During their press conference to celebrate the release of their new mini album “Celebrate,” as well as the group’s eighth anniversary, the members of Highlight talked about their secrets to being a long-lasting group.
Yang Yoseob began the conversation by saying that he believes that it’s important to put the team before yourself. He said, “I really connected with a statement ‘No one is bigger than the team,’ I think someone in the German national soccer team said this. That statement doesn’t just apply to soccer, it can work for any sport or even idol groups as well.”
He continued to add, “If you are a member of a team, your love for your team will naturally grow if you always have the mindset of putting the team before yourself. I think that’s the secret to being a long-lasting group.”
The idol concluded with, “We’ve been together for eight years, but we have so many more years left together. We keep learning more and more about how to work as a team as the years go by, so we’ll probably have more to share the next time we get asked this question.”
Yoon Doojoon also stated, “We want to sing for a long time, as long as we can, really. We have such great seniors who have been singing for a long time and have paved such a great road for us to walk down, so we hope to be a group that improves upon that road and makes it even better for our juniors.”
Highlight made their return on October 16 with their second mini album “Celebrate.” Check out the music video for their title track “Can Be Better”!
