H.O.T.

H.O.T. (Hangul: 에쵸티) was a popular five-member South Korean boy band in the mid to late 1990s. They were formed by SM Entertainment in 1996 and disbanded in 2001.

Often credited as 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".

Famous quotes containing the word hot:

    We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it—and stop there; lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove-lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove-lid again—and that is well; but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)

    Sir Toby Belch. Dost thou think because thou art virtuous there shall be no more cakes and ale?
    Feste. Yes, by Saint Anne, and ginger shall be hot i’the mouth, too.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
