One of the hottest boy group that ever came to debut under SM Entertainment back in the mid to late 90s may be reuniting after 14 years!
According to an insider in the music industry on September 3rd, former H.O.T. members Moon Hee Jun, Kangta, Tony Ahn, Jang Woo Hyuk, and Lee Jae Won have been meeting to discuss the possibilities of returning to the stage and greeting their fans after 14 years of hiatus as they are nearing their two-decade anniversary.
Because it is difficult for five people with different schedules to meet, meetings took place in small groups.
It is said that SM Entertainment’s own Lee Soo Man is supporting the idea of a reunion as the group near their 20 years anniversary, prompting Kangta, the only remaining H.O.T. member to stay with SM Entertainment even until today, to organize this reunion.
H.O.T. made their debut in September 1996 and was one of the hottest male K-pop acts whose songs continue to be played and are loved even until today. They are depicted as the legends of K-pop’s 1st generation idols and have released hits such as “Candy,” “Happiness,” and more. Unfortunately, the group disbanded in 2001 with three of its member forming another group jtL before even they parted ways in 2003.
Currently, all five members resides in different agencies with Moon Hee Jun active both as a singer and on television, Kangta continuing activities as a singer and actor in China, Tony Ahn as a singer and music producer, Jang Woo Hyuk conducting activities as a Korean singer in China, and Lee Jae Won as an actor on the musical stage.
Keep your fingers crossed for an epic reunion in 2016!
