U-KISS Kiseop quietly enlisted on Thursday without any special event.
On Thursday U-KISS Kiseop enlisted at the Nonsan Army Training Center with no special event, but he did say goodbye to fans. In a handwritten letter that he uploaded on Instagram, he talked about the staff and fans who have been with the group for the past ten years.
“It’s been 10 years since I’ve been active with U-KISS,” and “For 10 years I have been running with the members, our staff, and our fans,” he wrote. Continuing, he mentions that he is a bit embarrassed by his late enlistment and that he is lacking in many ways. Even so, he plans to return after completing his training and service sincerely.
After completing basic training, Kiseop will take on the role of a social service worker. Because of spinal disc issues, the singer will not be able to become an active duty soldier. Notably, he is the third member from his group to enter the military following member Soohyung and Hoon, the latter of which entered earlier this week. The remaining members Eli, who is American, and Jun who is much younger, will focus on individual activities.
Meanwhile, Kiseop has been active in both Korea and Japan. Late last year, his Japanese Christmas album Glory topped the Oricon chart. Months before, he and Hoon formed a unite and released a successful Japanese single.
