H.O.T. (Hangul: 에쵸티) was a popular five-member South Korean boy band of the mid to late 1990s. Their name is an acronym - H.O.T. standing for "High-five Of Teenagers". They were formed by SM Entertainment in 1996 and disbanded in 2001.



Often credited to be the forerunners of the "idol group" trend in the Korean music industry, H.O.T. successfully turned mainstream Korean music into music for the younger generation. Made up of five teenagers (at the time of their debut), they were formed to specifically target teenagers, hence their name "High-five Of Teenagers" (acronym H.O.T.).


Moon Hee Jun / 문희준 - Leader & Sub Vocalist

Jang Woo Hyuk / 장우혁 - Main Rapper

Tony An / 토니안 - English Rapper

Kangta / 강타 - Lead Singer

Lee Jae Won / 이재원 - Sub Rapper & Sub Vocalist

They maintained a friendly rivalry with other K-pop bands such as Young Turks Club [1], Maddie and Sechs Kies, and were close friends with Kim Hwan Sung of N.R.G., who died from pneumonia a week or two prior to his 20th birthday. Kangta, especially was heartbroken by his friend's death. When N.R.G. released their album after Kim Hwan Sung's death, Kangta wrote the main track of their album.

Disbandment and post-H.O.T.

H.O.T. disbanded in May 2001. As H.O.T. neared the end of their contracts with SM Entertainment, it was rumored that financial issues caused the group to split. Three members (An, Jang and Lee) received royalties equivalent of 1 cent for each copy of their album sold, meaning that each of them would earn roughly $10,000 for selling a million copies of their album. On the other hand, Kang Ta and Moon were rumored to be receiving more.[2]
