Battle (배틀) is a Korean boy band that debuted on December 17, 2006 with the release of their first single "Crash". They are most popular for winning the reality show, Let's Coke Play! Battle Shinhwa! The group includes Ryu, Tae-hwa, Lio, Shin Ki-hyun, Chris, and Hwi-chan.
Ryu (Won Seung-jae), 20, picked by Andy of Shinhwa, is the oldest among the six and the leader. Having been a model, he decided to put his catwalk days behind him to concentrate on his music and on a possible acting career.
Ki-hyun (Shin Ki-hyun), 20, who stands at an intimidating 187cm, often slouches to look the same height as his fellow members. Kihyun loves playing soccer and is competitive at heart. Chosen by Shinhwa's member Eric, Ki-hyun contributes his talent in rapping to Battle’s songs but he has worked on his vocals and now sings some small parts in their songs.
Lio (Park Ji-woon), 20, was chosen by Jun Jin of Shinhwa and was also featured in Junjin’s first solo album. Having studied in China, Lio is fluent in Mandarin and is currently studying English. Armed with a mischievous smile, Lio is considered to be one of the best dancers in Battle, charming fans with his smooth moves and lopsided grin. He was featured in Jun Jin's solo debut under the track "Come Back."
Tae-hwa (Jin Tae-hwa), 19, is the best dancer in the group, chosen by Shinhwa's own choreographer and dancer Min Woo to be part of Battle. During “Let’s Coke Play! Battle Shinhwa!” the popularity award was bestowed upon him. He has a great voice which is used on all of Battles songs.
Hwi-chan (Kim Taek-wan), 19, replaced Shinhwa member Dongwan’s initial choice, Jang-hyun. After Jang-hyun decided to head to college instead, Hwi-chan stepped in and joined Battle, providing his strong, melodic voice to the group. Having lived with his grandma for most of his life, because Hwichan's parents worked long hours, he received devastating news that she died not long after he was eliminated from the show.
Chris (Jung Hyung-rok), 18, is the mangnae of the group and was picked by Hye Sung of Shinhwa. Though he was born in Seoul, he and his family moved to California when he was young. He attended Burbank Elementary School, Ross Middle School, Gahr High School, and then Torrance High School. Rather like the mother of the group, Chris loves to cook for his fellow members, and lends a soft, sweet-catchy voice to Battle.
