Who is your TheEastLight. bias?

Latest Korean comeback:

Who is your TheEastLight. bias? Do you know more facts about them? Feel free to comment below. 🙂

  • rose’s no 1 fan

    JunWook looks so handsome in this photo!!!!! *___________*
    he reminds me of the actor who played in “My Love from Another Star” o__o
    isn’t he? XDDDDDD

  • Chrystalyn

    Woojin looks loke CNU in this photo😂

  • Chrystalyn

    My bias is WooJin and SaGang😍

  • Chrystalyn

    I think you wrote TheEastLight twitter wrong Suppose to be @TELTheEastLight.

  • Asian Addicted

    I am sorry but I don’t know what you mean ^^ It says @TELTheEastLight and if you click on the link it directs you to the correct side aswell 🙂

  • Asian Addicted

    Where is this from? :3 It reminds me a lot of Jinyoung (Jr. of Got7)

  • Kira

    You are right, JunWook and the actor Kim Soo‑hyun do look a bit like Jinyoung from GOT7
    Don’t they look alike? 😀
    Now to answer your question, in that pic is actor Kim Soo‑hyun from the drama “My Love From the Star”

  • Shree

    I’m pretty sure Woojin’s height is 166cm ( He had mentioned his height in Produce 101)

  • secretninja312

    They’re probably not posting it because they are still young teenage boys and are still growing. Especially Woojin, he’s definitly going through a growth spurt right now and his height is currently probably around 176cm.

  • hanjisungsforehead

    am I the only one who loves seunghyun ??

  • sam UI

    Their song “Real Man” caught my interest. That is definitly a dope song. I’m keeping an eye on them from now on.

    They aren’t that popular yet they were actually nominated in Mama 2017.

  • Renee Alvarado-Berend

    Nope. It was confirmed he grew 8 in. And is now 174 cm

  • KProfiles

    Thanks for the heads up, we usually just list them in the order of their age, because when changing the group pic the names remain all mixed up. So, thanks again for the heads up, it’s really appreciated!

  • Jools

    Only 2 of them are older than me…weird😖

  • Renee Alvarado-Berend

    Sagang is also the groups main rapper-
    (No i’m not just saying this he really is- he announced it himself during a live and raps in a lot of their songs)

  • Me and woojin share birthdays!

  • Also fuck media line

  • Lovisalollolilla

    SeokCheol and SeungHyun left the group and media line entertainment

  • OhItsLizzie

    Media line is so shit.
    They abuse these kid’s mentally and physically.
    Chocking, hitting etc.
    Did it for 4 year’s.
    Kid’s, Get better soon.
    Get a better company.

  • Maria Allkivi

    Media line can go die in hell. They are kids, I hope the kids get better and are okay.

  • KProfiles

    @disqus_Z5lMEHXkDY:disqus Thanks a lot for the info and for providing the source, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • KK

    Dude this is freaking bullshit just because they are still students doesn’t mean that you can just beat them however you want and wtf is wrong with the CEO, he make them smoke and just violently beated them up for no reason. The CEO and PD deserve to go to jail

  • a_k

    Honestly, after all that’s been said to happen, I hope all the members leave the label and find better ones (if they don’t leave the idol life altogether). They deserve WAY better than abusive superiors and a CEO who did nothing about it. They are literal kids who’ve done nothing wrong to deserve that abuse. It’s sickening.

