After a long hiatus of two years, Park Jung Hyun has finally released her 6th album.

Shinhwa (single)- Winter Story 2007 (released)

Shinhwa – Winter Story 2007

1. Game
2. I’ll Never Let You Go
3. The Day It Snows (The Snowy Night)

Shinhwa are back with their new single "WINTER STORY 2007" after 11 months. There are a total of 3 tracks in this single and their title song is called "Game".

■ A song that was specifically created for Shinhwa, "GAME"!

"Shinhwa" and composer "Lee Sang In" have come together again!
Shinhwa’s title song "GAME" was composed by composer "Lee Sang In", who created many hit songs for many great artistes. This is a powerful dance song that shows off the members’ great vocal skills and Eric’s fast rap. Although this is a dance song, it does not follow the usual music trend that’s popular in Korea. It is a song that only Shinhwa can sing and show off their powerful dance choreography on stage. This song is expected to be another hit that will represent them as one of the best male groups in Korea.

■ All Six Members Being Together And Celebrating!

Their album jacket was created by Kim Hyung Sun, who has worked on Shinhwa’s 8th, M’s 3rd and Lyn’s 4th album jackets and many others in the past. The concept for this album jacket is a winter party with the six Shinhwa members. This album jacket is filled with natural images of the Shinhwa members. Unlike their previous album jackets which mostly had group and individual pictures, this album jacket has the members in pairs so that it looks like they are having a real wine party. We will be able to sense and feel the strong friendship the members have with each other while flipping through the pages of the album jacket.

■ Japan, China Asia Tour FOREVER Shinhwa!!!

Last year when they released their 8th album [State Of The Art], they successfully held a tour in China, Thailand, Singapore, Japan and many more. They will be touring around Asia again this year. After releasing their "WINTER STOY 2007" single, they will be holding a concert in Japan (8th and 9th) and China (15th). They are expected to sing the songs in their new single for the first time during their tour.

Track 2 – I’ll Never Let You Go
This is a great R&B/Ballad song that was written by lyricist "Lee Yoon Jung". It shows off the members’ smooth vocals and lyrical melody. This song is dedicated to their fans who have strongly supported and given them unconditional love for 9 years.

Track 3 – The Day It Snows (The Snow Night)
This Japanese-style dance song was composed by composer Lee Seung Hwan, who’s also a member of the project group "The Story". Eric contributed a lot to this song by writing the lyrics and directing the members’ vocals. – credits to purpletiger86
