Now four years in the music industry, the B2ST members started doing the whole ‘Together But Separate’ thing, where each member ventured out to other roads while the group was on album hiatus.

Not surprising, but each of them found their own paths and did quite well, bringing in more recognition for the group as multi-entertainers

Lee Gi Kwang

Having debuted a little earlier than the other B2ST members (remember AJ?), Lee Gi Kwang has the most experience in doing solo work.

He’s broken out of the idol image by being made fun of his short height on Hot Brothers and mastered the ‘Migook (American) Dance’ by the time he was MCing on Win Win.

He’s acted alongside Yoon Si Yoon, Shin Se Kyung, Lee Kwang Soo and more on High Kick Through the Roof and later moved onto Kim Tae Hee and Song Seung Hun in Princess
