On March 16, Cube Entertainment co-founder and former chairman Hong Seung Sung revealed the new girl group’s name and logo to debut under S2 Entertainment.
The name of the group is HOT ISSUE, where each letter of the “HOT” stands for “Honest,” “Outstanding,” and Terrific.
The group released a teaser on their new YouTube channel with their logo, which seems to showcase an “H” and “S” but also the use of question marks to connect the letters.
In a statement from S2 Entertainment, they stated, “HOT ISSUE is focused on their preparations with the goal of making their official debut in April. Please be on the lookout for HOT ISSUE, who’ll lead the globalization of K-pop with their unique charms.”
