So, around a month and a half ago we announced that we were invited on the set of U-Kiss’ new music video. And then, after our announcement, we were pretty silent about the whole thing, not because we’re meanies, but because we had to wait for U-Kiss to release their song and video before we could release the behind the scenes footage. Couldn’t be spoiling the surprises from their music video, right? And now it’s finally out! If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out here:

 

We were lucky enough not only to be able to interview U-Kiss at this time, but also to get a look at what shooting a music video is like. There are lots of things going on that we didn’t talk about in the interview or our little talk during the behind the scenes footage (which is embedded below and in the playlist above). So, we’d like to talk about some of those things here:

1) Kevin’s still as nice as ever: for starters, we were really surprised that we were invited to begin with, especially considering how thoroughly we ripped into “Believe.” I mean, we know that we weren’t being mean-spirited, and that we like U-Kiss’ music usually, but would U-Kiss and their management know that as well? So, when we actually got to the set, right before we walked into the building, which was in a pretty isolated part in Korea, the thought flickered in our minds: “is this the place that we are coming to die?” What if they’re all waiting with hacksaws? Hahaha! No! They wouldn’t do that, right? *gulp*

But they didn’t kill us! We walked in and saw everyone already busy at work. After a short while, Kevin came out of the change room and cheerfully waved and happily stood beside us and chatted with us for a while. We talked about how there are different sounding songs for different audiences, and this song here, “Stop Girl,” is made for more Western sensibilities. We totally agree, because it’s A LOOOOT better than their last song. In fact, I think it might be Simon’s favourite song of theirs since “Shut Up”. Martina is still loving “Neverland”.

Anyhow, Kevin bore us no animosity whatsoever. We had a good catch up on what everyone had been up to and how hard they have been working (seriously, we still think they need a vacation), and he also talked about the fact that they didn’t realize until they watched our Kpop Music Monday that, indeed, they looked homeless. And he had a good laugh about it. YAY! See angry kpop fans? Members of your favourite groups can understand when something is just a joke and they can even laugh along with it. That makes us really really happy. We remember how much respect we had for AJ when he first met us on Jeju Island for the Inkigayo concert and he called us out on making fun of his math lyrics. Yet, after that he hung around and chatted with us with a big smile on his face and no anger whatsoever. This time around we had a chance to chat more with Eli too, and he was also really fun and awesomely nice. Although there is a bit of a language barrier with the other members of U-Kiss, the U-Kiss boys are still one of the absolute nicest kpop groups we’ve had the chance to meet, so altogether we just want to group hug the whole lot of U-Kiss. GROUP HUG!!!! *Mordney sneaks into the hug* What the!?? GET OUT OF HERE MORDNEY!!!

We’re going to talk about the video more tomorrow for Kpop Music Monday, so we won’t give our opinions here, but we’re just happy that A) Kevin’s really nice, still, and B) They’ve gone beyond videos of homelessness. Huzzah!

2) How the hell does every group not hate their own music by now? Let me elaborate on this: yes, it’s an awesome song, and we don’t hate it at all. It’s still quite awesome to us. But, when we were there on set, the song was played non-stop, over and over again, as the scenes were shot, reshot, taken from different angles, and more angles, and even more angles. In between the takes, the makeup crew would rush over and furiously fan the sweat off their brows and touch up their makeup and then scurry out of the shot again before it started the cycle anew. I know for us, for Music Monday, when we’re editing our videos we almost HATE them by the time we’re done, because we’re looking at the same footage of ourselves for a few hours. Here, though, it’s the same song ALL DAY LONG. And I imagine when they practice the dance, it’s the same song all month long. That’s pretty intense. Anyhow, the point of this paragraph is less to say that U-Kiss should hate their song and more to say that we’re amazed at how much work goes into making a video and how often scenes are shot and reshot to get it just right.

3) The mass amount of people working behind the scenes is totally insane. The camera crew and the huge rig, the directors watching the scenes, the makeup artists, the stage hands cleaning the floor to prevent unwanted footprint dust, the people removing and re-building the set as soon as the shot is finally finished, the stage hands manually turning the lights to get the wanted effect…it’s crazy busy! Seriously: while they were shooting the video on one wall, the crew was dismantling the setup on the other wall and building a new one.

And in between the shots, the members that aren’t filming are either sleeping, or practicing with the choreographer, or getting their makeup touched up. Kevin was the only one to greet us when we first came onto set because he told us he filmed his solo shots very very early in the morning, and then went to sleep. So now the other members are just getting ready to film their shots, which is why we don’t have footage of all the members doing their solo shots. So they have to rotate between sleeping and filming, and then being well rested enough to do the final filming of them altogether as one group. Crazy beans!

This is why I really hate it when people say, “oh kpop is so easy and has no talent, anyone can do it.” WRONG. The members of all the kpop groups are insanely talented, not just for their dancing and singing abilities, but with their ability to discipline themselves and persevere through insane work schedules. They have to be able to sleep on cue, wake up on cue, and be bright eyed and bushy tailed whenever it requires, and that’s something a lot of us are unable to do. When people are cranky and tired, it’s like, WATCH OUT WORLD GARRHHHHH DINOSAUR SCREAM CRANKYPANTS MCGEE GIVE ME COFFEE OR I’LL RIP YOUR THROAT OUT ARGHHHH FASTER I SAID FASTER WHERE IS IT ARRRHHHHHH WHO IS MAKING THAT TICKING SOUND WITH THEIR PEN IN CLASS I’LL KILL YOU AND STOP BREATHING SO LOUDLY YOU LOUD BREATHER YOU ARHHHHHH BABY ON AN AIRPLANE AGHHRHHRHHRHHRHHRHR TURN OF THE RADIO I HATE THAT DJ TRAFFFIC JAMM NOOOOOOOOOO THE SUBWAY IS SO LATE ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEE *FLIPS A TABLE* !!!!! Not that we’re like that. *shifty eyes* I do love my coffee.

Anyhow, we divided the interview from the Behind the Scenes footage, and we added it all to the playlist above, so make sure you check it out!

 

Also, someone needs to get that Mordney off set. He’s a bit creepy.

Oh yes, and very importantly, U-Kiss were also nice enough to give us a bunch of signed copies of their new album! What are we gonna do with them all? We’re not gonna keep them for ourselves (maybe just one…) of course, but give them to you guise! If you want to win them, here’s what you gotta do:

    Well there are many things I like about U-Kiss, and I don’t think
    this text box will let me type them all up. However, one of the things that I like
    the most about U-Kiss is that I found out about them through Eat Your Kimchi. I
    had never listened to K-POP until I discovered Eat Your Kimchi this past March.
    I was randomly looking through some videos when I came across the first
    interview you had with U-Kiss . When I heard AJ mention the r squared pi thing,
    I thought it was funny so I immediately looked up their song 0330. After
    listening to it I looked up more of their songs and became really addicted and I
    had no idea I was going to love K-POP so much. I sometimes feel bad for my
    roommate who has to deal with me *fangirling* over K-POP boy bands, such as
    U-Kiss. U-Kiss along with you,(Simon, Martina, Spudgy, and (now male) Dr.
    Meemersworth) have opened my eyes to music I never thought I would be listening
    to and have also made me aware of the possibilities that the world has to
    offer. Such that, I plan to study abroad in South Korea and learn more about
    the Korean culture. While this may seem very absurd, U-Kiss plays a huge role
    in the fact that not only do I plan to study abroad, but the fact that I’m in
    college today. Since, U-Kiss is constantly encouraging their fans to follow their
    dreams and stay strong, and when I thought no one believed in me to continue my
    dreams, U-Kiss made it pretty clear that I should not do this for anyone but
    myself. So thank you U-Kiss for allowing me to fight for what I want, and thank
    you (Eat Your Kimchi Family) for allowing me to discover these talented boys
    and other K-POP artists and showing me a music world beyond what I am exposed
    to here in the United States.

  3. So sorry for the triple post! I was having technical difficulties!

  4. I watched Weekly Idol with U-Kiss yesterday and when I found out that Dongho’s hobby is knitting I was just blown away. A guy who can knit! How extraordinary is this! It brings him to a new level of awesomeness :D

They’re very precious to me & I’ll never ever stop loving them ~♥

    There are so many reasons to love U-Kiss! Their music is incredible, and they are constantly progressing with their sound and videos. Every time they come out with a new song and video, it is evident that they have matured. It’s as if they even take your (eyk’s) opinions into consideration when making the next video and song. “Stop Girl” really shows how much they’ve paid attention to their English, and even given the longer English sections to their English speaking members. Their dance is also very mature and incorporates a lot of male and female dance interaction that actually makes sense with the song. Besides their overall maturation in music and video, U-Kiss seem like such down-to-earth people! The fact that they hardly slept and still continued to work, as well as include a special interview for eyk and their fans really shows how much they care about their fans and how hard working they are. After all of that, they were still able to be cheerful and humble. That really gives a great impression of them! All in all, U-Kiss is just amazing, and they really deserve everything they have and a lot more! U-KISS FIGHTING!! And thank you eyk for going there and giving us fans such a wonderful/ special treat!

    My favourite's part the part in which UKISS sang,"Stop Girl, in the name of love," reason being that this 7 words when sang, made you really have the feeling when you have been abandoned and hurt by your loved one. Furthermore, its UKISS, 7 member group, 7th Mini Album, and the chorus is exactly made up of 7 words, "Stop Girl, in the name of love." :) Thank You! I hope I can be the album's KISSME! :)

    I’ve watched the interview more that a few times now, and I keep finding it really adorable the way Kevin says “Oh yeah!” around the 8:35 mark. Have no idea why I find it to be so adorable. ^_^

    My reasons to why I love U-Kiss are because of just small things like this 05:52 “howdie” … I live in Texas, but used to live in VA and whenever I talk to my friends they go like that…. lol not everyone in Texas says that Kevin xD06:57 “oh yeah” AJ… kevin forgot about you lol jk08:47 Dongho so cuteee that make me smile They can just act like little kids and be all cute out of nowhere. They do things and look like they are so down to earth and don’t act like they are better than anyone.

    I can’t even explain why I love Ukiss so much. They weren’t my first kpop group, none of them are my ultimate ultimate bias (not to say I don’t love love love the members), and my favorite kpop song (if I had to pick right now) isn’t by them. And yet, I feel this strong need to support them. I buy their music, I always vote for them here, I try to watch their videos as often as possible to help raise views. And I really don’t know why. If I really try to think up a reason the best thing I can say is that they just feel so real in comparison to other groups and they work so hard. And though I know a lot of groups haven’t won an award, I feel its more heartbreaking that Ukiss hasn’t gotten that yet.

    There are some things that I can say that make Ukiss special to me. One, they have the first and only kpop song that has ever made me cry. The first time I listened to their song ‘Someday’ it was a Youtube video that had English subtitles. And for some reason the lyrics, the feeling of that song, the passion in their voices…it just got to me. I started to cry. But in a good way, with a smile on my face and everything. That is actually my all time favorite Ukiss song, I love the meaning behind it. Two…ok, I lied. I’ve cried to other songs, but less because of the song and more from what was going on around me. This past April my grandpa passed away. I had their Neverland cd playing in my car, so the next morning the song ‘Baby Don’t Cry’ came on. I only know English, so the lyrics I understood had a different meaning entirely to me at that moment. They sang “So baby don’t cry baby tell me why You’ leaving me tonight you’ leaving me tonight.” To me, it related to my grandpa and I cried. Once again in a good way. I had cried the night before when I heard the news, but I was trying to be strong and not cry. This song helped me get it all out. And the song ‘Take Me Away’, that one really got me. “Somebody take me away ‘Cause I can’t take this pain,” that line pretty much explained how I felt. And I’m really thankful for those songs letting me be able to cry like that. As I said, I needed it. They were the most helpful when my grandma passed away later on in the year because I had been out of town when it happened. It didn’t feel real so I never really cried (besides, I found out while standing in the middle of Manhattan, not really ideal for break downs lol). I just listened to them when I got back home and was lying in my own bed and I cried myself to sleep.

    Now to be less depressing, although it isn’t depressing to me, I smile when I think about how those songs helped me. I think these boys are hilarious. I think they all have beautiful voices. They can dance very well. They’re attractive too. I just love them all for no real reason beyond that I just do, because they are them.And thats the best answer I can give.

    This is mine and my friends’ entry about why we love U-KISS, incorporated into a parody of their song Stop Girl. J We originally made an actual performance video but due to internet and uploading problems we were unable to get the video up in time. Instead, we’ll be sending the lyrics to the song, which were incredibly fun to write and sing. We love you eatyourkimchi & U-KISS! <3

  14. they are talented and as a new fan u-kiss i hope to see more and for Simon and Martina you guys are amazing every time i watch your videos it makes me want to come to Korea more and more and being from Toronto as well i see how well you are doing for your selves and it give me more strength with in me to make that an end result once i graduate from University so thanks

  15. I love ukiss because they are sexy and amazing singers/dancers. I love their personalities, they are so kind with their fans and 3 of them can speak english! Ukiss members are so hardworking, they released so many mv´s this year, they don´t give up and i’m sure that they will win an award soon. I also love their fandom name, it sounds good. They are very humble and they are frendly with each other, this makes me so happy. I wish them the best. youtube marianagaara

  16. What I like the most about U-KISS… I like that they’re not perfect and they’re not afraid of showing their imperfect side. That they know what is their weakest point and they work hard to change it into their strong point. That despite the fact that they sometimes (ok, almost all the time) behave quite… childishly… *cough cough* That when it’s time for being serious they can change their attitude 180 degrees. That they’re not afraid of being themselves. That no matter what they will work hard to achieve what they want to. That they never give up. That they care mostly about others than themselves. That they never disappoint. That everything they do, they do well. That they aren’t haughty. That despite the fact that they’re far away from me I feel like they’re so close. That their sense of humour is just like min. That they’re funny and nice. That their tweets are so sweet. That they make me feel needed. That with them my life has more powerful colors. That they’re just like an older brothers to me, who for mainly have fun of everything, but at the same time work hard and also have this kind of useful knowledge about the life, that helped me many times. That thanks to them I was able to meet a lot of people, who now are my friends. That they’re just like a family to me. That they made me love them so much.

    But all these reasons come down to one sentence – WHAT I LIKE THE MOST ABOUT U-KISS, IS THAT THEY’RE… U-KISS.

  17. I love UKISS because they are UKISS. There isnt anything more to say. UKISS is always working hard, for Kissmes and themselves. Theyre one of the most underrated bands in the history of kpop. Their warm and bright personalities also made me love UKISS. Even though they havent won anything, they continue to push an are one of the happiest/craziest bands I know. Their music is as amazing as they personality too. Whenever Im unhappy, I just listen to their music. When i feel like giving up or crying, think of UKISS and their tough times which reminds me to smile and keep going. Is there anymore to say about this band? ♥ Saranghae UKISS! Fighting~!

  18. What i like about Ukiss is.. their determination, they are a role model to anyone who needs strength. They have tought me to continue fightin for my dreams, to no loose hope. They are my everyday power.

    But i think that other important charecteristic is that for me they dont look as some kind of unachievable beings, they have too many qualities that for sure they can be but their kindness, humility, etc just makes me feel like they are more human than nobody else…

  19. Before I
    start rambling (which I will, and I apologize in advance), let me just say that
    the first time I really paid attention to U-Kiss was May 1st 2011, because of
    you guys! I remember watching that impromptu interview and being completely
    taken over by their kindness and friendly personalities – especially Kevin’s.

    Anyway,
    before I found U-Kiss I wasn’t at my best. Times were rough and everything
    kinda sucked. And then I listened to Someday. That song pulled me in like a
    magnet, and turned me into an emotional mess the first few times because of how
    much impact the lyrics had on me.

    I decided
    to keep up with the group during the Neverland era. Watching them on music
    shows sparked my curiosity, so I went back and watched their old shows…
    seeing how fun they were and learning certain things about the member’s
    personalities made me feel much closer to them. After catching up on everything
    there was to know about the group, I concluded that there were a lot of things
    I liked about them. I could mention the obvious ones – music, talent,
    personality, ubiquity, Kev—*cough* I mean what. *innocent face*

    But what I
    admire the most about U-Kiss is how they never stop smiling. Seeing them give
    their all to try and show everyone how very talented they are makes us Kiss Mes
    feel incredibly proud. But we can’t help but feel they don’t always get the
    recognition they deserve, which can bring us fans down at times. Yet they keep
    their chins up, and keep being the joyful kids we know they are. No matter what
    life gives them, they always take the risks necessary to achieve the goals
    they’ve set for themselves and face every day with a big smile. They never lose
    that glow, regardless of how tired they may be.

    And it’s
    that exactly that made me grow so fond of U-Kiss. Unlike most groups, who I listen to for fun, because their songs are entertaining, I like U-Kiss
    because of the passion they put into everything. The hard work, the smiles, the
    kindness, the effort. The dream chasing, the “willingness to die on stage”.
    There are plenty of reasons for me to like a K-Pop group, but nothing compares
    to the feeling of having someone to look up to.

    They’ve
    given me a lot to be thankful for. I found a home in the fandom – and I call it
    home because it feels just like one. Mostly everyone I know is down to earth and
    humble, as if we’ve all learned it from them. I used to get sad by the thought
    of them not winning awards, or being shadowed by other groups when they
    promote in Korea, but I don’t so much anymore. At some point I realized, as I’m
    sure they have as well, that that stuff doesn’t mean anything when you consider
    the bigger picture.

    Their
    struggles speak to me on a personal level, and constantly remind me that no
    matter what, I need to keep my head held high and fight through all the bad
    moments, because “someday, the day to smile will come”. They’ve
    taught me to be patient, to face hardships with a grin and get up after all the
    trips and falls, no matter how big the bruises and the scratches might be. :)

    I know I’m pretty much on the other side of the world (hello from Portugal, by the way!),
    but still they manage to change my life every day. Chances are slim that I’ll
    ever get to meet them, but I hope one day they’ll know, one way or another, how
    much of an impact they’ve had on my life. More than anything in the world, I
    want them to know that even though they may not be winning awards left and
    right like other groups, they’re leaving a huge mark on some of us fans, and
    nothing in the world should be more precious than that.

  20. I can’t call myself an expert on k-pop business, because I’ve been there for too little of time. But U-Kiss was my second discovere group, which just dragged me more deep and more seriously into the abyss of k-pop. I just love to see their smiling faces, to hear them laugh.. So the main thing, that I love about U-Kiss, is their viral smile, that can make me smile too even in the darkest days ^^

    (YT: chemilija)

  21. I can’t decide what is what I like the most about U-Kiss. Can I choose EVERYTHING? They are one of the most hardworking Kpop groups out there. They give their all since debut day with every performance, song, cf, interview, etc. They are super duper down to earth and humble. I definitely started liking them because of you both. I remember when you met Kevin and he was so excited because he watched your videos, not that many artists do that. He was your fan. They were so friendly and with great energy. What i like the most about them is that I believe if I were to meet them randomly on the street and call out their names, they would greet me as a friend who they’ve known for a super long time, that is how they treat their fans. They deserve more recognition than what they currently have.

  22. I can’t decide what is what I like the most about U-Kiss. Can I choose EVERYTHING? They are one of the most hardworking Kpop groups out there. They give their all since debut day with every performance, song, cf, interview, etc. They are super duper down to earth and humble. I definitely started liking them because of you both. I remember when you met Kevin and he was so excited because he watched your videos, not that many artists do that. He was your fan. They were so friendly and with great energy. What i like the most about them is that I believe if I were to meet them randomly on the street and call out their names, they would greet me as a friend who they’ve known for a super long time, that is how they treat their fans. They deserve more recognition than what they currently have.

    What I like about U-Kiss??
    I’m not really good with words, but here we go…

    First, I’m really touched reading so many lovable comments from Kissmes :)
    About U-Kiss, when I started to get into K-pop I didn’t pay attention to them..Why WHY?? lol But I got interested with Shut Up, I really liked it!!
    After that I watched variety shows, interview etc.. and without even notice I got really attached to them. It’s been a long time since I know them and my love for them, unlike happened with other kpop bands, is not wavering but getting stronger. Every comeback I love them more.
    The best thing about loving these boys so much is that I met a lot of other kissmes!! We’re all like a family, and it’s really amazing how everyone of us work so hard to make our boys happy..that makes me happy too :)

    I hope U-Kiss can feel all the love from international Kissmes, even if we are miles and miles away, living somewhere nobody knows about (like me…¬¬) We Love U-Kiss!!!

  24. What I like the most about U-KISS is the fact that they are extremely hard workers and very down-to-earth.
    They take criticism very well, I remember watching the interview at Jeju Island, and they just joked around about the 0330 Kpop Music Monday with no hard feelings. They also took the time to talk with you two back then, and invited you to their music video filming. Again, they did this with no hard feelings about the Believe Kpop Music Monday. They really give fans an example to follow, we should all learn to take criticism gracefully. This is how they are down-to-earth.
    Sometimes I have to wonder how they deal with their hectic schedules. They released DoraDora, and not to long after, they released Believe. As soon as they were finished promoting Believe they went to Japan for a little over a month, and promoted Dear My Friend as well as A Shared Dream. As soon as they were done in Japan, they went back to Korea and released Stop Girl. I had no idea filming a music video took as long as you two have informed us. And for them to do this and still smile at the camera is still something admirable. They are my model to follow when it comes to work ethic.
    I don’t know if Kevin, Eli, and/or AJ will get to see this, but I appreciate the hard work that all of U-KISS does to create music. I’m not going to say that you guys should take a break, because if it is your decision to work with this much intensity, I will respect that. But I do wish you the best of luck, and please take care of yourselves. I will continue to support you guys in the future with as much dedication as U-KISS has shown.

  25. What I like about U-KISS is their determination. U-KISS debuted the same year as SHINee and in comparison…well you know without even having to say more. Although U-KISS came from a small company they pushed to try and make a name for themselves, as does all kpop groups that debut. However, in recent years with the influx of debuting groups if you are not successful in anyway within the first year you are dropped from all radars and no one hears from you again. U-KISS tries to defy that and push to create good music and entertaining variety shows. They like other groups have been subject to member changes and while some groups use this to an advantage others end up not making any difference. In the end, U-KISS has been through so much and if they wanted to they could probably just give up the music business and leave pursuing other activities without much effect to the industry. However, they choose not to and instead choose to fight for their spot in the Hallyu Wave. They never give up. Their determination to do well and produce music for their fans is stronger than their will to give up and for that I show deep appreciation for U-KISS. Instead of giving in their go on with their heads held high giving no f*cks to haters and antis. They know who they are and won’t turn their backs no matter how rough it may get.

  26. What I like about UKISS… More like.. LOVE about UKISS?! I love their personalities, their humour, their kindness and how loving they all seem to be, how their music makes me want to have a song on repeat for 5 days 9am – 11pm which never has happened to me before, how they inspire me everyday to keep singing and get better, I love how they so gracefully move across the dance floor all in sync, how they also inspire me to dance. And I am also very grateful to them for the fact that they’re the reason I’m still singing everyday since I was about to give up. I truly wish they were my friends. ♥♥ That’s not all but it’ll have to do… Really do wish you pick me as one of the winners =] but knowing my own luck…. Dot dot dot xD

    Thank you for conducting the interview! Kiss Mes really appreciate the way you treat UKISS and thank you for a wonderful review for Stop Girl :)

  28. I love ukiss because they are sexy and amazing singers/dancers. I love their personalities, they are so kind with their fans and 3 of them can speak english! Ukiss members are so hardworking, they released so many mv´s this year, they don´t give up and i’m sure that they will win an award soon. I also love their fandon name, it sounds good. They are very humble and they are frendly with each other, this makes me so happy. I wish them the best. my youtube name is marianagaara

  30. What I love most about UKISS is their ATTITUDE, their moral character as a whole :) Every Kissme and even you guys , Simon and Martina saw that good point in them :) They’re exceptionally kind hearted people despite their extraordinary talents and popularity :) Their fan service is extremely touching and makes you love them even more :) Not every idol would ALWAYS make their fans feel like a family. The GRATITUDE they always make us feel. Every ‘ saranghae’ ‘ I love you kiss me ‘ gives ineffable feelings of gratitude and love towards them as well :) Aside from the looks , charisma and talents , they have this thing that we , and other people cannot explain. Like a natural CHARM of an angel from heaven :) They are more of a family than an Idol for me , that’s because of what they show people, us :) More than what a band / group can do , fans get deeply attached to them through the HEART , and UKISS has that pure heart that can capture tons of people :) That feeling of knowing each other, like for your whole lifetime already , is a very unique ability, and UKISS has that :) I believe that their kindness and love would bring them farther than what the most talented people could reach. Because it’s the inside that matters most :) I love UKISS for that , they’ll be forever our family , miles away , but just a heart away to reach them <3 I love UKISS ! :3 :)))))

    I love U-KISS because even though they went through so much hardship, they’re still fighting and standing strong! Also, they inspire me to achieve my dreams and motivate me to become a better person by always trying and never give up, like what they did! I’m sure they didn’t just motivate myself, but many other KISSMEs out there! + They have the most approachable and down to Earth personalities ever! You guys have witnessed it yeah? :P ♥

    What I love most about U-Kiss: Their friendship & how they’re very close with each other & how they’ll never give up for their goals [They're very inspirational] & I love each one of their personalities & the way they love their fans so much that I can actually feel their love for me as a KissMe & how their music makes me energetic & just seeing them smiling & happy makes me feel so happy no matter what I’ve been through the day. They’re very precious to me & I’ll never ever stop loving them ~♥

  33. I don’t think I could truly express what U-Kiss means to me, but I will try. To me they are perfect in the most imperfect way. Bright personalities that make me smile even when I’m having the worst day. I just love seeing them happy. They don’t seem like just k-pop idols to me. They are more real. I feel like I could walk by one of them on my street, greet them like an old friend, telling them to stay healthy. U-Kiss, if you’re reading this, I hope u find happiness in everything you do and keep smiling. I love you <3 – Jamad from Canada (youtube: DaBomb673)

  34. U-KISS really is an amazing group. In the K-pop sphere where groups are easily disregarded or forgotten for their lack of originality or simply with the passage of time, U-KISS has worked from the bottom up and established themselves as one of the most internationally recognized K-pop artists. Unlike many groups, U-KISS does not have a sound that is distinctly them. Instead, their strength lies in their versatility — the U-KISS sound is simply THE U-KISS sound. Not many groups are not as exploratory as U-KISS because it’s not always successful from a business perspective or it’s just simply because they don’t have the skills to do so. No group, not excluding U-KISS, is at their peak at the time of their debut but that didn’t prevent them from persevering through the harsh industry and continuing to reinvent themselves as a group. They may have still not reached #1 but the work they’ve done up until now speaks for itself. Their dedication and passion for continual growth leaves its mark on all of their releases and over time, is what turned this former passive listener into an avid fan. Even after acquiring their many awards and recognitions that are surely soon to come, I hope they never stop reinventing themselves as artists. They continue to push their limits regardless of what rank the industry labels them with, which is truly admirable and what makes U-KISS particularly special to me.

    What Do I Love About U-kiss? I basically Love everything about them I love their vocals, all their differences and I love all their songs, their new songs are AMAZING They were the first Kpop Group I listened to and they motivated me to listen to more Kpop groups first song I listened to was Bingeul Bingeul and I thought They’re cute and good singers&Rappers. This is my favorite K-pop band I would love to have their new Cd. I wish they had Alexander and Kibum still and Have all the members they have now. It would be awesome. That must have been amazing to meet them and interview them. Youtube Name ~ Filipinagurl24587

    I love U-Kiss for who they are. At first, I fell in love with just their looks and music. But as I continue to watch them, I learned more about them. I became aware of what things brighten them up and the many hardships they have gone through and still do. I will never stop being a kissme. I will always support them no matter what. I pray that U-Kiss could become more successful than they already are.

    I will also pray hard that Simon and Martina could become more successful! I’m so happy that you guys interviewed U-Kiss! I hope you guys can interview a lot more kpop idols! I know you will! Thank you Simon and Martina, watching your videos always makes my day. :)

  37. U-Kiss is the only group that I take time to vote on MNet and stream on bugs for. They’re the only group whose music I purchase on the week of release to help on the charts. It takes time for international fans to log in and out to cast a vote and change our IPs to stream just to help them a little. I actually am a huge fan of most kpop groups, but U-Kiss is the only one that makes me want to go through all this extra trouble to help out. I do not pity them as many people do just because they have not yet won on a music show. I love them for their being real. I know that all groups act when they appear on TV, but U-Kiss has always been as real as they could be while entertaining. I was already a huge fan of their music, but after getting to know them a little through their variety shows I really grew to appreciate their music more than any other group’s. I don’t only listen to U-Kiss, but when I feel like crying, I like to listen to Someday and Take Me Away. When I am angry I like to listen to “시끄러!!” When I feel like dancing around I listen to “니가 좋아”. When I want to relax I listen to “Remember”. They have a song for every mood and excel at every genre they give a try to. So in the end, I support U-Kiss as much as I can because they make me feel happy and I want them to be happy because of that.

    OMG I really had the same thought, about Idols hating their own songs. When I watched the Making Off “Ballons” from DBSK. HAHA They had to dance to the same song over and over again.

    LOLLLLL just love they way Soohyun not-afraid-of-anything . his face while mordney seeking LOLLLLLLLLL he is like ‘haha idk im happy here btw who is mordney hahaha idont care”

  40. There is a lot
    to say about ukiss. How much they have inspired me by not let the fact that
    they not have won a music award till now, have lost their strength. They also inspire me with their music, and
    their love for their fans. I haven’t been a fan for a long time, but I can say
    that I truly am a real kissme, and that the boys mean a lot to me. I’ve always thought that, “how can they make
    such amazing songs over and over again? It has to stop one day” But it doesn’t.
    Comeback after comeback, yet another amazing song is being made. It really
    amazes me. The passion they have for music and work. In just a year they have come
    out with 3 Korean albums, 1 single, 4 Japanese albums and 2 OST’s. That is
    pretty impressive. There are a lot of other bands that I love also, but ukiss
    really stand out, and it didn’t take a long time for me to really like them,
    when I found out about them. I even remember back in 2010, the first MV I
    watched from them, and I was instantly hooked. I just gave up on all other
    bands, just to learn more about them, and get to know them. And it was worth
    it, because UKISS is that kind of band that really shins, and if you just take
    the time to listen to a few songs, listen to their story, either it’s about
    Alexander and Kibum, or that they yet haven’t won an award, it’s worth hearing
    it. I’m far from the biggest fan, but for me, they are the biggest. There are a
    lot of people I know that have got to know them better because I’ve shown them
    UKISS, and because of that, some of them actually got really into it, and it
    makes me happy.

    Everyone isn’t perfect, not even UKISS, no matter how many times I try to make
    me believe it, they are not. But their songs are. I may not like all of them as
    much, but I still love them. It’s UKISS, and I feel a kind of a bond between
    us. I’m not sure how to say it, but I feel connected. In a way like, I have
    been there for them for some time, and I have this special bond. This bond
    means more to me than any other bond, and I hope it will stay like that for a
    long time, because I truly love, UKISS.

  41. what i love about u-kiss is their hard work and patience. It’s been a long time since their debut and there have been many changes that happened from their songs to their members. And they haven’t won 1st place yet in programs. But u-kiss didn’t show any signs of giving up, instead they continued working hard and growing up which is very important in a group.

