K-pop artists Yoon Doo-joon, Yong Jun-hyung, Lee Gi-kwang, Son Dong-woon, and Yang Yo-seob, who have performed as members of Beast, celebrated their new start with fans.
Their fan meeting – namely, ‘777 Party’ – was the first event since the establishment of Around US Entertainment. Ending the contract with their former agency, Cube Entertainment, in October, Beast members made a decision to found an independent label by themselves.
Their first fan meeting as artists of Around US Entertainment was held on December 31, 2016. As if speaking for the fans’ desperate waiting for their comeback, tickets for the event sold out in two minutes.
‘777 Party’ marks the new start of Beast, – although they may not be able to use that band name for future activities – wishing good luck and celebrating the 7th anniversary of their debut.
Hosting the event himself, member Son Dong-woon has successfully led the fan meeting. The event started with updates from the members. Yong Joon-hyung unveiled his new studio, commenting that he could write good songs at the new place. Yoon Doo-joon revealed his current indulgence in caravan camping.
The members treated fans with much awaited performances as well. Starting from Yang Yo-seob’s solo, the stage was filled with various performances fans have been waiting so long.
The fan meeting was highlighted with the New Year’s countdown. Members shared the moment with fans not at the site as well through Naver V-App live streaming.
Through a range of events, Beast members expressed their love for the fans. Bidding a goodbye to the hectic 2016 and greeting lucky 2017, wish there be “flower road” in front of them.
