History[edit]

Shinhwa Broadcast is part of Shinhwa's comeback to the entertainment industry in March 2012, after a four-year hiatus, during which band members served mandatory military service. The show is also the group's first exclusive variety programme.[3] It is produced by Yoon Hyun-jun, who previously worked on another jTBC programme, Girls’ Generation and the Dangerous Boys.[4] The producers held a public shooting and press conference at the Jamsil Students' Gymnasium on 15 March to showcase the programme.[5]

On the programme, leader Eric said "in order to differentiate ourselves from other K-pop groups, and to make our strengths stand out, we made Shinhwa Broadcasting. We've found a program that could go for a long run and met producers that we can trust". Jun Jin also commented that being in the show took them back to the time when they lived together and were really close to each other. He further added that the show "allows us to mentally let go of ourselves".[6][7]

The show premiered on Saturday, 17 March 2012, at 22:00. In May, the programme changed its timeslot from 22:00 to 23:00. On 13 October, the show was given a new timeslot and changed format, from episode 33 on 28 October, it aired on Sundays at 19:40, where member received Private Tutorials on various topics.[8]

It was announced on 24 February during the 49th episodes that the show is to go on hiatus while members concentrate on preparing for their 15th Anniversary Concert being held on 16 and 17 March at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena, and 11th studio album released in May 2013. It returned on 7 April with a new format of Mother’s Touch cooking competition.[9] On 22 May 2013, jTBC announced that the show is to again go on hiatus from 16 June 2013 onwards, initially till September, whilst Shinhwa members are on tour in Asia for their 2013 Shinhwa Grand Tour: The Classic.[10]

The show returned in November, after a hiatus of five months, for the second season of Small Legends Found By Shinhwa in a new time slot of 23:00. A new opening sequence for the show was filmed, and a behind-the-scene video was also released.[11]