    I honestly just love watching this interview. Makes all kinds of kiddy. I see different things each time I watch it.
    Truthfully I love watching Soohyun, his reactions and
    laughter. He understands a lot more English then he thinks he does. And
    it’s very brief but Hoon’s ears started to turn red a little bit when
    they were talking about his habit. I remember when he debuted with him
    his ears would turn bright, bright red when he would get embarrassed.

    What I like most about U-Kiss? I’ve been contemplating what to write the last few days, hoping to formulate a well thought out answer. But what can I say that hundreds of others before me haven’t already said? Everything they’ve said is true and shines a light on all the best qualities about U-Kiss. So I’ve narrowed it down to this. What I like most about U-Kiss is their honest and true love for their KissMe’s. They always make an effort to show their appreciation to their fans for being there with them through the good, the bad and the funny. As more and more KissMe’s join the fandom you can see the strength and confidence growing exponentially within each and every member of U-Kiss. You can see who much they appreciate KissMe’s through not only their songs and videos, but mostly through the sweet and tears they shed during each and every live performance in front of their beloved KissMe’s. Knowing they exist because each and everyone of their fans fights to make sure U-Kiss is known.

    i love how they’re so hardworking and are always thinking about their fans. it’s been years since they’ve debuted but haven’t won any music award so it must be frustrating for them but i love how they continue to be dedicated and are always happy to perform on stage together. they’re always thinking of their fans and releasing songs for kissmes despite how tired they are.

  48. Oh lol, I had this huuuuge goofy smile on my face the entire time! They are just so cute! And I have to agree with everyone on this one, Kevin is totally their child.

  49. What I like most about U-Kiss:

    They taught me that:
    Although tiring there will be days to smile
    When you fall down, when you get up
    Although tiring, there will be days to smile, eventually a day to smile will come
    Eventually a day to smile will come

    They said:
    I believe in you, believe, believe
    Please know my true heart, my true feelings
    Believe that it’s not a lie
    I do believe you you you
    Please believe that it’s not a lie

    They promised that if I follow them, they would show me:
    A fantasy that isn’t far away
    To this word full of imagination
    Without an end, never end, this is Neverland
    In a fantasy like fairytale
    Everyday, tomorrows like today
    Money love fashion fame, and all that’s in between

    And they put my feelings first by lying to ease the pain:
    We have our lovely memories
    That we’ve piled up together but,
    Because we can’t spend tomorrow like we did today,
    I’m going to tell you a big lie
    To lie, I shall be singing for you through the night (To lie)
    I shall be turning on the broken light (To lie)
    So that we can pierce through the night sky

    U-Kiss has the ability to make you a “meh-sure-i-like-u-kiss fan” to a
    “HELL-YEAH-I’M-A-U-KISS FAN!!” with one performance. I had this
    experience first hand when I went to their concert not knowing what I
    would become after I left…. a KISS-ME~ XD love them

  53. So I would love it if Eli and Kevin did a sort of Kondoot thing, where they talk with their fans to practice their english. I think they’re the first people that I’ve fan girl’d over, and it’s because they’re so nice AND I can understand them. DON”T LOSE YOUR ENGRISH GUISE!

  54. [4everpiggie]I always find myself smiling/laughing like an idiot when i watch anything u-kiss related. they always put a smile on my face (: and their infinite effort and hard word really touches my heart. Last year, i hated kpop because i thought it was just a bunch of asian guys acting girly in white/pastel skinny jeans that got paid lots of money for doing nothing, but U-KISS proved all my ignorant assumptions WRONG. kpop is the complete opposite of everything i used to think, and i really do regret say such rash comments :’/ thank you ukiss helping me see the light :)<3 within literally 2 songs, i was addicted to U-KISS and its heartbreaking knowing how much they have been through as a group and individual. I truly admire everything about ukiss: hard work, talent… everything, and will forever be a kissme ^^ thanks Eat Your Kimchi for this awesome opportunity :) i hope you guys enjoyed your interview and thank you for all you amazing videos :3 love youu UKISS & EYK FIGHTING!!

    Hi! So what I like most about U-kiss? First off, they seem truley down to earth and genuin. I remember I was watching a U-kiss variety show once and I know that sometimes members “act” a certain way in variety shows but i noticed whenever one of the U-kiss members was “acting” the others would call them out on it, I thought that was really funny. They seem more concerned with having fun then their image and that they actually really do care about their fans AND each other which i find amazingly refreshing.^^ I know it sounds kind of weird since i don’t know them, but U-kiss have been like friends to me; because of U-kiss I have never laughed harder in my life and i have gotten through so because of all 9 of them. U-kiss literally saved my life <3 I feel bad that i can't be the same comfort for them that they are for me. Also because of the fact that they (Kevin and Eli… and Alexander before) speak English makes them seam even more… for lack of a better word real to me? haha, However the best thing about U-kiss is that even though they (unfortunately) are extremely underated, they still give their all to their preformances and their fans. I mean c'mon, some of the notes Soohyun can do live are AMAZING (Let's party tonight~). I still can't believe they havn't won 1st place yet because they are so talented and work so hard. Also it seems like U-kiss never stops inproving; seriously when did Kiseop's vocals and Dongho's rapping get so good? Well, sorry this is so long :P I would just like to end by saying that I still can't believe how much i love these 9 guys with all my heart even though i have never met them before and probably never will (Especially Kevin, my all time bias <3). Btw, it is actually throught EYK that I found U-kiss so i cannot thank you guys enough! U-kiss and Eatyourkimchi Hwaiting!^^ – Lexi

  56. I’m not very good at summing up my feelings into words but here goes… Honestly, I’ve been listening to kpop for a while now. At first everything excited me but after a bit all the debut groups, everything, just starts sounding the same. Nothing special. Then I heard U-KISS -Tick Tack. That was when I completely fell in love with them. I loved everything about it (even though it wasn’t kpop and they were homeless). After that I started listening to their other music and watched various shows with them. Since then I have loved other tracks of theirs but nothing strikes my heart chords as much as Tick Tack. I haven’t been a fan of theirs for long, but I plan to make up for it. After all, there’s no time like the present. :) I look forward to watching them grow more and more each day. I expect to be impressed and love them more and more. After everything I have seen so far, I may have loved them for Tick Tack, but I’m sticking around because of their personalities and their love for their fans. I don’t feel this close connection and love bands have for their fans with other groups. I love these hard-working boys and I want to try and support them so that they can reach the recognition they deserve. I want to be there to help them reach number one and think, finally, it’s about gawddamn time lol. And that’s another reason why I love them. Their strength and determination. They must be so tired, all these releases, fan singles, shows, and yet everyday, they show smiling faces to their fans. U-KISS, I love you. :) And I count myself lucky to be able to discover a group like you. ♥ I can’t wait to see more from you! – youtube username: vonguyk001

  57. http://www.youtube.com/user/luna1992e: I first saw U-KISS on Pops in Seoul for the first time around Feb. ’09. I learn that Eli lost his friend against Cancer and that the other members had some similar experiences as well. I can relate to Eli the most since I also had Cancer as a child. I was a loner and I didn’t knew English back then. My best friend had come from Thailand. So you can image who hard it was for us to communicate. I cried when many friends who I met at the hospital passed away, but I was strong thanks to my best friend and Eli’s words of encouragement. This isn’t to obtain pity but to let U-KISS know that even if they do or do not know, they are always making a huge impact to the public as well to their fans. and so for the same reason it is that we all love them by what they are; BRAVE MEN.<3 Fighting U-KISS!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Simon! Hi Martina! You guys probably have a lot of
    comments to read through huh? hehe~ But if you are, I’ll try my best to make
    this comment interesting enough to read! Hehe~

    I’ve been a fan of Kpop since December 2010 I think and to
    tell the truth, I didn’t know much about U-Kiss. I was a huge fan of SHINee and Infinite when
    I first listened to KPOP since they were the first groups that I knew. I liked their music and they were such dorks
    on variety shows. But, as I grew more
    into Kpop and started watching the idol-variety shows with other idols in it, I
    also came to love U-Kiss. It started
    with watching Oh! My School and I noticed how cute Dongho was, even though he’s
    older than me >–< Kekeke~
    U-Kiss seems so alive on variety shows and they always seem to have a
    great time with each other. I especially
    loved them in Chef’s Kiss! Their teamwork with each other was so well. I miss Alexander and Kibum TTuTT But its alright J They will always be a part
    of U-Kiss <3 So…. Where was i? Oh well. Hehe~ Let’s talk about why I love U-Kiss, well I
    think I’ve been saying quite a lot why I do.
    H e h e~ I love how determined
    and patient they are. The fact that they
    have been together for 4 loooong years makes me feel so happy about them. Their bond and friendship together must be
    really big. I love U-Kiss to death, you
    just can’t deny my r2 π. ;) hehe~ I love
    how even though they haven’t won any music shows, they still stay strong Not like it matters though because they have
    a bunch of amazing fans all around the world.
    But it would be so amazing if they won!!! Omaibuddah if they won I’ll
    probably cry and throw a little party all by myself hehe~ Ugh, man there’s too much to love about
    U-kiss, but if I tell you all about it, I might just have to write a book and
    send it too you hehe~ I just can explain
    what I feel~~

    U-Kiss fighting!!! Stay strong and please continue to do
    music forever!!! Keep your determination and love for music 100%. You’ll have your fans to support you all the
    way! “I Do Believe In You~” hehe~

  59. Rawrrklove

    Why is Kevin so cute? lol

  60. Saying so alone like a part of ‘STOP GIRL’ is lying ~
    When Kiseop starts dancing and the others follow is so synchronized that makes you want to dance, I really like when they work together to achieve a goal!
    I see the video is very grand indeed different from previous glad they keep growing and showing how strong and great they are.
    The dance is really good giving elaborate perfect with the music when I dance at that point ‘Choir’ which focuses on energy which I like a lot!. It is also attractive when dancing with the dancers feel they are powerful haha and really catches my attention.
    Well this video is something we enjoy and help win U-KISS! Your effort should be rewarded in the best way because they have taken so many bad times ..
    I a fan, I appreciate that I appreciate that they realized their peculiar personalities .. by Dongho not answer! * Dongho makes Bullying *

  61. The sound effects made it so much funnier!! specially kevin “I mean Im always happy… when im with you guys”…

  62. I like U-Kiss for so many reasons and it’s so hard and complicated to describe them in words. I just love U-Kiss for who they are and their commitment and love for KissMe’s and the love and commitment the KissMe’s return. I love U-Kiss for their personalities and their relationship with each other. It just feels like we are one big family that completes eachother. We would always want each others best, care for each other and support each other. I love U-Kiss for how they treat their fans like best friends, and I am really happy to say that my first album was from U-Kiss ^-^ We are like a puzzle with two parts with support to keep it whole. If we have the two puzzle parts but no support to hold it up, it would crumble to pieces again. If one’s missing but has the support, the puzzle would still be incomplete. but since we have the both parts and the pillars of love and care, we are whole <3

    U-Kiss Maths: PuzzleK: KissMe’s~. PuzzleU: U-Kiss-Oppas~

    Pillar+PuzzleK+PuzzleU= U-KissMe’s

    ’’Don’t deny our R-Squared Pi’’

    If google is right, R Squared Pi means the curcumference of a circle.

    Circle = Infinity/Everlasting = LOVE.

    Jaeseop-Oppa, Nobody is denying our ’’R Squared Pi’’ :DD
    I really hate maths, but maybe I will change my mind since math is now
    ’’Maths feat. U-Kiss’’ to me xD
    Sorry if this all sounds cheezy ^^’

    Love from Sweden to: U-Kiss, KissMe’s, Simon and Martina, Nasties~, Spudgy and Dr.Meemersworth <3

  64. There is just so many things that I absolutely love in this music video. My most favorite thing? I really just can not just choose one! I loved the dance. I have always loved their dances and this is definitely one of them! There’s just so much energy that is shown through the dance moves and you can see how hard they practiced to make it perfect. The black and white of the whole music video gives such a…I’m not sure how to describe it! Retro? Lol It definitely gave the music video a classy look [I like it, like it, like that.] The song was amazing. I love how it was not too overwhelming or underwhelming. To me it was a great balance of instrumental and vocals. Their voices! Their voices just moves my heart to no end at all! >.< If only I could sing as well as they can. (: I absolutely LOVE EVERYTHING!!! — RandomGils [youtube]

    OK..knowing the love that Kissmes have for U-KISS… I’m betting that most of what I’m gonna say was already said T_T…. this is gonna be a rant, I mean you guys are giving me an op to say what I love about U-KISS.. I can write a whole book! but I’ll restrain myself… :P
    First U-kiss thing I saw was 0330… and I had NO IDEA who U-KIss was maybe cos only the really big names *cough Big Bang cough* are so well known even a cave girl like me knew .. but I instantly loved the unique beautiful sounding music.. actually everything about it! I initially thought they were just another group of pretty boys with looks and no talent.. but OMG THEY PROVED ME WRONG Kevin’s angelic voice and face which still makes me jealous, Eli’s smexy English at the beginning, AJ’s famous r squared pi …
    *ahems* well the thing that i really love about U-KISS is the fact that even though they are .. really unfortunately underrated… they always try so hard! IMO kissmes are one of the most spoiled fandoms EVAH!! li
    Allso…they really show fans how much they value them , special albums, videos,tweeting new eyecandy photos and messages frequently *pause for some fangirling* and I think thats something very special! It makes me feel.. connected to my idols <3.. and the fact that some celebs seem to have different personas.. (TV personality, variety show personality) but for some reason, U-KISS have this natural .. 'real' persona (like just take a look at those eky vids.. they seem so natural, pretty normal and 'real').
    and.. IMO its pretty impossible to only have one ultimate bias in a group, and I'm no exception..KEVIN <3… but I love all the members! each one has their own unique, equally lovable personality! <3

    Yup, I did go on a rant.. I think only 70% of this answered the question..lol!

    The thing I like most about UKISS is their strength and perseverance. I admire how they’re always working so hard and always think of their fans. I love how friendly and lovely they are. There are so many things I want to mention but I don’t have the time to properly write it (perhaps I will come here again and write it even if I can only enter this once, who knows, perhaps Kevin will read this, I know, crazy and impossible). I really am so grateful that they entered my life, they make my life happier and I would like them to know how they have made life better for so many people. I love them for being themselves and I love their music, their music really makes me happy and I hope that they will have a long and rewarding career. UKISS, I will always be a Kissme and support you any way I can! I really hope one day I can go to one of your concerts!

  67. My
    favourite part in the MV is all of the parts! But the most most
    favorites part is the part where all of the members dancing the chorus
    part “stop girl in the name of love~” haha, it’s so sexy, cool and
    unique! ^^ and also their individual solo part like Kevin one, he look
    so sexy and the part where he’s dancing solo with the female dancer!
    It’s so smoking hot~ ♥ And Soohyun solo dancing too! ♥ it’s great to see
    that they finally have female dancers in their video but i’m kinda
    jealous of the dancers~ >< hahaha! And most importantly i love
    Dongho rapping part he look so hot and his rapping definietly improves!!
    And Eli rapping part, he look like a boss sitting on the armchair while
    rapping, hot~ i love the beginning part of the mv it's very cool cause
    it shows Kiseop dancing solo and slowly one by one the members follows
    his move and he has more part for the song too!. Cool right? :D even
    though hoon doesn't really have many screen time in the MV I love his
    solo part in the beginning of the MV! I'm a hardcore Kissme! KEKEKE! I'M
    SO MADLY IN LOVE WITH THE SONG, DANCE MOVES AND THEM!! ♥.♥ Lastly i
    really really really hope they will WIN! So kissme lets support them by
    purchasing their song on their facebook music store and also vote for
    them too! U-KISS FIGHTING! ♥ ♥ love ya~

    What I love about U-KISS is that they are always think of us Kissme! And
    i really love their attitude, even though they aren't as famous as Big
    Bang,Shinee,SJ etc but they still continue to work hard and give in all
    their best for their singing, dances, albums etc!And they are so damn
    funny and child-like sometime and it's very cute! ^^ the bond they share
    are really strong, they always understand each other and help out when
    other members are having difficulties especially big brother soohyun!

    What I love most about U-Kiss is their honest and sincere dedication to their fans. They always thank their Kiss-mes and work hard for them, not wanting to disappoint. This and their passion for what they do truly makes me love them. U-kiss is always smiling brightly and works hard together as a team.YT: KiraAira13

    Hi Simon! Hi Martina! You guys probably have a lot of
    comments to read through huh? hehe~ But if you are, I’ll try my best to make
    this comment interesting enough to read! Hehe~

    I’ve been a fan of Kpop since December 2010 (which i don’t think is very long..) and to
    tell the truth, I didn’t know much about U-Kiss. I was a huge fan of SHINee and Infinite when
    I first listened to KPOP since they were the first groups that I knew. I liked their music and they were such dorks
    on variety shows. But, as I grew more
    into Kpop and started watching the idol-variety shows with other idols in it, I
    also came to love U-Kiss. It started
    with watching Oh! My School and I noticed how cute Dongho was, even though he’s
    older than me >–< Kekeke~
    U-Kiss seems so alive on variety shows and they always seem to have a
    great time with each other. I especially
    loved them in Chef’s Kiss! Their teamwork with each other was so well. I miss Alexander and Kibum TTuTT But its alright J They will always be a part
    of U-Kiss <3 So…. Where was i? Oh well. Hehe~ Let’s talk about why I love U-Kiss, well I
    think I’ve been saying quite a lot why I do.
    H e h e~ I love how determined
    and patient they are. The fact that they
    have been together for 4 loooong years makes me feel so happy about them. Their bond and friendship together must be
    really big. I love U-Kiss to death, you
    just can’t deny my r2 π. ;) hehe~ I love
    how even though they haven’t won any music shows, they still stay strong Not like it matters though because they have
    a bunch of amazing fans all around the world.
    But it would be so amazing if they won!!! Omaibuddah if they won I’ll
    probably cry and throw a little party all by myself hehe~ Ugh, man there’s too much to love about
    U-kiss, but if I tell you all about it, I might just have to write a book and
    send it too you hehe~ I just can explain
    what I feel~~

    U-Kiss fighting!!! Stay strong and please continue to do
    music forever!!! Keep your determination and love for music 100%. You’ll have your fans to support you all the
    way! “I Do Believe In You~” hehe~

  70. I love UKISS because they are UKISS. There isnt anything more to say. UKISS is always working hard, for Kissmes and themselves. Theyre one of the most underrated bands in the history of kpop. Their warm and bright personalities also made me love UKISS. Even though they havent won anything, they continue to push an are one of the happiest/craziest bands I know. Their music is as amazing as they personality too. Whenever Im unhappy, I just listen to their music. When i feel like giving up or crying, think of UKISS and their tough times which reminds me to smile and keep going. Is there anymore to say about this band? ♥ Saranghae UKISS! Fighting~!

  71. “their ability to discipline themselves and persevere through insane work schedules” – Isn’t this a requirement for all artistes/performers though? But of course you have a lot of moody and bitchy celebrities in Hollywood, which ain’t common in k-entertainment.

  72. What I like
    the most about U-KISS? It’s quite sad when I can’t just say something like
    ‘Everything.’… However, being serious now, what I like the most about them is
    their hardworking, determination, humbleness and the fact that they never give
    up. They’ve gone through a lot since their Debut but they’ve never wavered. No
    matter what happened, they were always showing us a cool side of them, always
    smiling and giving us back, through great music and hard work, all the love we’ve
    given them. Furthermore, every time I remember they’ve never won a music award,
    my heart break into little pieces, ‘cause it’s really unfair. They’ve done
    their bests until now and they surely deserve it!! ;__; But even this fact wasn’t
    a big deal to them and it amazes me more than anything else. Instead of being
    depressed like us when things just don’t happen as we’re expecting, they’ll
    gather all their strength and come back even better and brighter and we’ll just
    love them more and more. I’m sure they’re really doing what THEY really like the
    most, with all their hearts, and this is what actually matters. U-KISS has taught
    me what ‘determination’ really means and I really hope I can learn even more
    with them. I’m really a proud Kiss Me and I’m sure they’ll keep making me happy
    like this forever. (YouTube Acc: AkemiJH)

  73. ba0_0824

    haha im actually gonna try to cover their dance :P hope eli watches it when i post it up kekee ~ ^^

  74. ba0_0824

    i DEFINITELY agree with you martina, “This is why I really hate it when people say, “oh kpop is so easy and
    has no talent, anyone can do it.” WRONG. The members of all the kpop
    groups are insanely talented, not just for their dancing and singing
    abilities, but with their ability to discipline themselves and persevere
    through insane work schedules.” … like seriously, people can’t just look at artists from their appearances and songs, cos what they DO behind the scenes, is incredibly exhausting. I just have one thing that I don’t like about their schedules, is why they have to spend around 3-4 hours doing their hair, makeup and everything, and being early to music shows 2 hours earlier, etc … all that time can be reduced and they can actually rest during those hours ))): it really upsets me thinking how their body system is going crazy cos of their unbalanced sleeping habits and eating habits. ;s anyways, i really hope ukiss has a vacation soon cos theyve been promoting NON STOP this second half of the year :S

  75. There is a lot
    to say about ukiss. How much they have inspired me by not let the fact that
    they not have won a music award till now, have lost their strength. They also inspire me with their music, and
    their love for their fans. I haven’t been a fan for a long time, but I can say
    that I truly am a real kissme, and that the boys mean a lot to me. I’ve always thought that, “how can they make
    such amazing songs over and over again? It has to stop one day” But it doesn’t.
    Comeback after comeback, yet another amazing song is being made. It really
    amazes me. The passion they have for music and work. In just a year they have come
    out with 3 Korean albums, 1 single, 4 Japanese albums and 2 OST’s. That is
    pretty impressive. There are a lot of other bands that I love also, but ukiss
    really stand out, and it didn’t take a long time for me to really like them,
    when I found out about them. I even remember back in 2010, the first MV I watched
    from them, and I was instantly hooked. I just gave up on all other bands, just
    to learn more about them, and get to know them. And it was worth it, because
    UKISS is that kind of band that really shins, and if you just take the time to
    listen to a few songs, listen to their story, either it’s about Alexander and
    Kibum, or that they yet haven’t won an award, it’s worth hearing it. I’m far
    from the biggest fan, but for me, they are the biggest. There are a lot of
    people I know that have got to know them better because I’ve shown them UKISS,
    and because of that, some of them actually got really into it, and it makes me
    happy.

    Everyone isn’t perfect, not even UKISS, no matter how many times I try to make
    me believe it, they are not. But their songs are. I may not like all of them as
    much, but I still love them. It’s UKISS, and I feel a kind of a bond between
    us. I’m not sure how to say it, but I feel connected. In a way like, I have
    been there for them for some time, and I have this special bond. This bond
    means more to me than any other bond, and I hope it will stay like that for a
    long time, because I truly love, UKISS.

  76. I wasn’t even into U-kiss until I saw the spontaneous interview they did with you guys, and from then on I started looking them up. The reason why I became interested only has to do with one thing: how approachable, down to earth, and humble they all seem. I especially like the fact that they have members who know english, so I can understand them! They all seem incredibly nice, and I feel like if I saw them in person I wouldn’t be intimidated at all (unlike with every other famous person). Just them inviting you guys onto the set for filming the MV is an example of how approachable they are.

    yt: XoceanxsunX

    PS Thanks so much for interviewing them! >_<

  77. U-Kiss just gained a new fan. They have great personalities!

  78. joyce989

    What I love about U-Kiss is that they work sooo hard and they are dedicated all the time. They must have worked really hard to get to where they are now! I’m really proud of them! I’ve been watching them since the beginning and watching them progress and grow amazed me. U-Kiss Fighting!!! ^.^

  79. What DONT I like about U-KISS? I love their hard work, (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZjE2kfebFU&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLDSlF6OzGvaUpwr27rwRY2w), charisma, music, videos, their humor, style, good looks, 3 of their members speak english, etc.. but since I need to pick one I would say I love how well they work together, in any situation, positively. They are so easy on the eyes! Ahhhhhh :)

    i luv ukiss not only because of their amazing songs but the members themselves. They always make amazing comebacks, that they have worked hard for, while showing their gratitude to their kissme’s in their songs. They really love their fans and not only do they say it but they show it. Also, I love how down to earth, crazy and just simply amazing they are. They always make me laugh and brighten up my day through their variety shows. I also like how they interact not only with their korean fans but english speaking fans too !!! (sometimes through twitter) heheh
    I LOVE YOU UKISS!!!! Im glad you guys are living your dreams ! And thank you for the smiles and your amazing meaningful songs THNX

    ~MsMusicaddict100

  81. What DONT I like about U-KISS? I love their music, charisma, hard work, awesome dances, videos, personalities, good looks, etc… Since I have to pick one thing I like most about them it’s that 3 of their members speak english and that they used to have a show called “pops in Seoul”. If you havent watched BC Good Day, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ZjE2kfebFU, you really should!!! It shows even more how hard they work together!!
    P.S. Kevin my best friend wants to try to make you mad! Hahaha Xo

    I love U-Kiss because despite the fact that they have not won many major awards for their work, they continue to work so hard. I also have so much respect for Kevin, Eli and their respective families for leaving their established lives back in the US to move to Korea, audition to become a idol, and then proceed to train so hard to debut. Their tenacity and their dedication is truly an inspiration to me.

    (Youtube account: Yoon564/ [email protected])

  84. I love how the U-Kiss members aren’t afraid of being themselves in front of the camera or in public. They are always showing off their quirky, dorky sides and not sticking to their seriousness in their MVs. Like, in the behind the scenes of ‘Stop Girl,’ everyone saw how Eli was jumping around all dorky. I’m a really shy person and seeing them joke around and be themselves motivates me to be ‘me’ at times. They have the whole world watching them and laugh off mistakes and stick together. I love how their uniqueness keeps them together and they aren’t afraid to be themselves. And I hope that doesn’t ever change. :)

  85. youtube user: Livillyswhat I like the most about U-Kiss is the fact that they are always reinventing themselves and they do it in such a wonderful way that makes me like them even more. You can actually see how much they’ve grown as artists. I like to see that they keep pushing, trying new things and at the same time are capable of maintaining that colorful and down to earth spirit. All that together makes me admire them very much!!!!

  86. What I love about U-KISS is that even though haven’t been able to win any awards, due to releasing the same time as a bigger name group (this time it’s DBSK ;_; conflicted since I love both) they continue to do their best and work hard to produce something that the fans will love! I really hope they win soon but shows that they will not give up! <3 (YT: sweetpniangel87)

    Ahhhhh, U-Kiss is seriously awesome! I wish EYK could just do interviews with them all the time. =’D It’s really really cool to have them answering such different questions, and I like the English bits a lot, and how it’s mixed in with the translated Korean. Gives me warm fuzzy feelings. :3

    Kevin, you are super sweet and funny and awesome. I love you. <3 Also, I was so so super excited at the "howdy" you threw in when they mentioned Texas!

    There are a million other things I want to say, but basically it's just EYK + U-Kiss = Best thing ever! There's some math for you, Simon~ xD
    (P.S. We miss you AJ! Please work hard and return soon!)

  88. I remember when Jay Park was in 2PM and he said that he thought he was forgetting his English. He got scared and was like no this cannot go on and made the members talk English every now and then. Especially at home or practice or whenever they had free time.

  89. What i like the most about them is, that they are so nice to their fans. Last year i went to a music show when i was in korea and they performed neverland there. After the show we were just like 20 meters away from the building and we suddenly saw a white van who stopped at the other side of the street. And the windows opend and kevin made a big heart with his arms and my mind was broken. a few other mebers were also waving, but we just screamed and i still smile so much when i think about it. i never believed this would happen. U-Kiss made my first visit to Korea such a special one which i will never forget. :) Thats why I Love them.

  90. What i like most about U-kiss is Kevin! Seriously. I liked their Neverland but It was your spur of the moment “interview” with Kevin that made me start getting an interest in them. :)

    When I was speaking online to one of my friends last night (it was over Skype), I accidentally called Simon and Martina ‘Simon and Martini’. It was late, I was sick, and we both could not stop laughing.

  93. I admire each and every one of them, for simply just being themselves. I have seen them all grow and mature throughout the years. They are true and not afraid to show their real personality. They work so well as a group, and put all efforts together in every single thing that they do. I love the way they handle everything thrown at them with a smile. They’ve all been through so much challenges in life, yet they still continue to fight and remain strong. They dedicated their lives to fulfill their goals and to bring joy to people through their wonderful music. U-KISS, working hard 24/7 and having so much motivation just to make their fans happy, is truly incredible. Even though I haven’t been there since the start, I love U-KISS and I will support them now until the end. ♥

    Firstly thank you for putting this up!! KissMe-Nasties (That doesn’t sound good!) are forever grateful!
    Secondly, the reason I love U-Kiss is because of their attitude. They are super talented, really, really, ridiculous good-looking (for any Zoolander fans ;P) yet amazingly grounded. They don’t take their fans for granted, they don’t take themselves too seriously (as we’ve clearly seen through EYK videos) and above all they’re willing to give up their time to chat to two dorks (your words! :P) like you and through you all Nasties!! Fact is before they did that first impromptu interview with you at Jeju, I’d heard of them but hadn’t really bothered learning more about them. Now they’re one of my favourite groups!

    OK, so I thought it would be really easy since they’re my favourite artists in k-pop and one of the favourite artists in general, but it turned out to be exact the opposite. It doesn’t help that I’m forgetting my English just like Kevin LOL~

    First of all, I love their music. Because it’s really good.

    The first U-KISS song I heard was 만만하니 when it first came out and I was stunned. It had such a fresh sound, different from k-pop songs I was used to.

    And I still think they do sound unique.

    It’s not just because I’m kind of biased about them, but also because their music (in my opinion) has some kind of western and digital vide to it. And I love it.

    So I easily grew fond of them. And I wanted to get to know them better. Not actually get to know them in person, but in the way you get to know an artist by their work.
    And since then, I have never been disappointed.

    They also happened to be the five nicest, most friendly, intelligent and incredibly hard-working boys. They improved a lot since their debut and keep getting better.

    Well, actually, seven boys, since I tend to keep treating Xander and Kibum as a part of the family.
    I remember when the news broke out that Xander and Kibum had left the group — it felt like a tragedy back then. I was frightened of what would happen. What would change and how? It would probably remain one of my saddest U-KISS memory.

    It was late March when ‘Bran New KISS’ was released. And it would probably remain one of my favourite, the happiest U-KISS memory.
    I hope I don’t sound too delusional? But I cried with joy and relief. I’m just too sensitive.
    It was a beautiful spring day, it was even raining a little bit, but the sun shone bright. And everything was right once again. It felt like a new start.
    I think it’s admirable how they went through difficult times and came back shining more than ever.

    I have never thought that it was possible to me to love these guys more than I already did, but there I was.

    And they felt complete. To me, it felt like Hoon and AJ have always been the part of U-KISS.

    I didn’t want to write how I think that Soohyun makes a perfect leader and how he is an exaptionally good singer. As well as Kevin. And how their voices, which are very different, compliment each other so beautifully. And then you add Hoon to the mix and get one of the best singing k-pop group.

    Or how I think that Eli and AJ make the most wonderful and hilarious rap-unit. (Or that AJ has the most beautiful smile and even if it’s a pity that he’s currently not with the other guys, it’s still amazing that the company lets him accomplish his education abroad and it doesn’t feel like a tragedy anymore.)
    Don’t deny our r squered pi!

