BEAST’s Yong Joon Hyung: "I Don’t Need a Luxury Car"


Luxury cars. The representation of a star. Regardless of age, all top stars have fancy imported cars, such as Audi’s, Mercede’s, and BMW’s.

But BEAST‘s Yong Joon Hyung is different. Although BEAST is an immensely popular idol group with a high salary, he drives around a humble domestic car, emphasizing practicality with style.

So what is the model of this “it” car? Let’s take a look.


Joon Hyung’s car is a 2010 Kia K5. It’s a domestic car that is fairly popular with a sleek design. Designed by head designer of Audi, Peter Schreyer, it has even won the “Good Design Award”.

Yong Joon Hyung uses his ride whenever he hangs out with his friends. He prefers this car to a van. When he’s having a date with girlfriend Goo Hara, this car is his go-to vehicle. Why? They have frequent “drive around” dates. (Aw, how romantic.)

When Kim Heechul and Lee Hong Gi are having a “Chocoball” gathering (a hang-out session for blood type AB celebrities), Joon Hyung again relies on this car.

It’s cool that Joon Hyung doesn’t have a Rolls Royce or Cadillac. Looking at his car, it seems that he is very down to earth and practical. Vroom vroom!
