Now, with BEAST’s comeback in our eye sight, Cube is busy like ever since morning without nights, and full of anticipation and nervousness.
First, BEAST’s first official album, ‘BEAST’s First Official Album’ will be released on May 17th (Tuesday).
With the release date coming up, there are a lot of assumptions being made about the album, but the most important thing to know is that this high album, made with the grown member’s passion and effort, is waiting for you guys.
This album has a dramatic arrangement that almost makes it seem like a story telling album and will feel as if you are reading through many different novels. Also, with the type of sound that wouldn’t be expected with BEAST’s past strong background, they had gotten a new type of sound with a modern feel.
Secondly, for our BEAST fans waiting for the comeback, the BEAST teaser website will be open on the morning of May 9th after the notice about the comeback album.

[Sports Today’s reporter Kang Kyung Rok] On the episode of MBC “For the First Time” aired on the 19th, a competition between the BEAST members was shown on the ‘Street Party’ corner of the show.
The first battle was between Yoon Doojoon and Jang Hyunseung. In this game, the first person to take off the other’s stocking is the victor.
The result is Yoon Doojoon’s dumbfounding loss. In this battle, Yoon Doojoon lifted his leg and provoked Hyunseung. However, the provocation was only temporary, as Hyunseung stole the stocking from Doojoon and won.
The second battle that took place was between Yong Junhyung and the maknae who seems like the bigger hyung, Son Dongwoon. However, even before the MC’s read the profiles of the two, the game ended dryly with Yong Junhyung’s victory.
The championship game was between Jang Hyunseung and Yong Junhyung. In the final game, stockings are worn on both feet and the one to take off the other’s stockings is the victor. As the two people competed seriously, Yong Junhyung took off both of Hyunseung’s stockings and was the champion of the game.
Meanwhile, in this episode, Beast showed a different and fresh charm.

The late revealed ‘grilled meat’ episode between Big Bang’s Seungri and BEAST’s Jang Hyunseung had caused much laughter among fans. It was revealed that even now, their strong relationship is still holding up strong.
On BEAST’s agency Cube Entertainment’s side, they said that “Before BEAST was formed, Jang Hyunseung was a trainee for Big Bang. When him and Big Bang feature in the same music programs, he goes to their dressing rooms to greet them enthusiastically. They also stated that, “Jang Hyunseung uses his own time to meet the Big Bang members, including Seungri.”
On Big Bang’s agency’s side, YG Entertainment said that “The Big Bang members are still close to Jang Hyunseung” and that “Their episode was revealed on a broadcast.”
On this day, Big Bang’s T.O.P revealed that in their trainee days, when they were one team, Jang Hyunseung and Daesung had gone to eat grilled meat often. The youngest and always calm Seungri shyly told the members to grill the meat and this was when the episode happened. Seungri, at the time replied to Jang Hyunseung, saying “I can’t grill meat.” At this time, an angry Jang Hyunseung told Seungri to go with him to buy vitamin drinks separately and that was when he scolded Seungri.
On another note, Seungri will release his first solo mini-album on the 20th and will go into promotions soon.
