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:

    But the hot hell that always in him burns,
    Though in mid Heaven, soon ended his delight,
    And tortures him now more, the more he sees
    Of pleasure not for him ordained. Then soon
    Fierce hate he recollects, and all his thoughts
    Of mischief, gratulating, thus excites:
    John Milton (1608–1674)

    Good-night to the Season!—the dances,
    The fillings of hot little rooms,
    The glancings of rapturous glances,
    The fancyings of fancy costumes;
    The pleasures which Fashion makes duties,
    The praisings of fiddles and flutes,
    The luxury of looking at beauties,
    The tedium of talking to mutes;
    Winthrop Mackworth Praed (1802–1839)
