Shinhwa's yaoi* moment

Aieee... now this is too close for comfort. Can someone please explain why the boys of Shinhwa are getting nekkid together?

Not hot.


So not hot. Looks like someone missed out
on some gym sessions.

Edit 12:50pm:

Okay, I was intrigued. I needed to find a reason for this abomination. And surprisingly, I did! The above pictures were taken sometime in 2001 to promote their fourth album (many fans booed this tasteless career move... I couldn't agree more). The photo shoot was held in Manila and it was documented on video!



*yaoi is a term commonly used to categorize gay themed manga.

Why did they shoot those photos?

Orchid said...

BOO!

Orchid said...

The video is actually not as bad as the photos. Except they have this blank expression on their faces every time! Shinhwa should go to modeling school. Maybe get some tips from Tyra Banks & the America's Next Top Model program.

Liz said...

Whose bright idea was it? That person should be shot.

ksw said...

Edae,

oh Christ. Leave them alone. What are you jealous you don't have bodies like them? I know know what you're talking about with the "missed gym class" crack, they are all extremely buff and have nice bodies. Do I agree that they should all be standing naked together? no. It's tasteless really but in all honesty SOMEONE had to of bought them so whatever. They didn't get to where they are by being stupid.

Lem said...

Screw you all, I love it.

I Think it's artful, there has to ebe a deeper meaning to it. Celebrities don't just get naked and take pictures as a career move if it isnt apart of something to create a bigger and better picture. People stop your bitching and your pathetic little 'eww's and get over it, what's done is done and personally I like it.

Ashley said...

even tho its gross, its not their fault. people told them to do it.
are you guys dumb or something.
i agree its ... ... as one of you guys said it YUCK.but hey if they wanna do that its their choice.

good-bye

Sophie said...

I heard on a tv show called Zipzigi, that they said they did it because it has some meaning/feeling behind it. (or something like that.)
i don't like the pictures tho.

reginald said...

shinhwa did this "nude photo album" as their or their management's way of making transition from "idol boy band" to mature persona that's befitting shinhwa as they were getting older. some artists in a show were asked whos body they prefer most and mostly they commented that eric was really handsome and gorgeous, junjin was really handsome and masculine, dongwan was handsome and chiselled but they chose hyesung's. i was surprised why hyesung's and not even minwoo who was handsome and good body build. and it was stated that when the nude photo album was released it was off the stand as soon as it was displayed for sale. whatever the consequence of that decision, we can see now that after they left SM and signed with Good EM, they were able to maintain their popularity and continue reaping success. besides that photoshoot, all shinhwa members somehow maintained decent way of living. so i should say, career wise, that nude photo album decision was taken by shinhwa a calculated risk and they won. thank you.

This photoshoot was not about if the pictures are hot or not. This was actually part of a project proposed by the photographer. There was an official art exhibition where Shinhwa's wild photoshoot photos were displayed as part of the exhibition. There's a video of some of the members attending the exhibition. There is nothing dirty about these photos. It is only because we know they are Shinhwa that people think this way. If this was anyone else in the collection, it would simply be classified as art.
