Since leaving DSP Entertainment in 2010 and releasing their last album, Destination, that same year, SS501 is on hiatus from their activities. Even though there’s never been a statement about their disbandment, neither do they do any new group activity. Since the group is on hiatus, the members currently have their own activities.

Kim Hyun-joong joined KeyEast and started promoting, both as an actor and singer. His first acting project was the Korean drama Playful Kiss, that broadcast on MBC in September, 2010. In that drama, he played the leading role of Baek Seung-Jo. He then released his debut solo album, Break Down, on June 8, 2011, and it exceeded 70,000 pre-ordered copies in ten days. The album received a very impressive response as it was certified gold in Korea and was certified platinum in Taiwan. The album also ranked at #1 in Oricon weekly foreign album charts. In May, 2015, Kim Hyun-joong officially enlisted for his mandatory military service.

Heo Young-saeng and Kim Kyu-jong held a joint fan meeting, Kim Kyu-jong & Heo Young-saeng Story In Seoul on December 4, which continued to Hong Kong, Japan and other countries across Asia. Heo Young-saeng was scheduled to launch his solo singing career on April 28, 2011, but had to postpone it he tore some ligaments on his right hand during dance practice. His solo debut was with the mini album, Let It Go, which was released on May 12, 2011, featuring with Kim Kyu-jong and Hyuna of the girl-group 4minute.

The album ranked at number one on Gaon’s album chart for the week starting on May 8, 2011. Not satisfied in the career as a solo singer, he made his theatrical musical debut in The Three Musketeers in November and December. After that, on December 28, just before the end of the year, Heo released a soundtrack song entitled “The Words On My Lips” for a Korean drama, Fermented Family.

Then, in 2012, Heo joined the cast of I Need a Fairy (or Sent From Heaven), a KBS2 sitcom, in episode 23, playing the role of Heo Young Saeng/Kaki. A month later, he released a soundtrack for the drama Love Song. Heo Young-Saeng enlisted in the army on October 31, 2013. After serving his mandatory military service as a police officer, he was discharged on July 30, 2015.

Kim Kyu-jong made his musical debut in Goong: Musical, playing the lead role of Crown Prince Lee Shin, in Kyoto, Japan, from June 11 to July 1. He debuted as a solo artist in September, 2011, with mini album Turn Me On. The album features rap by Heo Young-saeng in the dance track “My Love”, and Yang Jiwon of Spica in the Yesterday music video.

On July 23, Kim reported to the recruit training center of the 35th division in Jeonju, North Jeolla Province, for four weeks of basic training. They further explained that he was originally exempted because he was a hepatitis B carrier. However, since there was a change in the conscription law, he was eligible to serve non-active duty as a public service worker. On July 18, Kim released a limited edition, and, later on, a normal edition, mini-album Meet Me Again, dedicated to his fans before his enlistment.

Park Jung-min’s comeback single, Not Alone, was originally planned to be released on November 25, 2010, but was pushed back to January 20, 2011. He subsequently released his first mini-album, The, Park Jung Min, on April 1, 2011. Park was cast in a Japanese musical Bonds Of Boys as an exchange student from November 18 to 23, 2011. He also expanded his experience in acting by being cast in the Japanese drama, Love Song in August. He contributed to KBS2’s The Princess’ Man‘s OST in August, where he sang “Missing You”, composed by Park Jung Wook.

Kim Hyung-jun signed with Avex Entertainment for his Japanese activities in January 2011. On March 8, 2011, Kim finally released his debut solo mini album, My Girl, with music videos for the two lead tracks “oH! aH!” and “Girl”, in which Park Jung-min visited him during the music video shoot for the latter.

A Japanese version was released on April 6, 2011, with two bonus tracks of Japanese versions of the two lead tracks. On July 27, Kim released his first Japanese single, Long Night. In October, 2011, Kim made his theater debut in the romantic comedy musical Caffeine, where he played as a barista. After his acting debut on Black City, Kim starred in his first main lead role in the KBS romantic comedy series, My Shining Girl in March, playing the role of “Kang-min”.
