NH Media dropped comeback info for U-Kiss this weekend, but other news concerning the group has sparked mixed feelings from their fans. On one hand, the group will make a comeback as early as mid-September. On the other, member AJ will be attending college in the US and will be on hiatus from U-Kiss for the rest of the year.U-Kiss member AJ was accepted into the prestigious Ivy league Colombia University and will be attending this fall, but to be clear, he will not be permanently leaving the group. He is just taking a five-month break to focus on his studies before he returns to K-pop early next year. His last performance with the group was on July 29 in Japan, the final concert on U-Kiss’ A Shared Dream tour. Word is though, that he may also perform at the A-Nation Stadium Fes. in Osaka, Japan on August 26, but it’ll be a long shot so close to move-in day at the university.
Officials at NH disclosed that U-Kiss’ new album is in progress, but no further details regarding the concept or format (studio or min-album) have been revealed. We’ll have to get closer to the actual comeback date for teasers and hints to start appearing for more information. Until then, U-Kiss is currently in Japan promoting their latest single “Dear My Friend.” As previously mentioned, they just concluded their 25-day concert series A Shared Dream, which began on July 5.
