Shinhwa Gives 60 Staff Members Big Monetary Bonuses


Shinhwa is setting a new record each day just by being the longest running idol group in K-Pop history. Even with fifteen years under its belt, Shinhwa proves that it is possible to set another record.

On May 27, Shinhwa Company’s CEO Eric (the leader of Shinhwa) rewarded every staff member in the company, from the executive board to the newest employee, with big bonuses and its drawing the attention of the public.

Eric previously made a promise on May 23 on “M! Countdown.” He said, “If we get first place, we will give all the company employees bonuses.” Companies usually have a “company dinner treating beef” so the staff members were surprised by the unexpected gift.

One industry insider commented, “Usually, entertainment agencies have a great mood through company dinners, but I heard that the staff members were really surprised when they received money. Especially since they gave the same amount to all the staff members without regards to their position in the company creating an inspiring atmosphere.”

It wasn’t revealed how much each staff member received, but it was shared that it’s a substantial amount.

Meanwhile, Shinhwa plans to kickstart its Asian tour in June.
