By  | 

What happens when Korea’s longest running idol group is set to make a comeback? Shinhwa Company revealed on May 9 that all 40,000 copies of the limited edition version of its 11th album, The Classic have been sold out.

Pre-orders for the highly anticipated album were opened on May 8, and fans have rushed to online music stores to reserve their copy, causing the servers to crash with the explosive response. The album was sold out in a matter of seconds according to the company.

A representative expressed that: “The limited edition contains new color and authenticity compared to the tenth album. As fans waited long for Shinhwa’s comeback, we intend to give them the best gift”.

For fans who missed out, don’t worry: the regular version will be released along with the  limited edition, on May 16.

Were you lucky enough to grab your copy of the album, or did you miss out? If so, will you be buying the regular version?

    I understand what you mean. I too think like that also. I’m also Korean myself and can’t believe those things happen.

    SooyeonCanastillo isn’t trying to be mean or anything. I do in fact agree with her because life is too short and you should make the best of it. And killing yourself is not the answer. No matter how hard life is? Keep going on. Also it make you look really selfish by doing that. I don’t understand why Korean people are doing that. I’m also Korean myself.

    is it that heartbreaking? why commit suicide? too much pressure? cope up with it! jeez, i really hate reading Korean suicide news… They should think better, act better, understand the consequences better… jeez, take an insult and ignore it! Why not just ignore it? why would you go suicide and let other people worry? LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST! Not ending it when you’re not even half-way through on your life! -.-‘ jeez…
