HIGHLIGHT’s “CAN YOU FEEL IT?” Showcase

Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.

 

1. CAN YOU FEEL THE FASHION?

The five pre-BEAST/now-HIGHLIGHT boys came out onto the stage dressed to impress. Each member was dressed according to their signature style and personality – a much needed change from the recent rookie pattern of wearing the same outfits!

2. CAN YOU FEEL THE MEMBERS?

The night continued onto a photo session. Each of the members came out onto the stage one by one for the array of flashes. It was so darn funny that each of the members had their very own posing style that literally screamed out what kind of person they were. DuJun was the confident leader, JunHyung was the mysterious artist, YoSeob was the cutie pie, KiKwang was the vibrant easy-goer, and DongWoon was the hilarious PR-maknae.

3. CAN YOU FEEL THE ROOKIE FEEL?

BEAST hadn’t held showcases since their debut days. Considering that it was about 9 years ago, the boys were awkward when it came time to pose together as a team in their ‘distinct team pose’. The boys were awkward and unsure as they did their best to play their rookie roles. The boys started with a confident fist up, then continued to the most awkward and confusing effort to be a cute and refreshing rookie. We think they pulled it off, no probs! 😛

4. CAN YOU FEEL THE BROTHERHOOD LOVE?

During the photo time, the two joksters at the far right couldn’t help themselves. KiKwang and DongWoon continually fooled around quietly at their corner. They’d make the cutest faces together, whisper jokes to one another, dance together and just love all around. The chemistry between the main dancer and the old-maknae helped lighten up the mood.

5. CAN YOU FEEL THE MAKNAE?

The 1st mini-album showcase was definitely a maknae-on-top kind of night. DongWoon had the most playful energy tonight as he danced to their highlight medley, and was even kind enough to demonstrate their new point dance. Although all four of his older brother were a little embarrassed by him, all eyes were on DongWoon to see what this silly maknae was up to next!

6. CAN YOU FEEL THE HIGHLIGHT?

The group re-debuted with a new name. BEAST is now HIGHLIGHT. When asked what inspired their new name, DongWoon revealed that he recalled the fact that their last album as BEAST was titled “HIGHLIGHT”. He wanted to connect their two eras together, and show that they will forever stand brightly for their fans. YoSeob also revealed that he initially wanted to be named “With Us” – a play on their label name “Around Us”. But his suggestion was quickly shot down by his brothers for being too familiar to the convenience store called With Me.

7. CAN YOU FEEL THE GOOD LIFE?

With their new found freedom in management, the boys also found freedom in their own music color. For their 1st mini-album, the boys gathered together to discuss what kind of music they wished to portray as HIGHLIGHT, and left the complete album producing to Yong JunHyung‘s producing team, GOOD LIFE. All five members contributed to the album, but JunHyung revealed that he tried his best to stay within the lines of the group’s wish to be more colorful and bright.

8.  CAN YOU FEEL CUBE?

With such a hard legal fight, HIGHLIGHT couldn’t dodge the question regarding their old label – Cube Entertainment. DongWoon clarified that although the discussions were long, and some things didn’t work out at the end, the relationship between the group and Cube are still solid. The boys expressed that they will always thank Cube for allowing them to come this far, and that Papa Hong told the boys to come to him for help whenever they needed anything!

9. CAN YOU FEEL A FUTURE BEAST?

The legal documents state that sometime in the future, the name BEAST will be open for the group to promote with. When asked DuJun what the group’s thoughts were on the prospect of going back to BEAST, the leader responded that BEAST will remain a cherished memory. Even if the name was cleared tomorrow, the boys have decided to start anew as HIGHLIGHT. Although they could’ve waited until the name was available before promoting again, the boys didn’t want to keep their beloved fans waiting. For the sake of their fans, who were the greatest source of strength during their legal battles, HIGHLIGHT wished to relay their thanks ASAP.

10. CAN YOU FEEL IT?

HIGHLIGHT is more than ready to take over the K-Pop industry as rookie-veterans. They ended the night by thanking their fans for allowing them to get this far. Although the new beginning is scary and nerve-wrecking, HIGHLIGHT vows to continue putting out good music for endless years to come!

To celebrate their epic return, Kpopmap was invited to spend time with the boys at their “READY” showcase, which was held on March 2nd at the Hana Card V Hall in Hongdae.

