The members of Highlight — who originally debuted in B2ST or BEAST — have been in the K-Pop industry for quite some time now.
They originally debuted on October 15, 2009, meaning that they’re all active now going into their 14th year as K-Pop idols, and are staples of the second generation.
And while many second-generation K-Pop groups are relatively quiet these days, Highlight has been keeping their fans happy with two albums and multiple concerts so far this year!
Most recently, the group had a comeback with the album After Sunset on November 7, and have been putting on performances for the title track “Alone”.
While the members are arguably most well-known for their strong vocals — particularly when it comes to main vocalist Yoseob — there was something else about their performance at Show! Music Core on November 12 that had netizens raving.
Each of the members looked sleek and stylish in a mixture of suits and shiny pleather, but Yoseob himself drew everyone’s attention with his daring outfit.
Dressed in tight black pants and a “shirt” that bared the entirety of his impressive abs and much of his chest, Yoseob showed that just because he’s 14 years into his career it doesn’t mean he isn’t still working hard to stay in shape!
His incredible physique paired with his unparalleled vocals have taken social media by storm, and people can’t get enough.

It even captured enough attention to be the subject of a post on a Korean forum, which has nearly 100,000 views at the time of this writing. Titled “The poisonous look of an idol 14 years into his career”, the post includes the above tweets as well as screenshots that showcase Yoseob’s impressive body.
