[INFO] 110411 U-KISS’ AJ, Hoon “Charming, Introducing the New Members”
Idol group U-KISS has made their comeback with the release of their 5th mini album entitled ‘Bran New Kiss’. Instead of showing their usual intense music style and strong men images, U-KISS has come back as romantic guys through this album.
The most different thing that can be noticed through this cycle of activities is the recruitment of new members. U-KISS has recruited the former member of Paran’s AJ and once had a solo career’s Hoon into the group, to show their mature side without regret.
As new members, they have already participating actively in the group’s activities. They did feel the burden as they weren’t debuting with a new group.
“I did not feel like carrying a big burden due to the experiences I’ve collected during my previous activities. But I did feel a little bit of burden since I only sing ballad songs before. So, I’m keeping up well to avoid any trouble” said Hoon. Hearing Hoon’s word, with a delight look on his face, leader’s Soohyun added “I’m really proud of him as he’s doing so well.” Hoon replied back “Seems like leader hyung really loves me.”
AJ was part of Paran before. He debuted at a very young age and held activities together with those who are older than him, and he is now going through a new experience by joining U-KISS, which the members are on a similar age range with him.
“It’s true that my opinion wasn’t reflected during my activities with Paran hyungs because I was very young at that time. At that time, I accepted hyungs’ opinions and just followed them as I realized that was the right decision to be taken. Now I will apply all those things that I have learned with U-KISS to help one another developed more.” (AJ)
This is not the first time U-KISS made a change on the members. U-KISS was formerly a 6-member group before adding ‘uljjang’ Kiseop to form a 7-member group. Kiseop had to endure with tons of harsh comments from fans that were bursting their dissatisfaction with the sudden member’s addition.
“I have told them my experience regarding the (fans) reactions when there were new members coming in. At first, we will feel hurt as the fans only cheered for the existing members, but eventually the fans will understand and begin to cheer for us since we were working hard on stage too. So I told the new members not to get hurt too much and just do well.” (Kiseop)
The existing members were asked about the new members’ charm. Soohyun answered without hesitation “Both of them are really talented. They will deliver just like what is expected from them. I think that we’ve learned a lot from them too.”
Kiseop added “First of all, they are so hardworking, and their bright side is really charming. They are as passionate and greedy as the others too.”
Meanwhile, U-KISS who currently is having a full-fledged comeback with a sad hip hop music ‘0330’, is reported to held various activities not only domestically, but overseas as well in countries such as Japan, Thailand, America etc.
