Former U-KISS Member Kiseop Announces Marriage With Letter To Fans


Former U-KISS member Kiseop will be tying the knot soon!

On August 1, he posted a handwritten letter on his Instagram along with a wedding photo of himself with his fiancée.

The letter reads:

Hello, this is Kiseop.

I’m writing this letter because I have something to announce to you all. You might feel surprised, but I’m writing this letter because I was able to meet the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.

She’s someone who is incredibly precious in my life. From now on, I want to be responsible for her happiness, for her who has constantly looked at just me for a long time. Therefore, I promised to marry her so that I can walk towards beautiful days with her. Just as I vowed to look towards the same place, I’ll become more humble and responsible.

Thank you [fans] for always loving and believing in me. I will never forget it, and I’ll live happily. I’ll return [fans’ love] with new challenges and a good image in the future. I’d appreciate it if you’d give us lots of blessings and support for the beautiful days that we will have together.

From, Kiseop.

According to news outlet TV Report, Kiseop will be tying the knot with rookie actress and model Jung Yuna on August 24. Comedian Kim Yong Myung will be hosting the wedding, and Huh Gak will sing the nuptial song.

He also told TV Report through a phone interview, “It’s not easy deciding to get married as a public service worker. I’m nervous, but I’m more excited for the days that we will have together in the future.”

Kiseop revealed that he met Jung Yuna, who was a trainee preparing to debut in a girl group at Kiseop’s former agency nhemg, after she starred in the music video of U-KISS’s fifth Japanese single “Distance…” He stated, “Jung Yuna and I were both born in 1991, so we were friends at first but naturally became a couple.”

He also expressed his gratitude towards the U-KISS members as he remarked, “When I first talked to the members, they took it really well and told me, ‘This is a blessing’ and ‘You can be confident.'”

On March 21, Kiseop enlisted in the military as a public service worker due to the worsening condition of his preexisting herniated disk. A few months later, nhemg announced on May 16 that the agency’s exclusive contracts with Eli and Kiseop have expired.

Congratulations to the lovely couple!

off topic question: can someone teach me how to embed an instagram post on LJ? i know you can not use the embedded code instagram gives you, so i tried with the 'insert media' with the link to the post but it did not show up. can someone enlighten me?

It should work with the insert media button, it just doesnt show up for the preview :-)
aures 1st-Aug-2019 09:55 am (UTC)
oh that's why! i tried the preview to check everything and it showed up empty so i thought i made another mistake so i decided to not include it and just link it as a source in stead
im still learning, i keep messing up >.< but i'm trying hard to remember it all
so thank you so much for replying, it's good to know i did the right thing but that it's just the preview that got me confused
thanks :D

Yeah! Also theres a bug that if you embed ig, it can happen that there is a lot of free space at the beginning of your post. Its a display fault within omona i think , so dont worry about it!

oh thanks for the heads up, thats really kind of you :D thanks for helping out

UKiss have so many married (ex-)members now, especially when you compare it to other boygroups that debuted around the same time. Kinda funny

Congrata to the couple, wishing them the best!

Congrats! Seeing U-Kiss Gattung married and having children makes me feel old 😢

But getting married during army service... Is she pregnant?
aures 1st-Aug-2019 11:07 am (UTC)
i was wondering about this, too
but maybe because kiseop enlisted in the military as a public service worker it's allowed? i mean, if he gets married on his days off, i think that is allowed? or maybe he asked permission? idk how this works though

edit; i looked it up just now, apparently you are allowed to get married whilst serving and it has never been prohibited. in NK, however, it seems you are not allowed but who actually knows right

i love how u-kiss have emerged as the marriage kings
cairistiona 1st-Aug-2019 06:21 pm (UTC)
i hope their marriage lasts!

also considering how much older eli & dongho's wives are/were than them, it's sweet these two are the same age and therefore got to be friends that way first

I'm Happy for him and she is really pretty. It's nice that they met first and became friends then it turned into something more :)
