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".

A black cloud full of storms too hot for keeping,
A sword beneath his mothers heart yet never
Woman bewept her babe as this is weeping.”
