Former BEAST members, Doojoon, Junhyung, Yoseob, Kikwang, and Dongwoon, will be promoting as Highlight through Around Us Entertainment.
Take a look at the statement released from Around Us Entertainment:
Around Us, home of Doojoon, Yoseob, Kikwang, Dongwoon, and Junhyung, would like to inform everyone that the group that was formerly known as BEAST will now be known as Highlight.Highlight, which means ‘the brightest thing’ or ‘the most prominent and interesting’ was also the first album that BEAST released as these 5 members. At that time, the group worked hard with a new start as 5 members, and are now looking to make a new fresh start with Around Us.We would like to thank all the fans who have been waiting for us for a long time as we tried to decide on a new name, Highlight, and for supporting and showing interest in our artists. Also, even though we can not continue to use their former name [BEAST], we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Hong Seung Sung, who has helped a lot in bringing the members to us, and for helping create Highlight.Whatever their new beginning is, it will always come with nerves and carefulness. It’s been 9 years since the members debuted and they are now starting anew. We are in this situation because we refuse to give up and we wanted to pursue what we love. We will work hard to be able to stand in front of the public once again, and meet our fans who have been waiting so long.We hope that the people who read this will love the 5 members of Highlight even more. We also hope that the fans will be able to freely call them by their new group name Highlight. We will work harder to become a better company that shows off our artist’s passions and abilities. The 5 members of Highlight will stick together, and we would like all your support and love so Highlight can continue to be strong.