VICTON’s “READY” Showcase

Brought to you by your friends at Kpopmap.

 

1. READY TO BEGIN

VICTON began their showcase with a performance of their sub-track, “Ulta”. The boys appeared in front us dressed in the chic black on black outfits. The boys completely owned the stage with their signature energetic stage manners. One of the most entertaining aspects of their performance was the cute interactions between the boys in between the lyrics. The high fives, the playful gazes, the hearts flying, and just the cute interactions are definitely a point to look forward to!

2. READY TO DANCE

SeungWoo and Heo Chan were revealed to be behind the choreography design. The two boys paired up to create the entire choreography from feel to point. When asked what was their inspiration for the routine, Chan revealed that he created the dance at a fitness gym. He recalled that he once overworked his arms with the barbell, which eventually became the dance point in the dance. If you’re wondering why their arm movements don’t look powerful for the track, you know that it’s because Chan’s arms were hurting when he created it!

3. READY TO COMEBACK

The boys just released their new album just 4 months after their official debut back in November. Their new album, “READY”, means that the boys debuted with their 1st album, but are now ready to show all that they’ve got through their new album. Although they say that they’re more than ready to showcase their all, you couldn’t help but fall in love with the boys’ nervousness. Perhaps it’s because of the high expectations put on them by the immense love that they’ve received for their debut album, the seven members were stumbling through their words and shyly smiling at their small mistakes throughout the showcase.

4. READY YOUR EYEZ EYEZ

VICTON continued their showcase with the long awaited live performance of their title track, “EYEZ EYEZ”. As teased through their comeback trailers, the boys’ choreography sync was on point! The boys were basically one body as they danced together on point at the same time and same angle. They even jumped together at the same time to the same height! Aside from their amazing KalGunMu, we definitely think you’ll love their new lyrics as they sing for you to have your eyes only on VICTON and them alone.

5. READY OUR TEAMWORK

ByungChan has been active in the variety show industry from the very beginning of their debut, and he’s been gaining a lot of love. When asked what other show he’d like to guest star on, he replied that although he’s grateful for the love he receives, he wants to showcase the VICTON teamwork. He explained that he’s very proud of his team and their chemistry. ByungChan hopes that all seven members will be able to feature on teamwork shows, such as “Running Man” and “Knowing Bros”.

6. READY FOR SCHOOL

March 2nd marked the first day of classes for schools all around Korea. VICTON’s cute maknae, SuBin, was actually supposed to go to school today, but he was unable to attend his first day, because the date coincided with their album’s release date. Best known for his friendly relationship with his school mates, SuBin gave a cute shout out to his class mates. He said, “Hey friends. I’m sorry that I couldn’t attend the first day of class. I’m working hard for our new album, but I’ll also work hard as a student.” His cute mannered shout out was absolutely loved by the crowd as he received a round of ‘aww’s.

7. READY FOR CENTER

MC Ding Dong couldn’t help but focus on the group’s main visual. SeJun was complimented for his looks since his debut, and was asked whether that has changed. SeungWoo responded that they still believe that SeJun is the best looking out of all of the seven members. So we had to ask, which expression was SeJun’s most confident look? SeungWoo shouted out that he believed SeJun’s emotionless face was his favorite, because it looked so sexy and beautiful. The group revealed that SeJun’s visual was undeniable, and that’s why he’s always placed in the center – I mean those dimples! Basically, SeJun has been, is and will be the main visual of VICTON.

8. READY FOR SUNRISE

VICTON’s last stage performance was their sub-track called ‘Sunrise’. The boys toned down their energy for the slow and heavy R&B track. The boys looked amazing as they crooned about the hard times that they’ve face for their bright future. The lyrics were completed written by the leader, SeungWoo, with the raps by HanSe. As expected by a Plan A artist, VICTON’s soothing vocals were above rookie-status as both of our eyes and ears were utterly focused in on the performance.

9. READY FOR FANS’ LOVE

Just after a hundred days since their debut, the boys have created their official fandom name! The name was revealed as ALICE, and we had to ask why they chose the name. The boys revealed that they chose the name ALICE, because it stands for the phrase “Always We Love the Voice”. Since their name VICTON stands for “VOICE TO THE NEW WORLD”, their fandom name means that their fans will always love the boys and their voices. Congratulations to the boys and their new fandom name, now all we need is an official fandom light stick!

