H.O.T and Sechskies to possibly make a comeback?


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.

WE ALMOST HAD A H.O.T COMEBACK THIS YEAR? Hee Jun don't be lyin' to me, brah, don't. Don't. you have no idea how much I want this, but without Jaewon because he usually doesn't exist for me BUT H.O.T FEELS AND I KNOW SOMEONE WHO CAN GET ME TICKETS WHAT IS AIR. If you have no common agency, do a Shinhwa and make one just for yourselves. Also yay for Sechskies fans too!

Sorry Mods, got a little excited when I first submitted this.

hahhahaha as if sment would let kangta be in for a reunion
and if kangta wanted it and pushed the issue, i bet he would lose a lot of standing within the company

Didn't one of the HOT members rape someone though?
tsuyoi_hikari 17th-Jan-2013 09:47 am (UTC)
You're kidding, right? You must mistaken it without someone else. They basically clean / rumor free esp after the break-up.
anconeous 17th-Jan-2013 09:49 am (UTC)
Wasn't Jaewon implicated in some rape scandal though? That's the only thing I remember him for.
tsuyoi_hikari 17th-Jan-2013 09:54 am (UTC)
Is it? I followed them pretty closely over the years. I must missed that one -- A BIG ONE at that.

What a disappointment! DX What was he thinking? Did he was found guilty over the charge?
earthequality 17th-Jan-2013 10:29 am (UTC)
It was Jaewon. There's apost here. If you google his name, entries pop up but I wasn't able to find any of the official reports (at least in English and I'm not hitting up Naver/Daum rn). I never really paid attention to him before, but the details don't sway in his favor, regardless.
earthequality 17th-Jan-2013 10:23 am (UTC)
It was Jaewon, and I should be more clear. there's details here. Take it as you will, but I didn't care for him before and especially not after. There is shade all over this. Unfortunately, none of the official articles pop up anymore, or at least, none that I could find.

I cannot do anything right on LJ today, it seems.

damn he sounds guilty as hell
tsuyoi_hikari 17th-Jan-2013 09:46 am (UTC)
As much as I want it to happen, I doubt it tbh... :((
anconeous 17th-Jan-2013 09:48 am (UTC)
NGL, I'd love it if and when H.O.T will reunite, but until a teaser or official press release is out, I'll keep from spazzing over the rumors.

Strangely, Sechs kies' song "Couple" has been stuck in my head for the past couple of weeks and I don't even know how or why that happened.

Feel like my H.O.T. chord (I have one, I'm sure) is being yanked around.
prettyminstrel 17th-Jan-2013 12:44 pm (UTC)
ugh exactly
af_fx_tion 17th-Jan-2013 12:14 pm (UTC)
I hope the rumours actually come true this year.. It would make my year if H.O.T had a comeback. My Kangta and Heejun feels omg
prettyminstrel 17th-Jan-2013 12:43 pm (UTC)
nope nope NOPE. my fragile heart would take the denial way and say this is not gonna happen. especially for Sechskies. i would like to put hope in H.O.T but with SM still involved in this i don't think the possibility is high. also, i've heard this many times from Hee Jun before but so far zilch. and i have never heard anything about reuniting wish coming from Woo Hyuk himself? at least Kangta did expressed it once when Hyesung was guesting on his cooking show. and i don't know what happened to Jae Won or if he still wanted to be in this cuz I wouldn't really take Hee Jun's words for it.

oh my fangirl heart ;~;
zumbie_kitten 17th-Jan-2013 01:33 pm (UTC)
I wish. That would be the highlight of the year.
stargazer789 17th-Jan-2013 02:31 pm (UTC)
I thought Eun Jiwon had commented on how half of Sechskies don't even talk to each other any more, then that one guy who went mia from the military in the past too.

I would love H.O.T. but no one wants to see Jaewon and I need WooHyuk to come back with another song because his music has been fun to listen to.
akaich0u 17th-Jan-2013 03:12 pm (UTC)
Yeah idk how Sechskies would do as a complete group again but fwiw I loved J-Walk.

If they work together in this capacity again I think it'd work though.
after_12_am 17th-Jan-2013 03:49 pm (UTC)
This is one of my fave songs!
stargazer789 17th-Jan-2013 04:32 pm (UTC)
TSM. I love this song, it would be great to see them come together for something like this again.
choconoir 17th-Jan-2013 06:00 pm (UTC)
oh wow i forgot how much i loved j-walk!
song_jihyuk 18th-Jan-2013 10:46 am (UTC)
woah i never heard this song before,i love it
were they under dsp when they release this?
setsuna16 17th-Jan-2013 03:14 pm (UTC)
IF H.O.T. came back, I'd be very, very happy.
after_12_am 17th-Jan-2013 04:00 pm (UTC)
There's really no way Sechskies would ever reunite, but I like it better that way tbh.
miuratenshi 17th-Jan-2013 04:24 pm (UTC)
Heejun and Kangta have been trolling about this for like a year or two (Kangta trolls about all comebacks concerning him) so I don't want to get my hopes up for H.O.T.
b1gay4 17th-Jan-2013 05:00 pm (UTC)
if its not ses comeback then i couldnt care less
hinadori 17th-Jan-2013 05:46 pm (UTC)
Oh Sechkies, what a mess. One completely left the business and moved to North America after disbandment. One was charged with going AWOL during his military service. One has apparently been swindling money from people to cover his gambling debts. The only one left with a career is Eun JiWon. So sad, I liked them more than H.O.T back in the day.
seung_is_my_ho 18th-Jan-2013 07:23 am (UTC)
same :'( Sechskies was the best.
missnothings 17th-Jan-2013 08:05 pm (UTC)
I had no idea Sechkies only lasted 3 years. I thought they went longer than that. Were H.O.T. part of the 5 year curse? Lol.
purekpopology 18th-Jan-2013 01:07 am (UTC)
lol! 5 year curse is the first thing i thought of after seeing the dates. i know HOT is part of the 5 year curse, but then that got me thinking... SHINee's 5 year anniversary is this year! anticipating some shinee drama in 2013 now XD. Super Junior doesn't count because even though they're technically "together" a lot of the original members are gone.
gypsy_sonata 17th-Jan-2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
i should bring out my '90s Kpop magazines just to reminisce.
earthequality 18th-Jan-2013 12:20 am (UTC)
please share if you do, omg

purekpopology 18th-Jan-2013 01:02 am (UTC)
I wasn't into kpop during the HOT era, but trying to picture all of the members dancing/singing together as a group after knowing them individually is reeeeally weird lol! I'd be interested in seeing an HOT comeback though.
vicinity_love 18th-Jan-2013 01:53 am (UTC)
I'd loveeeee this to happen, but I wont keep my fingers crossed.
seung_is_my_ho 18th-Jan-2013 07:20 am (UTC)
Omona should make a Sechskies VS H.O.T poll! I wanna see how cray the comments get Ψ(`▽´)Ψ
sweet16een 18th-Jan-2013 07:37 am (UTC)
I wasn't kpop fan in the 90's
but every time I see the name Sechskies the first song that pops in my head is "Couple"

Sechskies reunion I don't see how that can happen but If it did happen i would be happy. I was big fan of Click-B and J walk.

I really hope that H.O.T. reunion really happens this year or any year.
earenya_beryl 18th-Jan-2013 10:07 am (UTC)
When the hoobaes did a performance of Sechskies, G.O.D and H.O.T songs during GDA Day 1, I was kinda sad to see barely any of the people there recognized the songs...
I would love for both groups to comeback.
