The group made headlines with their attendance at 'KCON NY 2017' as it was the first stage in America the members have taken after transitioning from B2ST to Highlight. With this thought, the members gave individual advice to themselves from a year ago. Yoseob advised, "The advice I would give to myself a year ago is... Don't overthink things. The past has been a time for the group to try out a lot of different things. Currently, the group trust and believe in our new company staff because they treat us like family. I want to say that it is important for me to continue whatever I want to do."
The group also answered questions regarding their new company Around Us and the potential of new artists signing on with the agency. Member Junhyung replied, "As of now, we don't plan on signing on any new artists. However, it's a possibility in the future. We want to find artists who we can produce with and help to exponentially grow the company."
Highlight also shared that they would have requested fellow artists BTOB and Dru Hill to the KCON lineup.
