On March 8th, NH Media stated, “We will be making public the details on this second member by this week. Paran’s maknae, AJ, was chosen as the second member and will be joining U-Kiss within the month.”
Although AJ debuted with Paran, his members left for the army while others pursued solo activities, leading to the group’s virtual disbandment. AJ was said to have been attending school while preparing to debut again as a singer, but this time, he’ll grab his break through U-Kiss.
With the attention that Hoon has been receiving, NH Media expects AJ to receive just as much once further details are unveiled.
Earlier, NH Media declared that U-Kiss would be switching out members for the New Year. After the departures of members Kim Kibum and Alexander late last month, the group’s newest addition has been unveiled today.
Named ‘Hoon’, U-Kiss’ newest member was born in 1991 and is currently a theater major at Dong Guk University. He was selected for his tall height of 180 cm, handsome looks, and impressive vocal talent. Hoon’s interests in music and acting began at a young age, and it’s reported that he underwent rigorous training to cultivate the talents for both a singing and acting career.
Hoon is also a Tae Kwon Do athlete, and briefly made a cameo in SBS’s “Athena” as a bodyguard for the president.
Representatives of NH Media stated, “The new member to take the place of Kim Kibum and Alexander is Hoon. Throughout the times, there’s been a lot of happiness, but we felt there there was a need for a change in the team. After a long discussion, we came to the decision of switching out the members.”
Hoon is the first out of two members who will be joining the group in the upcoming months, as U-Kiss prepares for their activities for both Korea and overseas.
Their comeback album is scheduled to drop mid-March, but until then, fans can anticipate the reveal of the second member, as well as various promotional and UCC teasers.
