BEAST is a six-member boy band from South Korea, formed in 2009 by Cube Entertainment. The band’s members are Yoon Doo-joon, Jang Hyun-seung, Yong Jun-hyung, Yang Yo-seob, Lee Gi-kwang, and Son Dong-woon.
The group’s debut release was in October, 2009, when their first mini-album, “Beast Is the B2ST”, was made available. They then released their first full-length album, “Fiction and Fact”, in 2011, receiving their first triple crown on M.net's M! Countdown for their lead single “Fiction”. In the same year, BEAST made their Japanese debut with the release of the single, “Shock” (Japanese Version).
The group gained attention for the lack of industry success previously experienced by its members, with media outlets referring to them as “a group of recycled material”. However, the group has achieved significant commercial and critical accolades with time, winning the Bonsang award at the Seoul Music Awards in both 2011 and 2012. BEAST won the Artist of the Year (Daesang) award at the Melon Music Awards and Gaon Chart Awards for the second quarter of the year in 2011. “Fiction” also won a Daesang for “Song of the Year” at the 2011 KBS Music Festival.
After the huge success of last year’s “Fiction and Fact”, BEAST is back with their fifth mini-album “Midnight Sun” on 22 July 2012.
Composed by Shinsadong Tiger and Choi Kyu Sung, the advance track “Midnight” is a catchy, lyrical number themed around a night in which love and music are awakened. “Midnight” was released one week before the mini album’s release, on 15 July 2012, as a pre-release single.
The lead single “Beautiful Night” is a powerful electro synth-pop song that departs from the style of their previous beat-heavy dance tracks.
Member Jun Hyung continues to take an increasingly active songwriting role in BEAST’s albums, penning the rap lyrics for most songs and participating in the composition and arrangement of “The Day You Rest” and “Dream Girl”.
