    Question the pace is hot

    Hong Kong stars work hard, and the pace is hot. Some make ten movies a year, others record four CDs as well as keeping to a tight schedule of concerts.

    What does "hot" in this context mean? I can't find a meaning in the dictionary that matches the context.

    "Feverish" would also work there.

    Re: the pace is hot

    "The pace is hot" = "the pace is rapid", correct?

    Re: the pace is hot

    I would say more than "rapid".
