off, being already in their thirties and having a long break from their last few live performances.
But, I soon saw that I didn’t need to worry.
They were utterly amazing.
As the first guy (not the rapper) actually sang, I was literally like, “What the hell? He has a voice…”
Of course, there were weak spots in the performance; the levels were a bit out and they seemed very nervous, but I genuinely applaud them and feel that the fans of SHINHWA who stuck by them for years or months prior to their comeback should certainly be proud.
I think it must be really hard for them singing Venus, I mean, the style of music has changed in indefinite ways since they last promoted.
Listen to Perfect Man (Yes, I did my research) and compare it to Venus. I would have liked them to have tried to adopt their own style considering the respect they have, but of course, that’s a risky job to handle even as veterans.
Some of them were a bit stiff, and the touching of young women part was really weird, but I loved it.
This is what I want to be like when i’m their age; wise, smart and can still rock a good tune.
Bravo SHINHWA, You were utterly mind-blowing.
