The nature of the K-Pop industry these days is to pit idol groups against each other, and oftentimes, reporters will ask a group about who they feel their rivals are. U-Kiss recently confessed that they felt their #1 opponents were themselves, not other groups.
On September 6th, YTV‘s ‘News ‘n Issue’ interviewed U-Kiss and asked them to name their rivals. The boys sincerely answered that it was themselves.
They explained, “Rather than thinking that we have to beat someone, we’ve always thought that we were our worst opponents,” and that “If we try hard to surpass ourselves, we believe there will be success in our future”.
Members Soohyun, Kevin, and Dongho have indeed been trying to challenge themselves by taking on acting. Soohyun and Kevin participated in the musicals ‘Chorus Line’ and ‘On Air Live’ respectively, while Dongho made appearances in movies and dramas.
Soohyun stated, “While doing the musical, I shed tears because I was reminded of the memories leading up to the debut. It was a good experience.”
Kevin also chimed in with his thoughts on his musical debut, saying, “Despite being my first musical, it was a good experience. My role was that of an idol, which was convenient for me. I want to keep acting.”
Since they’ve never won on a music program before, U-Kiss has made it their goal to win 1st place for the first time with their 2nd official album, ‘Neverland’.
