Departure From U-Kiss and NH Media


On May 16, 2019, NH Media announced the very shocking news that Kiseop’s contract with NH Media had expired and he had decided not to renew it, along with fellow U-KISS member Eli. This decision, of course, brought some pros and contras to it.

Later, on August 1, 2019, Kiseop announced through his Instagram that he would be marrying model/actress Jung Yu-na. The decision about his departure from U-Kiss and NH media may be because of his desire to enter a new chapter of life by marrying Jung Yu-na.