    Oh, and how I belive that U-KISS have the best, most caring managers, even if I know nothing about it.

    And how I think Kiseop is incredibly good dancer and he keeps getting better and better at singing and always remains a beautiful human being (though I’m not sure if I can use «beautiful» to describe a man).

    And how I think that Dongho may be the one who has improved the most. And how he has changed from the shy kid to the talented, attractive and confident young man.

    I didn’t want to write all of this because it was getting too long. Except I just did.
    And I don’t know why I love U-KISS so much. I just do. For their music, and all their hard work and their great personalities.

    Oh, and Simon and Martina! Thank you for being awesome ;)
    I love you too!

    What can I say about U-kiss, if song quality was a measure of success then U-kiss should be at the top because when you compare songs like this with songs like Lucifer from shinee you cannot compare the two. They are are an amazing indie band in a kpop world but their music is beautiful . soohyuns talent is underrated i believe.
    Finally i believe its their never can die attitude that they were not very succesful in their first 2 years and the figured out what worked and put all their faith on the music. They are amazing performers how could you not love them. ♥ U-Kiss CD please kimchi

    What I like about U-Kiss is “THEIR NEVER GIVING UP SPIRIT!”

    Eventhough U-KISS never won a Music Awards, I’ll still SUPPORT them! A friend of mine teased me that U-KISS never won any Music Awards. Seriously?! I do feel sad deep inside… but I’ve never do something like stabbing at her back/ scold her because of what she had said! :P This is why people say: “KISS-ME is a peaceful fandom! xD”

    *well, my story may not be as good as the others Kiss-Me but hope I get picked!

    I have no idea if I’m allowed to leave a comment both in the YouTube comments and over here, but I’ll do so anyway. My YouTube username is Riabain.

    Anyway, what I love most about U-Kiss is that they are wholly committed to their fans. Their songs are always dedicated to us, and in general, they just seem very approachable and nice. I hope that they’ll continue to be this way in the future, because they have my full support. <3

  104. What I like about U-Kiss is the very fact that I cannot place my finger as to why I like them. I think about it all the time and I ask myself why why WHY I like U-kiss so much when there are so many other “greater” or more “popular” bands. After I caught on U-Kiss, i haven’t fallen for any other band, even if I were to try to. Sounds very strange to me -or maybe I have a very small heart. haha. Of course, there are still a few things I absolutely love about them.
    1. They take their music seriously. All of them are really passionate in music and you can literally see it in them! You have composers (how rare?), extraordinary singers ( A FEW even), super cool rappers, and almost everybody can play an instrument or more. You see them jumping everywhere singing and rapping, almost like second nature and they enjoy it so much. I really like this about them, especially since I have a thorough interest in music as well (being my school’s band conductor, haha) and I do like almost all their songs. I respect them for daring to try out different genre of songs and pulling them off relatively well. They are, i feel, a band who actually knows what they are doing. Also. Their songs are DECEIVINGLY HARD TO SING. I’m not kidding. It actually surprises me to a point i laugh. Look at when love stops. The pitch is just so low (or maybe coz I’m a girl but still!) and its really hard to stay on key when you jump from verse to verse to chorus, and with key change and stuff. It’s almost as deceving as Simon who looks innocent and a good boy. HM.
    2. You can’t not like everyone! ITS ABSOLUTELY 100% TRUE, I ASSURE YOU. I can’t help but love every one of them for their individual personality and skills (It does help they are so annoyingly cute and handsome.) I find myself intrigued by a new fact I learn about them everyday and I really would like to befriend them GENUINELY to share interests and hang out. I can almost change a bias in U-Kiss everyday ohman (not that I’m being unfaithful haha), you really just can’t choose!
    3. They are one of the few bands who treat their fans so well. So much love and support from them and they have dedicated a lot of songs for their fans and even created a mini-album. It shows their humility and gratefulness, which is always good (:
    They are many others, some intangible feelings which can’t be said – something that ties all of it together to make us kissmes love them so much! I continue to think about it everyday as I search for the answer. Until then, U-Kiss and Kissmes fighting!

  108. The thing I love most about U-kiss would have to be how they can stay positive and cheerful even after all that work.That they can keep that energy together and get along well with each other even under the harshest of circumstances.They’re able to spend all that time together on & offset practicing &everything & still somehow mesh together like family.They seem to genuinely care greatly about those around them even if they don’t see them often or for very short periods of time. That they take the time and effort from their hectic lives to make time for their fans and others that they care about. That they haven’t forgotten how to laugh, and smile genuinely despite everything they’ve gone through to get to where they are now. Youtube Username: happybunnyntx

  109. i hope you guys can one day do a BIG BANG interview and give us a lot more footage and BTS … our boys are just the quirkiest around!!

  110. U-Kiss is like finding friends in high school, you will meet all these different people & go through these different friendships, but sooner or later you’ll find that friend who will always be there for you, through ups and downs, thick and thin; a hidden gem. Thats what U-Kiss is, although they’re not as well known compared to more popular groups, when you do find them, theyre a group you cant help but love & will treasure forever because of their warmth and genuiness, & that’s why I love U-Kiss.
    LOL but yeah. W/ no specific reason, I love them because they are who they are. And that is a group who works hard to no end and has an infinite amount of love for their fans :) No matter what, U-Kiss is a group that will never disappoint you. :3

    Hmmm…What exactly do I like about U-Kiss? To tell you the truth, I have never thought about that before. To be very very honest, I sincerely love their vocal talent, the different and awesome styles they come up with for each album, their extreme kawaii-ness, close bonds with each other, oh and not to mention everything about U-Kiss makes my heart race real fast! I really really lurve them. Everything about dearest and lovely U-Kiss is awesome and great:D They produce cool music that makes me waiting in anticipation just for their next comeback. Furthermore, they really treat their dear, darling KissMes with something that even I cannot explain. It is that bond itself that ties us KissMes to U-Kiss and dear U-Kiss to us KissMes. I really really love them to the extent that I even start squealing in delight as my heart bursts with pride whenever I see U-Kiss performing their wonderful and catchy songs. Never have I once doubted my choice of being a KissMe and supporting U-Kiss as much as I can. I don’t care if other people don’t like them or anything ‘cos U-Kiss will always and forever be the apple of my eye. They are perfect for me as they always are. U-Kiss forever and ever! U-KISS ALL THE WAY YO! HWATING U-KISS<3 MUACKZXC

  112. I can’t get over at what complete sweet hearts they are, jeez louise.

  113. Simon and Martina.. u guys did an exceptional jobs.. u guys are thorough pros … this is the beginning of good things to come… i foresee it! and i couldn’t help but laugh loud at your comment – “is this the place that we are coming to die?” What if they’re all
    waiting with hacksaws? Hahaha! No! They wouldn’t do that, right? *gulp*”… i love your sense of humor…

  114. What I love most about UKISS is how their hard work, dedication and humility has inspired so many people to chase their own dreams, to persevere against anything. My best friend is in boot camp right now and having UKISS songs in her head is what helps her. I’m so sad that I can’t listen to UKISS’ new album with her right now, instead I can only share the lyrics with her in a letter.
    I want to take this time to congratulate UKISS for all they have accomplished and to wish them well for all that they are sure to accomplish in the future. (I don’t want to say “wish them good luck” because they don’t need luck, they have talent) And also, I want to thank them for helping my friend get through boot camp.
    So many thanks and lots of well wishes to the best group in the world, UKISS!

    Lots of love,

    OMG KEVIN IS THE CUTEST DAMMIT. Everytime I watch him with you guys I just want to give him a big hug. Reminds me of why I originally had trouble picking my bias in this group, they’re all so lovable. But I love Kiseop, he’s so adorable and hardworking and I dunno … I just love him. ;u;

  116. YouTube Username: thalia0jennyIt’s really hard to just put down what you like about someone; let alone a Wonderful,Successful,Internati­onal,Fantastic,Super Star group like U-KISS who is dedicated to their work, fans, and hopefully family as well :), but I shall give it a try…U-KISS is Original, they are Everything a girl wants in a man, they are Not afraid to be themselves(like on Pops in Seoul) , Work hard(not everybody can go a whole day(24hrs) with out sleep while working), LOVE their fans(they made an album for “us”),& Just when you think that there’s no more room in your heart for anybody else, they win a place in your heart INSTANTLY(in a blink of an eye). I wish I could go on, but I don’t want to take up any more of you time “Simon and Martina”(love your hair, it always reminds me of G-Dragon)
    . So I would like to congratulate the 4 winners ahead of time, because what are the chances that I might win :) Keep Up The HARD WORK U-KISS. FIGHTIN’

    I love U-Kiss for many reasons! One: They were the first K-Pop group me
    and my sister got really into with all their catchy songs, which then
    lead us to get obsessed with the band members *Cough* I mean, what?
    Anyways, then after dying from fangirling and screaming or both over
    U-Kiss, over and over, and over again, we eventually wandered into the
    rest of the K-Pop world! And, Huzzah! We then fell in love/obsession
    with all of K-Pop (And then through you guys, into Korean culture and
    everything in general) So I am extremely thankful towards U-Kiss for
    bringing me not only to Eatyourkimchi, but K-Pop as a whole as well. (I
    think there is a reason two in that sentence? ;P) And then Three! I love
    Kevin <3 Bahahha! Although they all seem so awesome, fun,
    down-to-earth, people! :D So, I really kinda love them all. But maybe
    Kevin just a little more? Maybe? xP Even if I start to fangirl over
    other K-Pop bands and/or people in those bands, U-Kiss (And Kevin ;D)
    will always be in my heart forever and ever and everr! Hehehehe~ <3
    Especially for bringing me to you guys at Eatyourkimchi! <3 Love you
    guys! And Love U-Kiss! Love for all!! Wheeee~ (I feel like I should be
    embarassed for this comment? Oh well! <3) Thank you guys, and U-Kiss, for being so awesome! :D

    (My Youtube is JassTheSpazz, just like on here xP)

  118. they are the most honest nice guys ever!!!

  119. What I love most about U-Kiss is like … everything. From their epic music, from the ballads to the groovy dance tracks, their personalities; each are different and all are lovable, and their dedication to their work and love for their fans. They’re great and I hope in the future they can win more awards. I will always support them. 유키스 화이팅! 사랑해요~

  120. Do I need any reason for loving ukiss? I love the way they are! they really inspired me to not give up. I’m kind of a person who cannot talk and say too much but it doesn’t decrease my love for them right? ukiss fighting!

  121. eiyanna zulazhan

    I totally hate you guys for giving us such a simple question yet so hard to answer.Urhgg ><
    There are tons of reasons why I love u-kiss and honestly I don't know if I could remember all of them. I really love them. They're the first k-pop group ever that I really like (even though they're not the group that attracted me to k-pop in the first place *coughs*). I love how they really appreciate their fans, locally and internationally. They work their butts of for us and only hope for us to continue loving them. They never win any first place for their song and I can totally feel it, this song is going to win. They are so down-to-earth and if you tell them they really are popular, they won't believe it and they just feel happy to have even one fan. You can see they really love what they're doing and they're happy with it. Oh, and also I love the fact that U-kiss watches simon and martina's videos and how totally cool they are about how they review their songs. In fact, they also laughed at simon and martina's jokes. Huzzah!!! Btw, when are you guys going to let U-kiss meet Spudgy and Dr. Meemeersworth? I remember Kevin asking to meet them in your previous video *derp face*

  122. What I love most about U-KISS is how utterly cute, adorable and happy they all are.

    U-KISS’ debut was on 2008 so they’ve been around for awhile, hence, releasing a few music videos. I’ve really felt that in all of these MVs I have been able to see how truly adorable and happy they are. Even when they remain serious for MVs like “Believe”, “Doradora” or even “Stop Girl”, I feel that they’re true colors still shine through. The only MV that I didn’t see this was obviously “0330″ because they’re all good at acting which was required for that MV which had a plot.

    I’m not saying that they don’t act accordingly to their MV concept, because they do, I just feel that they’re smiles tell it all. I can always see in there MVs, live performances or interviews that they all enjoy and love what they’re doing and that they are all awesome.

    We all know that EYK and us have had some laughs at U-KISS’ expense and the amazing thing is that U-KISS is awesome enough to understand and laugh with us. This is truly awesome.

    They’re adorable. That’s a fact.

    In EYK’s first interview with U-KISS, around the 2:25 mark, AJ has the most adorable laugh. Then the rest of the group comes and joins in the fun without really knowing EYK which shows how awesome they all are.

    In this interview, “We hate, we hate…..bugs” is said by Eli and it’s hysterical. Then Kevin cutely repeats it XD. That’s so adorable. Then when they’re talking girls being in their MVs, Dongho starts randomely dancing which is extremely adorable.

    To some up, I can see through U-KISS’ MVs, performances and interviews that all of the members are cute, adorable, friendly and most importantly, happy that they are bringing joy to so many people.

  123. i love u kiss because of how much they care about there fans,how dedicated to every proformance,they try their best in each song and album and love how fun they have together.i love how the first time you meet them they said hi and that they watched your videos and even offered to do an interview.Also how they’re alway smiling when even if they may not be happy, they alway try to make their fans happy which they do for me in every u kiss video it alway makes me smile becaues of how alsome it is.

  124. Love you guys for all you do for us KPOP fans. Thank you for making us nasties, who are UKISS fans, happy with this one!!! You guys ROCK!

  125. What do I like about U-Kiss?? The real question is: what’s not to like?? I greatly enjoy their songs, their dances, the members seems very personable…I could go on for just about ever about what I like about U-Kiss. What I appreciate the most though is how they work so hard and think so much about their fans, yet they seem to be so under appreciated and don’t get the recognition that they deserve. U-Kiss makes me proud to call myself a KissMe. U-Kiss fighting!! :D
    Youtube username: Blondesaxplayer

    And I’m pretty sure you guise are trying to kill me with the amount of feels this post gave me…what a great way to end the day, a U-Kiss interview and behind the scenes footage with EYK…oh you guise. :D

  126. What I like about U-Kiss is their Determination for music. As everybody know U-Kiss doesn’t starts off well but they still put their upmost front to perform. With difficulties such as being criticize for their “Soulja Boy” image during debut, not being recognized in Korea and member change. U-Kiss never fell down. Instead they use what they have and give a better image of U-Kiss. Even with the success they had in Japan, they never forget about their Korean fans and International fans. That why I love U-Kiss. They always impress me :)

    I love U-KISS because they made me smile cause of their performance, their bond between with each members, their smile and their personality. They made me laugh every time they say such lame jokes or showing their fun side in variety shows or any other shows they’re in. They made me cry whenever they talk about their hardships, stress and their families, how they miss them and wanted to see them asap. They are such hardworking group giving us fans their music and dance for us enjoy and also making us scream at our computer screens. Even though I have never met them, they are nice and bubbly people and who could hate them? I wish them for all the best *fighting* lol <3<3

  129. What i like about Ukiss is.. Ukiss. I think love doesnt needs reasons.
    But if i have to choose one it should be their determination, they are a role model to any whos feelin down, who needs strength. They have tought me to continue fightin for my dreams, to no loose hope. They are my everyday power.

    YouTube username: breakingmyheart43I’ve said before in the comments for the Kpop charts why I love U-Kiss so much, but I’ll say it again here ^^ Sorry it’s a bit late, I was sick all day and was sleeping because I was absolutely miserable. Anyway, I love U-Kiss because they work so hard in everything they do, and when they don’t win, they work even harder. It inspires me to do better in my life, to take every fall and get back up to try again, to learn from every mistake, to take every hardship and not give up on life. Because, one day, it’ll happen. One day, the best moment of my life will happen, and if I give up too soon, when things are going bad, I won’t get to see that “best moment.” I know, it’s kind of sappy and lame, but if it wasn’t for U-Kiss and their hardworking…ness, I might have given up so long ago.

    On an unrelated note, being sick sucks. I hate throwing up…

  132. I tried to condense! ><
    I know Suju is known to be like, all best friends, and Ukiss has a few years to get there but they so warmly let in Hoon and Aj and I'll bet they still support Kibum and Xander. Ever since their debut they've changed images constantly. Sexy, cute, handsome, quirky.Although Believe was a bit genuine, I think Stop girl really gave them a style that they excel in. Ukiss has amazing vocal strength and their dancing, to me, is rivaling shinee. They're very in synch and do so well! They put in so much effort, and whenever I hear that being an idol isn't hard I think back to Ukiss first. Have you SEEN the sweat on Eli during live performances? plus i like how they're not known to be buff or sexy or anything. They're quite lanky, except Hoon and Eli and Soohyun. They treat their maknae as an equal. There's true friendship there. And they share that friendship with their fans. Kiss me's are kind because of Ukiss! It's like how you treat a kid affects how the kids comes out. Ukiss has nursed the Kissme fandom since birth and made it into this bundle of joy.
    I like how Ukiss' company handles them. Despite the work load, they're relatively free to do what they want. What's awesome is that Kevin definitely watches your videos. he's the best EYK fanboy. Another great trait for Ukiss right there. They don't treat you guys like fans but as equals.
    Truly Ukiss is an awesome kpop group. Strong, brothers, hard working. Sometimes I wonder why Eli doesn't reply to my tweet because he's so casual LOL and I forget he's kind of, well, famous. Oops. I hope they continue to go far and affect more lives like they have mine. *stands there nervously*… HWAITING!

  133. OnewtheWalnut

    I just love how they always work so hard and always try their best. They always give all their effort, no matter what’s going on, and I just love them. I’ll love even when some members are missing, and no matter what happens<3

  134. U-KISS has quickly become my favorite male K-Pop group. They are so
    amazingly talented in all aspects – singing, dancing, and even songwriting (I
    have a HUGE appreciation for artists/groups that can write their own
    music/lyrics). I love their ability to produce a large range of styles of
    music, while still being very…U-KISS. Whether it’s a slow ballad or a
    fast-paced dance track, I can usually tell it’s them. They just have a very
    distinct sound in my opinion. In addition to this, I love how sweet and
    down-to-earth they are (which you guys have proved very well with your
    interview!). While they seem super serious on stage and in music videos, it’s
    great to see them laughing and joking around off-stage, especially knowing just
    how hard they work. It makes them seem much more approachable and (for lack of
    a better word) human, rather than just being perfect “idols”. It’s hard not to
    admire them for putting so much effort and determination in what they do, while
    still genuinely enjoying it. Watching them really laugh and smile in your
    interview made me smile so much!

    Honestly, I’ve really grown to have a huge love and appreciation for
    U-KISS. Though this is kind of unrelated, their music has brought me and my
    younger brother closer together. Even though I know you guys didn’t really like
    it, “Believe” became our “song” and we would sing and dance to
    it all the time! Also, “0330″ became my brother’s favorite song ever,
    to the point where he learned to play it on the piano by ear and taught me how
    to play it as well. He was in middle school (he’s a high school freshman now)
    and I was (and still am) going to college on the other side of the country at
    the time, so it meant A LOT to me.

    As absolutely cheesy and clichéd as it sounds, U-KISS is a K-Pop group that
    has become very special to me for so many reasons. :)

  135. so I’ve tried to condense my answer so that you may actually read it….but it’s still really long, sorry :/ anyway here we are:

    What do I not love about U-KISS? Their music is amazing. Their voices are so sweet and beautiful, their ballads make me cry, their cute songs make me feel all bubbly inside and their others songs are just so much fun! They are so loveable. Like you said they just seem absolutely super nice and friendly, they always seem to get along well in a group and openly welcomed AJ and Hoon into the group. They are always smiling and acting adorable, that they make me smile too^^^ Also they are HILARIOUS. Like seriously, just so funny, they love to have fun and make others laugh which is just beautiful. They are super hardworking. I think that their humility is probably the biggest reason why I love them so much. They’ve had a hard past but have overcome that together so I think that that makes them really special and it also makes me want to support and love them even more. ALso they really really care for us Kissme’s. SO that’s why I love U-KISS^^^^^ They are just an amazing group!!!
    ps. also their dancing is like O.O wow, amazing and it’s really cool that they are beginning to help in the process of creating their songs. :D

    It’s rather hard to say what I love most about U-Kiss without repeating what has already been said by other people. Having followed U-Kiss since their debut with “Not Young”, I can say that one of the many things that I love about them is their growth as actual singers. The unfortunate part of the K-Pop music industry is that many groups tend to remain stagnant in their growth as artists and just stick with a particular sound/style that is well received by the fans. U-Kiss has been able to break away from this mold by not being afraid to delve into other music styles while still retaining their distinct U-Kiss sound.

    I also have to mention the sheer amount of dedication that U-Kiss has to both their work and their fans. It never ceases to amaze me how these boys work so hard while maintaining such cheery dispositions for their fans. I especially have to give a lot of praise for the group’s Japanese promotions. Rather than simply making a remake of one of their Korean songs for a quick buck, U-Kiss have actually followed the BoA/DBSK route and actually took the time to learn the Japanese language and create brand new songs. I could not express what delight I felt when I first heard “Tick Tack” and could actually understand what the boys were saying.

    I want to thank U-Kiss for all they have done for their fans and I hope that they will receive their long deserved recognition in Korea and that they take a much needed break with their friends and family.

  137. My love to them really ineffable. Besides from their good looks, they are very talented.

    The thing that I like most about U-KISS is their passionate.They did not give up although they faced a lot of obsticles for example when Alexander and Kibum depart from the group. They feel sad but they still work very hard. Although they debut for quite a long time, they haven’t win any music programme yet. But they did not give up their dream to become a star that shine in the future. They really work very hard so that someday they become popular(they always flying around the world).

    They also provide good fans service to their fans. ^^ (My YouTube username: ZhiyiUkissholic)

  138. What I like about U-Kiss is their teamwork, honesty, perseverance, and how they’re so down to earth. They are such amazingly hardworking and talented people. I have so much respect for U-Kiss for persevering and they have become my role models. They were the first group I completely fell in LOVE with and couldn’t pick a true bias (it’s SO HARD). (They hold first place in my heart along with TVXQ ♥) Their songs are SO catchy, and their voices and dance just blend so perfectly. If I ever met them, I just wanna hug them, say I love them, and thank them so much for everything they’ve inspired me to do in my iife. :)

  139. What I most love about U-Kiss is that I can know what they wanna say without using google translate. Their internationality. It is really cool to have a group with so many members that talk a language that is easier for their international fans (english), that can comunicate with their fans in a simple way. That one time or another I read tweets I can cheer because I know what they mean.

  140. Mike Po

    While saying that “pleasing the fans is most important” is pretty typical of K-pop groups, my favorite thing about U-Kiss is that they seem very sincere about it. Astoundingly sincere. When Martina asked them what their favorite moment was as members of U-Kiss, all of their answers related back to the fans. And while some of it did sound a little bit like fan service, most of their answers sounded like they simply couldn’t think of anything other than the fans. They seem to genuinely enjoy interacting with their fans, whether it’s via the internet or in-person. Even the critical ones like Simon and Martina! (YouTube username: Mike Po)

    What i like about Ukiss the Most is their dedication to their fans~ I love them because they are always determined to work hard even if they don’t win awards! Their songs are really good too and I always listen to them everyday simply because they’re AWESOME. Ukiss has also shown a great deal of maturity when Alexander and Kibum got replaced and I admire them so much for that ^^ I fell in love with them ever since not young and am never going to fall out of it!
    UKISS & KISSMES FIGHTING FOREVER!

  142. The reason i love ukiss. Honestly? Almost 3 years ago i was a beau2y(however u spell it) i was getting into kpop … And then i found ukiss. They just had this aura that drew me to them. Since then ive witnessed the hardships theyve been through. The good times and the bad. I feel like ive become apart of them. In all honesty, even though they dont know me. They are my best friends. Everytime i feel down one look and listen to them, i feel all bubbly inside. I love ukiss because no matter what, they always have a smile on their faces. When ever they dont win i feel a slight pain in my heart but then i see how they get back up and try even harder and it brings tears of joy to my eyes. I love their dermination and their talent and better yet i love how much they love their fans. They do all that they do just for their fans. I even love their fans tbh i think we should get an award for being the most down to earth fandom. But you know what they say, a fan mimicks the actions of theit idol. Winning may be great, but winning isnt everything and thats why ukiss will always be number 1 in my heart.
    Sincerely, ukiss biggest heart felt fan.

  146. Yuriko_94

    What do I like the most?? Besides loving their songs, I love their personalities, because of the way they follow their dreams, the way they make me smile even when it seems
    impossible, the way they make me feel so close being so far and also that they
    make me laugh so much with videos that can’t even understand a word. Wow that was cheesy.. xD but it is the truth ;D – yukari832

  147. The thing I like most about U-Kiss is that, even though they’ve never won an award for any of their songs or albums, they still continue to put out music and perform and go on tours. They love their fans so much and want to make sure they do whatever they can to make sure they’re happy. In my eyes, U-Kiss is one of the more dedicated groups out there, which is why I admire them so much. And I love the fact that they really seem close like a family. They all care about each other, and always take care of each other wherever they go and I really like seeing a group that close♥

  148. I love how UKISS is always so dedicated to both their work and their fans, and how that they continue down this path despite the obstacles they have faced over the past few years since their debut. I also love how many of the members are openly Christian, and they are helping to spread the gospel through their popularity :) They are quite the role models! UKISS fighting! ♥

    Ukiss: that kpop group who inspired me to stand up for myself? That “not so young” (dang it) group whom I fell in love with and hoping to meet them? That group who never gave up despite of their past conflicts among the members, saying “shut up” to all of those monstrous problems and continued living and being active? That beautiful group who saves me from my nightmare 03:30 in the morning? It must be fate, that I discovered them, I will keep Believing that they will achieve something big soon, STOP, girl, in the name of love, wait…….OHHHH, you’re asking me of what i love the most about them? hmm, Simply, the letter U and what it stands for in UKISS. Ubiquitous, such a complicated word that had never exist in my vocabulary until I discovered them, I wasn’t even sure if its an english word not until I searched it up. Yeah, so every time I will hear the word “Ubiquitous” Ukiss will firstly pop in my mind, funny and ironic because ubiquitous means appearing everywhere yet I haven’t seen any kpop or ukiss related thing around my place, (except probably in my room, if you know what I mean).

  151. Hello o/
    My name in YouTube is: Lallysist

    So, What I most like on U-KISS? This is such a difficult question, because, as a group, they are perfect and then when you separate them we discover so many others qualities. And this is why choosing just one is difficult… You guys are really cruel to make us, KissMe, to choose just one.. >.<
    Thinking more, I realised that the thing that I most like and Admire on U-KISS is that they are all caring about fans, like, they never make us wait to long to see a new project of them. This show how hard-working they are to make KissMe's Happy. ^^
    That's it, Kisses, Larissa :)

  152. What I love most about U-Kiss is that they are so genuine. I feel like that truly care about their fans and they work so hard for us rather than for the fame. Some groups feel so distant from the fans, but U-Kiss does stuff like film these interviews and that helps fans connect with them and love them so much more! Plus, their music and dancing is amazing. ^_^

    I even clicked and clicked the subscribe button on your channel just to make sure you get the email notification LOL…sorry for the spam :P

    this is also the answer i posted on the contest thread on your facebook page:

    i’m a returning fan of u-kiss. at first i was merely influenced by my
    triple s friends to like them and i saw every performance they had in manila.
    then kibum and alex left. at first i thought the grp would not survive
    it. BUT MY GOODNESS they survived and then some! on my own without
    influence fr any fangirl i listened to their work with Hoon & AJ and i was
    an instant fan of their music/style/lyrics/delivery specially on
    neverland. so basically it’s how they reinvented themselves and how they
    survived are what i admire about them most. i apologize if my answer is
    too long i doubt you’ll read through my entire litany but i, too, needed to ask
    myself this question and answer it on an appropriate forum.

    Sincerely, i will always add thank you
    Simon and Martina for making youtube fun for me again because you guys really did youtube worth the loading wait ^_^
    Live long and prosper eatyourkimchi

    I love U-KISS because of their music and dancing, which is why I am a fan :P But they display a tight-knit bond and a strong sense of unity which I think is important. U-KISS FIGHTING ^^& LKn3lsen

  155. why do i love U-KISS?
    Well,It’s hard to explain…There are so many things I love about them….The way they treat their fans….Unique music and lyrics…Their music has helped me during rough periods…They give me strength, support and inspire me….After all these years…. And no matter what, they never gave up…Looking back on the years and thinking about all their hard work and effort,the sacrifices they’ve made…they’ve grown so much…Watching them grow up till now it’s heartwarming…looking at how they’ve improved….how much more mature they’ve become….there’s a lot that i still don’t know about them but,i know enough,enough to develop unconditional care,love,admiration and adoration towards them,their union is my strength….even from thousands of miles away.They’ve contributed so much to my life and i have impacted it in ways i can’t even begin to describe….words are not enough but i love them…i really do.

    UKiss is a group that have endure all the changes in their group not only in their members but also in their music. Trying different genres from dance music to R&B this group have demonstrated that whatever you throw at them, they can handle it.

  157. anale aiom

    I’m not really a diehard fan of U-Kiss, I mean, I listen to their songs and know……most….of their names >.> *cough cough*
    BUT I do like their dedication to their fans. While I was watching their interview, it seemed that who they are and what they believe in while being on stage, is who they are and what they believe in in person too. They are nice and you can tell that they really care for their fans and people who support them.
    It seems that their character and resolve to stick together as a group is strong and I just really like how they act (if you know what I mean).

    I love the fact that all of the members could be successful in so many other types of jobs, yet choose to do what they love. They are very underrated as singers and dancers, but are easily one of the best groups in korea.

  159. Irina Kharatyan

    The thing I like about Ukiss is that they are THE ONLY kpop group who make me happy and smile while listening to their music. Listening to Big Bang doesn’t even make me as happy as Ukiss does. I have a playlist in my iPod that has only their songs. I call it my “pick me up” playlist! Haha so listening and watching Ukiss makes me genuinely happy. X) Ukiss fighting!!

  160. LuvzYou_ME

    I LOVE U-KISS because…. Because they worked really hard to get where they are now since the day that they debuted to right now they have really improved on there dancing and singing skills. They practically worked there butts off to get to the top and make us so called fans happy with all there doings. They are a great inspiration to many foreign fans aroung the world to even love kpop even more then before. Even though some members have left they always bring on a good attitude not matter what happens. But knowing they will always think of there fans forever and always. There the type of people that would never give-up if there dream meant the world to theme, day and night 24/7 they do all they do there best and hardest to keep us fans with a smile on ur faces every time we think and see them. To me they give off this really happy feeling inside just listening to their music just makes me go insane, even though they may be super doper tired they always make it work. U-kiss is filled with talented people that can dance and sing with a sense of humor added right in the middle an thats all they need to be the best and number kpop boy group in my heart!!! SARANGHAE YO~ U-KISS <3 <3 <3
    BTW Im reallying missing ALEXANDER,KIBUM, AND AJ RIGHT NOW :'( hope I get to see you guys in the future…LOVE MsSseoul (YOUTUBE USER)

    What I like most about U-Kiss is their absolute dedication to doing what they love most for their fans. I've been a huge fan since they debuted and I have yet to be let down by anything these boys have done. The dramatic style changes, musical changes, member changes, nothing has made me stop loving them. They have such bright, smiling faces no matter what they're doing and it really shows that they absolutely enjoy it.

