As you probably know, AJ has been taking time off from U-KISS to attend the prestigious Columbia University in New York. It was previously expected that the hiatus would not be too long as he had previously taken time off before but returned to promote with the group not too long after. However, fans grew more concerned as time went by and he didn't promote with the group. Now, it appears we have some closure.

On U-KISS' official fan cafe, a handwritten note by Jaeseop (AJ's real name) was shared. In the note, AJ stated that his contract with NH Media officially ended on August 29. He thanked fans for all the love and support given to him over the years and ended it by stating he will become a better musician and show everyone even better music in the future.

Okay, so here is my opinion... I am in tears, even though I think every KissMe expected this, and as a diehard U-Kiss fan since, well, forever, I figured this would happen... But as I see it now, my heart is broken and I am crying so so hard. The reason for this is because in the past, we have lost so many of our talented members. Kibum and Alexander, Dongho, and now our precious AJ. I feel like, now, it feels like every member of U-Kiss has this invisible limit, like one by one, each and every one the original members will leave in search for something else in the world, and soon we will be left with a shell of what used to be, members who are U-Kiss but not really U-Kiss. And this thought terrifies me and chills me to the bone, because I love my babies, I love how hard they have worked to be where they are today and I never, ever, want to lose another member. So love your bias if he is still in U-Kiss because I feel one day they might choose to leave... *cries*

Ah.. Not that surprising but still sad. I saw some videos of him performing with his uni's Korean Association or something, which show that he still enjoys performing. I wish him all the best.

Expected... but still, it's kinda sad. He's my bias in U-kiss. I hope he's doing well in his study and having fun with his university life.

It's probably not likely that he'll release more music tbh. Why else did he want to further his studies for? I'm not saying you can't have a passion for music as you seek further education, but he's going on the popular 'I'm going to further my education because my idol career isn't working out' route that many other idols have taken.
