The Classic



  • I. Introduction


    The Classic is the eleventh studio album of the boy band SHINHWA, in commemoration of their 15th anniversary.

    It was released on 16 May 2013 by Shinhwa Company and distributed by CJ E&M Music.

    The group conducted an Asian concert tour 2013 Shinhwa Grand Tour : The Classic to support the album with the first show in Hong Kong on 8 June 2013.

    It was first released as a limited edition and followed by a regular Thanks Edition on 21 May.

    According to Gaon Chart as of the end of December 2013, the album has sold a cumulative total of 78,727 copies, of both editions.

    The album includes 10 tracks produced by producers and lyricists, Ahn Young-min, Kim Do-hyun, Andrew Choi, Neighborhood Brother and Brian Kim; as well as Shinhwa member Lee Min-woo. The album's lead track is "This Love", which was gifted by Lee McCutcheon, James Flannigan and UK producer Andrew Jackson, who also worked on their previous lead track "Venus" from The Return in 2012.

    It is a British style electronic track, which shares the same characteristics and dreamlike quality as "Venus" but with heavy basses, deep electronics; and a sudden change to light mood at the end.

    The album was released as a limited edition of 40,000 copies, in a black tin case with a 100-page colour photo book and lyrics book, with photos by Zo Sun-hee.

    It was sold out on 8 May 2013, the day pre-order started, with the server of Synnara Music crashing for over an hour due to overwhelming web traffic.

    To meet the demand Shinhwa Company announced the release of a regular Thanks Edition, with pre-orders available from 10 May, released on 21 May. The regular edition is smaller with a paper out-box emblazoned with Shinhwa′s official logo and also contain a 100-page photobook by photographer Zo Sun-hee.
