U-KISS (Korean: 유키스; Japanese: ユーキス) is a South Korean boy band formed by NH Media in 2008. Their name is an acronym, standing for Ubiquitous Korean International Idol Super Star.[1] The group's current lineup is composed of Soohyun, Hoon, and Jun.[2]

Their breakthrough hit was "Man Man Ha Ni" (2009) from their EP ContiUKiss. They released their first full-length album, Only One, on February 3, 2010. In September 2011, U-KISS released their second full-length album, NEVERLAND. They made their formal debut in Japan in 2011, with the release of the single "Tick Tack".[3]  Their second Japanese single was "Forbidden Love", while their first Japanese full-length album was A Shared Dream (2012).

Since their debut, U-KISS has released three full-length albums, twelve mini-albums/EPs, one special mini-album (created for their fans), and various singles.

History

2008: Formation and Debut

U-KISS was formed as a six-member boy band in 2008. Kibum and Kevin were previously members of the boy band XING, but had left that group in early 2007. The other four members were all individually selected by NH Media through auditions.

U-KISS first performed on August 15, 2008, at Power of Atamix 08 in Japan. The group officially debuted in South Korea on August 28, with a live performance of their debut song, "Not Young", on Mnet.[2]  This was followed by the release of their first mini-album, New Generation (N-Generation), on September 3.

Although they were newcomers in the industry, U-KISS was considered for a Japan-Korea collaborative project. A Japanese entertainment company, Yashimoto Group, invested 150 billion KRW to groom U-KISS as an internationally known group.

The support of Filipino fans helped it stay on the Philippines' MYX Music Channel charts for more than a month.[20] The album also topped Hanteo Charts, Hot Tracks, Syn-nara Records, and Evan Records in just one day.[21] U-KISS then played in Malaysia, Mongolia, and Japan to promote the album.[22][23] U-KISS promoted the album in the Philippines through a series of mall shows, where they sold more than 1,000 copies in one day, breaking the record for the highest sales in a launch and earning a million pesos.[24] Due to its success, the group had their first major concert in the Philippines, "U-KISS First Kiss Tour in Manila".[25][26][27][28][29][30]

The show, as a part of the benefit project, was sponsored by famous Cambodians and was even attended by the Prime Minister of Cambodia, Hun Sen.[207][12][208]

On February 1, 2013, Soohyun and Kevin hosted a charity event for Jakarta after the heavy flooding in Indonesia. They auctioned 2 CDs, with which they interacted to raise the value, along with clothing that they'd worn. Two albums were auctioned live, with total proceeds of Rp3.500.000 (roughly US$350). The two members also held a press conference explaining why their showcase would be postponed to April. Along with the press conference, they also visited Pluit, where they held the charity session and interacted with kids who were affected by the flooding.[209][210][211]

On June 6, 2016, U-KISS revealed that a portion of the proceeds from their Stalker album sales would be donated to the Culture and Arts Education Division of AbleArt Center, which helps handicapped artists.[127][128]

Endorsements

U-KISS has appeared in numerous endorsement deals in Korea and Japan, both as a group and as individual members. Their group endorsements have included Vons Chicken,[212][213] JOFF sportswear,[214] Herbalife Nutrition,[215] Zoff eyewear,[216] CHIC-Smart electric scooters[157], and Huis Ten Bosch theme park.[177]

U-KISS was the first K-pop band to be featured on Sumitomo's Visa cards.[217] U-KISS also collaborated with Dresscode Inc to create special clothing for their Korean album, Only You.[218]
