Shinhwa, Korea’s longest-lasting idol group who debuted in 1998, appeared on KBS 2TV’s talk show Hello and displayed their unique wit and conversational skills. During the recording session, a college girl appeared onscreen and appealed for a solution to her problem with her mother, who has forced her onto a diet that required her to eat only sweet potatos instead of boiled rice.

The MCs asked Shinhwa: “Have you ever experienced in dieting?” Kim Dong-wan revealed his own dieting experience, saying “Once, I went on a diet that involved eating only rice puffs for one year. I gradually felt my body became abnormal and had skin complaints due to malnutrition. After that, I quit the rice puff diet.”

After a while, the girl with the problem appeared and said about her agony “It is hard because my mother forces me to diet even though I would make my own dieting efforts. 

An MC requested that Shinhwa “Motivate the girl in agony to succeed in her diet.” At that, Shinhwa promised a surprising commitment, which received much applause from the audience in the studio.

Kim Dong-wan’s Solo Career

The other members contributed to the album as well, with Lee Min-woo writing, composing, and arranging the song My Love and Jun Jin helping him with choreography. Kim Dong-wan expressed his gratitude for their contributions, saying, “I’ve been working together with the group Shinhwa, thus there was a lot of pressure working on the solo album, but since the other members showed up and helped me with most of it, it has been a great big help for me”. Kim Dong-wan’s first single was the ballad, Handkerchief, a song about a guy who consoles his girlfriend and wipes away her tears. Despite Shinhwa’s musical genre being predominantly American R&B and bubblegum pop, Kim said he wanted his album to be more J-pop influenced, having redone a song by GLAY×EXILE in the album.

For the debut album, Kim Dong-wan also lost a lot of weight, saying that “it’s not good for a ballad singer to have a muscular image. Someone singing ballads should have a lean, ‘hungry-looking’ image.” His album sold over 25,000 copies in two days, with 41,490 copies sold by the end of 2007; it was ranked 19th in album sales for the year. In 2008, he released his 2nd solo album, The Secret; Between Us. The album featured collaborations with Tiffany of SNSD, Jade Valerie, Shinhwa bandmate Eric, and Heritage.
