Highlight’s Outro

Their farewell concert, their Goodbye before the 4 of them enlist one by one was this last weekend,in Seoul. I was in Manila.

I still feel bad I wasn’t personally there to bid them farewell and tell them I will wait. But I also know,they won’t like it if they knew that I will be legally liable if I travelled to their concert without proper travel clearance given that I am currently a government employee.

Prioritizing and knowing when to do crazy fan girl stunts. Being a fan in a right way is so much more important, as Yoseob our Fairy and Vocal King always remind Lights. Treat and think of them as friends and as hobbies and our entire lives.

My ultimate love Leeki cried during Sunday’s concert,only the 2nd time on an official event in his entire career. The last time was when they first won in a music show with Shock in 25 March 2010 from MCountdown. Exhibit A: https://youtu.be/ea-PVDUSVDI and it truly broke my heart and the freaking dam of tears unlike when the others were crying.

Like the last 9 years with them,the weekend concert was one heck of a roller coaster ride – laughing one minute from seeing their pre debut,debut pictures, hearing their first impressions to crying from suddenly hearing Doo Joon’s voice and having my heart thumping like crazy and slightly mad because they decided to sing while holding onto a pole with a wrist strap and foot strap, no harnesses.

But what remains most is that,
I will terribly miss them but I will surely be there At that Place,in time to welcome them with open arms to usher their,our Intro

    *hugs mary* I hope you and leeki both feel better after Sunday. @natzillagorilla too.

    So I werent the only person worried to see them hanging onto a pole by a wrist strap! Like, who gave the approval for them to do this? Oh right, they are the CEOs.

      I kept thinking about them falling and injuring themselves and the fans. Then on Sunday I kept being worried about Dongni’s injured hand and what would happen if he couldn’t hold on tight….
      I swear, these CEOs need nannies sometimes!

    Instead of saying these painful words
    that seems like about to burst
    So that your heart is in peace
    I will smile”
    OR

            Delphy,I will ONLY listen to iton Monday 5PM,and will wait until I’m all comfy in my room,with some cookies and cream,before I check the MV (if we have one) and translates lyrics.

            Natz (@natzillagorilla) fair warning, I hope you won’t be surprised with my sudden spam messages..though we randomly do that,already.

            We will survive this,girls..we have to “see them there,at THAT place!”

      This is so gorgeous and HD! 😍
      I saw a group of korean fans being first in line at the sg fanmeet and thought they could be the HL noonas & other fans who regularly post photos of them. Really admire their dedication…

        Aside from HLNunas,each of the member have at least 1 or 2 fansites always there. Gikwang’s GKistheOne fansite is ALWAYS there for all of his official schedules, even just for filming variety. Not sure for the others,though.

          Heyjoker and yangkiss were at the fanmeet too. At first i thought heyjoker was a group of people because she’s ALWAYS there, but it seems like she’s only one person. 😅

    Kamsahimnida! He did say “healthy and happy!” I wasn’t just imagining it! I wish I could write him a bit. I was military too, so I really empathize with his training. I had a few bruises after my 4 week officer training, and my whole body was so sore that I limped everywhere I went, so much so that there were people in my flight that never saw me walk normally and thought that was my normal gait! And that’s where I met my husband so I can’t really complain! Fighting Doojoonie!

Countdown to the 9th Year

I’ve lost words, and I hope Beanies won’t hate me for spamming them with my thoughts about you and Highlight.

But some will always remain, I am very very proud of you and Highlight. I will always wish and pray for your continued happiness. Thank you for bringing sunshine in my life.

From your solo debut as Ace Junior, until now that you are one of the shareholders of your own company, you’ve proven time and again that hard work will never fail you

I am one in the hundreds and maybe thousands of your fans,but you will always be the One.

Please forgive me for sharing this.

    Leeki, one of his nicknames, debuted as a soloist in 4 Apr 2009 as AJ (Ace Junior).

    He will forever be hounded by his version of the American Dance please check YT videos of him doing it at your own risk. Warning,I and GK himself cringe when he does it until now. probably regretting why he did it years before.

