Thursday is all about #tbt, and with that in mind I decided to go all the way back to the 90's to find the legendary k-pop boy group which started the k-pop hype, also known as the "Hallyu Wave" or the "Korean Wave". The boy band I am speaking of is non other than H.O.T.
The group consists of 5 members:
From left to right: Moon Hee Jun & Jang Woohyuk
From left to right: Tony An, Kangta & Lee Jae Won
H.O.T. stands for "High-five Of Teenagers", and the boy band is credited to being one of the first boy bands & idols in the K-pop industry. The boy band debuted in 1996 and disbanded in 2001, despite being one of the most popular music artists at the time.
Their song "Candy" is both one of their first songs, and also one of their most famous ones. Although, my personal favourite song from them is "Warrior's Descendant" ;) Their music comprises a mixture of rap, ballads, dance and later even rock.
Even though they have not been active for almost 20 years, they are still one of the first boy groups within K-pop and it is quite entertaining to watch & listen to k-pop's "roots" =) Also, it's quite fun to look at their hairstyle & just in general because it is quite different than what is concidered 'cool' today xD
Above is the music video for "Candy", and down below is the music video for "Warrior's Descendant".