    Having watched these boys grow up together, it really brings tears to my eyes thinking how far they've come and how much they've accomplished. Hoon, Soohyun, Kiseop, Dongho, Eli, Kevin, Kibum and Alexander, you all mean so much to me and I wish you all the absolute best in all of your endeavors. :)

  162. My favorite thing about U-Kiss is everything..but I’ll limit it down to a few.
    1st : They NEVER let their fans down. They’re never late to concerts, fan meets or signings. They always have awesome concerts….they give you guy signed things. They give interviews and what not. They always, always work hard on their albums, songs, mv’s.. everything.
    2nd : They’ve all endured so much and have grown so much. They are so grateful for what they have, and give out only good to people. For example,
    I’VE NOTICED THAT I’M NOT THE ONLY KISSME WHO HAS OR IS DEALING WITH SOME KIND OF DEPRESSION OR IS STRUGGLING WITH THEIR LIVES. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FOR MYSELF BUT I’M A KISSME BECAUSE I COULD RELATE TO THE MEMBERS. FOUR OUT OF THE SEVEN MEMBERS HAD SOMETHING IN THEIR LIVES THAT MOST K-POP IDOLS OUT THERE HAVEN’T DEALT WITH. SOOHYUN AND HIS FATHER DYING LEADING HIS FAMILY INTO A VERY ROUGH TIME, KISEOP AND HIS DEPRESSION, ELI AND HIS FAULTY CONTRACT AND POOR CONDITION IN CHINA, AJ STUDYING SO HARD JUST TO MAKE HIS PARENTS PROUD EVEN AS A TRAINEE AND JUST CRACKING WHEN HE DIDN’T GET HIGH GRADES, AND THE FIVE MEMBERS DEALING WITH KIBUM AND XANDER LEAVING. U-KISS REALLY HAS GONE THROUGH THINGS THAT SOME CAN RELATE TO WITH SOMEHOW. WHICH IS WHY I THINK WE ARE SO LOYAL. THE MAIN REASON WHY I’VE BEEN A KISSME SO LONG? BECAUSE IF I EVEN THINK ABOUT CHANGING MY ALL TIME FAVORITE GROUP, I’D FEEL SO LOST. U-KISS HAS KEPT ME TOGETHER THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES, AND I REALLY THANK THEM FOR THAT.

    That came out a lot longer than I expected…^^;

    The thing I love most about U-Kiss is their friendliness. Yes that may be such a simple answer but honestly, you can tell through interviews like this, variety shows, and even their music that they are friendly people. They are also very humble and appreciative towards KissMe’s by always dedicating songs to them and showing their love by trying their best not to disappoint us. The ability to love people who they don’t even know personally is a rare gift and it’s great to see that U-Kiss bears that gift.

  165. Rowena Li

    I don’t
    really think that there’s one thing I can single out about U-Kiss that I love
    about them, because they’re just /that/ amazing, seriously. In the past four
    years that they’ve been together as U-Kiss they’ve already been through so
    much… They debuted in the same year as SHINee, 2PM, 2AM and Davichi as a
    6-member group, and Kiseop joined them later on; the member change last year
    when Kibum and Xander left, and AJ and Hoon joined; debuting in Japan and working
    hard to actually learn Japanese for themselves instead of always relying on a
    translator; even now it seems like U-Kiss has been promoting almost non-stop,
    with only maybe a week or two of rest before releasing another album or single,
    or having a concert somewhere… AJ went off to study psychology in New York at
    Columbia University, and U-Kiss /still/ came back, promoting as a 6 member
    group now for Stop Girl… They’ve all had plenty of personal things to deal
    with, both pre-debut and early on after they debuted. All the hardships that
    they’ve faced since the beginning have really paid off…

    They’re so
    determined and devoted to make their fans happy… They haven’t let me down
    with any of their comebacks or songs, and all of their albums are amazing, even
    if I might not /love/ all of their songs. They’ve been working so hard ever
    since they debuted, I haven’t really been into k-pop long enough to know this
    for sure, but I kind of feel like the only sort of long “break” or
    “hiatus” that they’ve had was when the member change was going to
    happen last year… Since Hoon and AJ have joined, I feel like they haven’t
    really gotten a real vacation, where they really get to rest… they came back
    with 0330 and Bran New Kiss, and right after that, Neverland came out… After
    promoting Neverland and Someday, they went to Japan, releasing Tick Tack, A
    Shared Dream and Forbidden Love. After their Japanese promotions, they had a
    Korean comeback with DoraDora and Believe, after that while they were preparing
    for their Japanese Arena Tour… I feel like I just listed a bunch of their
    discography, but the point that I’m trying to get at is that they’ve been
    working so hard all, releasing single after single; album after album. After
    they finish promoting for Stop Girl, they’re releasing another single in Japan
    at the beginning of November. Being an idol isn’t easy, and I admire U-Kiss so
    much for working so hard all the time, even though they’re probably so tired. I
    remember even back in the impromptu interview you had with them on Jeju Island,
    Eli said something about not having any days off, except on big holidays where
    no one goes to work. After all, they can’t work if none of the staff go to work. Even if they are tired, they don’t show it during their performances, or in interviews.

    U-Kiss is
    the group that really got me into k-pop, with 0330 and ManManHaNi. I think it’s
    safe to say that because of U-Kiss, I’ve been able to meet and make friends
    with so many wonderful people… U-Kiss brought my best friend and I together, giving us something more to bond over and talk about. U-Kiss is always going to be special
    to me because they were the first group that I really liked, the first group
    that really caught my attention and enticed me into the k-pop world. There
    really isn’t something that I can label as what I like the most about them.
    Watching Chef’s Kiss and U-Kiss Vampire just made me love them even more
    because of who they are and what their personalities are like offstage. U-Kiss
    is such a hardworking, passionate and dedicated group; they interact with their
    fans whenever they can and all of the members are so talented too. Kevin and
    Eli would tweet fans in their spare time, and Eli even had a tumblr. They can’t
    not make me smile, even when I’m feel absolutely horrible. They’re all such wonderful, talented people,
    and I love everything about them; I think I could write a whole essay about what
    I love about U-Kiss, but I think I’ll just leave it at that before I end up writing a book…

    Much love
    from Canada, 유키스 화이팅! 많이 사랑해!

    I really LOVE U-KISS they are REALLY hard working , they REALLY care about their fans they do their best for kiss-me’s (like myself :) they have a REALLY great friendship even thought alexander and kibum left they are still trying their best those are just some reasons I like..LOVE them!!! U-KISS FIGHTING <3

  167. Neverland is def. my favorite, now this song can be my second favorite because..it’s cool

  168. kyoungri8

    what I like most about U-Kiss is how hard they work and they always have bright smiles on their faces even when they’ve never won any music awards. the fans are fighting hard for them to win so its sad that they arent as recognized in korea. i also love how dorky and funny all of the members are. I feel like i could be their friends haha

    @8kyoungri3

  169. What I like about U-Kiss is that how they never give up in trying something new. They had try different genres before and for me they kinda fit into different genres because they have different members who have different abilities which gives colours to U-Kiss. One thing about U-Kiss is they are able to capture me with their music. I’m not such a hardcore U-Kiss’s fan before, but frankly speaking, I like their music. With a few members English abilities, they are able communicate well with fans. Even if it takes a very long journey, I believe that they will be recognized more in their own country, Korea :) U-Kiss fighting!!

  170. Im those people that suck at explaining, but here we goo OTL

    What I love about U-KISS?? No need to ask really, what is there not to like?
    U-KISS is growing fast, not just in age(still awesome guys),, but also, in their new music, styles, and basically everything. U-KISS is basically different than other bands. I have noticed they have been realizing nonstop albums/music, and even MVs this past year. Oh gosh, I want you guys to take it easy, but it seems like all this is for the fans. Theres bands that do the same, but UKISS, oh gosh, you guys are different. OTL<333
    Even in like, new songs, its like, they know that, their fans rnt just "asian cultural", also Latin, and American, and etc. The fact that you guys have fun while making all this possible for all of us, even those that cant see you guys all the way to Korea(I live in the US(California) QAQ)…One day, I DO HOPE,you guys can come over by where I am, for sure, ill do my best to go see you guys ;U;
    It just sucks, im one of those families that have it hard on them ATM. i cant buy your guys' your albums and buy concert tickets, and all those things. But right now, im trying my best at school,so that when one day,you guys DO come over here, I am able to see you guys in RL QUQ

    You guys are the BEST, please just dont over work yourself, you guys are humans too. Love you all <333

    FF, and hope AJ is not doing anything badd in NY hurr hurr – u – <33

    Thank you for making all this possible Simon and Martina <33
    YOU GUYS ROCKZ!!

  171. What do I not love about U-KISS?

    Firstly: Their music is amazing. Their voices are so sweet and beautiful, their ballads make me cry, their cute songs make me feel all bubbly inside and their others songs (like oppa hates you songs) are just really fun to dance crazily around to and relieve a lot of my stress in a non-violent way and no one understands what I am singing about, so it’s great! :P

    Secondly: They are so loveable. Like you said they just seem absolutely super nice and friendly, they always seem to get along well in a group and openly welcomed AJ and Hoon into the group. They are always smiling and acting adorable, that they make me smile too^^^ Also they are HILARIOUS. Like seriously, just so funny, they love to have fun and make others laugh which is just beautiful.

    Thirdly: They are super hardworking. They always try so hard and it makes me cry when they don’t win any awards because they seriously deserve them^^ You said it, they really deserve a break. They have been through a lot but still persevere; no one liked them in the beginning, it would have been soo difficult for them, did you know that Kiseop was in real depression and even thinking about suicide because no one would except him. They’ve had a hard past but have overcome that together so I think that that makes them really special and it also makes me want to support and love them even more.

    I think that their humility is probably the biggest reason why I love them so much.

    Finally: They really care for us Kissme’s. They put so much effort into making us happy and work so hard to create awesome songs for us. I’m not sure how to explain it, but I just feel like they really care for us. Like Believe was the special to kissme album and AJ even wrote that song^^^^

    SO that’s why I love U-KISS^^^^^ They are just an amazing group!!!
    ps. also their dancing is like O.O wow, amazing and it’s really cool that they are beginning to help in the process of creating their songs. :D

    I don’t understand, I tried to leave a comment on google+ but there’s no option to leave a comment? T_T

  174. At first I doubted about writing something
    because I thought “I am not going to win”, but I would not be a
    KissMe if the only motivation for me would be the certainty of winning right?
    So here I am. What I love the most about U-Kiss is the happy and friendly way
    they work together to fulfill their dreams. I love seeing how dedicated and
    responsible they are with their work but most importantly how lovingly they
    support each other in
    every moment of their careers, most importantly in the difficult ones. The
    strong friendship they have built makes me happy, moves me and motivates me to
    keep dreaming. As a KissMe I want them to feel proud of me as I am proud of
    them. U-Kiss … fighting!!!

    Love the relationship you two seemed to have built with U-Kiss. Their music is always awesome and they seem really nice and down-to-earth! Now, considering the fact that you are on good terms with them, can you bring them over to Toronto next time you come back for a visit?? teehehe ;p
    Oh! And are you two coming to Super Wave Korea in T.O. again this year?

  176. In their interviews they seem very humble and kind. They seem like great role models and arent afraid of showing their silly side, which I personally love the most =D Plus, their music is amazing to dance to. CChaskaNNawi

    I find the fact that Kiseop kept gripping the back of Eli’s chair during the interview really quite amusing. xD <3

    What do I love most about U-Kiss?

    Answer: Everything

    U-Kiss is one of the most dedicated,
    strong-willed, talented, and sweetest groups. U-Kiss has endured in the music industry
    for 4 years. After going through member changes, in which U-Kiss loss some
    fans, U-Kiss still stayed strong. They try to improve and give KissMe’s a
    better U-Kiss each comeback.

    U-Kiss has been having constant comebacks
    and promotions in Korea and Japan. Getting their name out there is important
    for them. Through tears and smiles they keep going. They always hold on to
    their dream of getting an award on a music program and being acknowledged as a
    top idol group.

    U-Kiss is talented and they don’t need an
    award to show that they are a top group. They have been awarded other awards
    that are bigger than a music award.

    U-Kiss is my top idol group in my heart. They have been through
    much. They ignored the haters and strived through the four years. I love how
    U-Kiss is hardworking, dedicated, and resilient.

    There’s not one thing I like most about U-Kiss. They are U-Kiss
    and I, a KissMe, love everything about them.

    What kind of question is “what do you like about U-KISS?” To be honest, I believe “like” should be changed into “love.” There’s nothing about these boys I dislike or hate. I absolutely love them to pieces. If you were to verbally ask me, “what do you like U-KISS?” I think I would go on for hours and hours. First of all, the things I sincerely like about U-KISS are their dedication, patience, hard work, and endurance. Even though U-KISS is known as “the nugu group” or “the group that never gets #1”, these boys have never once stopped of what they’ve strived for. Each and everyday, they work so hard together to show their gratitude to Kiss Me’s and share the passion they love- music. Soohyun even stated, “Today, however, I’m willing to die on stage,” during “Neverland” era when he was diagnosed with vocal nodules. Both Eli and Dongho had injuries from dancing, but nothing stopped them to keep trying. Kiseop was close to attempting suicide because no entertainment company would take him in, but he kept auditioning. Kevin faced a foreign barrier because he was from California and had to adapt to Korean culture; many people said, “Go back to your home country!” but all he did was look at them and give them a smile. Hoon had antis say, “How dare you replace Kibum?” and he said nothing but, “I will try my best on stage.” AJ studied for hours just to get into the school he wanted to attend and he did- he chose education over the rise to fame in Japan.
    There are more examples, but whenever I was in depression, I discovered U-KISS and they helped me get right back up with their song, “Someday.” I was truly moved by their performances and you can tell in their eyes, their passion and dedication to music was showing. Their love for fans is both so heartbreaking and heartwarming. They actually have to say, “KissMe! Don’t cheat on us! We will work hard for your love if you cheat!” And it breaks my heart whenever they say this. U-KISS is a talented group who can sing, dance, and rap. When one member falls, the others help him get right back up. Their teamwork is truly, truly amazing. They bleed and sweat hard work. Whenever I was translating “A Shared Dream”, one line goes, “But I’m still hoping my never ending-dream would be known to you. Someday, we will meet again.” Also meaning, “I’m wishing you keep having a never-ending dream.“ A lot of their songs encourage me so much to never give up and work hard for what I want.
    Never once, have they whined about not getting acknowledgement. If you were to dig up dirt on U-KISS, the worse you can find is they wanting to play Diablo 3 on the day of the release, but they were in Columbia. They all have phenomenal talent. All of their songs fit my taste palette. I really like their ballads and electronic songs. Whenever I’m having a bad day, I turn on “Believe” (the Japanese ballad) and their soothing voices just makes me smile. They’re one of the few groups who let their English speaking members speak and sing in English, and I’m very happy about that (because no one wants Konglish lol!).
    On Twitter, I smile like an idiot with a huge grin whenever they tweet. These boys are a bunch of dorks. They have so much fun and charisma on stage that they don’t need to impress anybody but themselves. I can’t believe they’re even human because they work nonstop! Even though they may not be the most popular group in South Korea, I find them the most hardworking group in my dictionary. They truly are Ubiquitous Korean Idols Super Stars. I guess you can say that is what I love- not like- about U-KISS. I am proud to be a Kiss Me.

  181. U-kiss isn’t just another kpop group to me now as they were in the beginning. I remember from the first time I watched Bingeul Bingeul, I instantly fell in love with these guys. Following their journey since then, and officially being a self proclaimed Kiss-Me up until now, allowed me to understand, enjoy, and emphasize with the journeys and trials they’ve faced. I love their personalities, their attitudes, and the fact that they love everything they do. I love how they always persevere to make better and better music. I love how earnest and humble they seem. Finally, I love the love, and appreciation they have for their fans. I don’t see them just as idols who live in an almost far away dimension anymore, I see them as actual human beings whom I would love to actually meet.
    Forever a Kiss-Me, since 2010. ^_^

  182. What do I love about UKISS? I don’t think it’s possible to pick just
    one thing. I remember the first day I discovered U KISS when I listened
    to the song Neverland. Everything about it was breathtaking. Their
    looks, voices, the amazing dancing. Within a few days i’d learned them
    by name and personality and listened to just about all their songs.
    Though, I’m a fan of almost band in KPOP, UKISS is by far my favorite
    and i’ll no doubt love them forever.

    They’re easily one of the
    most talented and hard working artist today. Even though, it breaks my
    heart they aren’t more famous, I know that they will be someday because
    they might not be as well known as some other groups but they’ve given
    up.It’s only motivated them to work even harder and show the fans
    supporting them even more love. They’ve always done their absolute best
    or Kiss Me’s even when it hasn’t been easy and they’ve gotten through a
    rough debut, member changes and many hard times throughout their
    careers, but they only continue to improve and get better with each new
    song, disappointments never slowing them down.

    They’ve even
    mastered singing in Japanese well, and they travel to many countries to
    meet their foreign fans. Having members that can speak in different
    languages helps them communicate with as many as they can:))

    Anyone can see that the members are kind and have wonderful
    personalities, and it’s clear that their love for their fans is
    completely genuine. I hope they know how much their fans love and
    support them too ^^ I love that UKISS members are also very caring and
    supportive of one another. They really are like a family. Whenever i’ve
    seen a member of UKISS cry, there’s always been another member there to
    comfort them and wipe away their tears. When Alexander and Ki Bum left,
    it was clearly hard for them, but they’ve still stayed close and
    supported them. They’ve since kept up their spirits and added two great
    new members and returned better than ever.

    I feel that UKISS
    is truly amazing at everything they do, whether it’s a soulful ballad or
    a song that just makes you want to get up and dance. I love everything
    about them, from Soo Hyun’s fearlessness, Kiseop’s man bra, Dong Ho’s
    hallucinations and freezer solos, Eli’s bathroom creeping, Kevin’s girl-
    group dancing and sweet personality, Hoon’s awkward hand twirling –
    eating habit, and AJ’s math lyrics.

    But let’s not forget the
    vertical beds, wall walking, spray-painted couches, face rubbing,
    melting UKISS ice cubes, giant clocks , randomly appearing dead ex
    girlfriends, multi- colored or bedazzled suits,necklaces made of sea
    weed?, fancy cars,the meow in Man Man Ha Ni, awkward engrish
    intros,underwater and bathtub scenes, oversized sweaters and angel
    wings, stairwells that lead into the beyond,basketball playing, ‘
    homeless’ implying music video sets, and mordney presenting.

    ** I think I might have an OBSESSION. My heart’s going BANG BANG BANG
    and my head’s going 빙 을 빙 을. UKISS please TALK TO ME, I can’t live
    WITHOUT YOU. when my world is dark you LIGHT IT UP. I know it’ll be OK!
    if you just TAKE ME AWAY. 4U, I would give the whole world. I LIKE YOU
    so much, let me be the one. I’m going 도 라 도 라, why can’t love be that
    easy? the day BEFORE YESTERDAY , I awoke at 0330, because we had A
    SHARED DREAM. I know it’s FORBIDDEN LOVE and i’m NOT YOUNG , but I still
    BELIEVE that SOMEDAY we’ll meet in NEVERLAND and party ’til we’re out
    of time ***

  184. (Youtube: cheeseeker)U-Kiss was my first ever kpop group that I
    listened to (back in 2009 I think), and they’ve kind of reached the “long-lost-brother” status in my head. The reason why is because for so long I’ve watched them struggle and tried to help them grow while getting to know them as an awesome group of individuals–and they’ve lifted me up in a time where I felt like there was no hope. I’m devastated every time they cry on camera or look like they’re exhausted from shooting, but I’m so proud of them whenever they work through things and put out such excellent material with smiles on their faces and such friendly attitudes. Their devotion to their fans and their dedication to make things look good for ordinary people like me really makes me feel so thankful. It crushes me when I see them lose on programs. It’s
    not because I want to like a successful band, but because I want my
    “brothers”, who have done so much for me, to be happy and feel the love
    that each and every Kiss Me brings to them every day.
    I can recall a U-kiss
    song to help me back up on my feet in every situation. My father was in two major car accidents this year, and when I was in the hospital I really needed someone to rely on because there was no one there with me. I almost had a panic attack, but when I played some of U-Kiss’ songs, I felt calmer and remembered all of the effort that those people give everyday without complaining. Their music also has the opposite effect on me–when I am happy I will play some
    upbeat pop-y songs of theirs and my mood will be further elevated! I can bust out to ‘Miracle’ on the streets with a super happy grin on my face and laugh at all the pigeons on my way home from a hard day! They
    have that sort of special magic to them–reviving the human part of me
    through their art and love. They ease my loneliness and remind me that there are people that care about me even though they’ve never ever even met me. I am so thankful for all of their hard work and I just wish that I could return the favor. I feel like they’ve really changed my life.

  185. I love the feeling of familiarity I get with them. Even though there is this barrier between us as idol and fan, it doesn’t feel like it. When I see them working hard, more than cheering on an idol, I feel like I’m cheering on a friend. Extremely handsome, talented, hardworking friends but friends nonetheless. I love that. I don’t get that feeling any other idol. That makes so special to me.

  186. Ajumma fan here. (youtube subscriber: HongKongYan1)
    I wanted to comment from a slightly different perspective – in fact, I wonder if they know that they have …elder fans. (ha!)
    There is a quality of *earnestness* about UKISS which is delightful. They seem to be genuinely engaged in working to support each other and to please/thank their fans. PLUS they are seriously talented…there are no ‘filler’ guys whose job is to make the group fill the stage.
    Each member brings a unique quality to the whole and I’m stunned that they have not been rewarded with industry acclaim. (**Well, actually I’m not, it’s more than evident to anyone with common sense that the Music Show awards are pre-purchased by the BIG Name companies) It’s my hope for them that they are able to shrug-off that kind of stuff and just keep doing with they are doing….being talented, being humble, appreciating the fans.
    I’m sure most of the young fans here would like to smother them with hugs & kisses — *this* fan would like to make them all a HUGE, nutritious dinner, get the playstation set up with their favorite games…and make sure they got a good night’s sleep, because they work so hard.
    Ajumma is sending a *tickle under the chin* to each and every one. ~ ❤

  187. What do I like about U-Kiss?
    Honestly, where do I begin? I love everything about them – how they never give up, how supportive they are of one another, how much they truly love all kissmes, and that they’re a family, and their music.

    But your question is what do I like most about U-Kiss. I honestly don’t know if I can choose just one thing. They brighten my life, and were my light when I was in a really dark place. They (Kiseop especially) brought me out of the darkest point in my life, and I shall be eternally grateful to them. I haven’t been a kissme as long as some, but these past months have been some of the best of my life. I never knew that it could get to this point, where I could love those 7 boys almost more than my own life.

    -They never give up, no matter what is thrown at them, they face it head on and persevere through it. They may never have won number 1, but to me, that doesn’t matter, as they’re always number 1 in my heart. They don’t cry or whine about not winning, but instead they congratulate the other groups who have and celebrate with them. And they just work harder for their next comeback. Even though they have gone through hard times, they always find a way to smile. That is another aspect that I love most about them – they are doing what they love to do, and you can see that through every album that they make.

    -They are all super supportive of each other. They care for each other so much, that it makes my heart just swell with love even more. They’re always there for each other, and supported Jaeseop’s decision to go to NY to study. (I was so happy when they mentioned him in the interview and that they talk and correspond with one another. I honestly teared up at that part, and was so happy because it put an ease to the constant worry that I had.) They support Alexander and Kibum, and are excited when they chance upon meeting each other, even if it’s for a brief time due to their rigorous schedules.

    -Their love for kissme is unbelievable. They’re always tweeting or asking how all of us are, and that we continue to support them (which of course we will). It makes me so happy that they’re able to travel and meet more of their fans, and that their promotions in Japan are going well. My wish is for them to be able to go everywhere so that they have the chance to meet all of their fans all over the world. We are all truly a family, our love driving the boys further each and every day. ♥

    -Lastly, their music. This, if I had to choose, would probably be the one thing that I love most about them. Their music is absolutely amazing; they never fail to amaze me. They aren’t afraid to break away and try new styles – whether good or bad, we’re always supporting. But their music is diverse for all types of moods. Whether I feel happy, angry, sad or depressed, their music is ALWAYS able to bring me out of a funk. I didn’t know about kpop until I heard U-Kiss’ Tick Tack (I know it was Japanese but that song got me into them), and from then on I fell in love. I began to listen to their music everyday, and it is what partially saved my life. There are still days where I just want to close myself in and fade into the dark and never emerge again, but then I think about U-Kiss, and what Kiseop went through and then I play their music and almost immediately the cloud is lifted. Suffice to say, their music inspires me to continue on and live my life to the fullest, and to not dwell but fight through all of the hardships in life.

    I love everything about U-Kiss, that’s what it comes down to. I’m so glad that I get to be a part of this amazing and wonderful fandom and get to support the boys in everything that is to come in the future. ♥ Kissme forever~~

    Also, thank you so much Simon and Martina~~ I always look forward to your videos. I’m so glad you got the chance to watch the filming and were able to interview them (without the camera dying this time haha). But in all seriousness. Thank you so much. You guys will always have my support ^^ (I also apologize for the length of this post~) U-KISS FIGHTING!!!! ♥

    I love how they are really into promoting internationally by really travelling to many parts of the world including south america. and they have really distinct music styles which seperates them from the mainstream kpop trend. i love them!

  189. I can’t really list all of the reasons I love U-KISS because I’d be here for EONS, but mostly they just seem really down to Earth and they seem to get along really well. I mean, they’ve gone through several member changes over the years, yet they always managed to stay close, adapt to any situation and still stay awesome. I guess you could say they’re like the chameleon of k-pop ;) But yeah, they’re also totally cute and adorkable so there’s that <3 U-KISS HWAITING!!!

    hehe i left a comment on youtube (neshaneasha11) buuuut it didn’t let me finish it>____<
    it seems every place that they go to they keep that bond with their fans. always smiling at them and making them feel special! another is they have worked so hard to make their fans happy with there songs, with their dance, song, charisma, passion all mixed together! i hope that they continue what they are doing at this time! hey, it is working my mom even loves you guys!!!!! keep it up U KISS FIGHTING<3!

  191. disqus_xAsNWWTNpQ

    Wow. I just went through the pages of comments, and there’s so many sweet and thoughtful fans… I feel partly nervous that I have to compete with all these people. >__>;;;I watched the interview video, and seeing them talk about how they’re always nervous touches me. You see how charismatic and focused they are onstage, but then you see them behind the scenes and they’re just normal people; down-to-earth, awkwardly adorable, and anxious about their fans. Don’t worry about us~ We just want you guys to be happy and successful. ^^
    I’m a fan of many Kpop groups. I have HUGE respect for everyone in the kpop industry. But with U-KISS, it always feels more personal. Like I said above, I feel like I’m watching close friends performing on that stage…. INCREDIBLY talented, very good-looking, and hard-working friends that are always aware that you’re out there.
    So thank you, U-KISS, for letting me be a part of that family.

    Hugs and kisses from a fan in California!

    you guys are so lucky to have that experience! lol for the first couple minutes i was trying to figure out who was missing…XD so what is aj doing tho?

  193. I love U-Kiss because they work so hard for their fans even have songs dedicated to us KissMes and even though they dont really win on the charts they dont give up and always comeback stronger. When I first got into Kpop I was constantly changing my bias kpop groups but ever since I discovered U-Kiss they have always been my #1 Also dont forget amazing lines like Eli’s “you make me tingle tingle” and AJ’s “dont deny our r square pi” :D

  195. I’m actually a really dedicated DBSK fan and I’ve made a
    rule to myself that I would only like only ONE kpop group, no exceptions.
    Interestingly enough, somehow UKISS managed to break that rule win a spot in my heart.

    I could’ve liked BIG BANG, B2ST, INFINITE, SUPER JUNIOR…etc. But I’ve come to realized that UKISS captured my heart because I feel like UKISS is one of
    the ONLY k-pop idols groups out there that actually seems approachable and down
    to earth. Their ability to speak multiple languages has not only impressed me
    but also made me feel a lot closer to them. They seem more like friends than
    celebrities. They have given so much to their fans and have continued to love
    them and appreciate them even when they’ve never won #1. They continue to work even harder in what
    they’re doing. I can just see so much passion every time they come out to
    perform. Even during tough times where they struggle, they still put on a smile. And in turn, I cry in place of them. Watching them grow in both maturity and physically has made me feel like a proud mother. (Even though I’m their age…) Although they weren’t that recognized in the beginning, their hard
    work has paid off and become more and they become more well know by every album.

    They’re probably the ONLY kpop groups that have truly
    inspired me to work harder in everything I do. DBSK has NEVER made me feel this way at all. I’m proud to say that now that I have become a
    KISSME and that UKISS will be the ONLY exception in my heart.

    ON THE SIDE NOTE:
    I’m Very GRATEFUL for the both of you to have taken time out of your day to make these videos for us to watch. I know they take hours to edit, film, and write. And it’s a lot of HARD work. Thank you. I’ll be a dedicated nasty LOL. One day, I’ll be sure to support you guys somehow… :D but as for now, I’m the broke college student. I love all your jokes and I truly believe that only you two can pull of doing jokes like that on kpop songs without getting bashed (?) hehe. I’m forever thankful from the bottom of my heart. ^^

  196. I LOVE U-KISS. I mean I really love U-KISS because is the first and only K-POP group I can love EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM without stop. Not just like: OH, men! Kevin is so gorgeous! Kiseop is so perfect! and such but like: Oh, men, they’re are so freakin funny, kind, gentleman, adorkable, respectful, hardworking, awkward, connected to each other.
    Even when they came from a very little company they earned through the years and hard work, a name.
    People can think that they’re underrated and all because they didn’t win a award yet. But I think that fact is what made them stronger and stronger and persevering… what they are now… what the KissMes love more of them.

    I’m not doing this because the physical album because I already buy the digital. I’m doing this because I want you to know that I love them proudly.

    Well, okay, I would be very happy if I win kkk. Autographs! ♥

    P.S: sorry, english isn’t my native language.

    The song’s chorus launched me onto a new obsession with The Supremes. lol

  199. proud kissme here ^_^
    if i were to list every reason of why i love ukiss it would never fit how ever the biggest reason ive been a kissme since the beginning is because of their passion and how they NEVER give up <333

    i love you ukiss

  200. OMG…Simon and Martina, first of all, thank you for taking the time to make this interview and THANK YOU U-KISS for doing this interview with your crazy schedule…
    Why do I love U-KISS? Do you have an hour or two? haha jk…or am I?
    Anyways, I love U-KISS the most out of all k-pop artists for various reasons…one of them being that they were the first link to the beautiful world of K-pop..by that I mean, I saw their program on Arirang i.e. Pops in Seoul, when they were the three beautiful, funny, hilarious and so full of energy MCs…and then I was hooked into the K-pop scene….they made me fall in love with this genre….but more importantly, they made me want to learn more about these talented artists that brought such good music…Seriously, every episode they made me lol so much…I was always looking forward to watching them during the week…
    Then there was one episode, where they showcased their own MV…and I was ‘le gasp must find every song from them that I can find on Youtube’ and that song that will always have a special meaning to me is Bingeul, Bingeul….
    I love their dance moves, their upbeat songs, their unique personalities…their interactions with each other and above all else, their unwavering commitment, not only to the industry but to us lucky fans…
    U-KISS has been the only group that has made me want to watch their reality shows…I saw U-KISS Vampire (insert Mortney joke here) and they are just so happy and young….which I guess I tend to forget that because of the image they project with each new album that they release….shoot I was really surprised when I found out they are all at least two years younger than me….the shock still befunddles me…it makes me wonder how far they’ll get when they become Senior idols
    I love that they are so unique, each has his own quirky habits and good qualities…that make me want to find them in my special someone one day (Hint Hint Eli XD)
    I love how they can shatter that idol image so easy just by being their goofy selves…right Mr. Pigeon? Kevin?
    I love that they are so down to earth, knowing that even though they are famous worldwide, they can still be humble towards others and kind and not stuck-up or mean…like how Kevin personally greeted S&M at the music set.

