Group Highlight, formerly known as BEAST, held a showcase to commemorate the release of its first mini-album under its new name ‘Can You Feel It’ on March 20in Gwangjin-gu’s Yes Hall, in Seoul.
Yoon Doojoon said, ‘’It escalated pretty quickly. We wanted to preserve that name with which we had spent so much time but negotiations with our previous agency didn’t work out. We did what we could and we thought that we were only wasting more time without fans so we decided to start with a new name.’’
To which Yong Joonhyung added with a smile, ‘’Of course we want to add that we’re not resentful at all. We want peace. Especially since today’s International Happiness Day.’’
Meanwhile, Highlight released its first mini-album on March 20 and kicked off promotion.
