The morning of the 9th that many people have been waiting for is here. Also, I think that you will be waiting for the mornings to come with the brightest sun shining each day.
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.
The teaser of the first story of the new BEAST album will be available on the BEASTs official website; http://www.playb2st.com

OSEN=Choi Nayoung Reporter] If the recent issue was on the girl groups, the male idol groups are making their comebacks one by one. The groups include BEAST, who is referred to as the beast-dols, and ‘sweet-dol’ SHINee with their new follow up song, attracting the female fans with the different visual and music styles. The opposite styles of the two male groups BEAST and SHINee are currently attracting attention as the spotlight is turned on them.
BEAST symbolized the birth of a new beastly group. They had made their extravagant comeback with a strong male beast concept. With the military look showing off their muscles, they show of a lot of charisma on stage. Wearing studs on a all black leather outfit, and the bold jewelry adds on to the beastly idol concept.
Also, unlike the other idol groups trying to stand out by dying their hair color, BEAST stuck with the black, dark wine and other darker colors and added only one lighter color to a member which acted like a highlight point emphasizing the manliness.
To this, the hair stylist in Junoh hair commented, “With the season changing to fall, more and more idols are appearing with calm hair colors instead of the bright and standing out colors.” In addition she added, “The dark wine color Lee Kikwang portrays a strong, but sexy feel which adds on to the beastly idol image.”
If that was BEAST, SHINee, who had showed off a strong and sexy image for ‘Lucifer’ appeared with the follow up song ‘HELLO’ and showed off a sweet image. Unlike the extravagant and special outfits in the past, with the follow up song, they all turned into perfect romantic guys for the follow up song.
In particular, SHINee’s hairstyle had shown off their sweet image the best. For the ‘Lucifer’ promotions, they had shown off a white/light blonde hair, half shaven hair, and other shocking looks, but for the follow up song, they had displayed a much more tone down color of the light brown. Also, unlike the special styling used to show off a lively hair, they had completed the romantic guy style with a light wax styling.

The 6 member group BEAST had finally made a comeback.
BEAST had their first comeback stage on the first of October with the 3rd album ‘Mastermind’ on the live broadcast of KBS 2TV ‘Music Bank’. On this day, BEAST performed the song ‘Mastermind’ and the title song ‘Breath’.
Debuted last year, since then BEAST’s popularity rose and is now considered one of the higher leveled groups out of all the male groups. On this day, they were on the last stage and showed off the current position of BEAST. It can be concluded that they had proudly won their position as one of the greatest male idol group.
On this day, BEAST captured the hearts of female fans with their strong charisma.
BEAST had been known for the strong skills and had been referred to as the ‘singers who aren’t scared of the performance and live’. However this was possible due to the raw practice through day and night.
BEAST’s leader Yoon Doojoon wrote on his twitter on the 30th, “Just keep watching us like the debut stage 1 year ago and cheer for us” and “I’m nervous and anxious like my first debut” showing that he was excited and at the same time very nervous.
The ‘Breath’ music video that was revealed a day before debut showed explosive amount of views in various music sites, and it had become the most downloaded clip on GOM TV the moment it was released. Top ranking search words were a given and it had even made it on the worldwide trending list on twitter showing the popularity they have overseas as well.
The album that was sold on that day had also kept its number one position on the charts making the wait for the comeback even greater.
Also the choreography revealed in the music videos caused much anticipation to make others wonder how the comeback stage is going to be like.

BEAST had revealed the difficulties they faced while preparing for the ‘Breath’ performance.
BEAST had been continuously attracting attention by showing off a dance that displayed the different characteristics of 6 members while still maintaining to mix the different performances into one for ‘Breath’. The practice video that had been released afterwards also helped to gain attention.
In the interview with Newsen, Yong Junhyung stated, “The choreography practice was the hardest.” The choreography for BEAST had been the work of Haw. He had made up the dance moves in America and sent them over to Korea, and the dance team in Korea had to study the video and teach BEAST. However a few days later, Haw arrived in Korea and checked over the dance and BEAST had to relearn the moves from scratch.
“We practiced the choreography for 3~4 days without a rest in the practice room. After that we moved right on to the music video filming.”
BEAST’s ability to quickly learn the dance moves have been proven. Even during the ‘SHOCK’, they had practiced the dance moves right until the date of the music video filming. “This time we had asked them for a favor earlier. We wanted more time to practice freely. But the reality wasn’t like that.” (Jang Hyunseung)
“It is also our job to digest all the dance moves in a short time. However since the ending was coming soon, everyone starts to anticipate. We practiced with the stress and overwhelming feeling on us the whole time.” (Yong Junhyung)
Leader Yoon Doojoon had also thought about “actually running away with the member because the stress on them was too much.” In the elevator each of them thought about “hiding away in each of their homes,” but since all of them were scared, they ended the conversation with “running away on a day without schedules.” In the end BEAST’s episode of ‘Runner’ had disappeared.
After Yong Junhyung, who had been nominated as the second in change for the second album, when Yang Yoseob, who had been nominated as the second in charge for third album, stated, “We are messing up. We are just becoming the bad kids,” suddenly all of the other members agreed. BEAST stated, “We ended up forgetting all the hardships after looking at the fans cheering for the dance moves we worked hard on.”
In the dance practice video that was revealed after their comeback had a little surprise for the fans. BEAST had expressed their thankfulness in the crazy dances. When we asked Yoon Doojoon if that was his everyday side, he stated, “I’m not like this,” however he couldn’t avoid Yang Yoseob confessing, “He is worse than that.” Yoon Doojoon had almost even sprained his ankle dancing the ‘Yoon Exaggerated Dance’.
Yoon Doojoon stated, “I really couldn’t tell anyone that I sprained by ankle. Thankfully there weren’t any big problems, but I was a bit disappointed in myself.”
After a year since debut, BEAST, who had been promoting like crazy, is now slowly starting to take off the “rookie” sticker and running towards the top of the music industry. “Through this album, we can clearly feel that we are getting some attention. In the future, we want to let the public know about the existence of BEAST. We hope that there isn’t anyone out there that doesn’t know us. (Jang Hyunseung)
Meanwhile BEAST will be having a special time with the fans in the solo concert coming up in December.
PART 2 AND 3 COMING SOOM.

