The lads of U-KISS might not be able to date due to their busy schedules but have confessed their wish to have their own reel-life romances at the press conference of their Collage Tour Concert in Singapore. Held in the Hard Rock Hotel, members Hoon, Dongho, Eli, Kevin, AJ, Kiseop and Soohyun also shared their excitement on holding their maiden full-scale concert on our shores.
“I think it’s been a while since we’ve been in Singapore. Through Twitter, Facebook and everything, our Singaporean fans wanted us back and wanted a concert. Finally, we get to have a concert today and we’re so excited,” Kevin gushed.
AJ, who is currently studying in the prestigious Columbia University, recently re-joined the group. “It was really hard because AJ came back and we had to re-match our entire dance choreography,” shared the members, whose bantering showed that his time away from the group has not diminished the bond between them.
The members perked up when asked what sort of acting roles they hoped to play and Hoon, who starred in drama Holy Land with Dongho, shared that he would like to take on a romantic role as his previous drama had an all-male cast. Eli expressed, “I want to try comedy – (either) romantic comedy or comic acting parts.” Other members chimed in and agreed, saying that they would like to try their hand at romantic comedies as well. Leader Soohyun added, “I want to meet my love while fishing,” much to the amusement of his members. They added, “Nowadays he likes to go fishing in Korea.”
