U-KISS’s Current And Former Members Celebrate 10th Debut Anniversary
It has been ten years since U-KISS’s debut!
Soohyun, Eli, Kevin, Alexander, Kibum, and Dongho debuted as U-KISS on August 28, 2008 with “Not Young.” After various member changes, the group currently consists of Soohyun, Eli, Kiseop, Hoon, and Jun.
On August 28, the group’s Instagram shared a post in celebration and revealed a photo of the current members visiting an advertisement that fans prepared at a subway station. Soohyun is not present as he is currently serving in the military.
Eli posted the group photo in front of the advertisement and wittily wrote through the hashtag, “Let’s do more ballads please. My back and knees can’t take any more dance songs.”

While celebrating anniversary is good, I was inspired by what Pastor Tanchi (CCF Church) said about ‘anniversary’ last Sunday. Anniversary could be a problem because: 1. You become PROUD. Pride increases along with the years counted. 2. You forget your PURPOSE. As you count the years, you tempt to lose your original purpose. Here, I ask God to keep me humble n to always remind me about my PURPOSE. What is my purpose? Before I entered showbiz, I prayed to God to give me the influential power so that I can spread gospel to the youth, n to be the living testimony to show Christ’s love. The past ten years have been my journey. �de42 ——————————————————————————— It’s been a GOOD ten years. I won’t lie… it wasn’t easy. It was one tough decade. Had good memories with my members, n had my hell-like solo times after. Many who r cut off from the root don’t really survive. I’m just glad enough that I survived, n am still surviving. I believe this is what God has been doing – to train me n to build me with compassion. Off the root I became one good fruit, I guess, n I hope as a 선배/senior, I could guide the younger idols in this industry to be ‘healthy’ fruits too, if that’s God’s will. ——————————————————————————— Last but not the least, most importantly, thank you all KISS-ME and Xanderettes for this amazing one decade. Honestly, I gave up before you guys did… But because you guys didn’t give up on me, I stood up and walked until now. Thank you so much for this wonderful bond we have. Words can’t express all my feelings n I’m sure you know what I mean. 진심으로 감사하고 사랑해요! 皆さん, どうも ありがと! 愛してる! 謝謝大家的支持! 愛你們! Salamat po! Gracias! Obrigado!❤️ 앞으로도 잘 부탁 드립니다!^^ ——————————————————————————— All the glory to GOD! And may the Lord BLESS our amazingly mysterious journey ahead! Hope the other members also find their own sweet way! 화이팅!!! Let our journey continue… #Xander #UKISS #10Years #10thAnniversary #KissMe #Xanderettes #AllTheGloryToGod
Congratulations to U-KISS on a wonderful decade!
