The over two hours of running time saw the band traveling back in time by dancing to its old hits such as “Warrior’s Descent,” “I Yah!” “Candy” and “We Are the Future.”

“Infinite Challenge” cast members also performed onstage a cover of “We Are the Future.”

At the end of the concert, Lee Jae won said to fans, “I’m sorry for coming so late. Let’s keep this memory until we meet each other again.”

Jang Woo-hyuk also created excitement among fans by saying, “I’ll seriously consider revamping H.O.T. activities.”

The megahit band debuted in 1996 and quickly rose to stardom, attracting fans of all ages before it disbanded in 2001.
