Hello Lights, B2UTYS and ALICE!
For those of you who are unaware, the members of rookie group VICTION are HUGE fans of BEAST/Highlight. They cite the group as the reason they became singers and the group they are most collectively influenced by.
Since debut, VICTION has talked about their love of BEAST/Highlight. They have performed BEAST dance covers during fan engagments, been caught singing BEAST and Highlight songs during V live broadcasts, and it is widely known amoung their fans how much they really look up to Doojoon, Hyunseung, Junhyung, Yoseob, Kikwang and Dongwoon.
Their fans (known as ALICE) even give the members BEAST-related gifts (especially Heochan as he is the BIGGEST BEAST fanboy of the group).
Last November, Doojoon posted in support of VICTION's debut on his personal Instagram.
This reportedly was a moment beyond belief for the as-yet-to-debut members of VICTION.
Flash forward to March 25th, 2017. VICTION was at the Show Music Core studios in the midst of their comeback promotions for "Eyez Eyez" on the same day that Highlight was performing their Show Music Core Debut Stage for "Plz Don't Be Sad". Shortly before VICTION took the stage, they had the opportunity to meet their idols and the VICTION staff had the piece of mind to film it for a live V app broadcast.
What you are about to watch is so incredibly adorable.
Can you believe they were more nervous to meet Highlight than they were to debut?
Their hearts were racing, their legs weak and they argued over who would be the one in front. As I watched the lead up to their meeting with Highlight, I was nervous for them. You can see the maknae, Subin (baby faced kido with spikey hair) repeatedly hiding behind his members as they waited in the hallway. Seungwoo, their leader (Blonde in the black jacket and red/black plaid) was more than happy to bow out of the leader role for this meeting as the members ALL insisted Heochan (the one holding the Viction album) should be in the front, stating "Today, the spot is specially for you".
Of course, our Highlight boys were so the wonderful, sweet and supportive guys us Lights and B2UTYS know them to be. Dongwoon performed magic tricks, Doojoon presented VICTION with a copy of their "Can You Feel It" album and Highlight even agreed to play a soccer game with VICTION should the opportunity present itself.
Following this meeting, VICTION was asked about the interaction with their idols during an interview. Here's what they had to say:
I seriously... like, my haertu guys! Can you imagine what it must have been like for the VICTION members waiting in that hallway?
In April, Dongwoon posted a video message in support of VICTION to Twitter.
Dongwoon was asked to name the "Junior group he is most looking forward to?" Dongwoon replied "VICTION" then stated:
“I’m most interested these days in APink’s brother group, VICTON. We heard that they are fond of our group, so we’ve grown interested as well. I will cheer on their new album a lot. Please show lots of support for VICTON!”
Does this just make your heart melt? I'm so glad that VICTION got to meet their idols and proud of how wonderful our Highlight members are. I hope that these two groups get the opportunity for more interaction in the future.
HIGHLIGHT FIGHTING!!! VICTION FIGHTING!!!
