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.
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.
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.
