Highlight Beast Its Still Beautiful

Former Beast members are back as Highlight with a wonderful new music video.  “It’s Still Beautiful” is an emotional track that is the perfect restart for this group.

Song

Beautiful is the first word that comes to mind with this song.  The piano ballad that backs the solemn vocals is deep and emotional and you can really feel the emotion behind each line sang.  The high notes were perfectly time and hit too.

There’s just something about this song that really hits home, just based on sound.  It’s so full of emotion and hope, but at the same time, very sorrowful.

The chorus is probably the highlight of the song, with the deep piano mixing with the quicker, higher vocals.

This song could easily become my go to for when I’m feeling down.

Video

This song is really set up to hit you right in the feels and the video proves that.  There’s no end to the ‘aw’ moments as it progresses.  It seems like the boys are having troubles of some sort with their ladies and they’re on the brink of losing them, or already have.  Seeing those moments… I felt like I was watching a drama!

Everyone has felt down at some point or another, and this video captured the essence of that.  That moment of longing, moment of reminiscing, moment of “I wish” that we’ve all felt was flawlessly incorporated into the video.

While there wasn’t a consistent story that you could follow from start to finish, there was just enough that you could get the gist of things and understand how each person felt, which was perfect.  I think if there was anymore, I would’ve had to grab a box of tissues for all the tears.

Overall, what an amazing way to start their comeback under their new name!  And congratulations to Highlight for making what should become the breakup song of the year!

Lyrics

Hangul

대가 없는 나란 걸
이 거리도 안다는 듯이
나를 감싸 주네요
낯설어질까 두려웠지만
이젠 괜찮아요
내 걱정은 하지 마세요

그대가 남긴
이별은 쓰라리지만
사랑만큼 또 소중하죠
아픔마저도 너라서
난 웃을 수 있어

떠나가던 모습조차
내겐 추억인 거죠
어쩔 수 없는 상처는
언젠가 아물 거예요

머물렀던 모든 곳에
그대는 떠났지만
비어버린 빈 자리조차
그대였기에
그대로 아름답다

환하게 웃어보아도
어딘지 슬퍼 보인대요
어쩔 수 없는 걸까요
잘 숨겨놓으려 했지만
어느새 새어 나와요
작지 않은 그대라서

그대가 남긴
이별은 쓰라리지만
사랑만큼 또 소중하죠
아픔마저도 너라서
난 웃을 수 있어

떠나가던 모습조차
내겐 추억인 거죠
어쩔 수 없는 상처는
언젠가 아물 거예요

머물렀던 모든 곳에
그대는 떠났지만
비어버린 빈 자리조차
그대였기에
그대로 아름답다

아파할 자격조차 없지 난
뒤돌아보면
소중하단 말
사랑한단 말만큼
잘해준 것조차 없기에

처음부터 내가 가지기엔
너무 아름다운 네 맘이었다고
너와 함께 했던 시간
모든 게 아름다웠어

그대가 찾아 왔죠 내 꿈에
꿈인걸 알면서도 내 뺨엔
뜨거운 눈물이 흐르네요
그댄 여전히 아름답네요

그대가 찾아 왔죠 내 꿈에
꿈인걸 알면서도 내 뺨엔
뜨거운 눈물이 흐르네요
그댄 여전히 아름답네요

English

s if this street knows
That I’m without you
It embraces me
I was afraid things would feel too unfamiliar
But now it’s alright
Don’t worry about me

The breakup you left behind is bitter
But the love was so precious
Because even this pain is from you
I’m able to smile

Even seeing you leave
Is a memory to me
Scars that had to form
Will some day heal

In all the places
You are gone
But even this empty spot
Because it was you
It’s beautiful as it is

I try smiling brightly
But they say I seem sad somehow
I guess I can’t help it
I tried to hide it but
It seeps out
Because inside of me, you’re not small

The breakup you left behind is bitter
But the love was so precious
Because even this pain is from you
I’m able to smile

Even seeing you leave
Is a memory to me
Scars that had to form
Will some day heal

In all the places
You are gone
But even this empty spot
Because it was you
It’s beautiful as it is

I have no right to be in pain
Because when I look back
I didn’t treat you as well
As how precious you are
As how much I loved you

Since the beginning
Your heart was too beautiful for me to have
Times I spent with you
All of it was beautiful

You came to me in my dreams
Although I knew it was a dream
Hot tears streamed down my cheeks
You’re still so beautiful

You came to me in my dreams
Although I knew it was a dream
Hot tears streamed down my cheeks
You’re still so beautiful
