The East Light’s Eunsung Reunites With HIGHLIGHT’s Yo-seob
Before debuting as a member of The East Light, Eunsung appeared in Mnet’s Voice Kids and made it into the Top 8. It made for an unforgettable experience for him, especially when he had the opportunity to be trained by a member of HIGHLIGHT—Yang Yoseob.
In an interview with Hankyung Ten Asia that was held on May 28th, 2017, The East Light’s Eunsung shared his feelings about being reunited again with Yang Yoseob in another show.
“I remember the time when I appeared in Voice Kids. We had a lot of fun from then on. I remember playing pranks on my parents and brother in the waiting room. He also ran to me, hugged me, and begged me to buy him a hamburger,” The East Light’s Eunsung stated.
“I met the coach (Yang Yoseob) again in Mnet’s I Can See Your Voice 4 highlight section, and every minute and every second was trembling and thrilling. I was even happier because the coach picked me as 1st place,” he said.
“Thanks to our first place, we had a chance to stage a duet with HIGHLIGHT’s seniors. I was moved to think that we, who were taught by coach Yang Yoseob when we were young, would make our debut when we grow up and sing on the same stage again. The coach also said, ‘It’s a new feeling when you guys stand on the same stage as me’ and ‘My heart is beating.’ He also said, ‘You grew up really well’,” The East Light’s Eunsung said.
Eunsung’s Band Disbandment and Future Activities
All the members of the band The East Light have finally terminated their contracts with their agency, Media Line Entertainment.
The decision was made by the agency led by Kim Chang-hwan after careful consideration. The remaining four members, namely Lee Eunsung, Jung Sagang, Lee Woojin, and Kim Jun-wook, have terminated their contracts with the company, following Lee Seok-cheol and Lee Seung-hyun, who first decided to leave the group.
“After careful consideration, we announce that we have chosen to terminate the contract with the remaining four members,” said the agency representative on October 22nd, 2018.
The agency statement also explained that they had discussed with the parents of the four members discussing the best choice to be made. In addition, the press conference was originally planned for the remaining four members.
“However, we have our concern for the young members who will receive additional pain when they stand in the middle of this issue through a press conference. Taking into account their pain and their future, we concluded that terminating the contract was the best course of action. We also discussed the termination of the contract with the parents of the four members,” he said.
In a statement, Media Line Entertainment claimed to be worried about the feelings of the members who have uncertainty for their future with the termination of this contract. His party asked for the support of all parties so that they were no longer injured and could dream again after their wounds healed.
“In addition, as the controversy continues and continues to be noticed, we will no longer be responding to the press considering the potential pain of the six members of The East Light,” he said.
The agency also promised to participate in carrying out legal investigations that will be carried out. They said they would not shirk their responsibilities and would address the issue.
“We apologize for the speculative reports without investigation that may cause pain to the members. We will not release any more in the future,” he concluded.
The East Light, a band consisting of six young people who were still in high school, debuted in 2016. In the midst of their career achievements, in October 2018 reports emerged that they were physically abused by their producer Moon Young-il, and the CEO of the agency, Kim Chang-hwan, verbally, since 2015.
Lee Seok-cheol’s statement was refuted by Kim Chang-hwan. However, the members of The East Light, especially Lee Seok-cheol and Lee Seung-hyun, will still take legal action regarding this case. In this case, a petition was also launched at the Korean Presidential Palace to give justice to the members of The East Light who were abused as minors.
The two former members of The East Light, Lee Eunsung and Jung Sagang supported this statement by saying that Lee Seok-cheol shared that Lee Seung-hyun was physically punished by their father for causing trouble at their agency.
Regarding producer Moon Young-il and CEO Kim Chang-hwan, Lee Eunsung said,
“They are like teachers and fathers. Our house is outside of Seoul. CEO Kim let us stay and cooked for us. When we lived alone in Seoul, he took care of us a lot. I am very grateful to him because he has guided us to the right path. Producer Moon only wants us to be successful and he only thinks about us. He even borrowed money from the bank to treat us. He doesn’t want us to starve.”
“In our trainee days and early debut, we received corporal punishment. We weren’t hit so many times or locked in a room like Seok-cheol and Seung-hyun said. Physical punishment is just like being hit in the palm of the hand like it was done in schools in the past.”
“Seung-hyun said my head was hit until it bled. At that time, Seung-hyun caused trouble and we were all scolded. I don’t know why but I can’t help but laugh. The producer asked why I laughed when I was scolded so he just flicked my head. It didn’t hurt but somehow my head started bleeding.”
Eunsung continued, “Both of them had the choice of choosing their dream or giving up, but we didn’t even have that choice because our team suddenly disbanded one morning.”
Until this article is published, there is no other news about The East Light’s Eunsung regarding his recent career after the band decided to disband. He decided to enlist in the military service in 2019 and has completed his responsibilities in 2021, but he has not returned to the entertainment industry until now.
Nevertheless, let’s continue to give support to The East Light’s Eunsung: hopefully, he can get his passion for a career again as a musician and we can see his comeback as soon as possible!