    But the thing that sets them apart in my mind, is that even though since their debut, they have never won an award in Korea, they have never let that destroy their dream of performing for their fans…that they have not given up and just quit thinking it’s hopeless….they continue to improve themselves and that shows in their performances and albums….and that’s it.:)
    I think I just wrote an essay…and if you gave me more time, I would probably write something longer…but I’ll stop now…..
    oh, my youtube name is :rebeldemoongazer8

  201. The thing I love most about U-Kiss (although I love many things about U-Kiss) is how down to earth they are. They must be able to tell, from the the screaming fans, to millions of views on YouTube, to the constant dominance on eatyourkimchi Kpop charts, how loved they are. But they don’t let it get to their head. You can see Kevin’s face light up when he sees Martina and Simon on Jeju and he offers a spontaneous interview. It’s like they don’t even know that they’re famous.
    Sometimes you see interviews with celebrities (North American or Korean) and you can tell that the celebs know they’re all that. You don’t get any of that with U-Kiss. They don’t rely on their good looks or current roster of fans, they still always try to improve and be better. They are international idols, but they never stop trying their hardest to make ther fans proud even though their fans will love them no matter what. When you see U-Kiss in interviews or on shows, they seem like normal people. They aren’t stuck up or rude. They are goofy, fun and humble. They are more like a group of friends having fun than a bunch of world famous superstars.
    Although I love their music and dancing, it is their personalities that really made me a KissMe. I am so proud of how far they have come, through so much, and have still maintained ear humanity and sense of humor. That is my favorite thing about U-Kiss.

  202. My youtube name is NaNa Chu : I Love U-Kiss for their music and sweet personalities and their passion for working hard and never giving up but they became really precious and dear to me when Kevin tweeted that he cares so much for KissMe and that he prays for us, I dont know why but i cannot describe how happy and warm i felt that these boys care so much for us. Their undying Love for their fans made me a devoted KissMe and I hope I can give them back even just a little of the strenght they give me everyday<3

    What I like the most about U-Kiss is that they’re living proof that by being nice, working hard and doing what you love you’ll get successful eventually. Too often I see people willing to step on each other, cheat or resort to not so legal measures in order to get what they want as fast as possible. But people like U-Kiss are there to prove that by doing things the right way you will also get there, even if it takes longer. They show to us that patience and not giving up are necessary to achieve what we want. They must be some of the nicest and most down to earth Kpop groups out there, and that’s why even if they’re not my favorite music wise, they are in terms of personality. All this makes them be the only Kpop group I genuinely care about :)

  204. I can see that Kevin is a fan of you guys!

    Yeah…

    Anyway!

    Honestly, when I first got into kpop, U-Kiss weren’t my favorite group. But as I got to know more about them, they seem like genuinely GOOD persons. I can also see that they really care about their fans. A lot.
    Even though they haven’t won a price yet, they don’t give up. Even after this long. I really respect them for that.
    Not to mention that their dancing and singing skills is amazing, they’re good looking (should not mention that, considering I like to keep people humble), and their music is awesome:P – But what I mentioned in this paragraph is not THE reason I love them.

  206. I don’t think you guys will see this comment at all, it’s like 5AM in South Korea right now :P
    What I love most about U-KISS is how loving and caring and nice they are.
    The members would take the time to reply a whole bunch of their fans tweets, and they like say they love KISSME like everyday.
    I went to U-KISS’ fan meeting in Taiwan last year. When I was getting the members to sign my poster, Kevin and Eli noticed that I wasn’t from there and had a little conversation with me. I felt that that they really do care about every single one of their fans out there. Later that night, I had the opportunity to interact with the members on stage. I teamed up with Hoon. We played a game and whatever happened he had to carry me. He politely asked me if it was ok or not. I was like OMG srsly it’s not like I’m ever gonna say no to you. Anyways they are just so cute and so polite and so nice to talk to and so playful that sometimes thay don’t even look like they are famous people, just some nice guys in the neighborhood. I think they have the best fandom and thet deserve it!

  207. I love UKISS for their handwork, dedication, and perseverance. Even though they haven’t won #1 on a music show yet (which I think is impossible to believe), they still continue to push through and put 200% of their effort and energy into everything they do up to this point. They’re always striving to put on their put best performance for their fans and it’s really amazing and admirable to see that. I also love them for their music and unique personalities. It’s hard not to fall for these boys!!

    What I love about U-kiss.. Where do I even start? First of all they are so hardworking and dedicated to their art and inspire me to keep going for my dream. Also, they are amazing performers, singers, and dancers. They really care about us fans and I really admire that. Also, they aren’t fake like another kpop groups. They really love what they do and each other. So Sweet! I’m so excited to see what is to come for U-kiss. Forever and ever, always a Kiss-me. ♥

  209. U-KISS has an exponential level of patience and endurance. I sincerely think they’re one of the most talented and hardworking of the k-pop industry that have yet to be fully appreciated and recognized for their work. It is almost injustice I say! They’re a role model on “how to keep it real” in an industry that reeks of fakeness. I like that they have the ability to shine in performances and be exactly who they are as artists and as people. So overall, I like that they ARE THEM and NO ONE else -Cocat22

  210. What I love best about U-Kiss is their music videos. I always find them interesting and entertaining! I love them even more now knowing how much work/time goes into making them. I also love how the members of U-Kiss always make me smile. They seem so sweet and genuine. Kevin has the sweetest smile of them all! I always go all fan-girly when he smiles(even if I am a few years older).

    I absolutely loved that Mordney made an appearance on the set! Hilarious!!!

  211. If I retweet the post, do my tweets have to be on public? :O

  212. I love U-Kiss because they work so hard to make their local AND international fans happy! Always doing their absolute best even with those insane schedules (i agree with you guys! They need a vacation!) When they are working, lets say guesting on a variety show, it doesnt seem like work because they are having fun with it and letting loose. They dont always have that ‘i am an idol’ mindset so fans can see their personality, their quirks and such ^^ U-KISS FIGHTING!! <3

  213. What I love about U-KISS is the hard work that they do and the fact that they have grown so much!!! I became a huge KissMe when Tick Tack and Forbidden Love came out and have been truly obsessed with these amazing and talented boys. I have listened to and love all of there songs and seen the progress that they have gone through and it breaks my heart to know that they have not won first place yet, but I know that they will some day and when that day comes I will cry with joy for them! <3 U-KISS is full of lovable dorks and they are my inspiration to never give up and to keep on fighting, no matter how hard things may get in life. I can go on and on about how much I love and admire all of U-KISS but I will stop for now. :D My heart will always be with you and I hope you all stay healthy and well. U-KISS FIGHTING FOREVER AND EVER!!!!! <3

    my youtube name is scentedtoes.what do i love the most about U-Kiss? thats hard for me. i love everything about them! i love their music, dance, personality, everything! im young and i look up to them.i try must best in school like AJ and study hard. i also love how they adore their fans. unlike some kpop groups, i feel like im loved so much by them that im part of their family. lol ill be the sister they never wanted( creepy face inserted here).i love the fact that they get passed everything thats thrown at them. if they get passed the scandals, i can get passed being bullied. not only is kpop my escape from being bullied or any troubles i have, it gives me confidence and allows me not to care what others think of me. even if
    Kibum and Xander left the group, i still love them! and i support them like they were still in the group.i even support hoon and aj like they were part of the group since the beginning! also yes they are cute, but i feel like im not in love with them becase of there looks. with u-kiss their dancing and music makes me more in love with them then their looks. if it was not for u-kiss or kpop in general i would not be who i am today! U-Kiss FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!!!!! i love you guys and keep on being unique!!!!!!

  215. my username is lizzietheterrible ( I was going for an Ivan the terrible type thing, it didn’t go as planned) Well, I’ve only been a fan for a year, and I know there are people out there who like U-Kiss a whole lot more than I do, but hey, might as well tell someone who understands kpop why I like them. I think that the thing I like most about U-Kiss is the emotional songs that they create. Their vocals and the music help to emphasise the point they’re making. Earlier this school year (we started August 1st where I am) I failed a pretty important AP test, and I was devestated, and when I got home, I put my ipod on shuffle and the third song to come up was “baby don’t cry” by U-kiss. Sadly though, I did cry, but it was releaving, letting all the bottled up emotions out. I like U-Kiss because they make me emotional, they got me through it, and it may not have been that important in some people’s eyes, but it was for me. Thanks for reading my “life story” being a senior is a bit tough, but music gets me through, U-kiss fighting!
    oh, p.s.: Ms. Martina, I really love your hair, I like how it’s longer now. Keep the pink in for a long while, it suits you really well!

    What I like about Ukiss – I have like 8192739284 reasons to like Ukiss. I like Ukiss since 0330 and find their music are much different then others. They are overflowed with talents and I don’t know in which category I should place them in. They are the best at dancing, and they are the best at singing too. I’m learning about Ukiss’s past. They have been through so many hardship yet the haven’t win any music award. But that is not the point because they are already no.1 in Kissme’s heart. I haven’t meet Ukiss yet but my friend do, she said that Ukiss are way too friendly ((which make my heart burning because I can’t attend the fan meeting ;_;)) They are friendly, which make fans feel closer to them. Ukiss always work hard especially in Neverland. The dance steps are too hard and the choreographer almost want to change it to easier steps but Ukiss stop him and continue on the hard dance. I like how friendly Kevin was to you guys. I see how he always start conversations and thats really sweet ^_^ They keep entertaining us in any situations. I am proud to be a Kissme and will always support them. I always want a signed album from them so thanks to Eat Your Kimchi for this opportunity ^^ (youtube : mizjeliterz)

    I cannot love them enough. Ever since I got into Kpop, they were one of my favorite groups and I can safely say that never changed and never will change. I love U-kiss for their…
    1) Hard work. Even though I can’t see exactly what it is they do everyday to have a good image in front of their fans, I can tell I am under estimating how intensely they work for everyone around them. I probably couldn’t imagine how difficult it must be and yet I doubt they bother anyone with their complaints. They really are a perfect example of hard workers. And can I say, how can they not get discouraged by not winning one award in their whole U-Kiss lifetime? I’m sure it’s really disappointing to not get an award, letting you know you pored your heart into something and have that effort not pay off. I see groups cry getting an award because they have worked hard and now it finally showed. Getting an award is almost the whole purpose of being an artist. It shows that people recognize you’re successful and dedicated to what you love to do. Well all I can say is, if this song doesn’t win, Imma flip some tables into peoples’ faces! They deserve it more than anything in the world not just because they haven’t won before, but because IT IS LITERALLY ONE OF THE BEST SONGS I HAVE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE! They have been active for so much longer than a lot of groups that are getting awards and it makes me sad to know people don’t appreciate how extraordinary they are. I am not saying the newer artists don’t deserve it. (I actually love a lot of rookies and younger groups than U-Kiss.) But I’m not just some blind biased person because I do have an opinion about U-Kiss. But I know that they at least should have gotten one award for 0330 and Neverland. Those songs are on my list of favorite songs in the history of all songs ever so if this song doesn’t win, you’ll see some mass murders on the news. o_o
    2) Personalities. I know it may seem like a lot of Kpop groups are silly and fun and I’m not denying that. In fact I have other groups that are tied with U-kiss for my favorite group for exactly that reason. But I feel that U-kiss gives off a different feeling when I see them in interviews or variety shows. They can be total dorks and ignore their idol image with no shame and that’s what makes them feel like they are so approachable. They give off a friendly vibe that makes you feel like you would be able to joke around with them but also they can be really genuine people. They have an aura of humbleness that I would never be able to explain. Obviously they should be able to boast every which way about how talented they are in every possible area that you could possibly be talented in, but I’ve never seen pride get to their head. They can be such sincere people and yet they go through so much. I really admire them for that.
    3) And last but not least, their love for everyone. They give so much love to everyone around them. They love each other, they love their fans, they love loving. It’s great to see how close they are with each other despite having such a tough lifestyle of fame. I know I would probably have the urge to slap everyone in the face if I had to do what they do constantly everyday for eternal life. They really love their fans. I mean, hello!! Have you seen another group dedicate an album to their fans? That means they really do appreciate all KissMe’s around the world and acknowledge that they are there and that they can feel the international KissMes’ love and support. They made an album to thank their fans. That’s really touching. ;_; If anything we should be thanking them so much more for giving us some awesome music to listen to and for just existing. Thanks U-Kiss. :P
    OK. (Sorry this is so damn long but I still has my cheesy appreciation closing for you. DEAL WITH IT! Ehem…) I can’t stress enough how proud they make me feel to be their fan; to be a KissMe. I feel proud when other people recognize what skills U-Kiss has got. I have never been so happily involved with a group of people I don’t even know in my entire life. I can probably say I like them more than my friends. 0_o (I know I’m kinda messed up, huh?) But that is not a lie to convince you to give me a CD. HAHA I can truly say I wish I was their friend. They do so much for everyone and I want them to know it really payed off; that they have people who recognize what they have accomplished; that they have support from all over the world, KissMes having their back. I love them. I know love is a really strong word but I can’t find anything stronger to explain how I feel. haha (You were expecting me to say that love was too strong of a word, huh? LOL Nope. Love isn’t strong enough to explain my feels toward them. haha) The last thing I’ll say is they are great. Keep being awesomely perfect, U-Kiss. ^^
    Love ~ Juliet – some lame KissMe that may have obsession problems over these 9 boys. (Yes all the members, current and old.)

    @Holyangelheart1996 I guess an introduction?

    Well honestly, I haven’t been a KissMe for that long which hurts my pride…a lot, but I can truthfully say that they are my favorite. I only started listening to them a little before Doradora (I think) so I SERIOUSLY haven’t been a member for that long. I really love music, especially ones with good vocals, but U-Kiss is absolutely amazing! They don’t have good vocals, they have mind-blowing ones. When I started listening to them, I had no idea what group it was. >..> they’re awesome.

    What do I love about U-Kiss?
    Each of them have lovable personalities and someone that you can instantly consider as your bias. At first, I fell for Dongho in Neverland because he looked adorable >////< and then after watching a few more videos, I fell for Kiseop. Sadly at the time, I actually didn't like Kevin…sorry I was a mean fan at the time, but I still respected him for his vocals. But now I love and every member. (I secretly have a top three: Kiseop, Kevin, and Dongho..sorry Dongho, but Kevin took your spot <.<) Not to mention the fact that all of the members could easily debut on their own ('cuz they're beast like that), but together, they make the best music around. I really love upbeat songs because I like to try and stay positive when things are rough, and their songs are always there to cheer me up. By listening to their songs, you can feel their emotions and feel a weight lift from your shoulders (if that doesn't sound weird….I hope…well kinda). Although I love upbeat songs that make me want to dance, I can't help but to smile like and idiot and sing at the top of my lungs to their slow songs. I just love how their slow songs have such deep meanings to them. I love the Neverland album I bought recently because of their slow songs like "Take Me Away". After searching videos, I moved on to the stage of watching the game shows and interviews and felt my heart break when I found out that they're not that known. Like come on! Who cares about the companies?! They need to be listened to! And that they're known in Japan. (I'm an otaku and even Taking my third year of Japanese in High School, also my first year in Korean) The fact that they are so dedicated to their international fans shocked me, Japan absolutely goes nuts over them! (I wanna go nuts too… ; w ;), but I can't go to concerts since I live in Hawaii and I don't have enough money for a plane ticket to LA for those US concerts. I know it's a sad life. But what's even more sad is that they don't get any recognition until recently. A lot of them times, KissMes are forgotten so a couple of days ago I joined in the battle between VIPs and KissMes to win KMM for these awesome boys w > Well, I am very sorry for rambling, but even if I don’t win that precious album, I just wanted to explain how much we care for them. Who knows, they might just end up reading this one day.

  219. I loved the interview!!! It made me smile from the very beginning :D GOOD JOB!
    Side note:
    Hey Simon! I know it’s a little bit off topic, but that question to Eli and Kevin made me think of it: as we could see in one of your videos, when you’re at home (I mean, your parents’ home) you speak Polish, right? Do you sometimes think in Polish too?

  220. I love how down-to-earth this group is. I definitely have respect for them as hard-working artists but I’m amazed at their patience and friendliness in the middle of their busy schedules. I’m sure if the rest of U-Kiss was fluent in English, they would be talking non-stop to you guys. Thanks for sharing the bts experience and the giveaway.

    I would have to say what I like most about U-Kiss is they are so grateful for their fans and are so friendly and nice to them. Also I’m always impressed with their music and choreography and the work they put into it.

  222. Kokololio

    What I love about U-kiss is how hard they work, no matter what! They have done so much just in this year and because if that their fans give them so much support. It’s crazy to think that they haven’t won first place yet but I can’t wait for when they do because it will be amazing and I might cry! They’ve gone through a lot and continue to come out stronger, Kiss-mes too and that makes me so proud!

  223. Guys you used my question but didn’t mention my name or country…. Why? T-T

  224. * lol * Tea . . .it’s not pronounced as the drink XD but like:

    T – as in Tell
    E – as in Elephant
    A – as in Apple

    But yeah, same spelling . . .I understand why you didn’t know how to pronounce it …
    The name is a variation of Thea or Dorothea / Dorothy (among others I guess, not sure which one since I am not her XD ) …there are some tricky names out there for people with English as their first language to pronounce .

    Anyways, I liked the interview ^-^
    Thank you Simon and Martina for your efforts ^-^

  225. what I love most about U-Kiss ist their personalities. all of them seem to be so nice and so down to earth! it never feels like they are really celebrities, since they are in no way stuck up or arrogant, they’re simply a group of very talented and hard working guys. it is obvious that they put a lot of effort into everything they’re doing. if you watch their variety shows like chef’s kiss or vampire you will also get the feeling that they all get along well. U-Kiss feels like a group with close bonds to me.
    I admire them a lot because they work so hard for their success and because all of them are so friendly and likeable! out of all k-pop groups, U-Kiss is probably the one that is most suitable to serve as a role model. ^^

    what i like the most about U-Kiss, well not only i like but i love how they’re always working so hard and they don’t have any vacation at all like Simon and Martina mentioned. They are hard workers and never give up and never complain about their work, and always support each other like they mentioned on the interview and that’s what i like the most about them. U-Kiss Hwaiting!!!!!!

    What I love about U-Kiss. There is so much to say. They were one of the first groups I found and fell in love with. And not just their amazing dance and singing and comp skills. Everywhere they go, they bring determination, smiles, and laughs. Considering what each of them has gone through, it’s amazing that they have been able to stay so strong, positive and succeeded as much as they have. And support each other! And still care about their fans as much as they do. I wish them all the best and hope more can see how amazing they are. And I know, if I ever got to meet them in person, I’d probably end up crying (as lame as that sounds). The only cure would probably be Kevin’s octopus dance. XP But I hope they stay healthy and achieve their dreams. 유키스, 회이팅! 사랑해요! 너무 감사합니다. 수고하세요!

    Ah, I really don’t know what to say.

    I feel like so many emotions are running through me, and I know, I sound like a sap, but, really, above all else, I just…

    I just love you guys.

    I really admire the two of you for doing what you want, for pushing for your dreams and having guts enough to continue even when the criticism gets so harsh. I admire you for persevering in times of trouble, when you’ve thought you couldn’t continue, and watching your fans take the burden off your shoulders to help get you there. I love that you guys take time out to do things like this, to interview bands and get to the heart of who they are as people, not just as celebrities. I feel like you guys are our voice to the Korean community, the only link we have to the secret world we’ll never see, even if we visit it.

    That said, I’m really extremely grateful to you both for conducting this interview. I almost love it more than the interview you guys did with MBLAQ – which was really the first video I saw of yours – but I love it just as much. As a new KissMe, this just reinforces my belief and trust in U-KISS. They are such down-to-earth, fun-loving, sweet, awesome guys. Most of the time when I watch interviews with bands, I always find it awkward when only one or two members speaks the most and the others are just kind of standing there, but here, it wasn’t awkward. U-KISS is like a big family, and gosh there are so many things I could mention but I really don’t want to ramble. I’ll just list a few here that encompass both the interview and BTS:

    ~1) Kevin. Kevin, Kevin, Kevin, Kevin. Omo, when he waved at you guys amidst U-KISS and on the set, I was just filled with fangirl glee. He is just too frickin’ adorable, and jeez, Simon and Martina, I think you guys have confirmed my bias. =. =
    ~2) The silent downtime moments between filming where the members are just kind of standing around – Kiseop, especially – were really illuminating, at least to me. I think there’s a sort of veil between idols and their fandoms, but I feel that with U-KISS that veil is very thin and almost non-existent. These rare moments of standing around, dancing silly or swinging their legs around – it’s very easy to remember they are still human, just like us. I’m grateful to have seen these moments.

    ~3) I want to extend my appreciation and admiration to U-KISS for working so hard and taking the time to do the interview with you guys, as well as for inviting you on set. I know artists have a tough time filming and barely get enough rest at all, but I’m happy U-KISS was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed enough to tend to you. :P

    ~4) Hoon “acting innocent” while the members ruthlessly pointed out his awkward finger-raising habit. WINWINWIN. xD

    ~5) Kevin “watching” AJ. Oh, and Eli and Kevin alone in a room together. YOU GUISE – if you hadn’t pointed it out, I wouldn’t have… Oh, the fangirl mind. <3

    ~6) I'm not sure where this moment lies specifically in the interview, but it was as Eli was answering your question about rituals on set – Soohyun gently reached out to touch Eli's shoulder. I thought it was a really sweet connective gesture, especially as leader.

    ~7) Another heartwarming moment: Kevin admitting he loves being with U-KISS. Oh, so ADORABLE. Adorable bias warms my heart… Which brings me to another Kevin moment (man, he's taking over!) – his comment at dancing with the back-up dancer: "Ooh, scandalous." XDDDDD

    On a more serious note: "I really hate it when people say, “oh kpop is so easy and has no talent, anyone can do it.”" – Thank you. Thank you for saying this. Reading so many comments about how U-KISS' video is so simple and boring, I felt severely hurt for U-KISS. Watching your BTS shows that the "simple" videos are just the opposite. They take time and effort by hundreds of people, so we should be grateful for every second of footage we get because it doesn't just happen (sadly, I feel like a guilty ELF now for hating on Super Junior…). This also applies to the pair of you for EYK – you don't just wake up in the morning and decide to film (I'm reminded of B.A.P's "Shower" song, Simon! XD) and get it over with in 20, even 30 minutes. It takes hours to film and hours more to edit. Thank you both so much for doing this, I just really want you to know we appreciate it. :)

    As a final question, does anyone else think Kevin secretly filmed his scenes early on purpose so that he could be fresh and energetic to meet Simon and Martina on set? Hm? Hm? Guise, srsly. Just adopt Kevin already. It's not like U-KISS couldn't visit him. Just keep him at the studio, that way you can have extra special U-KISS interviews all the time. JK! XDDD

    Anywho, off to Google+ the contest thread! I really want a chance at one of those albums.. Thanks to U-KISS for handing them off to you, and of course the two of you for being amazing people and offering them to us Nasties! OOOH SO GRATEFULLY NASTY! Nastily grateful? Hm…

    MORDNEY WAS PRESENT ! YESS BWAHAHAHA (I can't believe you guise filmed in Soohyun's chair. EPIC.) XDDDD

    Now, about that KMM surprise….. ;}

    <3 always,

    ~Lily

  229. U-kiss isn’t just another kpop group to me now as they were in the beginning. I remember from the first time I watched Bingeul Bingeul, I instantly fell in love with these guys. Following their journey since then, and officially being a self proclaimed Kiss-Me up until now, allowed me to understand, enjoy, and emphasize with the journeys and trials they’ve faced. I love their personalities, their attitudes, and the fact that they love everything they do. I love how they always persevere to make better and better music. I love how earnest and humble they seem. Finally, I love the love, and appreciation they have for their fans. I don’t see them just as idols who live in an almost far away dimension anymore, I see them as actual human beings whom I would love to actually meet.
    Forever a Kiss-Me, since 2010. ^_^

  230. “Is this your closet?” was completely my first thought…almost died laughing…

  231. I love that U-Kiss is always able to make me smile. They don’t even have to be doing anything, I can hear the beginning of any of their songs and I get the biggest, stupidest smile on my face, and I love them for that. I love how hardworking they are, even though I think that they really need to take a break and recharge a little. I love how respectful they are to other idol groups, even to the rookies, and I think a lot of idol groups like them as well *coughinfiniteandnu’estcough*. I love how they have such a close relationship with each other, and how they are never afraid to be themselves. I love how much they seem to love their fans; they always seem so happy to see them and always make sure to at least acknowledge them in some way. I also love how humble they are, they don’t seem arrogant or egotistical about anything, even though they are pretty popular(at least overseas). I also love the fact that they are so easy to relate to; they are one of the only kpop groups that I think I could be friends with, simply because they seem like such funny, happy, nice people. So I guess in a nutshell, I love everything about U-Kiss.

  232. I love that U-KISS continues to stay dedicated to their work and their fans, despite not winning any awards or getting massive public recognition. They never whine or complain about the fact that their juniors have been surpassing them, rather they continue to work hard and make music that they love. They’re real musicians and real role models in today’s idol scene for their commitment, passion, and genuinely pure hearts.

  233. I love that Ukiss are always so positive and keep trying even though all the struggles. They work so hard. I honestly couldn’t believe they were having a comeback again since it seemed not that long ago that they were doing doradora. Anyway I wish Ukiss all the best of luck and to keep smiling. They have wonderful smiles and I don’t want to see them extinguished from the harshness of the industry. (my yt is mandasai12)

    What I love about U-KISS
    They are hard working boys who love their fans. Though I do think that they need a rest, they always come on stage with a smile :) and with their smile it gives us fans more energy to cheer them on even more! Everyday on the bus after school, I talk to my friends, non-kpop lovers, about them and now they too like U-KISS. Even though it bugs me when they tell me things about our boys when I’m the one that tells them everything….. ok I digress. Anyway nobody here understands my love for them and because they don’t, I try my best to get at least something from them. I’m not lucky or have money to buy their songs or album online but I have…..uh…what’s it called…. man, I was on a roll too…. ah! Youtube. My friend asked what I wanted for Christmas and I told her that I wanted a U-KISS poster, unfortunately, she said no. :’( But in the future I hope the boys continue to work hard and be happy and to keep doing what they love, dunno if that makes sense, but no matter what KissMe’s will always love you! (^_^)

    Why I love U-KISS? Wow, okay, just be prepared that this could get a bit long……but remember, you asked for it.
    For starters, I love them because they can bring a smile to my face and make my heart feel lighter when nobody else can, even from the very first time I heard them. It started when a friend whom I considered my sister decided she was done with me. Totally and completely done with me, didnt want to ever talk to me again, and definitely never see me again. I was devastated, and slipped into a state of numbness where I was completely unresponsive to people, only coming out of it to sob my eyes out before going back to being numb. One day when trying to ignore the world by submerging myself into youtube videos, the video for ‘Tick Tack’ showed up under recommended videos. I had a friend who loved U-KISS, so I recognized the name and decided “Eh, why not?” and I was just blown away.
    That was my introduction to U-KISS and the world of Kpop and Jpop in general. I needed to learn more, and through listening to music, watching their videos, and finding out all that I could about them, I fell in love with them and started to come back to life. Im back to being a vibrant and joyful individual now, and have actually become even more outgoing than I was to begin with.
    I love them for how hard they work, putting aside discomfort to make sure they do their absolute best for their fans.
    I love how their voices and the sound of their music has the ability to soothe my frayed nerves when I’ve had a rough day.
    The fact that theyre all great looking definitely doesnt hurt, but that doesnt have anything to do with why I love them so much. I love their personalities. I realize that you cant believe everything you see on tv, because some things are scripted to make it more interesting, but they often seem so sincere and gentle and caring, and I love them for that.
    Finally, I love them for never calling it quits and giving up. They have faced many difficult things over the years, and although they still havent taken first after four years, they just keep truckin along, unwilling to throw in the towel. I not only love them for that, I admire them. I look up to them and wish I could be like them. They know what they want, they have set their eyes on it, and they refuse to give up no matter how many times they get pushed back or have obstacles placed in their way. Thats why I love them, and always will love them. Even if over time different musicians come up in my life and become my new ‘favorite’, my love for U-KISS isnt going to fade, because it’s not some surface-deep love. Theyve taught me to harden my resolve and keep pushing, and they taught me to smile again, and for that I will always love them and be thankful to them. Hopefully one day I can have the chance to actually tell them that.
    Thank you U-KISS. I love you.
    U-KISS FIGHTING!!!!

  236. i love everythingg about them! xD they’re funny and just too adoorableee! i just really want them to get #1 once already! its been years since they’ve debuted and yet they havent had the chance to win! D: i’d totally cry with tears of joy if they win! ♥

  237. I love U-Kiss for the same reason S&M mentioned. They are one of the absolute nicest K-pop groups I’ve never had the chance to meet. There is a lot of different music and songs that I like, but U-Kiss has stolen my heart with how down-to-earth and NICE they are. I see them being friendly with and supporting other bands, both popular and rookie alike, and from all accounts they are that way with everyone. They also put in a ton of effort to be able to communicate with all their fans. It warms my heart every time I see Soohyun attempt to tweet in English, even if it’s not always correct. It’s amazing to know that my time and support is going towards such wonderful people and good role models.

    Hi Simon! Hi Martina! You guys probably have a lot of comments to read through huh? hehe~ But if you are, I’ll try my best to make this comment interesting enough to read! Hehe~

    I’ve been a fan of Kpop since December 2010 I think and to
    tell the truth, I didn’t know much about U-Kiss. I was a huge fan of SHINee and Infinite when I first listened to KPOP since they were the first groups that I knew. I liked their music and they were such dorks on variety shows. But, as I grew more
    into Kpop and started watching the idol-variety shows with other idols in it, I also came to love U-Kiss. It started with watching Oh! My School and I noticed how cute Dongho was, even though he’s older than me >–< Kekeke~ U-Kiss seems so alive on variety shows and they always seem to have a great time with each other. I especially loved them in
    Chef’s Kiss! Their teamwork with each other was so well. I miss Alexander and Kibum TTuTT But its alright J They will always be a part of U-Kiss <3 So…. Where was i? Oh well. Hehe~ Let’s talk about why I love U-Kiss, well I think I’ve been saying quite a lot why I do. H e h e~ I love how determined and patient they are. The fact that they have been together for 4 loooong years makes me feel so happy about them. Their bond and friendship together must be really big. I love U-Kiss to death, you just can’t deny my r2 π. ;) hehe~ I love how even though they haven’t won any music shows, they still stay strong Not like it matters though
    because they have a bunch of amazing fans all around the world. J But it would be so amazing if they won!!! Omaibuddah if they won I’ll probably cry and throw a little party all by myself hehe~ U-Kiss fighting!!! Stay strong and please continue to do music forever!!! Keep your determination and love for music 100%. You’ll have your fans to support you all the way! “I Do Believe in You~” hehe~ Go UKISS!!!!!

