I got into Shinhwa when I was visiting my cousin in Korea... six years ago? She kept dissing them (she's a 1TYM fan), so I just started defending them when we watched music videos... and then ended up buying all their CDs... and becoming addicted to everything that has to do with Shinhwa.
My favorite is Hyesung. Sooo cute!
I go to a college in the South, so there's not much of a Korean community... sigh.
