Their new track ‘Plz Don’t Be Sad’ is not coming down easily from the chart until now although new tracks are pouring each day.
After BEAST was disbanded and they planned to debut again as Highlight without Jang HyunSeung, a lot of people doubted their success, because they were going to change their name as well as members included.

However, the “Wholeness” did not seem to matter so much. There were much more important factors that mattered, such as the music, and how the members feel and act about their work.

Highlight was able to release an awesome track that showed their ability as a musician and a producer as well. Also, they showed great participation in variety shows as well as music programs. Also, they feel grateful especially to their fans for waiting patiently and believing in them. Fans fell in love with them even more for remaining positive, modest, honest and grateful.

There are some groups such as SHINHWA and Sech Kies who continued their legacy by keeping their names and member from the long past.

Those groups were able to do so because their past entertainment, as well as their current entertainment allowed them to do so. However, not all enterprise agree with signing contracts with other companies with previous group names.

There are stocks, and other complicated fiscal matters related to the names of groups, so, like CUBE, they may not allow musicians to continue performing by the former name.

Anyways, despite all the struggles and controversies, Highlight is doing fine with their music and teamwork. They will further act as a role model for other idol groups, for being a successful pioneer.

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!