  • I saw this one kpop idol and she was 14 o.o

  • Aracely Rodriguez

    I’ve been a Sunnie since may 2017. Seokcheol and Seunghyun have made my day everyday. They made my life fun. They made me happy. Ever since last year, my sisters have been asking “If The East Light came to Atlanta, would you want to go to their concert?” I was like “Yes I really want to go to their concert!! I want to meet them !! I love them soo much !!!” Look at what happened now!! Right here, right now, my life is just messed up. Media line needs to go. What had happened was so not good. Beating them was not good. What they did was wrong. Whats going to happen to The East Light now?? Will they be the same? No they will NOT be the same because 2 members left. They are not the same. All the sadness is drowning me. All the tears are making huge puddles. no, now its an ocean. This is not the time to be happy. In my head, I’m repeating “This can’t be it! They are not the same anymore! I’m not me anymore!” They were my everything. Seokcheol and Seunghyun will always be with me no matter what!! I will never forget about them, never. And what? Whoever caused this isn’t going to jail!! The should ROT in jail. They should have never done this. This ain’t it!! I’m never gonna meet a great drummer nor bassist. They were the only ones that mattered to me!! I just can’t believe what just happened. I was just happy 10 minutes ago, my sister ran upstairs to me saying “Seokcheol and Seunghyun left the band!!” As fast as I could, I went here and I was scrolling down, and when I saw the horrifying word ‘Former members’ my heart dropped thousands of miles. I saw their beautiful faces. Is this the last time i will ever hear of them? maybe it is my last time. How can this happen?? Someone please tell me. The East Light were underrated but I was here for them. No one knew about The East Light until they dropped the news about how they get abused. And then y’all get sad and comment. That is just SICK! The East Light will NEVER be the same without Seokcheol and Seunghyun. Forever in my heart. <3

  • Michelle

    Admittedly I’m looking them up because of the recent news, and holy frick they’re so young. Not that it would make it okay if they were older but them being so young makes it even more infuriating. This kind of abuse impacts people for the rest of their lives. I hope the producer and the CEO go to jail.

  • Lou Kim

    The leader around my age that scary

  • Sin

    This is so horrible. I feel as though I’m about to cry. I wish I could do something more than comment on a single article. I hope they get better.

  • Lani Joiner

    The remaining members contract got terminated. https://m.entertain.naver.com/read?oid=382&aid=0000682754

  • S.

    Not sure if this means they have disbanded, but Media Line terminated the remaining four members’ contracts.

  • KProfiles

    @lanijoiner:disqus Thanks a lot for the info and for providing the source, it’s much appreciated! 🙂

  • KProfiles

    @boundlessea:disqus Thanks a lot for the update, it’s much appreciated! 🙂 We’ll stay tuned for future announcements regarding the bands’ future.

  • S.

    Of course! I’ll try to let you know if I find out anything more. 🙂

  • Multifandom Kpop Fan

    The youngest is 8 months older than me.

    I feel sad that they are about to disband 🙁

  • Baako Jernigan

    The fact that the abuse started in 2015 when they were only 12/13/15 years old? Just young, defenceless, terrified children? God, this makes me sick to my stomach…

  • Baako Jernigan

    Please sign the petition if you want to help them: https://www1.president.go.kr/petitions/411485

  • Arya Stark

    They are all younger than me and have had to go through so much

  • I think it would be safer to assume:
    Inactive Members:
    Seokcheol and Seunghyun (no confirmation of contract termination with these two as of yet, nor is there any confirmations of them being removed from the group)

    Former Members:
    Eunsung, Junwook, Sagang and Woojin (Media Line confirmed that these four members are no longer part of the agency, effectively removing them from the group).

  • Kimberly Amor

    i hope some agency signs them up. ☺♥

  • Fennec Fox Jeongin

    Yeah the maknae from iz*one, she’s younger than me 🙁

  • Choi Minki

    EXACTLY…. I actually cried reading that

  • Aracely Rodriguez

    This is not fair !!!!! They shouldn’t disband !!!! I know how hurt Seokcheol and Seunghyun are but the agency needs to go !!! I REALLY want The East Light together !!! </3

  • Markiemin

    Eunsung and Sagang mentioned in a recent press conference that the group is disbanded. Other stuff was revealed about the lee brothers and it’s not entirely one-sided. if anyone needed a thread to the translations, let me know


    Here is the english subbed press conference where Lee Seokcheol talks about abuse from CEO and PD. It made me cry when management would use the threat of possible disbandment to keep the members quiet about the abuse. I am just happy that they are free now and i hope that the members will be protected from the PD and CEO:

  • Jimin’s Jams

    Beat them until they BLED?! With a BAT?! That’s messed up!! Really?! Omg!

  • secret pearl

    even if you guys coming back to the kpop scene under new name, I will support you guys. Don’t give up on music..
