We will become a Highlight that will be your’s and our lives’ highlight.” Son Dongwoon commented, “I still remember feeling excited when our smile logo first came out, and our fans were guessing as to what it could be.”
Yong Junhyung replied wittily, “The highlight keeps getting renewed. I’ll tell you all when there isn’t a new one. We’re the highlight.” Yang Yoseob revealed, “When we had our first solo concert ‘Can You Feel It,’ during our opening, our Lights [fan club name] were so pretty. They were prettier than when they were Beauties [BEAST’s fan club name].” Lee Gikwang answered, “It was during the Incheon Hallyu concert. I still remember the comment, ‘It’s a place to see Highlight and Lights dating.'”
The group also stated, “We had a lot of memories while promoting as BEAST, and when we were YoonYongYangLeeSon as well. We’ve shared a lot of memories together. It’s a really meaningful day.”
