In the video, singing Bruno Mars Grenade in his own style you see Daegun emitting much sensitivity. His husky beautiful voice is making people anticipate Daeguns vocal abilities. His 179cm, round eyes and white skin makes you think of a nobleman.

After spending several years as a trainee he passed the audition to become F.CUZ new member. I may not win in other areas, but when it comes to singing I have unstoppable greed. Ill grow even better and become a source of strength for F.CUZ he said.

F.CUZ who after adding Raehyun and Daegun has turned into a 5 member group will on the 14th of this month begin their activities through an online fanmeeting. Theyll release their new songs on the 27th and starting promotion activities for the first time in 1 year and 5 months time.

Musical Elizabeth, Brilliant Casting Behind-The-Scenes Revealed

miss D.
you are moonlight

The exact face of Rudolf the director was looking for, Lee Seunghyun makes a musical debut.

The last to be casted in Elizabeth is the youngest, Lee Seunghyun. Before, he used to be the center of focus for being the son of the extremely popular singer Sul Woondo. Although used to promote as a singer in the group F.Cuz, Seunghyun never stood on stage as an actor or a musical performer.

However Director Robert Johansen said, He is the closest to the image of Rudolf I had. He has character and he possesses a voice that can portray a young mans shaky emotions. Kim Seungdae revealed his high expectations for Lee Seunghyun, who will be sharing a stage with veteran actors such as Jeon Dongseok.

Producer Kim Jiwon added, Although the practice period was extremely short after receiving the all-original music scores, his audition was absolutely perfect and I was surprised. Rudolfs representative number is Shadows Get Longer. It really left an impression on me. It is an extremely difficult song to digest, but Seunghyuns singing skills and ability to portray emotions are through the roof. Lee Seunghyun said that he did research on his character before auditioning.

Although he is not a very well-known singer, Lee Seunghyun is a hidden jewel. As the newcomer who has made the producers fall for him, we are looking forward to how Lee Seunghyun will portray the role of Rudolf.

LeeU leaves a message for fans about withdrawing from F.CUZ

miss D.
you are moonlight

It was previously reported that member LeeU was officially withdrawing from F.CUZ. Fans were able to read the agencys official statement, but now it seems that LeeU himself has some words to say about his exit.

LeeU posted a number of tweets about how he is thankful for the kind words and support. He tweeted, Everyone, this is my reason. Its very late, but I wanted to say these words, and attached a link to a longer message concerning his thoughts and feelings.

LeeU went on to state,

As youve all read in the news reports, my F.CUZ members and I belonged to different agencies during our activities. However, as time went on, the paths that the agencies wanted to take, even down to music choice, became different so they had to go their separate ways. It was a very difficult time before this decision. Not being able to sleep was a given, it was so bad that I cried everyday seeing clips of our performances. No one can say it was easy for the two companies to come to this decision.

During the past 2 trainee years and 1 year after debut, the members were like family we all cried and depended on one another during rough times, and my heart is breaking because we cant keep the promise that wed stick by each other until the end. Though things have turned out like this, we plan to keep the promise that well still look after each other In my head, Im still the jokester and second biggest brother of F.CUZ; Im F.CUZs main vocal LeeU, and I will forever be those things in my heart while remembering the happy times.

Yntil all four us are smiling together, until the day the four of us release an album as F.CUZ, please look at us kindly and not harshly, and I ask that you support us all. Thank you.

Yejun "(I) lost 15kg and developed Anorexia through dieting"

you are moonlight


In a recent interview with Newsen, Yejun told us he lost about 12-15kg and I managed not to collapse physically but (in spirit) I did.

While in a period of not promoting and their activities was being monitored it was decided that F.CUZs members needed to urgently diet so the members all started trying to lose weight. Yejun himself had the focus of my meals being salad or fruit.

Yejun revealed that after having removed almost all meat from my food I started developing symptoms that were similar to anorexia and After I was allowed meat again I still thought that if Id eat meat Id get fat again so I deliberately tried throwing up. Continuing he also said Since starting activities again Ive become able to eat normally without gaining weight and I wouldnt be able to stand starving like that again and laughed.

F.CUZs diet was very similar to a war against meat. Every morning we weighed ourselves with a competitive spirit. We lied about our weight and became motivated by each others results, inspiring us to eat even less. It became a more violent battle than if we would have compared ourselves to another group. If I look back our results were almost the same.
