U-KISS’ AJ will temporarily be halting his activities as a singer to attend to his studies.
NH Media made the announcement through its homepage on July 29 saying,
“Previously in a press release we had announced AJ had been accepted to
America’s Columbia University. In relation with this, for his studies
abroad in America U-KISS’ upcoming Japan concert will be AJ’s last
activity with U-KISS and he will temporarily be leaving U-KISS. “
Media added, “[AJ’s] temporarily halting of activities with U-KISS does
not mean he is leaving the group but will temporarily be absent from
the group for approximately five months while he is [studying] in
America and plans to return to U-KISS and its activities in the
beginning of next year.”
The agency also apologized AJ wouldn’t
be able to say goodbye to his fans in Korea through activities here
saying his entrance period and U-KISS’ activities in Japan happened to
fit together and asked fans continue to send AJ their encouragements
until he returns to U-KISS.
