Yang Yoseob’s kind heart has impressed his fans once again, after it was discovered that he had personally replied to a fan who was recently diagnosed with a vocal cord nodule.

On February 21st, the B2ST member wrote on his Twitter, “Vocal cord nodules are a frequent occurrence to people who sing!”

That was the direct reply to a message left by his fan, who was also an aspiring singer. The fan’s message read, “B2ST Yoseob, I’m very sick right now. What do I do.”

The fan added that she had visited a hospital and received an official diagnosis for her vocal cord nodule. The fan wrote, “I went to the hospital today and saw my throat’s condition directly for myself. It was scary. The reality is very scary”. Alone and scared, she admitted that she had even wanted to jump in front of a passing car. 

Yoseob said, “When I was first diagnosed with a vocal cord nodule, I thought like that too! But just think of that nodule as hardened skin over the vocal cords! It means you’ve practiced a lot. People who practice as hard as that end up becoming successful.”

He continued, “Since I have a lot of singers around me, I’ve seen some who even went into surgery for it. But after the surgery, they comfortably started singing again. So don’t worry too much, and I hope you go to a big hospital and receive a correct diagnosis. Have strength!”

The fan then replied to Yoseob’s message with, “Just like you said, I’ll start singing comfortably again. I’ll show you an awesome image, rather than my hurt image.”

When asked by the reporter on how they came up with their name, Yoseob replied, “Before our debut, a foreign dance instructor came to visit and saw us dance. At the time, he exclaimed, ‘So~ Beast!’ The meaning of the word means that it’s ‘cool’ or ‘amazing.’”

“Do you remember October 16th, 2009?” the reporter asked. Junhyung said, “Yes, we were all very nervous. We had rehearsed so much that our conditions weren’t the best. Yoseob was really upset about going off key a tiny bit, but to our ears, we couldn’t tell.”

Check out the video:


Idol group BEAST’s Yang Yoseob revealed his weight.

Yang Yoseob recently participated in the New Year’s special MBC “Youth Variety Bouquet” which was filmed in Kyeong-Gi Do Ilsan MBC Dream Centre. There he revealed his weight to be 57kg.

This day, for a quiz game, Yang Yoseob had to piggyback the nunas(?) of the ‘Lady Generation’ team and he joked, saying he was tired. After this, while the topic of weight was going around, Yang Yoseob eventually revealed his weight.

The female participants who were suddenly embarrassed knowing that Yang Yoseob’s weight was in the 50kg range said “To be honest, his weight is not much different from ours” and laughed a horse laugh. However, Yang Yoseob, seemingly unaffected by this, loafed around the studio, attracting attention once more.

BEAST’s main vocal Yang Yoseob was the only male member in the Lady Generation team this day and actively participated in jump roping and other games, receiving the love of all the nunas. The recorded show from this day will be broadcasted on the morning of the 6th.

Gagman Kim Kyung Jin, who once gained interest as the “perfect son” for receiving straight A+ grades in school, was recently picked by T-ara’s Jiyeon as her ideal man.
During a recent recording of KBS 2TV’s “100 Points out of 100″, T-ara’s Soyeon asked Jiyeon if there was anyone on the set that she liked. In order to find Jiyeon’s ideal man, the MCs asked a set of questions to the male cast, including Lee Suk Hoon, B2ST’s Yoseob, MBLAQ’s Lee Joon, and Supreme Team’s Simon D.

In particular, when Jiyeon gave her opinion on whether there was anything unique about each of the male cast members, she stated that Yoseob’s unique point was how much he talked about himself. Yoseob made a huge fuss in response, causing the whole set to burst into laughter.

After persistent questioning, Jiyeon finally picked her ideal man – Kim Kyung Jin. Jiyeon stated, “When I watch the programs that Kim Kyung Jin comes out on, I always thought his cuteness and frank image were charming.”  The rest of the cast were utterly baffled by her choice and could not believe he was her true ideal man.
