Around Us Entertainment, which is HIGHLIGHT’s label, denied the rumors of YoSeob’s romance with Shin GoEun on May 16. They said, “The scandal between YoSeob and Shin GoEun is utterly without foundation. Both of them are just workmates since who met during a musical.”
Before the official announcement from Around Us Entertainment, one media reported that Yang YoSeob is dating Shin GoEun. According to this media’s report, they became lovers after being noona-dongsaeng relationship.
However, the truth is that they just have shared a friendly friendship with each other. From 7th of February to 5th of March, they solidified their friendship by keeping in touch with each other in order to perform the musical “The Days”.

The former members of BEAST, Yoon DuJun, Yang YoSeob, Yong JungHyung, Lee KiKwang and Son DongWoon re-debuted in a new group, Highlight, despite the worried voices raised until the very point of their debut.
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.
This week, we saw the return of one of the greatest idols alive who will definitely go down as a legend. Yong JunHyung has caught the eyes of many ever since his debut as BEAST in 2009. After over dedicating half of his life to music, he’s just returned with a brand new solo album, “Wonder If”.
Let me tell you in a series of photos of the endless accomplishments by our idol and why we’re so in love!

Just take a look at this man of a being and you’ll be hooked from the start. Yong JunHyung’s visuals might not stand out among his other group members, because literally every HIGHLIGHT member is visual.
But just take a closer look, and I’m sure you’ll find a smile on your face by the end of the day.

So what does this great looking visual do?
For one, he’s the genius producer behind one of the K-Pop greats – HIGHLIGHT (aka BEAST). Thanks to his treasure trove of creativity, that he calls his mind, HIGHLIGHT has won shelf after shelves full of trophies and awards.
But you can’t get on JunHyung’s level just by being a great producer. He’s a superb performer as he is a producer. He’s got the moves, he’s got the skills, and he’s definitely got the looks!
Did we mention that he also produces his own solo music?
Yong JunHyung of HIGHLIGHT is great, but Yong JunHyung as a solo rapper is even better! He’s recently comeback with his latest solo album called “Wonder If”, and it features the lovely vocals of Heize.
One of his signature looks is his extensive list of unique tattoos. He prefers to have small tattoos with big meanings than a sleeve full of decorations. Each of his tattoos has a meaning behind his life’s accomplishments, and they’re also so creatively inspirational.
Back in 2011, JunHyun was caught in his first and only love scandal. He was caught by Dispatch enjoying a couple night dates with the beautiful Koo Hara of former KARA! The two hot idols confirmed their romantic relationship, but it was a shame that it didn’t last forever.
These days, our genius producer is hooked on many things – and small, precious children are one of them!
Just look at the fondness and love flowing out of JunHyun’s eyes when he finds a cute little baby at HIGHLIGHT’s fan meeting. If only he can look at us like that, eh?
For now, I’ll settle fondly looking at JunHyung’s adorable aegyo… that’s right! Our fearless rapper is cute as a button when he’s got his aegyo game on.
Seriously. With everything he’s accomplished combined with his endless charms – I’m totally fangirling over here!
Lee KiKwang of Highlightis famous for his love for sneakers.
However, there was another point he thinks is important that completes the fashion.
It was his HAIR STYLE, especially his hair color.
