New Obsession: Candy by H.O.T and a brief "Meet H.O.T"

Candy by H.O.T






By the way... My next blog is on Eusha Eusha by Shinhwa which is about the equivalent to this song..
If you have never seen them, heard of this song, or ever even heard of them.. Your life has not been complete, my friends...
So I give to you... The music video.

"Candy" by H.O.T

"Candy" is still the most epic song in the world. This song is completely infamous.. Just like "Cha Cha Slide" by DJ Casper,  "YMCA" by Village People, "Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer, "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice, "Buttermilk Biscuits" or "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix A Lot, EVERY SINGLE SONG FROM THE MOVIE "Grease", "Thriller" or "Beat It" by THE Michael Jackson. (Michael Jackson is just not right if you don't add "the".. Because just himself is an infamous man. We miss you, MJ) Or any other song that EVERYONE knows.. No matter what age you are.. That's "Candy".. It's just an overall fun song. So since I'm doing a blog on Candy by H.O.T, I feel I should go ahead and explain who H.O.T is, since if I did a "Meet H.O.T" blog I'd get spammed saying that they aren't together anymore.. Haha. 
But before I get into that.. Let me show you some videos of other idols doing "Candy".

H.O.T:









If you couldn't already tell... H.O.T was one of the first generation kpop idols in Korea. Back in the 90's. They rose to fame along with Shinhwa and Sechs Kies. Their biggest rivals were Sechs Kies. They were formed by SM Entertainment. "H.O.T" means High-five Of Teenagers.. The first 4 members to get picked to be in H.O.T were Kangta, Moon Hee Joon, Lee Jae Won, and Woo Hyuk.  SM then traveled to LA to recruit more people. There they found Tony An and Andy Lee. They were then added to the group. But Andy's parents disapproved because they said he was too young, which caused him to leave the group. And later Andy joined Shinhwa. (Thank goodness... lol) H.O.T has been a major influence in Kpop idols ever since they debuted. They got major success in their years together. With their first album "We Hate All Kinds of Violence" they had lawsuits put against them for plagiarism. Despite all the lawsuits, they still continued with their career. And I'm glad they did, honestly.. Because if they hadn't.. They never would have made "Candy". "Candy" was their first hit song... That's what they are mainly known for. They eventually broke up in November of 2001. They official reason was never released... 

Members:

Hee Joon

Then:


Now:

So this is Moon Hee Joon, he was born on March 14, 1978, in Seoul, South Korea, which makes him 34, I believe. He was the leader of H.O.T. A few years after the group split he left SM Entertainment and made his own company called "PS Entertainment".  He went to the military later in 2005. He completed his military duties in 2011. He is now with the company SidusHQ. There's not really much to say about Hee Joon... Huge fans of him could probably say alot more than I could. lol I wasn't a huge fan of Hee Joon...
Ranking: 4th


Woohyuk

Then:





Now:


Woahhhh say whaaaaat? Dude is FINEEEEE! There are some people who look much better with age, and he is definitely one of them... Well this is Jang Woo Hyuk. He was born on May 8, 1978, which makes him 34, too. He was one of H.O.T's rappers and dancers. Since H.O.T split up, he has been a solo artist.. 
Ranking: 3rd


Tony

Then:








Now:





Oh my Tony!!!! :DDDDD That right there should give away who my favorite is. LOL.. Well anyways this is An Seung Ho or Tony An. He was born on June 7, 1978. This makes him 34. I still believe he's not too old for me. :D HAHA! Now Tony has always been very cute, but just like Woo Hyuk I think he might have gotten more adorable with age.. Because now he is just absolutely adorable. Hehe(: After leaving SM Entertainment, just like the rest did, he created his own company called "TN Entertainment" name's weren't really complex back then, huh? He finished his military duty in September of 2010. And released a new single. After that he became a Teacher/Host/MC on "Oh! My School" (100 out of 100) which was like my favorite show... They just had to cancel it.. Depressing... Depressing... He's MC'd many things, I know... I just don't know all of them. And that would take up like 5 pages trying to describe all of them. Haha. He's a successful solo artist. In 2011, he released an album named "TopStar" which btw is a really great song.. I haven't heard any of the other songs on the album besides "Top Star".. And the dance he showed for it on "Oh My School" was absolutely adorable. 
Ranking: 1st. Definitely. Yup. Yup.

Kangta

Then:









Now:



Kangta... I can't tell if he looked better then or now.. Cuteness wise, he looked better back then, but sexy wise he looks better now. Idk he looks good either way.. So this is Ahn Chil Hyun, otherwise know as Kangta... (I really wonder where they get their stage names from) He was born on October 10, 1979, which makes him 33. He is an extremely talented songwriter and singer. He was the lead singer for H.O.T. After H.O.T's break up, he was the first to release a solo album, and was very successful. He's acted in many dramas, but mainly Chinese ones.. Weird... He enlisted in the army in April of 2008. He finished in 2010. I just did math.. HA. During his time in the military, he starred in a military musical. He has fun with his duties, I guess. Since then he has made a few solo albums. Kangta was part of "S" which had Shin Hye Sung from Shinhwa in it as well as Lee Ji Hoon. Kangta also was in "Kangta and Vanness" where him and Vanness Wu of F4 from Taiwan collaborated. 
Ranking: 2nd.

Jae Won

Then:




Now:




Another that looks better now that he's older. This is Lee Jae Won. He is the maknae of the group born on April 5, 1980, which makes him 32. He was a rapper and dancer for H.O.T. Jae Won also left SM Entertainment, and in 2005 released his first solo album "No Pain, No Gain" He finished his military duties in 2011. 
Ranking: 5th.


JTL

JTL was the group of leftover H.O.T members who did not stay with SM Entertainment. It's members were Jang Woo Hyuk, Tony An, and Lee Jae Won. They debuted in 2001. In 2003 they won the favorite artist of Korea at the MTV Asia Awards.
