  • Léonora

    Fandom name is hotple

  • Cesia Lim

    Fandom name is Hot Place 핫플
    Sungwoon is the last member joined.
    Sungwoon was accepted coz of his dance skills, but he became the main vocal.
    As far as l know only Timoteo was in SM. That’s why he is close with Kai, Taemin and other SM artists.
    San once worked for Chanel in France.
    Hojung is called sparta coz of his no mercy training at the gym 😂
    Sungwoon and Taehyun have the same height: 167-168 cm.

  • sumi

    that is just an unofficial fandom name. I didn’t see any official announcement about the official fandom name o__O
    yes, Timoteo was a SM trainee and he’s close with Kai, Taemin and other SM artists, but isn’t Sungwoon as well close to Kai, Taemin and other SM artists?

  • Cesia Lim

    Some Hotshot fans told me that the fandom name is 핫플 and Hotshot revelead it on their V live. I haven’t watch it since no eng sub 😣
    Yes Timo was an SM trainee, but coz Sungwoon is close with SM idols as well they thought he was an SM trainee as well. In fact he only auditioned for JYP (among the big 3). And it’s interesting when JYP said he regretted letting go of Sungwoon (along with other 5 male idols auditioned for JYP) 🤗

  • 민사장

    Hojung and Timotheo participated in The Unit as a contestant

  • Iqbal Ghifari

    noh taehyun is currently promoting as jbj member and sungwoon as wanna one member.
    while timoteo and hojung participated in the unit
    and… if timoteo and hojung debut as the unit top 9 temporary group, WHEN HOTSHOT WILL BE PROMOTING TOGETHER AS HOTSHOT AGAIN?

  • Iye

    I’m afraid that HOTSHOT won’t be promoting as a group anymore until the members’ contacts with WANNA ONE, JBJ and maybe the Unit’s new group (if they’ll qualify) will end 🙁
    As far as I know WANNA ONE will be promoting together for 1 year and a half.

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    I know Sungwoon is friends with BTS Jimin, but I think he’s friends with Taemin, Kai and Ravi too.

  • Iqbal Ghifari

    yes indeed. wanna one will be promoting until december 2018 so they will promote as 6 members in upcoming 2019

  • Iqbal Ghifari

    i don’t know how they became close like that, but it’s revealed more clearly in taemin: the xtra cam episode 6 if taemin, kai, sungwoon, timoteo, jimin, kwonho (kwonho isn’t a celebrity) are very close to each other and even have matching jackets with their own logo on it

  • Savage_Y_O_N_G_G_U_K

    The fandom name is HOTPLE

  • KProfiles

    Yeah, we had this info in his Wanna One and his individual profile, but we added it here too. 🙂

  • KProfiles

    Thanks a lot for the update! 🙂

  • KProfiles

    Thanks a lot for the update and sorry for the late reply. Sometimes it’s hard to notice all the comments! XD

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t check his individual profile😅

  • KProfiles

    Thank you for explaining about Sungwoon and his JYP audition. 🙂

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    I’m pretty sure Taehyun’s and Sungwoon’s heights are wrong. I think Sungwoon is 167cm (5’6″) and Taehyun is 168cm (5’6″). I think they measured that on P101, but I’m not sure. 😅

  • Eny

    They are both 168 (5’6″)

  • KProfiles

    Thank you guys for the heads up, it’s really appreciated! 🙂

  • MarkLeeIsProbablyMySoulmate

    If you say so, but I still think Taehyun is 1 centimeter taller, cause when Hyunbin measured things on JBJ’s show (whatever it’s called, I can’t remember), he measured Taehyun, and said that he was a centimeter taller than Sungwoon. Idk if he was lying to make Taehyun feel good, or if he was telling the truth😂

  • 호비의 천사 🌸

    Sungwoon is 167, it was measured in infinity challenge

  • lia☆

    Hojong and Timoteo made it to the finals in The Unit. Hojong made it in Unit B, rank 3. Timoteo sadly didn’t make it.

  • Hannah Yin

    If someone is the face of the group, aren’t they the visual?

    Under Junhyuk’s facts you’ve spelled Timoteo wrong by putting “He was a former trainee of SM Entertainment with Timotheo.”
    Also under Taehyun’s profile you’ve wrote “His old stage name was Kid Monster but he announced on vLive that he changed his stage name to Noh Taehyun.” And it should be Roh.
