5tion (Hangul오션; RROsyeon) is a South Korean boy band popular during the early 2000s. The group's name is pronounced ocean as a play on words with the Korean word for '5' being 'oh'.

History[edit]

In 2004, two members Lee Hyun & Hwang Sung-hwan (John) spun off into a project group called 'After Rain'.[1]

In mid-2010, Hwang Sung-hwan (John) departed and formed 2nise with Hohyeon & Jogeun.[2]

Later in September 2010, 5tion made a comeback as a three-member group consisting of Hwang Sung-hwan (John), Lee Hyun & Woo Il.[3]

In March 2012, the group made another comeback with a new member roster and stage names, reuniting three original members (Oh Byung-jin, Lee Hyun & Son Il-kwon) with two new members (LEN & Boseok). Wanting to reach out to the international fanbase, member names were changed to be more foreign sounding. Oh Byung-jin would be known as 'Cain', Son Il-kwon would be 'Roy' and Lee Hyun was shortened to 'Hyun'. Originally a ballad group, the return saw a change to dance music.[4][5]

On January 15, 2017, the group was involved in a car crash while performing in Japan. This occurred when the van slid on an icy road and into a delivery truck; they were immediately rushed to the hospital, and none of the group members were later reported to have had any serious injuries.[6]
