About the music::
They recently released their debut album 38 degrees, which includes tracks. In medical terms 38 degrees is a fever. ‘체온이 뜨거워 (Fever)’ is about being in the “we’re dating / we’re not dating” stage of a relationship. Fever has lots of different genres in it, and because of this they try to show a different concept for the song on each stage. To get a genuine feel for who Halo is they say ‘들리니 (Can you hear me)’ is a good song to listen to.

Q & A::
Q: How was you debut stage?
A: During rehearsals they were all very nervous and kept messing up. Once on stage they saw a banner the fans made. They received a lot of strength from that, and were able to complete their performance without messing up.
Q: What was your first impressions of each other?
A: Dino – Oh Woon was wearing sweatpants, stuffed into his socks, and a sleeveless t-shirt. Based on that Dino thought ‘ok he doesn’t have the look, so he must be good at singing or dancing. Otherwise here no reason for him to be here.’
Q: What country outside of Korea would you like to visit?
A: Dino – New York City, USA
In Haeng – China
Hee Chun – Europe
Yoon Dong – Japan
Jae Yong – world tour
Q: Goal for the year?
A: They want to heat up everyone with their music