10. READY FOR VICTON

To close out the night, VICTON revealed their future goals for their “READY” promotions. SeJun revealed that they hoped that they’ll be able to become closer to their fans ALICE and also reach out to people who have yet to meet them. For their long term goals, SeungSik expressed that he wished to become a group known as the group who always works hard and consistently improves with each album. To add to his older brother, SuBin added that he wanted to become a group who enjoys music.

1. A GIRL LIKE ME

Hana, SoYee, SeJeong, NaYoung, HyeYeon, HyeBin, MiMi, Sally and Mina opened up their showcase with an amazing intro and performance of their new title track, ‘A Girl Like Me’. The girls were dressed in retro black and white outfits as they strut with confidence and beauty. The lyrics asked the crowd if they’ve ever seen someone like them, and honestly – gugudan nailed their brand new concept! With narcissist like gestures, it was entertaining to search for the self-confident dance points in the new choreography.

2. A GIRL LIKE FASHIONISTAS

The girls’ new concept outfits were black and white dresses designed in retro inspirations paired with knee high socks. Each of the outfits were designed to the members’ own characteristics. Black and white can be less enthusiastic, but the girls came out with a fashion point! If you looked carefully, each of the girls had one colorful earring. From feathers to fluff, no two earrings were the same in design or color!

3. A GIRL LIKE SALLY

As the only Chinese member of the group, Sally took the mic to greet their Chinese fans in her native language. With her soft voice, she proudly greeted the fans in Chinese with the sweetest smile. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to understand what she had said, so SeJeong took the mic to translate that she was excited to be back and hoped for much interest and love… or that’s what she thought she said. Sally expressed that she was happy that she was able to improve her Korean since their last showcase.

4. A GIRL LIKE NARCISSIST

The group’s debut concept was a fairytale mermaid, and the girls have returned with a brand new concept. The girls changed from mermaids into narcissists for their new album. SeJeong revealed that they wanted to express the message of being proud of who you are. When asked which member best embodied the concept, Sally was chosen for her beauty. NaYoung said that she fell in love with Sally when they saw how beautiful she looked on the music video.

5. A GIRL LIKE MINA

Gugudan revealed that they’ve received a lot of compliments from their fans, and mostly for their improved beauty. MiMi revealed that out of all of the girls, Mina became the prettiest after successfully losing weight for their new album. Mina explained that she lost 3~4 kg for their new album. She continued to say that although they’re so grateful for all the compliments for their improved visuals, they hope to receive more compliments about their music.

6. A GIRL LIKE AN ARTIST

The girls’ new album consists of 5 new tracks, and it’s full of different genres. NaYoung revealed that their new album is perfect from day to night. ‘A Girl Like Me’ is perfect for the fun daytime, while soft ballad tracks like ‘Wish’ is perfect for the calm nights. The girls also revealed that their label senior, Ravi of VIXX, had gifted the group with a self-composed track! ‘Hate You’ is a cutesy song that perfectly fits the group’s aegyo vocals. Their leader, Hana, was asked whose vocal style fit the album the most. After much thought, the leader voted SoYee’s vocal style as her personal favorite.

7. A GIRL LIKE US

All throughout the showcase, we couldn’t help but have our mouths taped to our ears. The giggling sounds of the gugudan girls were contagious as the high pitched, bright laughter of the girls filled the hall. Bubbly maknae, HyeYeon’s giggles were especially the most adorable thing you’ve ever seen. As they were continuing the interview, you could tell that the girls were super close to each other as they laughed with their multiple inside jokes. When asked who they thought were the funniest, Sally pointed out that HyeBin was the funniest, because she had the most non-humorous jokes.

8. A GIRL LIKE NIGHT CLOUDS

To close out the night, gugudan performed their sub-track titled ‘Street’. The song was the complete opposite of their title track as the girls’ vocals were as soft as night time clouds. Through the slow tempo and soft whispers of love, we were able to listen to each of the girls’ unique vocal tones and talent. Just as the girls had mentioned, the song seems the perfect song to listen to just before you fall asleep at night.

The girls hope to become closer to their fans through this promotion by holding multiple events where they can be closer to the public. They also hope that their fans will fall in love with their new album to the point that “A Girl Like Me” becomes a popular saying.
