Shinhwa recently made a comeback last month. They dropped their album, The Return last March 23, 2012 much to the delight and excitement of fans and their juniors alike. Their comeback has been highly anticipated and they did not disappoint their fans as their title track, Venus has been well loved not only for its catchy tune but also because all the members voices harmonizes together. Following this, Shinhwa recently uploaded the dance version of the music video for Venus in the official youtube account. Check it out below!
On April 10, Shinhwa released the dance version music video for their comeback track, “Venus.” The dance version is slightly different from the official MV for “Venus,” as it cut off all the dramatic scenes and only focused on the group’s perfectly synchronized dance choreography.
Last month, Shinhwa returned to the K-Pop scene for the first time in nearly four years with their comeback track, “Venus.” The full MV is reported to have cost the group over $200,000 USD, as it took over three days to finish the video.
Without further ado, enjoy the dance version music video for “Venus” below!
After making their comeback performance last week, Shinhwa continues with their promotions of "Venus" this week.
Shin Hyesung is still injured, so while he was singing on the side, a masked backup dancer is seen taking his place in the group.
Shinhwa's 10th album "The Return" was released on March 24 and contains11 tracks. This year they celebrate their 14th year together. Recently they announced that they will release a special “Thanks Edition” of their album.
Shinhwa,the longest-running boy group in all of K-Pop history, has finallydropped their long-anticipated 10th album appropriately titled, ‘The Return‘!
Fans have patiently waited a long four years and various members havecompleted their mandatory military service. This album marks thegroup’s 14th anniversary after debuting in 1998.
Continuing with promotions, the handsome idols took the stage today on ‘Music Core‘ to give it their all for both “Venus” and “Hurt“.
Check it out below, and be sure to catch the rest of today’s performances here (coming soon)!
When Shinhwa debuted in 1998, I was happily playing in dirt as a pre-schooler and blissfully unaware of their legendary existence; fast forward 14 years later and here I am in a puddle of fangirl goo. After four years of hiatus where the men went off to perform their duties in the military, Shinhwa returns with an upbeat electro dance song, “Venus.” Its a good song, the chorus is upbeat and enhanced to the max, but you can still hear the melody. My only qualm is with the dubstep, I wished that drop was a lot harder, but it blended well in the end nonetheless. However, as good as this song is, every time I hear it I feel like it would be a song played at the Homecoming dance of a rich, mainly Caucasion high school (personal experience guys) in the suburbs along with Taio Cruzs “Dynamite” and Cascadas “Everytime We Touch.” Personally when I think of Shinhwa, American Suburbia is not the image that comes to mind.
Venus is a song about a man (Shinhwa) finding their Venus’ and heralding her with praises. Venus, just as a brush up, is the Roman goddess of love and beauty. Being the nerd I am, I would much rather be compared to the Goddess Athena cause she was a boss but I digress. Now on to the awesome that is Shinhwa.
Cinematography: 5 out of 5
Shinhwa went with gray, black, and white hues giving the music video a very dark feel. It clashed with the upbeat feel of the song, but just based on the video and the shots alone, I thought it was done fabulously. The shots of the individual members facing various obstacles were taken well and effectively, using some pretty nifty CGI effects. The one scene where Venus is expelled into the air in slow motion with the other members in various poses around her was executed nicely, as was the one with her nest exploding and the debris flying out in slow motion. The CGI effects in this MV were brilliantly done and it didnt look tacky or unnatural. Bravo, so 5 out of 5.
Execution/Choreography: 4 out of 5
The dance is toned down; the movements are fairly fluid without too much emphasis on precision or power. It goes with the staccato beats of the song, but it isnt like the dances we see today in K-pop, thoughts roam to Shinee and Infinite. Yes, they are over 30, but I have seen plenty of 30 year olds with some sick dance moves, so that excuse is out. Though Shinhwa are legends in K-pop their dancing isnt awe inspiring with intricate choreography that makes the dancer in me green with envy. Its basic and simple but nothing too mind-blasting. However, I will have to commend these men for doing something that is rare in the world of Korean boy bands:
Interaction with members of the opposite sex on stage in a sexy, confident manner.
Most K-pop groups just generally don’t, especially in their lead singles. After my initial Hot damnwork it, Shinhwa reaction to the choreo at 1:00, my thoughts ran along the lines of MOGEF is going to get their panties in a bunch over this, I cant wait.
Shinhwa executed the choreography with class and confidence earning them a 4 out of 5.
This music video exuded mysterious and sexy like none other. The men in the video are on a search, not for Venusoh no they already found her but rather they are on a search for her heart. The running through tunnels, power plants, and rooftops in dramatic slow motion was evidence of that sentiment. The scenes of the individual members facing various obstacles such as smoke, spears, and sparks represented the obstacles they had to face in order to find her love.
Though the song itself had no deeper meaning than that of a simple love song, I will have to give the band mad props for the little subliminal messages that occurred throughout the MV. There were brief flashes of letters too quick to make out because Shinhwa does a good job of distracting us with their hotness. Well played.
They say curiosity killed the cat, but Im not a cat so I spent a good ten minutes slowing the music video down and trying to decipher what these letters mean. What I found out was that during the times that letters would run by like at :38 or :46, the letters were spelling out the English word that Shinhwa sang at that precise momentin reverse. I felt like Nicholas Cage at that very moment of discovery. Not only do they have letters but also image of ancient artifacts and statues depicting Venus or an equivalent, one such image was that of the Woman of Willendrof. The Venus of Brassempouy also made several appearances too. And the cherry on top of this subliminal sundae? Around the end of the music video they flashed Chang Jo Forever. Awww. You guys are so cute.
Over all Shinhwa made an excellent comeback, the entirety of the Return album was beautiful and I loved the songs on it and you could see that hard work was put in for the production. The music video in my opinion was well done as was the song and I have been throughly enjoying their comeback thus far. Shinhwa gets 4.67 out of 5 for Venus and it’s a score well earned.
In the words of Barney Stinson, Shinhwa you truly are legen.wait for it.dary.
