HIGHLIGHT (formerly known as BEAST or B2ST) first made their debut under Cube Entertainment back in October 16, 2009. Although they lost a member, created their own label, and promoted under a new name with the remaining five members, they are finally celebrating their 9th anniversary with the fans.
On their anniversary day, Kikwang, Yoseob, Dongwoon, and Junhyung went on Naver’s V Live to share an exciting news with their fans. During the broadcast, the members announced their comeback on October 29 (6pm KST) and their back to back concert at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul on November 23 and 24. This event will be their last promotion before Yoseob’s military enlistment on January 24, 2019.
HIGHLIGHT also posted an anniversary message through their official Youtube account. The group expressed their gratitude towards their fans for the undying support and for being with them all these years.
The group’s leader, Doojun, was not able to join them due to his enlistment earlier this year. The members made sure, though, that they did not forget him while they celebrated their special day. On October 16, Around Us Entertainment posted a photo on their official Instagram account showing all five members—Kikwang, Dongwoon, and Yoseob making heart signs while Junhyung is holding a photo of their leader in military uniform (who is making a heart sign as well). Isn’t it sweet?
Happy 9th Anniversary HIGHLIGHT and LIGHTs!
