5 Things You Didn’t Know About HOTSHOT and Why They Disbanded

Hotshot is a K-Pop baned which was formed under the management of Star Crew Entertainment and debuted as a six-boy band in 2014. Their energy, commitment, talent, and insanely good looks soon earned them millions of fans all over the world. To increase their fan base and followership, members of the group have participated in several competitions outside the group. This might have affected their output as a group as they are yet to release any song as a group in 2019. This has led to several speculations about their disbandment. But have they really disbanded? Find out below.

Five Things You Probably Didn’t Know About HOTSHOT

3. Did You Know About Their Group Accident?

A few months after their debut, they were on the MBC’s Show! Music Core to perform. After their performance, they had a fan signing scheduled at IIsan but had to cancel as they were involved in a minor car accident. It was later reported that the group members were fine as their injuries were all minor.

4. All About Their Awards and Recognitions

Although the group is yet to win any major award since their debut in 2014, several of their Extended Plays and singles have peaked well on various charts. Their 3 EPS Charted at #11, #13 and #10 respectively. Moreover, several of their fans believe that they are highly underrated despite being very talented and blame their management for not promoting them more.

5. Are HotShot Members Opting For Solo Careers?

While we are waiting to hear from Hotshot as a group, some of their members have used the opportunity to push their personal brand and begin their solo careers. Sungwoon debuted as a solo artist in February 2019 with the song “Bird”. Timoteo has also appeared on several television shows and has done some collaborations.

Find Out Why HotShot Disbanded

The last time Hotshot released any song was in November 2018. It appears that the group is presently on a hiatus as there is no official statement either from the group or management about the dissolution of the group

In 2017, Sungwoon and Taehyun participated in Produce 101 Season 2. While Taehyun ranked 25th and was eliminated, Sungwoon ranked 11th and became a part of a temporary boy group Wanna One. According to the contract they had with his company, he promoted with the Wanna One until the end of 2018 after which he returned to HotShot.

Taehyun on the other hand later joined the fan-created group of Produce 101 Season 2. He promoted with them for 7 months (between October 2017 to April 2018) before returning to the group.

Hojung and Timoteo also participated in the TV series The Unit which ended with Hojung coming 3rd and Timoteo 10th. Hojung then became a member of UNB and was scheduled to promote with them between 7 to 25 months depending on how successful the group turns out.

With the amount of self investments the majority of the members have had to put in to gain popularity for their group, it’s doubtful if the group will disband any time soon. The downside to all these activities outside the group is that they don’t get enough time to work together as a group. Fans are still optimistic though that they might come back with a bang!
