Though my recovery period is set to be a bit long, I hope to greet you again soon with a smile.

NH Media gave a new update on U-KISS’s Kiseop on September 12 and emphasized that the idol’s health and recovery is their top priority.
An agency representative stated, “Kiseop has been focusing on receiving treatment and monitoring his injuries at the hospital. His condition has definitely improved since his injury.” The idol suffered second degree burns when a smoke emitter exploded on the set of a music video he was filming. Fragments of the emitter became lodged in his body and he was soon rushed to the hospital. Kiseop is currently resting at home and continuing his outpatient treatment.
When asked about U-KISS’s future comeback plans, NH Media replied that they have temporarily been put on hold to ensure that Kiseop makes a full recovery. The representative explained, “We don’t have any concrete comeback plans as of now, but we will announce them once they are confirmed. What’s important right now is that Kiseop suffered an injury, and his recovery is our top priority.”
We hope Kiseop rests well and has a full recovery soon!
