Pinoy K-Pop lovers rejoice! Korean Wave or Hallyu is definitely sweeping across the country like storm.
Kim Hyun Joong is famous in the Philippines for his role as Yoon Ji Hoo, the calm and charismatic gentleman of F4, in the hit Korean drama series "Boys Over Flowers." BEAST is one of the most prominent Korean boy groups that captured the hearts of fans with their oozing talents and chart-topping hits.
Kim Hyun Joong is also active in his singing career as the leader of SS501 which debuted in Korea in 2005. Their songs such as "Snow Prince," "Fighter," "Déjà Vu," "A Song Calling For You" and "Love Like This" received so much love and support from their fans both in Korea and abroad.
In fact, despite language barriers, Filipinos love to sing their songs "Because I’m Stupid" and "Making A Lover" which are included in the "Boys Over Flowers" OST. Their song "Love Like This" is steadily climbing its way to the top of the MYX Chart. It is currently placed on Number 8 on the MYX Hit Chart (May 23 – 29) and Number 7 on the MYX International Top 20 (May 22 - 28).
BEAST is composed of Doo Joon, Hyun Seung, Jun Hyung, Yo Seob, Gi Kwang and Dong Woon.

BEAST means Boys of the East Standing Tall. Their albums include "Beast Is The B2ST" and "Shock Of The New Era." Their popular songs are "Bad Girl," "Mystery," "Shock" and "Special."