Group B2ST has returned with their 3rd mini album, “Mastermind.”
In a recent interview, the members expressed that they were upset with not being able to live up to the hype created around their comeback. Having already earned much attention with “Bad Girl” and “Shock,” the group still felt that there was 2% missing. With “Soom,” the boys expressed a strong sense of determination to reach the top this time no matter what.
Doojoon stated, “It’s been a year and a lot more people recognize us. We’ve also gotten a lot of new fans as well. I still feel like something is missing though. We’re still 2% away from being complete. I hope that this promotion cycle fulfills that last 2%.”
Junhyung continued, “Going to the broadcast halls feels a lot more comfortable now as well. It helps us feel more confident on stage.”
Regarding their killer rehearsal schedule, Yoseob answered, “Lately, we’ve began to realize that winning first place isn’t important at all. If we’re not satisfied with what we’re presenting, won’t our fans feel the same as well? We’re working that much harder to make sure that we have every last detail covered. We rehearse, and rehearse.”
On the choreography for “Soom,” Hyunseung stated, “I think one can only feel our performance in its entirety by watching the choreography along with listening to the song. Our new choreography is a lot more detailed than usual. ‘Shock’ was a pretty difficult choreography, but compared to ‘Soom,’ it’s nothing.”
The members revealed that they have already completed their 4th minialbum set to be released in November. Most of all, they say that they’re counting down the time to December 12th, their first ever concert.
Dongwoon expressed, “Holding a concert was the dream of every member. I’m so excited, to the point where I dream of what kind of performance I want to show. I’m anticipating our individual stages, but I want to collaborate with our members as well.”

After coming back with “Soom,” B2ST held their first fan signing for their 3rd album on October 2nd and performed a special guerrilla concert for their fans.
The popularity of the members was astounding as fans gathered early in the morning waiting for the members. B2ST responded with grateful, bright smiles and unending fan service.
B2ST stated that they were upset in not being able to see their fans often and came up with a surprise, on the spot decision to let each of the fans come up and take personal photos with the members.
Despite having a busy schedule booked right after the fan signing, B2ST and their agency representatives alike pushed everything aside in order to make sure that each of their fans were able to receive a precious, meaningful gift.
B2ST’s “Mastermind” managed to sell 10,000 copies two days after its release, bringing the group to the top of the charts for the second half of 2010.
The boys will also be performing their ballad track, “Clenching My Fists,” on the 3rd at SBS’s “Inkigayo.”

As soon as the title song ‘Breath’ was released, it made it up to 1st place on some music charts including Cyworld and more shocking the music industry. It had been as if BEAST had claimed their spot as the top male idol.
In the midst of this, attentions are turned toward to Twitter after BEAST officially revealed their album. In the Twitter trending topic, BEAST and ‘Mastermind’ had trended on the front page and also in the Trending Topics corner, the ‘Mastermind’ album was introduced as well. This showed proof that KPOP fans outside of Asia are showing big interests toward BEAST.
Meanwhile, BEAST released the 3rd mini album in about a year since their debut in 2009 on October. Starting with the debut song ‘Bad Girl’ to ‘Mystery’, ‘SHOCK’, and even ‘Special’, BEAST had been continually hitting homeruns. In one year, Lee Kikwang and Yoon Doojoon had been chosen as top stars wanted in the variety shows.
Now the last thing left is the performance from them on stage. After the release of the music video concept with a military look, the shocking change Son Dongwoon went through is evident. Fans are anticipating as BEAST will show off manly side to a whole new level.
