“Shinhwa will be back as 6” Lee Min Woo criticized for mentioning Shin Hye Sung amid his DUI controversy 

Following Kim Dong Wan, Shinhwa’s Lee Min Woo also mentioned Shin Hye Sung, who came under fire for drunk driving.

In JTBC’s ‘K-909’, which aired on December 10th, Shinhwa unit WDJ consisting of Lee Min Woo, Kim Dong Wan, and Jun Jin appeared as guests.

On this day, when asked, “What kind of senior do you want to be remembered for?“, Kim Dong Wan said, “I don’t want to decide which senior I will be remembered as because it’s up to those who remember. If I survive for a long time and stand on stage, maybe that is what makes me a memorable senior.”


BoA said, “When I’m with junior idols, I’ve heard a lot that they want to be a group like Shinhwa and Super Junior who are still so close and doing well. I think you will continue to stand in front of us under the name of Shinhwa for a long time.”

Regarding this, Lee Min Woo said, “I don’t know when we will return as a group of 6, but I want to promise you that we will definitely return. We want to become a senior group who can be applauded by juniors for doing our best, working hard in our respective positions, while maintaining a team like that.”


However, there are viewers who are uncomfortable with Lee Min Woo’s remark about Shinhwa’s comeback as a complete group of six. This is because member Shin Hye Sung recently caused controversy in October for being charged with driving under the influence. 

Shin Hye Sung was arrested in the middle of the road in Tancheon 2nd Bridge, Songpa-gu, Seoul last October for refusing to take a breathalyzer test. In addition, the car Shin Hye Sung was driving was reportedly stolen. Shin Hye Sung was also charged with drunk driving in 2007. Currently, he has been handed over to the prosecution.

In this situation, it is pointed out that Lee Min Woo’s mention of Shin Hye Sung was not appropriate. Previously, Kim Dong Wan also mentioned Shin Hye Sung despite his DUI controversy. On December 6th, Kim Dong Wan appeared on MBC FM4U’s ‘Kim Shin Young’s Noon Song of Hope’ and picked Shin Hye Sung as the ‘Shinhwa member who is likely to live a long life’. 

Meanwhile, Shinhwa formed their first unit WDJ after 24 years of debut and released their first mini-album ‘Come To Life’ on December 6th.