    Main Dancer of Beast/Highlight but probably the first one to forget the choreography. Exhibit A: https://youtu.be/SjaIg9eTBQ8

    Dabbled into acting from High Kick through the Roof to the recent Lovely Horribly. And was one of the main variety-idols since 2009, MC’d SBS Inkigayo and variety shows.

    Credited as lyricist/producer of 19 songs (and counting; for Beast/Highlight,his solo, BTOB’s and Rainz) since their debut with Bad Girl. Most of his songs are R&B style wise.

    My GK list:

    Favorite Composed Song: Curious
    (https://youtu.be/Y8VBTO9Bpqc)

    Least Favorite Solo: Wipe the Tears
    (https://youtu.be/kYtMZ8cpcNs)

    Favorite Performance (his solo Concert): Dreaming

I missed your drama but I feel extra proud when I read how viewers liked your character. They rooted for you my dear,the boy who sees ghost.

From drama filming,to being a coach to Fiction kids on Dancing High, to flying to HK for performances and for the fan meeting in SG, I am very very proud of you and Highlight.

A few more days and we will 🎉Celebrate🎉
our 9th year,I look forward for more years together.

See you in your next project!

Ribbon

The title track of Highlight’s last Beast album,under Cube Ent released on 4 July 2016 (Doojoon’s birthday!).

Side Story That memorable 2016

I saw Beast in Manila for their Fan Meeting in March.I was very excited since they’re coming to my City.But,rumors started circulating about Hyunseung plus he missed the Manila FM.In April,it was announced that he’s left the group.

When Beast’s comeback was announced I was very very worried.How will they sound now? HS has a great voice. And who comes back with 2 ballad songs for promotions?

But as always,Beast hasn’t disappointed me.

Ribbon
a midtempo ballad,just like their song 12:30 in 2014.More than the lyrics, that violin instrumentals almost throughout the song,hooked me.Sometimes though,it overwhelms the vocals.But I just loved strings orchestrations in songs.

Yoseob fills in for the parts that Hyunseung might have had,at least for me.Junhyung totally nails the emotional rapping on this tune,turning it to singing seamlessly,lending some edginess to the tune.

Lyrics were inspired by JH’s hotel robe’s ties,loosening.I kid you not,he said, “It’s a ribbon.I went outside while wearing a hotel robe,and the ribbon easily came undone.I thought I had tied it tightly,but that wasn’t the case.I used that to explain the relationship between two lovers.”

It’s reminded me so much of 12:30 which I loved and sometimes lessens my enjoyment about it.

The MV
(https://youtu.be/3zMwt3pg8ZA)

I loved it with its changing environments and scenes,never having quite the same look even if they hit the same location again.The boys dance, too, which just adds some goodness to the whole thing. (Those hip swivels,OMG! ; like this: https://youtu.be/i4BoypuT0jQ)

It boils down to loneliness, as memories are fished out of a storage locker. The clocks? Because time is the one thing that was not on their side. It manages to be much more than the sum of its parts.

Admittedly,it kind of creeps me out, sometimes.Maybe their darkest MV.

But,it did tied me up with Beast, even more.That I was ready but anxiously waiting for news after their contract ended in Oct 2016 until now.

    Ahh ribbon. This tipsy version is my fave live version.

    Thanks for sharing the side story of 2016, i haven’t found much info in eng on HS’s departure and subsequently the group’s departure from cube. I guess that explains the melancholic tone of the album. The group looked pretty down in that year’s comeback. Its was probably an emotional year for the fandom as well.

    The mv is creepy indeed, now that I watch it closely this time. That hand coming from the locker 😱. And poor doojoon, of everyone it had to be him assigned to jump off a building.
    And I laughed at the hip swivel collection video! Those are awesome moves though, thanks to this HLnuna video which replayed it 3x, i’d always look out for it in every ribbon performance.

    Once again thanks for these trivia! Its great to listen to this song again with all that context. <3
