    Kikwang is a truthful person and almost doesn’t know how to lie at all (Weekly Idol ep 296)


    -Junhyung is an introvert
    -because of being an introvert, he appeared on a reality show called “Dangerous Outside the Blankets” wherein all of the idols that were casted on the show are introverts/ people who like to stay home and are shy.

  • wutwutwut

    -Actor Yoo Seonho is known for resembling HIGHLIGHT’s Doojoon


    Kikwang thinks that in terms of face, Dongwoon is best, Doojoon is next and then himself as third


    Junhyung is the one who wrote HIGHLIGHT’s debut song “PLZ DONT BE SAD”

  • moodlamp19

    i just want to ask, why do yoseob and gikwang talk informally to junhyung and doojoon? like, they have 1 year difference.

  • Faraae

    Cause Yoseob and Kikwang are “early 90 liners” so they’re considered the same age as 89 liners. Since Dongwoon is the odd one out they had offered him up to talk informally as well but he refused cause he’s too polite of a maknae lol

  • noon

  • Paula Nunes

    Plz add that junhyung and Heechul are very close friends. They said it on Weekly Idol ep 245

  • //mirae//

    sometimes it just depends on the people, if two people are very close but have an age difference the older one can offer the younger one to speak informally. it isn’t a strict rule where it’s required that younger people speak formally to older people but it’s considered rude to do so without asking or without permission from the elder.

  • Gian Potente

    Please add that Dojoon is currently the main cast of Radio Romance together with Kim So Hyun 🙂

    Under the group photo it’s written as Gikwang and under his facts it’s written as Kikwang. He himself always spells it as Gikwang, thought you might be able to fix this as it might confuse newer fans… 🙂

    In Ki Kwang profil written he’s don’t smoke. So other members smoked?
    Please fix it. If in Ki Kwang written he’s don’t smoke, please make in other members profile ‘don’t smoke’ to.

  • eri

    he highlighted that he doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol because he takes good care of his body, the others didn’t say if they smoke or don’t smoke or if they drink or don’t drink so fans can’t assume
    but Kikwang made himself clear clear on that matter

    It was confirmed that Junhyung was NOT a part of the chat room.

  • Rojin


  • 超攻撃 Hidden K♠RD

    Junhyung departure from Highlight is sad af…

  • Hannah “bluealien20” Truong

    Why did he still have to leave if he got nothing to do with the scandal?

  • Vanessa

    He left in order to protect his own members and us fans. I think it was way too harsh of him to do that since after all he was only a bystander. He didn’t ask to get anything but JJY sent him a video randomly when they were drunk in a one on one chatroom back in 2015. I could go into it more specifically but this explanation will do.

  • Eeman Nadeem

    He was still part of it, he was a bystander and he did nothing when he could have~ He may not have been part of the groupchat but JJY sent a video to him in private message and he and JJY made fun of it~ He made fun of it and also was a bystander, its really disgusting~ I was a fan of him but not anynore~

  • I think Dongwoon deleted his ig account, it doesn’t load

  • Vanessa Z

    He did. He said that twitter wasn’t fun for him anymore and that he’ll be active on Twitter and other places from now on. Also stated not to worry about him 🙂

  • meli

    He didn’t make fun of the girls. He said he made inappropriate comments. Any of us would have done what he did in such a flawed industry and country with so much corruption going on (staying silent and not reporting him) when he trusted JJY to be good. You can choose to not support him anymore and I totally respect that but we as Lights still stand by him. He barely did anything it was a mistake sure but he got dragged into this because of JJY. If you really knew him and the group you wouldn’t find it to be disgusting and just leave. That’s what I think

  • Eeman Nadeem

    Ye he did, he admitted to it by apoligizing~ Dont get me wrong im a fan of Highlight but seriously understand that what he did was horrible. So if your sister was a victim in this, you would be fine with him making inappropiate comments and making fun of her, thats basically what your saying here~

  • MinMin

    It’s been confirmed Junhyung wasn’t apart of the chat btw:)

  • xoyeolfiexo

    does anyone think junhyung will join the group again if he’s been cleared or is he never coming back?

  • 布鲁纳

    there is no way to know, but if he is not jail, has many chances to return (examples bi rain, choi dong wook, kim hyunjoong, park yoochun etc etc)
    I say return to the industry, for the group is already something more uncertain because it may be just a hiatus or it be definitive, even if he shows total regret, korean does not forget or forgive equal to the westerners, this is both good and bad at the same time

  • Rojin

    2 years next he finish the millitary.we will waiting for him.I feel that their leader can keep JH back to the group again just we will wait😔😭

  • Pingback: DIA Members Profile - magentratzerl.net()

  • dee / eunkwang!!

    Hi, please update this with the correct information. It was confirmed that he was never part of the group chats and will not be charged because under the law, he is only a witness not a perpetrator. However, he did receive an spycam video via PM with JJY and did not report it. Due to guilt, he has decided to leave the group to avoid affecting the rest of his group mates.

  • Eunwoo’s Left Leg

    I think it was wrong for Junhyung to watch the videos and even associate with this scandal in general but if he really didn’t do anything wrong then I hope that there will be a chance in the future for him to return to Highlight. I don’t stan but it still makes me really sad that so many people were involved and that even after all of this he still thought about his members and left to protect his group from being attacked by others about something that his members didn’t even know about.
