M Lee Minwoo showed his pride at being called the longest running idol.
On the afternoon of the 5th, at a cafe in Shinsadong, an interview was carried out with M Lee Minwoo, who is returning with his solo debut 10th anniversary album “M+TEN”.
On this day, when asked ‘Are you proud to be the longest running idol?’, Lee Minwoo said, “Very. That I’m still part of a group called Shinhwa, that alone makes me feel thankful. Thanks to Shinhwa, the idea that the life of an idol singer is short was broken,” showing his pride.
Continuing on, he said, “When I was a trainee, I was given a soloist offer. However, because I learnt about the charm of a team when I was in a dance group during my middle and high school days, so I politely rejected saying ‘I want to be in a team’, and “Because I’m part of a team called Shinhwa, that’s why the solo part M is around. If there’s something I’d like to try, it’d be unit activities. I think it’ll be nice if I did it with Eric.”
Also, when asked the reason that Shinhwa is long-lasting, Lee Minwoo said, “I think it’s because when there are incidents and accidents, the members don’t think of it as harmful, instead we come to a mutual understanding and work to solve the problem. Even if I’m born again, I’d like to be born as Shinhwa. Although they say nothing is everlasting in the world, I’d like to protect this team forever,” showing his affection for Shinhwa.

Singer Lee Minwoo showed his affection for colleague and junior Rain and praised his breakthrough.
Lee Minwoo released his solo debut 10th anniversary commemorative special album ‘M+TEN’ on the 6th, and revealed all 5 songs from the album, including the title song, on various online sites. In relation to this, during a recently held interview, Lee Minwoo mentioned, “Rain is a really smart person.”
Lee MInwoo said, “When I was resting, I paid careful attention to the juniors’ activities. Rain is a dongsaeng that I really like and his performance this time round was indeed cool. His ‘Rain-Jinah’ performance together with teacher Tae Jinah was a breakthrough. What’s really smart about it was resolved well. Although he is my junior but I learn from things like this.”
He laughingly joked “I wondered what it’ll be like if I did a ‘M-Daekwan’ performance.” Like how ‘Rain-Jinah’ is created by combining Rain and Tae Jinah, M-Daekwan is a combined name that combines M, Lee Minwoo’s stage name for his solo activities, and Tae Jinah’s rival, Song Daekwan.
Lee Minwoo elaborated, “Rain is a marketable person. I know that he is currently in Hollywood to film a movie, it’s nice seeing him always working with passion. There’s really a lot of commonalities between him and me. We both love music and the stage a lot. Just that he is already a world star, and because he is working with an even greater dream in mind, there is greater anticipation on his future.”
