A new Chinese boyband for the count: Hit-5

There’s a tons of news each day, and I’m pretty backlogged, so I though I should point this out as a quick-mini-update, in lieu of an actual update. Another Chinese boyband in addition to the rest of the ones popping out. Will the madness ever stop?

Hit-5 “Hit” MV

That’s three that I know now, who are debuting/waiting to debut.

Edit on 10/25. I added profiles. For some reason, despite my love for the superboys, and TopCombine’s association with them, I want Hit-5 to succeed more. It doesn’t seem as Korean influenced.

Beijing’s Idol Factory Entertainment, used two years to creat HIT-5, which already officially made a debut on October 20. Duan Huangwei, Gao Yu, Yang Fan, Dong Yufeng, and Guo Zi will create new music in mainland’s music scene.


Duan Huangwei/Gold

A very open and warm singer. He is partial to R&B and likes British R& B singer Craig David.

Gao Yu/Fire
Gao Yu is the lead dancer on the team. His physique allows for quick movements. He’s very energetic and often likes jumping for joy. Gao Yu deeply loves dance, and likes listening to dance music. On stage you can certainly feel his passion when Gao Yu uses all his energy.

Ze Meidao (Real name Yang Fan)/Water

Born Jan 26, 1990

I don’t know much about this one, but he looks like Eddie Peng, which is a very good thing. He’s apparently the pretty boy of the group…I guess even more so than the others.

Dong Yufeng/Wood

Dong Yufeng is in team’s baby, the most lovable. Dong Yufeng is the indispensable one on the team who balances everyone and is simple in his happiness, giving everyone a warm feeling.

Guo Ziyu/Earth

The Leader of the group. Guo Ziyu is the rapper and oldest of the group. He’s also the calmest. The members believe Guo Ziyu will lead the HIT-5 to achieve great things.

Edit:

Oh and this is a Zhong Guo Feng (Chinese Style) Man Hua comic version of them according to their baidu. Doesn’t look like them at all, but I thought it was such a beautiful drawing and Chinese hanfu are Gorgeous.

  1. i completely agree with “yelei.” i’m chinese but grew up in canada. however i have always feel attach to chinese music. but china doesnt have much bands…they are mostly solos… so i’m been fans of taiwanese and korean bands… as much of the girls… however i truly see potential in this band… so far… they have showed they have singing and dancing skills and of course the “look”

  2. I like H.I.T-5 so much. They r handsome lahh. 55+
    So , i know Afan. He’s nice na. I mean habits of him.
    Anyway i’ll luv they. Lolzzz :))*

  3. Hit5- doesn’t sing all that well maybe except that one guy…David? or something with a D..lol
    Top combine- No doubt Zhang Yuan’s voice is the best amongst the grp
    Also the guy that raps in TC cannot rap live…it was awful O.o

    Nontheless I think BOBO is the best, both members have great voices and they’re original =)

  4. not necessarily! they sing really well but yeah the voice is pretty much the same. The Top COMBINe too, I heard their cotton candy, I couldn’t even tell who’s who, maybe because it was on IPod and not music video. the dance is good too. but I do agree they need training because you know, there’s always room for improvement. Gao is so freaking good at dancing though.

  5. H.I.T probably the best looking group in asia
    but needs more training…their singing and dancing is not that great..
    true they all have the same pitch haha

  6. Hit-5 haven’t really done much after Happy Camp. They went on a couple of internet and radio talk shows and that’s pretty much it. However, there are rumors about HIT-5 starring in a new idol comedy from Hunan TV. The drama’s definitely real since one of Hunan’s scriptwriters have been writing about it. However, it seems unlike that Hunan would give the job to HIT-5 when they can give it to their own Top Combine. But then, Hunan did give lots of air time over to SJM. And it might want other stars to join to lose its Super Family-base camp image.

    I don’t know an other English sites, but if you find one, please tell me. For Chinese sites, their baidu tieba:

  7. do you guys know any good website of hit 5 besides this one. This is like the only website that actually has some info about hit 5. I really want to get to know them but there’s like no information that I can find.

  8. nope. they’re completely different. I don’t know much about A- One though but each member is suppose to represent some bug/insect. it’s kinda weird.

  9. I know, ppl are saying how they’re copying the korean boyband, it’s so annoying. but they got yelled at by hit 5 fans and got scared away. lol…

  10. I’m kinda enjoying this raise in Chinese boybands; mainly because the Korean/Taiwanese music industry has dominated in China. I think that with time, and more training HIT-5 will probably make it big.

  11. Yes, I think people need to be rational about this, I could see trolls on youtube commenting on these guys and the other chinese band, guess they fear that the chinese will start loving their homegrown bands instead of listening to the foreign ones..lol.