    At first, I listened to U-Kiss just for their music (because really,
    Neverland was a masterpiece). But after seeing how hard they’ve worked
    for FOUR YEARS, I started to appreciate their perseverance. I remember
    being shocked after finding out that they’ve never won a music award,
    ever, even with all the awesome comebacks they’ve had. The members are
    friendly, outgoing, and stay true to their fans (unlike other groups
    that you feel like put a small barrier in front of their fans). Despite
    all their losses (member changes, lack of popularity), U-Kiss has
    managed to keep working hard (without ever having a break). As a young
    musician, they inspire me with how hard they work to someday…someday
    win an award and be the huge stars they were meant to be. I love U-Kiss
    solely for their music, hard work, and for everything they do for us
    Kissmes

  240. UKISS album signed. now way…ahhh *_* Fainted– Ok… hmmm..what I like most. Well I recently became a fan of UKISS ( like in last year or so). At first I was ehh the dance moves are cool and they all are good looking but hey that is everyone in KPOP. The reason they caught my attention was because they all seemed really genuine and determined to do their best at all times.I got that vibe when they were randomly interviewed by you guys a while back. They just jumped in and were really open and sweet ( rather than the expected waves or nod acknowledgement). I know they have been crazy busy as of late with all the MVs and tour related items coming out on YouTube and such to make the fans happy ( all the fans all over the world not just in Asia– yes I am in the US). They also seem to watch covers from fans and read comments that fandom leave on pages ( which blew my mind considering how busy they are– so sincere !!!) The more I watch them as people and as performers the greater a fan I become. UKISS Fighting! UKISS- you’re doing and awesome job not only as performers but as role models and friends to fans as well as each other.

  241. Me hizo muy feliz ver este vídeo *.* los chicos de U-KISS son muy dulces y amables ^_^
    It makes me so happy to this video *.* The boys of U-KISS is so sweet and nice ^_^

  242. thegypsytwins

    I honestly have not been a fan since the beginning like a lot of people here, but every time I see them they become more charming to me. With every song they release my respect for them grows, and I love that about them. I love that unlike a lot of Kpop idols, these guys aren’t letting the fame get to them. They still seem very real, like just a group of guys having fun. They seem like normal dudes who just do what they do because they love and appreciate their fans…like me. ^o^ International Kiss Me represent!!!

  243. The thing I love about U-KISS the most is their undying love and passion for what they do. They do work SOOO hard for everything and put their all in it. Us fans can see. And they really deserve more than just 6 awards. And they’re still going strong after 4 years, even after all the things they’ve gone through; with Xander and Kibum leaving, and now AJ leaving temporarily for school (hope he’s doing good with his studies). They’ve really gone through a lot. And I really love how they can still be so happy, and cheerful all the time despite everything that’s happened. But with that you can see their TRUE passion for being K-Pop singers. And that really motivates me to never give up. I hope they stay together for a REALLY long time. <3
    U-KISS FIGHTING! :D

  244. I have already left a comment on YouTube, but I will try to express myself better through a comment here. I do not attempt to spam.

    What I like
    most about U-KISS is that they are really hardworking and always caring for
    their fans. I know many groups thank their fans, but no one does it like U-KISS
    does. In every album they always got at least one song that is dedicated to
    their fans, and keep thanking us in their songs and interviews. Even know
    U-KISS still haven’t won a music program, they don’t give up, but instead works
    even harder, and won’t rest until it’s perfect. Their biggest dream is to win,
    but even if they don’t win, they know that we KissMes will always love them,
    and that they always will be number one for us.

    They have
    also been through a lot, after the member shift a lot changed, but they never
    gave up. In the end they believed in each other and KissMes. They have become a
    lot stronger and they never disappoint us.

    I love that
    U-KISS are very down to earth, they don’t try to be perfect, and they are only
    being themselves. At this point fans
    would probably say that they are perfect, but the truth is that they are not. I
    love them because they are not perfect, because no one is perfect, and U-KISS
    has some flaws, but that is what makes them human. They refuse to use insoles,
    and choose to show their real height and height differences instead. They don’t
    try to show off like a perfect boy group; instead they show off like themselves.
    They show us their dorky sides and are not ashamed of it.

    They have
    really worked hard, and deserve all the love they get.
    They take care of each
    other and whenever someone is missing, they take it to their hearts and work
    even hared. They always say that U-KISS cannot be less than seven people, and
    that it’s something wrong whenever one is missing.

    They really
    deserve to be titled Hallyu stars, they are really inspiring and I can say
    without any doubt that U-KISS are and will always be my number one favorite
    group out of all time. My love to them is infinite, and I could probably write
    a book about why they are so lovable.

    I will always support U-KISS no matter what!

    what i love about u-kiss? the laugh, the smile, the tears, the dream, the hope.. the laugh when they play and goof around, the smile that never fade even when they are sick or tired, the tears when the two members kicked out, the dream of winning no.1 that bring tears to them cause they haven’t win, the hope to bring more and more music and dance to bring them the trophies they really deserved..

    forever a kiss me,U-KISS fighting!!!!

    *and u guys too, S&M^^.. and Mordney*

  246. First of all, let me tell you guys… your questions are always so hard to answer. There are so many things I love about U-Kiss, and some of them I can’t put into words. I will try, though.

    I love how they’re always so positive. They work so hard and it breaks my heart when they don’t get the recognition they deserve. My only wish is to see them become popular and finally win on a music show. I just know they’d cry, and I’d cry along with them, halfway across the world.

    My k-pop loving friends don’t even know them very well. I can’t tell you how sad I was when I showed them Stop Girl and they asked, “Who are they?”

    I love how they genuinely care about us, the crazy fangirls, the Kiss Mes. They ask us for support, and we want to give it so badly to them. Only it’s a lot more difficult when you’re and International Kiss Me, when you’re not Korean and living in a different country.

    I don’t love them because of their image, or their looks (though that may be part of it…), or even their singing/ rapping abilities. I love their personalities and how they aren’t afraid to be silly.

    I love how they’re so down to earth. They’d just be like normal people if they weren’t an idol group.

    A lot of people don’t understand how someone can like a band or group with all their hearts. It’s not something you can just explain, either. You care so much about them, want them to be happy, to succeed…for no real reason other than the fact that you love them.

    And anyways, how are you supposed to explain why you love someone? You just do. That’s the way I feel about U-Kiss.

    Though I may simply like other groups and listen to their songs, I will never truly love them. Not in the way I love U-Kiss.

    Yeah, call me a fangirl, an insane one at that, but the fact is, I love them. I do.

    I’m not usually this mushy, but if the circumstances call for it, I will be. I didn’t even write this for the CD. It’d be nice to have it, with all the signatures and everything. In fact, I’d probably pass out if I won.

    BUT (and this is a big but), I’d like to one day meet them and get their autographs first hand. To be able to see them, watch them be themselves… I think I would treasure that memory for the rest of my life.

    U-KISS, you probably won’t read this, but let me just say, 사라해.

    Haha, sorry, Simon and Martina, but you should know by now that a fangirl’s heart is a complicated one. If you read all the way through, Thank you~

    I will always support them. Forever.

    i love u-kiss since their debut. i’m not joking. ok i know i’m just a fan like another but i really like their songs. i actually look more at the faces of the idols in their music videos but with u-kiss it’s different. not that i’m saying they’re not handsome! NOO not at all they’re very nice! in their mv and live concerts, i just enjoy their performance (dance and song) . U-kiss, you guys seriously need a rest. I understand (and i’m sure all the kissmes understand) that you work really hard to provide us good music as often as poddible, but we prefer you guys take a rest… you guys have to stay healthy!! we don’t want you to be too tired… take some rest and comeback again! We will love as much as before! Hwaiting u-kiss WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH! WE WILL SUPPORT YOU FOREVER!

  250. The thing that i like most about UKISS that they are very natural and friendly. Not like some stars who are fake. uKiss<3

  251. i think what i love about u-kiss other then the fact they
    are my first k-pop group i loved , is they seem genuinely sweet and i
    like that.

  252. Back in 2006, a 4-member group debuted as XING. I loved this group’s songs and wished they had more before a member change. Kevin remained for several lineup changes. But when Kevin finally departed, I was heartbroken. A few years later, my sister told me there was a Kevin in this other group; it turned out to be U-Kiss. I was ecstatic: Kevin AND Kibum were both there.

    And over the years, I grew more and more fond of U-Kiss for their quirky personalities, their closeness to other members, their dedication and love to their fans, and most of all, their perseverance in the music industry. To date, in their fours years since debut, they’ve never won a single major music show. But to them, that doesn’t matter. What matters to them is that they love their job, they love to sing, entertain, live out their dreams–they haven’t given up. Most, if not all, of the members have come a long way from their starting roots and the journey isn’t over yet.

    Personally, I listen to “Someday,” from their Neverland album, whenever I feel stressed, when I face hardship, when I don’t feel like going on with life anymore. The context of the song isn’t exactly this, but their soothing voices in ballad-like songs really help calm. U-Kiss gives me hope.

    I congratulate them for making it this far. I will continue to support U-Kiss and ALL of its members, including past members Kibum and Alexander.

    Thank you U-Kiss, for sticking together.
    And thank you, Simon and Martina, for the work you do in Korea and for bridging a gap between U-Kiss and their international fans.

  253. Why I love U-Kiss?
    They are a group that since their debut has been growing remarkably, i love and admire how they work so hard to give us the fans the best of them and that they never give up, even if they don’t get the recognition that they deserve they always give their best.I love that they are a united team no matter what, when i see U-kiss i feel that they are a real family that they have a bond that cant break easily and because of that
    they create such a beautiful harmony its like their voices complete each other´s, and unlike some other groups their rap is amazing, specially AJ´s ( TT.TT I miss him so much), I love their dance, how they pull of complicated choreographies and make them look easy to dance (but their not, i have tried) their dance is so powerful and coordinated, And i believe that they are truly a international group, they speak many languages. More importantly they really love their fans and they show it in many ways, for example the song ¨Te amo¨, since I am latinamerican, it is the best song ever because i can hear them speak spanish, even if its only some words. And to finish, I love their personalities, they are sooooo freaking funny and cute, and i love sweet and sincere hearts; and last but not least , they are soooooo handsome and charismatic that make all the fans, me, fall in love with them.

    What I love the most about U-Kiss is their goofiness and their dedication to us fans. There is never a moment where U-Kiss isn’t joking around or having a good time. They are just so down to earth and funny. You can tell that they really enjoy being together and doing what they do. I always find myself laughing along and smiling with them. Their silly personalities shine through in everything that they do. Personally, I think they have more fun with what they do than any other idol group. Along with that, they also put in so much hard work and effort for their fans. They dedicate everything to us and their goal is to make us happy, even if it does not win them any awards. They thank the fans, when they are the ones who should be being thanked for everything they have done for us. These boys work SO hard!! They really need a break, but they don’t take one because they are working for their fans. They are truly great idols!! I can feel the love that the members share for each other and the love that the members share for their fans. U-KISS FIGHTING! ♥

    U-Kiss is really underrated, I wish that they had more recognition as a group but they will surely get there soon with this song! I am so happy with this song, it has been like an obsession for me since it came out. Sometimes, I feel like I should stop listening to the song before I overplay it, but whatever (note cheesy song title ref XD)
    U-Kiss has exceeded my expectations once again. I mean, Kiseop has so many lines in this song and his dancing in the beginning was bloody brilliant *cries a new ocean*. Dongho and Eli’s rapping never seems to stop making me smile, same with Hoon’s singing~ When Kevin sings the hook, it makes me fangirl a bit too much ;D
    LMFAO. During the interview, I knew that the members were going to choose Soohyun as the one that could be in a horror movie. If you watched U-Kiss’ Chef Kiss, they had this one episode were they had to go into some haunted house to find the next main ingredient; SO FUNNY. Soohyun and Eli were laughing and thanking the ghosts instead of being scared. I hope I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t surprised when he got chosen during the interview XD Always cracks me up (‘: Also, Dongho dancing to Not Young, it just reminds me how much they have grown up since their debut. Does anyone else remember Dongho’s cornrows? Their Lakers jerseys? or the Kibum/Kevin heart? :’D … now I’m just reminiscing the past ;___; Anyways, still proud of them for growing up beautifully! THANKYOU to whoever let EYK interview them and to EYK for doing the interview!

    ps. I miss you three… Kibum, Alexander and AJ fighting~

  258. U-kiss will always be my favorite group because of all that
    they are. U-kiss is diverse, they stand out from the rest of the other kpop
    groups. They’re passion, talent, and perseverance is what I most compliment them
    for. First of all, no matter how much we Kiss Me’s and U-kiss themselves wish
    they had won the number one title, we cannot deny the fact that they haven’t.
    Their perseverance to strive through all difficulties and hardships for four
    consecutive years and more is astounding. They believe that as long as they can
    reach their dream and goal, no matter how far away, it is worth fighting for. U-kiss is able to endure sleepless nights and endless
    practices due to their will to succeed. Secondly, I love the fact that each
    member contributes something important to the group. Kevin, Hoon, and Soohyun’s
    voices are extraordinary and soulful. Eli, Dongho, and AJ’s rapping are expressive
    and unique. Kiseop’s dancing is simply really cool. What’s more, all U-kiss members
    have so many other talents to contribute and not only the ones that they
    specialize in. Last of all, their passion is simply commendable. Why else would
    they go through so much if it were not for their love of music? Kpop obviously
    falls under music, and kpop is composed of singing, dancing, rapping, and so
    much more. U-kiss has a passion for all of these. They’re strong interest and
    enthusiasm to create music is what brought all of them together to form U-kiss.
    I’m telling the truth when I say that U-kiss makes up a lot of my life. For
    instance, they brighten up my day whenever times get tough. Just listening to
    their music and watching their variety shows can create a tremendous impact on me.
    Words and everything I wrote here are not enough to express what I like most
    about U-kiss. U-kiss is U-kiss, and that is enough to make me love them.

  259. I’ve been in this Kpop game for only two years now. That’s not alot of time as we all know and is pretty late but now it’s become a part of my life, and UKiss is one reason for that. They weren’t my very first song that I heard but they are the reason that I am where I am today with all of the music. I first saw their video for Shut Up and fell absolutely in love with their group so that for the next few days all I did was look up their songs, performances, interviews cute little things and so forth and so on. It’s because you can see that desire in them as they work and dance and talk, that pure love of what they do and how hard they work, and no one can say that UKiss does NOT work hard because they would be lying to you, just to please the fans. How the fans are the centerfold for them wanting to work hard as people, as a band and ultimately as artists that left an impact on me. I have become completely hooked and it really is all thanks to UKiss. They have so much hold in my life, whenever I feel bad the first thing I do is go to the special little playlist on my iPod that I have just for them and just blare the music and it really does have the ability to brighten my day. They are the first things I listen to when I wake up in the mornings, when I drive to school and even before I sleep. I really care for this group, whenever they have new songs I listen and buy them like no ones business and if the topic ever comes up in conversation they are some of the first things I talk about. Really, all of my friends are sick of me by now. But I don’t care because this group is dear to me and to have even the possibility, the chance to have something straight from Korea of theirs that they have even signed? It’s almost like a dream. I would absolutely love to have this, it would mean so much to me. For even presenting this chance to us I want to thank you. For loving Ukiss and still being fair to their abilities I thank you. For continuing to make music for all the fans, to keep working, to put their all into everything they do for fans I want to thank Ukiss. We will never let you down, we are Kissmes. UKiss, Hwaiting!

    What I Love About U- Kiss , is that I am Just a recent fan of them but they are so AHHMAZING at what they do,and they are not underrated. These guys have soo much talent and i think as kpop idols to have such a high status they are really nice and caring.
    Their songs are catchy and despite negative comments on them.they keep pushing forward,FIGHTING!
    I ALSO LOVE KEVIN,ELI AND AJ!! the fact that Kevin & Eli are from America is ahhmazing,because even Americans can go and push their dreams are be successful in other countries and i admire AJ still going for an education despite his ahhmazingly awesome status of a kpop idol.
    All in all i am glad to have become a fan of U Kiss even though it was just like i became a fan of them for like 3 months now,and plus i love Dongho such a cutie

  262. Why I love U-Kiss..hmmm..ah one word: Sincere: Super nice, Interesting, Completely available to fans, Enormously handsome, Really talented, and Extremely adorable!

  263. Yeeeeeeeeeeeey a question from sweden! :D

  264. Are you allowed to enter all the contest pages (Twitter,Youtube,Here,Google) or just one?

  265. I really like ukiss even though I’m not kiss me since the start but I can see their hard work and well, it’s really inspire me to not give up :)

    youtube: poppimeshi

  266. My Youtube handle is edclipse. I like that the members are so down-to-earth. Kevin in particular seems like such a fun guy to be around. It feels like we can relate to them more since AJ, Kevin and Eli are fluent in English. The fact that AJ is currently going to Columbia University just supplements what I said before: these are just normal people that happen to be members of a kpop group. I used to wonder why everyone obsessed over Ukiss because they seemed like one of those generic groups whom everyone liked because of their looks. After listening to some of their songs like Dora Dora, Believe and now Stop Girl, I can now see the appeal of this group. They are charismatic individuals and they are constantly striving to improve their music. The fact that they invited you guys to the set of their new music video shows that they wanted to prove that they have improved. Sorry for the long answer…

    what i like most about ukiss.. Well Ukiss always has a special place in my heart; since eli and kevin are both asians born american like me, its like we have a special connection. Ukiss cares a lot about their fans, the international ones especially. Also the fact that ukiss are such underdogs sometimes and yet they’re always so positive and they never give up. The hardships each member went through to get to where they are now, they’re truly such an inspiration.

  268. I’m somewhat still new to Kpop, as well as U-KISS, since I didn’t get into the genre till roughly 4 months ago. Even though I’m still exploring Kpop groups, I can’t help but feel special bonds between the few groups that I find and anticipate to see more in the future.

    When I first heard about U-KISS, I expected another typical “boy group” but that was far from what I discovered. I watched small clips of each member first and quickly fell in love with how quirky they are. I questioned how anyone could ever have a bias in U-KISS. From a cute maknae such as Dongho, a confident but gentle leader as Soohyun, quiet and lovable Kiseop, “feminine-manly” man Kevin, oober sexy rapper Eli, funny jokester Kibum, lighthearted Alexander, the incredibly talented AJ, and mysteriously angelic vocalist Hoon. I adore all of them individually. While watching “Chef Kiss” and “U-KISS Vampire”, they showed a strong family-like bond with hardly any dull moments. I loved their teamwork and comforting with each other when enduring small missions. In “Pops in Seoul”, I adored Eli, Kevin, and Alexander’s fluent English and respect to fellow Kpop groups.

    When it comes to showing their passion in their music such as MVs, concerts, or live performances (such as Inkigayo), they are amazingly great at it! As a fan, I can feel that they try their very best just to make their performance as best as they can. I really am thankful for all of the work they do to learn the dance steps as well as perform them. Through all their nervousness, they are greatly loved for all of their hard efforts.

    With Kibum’s and Alexander’s departure, I felt crushed that their family-like atmosphere was interrupted. Through a rough time, they were probably really hurt. I’m really sad even till this day that they lost two talented singers/dancers but relieved that they were able to endure a bumpy part in their paths together. I’m thankful though that they have AJ and Hoon part of the big family to keep U-KISS going. However, I don’t look at U-KISS with just 7 members, but as a happy 9-member family. I support all of them individually and as a whole, as well as Kibum and Alexander. I hope the best for all of them!

    U-KISS debuted around the same time as 2PM and other groups so they were a bit over-looked. Being the underdogs is also an advantage though! Some people might underestimate U-KISS but once people start listening to their music, watching their stage performances, and so forth, they might question why they’ve been overlooked. I was greatly surprised at how much I’ve been missing out before while not knowing them. Their music is fun to dance to and with amazingly strong vocals throughout. They also inspire me to keep on working toward my dreams even if all the hard efforts are not appreciated. I’ll continue to support them to accomplish their dreams of whatever they may be!

    If I ever do get to meet them in the future, my wish is to thank them from the bottom of my heart for all their hard work, being such a big inspiration to follow my dreams, and hope they keep pushing forward with their promotions. To the members of U-KISS, please keep pursing and staying an inspiration for me and many others. U-KISS fighting~!^^

    I would also like to thank U-KISS, Martina, and Simon for giving everyone a behind the scenes look on U-KISS’s MV and the interview as well as this opportunity to win their album!

  269. funnyfishyinseoul here! (sadly no longer in seoul… gotta change that name u_u) I personally love U-Kiss’s relationship they have with their fans. Every time I’ve seen them in person they’ve been so friendly and down to earth, comfortably chatting and interacting with the fans. They strike me as a really humble group that appreciates every fan they have and I really think they deserve more recognition in Korea T_T I know they have a huge foreign fanbase though so I hope it makes them happy to know they’re loved around the world. UKISS FIGHTING! (ps. hoon’s habit is so adorable kjdf;akfa;f )

    What I like most about U- Kiss is that they’re SO hard working, they don’t get as much recognition as SHINee or Super Junior but they work SO much harder than them and they should be known more! I really love that they’re so REAL and they always try to communicate with International fans and Kevin s cute little – ‘Scandalous ~’ I can’t put into words how much I adore and look up to these men. I don’t have enough characters! I live in England so I can’t see them live but they always work so hard. These boys are so precious and I treasure them ! It would be nice to have U -Kiss merch of my own since I can’t get it here and my mother doesn’t like to buy things off of eBay, so if I did win this would be my first piece of U kiss Merchandise! They were the first kPop band I heard of and I’ve loved them since and I honestly wouldn’t be into kPop without them! I seriously love these boys so much! Not so much that I would stalk them – they need their privacy. I can’t really put it into words how much I adore these boys, Dongho is adorable and innocent and Eli is hilarious so is Kevin our little Diva~ I really look up to AJ, going to college to study instead of performing and living a dream he’s really diligent and hard-working – heck, they all are. Kiseop is quiet and doesn’t get many lines in the songs but that doesn’t take away how much I love him, his mysterious vibe is what I love most about him! Soohyun is amazing and always knows how the members are feeling even though he has his playful side as shown in the video~ Soohyun, how could you throw bugs at them xD ♥ Last but not least – definitely not least- Is Hoon who has an innocence about him as well, but he’s also playful and funny! :3 I really do love these boys and hope that they come to England one day and do a fan meet it would be a dream come true to meet them!

    Since the day I found U-KISS, many moons ago, I have been in love with them, as performers and people. Their music has found different ways to change my mood, from jumping around excitedly, to almost in tears. It takes a powerful artist to do that to the listener.Their videos have always been great to watch, keeping my eyes glued to the screen. Always a new style.Their variety shows have made me laugh a lot, even through the times I was quite depressed. Their smiles and laughs are contagious, and their attitudes are amazing. Though they’ve lost a couple members, they are still a part of the family (Yes Kibum and Alexander will always be part of the U-Kiss/Kiss Me family ). And now we have two new members. Hoon and AJ :) Our boys will always be U-KISS, no matter how many how many changes.I love to blast their music on my iPod dock, or simply listen to it with my headphones in in the sad corner.Learning to play their songs on the piano was something else I enjoyed doing, and singing along was something else I really liked to do. I’d put a lot of effort into it, and recorded some covers.The members of U-KISS are so real, and down to Earth. Crazy and hillarious, and really in touch with their fans. They work hard for us, and we all really appreciate it.Their music is something that really gets me going, something that I can relate to, or simply get lost in.These dorks do so much for us, and work so hard for us, and produce incredible pieces of work.That is why I am a KISSME!Simon and Martina have showed many times how cool they are in interviews, on the spot ones, and planned ones. They show a friendship with them, and that is incredible.Though they are busy, they always will make time for friends, family, and especially fans. We fans keep them going, and in return, they do the same for us.U-KISS, We will always love you, so keep making the music we love, and being the incredible people we love.I could go on and on, but long story short, I’m a Kiss Me. I love U-KISS, and I always will.

  274. There was a period of time that I didn’t want to be a U-Kiss fan. (I know the loyalty fandom thing but..) Sometimes it’s very hard to actually be a Kiss Me, just ’cause it’s pretty depressing when the members aren’t very recognized for the awesome songs they put out. I get really sad when U-Kiss still hasn’t won an award, when their songs really do deserve it. Then, for a Christmas present my friend got me an U-Kiss poster (it’s the only thing I have of U-Kiss now), and because of that I started rewatching their variety shows, and the films/clips of these boys. These boys really are very talented, and they bring such a smile to my face.
    People have to realize that they’re the only surviving K-pop group from a small company that debuted in 2008. Many groups from small company, debut and disappear, but U-Kiss has been working at it for so long. Even though they haven’t won a music award, they still keep coming out with awesome songs, and they keep working at it.
    Anyways, U-Kiss really is a group that makes me want to keep working at whatever I’m working on. When I’m doing school work, or when I’m not motivated I just look up at the poster of U-Kiss and really I just take a moment to think about their progress and how far they come, and I realize if these seven boys (nine if you count alexander and kibum) can keep doing what they love I will work hard too.
    I guess my favorite part of U-Kiss is their determination, even if they’re from a small company that debuted in 2008, look where they are now! They have their own Japanese tour, and have been to so many countries.
    These boys really make my day, and I wish them the best, and really do hope they’ll be even more successful in the future!

    btw my youtube username is smileyushi

  275. I LOVE U-KISS
    because they are so different when they are not performing they have so much talent that should be recognised by the world and they always work so hard for all of their fans all around the world they will always be number 1 in kissmes hearts even if they havent gotten number 1 yet but one day they will and that day must be close . i know u-kiss can make it and they deserve no. 1
    i love everything about u-kiss ,even their flaws,u-kiss is not perfect but thats what makes them u-kiss

    the most thing i like about UKISS is the whole group..everything about them,most especially their humble and kind personalities that really made me love them even more..what more their perseverance,hardworking and passion on what they do..before when i heard their comeback Neverland song and video,,i was hooked instantly on this boys and i knew right away this is the kind of music i wanna listen to then searched them and get to know more about them..I was hooked into 1 group by that time but when i found them,I left the other group and from then on i never left their side and been loyal and dedicated fan since then..I never waiver or place my attention to other group then but only Ukiss..I’m like a proud mama following them,protecting,loving and supporting every endevours that comes their way …That is my biggest love for these boys that i never even felt to any artists in this world :)

  277. ImmaKissmeBlackjack

    The question with the shorter answer is,”What is there NOT to like about U-Kiss?”
    The answer: NOTHING
    They are such an inspiration! They strive to do better and better all the time, and you can see that through their videos and songs! It DOES improve! I’ve always wanted to make friends with altruistic and funny people like the members of U-Kiss since their variety show “All about U-Kiss” first came out, but never really had the chance to meet anyone like that since I live in a boring neighborhood… Plus, even if I hated U-Kiss’s music, which I definitely DO NOT, I would still listen and watch them for their awesome personalities. They’re all unique, and they each contribute a lot to the group, through character AND talent! I really don’t understand why people bring themselves down because they’re super self-conscious and their self-confidence is as low as Loihi; *cough* Soohyun *Cough*. No, but seriously. You’re good looking and your a wonderful singer :D There’s no reason to bring yourself down, same with any other member.
    Another thing, I love U-Kiss as a whole! I still remember from years ago how I was trying to pick a bias in U-Kiss, but couldn’t. If you really think about it, why pick a bias in a group when you know that they’re all great! That’s like Simon taking one bottle of ranch when he has the opportunity to have a whole crate! Not that U-Kiss is a crate of ranch…
    Yeah… I suck at analogies, BUT THAT’S BESIDES THE POINT!
    To me, there will always be 9 members!

    If I were to continue, this comment would go on for another 10 pages. So I’m just gonna rap it up here.

    U-Kiss, please do me a favor:
    Keep doing what you do, and have yourselves a nice day! And please, Dong-ho (and every other member), don’t kill yourself during a photo-shoot. That was a close call that one time! I’ll be praying that nothing happens!

    The thing I like most about U-Kiss is that they never give up.

    The scandal about Jo Kwon and Soohyun being a couple? Soohyun actually thanked his best friend Jo Kwon for getting his name on the search engines.

    When Kibum and Xander left the group? The rest kept supporting them and came back stronger than ever with two new members, a new sound and a more natural image, while Kibum got himself a business and Xander a solo career.

    AJ left to study? It’s cool, I’m sure each party will cheer on for the other (AJ is probably reviewing their live performances as we speak, with an open book in front of him, fluorescent highlighters everywhere and no intention to study whatsoever because this and that happened during Inkigayo that he must report to the group).

    And, the thing that used to frustrate me the most, they never got a music award for their efforts. When Neverland came out, I was positive this would be their first win. That song is just so good. One year after, and I still love it. Alas, they didn’t win this time around either. Did they go to cry in a corner? Did they whine about it on Twitter? Did they get photographed in bars drinking their sorrows away? Nope, they worked their butts off for another album, a special album for their fans and now this.

    The thing they won instead of music awards was even more love from their fans. No, seriously. I was among the many to realize that their talent and hard work doesn’t have to be measured in the awards they take home or not (although it would be nice). When the music videos for Neverland and Doradora came out, the top comments were always about how the poster was a Primadonna/Kamilia/Inspirit/insert-another-fandom-name-here but they respect and like U-Kiss and how they watched their video multiple times and voted for them in the MNet polls. (It was around here that onions started being chopped around me and nunmuri heureune).

    So, U-Kiss, fighting! Regardless of the numbers and votes and views, this will be a daebak as always. *goes to fix the onions problem*

      It’s been a long time since I last came to this video (I’m just spending my night off) and seriously your comment makes me really happy even more than when I last saw it. I am really happy that as a fellow KissMe we really understood the fact that the greatest award that U-Kiss is constantly receiving is the LOVE of their fans! I am convinced that a KissMe will be one of the truest kind of fan out there, one that will really be genuinely different because of his/her undying affection for U-Kiss. More power to all of and to the best group out there, I hope they don’t tired too often just wrecking their bodies off. U-Kiss and KissMe fighting!

  279. I like that they’re the most consistently happy to see you guise :) like Kevin will actually flag you down and take the time to say hi :D shows that they’re super friendly and at least Kevin is a Nasty, ooooh U-KISS so nasty!

    What I like most about U-KISS is

    -Their perseverance. Despite not winning number 1 in any korean music shows, they still continued to work hard. (I understand them not winning for not young and i like you, as a kissme, I find both songs are so…… CHEESY. However, I don’t understand them not winning for the others, especially neverland and man man ha ni.)

    -Hardwork. They work hard for the fans during music show, concerts, mvs/pvs and others. They also worked hard to reach where they are now. (From strong heart, the episode when their CEO wife came and talk about U-KISS)

    -Their professionalism (According to your interview, they still look confident even though they are nervous on stage.)

