NH Media announced the news, stating, "Dongho will be absent from team promotions starting with U-KISS' new album which will be released this month, and he will be putting a hold on his activities as a celebrity."

"Starting from the beginning of this year, Dongho's determination about being active as a celebrity weakened, and he has revealed that he doesn't believe his health condition and stamina fit well with the life of a singer... After a long discussion with his parents, we have decided to accept their decision... Dongho expressed that he wanted to live a normal life rather than that of a celebrity."

The agency concluded, "Although the decision of Dongho's leave from the group is one that causes harm to the team's activities, the members have all decided to accept this change as well... Although we feel burdened by the empty spot, the group will release a new album as scheduled as six members.'

It sad to see any member leave a group. Dongho will be missed I hope he gets better and makes it in whatever he wishes to do with his life. It would be nice if he would come back, I understand health is very important and should come first I wish him the very best. You will be missed and lots of love to you and your family Good luck to your future.

Can he still come back when he's okay and healed already? He's still young and U-Kiss is still going a long way. ;

He'll always be remembered by everyone who loved ukiss since debut. He'll always be missed and those who say it was stupid of him to leave, I respect his choices and I am sorry to see him go. He had health problems and everything in this entertainment world was killing him. The money he earned with his health on the line was spent all on medication. I wish the best for him and for people to leave him be when he returns to a normal life. Even though he wasn't my favorite member of ukiss, he'll always be in the members hearts and ;the fans. Annyeonghaseoyo. Best of luck in your new life! Saranghaeyo

Although it's sad to see Dongho leave U-KISS, as a KISSME, I will happily accept his decision, as long as he is happy. As a fan, all I want is for the idols I love and respect to be healthy and happy, and I will support any decision they make. Dongho is young, and he shouldn't be worrying about his health, and it's sad that the idol lifestyle has come to that.

Dongho, stay strong and be happy! True KISSME's will understand your decision, and only want you to be happy. That's all we want, for all of you!

Saranghae <3
