H.O.T Flashback Friday
Updated: Jul 5, 2020
Our song today comes from first generation group H.O.T (High-five Of Teenagers). They brought “Candy” to the music show stage in the end of 1996 and early 1997. H.O.T. set many trends in fashion (like MC Hammer did with his pants in 1990) with their puffy coats, sport wear, or as we see here, baggy pants and long jackets. They became a model for many K-groups that followed them. Moon Hee-joon, Jang Woo-hyuk, Tony An, Kangta, and Lee Jae-won set brought international attention to kpop when they were nominated for an award at the 1998 MTV Music Video Award. With their success came the rise of the Kpop fan culture we know today.