    -Their ability to speak other languages that is not korean. Then I would not be like “What?” during interviews that are not in korean. I understand English, Chinese, a little Japanese. Especially in Chinese & Japanese interviews when the comments are
    “Please sub this” and I am like “Bish, I understand them, PERFECTLY FINE. AH HA SUCKERS.” but still feel sad for those who don’t understand them.

  281. Pinksugarbb

    I love uKiss for their hardworking and their unique songs. They semm so friendly and fun people :)

  282. What I like the most about U-KISS? There isn’t one thing.

    The first, is their passion. They do everything with passion, energy, fire… They always are happy to be on stage. Even on their bad days, they still do their best to give the fans and the audience their best image. By working this hard, they always get praises. On stage, they will always dance and sing like it’s the last one. They make me think of this saying my dance teacher said when we were having test: “the first oen is the last one”. They perform like it’s the last stage. I don’t know many groups who perform like this. I am so proud to be their fan for years (official, please!). They make peopel who mock them sayign they didn’t win anything shut up when they see them perform in real life. An eye for and eye… ;)
    The second thing is their humility. I had the chance to meet them and talk with them both in France and in Korea and I was very warmed to meet such sweet boys. They are really down to Earth, take the time to talk a bit with you and make many efforts to speak in English. They always tried to speak to me in English, praised my Korean, approached me when I called them to give them things, always greeted and thanked me and the other fans. I saw many different groups from up close but none have been this gentle. I think we can feel it through the interview you had with them. You seem like meeting old friends, it doesn’t feel liek an interview but liek an interview turning into a casual conversation (is it a praise for you or am I still speakign about what I like bout them?).

    The third thing will be their talent or, their ability to evolve. They changed their concepts, they had members change, but their inner talents also changed. I mean that they gave their all to be better at singing, better at rapping and better at dancing. And they keep doing it after all those years. If you listen to their first songs and to Stop Girl, man, they clearly got better and better. They need billions of thumbs up.

    As I’m French, I will stop to three points. You know we are kind of like this…
    Also, I think I could write a hundread of pages about them, I didn’t even think about winning a CD… Because their humility, their smiles and the words they gave and show me keep popping up in my head and… Maybe it’s enough :)

    Just guys, you are very lucky to be able to meet them like this. I hope you enjoyed it and that it will be some of the best memories you made during you EYK days. ;) Next time bring Spudgy, I think he’d have many things to ask.

    What I love about U-Kiss is that they’re hardworking and dedicated to their work. Not anybody can do what they’re doing…and despite not having awards yet they still keep a positive attitude into everything, always being thankful for the opportunities given to them.

    Also, I love how they’re nice to their fans and they don’t hesitate to show it unlike other K-POP groups who turn out to be cock and stuck-up. U-Kiss is totally different and that what makes me love them more!!!

    First of all I really want to thank Simon and Martina for conducting this great interview. I have always loved the interactions between Simon & Martina and UKiss and it fely like i was given an opportunity to be part of your reunion party and for that I really want to thank you.

    Now to what I like most about Ukiss:
    I first heard of UKiss when they first debuted. I still remember my sudden attraction to Dongho, a boy who is 6 YEARS YOUNGER THAN ME (seriously I felt like a pedophile).

    But my love for UKiss began last year. I was having a really hard time last year, nothing was going right in my life and regardless of being surrounded by my supportive friends, I felt alone. When I heard the song, Take me away, my heart squeezed and I just cried. It felt like somebody was taking me away, away from my pain.
    It was comforting to know that a band in KOREA, who had NO IDEA what I was going through, didn’t know who I was, realized that I needed them and just by singing this song, they were by my side.
    I love UKiss, not only for their hard work, dedication, and their endless love for Kissmes, but for the comfort they provided me with. I don’t need to win this contest, but I would appreciate one thing: please convey my thanks to all the UKiss members because that one song I don’t think I would have been the same person I am today!

    youtube: erins1317Aw Kevin and Eli were so adorable haha Everybody else was really sweet too. Hm I would say the reason I like u-kiss is that they are always so humble and grateful for where they are. None of the members have quit because they haven’t won a mutizen or any other award for their songs. They are dedicated to one another and their fans and I really admire that.

  286. What I love most about U-KISS is that when they’re backstage and in the
    dorms they all get playful and laughs but when they’re on stage they
    get serious and do really well, and the fact what they are the same as
    before and hasn’t changed too much because of their fame it just
    overhelms me with joy! :) *Loves from a Swedish KISSME!* :D (youtube name: Hildisen)

    My favorite thing about ukiss is that throughout all the years they’ve been together, they never seem to stop being great friends to each other. They’re not colleagues, they’re a family. It’s great how the still stay in contact with members who are no longer promoting with them, whether permanently or temporarily. They care about one another and their fans. It’s how genuine and earnest they are that always keeps me looking forward to what they have to give us next. Not to mention they’re very talented singers and dancers who appreciate their fans and put every bit of conviction they have into their work, just to make us happy. I also love that what you see is what you get, they never seem to change and always stay humble. U Kiss Hwaiting!!!

  288. What I love the most about UKISS is something they give to us as fans; a community, an honest one with so much generosity from the group. They’ve gone through so much and have always been fighters and to us as fans, it speaks to us to prove that they are humans, that they are one of us, that we can relate, and that they are fragile too. I’ve been through alot of KPOP groups, and have always been left craving something more; but what UKISS provides to the fans, is an affection that we can feel even if its through the internet. I know someday, every fan will find a way to connect to UKISS, because they truly love each of us.

  289. The reason why I love U-Kiss is that they never give up their dreams, even if life has been hard for them. They are professionalists in their dances and singing. But most of all they made me discover Korea, Korean music and Korean culture and I’ll never be enough thankful for that. U-Kiss fighting ! <3

  290. lol this was very entertaining! im not entering the contest to give other people a chance to win, since i know there are others who are much more dedicated and much more deserving, but i like U-KISS because they’re so sincere and hardworking. they’re really admirable people, and the world needs more people like them^^
    and they’re music video came out really well, so i think it’s safe to say all the time spent filming it was worth it. good job guys (S&M & U-KISS), i’ll definitely be supporting U-KISS in the future^^

  291. What I like the most about U-Kiss, well I like a lot of things about U-Kiss. First off I love how they all seem to be really down to earth and really all around great people. They work so hard and I believe that they deserve so much love!, but I’m a little biased here…I love how from the very beginning when I first heard their songs I automatically loved them, which was pretty amazing for me because it usually takes me about three or four listens of different songs to actually like one band. I love how they are all exceptional dancers and singers who never fail to make me smile or how in all their music videos they look and sound awesome! I also love how much they love their fans. It’s great for me that they thank us for supporting them when really they deserve all the support because they are so wonderful! I’m running out of adjetives that are synonymous for great here, oopsies. Continuing that, when I first listened to 0330 I actually started crying because of the raw emotion I felt from that video, and usually I don’t really cry from music videos. The emotion I hear when they sing really gets to me and I get really touched by it. I think it’s quite amazing that they managed to pour so much feeling into their music. They mean so much to me and I have no idea what I would be doing without them because they bring me a lot of happiness. ^^ okay that was really embarrassing, and I hope you guys don’t mind how long this is!

  292. I’m confused — maybe someone can clear this up. I’ve just started learning more about the cultural aspect of Kpop, and the whole dating thing really confuses me.

    Martina asks the boys who will be the first to marry, and they’re open about it, and seem to agree they want to, etc. But, listening to their other interview with S&M, and other interviews with Kpop Idols in general — when do these guys EVER have the time to even date?!

    I’ve watched a few videos, with different bands, and they all say ‘sleeping’ is the number one thing they do in their free time. Obviously they are pushed and work hard, which is really another thing that blows my mind about their record companies — but more on that in a minute. So, they put their career first, and dating second. . .as a few idols have admitted to doing, and also being very inexperienced in the dating game.

    Secondly, let’s say they somehow have the time to go out and date. . .the media seems to treat them in such a ridiculous way. I’ve seen a few articles claiming a ‘scandal’, because 2 Kpop idols/Kpop & an actor are allegedly dating, or they’ve had paparazzi pictures snapped of them together, etc. And then, they’re agents/record labels, etc. come out with a statement, saying there is no scandal, and they are NOT dating, and make up some excuse, if say the photos look a bit fishy.

    Then, interviewers and those uh. . .variety shows have the hide to ask them about their dating life, and first kisses, and if they’re currently dating. . .when if they were, all hell would break loose. And most idols retort that they’re inexperienced in dating — I mean, how can they have any kind of experience when they first have no time, and when they do, have articles written about how scandalous they are.

    Can someone explain this to me? Are they allowed to date, or what? And if not, when are these people allowed to start an actual social life? I just find it so odd, and smothering — unless that’s just what I’m picking up from my limited knowledge and sources.

    Definitely worth voting like crazy for U-KISS for Music Mondays. Awesome interview, guys!

  294. valelaplata

    What I like the most about U-kiss is that they taught me to never give up. They have gone through so much but they are still smiling and doing their best to make their dreams come true. And they do all that being nice and warm with everyone :) – Valeria

  295. spzimefrk16 here ;p
    I don’t really know how to explain why I like them. They just sort of drew me in naturally when I heard “Neverland” for the first time. I loved the beat and I loved the dance right away and I couldn’t help, but dance to it. I kinda forgot about them after that, but then I re-discovered them with “Tick Tack” and I was hooked ;p I just couldn’t stop playing the video and admiring the amazing dancing and synchronization and their amazing voices. Despite not living in dorms together they seem so close and I’ve always loved that about kpop bands. They all just seemed so friendly and very down-to-earth; they’re not letting the fame get to their heads like I’ve seen other kpop stars (and stars in general) do. When I see them in interviews, backstage at a music show, or on variety shows they just always seem to be so friendly and I feel like I can actually relate to them, despite the fact that they are half-way across the world and famous- with them it’s so easy to realize they’re just like you and me…only famous ;p
    I also know how hard they have it, they have never ending schedules, but they don’t let it show and even though they haven’t won any awards yet, they’re not giving up and it hurts to see them miss out on them…I know I’d have a hard time continuing on after so many years and no awards, but they persevere and their fans know they are amazing and that they don’t need a music show award to prove it. With other bands it kinda took me a while to fully fall in love and support them, but once I re-discovered U-KISS they support was almost instant. They draw you in and make you feel like they care about you and that they’re thankful for you being a fan of them…even though you’ve never met them.
    I just love them so much- they’re so talented and “so amazing, I’m going crazy” ;p U-KISS Fighting!!!

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Simon and Martina have three adorable cute kids, Spudgy, Dr. Meemersworth and Kevin. Don’t tell Spudgy and Dr. Meemersworth, but Kevin is definitely the cutest of their three kids, he looks the most like Martina. XD

    • spiralyte

      This comment just has so much win in it, I can’t even. xD
      I hope Simon and Martina see this and tweet it to Kevin. I’m sure he’d be happy to oblige. Especially since that on-set pic he took with Martina and Dothraki Man Aegyo Warrior Simon had so much likeness I almost threw up with the happy.

      Hope you don’t mind my reposting it here, you guise! <3 ^^

      • thisisjustforfunval
        thisisjustforfunval

        I love this picture of them so much, and I meant to post it with the comment but completely spaced and went about the day. Thank you for doing so (@⌒ー⌒@)

        This picture was my true inspiration for my thought process on Kevin being their adorably cute third child. Seeing the behind the scenes footage where Kevin keeps waving at them from the set like the happiest little kid in a school play and reading their story about how Kevin greeted them when they got to the set served to confirm my belief that Kevin is indeed their son :)

        • spiralyte

          Oh, you’re so welcome. <3 Truthfully when I read your comment that's the image that came to mind, so it's coincidental that it was the one you meant as well. XD

          Kevin's little wave confirmed his position as my U-KISS bias. Those teeny little eyes and that adorable little smile – oh gosh, he fits into the EYK family perfectly. I've already said he should have his own segment, how fab would that be? "Kevin's K-Pop Concerns." LOL
          Nah, that'd have too much win in it, we'd all perish, surely.

          I like the way you think… <3 My theory is he slept plenty on purpose just to be there when S&M arrived. Because he is a good son like that, yes.. Yes, he is. ^^~

        • thisisjustforfunval
          thisisjustforfunval

          OMG that is exactly what I thought too! That he had probably chosen to shoot his solo early so he could rest before they got there and be able to greet them and spend time with them when they got there.

          Kevin is an adorable bias to have, unfortunately he isn’t my bias, that title goes to Soohyun, but I’ve always thought of Kevin as the cute adorable funny little brother I always wanted. I’d love a little brother like him.

        • spiralyte

          I’m glad we share sentiments. :D

          I was fighting between Soohyun as well… He’s so handsome and refined, yet passionate! Kevin’s just too adorable to ignore.. Truthfully I love all of them, I can’t really pick a favorite, but I totally agree with you – who wouldn’t want Kevin waking them up in the morning with that adorable eye-smile!? Oh, my feelz… …Guess he is my bias. XD <3

          I'd love to have him as an older brother who can protect me, because being slightly attracted to your younger brother is admittedly awkward. ^^;

        • thisisjustforfunval
          thisisjustforfunval

          Soohyun won my heart from the first moment I saw him, and then I heard him sing and I was his forever <3

          OMG I just had a thought, going back to your original comment about how S&M should retweet my comment to Kevin. Kevin watches their videos right? So what's to say he hasn't already seen my comment, and our subsequent conversation, if he stopped by their page?! I hope he has seen it and gotten a really great laugh from it with "those teeny little eyes and that adorable little smile" of his you love so much lighting up his face. Food for thought huh. :D

        • spiralyte

          :OOOOOOOO

          OMG DON’T EVEN
          MY FEEEEELZZZZZ

          I would just die if Kevin ever took notice of anything I said, EVER.. How silly of me. How could I. /brb #DYING

          You’re so swoony over Soohyun, it’s positively adorable. ^^ He deserves all the love, he’s a total sweetie pie. :)))

          I know Kevin saw the post; he tweeted to S&M about it earlier (wow, I sound like a total stalker, LOL. /runsandhides). I can’t know if he’s checked back or not though.. Now that makes me wonder if Kevin or Eli read the comments us KissMe’s make on here and relay them back to U-KISS as a unit. Oh cripes…

          Then again, if they have such a healthy relationship with Simon and Martina, I’m sure they must be used to the wackiness of us Nasties. XDDDDD
          (But still, Kevin, please don’t think I’m weird or anything! I really just love you platonically – oh, cripes me Ican’tstopit. =. =)

        • thisisjustforfunval
          thisisjustforfunval

          Don’t worry I saw the same little interaction between S&M and Kevin in twitter. Our boys from U-Kiss all have wacky carefree spirits and I’m sure they love and appreciate their fans being the exact same way, especially those who follow EYK :) I’m sure Kevin would be flattered to hear that he has another adorning fan speak so sweetly of him. I actually really like knowing and other singers know about EYK and that they can see their fans reactions to them here. I feel like Simon and Martina have set up one of the best forms for fans to interact with each other. Each video comment section is like its own individual awesome fan club :)

        • spiralyte

          You’re too sweet. ^^~ U-KISS deserves all the love possible. They work really hard and they haven’t won an award; that’s total injustice to me. I’m voting hardcore for them, they really deserve it. :)

          “Each video comment section is like its own individual awesome fan club :)”
          I want to love this comment forever and ever. <3

    What do I like about U-Kiss? What is there NOT to like about U-Kiss???
    This group has proven to be one of the most hardworking and persevering kpop groups of all time. They are always working hard to reach the top, and will continue to do so until they go above and beyond. It is quite a shame that they have not won #1 on any music shows yet, but they are one of the only groups that deserve a number one spot. U-Kiss is a great blend for a perfect group: amazing teamwork even through hard times (such as the addition and subtraction of members), down-to-earth personalities (thank you guys for highlighting this through your interviews!), the ability to communicate with fans all across the world (korean, english, chinese, japanese) and overall, they show passion through their actions. U-Kiss is and forever will be one of the greatest K-Pop groups in the world, and it makes me and others proud to be called Kiss Mes.
    U-Kiss fighting!!! We will always support them. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

    What I love most about U-Kiss: Their friendship & how they’re very close with each other & how they’ll never give up for their goals [They're very inspirational] & I love each one of their personalities & the way they love their fans so much that I can actually feel their love for me as a KissMe & how their music makes me energetic & just seeing them smiling & happy makes me feel so happy no matter what I’ve been through the day. They’re very precious to me & I’ll never ever stop loving them ~♥

  299. One quality that I don’t think any Korean idol has except
    U-Kiss is Sincerity. I’ve been supporting U-Kiss for 3 years now and I went to
    every showcase they had here in Singapore. I saw them both on stage and
    backstage but I don’t see any differences. They don’t change their personality
    during backstage. They still have the same smile, energy and of course, fan
    service. Not being bias but U-Kiss’s fan service is Number 1. They treat everybody
    just like we’ve been friends for years. I still remember one incident where a
    lot of fans were surrounding them but instead of getting angry, they are worried
    about their fans safety instead. I personally heard Soohyun said “조심” which
    means Be careful a lot of times. It just shows how sincere they are even if it
    is between idol and fans. U-Kiss
    dedicated songs especially to fans. Songs aren’t enough and they made an album especially
    for Kissme. Last point for Sincerity, is their trip to Colombia making them the
    1st Kpop group to perform there. This shows that they care for the fans
    over there and heard their wish to meet U-Kiss hence they flew over there
    especially for them.

    U-Kiss was the first boy band I found on youtube that got me into kpop in the first place and for that I am so greatful because I have gone though everything, from being a fangirl meeting new people to watching you guys. U-Kiss are my favorite kpop band because every member is so special, and different and amazing. Kevin is my ultamite BIAS. Yep.. the most.. ULTIMAATEEE, out of every other group, Kevin stole my heart from the start (rhymed~) and I just cannot describe enough why. He is kind and loving and sweet and always happy no matter how hard he works, rarely gets angry, he is my role model for life! AJ I miss you so much already!! I love you like r squared pie!! Soohyun laughs so warmly, he is so manly and kind! Dongho, the little baby <3 I love your cute lax attitude <3 Kiseop, you really are the best ulzzang in the world! Hoon, you seem so nice and your voice is amazing! Eli, you are like the comedian, so funny and dorky and loveable pigeon <3 Their songs are amazing and everytime I hear they are bringing out songs I actualy start crying because I am so happy, like when they worked so hard on DORADORA and then brought out a special album just for us, I teared up with joy ♥ They work SO hard with no break and need way more love and popularity in Korea! I am a proud Irish fan! Kevin I look up to you and I hope to one day get to meet you and give you a hug, its one of my biggest goals, I would really love some Ukiss CDs(with kevins sig YAY). I live in Ireland and no kpop stuff is sold here. I really appreciate all you do Simon and martina, can't wait to watch the interview!!! <333 LOVE from Ireland. UKISS FIGHTING! ♥

  301. What I love most about U-Kiss is their perseverance along with their personalities. They’ve been around since SHINee, even before Batoost and MBLAQ. They still haven’t won any awards, but they’re still willing to put their ultimate all into everything they do. This has also made them pretty humble, and I don’t know I just love the fact that even though they hurt inside, they try their best to not hurt anymore. For their personalities, omg, you can never be bored with them as it seems, haha. All of them are just great :D

    What I like most about U-KISS? That question shouldn’t be asked! Lol. JK. Well, they have the LOOKS, TALENT, BRAINS, what more can you ask for? :) Plus, they have passion for what they’re doing. Maybe they haven’t been #1 in music shows, been through a lot of challenges & changes but they didn’t stop in making good songs and showing their talent to all of us. They are the most hardworking and BEST group i’ve ever known in my life.

    They don’t just say, “we love our fans and blah.. blah..” instead, THEY SHOW THEIR LOVE TO US! That’s one special thing about them. :”>

    I am a Kiss Me for 11 months and 21 days now, & I don’t, and will never regret this 11 months and 21 days with U-KISS. I promise to always support and love them! :)

Eli – oh my lord. What a cutie pie! Great interview! I am really digging the new song. I feel a buy coming on and new fan for U-Kiss! FIghting!

  305. What I like most about U-Kiss is how down to earth each member is. When watching any interviews or seeing a post by them on social network sites, they always make you feel like they truly care about their fans all over the world. They have such a wonderful connection with the fans and it’s something I’ve always admired about U-Kiss. They don’t take anything for granted and are such appreciative and kind men. U-Kiss Fighting!

  306. haha I died when I noticed that Kevin just kept waving at you guys filming. GOD MY HEART STRINGS.

  307. ha hah!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2hE8jiHd7Q THIS is what I hear when I listen to the intro and pulsing strings in this song.

  308. I love (sorry, like is not a strong enough word) U-KISS
    because I believe they are one of, if not THE most fan dedicated group in the entire
    KPop industry. Many groups fail to establish a strong enough fan base to help
    them challenge the ‘Big 3’ companies and keep their head above the ocean of
    Kpop groups, but U-KISS has managed to stay strong for a good four years. Even
    if they are yet to win #1 on a music show (why that is I can’t seem to work
    out), they continue to regularly bring out new and better music fuelled through the love of their fans. They are constantly on Twitter updating their fans on their
    happenings in multiple languages as well as the frequent selca to melt a few
    more hearts. I think U-KISS are idols not only career-wise but also as people.
    They are representative of persistence, strong work ethics, teamwork, and
    dedication to what they love.. their music and their fans. :D

    U-KISS HWAITING!!

  309. I still can’t get over how much the pulsing strings sound like some theme music in Zelda games…i can’t remember where it is, but I mean…dang, LoZ up in there.

  310. There’re so many reasons of why I love UKISS, cannot only point out one reason. UKISS are seven HARDWORKING individuals with seven incredibly positive spirits. To me, they seem to always think optimistic, which is one of the reasons of why they inspire me so much. They are super-talented and their personalities are so sweet and humble and awesome and happy and I don’t even know. And their bond between themselves AND also the bond between UKISS and KISSME. THAT is priceless. Nothing is able to seperate them. UKISS make me SMILE. Complete. I don’t know what I would do if they weren’t a part of my life. Love Love love them.
    But what really breaks me is that they haven’t won an award in Korea yet. They’ve been through so much with the switching-members and such. They should have won AT LEAST one award. Which they haven’t. These guys deserves so much more, which is why I will do everything I can as an international fan (GOD I really wish I was a K-KissMe) to help them and support them in any possible way. (actually I’m currently trying to get all of their albums which is HARD to find ;A;) And YES, I am a hell of a proud fan. So if others won’t open their eyes to realize and recognize their talent, I will do everything in my power to make them open their eyes.
    BY THE WAY I totally agree with you (simon&martina) that they really need a vacation. I hope, for their next comeback after Stop Girl-promotion, that they will take a long long break and come back with something that blows everyone’s mind. Something like an EXPLOSION! And during that long break, I will miss them so so so much. But it’s for their sake. Their health. But I will patiently wait for them until they are back.

    SORRY FOR THE LONG POST BUT I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT I LOVE THEM WITH ALL MY HEART AFTER THIS. ALWAYS WILL.

  311. I love U-Kiss because they always have amazing videos, dance moves and their songs are the best, always! And they are the most hard-working group I have ever seen from Korea.

  312. I absolutely love how nice they all are! They seem like they really care for their fans and about each other, which is what I think a group like this needs to be able to be successful. :D

    The reason why I love UKISS? I LOVE EVERY SINGLE THING ABOUT THEM. They’re too perfect ♥ I mean, even though they’re getting a lot of attention and becoming more famous, they are still down-to-earth, THEY ARE STILL HUMBLE AS EVER ♥ And they NEVER FORGET to THANK everyone. I love their very strong bond, I love how they treat each other with respect, how they help each other, how they do things together, and how strong they can be when there are issues about one member or about them because they can still manage how to solve these problems. They will protect each other, they will cheer for the others.. THEY ARE TOO LOVABLE. They are very hard working, they never give up, that’s why UKISS is still here with us and still continues their wonderful music. They are the BEST. They inspired me in a lot of ways, they are the reason why I never give up and the reason to do my best. And they have this child-like personality ~ hehehe , that’s UKISS for ya ;) They can change from kids to young men…

  314. Velvetblue Veille

    Why I like U-Kiss? I’ve been a KissMe since I watched 0330. That song really touches my heart. So I decided to watch other videos of them. I feel that they always sing sincerely from the deepest of their heart and I get their message. While watching their fancam performances, I wish I was there to sing along and shout out the fanchants for them. U-Kiss is the most friendliest Kpop group which I’ve ever known. They care and always keep in touch with their fans even when they go abroad. Although I know that they’re busy and need time to break, they still greet their fans. Dear U-Kiss, believe that finally u will be an amazing Kpop star because no pain, no gain. Hope that miracle will come someday. From Int KissMe. ^^

  315. UKISSME

    I love U-KISS! Why? Because they working so hard and never give up for us, KISSME’S. Every time when I hear songs of them, watching interviews, shows or anything else of U-KISS, they make me happy. I don’t know what, but U-KISS is the only group, that reached my heart. When they cry, I cry. When they are happy, I am happy.They are unique, they are the best, they are U-KISS and I will never ever be not a fan of them. I will always love Soohyun, Kevin, Dongho, Eli, AJ, Kiseop, Hoon and also Xander and Kibum too! Although they are no longer members of U-KISS, I will always love and support them. Every single member of U-KISS is working so hard, for them self, for their family or friends and for us, KISSME’s! U-KISS, 화이팅! <333 A proud KISSME from Germany. Sorry for my bad English! ^^'

  316. I love U-Kiss because of their versatility. They can sing upbeat and catchy songs, ballads, dance party songs… And when they dance, their movements are so precise and synchronized. Aside from their talents and good looks, their personalities are also great, and they are so humble. They reach out to us KissMes and we can really feel how much they cherish us. And even when I think they are really overworked, (Please let them rest! Give them a day off or two, please.) they still continue to do their best to bring us even better music and an improved U-Kiss, everytime. They don’t stay put in their current position, but they try out new things too to expand their horizons (promoting in Japan, making and producing their own songs – for AJ) They are also very hardworking and dedicated to what they do. U-Kiss fighting! KissMes got your back. :))

    What I like about U-Kiss (besides their prettiness, of course) is that they have been working so so so so sooooo hard these 4 years for their fans and still didn’t win any awards, yet they always greet everyone with a smile and continue doing their best at all times.
    Even when they’re tired or nervous or anything, no one will ever notice because they always put a smile on and stay super positive and love their fans ♥
    They are so talented in singing, dancing, and most of all being good idols and role models for their fans and even non-fans.
    I hope they get a little break so they can refill their energy and keep trying hard.
    They’re already talented even without the awards, but I hope they will win some so they don’t give up and stay confident of themselves :)

    Thank you U-Kiss for all your hard work and dedication to all the KissMes out there :)

  318. This is so much awesome, and I like when videos like these put into perspective just how difficult it really is to be a performer.

    When I first got into U-Kiss’ music, and that was fairly late – sometime last year, I was excited that they already had a TON of music for me to listen through. I enjoyed pretty much all of them, so I knew I found a new fave~ I like it when an artist has a variety of sounds without really changing their characters. And then you guys do the Jeju interviews, and I saw how sweet and genuine they were, I was hooked even more~♥

    What I love most about ukiss is their efforts in establishing a strong connection with kissmes.they are the only kpop group who has completely convinced me that they really do appreciate and love their fans. They  repeatedly express their unconditional love to us kissmes through their display of hard work, without displaying any signs of fatigue at all. I have been a kissme for 3 years and I could really feel how genuine they are when it comes to treating their fans. I recall my previous encounter with dongho at a ukiss fan meet when he totally convinced me that he does really care for his fans and is very patient with us.  Unknowingly, i had smudged his signature on the album and with a very worried look, he motioned to me to check my hand if it has the ink and didn’t hesitate to offer to sign it again even though it was only a small spot that was smudged. He clearly knows how much a fan treasures an idol’s autograph and i was so touched i wanna cry,From then on, I had been consistently  loving ukiss and following them. Although i do yearn for them desperately to win number one, i am grateful enough that they are still together after four exhausting years.The fact that they are still together despite not having won any awards reiterates how much they treasure and love kissmes, to the extent that they have given up chances to go separate ways, where they might have even done better. I do believe that unlike many other groups, they do not produce music just to win an award but rather, for their fans.

    Why do I like U-Kiss. Well for as many possible reasons a U-Kiss fan can.
    They are smart, talented, and kind. That’s a combination that I like in absolutely anyone. Even the “r- squared pi” lyric was actually really witty (though a little cheesy) and I commend AJ for thinking of that. I mean…I can’t write a rap much less compare math to love.

    Another thing I like about U-Kiss is that in all of their personalities seem to come out in it. I can see a bit of each member when they sing a line a certain way or through their acting in a MV. I mean, even their pictures seem to be overflowing with personality. I like B.A.P. and many other groups, but they always seem to be expressing the group instead of themselves through their music.

    U-Kiss is also really friendly with their fans. I love that because I feel like I’m close to them even though I’m on the other side of the world. It’s like they are comfortable with all their fans as if they are friends.

    My last reason that I will write for liking U-Kiss so much…Kiseop. Kiseop for me is like TOP for Martina. I love him and I fangirl everytime (embarrassingly so…). But he is my ultimate bias, and I will cheer him and the rest of U-Kiss (who I also love respectively). Next time you ask I might talk about each an every member thoroughly (I apologize ahead of time :) ).

  321. Reasons why I love U-kiss…well for starters U-kiss has to be one of the most likeable groups to me!
    They’ve been with me ever since I started to get into Kpop in 2009, sentimental value right there♥! One thing I like a lot about them is the fact that they debuted in 2008 and are still going at it, looking chipper as always. During the years many groups have come and gone, but U-kiss always returned even though they haven’t been one of the most popular groups.
    They also have their own sound, so you always know if it’s a U-kiss song you’re listening to. They can also have really awesome dances like the ones in Neverland and Tick Tack. I love how some members keep doing certain gestures in their music videos such as Soohyun clenching his fist when doing the high notes (looks awesome) or Dongho who seems to love stroking his lips :> … like really love…doing it…

    Their latest comeback has to be one of their best. I was totally blown away, because they look better than ever and all the members get their time to shine individually and I can’t stop humming to Stop Girl!! :)

    After the Stop Girl promotions I hope they all will be able to get a little rest and then return with another awesome album. Hopefully AJ will be able to participate then as well! U-KISS HWAITING♥!

    Oh wow… is it just me or do i see a NCIS reference???? with the Mcgee and coffee thing… O.o

  323. Ok, so this time I’m going to comment, and even better participate in the contest…
    Sooo, I become a fan of U-kiss because of you!!! Yes, Simon and Martina, you two are the main reason! Well about a year or so (let’s just say a year…) I started to get interested in korea and k-pop. But as you know, out there there are a lot of k-pop groups, so I really didn’t know where to start off. So I just started to listen to all the stuff that you proposed, and of course it’s not that I like all the stuff that you talk about (between I’m a really huge fan of ballads XD), but when I saw how nice the U-kiss members was to you and that they are so easy to talk to I became to pay more attention to the word U-kiss whenever I saw it! And of course after I become to like them more and more because of they’re hard work!
    So that’s it for now, a big hug from Italy.
    P.S. my youtube account is Alisa otaku, and yeah I’m a nasty at the point that I created my youtube account only to subscribe to your channel!

