This was the song that helped start it all.
The K-Pop rave. The fandoms. And the craziness that came it.

[Sunday Serenade: Reply 1997] H.O.T – A Warrior’s Descendant

H.O.T made its debut in September of 1996 under SM Entertainment with A Warrior’s Descendant in its first album We Hate All Kinds of Violence.

In episode one of Reply 1997, this is the song that Si Won is wildly dancing to at the H.O.T performance, while wearing her official Club H.O.T raincoat gear.

A Warrior’s Descendant was written by Yoo Young Jin, the brain behind a good majority of the hits from SM artists.

During a time when school violence was especially bad in the 1990s, it’s said that Yoo Young Jin was inspired to write this song after hearing about a group of school bullies who severely injured the fingers of a student, destroying his dreams of becoming a violinist.

The song was created to bring the seriousness of school violence into light and address the problem.

Who are you to hit me? Why are you doing this? Who are you?
I want to escape those who try to choke the weak
They stepped on me.
They even took away my one dream
