The BEAST boys are reborn! After forming their own label, Around Us Entertainment, HIGHLIGHT renamed under their last album’s special track and just launched their new promotions. The boys held a ‘debut’ showcase at the Yes 24 Live Hall in Seoul today, and Kpopmap was there to experience the special moment of the group’s new career.

The 5 boys are standing on their two feet, as they manage their own company, produce their whole album in-house, and basically call the shots on everything that deals with their signature music sound.

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!

HIGHLIGHT just made their long awaited debut-comeback as a brand new group. They’ve shed their past of negative energy and regrouped as a group with a bright future. Although the five members had to give up the rights to their debut name BEAST, and the following songs, HIGHLIGHT returned full force after forming their very own label, Around Us Entertainment.

As we look through the past, present and future of the group, we can’t help but look forward to our man Lee KiKwang’s new role as the main dancer and lead vocalist of HIGHLIGHT!

 

My Idol Monday: Lee KiKwang of HIGHLIGHT

 

If you don’t know KiKwang, then it’s definitely questionable whether you’re a true K-Pop fan or not. KiKwang is this beautiful creature that dons the face of Adonis… maybe a baby face cutesy version.

KiKwang can certifiably say that he’s got a one-in-a-million type of face, because he was just awarded I-Magazine’s Fashion Face Award for Asian Male in the 2016. He beat out the hottest actors and artists from all over Asia to be named the face with “great proportion”.

Yeah he’s a good looking fellow, but we know him best as the main dancer and lead vocalist of HIGHLIGHT – formerly known as BEAST. Although the group legally left Cube Entertainment to set up their own company, Around Us Entertainment, the group was unsuccessful in persuading Cube to allow them to continue promoting as BEAST.

But even so, KiKwang and his brothers didn’t take no as an answer.

Let’s go back to the start of what we know as Lee KiKwang.

KiKwang initially debuted as AJ, a soloist under Cube Entertainment. His debut song was titled “Dancing Shoes”, where his now-members acted as back up dancers for the idol. Although he saw decent success, he ultimately decided to join the guy to debut as BEAST.

 

 

He may have been just a boy back during the AJ-era, but KiKwang is a full grown beast today. He’s best known for having one of the sickest bods in all of K-Pop. I meant look at all that rippling muscle and alpha-male aura!

And KiKwang worked hard for that money. He’s a huge exercise enthusiast who “NEVER STOP”s and continues to pursue a healthy lifestyle.

His favorite exercise of all?

Kicking the soccer ball around with his FC Men brothers. FC Men is a celebrity soccer team that was founded by JYJ’s Kim JunSu. Along with famous members, such as YoSeob, DuJun, INFINITE’s WooHyun, SHINee’s MinHo and more, KiKwang lives for the moments on the field.

He’s got the body and the aura of an alpha-male, but as soon as KiKwang turns on his smile – he’s just a baby puppy. His famous eye-smile is beloved by fans all over the world. His big eyes disappear into two downward lines as they create the most adorable puppy-like smile. And he’s got the cutest aegyo to boot!

Aegyo off-stage, full blown charisma on-stage. Could we have asked for a better idol to stan our lives for?

If you’re gonna try to win your way into this man’s heart. You’re going to need two things: dancing and shoes. (Literally his debut song). He lives to dance on stage – not just his BEAST/HIGHLIGHT songs either – and collect the most beautiful, exclusive shoes in the world.

 

 

You’re just as hooked as I am, aren’t you?!

Don’t fret. Get more of your KiKwang fixes by following him on his Instagram. He’s even done a couple Instagram Live session, where you can connect with him at real time!

 

 

Congratulations on your long awaited debut comeback return, KiKwang!