  324. Sad thing is when I speak around my friends I’ll be speaking in like 7 different languages at once. I’ll go from English to Korean to French to Spanish to Japenese to Greek to German to Mandarin and everyone will stop and stare at me! I’m so glad I’m not the only person who does this tho….

  325. To be honest, the first time I heard Shut Up by U-Kiss, I didn’t like it. I have this thing where if I don’t like the intro to the song, I’ll just tune out the rest. However, I watched their video for 0330 and decided to give them another chance. Then, I saw Neverland and Tick Tack and I knew this was a band worth listening to. You see, I’m not easily won over opposed to those other fangirls who will spaz over any attractive guy. Usually, I don’t like being grouped together with those other crazies, but I am proud to say I’m a KissMe. I love U-Kiss for their persistence and dedication to their songs, and on top of that, being really humble. Seriously, they just seem so genuinely nice.

      Where I live it is just second nature to speak Spanglish on a daily basis. Not only speak it but write in it as well. There are some words that I’m not sure I’ve ever learned how to say in English, and I’m a native English speaker. It’s fun to see the reaction of people who are not accustomed to hearing a conversation in two languages at the same time.

  326. what do i love about U-Kiss? everything!♥ whats not to love about U-Kiss? there is waaaaay too much to list x) each member is unique, perfect and lovable in their own special way ♥ i love Kevin for his utter adorble-ness (i cant help but call him adorable-though he can be so sexy), his amazing vocal talent and what an all-around great guy he is ^^ ♥. i love how Eli’s dream is to be a great father (: that is just so precious ♥ and you cant forget his great rapping skills. he is just an amazing guy i would love to have as my friend. AJ, i miss him with U-Kiss right now ): But definitely, look at him, going back to school to finish his education. even when he achieved his dream, he took time of to go back to school. everyone should learn from that haha stay in school x) AJ is a amazing person too; he’s cute and funny and awesome and i love his rapping xD and the fact that these 3 speak English is awesome. it gives U-Kiss a more global aspect, being able to talk and communicate with not only Korean fans, but the majority of English speaking fans around the world. Soohyun is an amazing leader. he really cares for his members and the fans-as do all the members. lol he’s so funny too xD oh, and his vocals…amazing! Hoon, i just love him and his voice. im so happy when i see him getting more and more vocal parts ♥ he may not have been there when U-Kiss started, but he definitely belongs there now ♥ Lol. Kiseop, whats not to love about Kiseop? not only is he attractive (xD), but he is also a talented singer and super funny xD all the members are! i love watching them on variety shows xDD ♥ and last, but not least, our maknae Dongho. i love that im his noona LOL xD ♥ he is the cutest as the maknae, but also a mature young man. his rapping is amazing and so is his acting ( along with Kiseop x]). he is forever the lovable maknae ♥
    \(^0^*)/ all these extraordinary men working together in a group as U-Kiss to fulfill their dreams is just a wonderful and beautiful experience for them and us as fans. they are perfect and totally awesome and they deserve every bit of love and support that we give them, and much more ♥♥ p(^0^)q
    i am a proud KissMe and always will be ♡ d(^ v ^*) each and everyone one of these amazing guys hold a special place in my fangirl heart ♥ and i wil support forever will all my fangirlism and myself x) 사랑해 유키스! 화이팅! ♥ (/^o^)/♡ ♥\(^0^*)/

    • It’s amazing how much they love each other and their fans too. They are amazing guys! And I totally agree with you. Although I am much younger than they are, there’s a connection I feel whenever I see them on shows and other media activities. They put the smile on my face and make my sun shine. I am also a proud KissMe. 오빠들, 사랑합니다! 화이팅!!!

    There are loads of reasons why i adore them. It hard to express my love with words. But i’ll try my best.
    Determination. YES, their determination to produce good music and their determination to impress others. They’ve gone through hardships and critisms, but they never gave up, they NEVER failed to produce good music and they never failed to make us happy by dedicating their songs to us.
    Love. Love is the word. I can feel their love for music whenever they sing, i can feel their love for their fans and how much they want to make us happy. And i have to admit UKISS never failed to make me happy. I like how in the group itself, they treat each other like brothers,like a family. They help each other up when they’re down. They joke around with each other. They fight, they solve the problem they shake hands and move on. That’s how family should be. OHANA means family and family means no one should be left behind.
    Lastly, i would like to thank Simon and Martina. Thank you for all the hard work. This video made my day. It really did. <3

    omg I FINALLY FOUND THE SONG I’VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS. ITS SHUT UP weeeeeeeeee .. I heard this song on Korea TV two years ago but I never knew who sang it and I’ve been searching for it ever since .. thank you eatyourkimchi <3

  329. Lavinia Damian

    My history with UKiss:

    The first song I’ve heard from UKiss was
    Neverland, when they released it last year. I really liked the song and
    the choreography catched my eye right away! It was awesome BUT … still
    I wasn’t really that into them, like trying to know their names and
    things like that …

    And then I saw the interview that Simon and
    Martina did with UKiss in Jeju. For me this is the best kpop interview
    I’ve ever seen and definitely my favorite one! It all started with the
    incredible cute and nice Kevin that made me love him right away, from
    the very first seconds I saw him! The way he approached S&M, he so
    friendly and a little nervous, I think it’s just adorable. And, oh my, I
    laughed so hard when AJ acted being mad at S&M for making fun of
    his mathematical lyrics * I was literally on the floor laughing and
    barely could breath*. It was so freaking funny! The atmosphere of the
    interview was great because it felt more like a friendly chat between
    them than an actually interview and it allowed us all to see how down to
    earth and friendly the boys from UKiss are! That was the moment when I
    felt like I really wanted to know more about UKiss and for that I gotta
    give a big Thank You to Simon & Martina for letting me know about
    these wonderful boys!

    Regarding their work what I like about
    UKiss is that they have great choreographies (the one from Neverland is
    my favorite) and their title songs usually are quite catchy and easily
    get stuck in your head for the whole day ( I’ve listened to Tick Tack
    for a whole week every day non stop). I can’t forget about the vocal
    skills of Hoon and Soohyun that impress me everytime and gives me
    goosebumps, just like when I’ve listened to Forbidden Love. (Fun fact or
    ~creepy fact~ idk, after I’ve listened to Forbidden Love one night I’ve
    dreamt of Soohyun, a total random dream anyway … and the next morning
    I was like WTF O_o, you aren’t even my bias in UKiss (fyi that’s Kevin
    ^_^ ) so what are you doing in my dreams XD! That’s how much his voice
    got me! :) ).

    Anyway, UKiss are great performers and more
    importantly great people and they’ll always have my support even though I
    live like thousands of miles away from Korea ( T_T )!
    Hope that in
    the midst of all these promotions they don’t forget to take care of
    their health, eat well and try to sleep a little bit more even though I
    know that they practically have no time to breath.

    Oh my, that’s a quite a long post I’ve made *blush* so I’d better end it now …

    What’s not to love about them? There’s something about those boys that you can’t resist. Maybe it’s because they appear so close to their fans. (And down-to-earth like what you said before) For me they’re the most hardworking ones and the strongest too, knowing what they’ve been through in the past years. I admire their fighting spirit. And as a fanboy who’s going through unstable emotions, I’ve always looked up to them to hold on and keep going. They’re an inspiration to many and I hope they realize that not getting the appreciation they deserve does not equate to being unsuccessful artists. If they can’t be appreciated by their own people, well they got us the Kissmes, ’til the end. #kissmeforever

    I love UKISS because of their consistent hard work and sincerity. They have debuted for 4 years and have hardly won any prize. *sniff sniff* However unlike others who would simply give up and choose another path, they stick to their ambition and passion. *grand and majestic music playing in the background* Unlike some groups that belong to big entertainment companies that could afford making fancy, extravagant music videos and costumes, UKISS does not have a strong support from its company. Groups that are from more well-known companies are definitely more likely to gain popularity as they have so many successful sunbaes. UKISS doesn’t. All they have is their talent and determination. I appreciate and respect their effort. All of them have came such a long way from all the failures and disappointments, but they know how to stand up again and reflect then improve. The unhappy and unsuccessful past did not act as a resistor to their dreams, instead, from those experiences UKISS has gained maturity and they are willing to make changes in order to innovate. They have evolved significantly over these years, from being very (ironically) young and boyish in “Not Young”, to the strong and powerful “Man Man Hani”, from the romantic “0330″ to the mature and manly “Stop girl”. I am deeply amazed by how much they have changed while still being themselves (none of them have turned into meanies). Kevin is still being sweet and smiley and cheerful and angelic and…yea I think you understand. :D I hope that they would gain more popularity in Korea and continue to inspire more people who are pursuing their dreams.

    p.s. KEVIN IS SO SWEETTTT!!! ARGHHH!

    p.p.s. I envy you..really… I do.

    LOVE YOU GUYS and you surely deserve a MASSIVE THANK YOU from all the Kiss-me’s.

  332. I love U Kiss so much! They have been going through tough times now and then but they are still holding on, standing still and strong and going through everything together. They have never won anything (so far) and it just breaks my heart to see them sad… They care for their fans and they would do anything to make their fans happy. Their determination to impress others and receiving lots of LOVE just makes me love them more. They treat each others like one big happy family. Like brothers who love each other. They never fail to make me smile and they are just so ADORABLE! Even without AJ they still can make a great song. When AJ is back in the group, I’m sure they would create more music to entertain other people. U KISS IS NO. 1 IN MY HEART!!!! Thank you for always creating awesome music and making other people happy. I guess you guys did that cause you like receiving love ^^ In return I give you my LOVE~
    p/s: For Simon and Martina: Why didn’t you bring Spudgy?

  333. are we allowed to enter in all the 4 websites?

  334. o dear, how am i going to explain this clearly haha, lets see~ ofcourse like everyone else, i think Ukiss are the best, and they really are, they deserve more <3 I like their vocals, i like their dance (not that i can do it.. but thats something different) besides all of their love and talent, they are the only one!!! that my mom likes.. I do need to call them tick tack but she doesnt like the other kpopgroups i listen, so thats a really talent! haha I love how nice they are, i love how patience they are, and i love how they keep fighting even tho they havent won any music award, yes they won that one of ministry but still i really wish they did win some more, but we can proudly say that all the kissmes defeated GD in the EYK kpopchart rigth?! Ukiss is unique and they make my heart skip a beat whenever i see them (latelty im watching kdrama again and i watched KPOP the ultimate audition, i knew that MBLAQ would be in it), but suddendly i saw Ukiss… i died. The second i saw them i jumped from the chair and scared the hell out fo the sleeping cat and my mom, i started fangirling the whole episode long.. The cat got angry tho… Can i descripe the feeling? not really it was just happiness and joy, almost made me cry. I missed my change seeing them in Paris last year and that still sucks. Since a while im walking in the morning with my dog and most of the time i end up with Ukiss singing in the park (glad no-one is there to hear me.. i think..xD) i will stay with Ukiss till the end of time~ because they deserve it <3

    What i like about U-KISS is their passion in singing and dancing. Their singing and dancing skills really impresses me. Even though the dances are sometimes hard, but they still tried their best. Also, their love for their fans are really deep and made me feel proud as a Kiss Me :) Even though they never got 1st place, they still tried their best and never stop trying. They are really sincere in showing how much they love and care for their fans ~ I’m a proud Kiss Me and i’m not ashamed of it ! U-KISS FTW <3

  336. Few years back , I was a girl in school who helped my friends to download songs( I know it’s bad but we’re poor) I stumble across ukiss’s ok and manmanhani and decided to download it . I added the song into my playlist and listen to it on my way to school at 530am . Their voice , it was heavenly . I knew then , at that exact moment , I am in love with UKISS . Rushed home after school that day to search for all their songs and transferred it into my phone , searched their videos on YouTube , googled their pictures and profile . Searched for their twitter and memorise so much about them . I bought nearly all of their albums but none is autographed . And may I pleaseeee be able to receive their signed album from you I’d be the happiest Kissme ever . Please let me have them ! Oh and , I did ukiss’s cover but I can’t really rap .

    I have loved every single U-Kiss single, without fail! And I can listen to their songs and sing and dance to them over and over without getting tired of them.

    It’s hard to tell why I love UKISS in a foreign language but I’ll try!
    UKISS is the first korean group I’ve ever heard (and continue to listen until I die!!!). I listened to a song and immediately fell in love with them! They are handsome, funny, talented, serious, honest, sooo cute and sooo sweet!!! I love how they take care and work hard for their fans, the strength and the commitment they put in ther job, I love EVERYTHING about them!!! Even if they still haven’t won a prize, they always give 100% and more. This is something to keep in mind!!! Also, watching their videos you can see how wonderful they are!
    UKISS is really special for me!!! I can’t write properly how much I love them♥♥♥

  343. NaToTheWak

    SO THAT’S WHAT YOU BRIBED NASTIES WITH TO GET STOP GIRL VOTED UP?

    “special guest apperence during KMM” *_* please tell me U KISS wil be there ..please (I don’t mind Morney coming aswell XD)

  345. theicecrumbs

    One of the first ever Kpop songs that I got absolutely addicted to was 0330. But I’ve never “personally connected” to UKISS as a Kpop group. I just really liked that song but I wasn’t interested with UKISS at all.

    This is, in fact, only the second interview of them that I’ve watched in EVER (the 1st one being your backstage interview with them). And I’m pleasantly surprised at how adorable they are. That Kevin kid is like barfing rainbows and unicorns all over the place. He’s a freakin’ unicorn!

    Oh noes. I think I just became a fan.

  346. Eli speaking about fatherhood was so heartwarming. Just imagining him walking around with a little mini-Eli in hand made me smile…and my eyes get kind of watery. Thank you for the interview Simon and Martina!!

  347. love love love the interview.. thanks so much!!! and by the way . don’t call security on Mordney hahahahaha

  348. dothrakiwomanwarrior

    There are so many things to love about U Kiss, but what I love the most, and what this video really highlights, is how humble they still are and how much they appreciate all their fans, even though they’re famous worldwide and have thousands of fangirls who are willing to crash your site on their behalf. It just blows my mind that they can be so hardworking yet still be so appreciative of all their support, since they deserve all of the support that they have (and more).

    Croatia is pronounced the same way in Korean and in Finnish! (Why do I feel like a winner?:D)

    As to why I love U-kiss, I really don’t know why. I love their song, stage performances and the members. What else could there be?
    U-kiss was one of my first kpop bands, and the fact that some of them spoke English was really helpful when there weren’t any subs available. It was also easier to admire someone who had lived in America and was Korean (while I’m here in Finland which is in the middle of nowhere).
    I dunno what else is there to say: I just love their music and when the members are so nice and good dancers, it’s just a big plus!

    I love U-Kiss because you can really feel that they do everything passionately and that it’s all for their fans. They mention their fans so often and seem to be extremely grateful for everything. Unfortunately they don’t get rewarded as much as most other Korean boygroups that have been around for so long. They’ve never won a #1 award in Korea and for some groups this would be so disappointing that they would disband. But U-Kiss knows that all that doesn’t matter as long as they’re #1 in our hearts (and on EatYourKimchi KMM Charts haha ^^). Each member shines with their own talents and together they managed to develop their own sound that makes them unique. And they are so humble and down-to-earth (but that’s something everyone knows by now I guess). U-Kiss is one of the leading groups in the Hallyu wave and I’m so proud that they’ve come this far – without acting like superstar gods, without having a huge company behind them, even without winning #1, just with their music and their charms. How can you not love them? :)

  353. LOVE UKISS BECAUSE THEIR ARE SO HUMBLE AND SWEET. THEY HAVE BEEN TROUGH A LOT, I MEAN THEY LOST 2 MEMBERS AND NOW, AJ IS IN THE US. IT MUST BE DIFFICULT CHANGING A LOT. I CAN´T UNDERSTAND WHY UKISS NEVER WON AN AWARD AND WHY THEY AREN´T ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESFULL KPOP BANDS. I LOVE THEIR MV, THEIR PASSION, THEIR AMAZING VOCALS, ETC. I ADMIRE UKISS, THEY NEVER GIVE UP. THEY ARE MY ROLE MODEL, I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Mmy youtube username is marianagaara

  354. What i love about U-Kiss you ask? humm….Every time i see them they are doing their best to be happy and make others happy. They are truly lovely and like the little brothers that i wish i had. (they’re all younger than me).
    They are so hard working and even though they haven’t gotten any awards they still put 100% behind everything they do. (Even if they didn’t/don’t like a song..they made sure no one but them knew about it).
    Whether they are working on their music as a group or doing individual work like acting, musicals, variety shows, radio, or even making the choice to go to college (AJ) they truly try to do their best every single time. They not only look out for each other but their fans as well. What really gets me is how humble they all are. Never, not once have they forgotten to say thank you to their fans. Eli even sometimes spends time talking to fans on twitter, to my complete and utter amusement.
    In short, they are seriously talented hard working humble gracious human beings that deserve every good thought and cheer that they have and will receive.

    UKISS FIGHTING!!!

    p.s. totally have this song on repeat. and even sang it (without it playing in my car) with the windows down when i came to a red light on the busiest street on my college campus. awkward….but worth it.

I CAN´T UNDERSTAND WHY UKISS NEVER WON AN AWARD AND WHY THEY AREN´T ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESFULL KPOP BANDS. I LOVE THEIR MV, THEIR PASSION, THEIR AMAZING VOCALS, ETC. I ADMIRE UKISS, THEY NEVER GIVE UP AND THEY MAKE ME HAPPY. THEY ARE MY ROLE MODEL, I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH

      I died at the homeless comment too HAHAHA it’s a good thing Kevin found EYK and when they watched it, they probably told the management that they needed a better set HAHA

  357. What i love about U-kiss is their dedication to their fans and how they always try their best no matter how tired they are and how busy their schedules are. Also even though they went through a change in their members, both new and old U-Kiss are very dedicated and in sync with their dances in their videos.

  358. What I like about Ukiss? Apart from the visuals and all the other superficial answers (even though that is part of the reason), I really admire them. They debuted in 2008 and it has been 4 years. Having been around for so long, they still do not have any awards. It’s a pity because I can understand how heartbreaking it is to have worked so hard (in their case, overworking) and yet not have any fruits of labour. If I were them, I would definitely doubt myself and probably give up. Despite that, Ukiss still puts in utmost effort that can be seen in every performance, every fan meeting and every tweet. As a fan, I really feel quite horrible as they really do deserve much more. They aren’t doing anything wrong right? Their music is catchy, they can dance well, they have good looks and they are marketed well. Then why is it that they are not recognized? Back to the point, I really admire how they can be so positive. Even if they are not, they can make themselves seem positive. In every event, despite the physical signs that show they are tired (eye bags), they always seem to be smiling and having so much gratitude. Their humble actions, positive mindset and their bond with the members is what I admire best about Ukiss. An award may not seem important but it could be a good way for them to build their confidence. Especially since there has been instances where the members have harbored doubts in themselves. And also I hope that for the years to come, they will have more and more awesome songs and awards (because they deserve it SOOOO much). Oh, and I really think they should have a break. Look at how tired they look! They must be so deprived of sleep. Thanks Simon and Martina for being so supportive of Ukiss. Much loves from all the kissmes all over the world~ let’s continue supporting them, okay?

  359. Wow! What nice guys! They are so sweet.

  360. I love U-Kiss because they never give up in whatever they do. They work hard in achieving something in their life. Though they’ve gone through a hard time, they keep on working hard for their dreams. Even though U-Kiss never win on any show yet, they keep on giving their best in everything they do, be it by singing, acting or on variety shows, they entertain us. Sometimes I wish they can just have A LOT of rest but I do know the best thing I can do as a Kiss Me right now is just to support them all the way :)

    Secretlifeteenlover:: What I love most about UKISS is the diversity they all have. I mean, they come from different places, they know many different languages. I just think that is super amazing!!! KissMe hwaiting!! <3

  363. Wow. Where do I start? First off, I’d like to point out that no matter how many flashy groups fly by and steal away my attention, I’ve always come back to U-Kiss. They always find a way to fly back to number 1 because they just have that quality that draws you to them. From the beginning, U-Kiss’ history and their work ethic have been the determining factors. With Kevin fighting to get out of his unfair 10 year contract in XING, Eli’s struggles to live by himself in China and learn Korean when he came to Korea, Dongho being in such a tough occupation at such a young age, Kiseop’s depression Soohyun’s insecurity of his appearance not fitting the kpop standards, AJ trying get back into music after the dissolution of Paran and Hoon adapting to being in a group after being a solo artist (and Kibum and Alexander’s troubles too), U-Kiss as a group for me represents the fruits of hard work, determination, the strength of dreams and the value of strong friendship. This is a group that has worked so hard for so long and made something huge out of something small that was given to them. Sparkly awards don’t distinguish winners from losers because U-Kiss are doing what they love so they are already winners, no trophy needed. Despite being exhausted from their hectic schedule, they still find time and energy to interact with time, post messages and smile at all us fans. It’s this humility and passion for what they do that makes them shine in the sea of kpop groups and they are the reasons that I love U-Kiss.
    P.S Sorry for the essay. I have a lot of U-Kiss feelings. :)

  364. What I love about U-Kiss?… there are plenty and I think I’m going to right them ALL down. So I’m going to comment here not on youtube ^^

    First, U-Kiss for 4 years haven’t won in a Korean Music Show. But as you know, they are totally hardworking and just keep on going to reach their dream and goal. Not only for the music shows but their other dreams as well. They dedicate all their hardwork to KissMe and not only to the people supporting them but also to the people around the world. (Seriously, they are still underrated…)
    Second, they don’t complain and just do whatever they need to do to keep on track and do what they can to promote their music. Not many people can see that. U-Kiss keep on going and if something goes wrong, they will automatically fix that out.
    Third, U-Kiss, even though I haven’t met them yet or seen them in person, I can actually tell they are good guys and are dedicated for their work. I know you can tell because you’ve seen them. And if they did something wrong or a mistake, they’ll be saying sorry over and over for it. Even if it’s not their fault.
    Fourth, U-Kiss are disciplined people and they can handle things maturely. They think fast and far more off for the problem. Our leader, SooHyun did that during the time of Neverland (Kara incident). And I really adore him for that. He did well. That only shows that they are respectable people. (And if ever people say anything mean to them, we KissMes are here to back them up and support them. Of course not being mean to those idiots LMAO.)
    Fifth, they are seriously driving me nuts because of their talents. They are seriously good. SooHyun’s strong voice, Kevin’s angelic pleasant voice, Hoon’s soft melodic voice, Kiseop’s strong beat dancing, Dongho’s cute rapping, Eli’s 5% pigeon fast rapping and AJ’s awesome skill of multi-tasking rap and singing. I love that about them. And THEY DO NOT LIPSYNC… of course by my watching experiences, you can always hear panting and stuff when they are singing with matching dancing. Some people may find that disturbing, but I find it awesome and cool because you an totally see they are working hard and do not lipsync. It’s just pure awesome and lovely.
    Sixth, THEY LET ME SPAZZ EVERYTIME. Every post on twitter, performances, variety shows etc… I feel my heart beating and I love it. It sometimes let me cry because I love them so much I just want them to continue being happy. Everytime they do sexy things, I wanna die happily. ^^ ♥
    Seventh, THEY ARE ******* funny and ridiculous LMAO. It just makes me happy all the time. And seeing them happy, I feel happy too and I feel like my burdens going away.
    Now I do not want to number my reasons, it’s disturbing XDD
    They inspire me. They make me secretive LOL sometimes, buying their albums is a secret to my parents. kekeke…. They make me meet new people (of course KissMe) and share awesomeness with them. (spazzing)
    U-Kiss is just epic that I’m going to do my best to make them number one someday. I will show to different people that U-Kiss is going to be really reallllyy big someday. With the power of us KissMes, nothing can stop us to reach that goal. I will keep on supporting and loving them as I live.

    Actually, I have more but I’m just going to keep them to myself. I think you actually know why LOL. And my love for them doesn’t end here so S&M, this is not the end. MWAHAHAHAHAHA~

  365. I love U-kiss for so many reasons!!! They’re the first k-pop group who introduced me to K-pop and until now they’re still my favorite. I like their music ever since and it’s just getting better and better!! Gah they make me crazy with their looks, their moves, their voices their talent and most of all their PERSONALITY. I really fell in love with them when I started watching their shows besides their MVs and I instantly felt like I’m friends with them! even in twitter and even with other people’s comments haha I believe their really nice. Even if I haven’t seen them in personal it’s like I’m supporting my friends performing far away in Korea! wah supporting them is so worth it ,let alone just being a KissMe.Supporting them is like doing something to fulfill the dream of these HANDSOME, TALENTED and FRIENDLIEST idols :))) haha
    Segue: Kevin was also my bias because he’s the closest to my heart :)) I know there’s something different in him. He’s a good example :))

    WAAAAH ♥ I want to win~!
    What I like about U-kiss…

    Their group is combined with awesome singers. I just really don’t know why they don’t get too much attention. :( I really love U-kiss and I think they really deserve to have a number 1 rank in music charts. Their songs are definitely reaaaallly good. Yes, they face problems like when Alex and Kibum left the group, (ahuu T^T I miss them) but you can see them that “we’re here still here, we will still continue” like TVXQ~! They, U-kiss, are still working hard, with their new members and still they are producing a wonderful song, ballad, rnb, or dance song~ whatever genre it is. I really love them on-cam or off-cam. I just wished I’m one of their siblings. lol =)) Watching them in variety shows or even fancams, I already feel that I will really enjoy the day if there will be a given chance to spend time with them. I’m a fan of Kevin since his debut in the KPOP industry, since his Xing days~! and I’m really proud of him to where he is right now and he is still a down-to-earth person and I’m proud to be his fan. How he is in person Simon Oppa and Martina Eonnie? I’m really envy. T^T I’m happy for U-kiss to have their comeback~♥ I always anticipate their comeback because I believe and trust them that they’ll produce another wonderful music. U-Kiss Hwaiiiting! :D I love you and I hope I will be able to see you soon ♥ Thaaankk you ♥

  367. I’m so happy to see this interview!! I love U-Kiss and EYK!! :D

  368. My Youtube: Animeluver74

    This would probably be a paragraph since I love them so darn much. I love how UKISS works so hard for their fans and gives us different concepts in each MV that they perform. I love that even if they never win an award on those big music programs -why can’t they see how awesome and special they are- they still work hard and never give up, knowing that kisses are there for them no matter what. I love how they’re always cheerful and smile and don’t let anything bring them down. I love how genuine and unique they are aside from other groups. I’ve been listening to them since early this year and before I was a big fan or ELF of Super Junior. I love SUJU and all but UKISS has this presence that I love, that’s different from other groups. They never made me think that their next album would be worse, instead it gets better and better and so does their skill, performances and voice. It makes me cry when they don’t win. They are underrated and it saddens me that a lot can see how good they are. They are my ultimate group and I would LOVE to see them perform one day in the US (NYC if possible). I’m saving up for them to be my first concert ever if they ever come to NY. UKISS HWAITING!!!

  369. What I love about them is that they are the most hardworking people I’ve ever seen.And even though they don’t win they work even harder for us and give everything they’ve got to make us happy.They remain so grounded and they are complete dorks but we wouldn’t change them for anything!Also I love them because they brought so many people together and I’ve gained so many friends because of them.I will be forever grateful to them.I love them more than words can describe.I hope to meet them one day!

    I love U-Kiss because they are just so awesome and so humble about it. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say they are the reason I got into k-pop. Their music is catchy and makes me want to dance and sing a long (tho I’m terrible XD) and (at the risk of sounding cliche) when I listen to their music it’s like I can sit back and feel it (like when you blast the bass and it reverberates thru your body. They’re so genuine and silly and great. I love their music and personality

  371. …no Polish this time. I’m a little disappointed and sad :<

  372. GiWercia

    So sad that you didn’t made them speak in Polish T.T
    But still I am soo happy that you could go there and see everything and speak with them.

  373. They are really hardworking, they always do their best for their fans. They are so nice and close to their fans, it makes them special and unique. Also they are all talented and pasionnated; they put effort on every songs they do, I really appreciate how they work hard to make us, Kiss Me, happy, they really are the most hard-working k-pop band. U-KISS always makes me want to do my best too, they give me energy. U-KISS is an amazing band, with wonderful members, I will always support them~
    That’s why I love U-KISS ^o^

    Thank you Simon and Martina for the interview ;p Love from France ♥

  374. I love U-kiss because their music is amazing. They have gotten way better since their first video Not young. But I still liked them then. Whenever I have a rainy day I listen to their music and it brightens up my day. They always have a smile, that’s the best of them. I will always be a Kiss me <3

  375. I love that you guys got to go to the music video! It would absolutely incredible to see the real behind the scenes of a music video. To think that that much work goes into something that only lasts for a few minutes…amazing.

    I love the real dedication that U-Kiss has. They are, by far, the most underrated KPop group, in every entertainment aspect. They are so talented musically, visually, and choreographically, not to mention hilarious and kind, and to top it all off, they are brilliant role models. They are also true Hallyu stars, and have always acknowledged and catered to both their domestic and foreign fans. The fact they haven’t, YET, won first place in Korea, to me, means nothing, because they don’t need it. They have so many fans all over the world, and are still bringing out a wide range of music that is loved by so many. I just hope that one day their hard work can be recognised by a first place, just so they can have a break :)

      I also loved that they mentioned vampire movies in the interview :p

  377. Kevin seriously seems like the nicest guy ever XD I think he’s totally like got that adorable/fun little brother thing going for him lol.

  378. I can’t tell you how freakin excited I was to see this video :)
    Ive always really liked U-Kiss but ever since your first interview with them I LOVE them, they are just so nice.

  379. Wow my UKiss scence must have gone off. I was asleep and all of a sudden I woke up at 6:25am. A few seconds later I get a text from twitter saying S&M had uploaded the UKiss interview.. Super cool. ^^

  380. Mionachromator

    I love them because they don’t give up even though they lose. they just keep on getting better and better, i think, them losing has a positive outcome, they become stronger and they work even harder to reach their goal, they have this “will” to achieve. they inspire me to not give up. they are a good example for me. It doesn’t matter how famous they are, it matters on how they make an impact to their fans. not only through theirs songs but also with what they are going through. I love it how they still put on a smile on their faces even thought they our overwhelmingly exhausted. I love it when they interact with their fans with the feeling as if there’s no wall between even though we’re miles apart. Just seeing them on youtube and twitter makes me happy. Even though they don’t reply on our metion. I feel like they read them (over those girls who flood them..) There’s just a very different feeling when you’re a kiss me.~ i’ve been a shawol but the feeling si different. I feel the authenticity, even though i have never met them personally.. well i hope i do.. I think a facebook comment is not enought to explain why i like them so much haha

    well let’s see, what’s not to love about u-kiss. They are genuine, have amazing talent and can speak some pretty damn good english. But i mainly love how that, no matter if they don’t win any awards they keep trying their hardest anyways.

  382. U-Kiss are very hardworking. Mad respect.

  383. Username: LauraAmy1493

    I love U-KISS for the really down-to-Earth nature of each member has (both past and present). Each member has had a difficult road that they’ve travelled to get where they are and are great role models for all ages because of this.

    Also, because they’re not all from Korea they are able to connect with ALL fans with the numerous languages that all members have learnt. They provide really lovely fan service no matter where they go which truly shows how genuine they are for their good fortune.

    I wish them all the best in the future and hope that they find time to visit Australia.
    KissMe Fighting! ♥
