[NEWS] 110322 Dongho, ‘After the member change, I lost 70,000 followers on Twitter’.

With their comeback ahead of them, U-Kiss underwent a member change recently. Alexander and Kibum have left the group, and AJ (Kim Jae Seop) and Hoon (Yeo Hoon Min) have been added. After receiving backlash from the fans, Dongho, Soohyun and other members have revealed their feelings through Twitter.

In Dongho’s latest interview with Newsen, he revealed, “Although I am not affected by negative comments written about me, I care about the negative comments written about our group. Instead of keeping quiet and not saying anything to the fans, I decided that it would be better to take a step out, so I posted on Twitter.”

“It was not like this when Kiseop hyung joined the group. Maybe they’re doing this because they cannot see Alexander and Kibum hyung. For the members as well as the fans, I think we all need some time, so I wrote that ‘all 9 members are a family’. After the change in members, I lost about 70,000 followers on Twitter.”

U-Kiss, born again with the new members, are currently recording their new album. AJ, who has been in the same company, has practiced with the members before their debut. A pre-debut video of Soohyun and AJ dancing together has also attracted a lot of attention. Dongho said that the first time he met Yeo Hoon Min was when they were working on the album. “Han Seok Jun hyung (KBS announcer) called me. He told me he was worried. We are all working hard.”

We asked Dongho about his interests lately. “After my birthday, I will get my identification card”, he answered excitedly. Dongho, who started broadcasting activities in middle school, said, “I want to get my driving license quickly. I’m the only one who doesn’t have my own space. Of course I have my own room, but not the entire house is mine. I like cars, so I have thought of my dream cars for different ages. When I’m in my twenties, I want to drive a sports car. In my thirties to forties, I want to drive a Porsche Cayennes or a BMW. When I’m 50, my dream car is Rolls Royce and a Mercedes ‘Maybach’.”

Besides his big dream cars, there is something else that Dongho is excited about. Dongho’s brother, who is 10 years older than him, will finish his studies in China this summer and return to Korea. Since his brother left to study overseas immediately after serving in the army, they have not been able to live together for almost 7 years. “He must have been so lonely in China. Although we have a lot of fun together when my hyung comes back to Korea once in a while, it is always too short. When I think about my hyung coming back, I’m really happy.”

Dongho is a regular in MBC’s 2011 Wed-Thurs drama, ‘Royal Family’ and he will make his first appearance in a movie, earning himself the title of an ‘acting-dol’. He is also part of the pretty-boy idols on SBS’ ‘Star King’ together with 2PM’s Nickhun and SHINee’s Minho.

“In the past, I relieved stress by being part of ‘Invincible Baseball’ and through ‘Star King’, I get to experience a whole new world. Not long ago, I listened to guitarist Kim Kwang Suk play Kim Hyun Shik’s music. After that, I fell in love with folk songs. When I listen to those songs, it gives me a somewhat healing feeling.”

Singer, actor, entertainer. Within just 3 years of his debut, Dongho is well-versed in all these areas. Look forward to Dongho’s stream of activities in 2011.
