B2ST BEAST Members

B2ST (BEAST) Members Profile and Facts – Yoon Do-joon, Yong Juhnyung, Yang Yoseob, Lee Gikwang and Son Dongwoon

B2ST is one of the Korean boy bands that has been around for a long time. Having debuted in 2009, B2ST has gone through a lot of ups and downs as a K-Pop group. Today, they are known as Highlight with only five of the original members composing the new band.

When they were still known as B2ST under the entertainment company Cube Entertainment, the group made a lot of albums including three Korean albums, nine mini-albums, and two Japanese albums. They also had a lot of singles which garnered worldwide attention and earned them tons of awards.

B2ST BEAST Profile

Five of the original B2ST members, composed of Yoon Do-joon, Yong Juhnyung, Yang Yoseob, Lee Gikwang, and Son Dongwoon moved to another entertainment company, namely Around Us Entartainment, to start afresh under another band name: Highlight.

Highlight made their debut this 2017 with a new mini album entitled Can You Feel It? Former member Jang Hyunseung left the original group to pursue his own solo career in 2016, triggering the cascade of events including the transfer to a new record label.

Since most fans are not yet transitioned to recognizing their favorite K-Pop band as Highlight instead of B2ST, we are going to bless you with a B2ST members profile with all the six original members. After all, we are still loyal to the original B2ST, right?
