H.O.T and Sechskies, the ’1st generation idols’ who were brought back to mind through the drama ‘Reply 1997‘ and swept the hearts of fan girls all across Korea during the 90s, have hinted on their possible comebacks!
H.O.T’s former leader Moon Hee Jun who recently made a comeback with new solo single “Scandal” revealed, “All of the members want to reunite. The only issue is that since all of our agencies are different, we are in a situation where we can’t move based on only our thoughts.”
He also revealed that they had previously set a comeback date in mind, but that it is currently delayed to another date. “Honestly, our comeback date was set for September 7th this year. We were discussing in detail about our comeback last year, but currently it has been delayed. We want Moon Hee Jun, Tony An, Jang Woo Hyuk, Kangta, and Lee Jae Won to reunite and show our charms as H.O.T on stage.”
Sechskies’ Kang Sung Hoon, who had been caught up in several scandals last year, also hinted on his group’s possible comeback as he commented, “I want to show the re-emergence of Sechskies to our fans. After resolving the incidents, I want to repay the faithful fans through promotional activities.”
Sechskies’ representatives clarified Kang Sung Hoon’s statement and confirmed, “It is unknown whether all six members will make a comeback. There are members who completely retired from the entertainment industry and members who honestly don’t have the desire to reunite. However, we will prepare [for a comeback] in the best direction possible to not tarnish the name of Sechskies.”
H.O.T. made their highly successful debut back in 1996 and disbanded in 2001 while rival Sechskies made their debut in 1997 and disbanded in 2000.
