9 August:

On August 9th, a UCC video of rookie idol group HITT covering Bruno Mars‘ “Just the Way You Are” made its way online.
HITT are becoming widely-known for their outstanding vocal talents, and they were acknowledged by formidable artists like Yiruma and 4MEN. Proving that the praise wasn’t just hype, the boys showed off their a cappella skills with their very own arrangement of the song.
Although they’re just casually practicing in their training room, their talent definitely shines, which netizens took immediate notice of.

Rookie group HITT have been raking up hearts not just in Korea, but all over the world! They recently announced that they were going on a promotional tour across Asia in September, a feat that couldn’t have been accomplished without some serious work from the boys.
A dance practice video for “Good Night” has just been revealed, and through it, fans can finally take a BTS look at their dedicated attitude. The members (with their name tags attached) can be seen giving the routine their all, and it definitely gives off a great image!

HITT is certainly proving to be a ‘hit’ overseas, as they’ve just announced their first Asian tour!
Despite the fact that they’re just two months into their debut, the boys will be going on a tour through China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. Although several other rookie idols are receiving international love calls, it’s rare that they’ll act on them so early into their debut. Usually they’ll open for a senior artist’s tour to get their name out first before going on their very own.
A representative of their agency revealed that they’ll be heading out starting September. Fortunately, the boys are confident in holding a successful Asian tour, as they’ve already experienced recording 5,000 international pre-orders on top of ranking in on the German music chart, VIVA.

It’s only been a month since Sony Music unleashed their own idol group, HITT, but they’re already receiving attention overseas!
Representatives of HITT’s agency revealed, “HITT are currently promoting their debut track, ‘Good Bye‘, and they’ve been receiving love calls from music representatives in Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, and other parts of Asia. Offers have been made for the group to perform and release albums.”
The representatives continued, “We would like to first thank them for showing such great interest in HITT. Before we take them overseas, we would like to prepare as thoroughly as possible so that they can present a better image to their international fans.”
HITT’s “Good Night” is already making history by ranking in at the top 50 on Germany’s VIVA Chart.

On July 19th,  HITT’s leader, Hayong tweeted, “There was a kitty waiting for its mommy in front of our studio~ It’s pouring and the mommy still hasn’t arrived!! In the meantime we… will take care of it!”.

In the main picture, three of the group’s members are snapped cradling the kitten with a sad expression on their faces. The members have named the kitty ‘Sseubong‘ because they found the kitten by the garbage bag in front of their practice room.
Netizens commented, “So cool~“, “The kitty is so cute!“, and “I want to raise that kitty myself“.
Meanwhile, HITT – comprised of members Hayong, Juntaek, Hyunjun, Howon, Wooram, andJaehoon – are currently in the midst of promotions for “Good Night“.

24 July:
The idol industry is currently undergoing some changes, and no longer will pretty looks alone get you very far.  Older idol groups are in the midst of evolving into ‘artist groups’ while new idol group debuts all boast talents and skill sets that prove they’re ready from the get-go.

Dozens of such teams debut per month, and amongst one of them is HITT, a six-member a cappella boyband that has put their vocal talent at the forefront of their strengths.
Sitting down for an interview with E-Daily, HITT explained, “Times are changing. Being vocally talented has become the norm, and no longer are performance styles and visuals the only matter of importance for idols. They say that singers live up to their names, so we want to become singers that are a ‘hit’. We have to live up to that name.”
Their name, unfortunately, isn’t much help for new fans. Searching ‘HITT’ on portal sites will bring up results like the 2007 MBC drama ‘Hit‘ or the season’s ‘hottest hit items’.
With a laugh, leader Hayong said, “We’re still rookies so it’s alright. We trust that the results will one day be filled with information regarding us. When you search HITT in English, we get a lot of supportive comments from international fans. We already have fansites in not only Asia, but Europe and the States as well. All that’s left is Africa, haha.”

The group is known for being housed under the powerhouse label, Sony Music. Although that in itself should be a big confidence booster, their confidence stems from elsewhere.
Rapper Jaehoon said, “If you listen to our album, you’ll see that each and every song features a variety of genres. None of them overlaps. ‘I Will Always Love You‘ is a sweet medium tempo track with a cappella styles while our title track, ‘Good Night‘, is an upbeat dance track. ‘For a Long Time‘ is a song that’s nice to listen to on rainy days, as it features Yiruma senior’s piano melody.”
HITT continued, “Our name itself is our goal and wish. It’s not complete yet, but we feel that we’re able to express our thoughts through our song’s lyrics, melody, and performance. Music is ‘communication’, and we hope to earn respect as not only singers, but for other aspects of our lifestyles as well.”
As is with most idols, HITT faced some tough obstacles before they were able to reach their debut. Fortunately, it’s made their bond within the group tighter than ever. They emphasized that HITT wasn’t just a team aiming for success, but a team with a special meaning to each and every member.

Jaehoon stated, “HITT is like a bond to me. Our teamwork is strong and we work well together. Together, we can fill what the other lacks and share our best attributes.”
Juntaek continued, “There are six members so we’re able to bring our individual colors together into one team. We’re a group like a chameleon in that aspect.”
Wooram added, “I know that it’s not enough for me alone. It’s only with HITT that I can achieve my dreams, so the team is all that more special to me. A dream that we can only achieve together; we’re like life companions all headed for the same dream.”
Hyunjun said, “They’re like my family. We’re a group that can’t shine with one member missing. Whether or not I like or hate them, and through all of the obstacles and happy moments that we share together, we’re a family through and through. They’re friends that will remain with me always.”

Hayong said, “When my future seemed so bleak, HITT lit my life’s path. I don’t think we’re perfect, but I believe that we’ve just broken through the darkness of an ocean and hit the shore. It’s now time for us to run.”
Howon said, “I want HITT to be a group like ‘dead skin’. Something that keeps coming back no matter how much you scrub it off. Something that you remember again right when you’re about to forget, something that you have to go one lifetime with whether you love us or not. That’s the kind of group we want to be.”
Concluding the interview, the boys were asked about their thoughts on their new nickname, ‘greeting idols’. ”It’s an expression of our desire to work hard, but that doesn’t mean we’ll only be working hard on greeting people. We believe that there will come a day where we receive more love and live up to the potential of our name. Along with ‘greeting idols’, we hope to also earn the nickname ‘perseverance idols’. We won’t lose our rookie mindsets, but we also hope that we don’t lose our looks as well(laughter).”

Rookie idol group HITT shared a few pictures of the care package they received from their fans while on set for MTV’s ‘The Show‘.

On July 19th, the boys tweeted, “We are very thankful and will eat them gratefully with our agency members. We’ll gain strength by eating these and will work even harder.”
It’s only been 11 days since HITT made their debut, but they’re already garnering a loyal fanbase.

Rookie group HITT seems to be a hit by receiving interest overseas.

A representative from their agency stated, “HITT’s fan cafes in Japan, Germany, France, and Indonesia have been created and 5,000 copies of their album were pre-ordered.
Concerning the group’s rising popularity overseas despite their rookie status, the representative commented, “Hallyu content is currently in the spotlight overseas and HITT gained significant popularity by appearing in music programs that can be viewed overseas.
A representative from Sony Music stated, “Attention being focused on a rookie group that doesn’t have any experience and has never carried out standard activities is an unprecedented occurrence.
