HITT (Korean: 히트; acronym for Here Is the Top) is a South Korean boy band, signed under Jay.K Entertainment. The group consists of four members: Juntaek, Hyunjun, Wooram and Jaehoon. They released their debut mini-album, Here Is the Top, in July 2011. In March 2012, Hayong and Howon left the group then Hayong changed his stage name into B:eta & joined the boy group Alphabat from Sim Tong entertainment.



Prior to their debut, HITT received praise from pianist Yiruma. He provided the piano melody for "한참" after being impressed by the group; it became the first time he worked with an idol group.[1] Vocal group 4Men also commended HITT for their vocal abilities.[1] In an interview with E-Daily, HITT explained the meaning behind the group's name: "Times are changing. Being vocally talented has become the norm, and no longer are performance styles and visuals the only matter of importance for idols. They say that singers live up to their names, so we want to become singers that are a 'hit'. We have to live up to that name."[2]

"Good Night" also charted on Germany's Viva Top 50 music video chart.[5] On August 3, 2011, HITT embarked on promotional tour across Asia in September.[6]
