In the latest episode of Knowing Bros, Highlight gave the viewers a sneak peek performance of their soon-to-be-released new track, “The Blowing,” for the first time as a four-membered group — after former member Yong Junhyung left the group in 2019 following the Burning Sun scandal.
In this episode, Highlight revealed that member Kikwang is the musical genius behind the composition and lyrics for “The Blowing.”
Once the Knowing Bros episode aired and the TV program’s official YouTube channel shared a full version of the short-but-sweet exclusive performance, Highlight fans are falling deeper in love with the summery vibe of the song!
Following the episode, the anticipation for the comeback simply exploded on the internet — leaving both “Highlight” and “The Blowing” as top trending keywords on Korea’s search engines. In response to the tremendous amount of interest, Highlight members shared emotional Instagram stories thanking the fans for their patience and loyalty!
Watching the four of us on a TV show together… It makes me laugh without any worries. But it also makes me tear up. I’m so grateful and touched, beyond what words could ever describe, at the fact that we still have fans who love and support us and that we still get opportunities like this to appear on programs. I also think it’s rather miraculous that I met and work with teammates who value and respect Highlight more than anything. So I want to be, and I’m going to try to be, a perfect piece to what complete this team for a long, long time.
