Another former member of U-KISS has started his own family!
Kibum, who is also known as the younger brother of SS501’s Kim Hyung Jun, debuted with U-KISS in 2008 and left the group in 2011. He is currently working as a businessman under the name Allen Kim.
On January 30, it was reported that he has gotten married to a Japanese businesswoman and welcomed their first son on January 18.
Following the reports, he took to Instagram to confirm the news and share photos.
His post reads as follows:
Hello, this is Allen Kim.
I wanted to message the news first to all of you who have given me lots of love and still support me, but I ask for your understanding about my late greetings as there was a lot going on.
I feel thankful to now have a family to protect that is a new driving force of my life and business, for which my hard work has been paying off.
My wife is an ordinary woman who is working hard on business in Japan.
I hope you will all view us positively with understanding, and I would be thankful if you will be understanding so that you are not surprised or have hard times because of them.
And I feel regretful that I was unable to share this surprising news first with the fans who support me whether I am being reckless, having difficult and painful times, or am filled with happiness.
Even if I continue on the road as a businessman, I will not forget the great love you have given me with whatever I have done at any time and any place. I will always live while cherishing our memories made together.
I will be Allen Kim who, throughout my entire lifetime, can give back for the kindness I have received.
I ask for your strong support.
