Sinawe (Korean: 시나위) is a heavy metal/rock band from South Korea. They are credited as being the first heavy metal band in South Korea. During its golden age in the late 1980s and early 1990s, many renowned musicians in South Korea such as Seo Taiji, Kim Jong-seo, Bada Kim and Yim Jae-beom improved their musical abilities while members of the group.

Shin Dae-cheol, the son of Shin Jung-hyeon, who is considered the father of Korean rock music, formed Sinawe in 1986 and they released their first album that same year.[1] The album was very well-received, selling 400,000 copies, and the band took to the forefront of Korean heavy metal.[1] In 1996, five years after the group's breakup in 1991, Shin Dae-cheol reformed Sinawe with new members.[2][3][4][5]
