Hello. This is U-KISS’s Hoon.
I’ve mustered the courage to write this because there’s news that I want to personally share with fans. After pondering for a long time how to share this, although I feel nervous, I will try to write letter by letter.
By sharing this news, more than anything, I worry that my fans who cherish me more than anyone might feel upset. Since my fans’ love and support is the biggest reason why I’m able to be here today, I feel that much more careful.
However, I think it’s right that I share life’s important decisions with fans. While you must have been surprised at this sudden news, this is a road I’ve decided on after a lot of consideration, so with the belief that you will send support and blessings, I’m getting up the courage to say this.
To be honest, I have a girlfriend I’m dating. I want to introduce her for the first time through this letter. Her name is Hwang Ji Seon and she may be someone you all already know through her wide variety of promotions. I grew determined to spend forever with the person who more than anything, respects my work, helps my family, and really, really cherishes the fans who love and support me, so we will be holding a wedding on May 29.
Although I’m awaiting a new start, I promise that I am not suddenly stopping or giving up as U-KISS’s Hoon. I will showcase an image that better repays the love and support I’ve received until now. Through this letter, I also want to say thank you again to my U-KISS members and Tango Music family who supported my decision and wished for my happiness, more than anyone else.
I sincerely thank you for reading my long letter. In the future, I will become a U-KISS’s Hoon who showcases an unchanging image. Thank you.
Hoon first debuted as a ballad singer in 2009 with his birth name, Yeo Hoon Min. Two years later, he joined U-KISS as the group’s lead vocalist. Earlier this year, Hoon and his fellow U-KISS members Soohyun and Kiseop signed new contracts with Tango Music.
Hoon’s fiancée Hwang Ji Seon debuted as an original member of Girl’s Day in 2010. However, she left the group after two months. The following year, she debuted as JN in New.F.O and eventually competed on KBS’s idol audition show “The Unit.” In 2018, Hwang Ji Seon debuted as a member of S#aFLA.
Congratulations to the couple!
