Pre-Inspiration #1[edit]

After releasing State Of The Art, Shinhwa quickly began preparing their first Japanese album and single. As preparation work for their Japanese album release, Shinhwa held a press conference in Japan on April 14, 2006, in addition to performing at MNET's anniversary celebration in Japan on April 15, 2006. The press conference came as a result of Shinhwa's effort to break into the Japanese market, with the release of their first Japanese language single This is the Sun in Our Hearts on June 14, 2006, debuting at #9 on the Oricon Chart, and their first official album, Inspiration #1, in Japan in August, debuting at #4, both selling 100,000 copies.
