Highlight (하이라이트), formerly known as BEAST (비스트)

[still revising]

A five-member boy group formed by Cube Entertainment. They officially debuted on October 16, 2009 with the release of their first mini-album Beast Is The B2ST.

They were known as BEAST (also stylized as B2ST) debuted on October 16, 2009 with the release of their first mini-album Beast Is The B2ST under Cube Entertainment, and had promoted as 6 members with Jang HyunSeung – until he decided to leave the group on April 19, 2016 due to musical differences. When the group’s contracts expired with their label, the 5 remaining members of BEAST decided to leave the label to create their own. After a long legal dispute with Cube Entertainment, the boys were unable to claim the group’s name – thus re-branding themselves as HIGHLIGHT (one of the tracks of the group’s last album as BEAST) under their own entertainment label called Around Us.

On February 24, 2017, their agency, Around Us Entertainment, announced that they have changed their name to ‘Highlight’, which is also the title of their final album under Cube. They released their first mini-album Can You Feel It? on March 20.
