Yoseob shared a story behind the group's new name Highlight.


At the showcase for Highlight's 1st mini album 'Can You Feel It?', the members talked about making a comeback with a brand new name. 


SEE ALSO: Highlight's Yoseob is first up for 'Monarch - Owner of the Mask' OST, 'I Couldn't Cry Because I'm A Man'



Dongwoon explained, "B2ST's last promotion was for the album 'Highlight'. This is the start to a new promotion and (the new name) includes our wish to make it a highlight (of our career)."


Yoseob added, "I suggested the name 'With Us' for our group but it got ignored. They said it sounds like a name of a convenience store."

How are you liking the name Highlight and their comeback with ''Plz Don't Be Sad''?

    It was Doojoon who suggested "Around US" as group name, ended up being their company name. I think they mentioned it during "My Little TV" or "Cultwo Show"

    “But they said it sounds like a name of a convenience store" HAHAHAHAH AS EXPECTED OF HIGHLIGHT. Initially i couldnt get use to the name Highlight even tho i know why they would use that (the members alrdy showed their love for this name previously on their 'Highlight' comeback album live stream on V Live), but now, after hearing it so many times, I think it's a really beautiful and meaningful name for them. <33 HI5HLI5HT HWAITING!! <333

    Omg a lot of Kpop stars legit need to get their English better. Even their Engrish in their songs are just cringey. With Us makes no sense!
