His label NH EMG posted an official announcement on U-KISS's official fan cafe, stating: 

"Hello, this is NH EMG.
Our former label artist and U-KISS member Kevin's contract with NH EMG has come to an end this March of 2017. 
There is still a month's time until it officially ends, but we thought it would be right to let fans know in advance. 
We apologize to fans who always cheer U-KISS on, for delivering such unfortunate news.
Member Kevin has decided to walk a different path in order to fulfill his dreams, and the label and U-KISS have decided to respect his decision. 
He debuted as a member of U-KISS in 2008 and promoted as a trustworthy and reliable member of U-KISS from the beginning until now, for the last 9 years.
We have come to the decision to announce his departure from the label and U-KISS after a long discussion and a long time thinking on the matter, respecting Kevin's wishes.
The label plans on holding an official event with fans in Korea and Japan with the 6-member U-KISS for the last time. (A separate official notice will be posted.)
Please cheer on U-KISS and Kevin who will be going off on his own.
We are currently regrouping U-KISS as a 5-member group, and to show fans an unchanging, bright side, they plan on releasing a new album this year, as well as carrying out domestic and overseas promotions. 
We once again apologize for causing fans to worry, as well as delivering the news late, due to having considered the options for a long time.
Lastly, we ask fans to continue cheering on U-KISS and Kevin. Thank you."

Best of luck, Kevin!

Now Soohyun just leave already. Follow your debut mate. Get married next.

Disband already.

I think that anything more shocked me in ukiss since Alex leave,actually they are leaving one by one. One is married and had one kid and never talked about that until the kid was almost born... It's their life so we should respect it, right?But, sadly, I can't even say that i 'm not sad cause i am.I just hope that he can persue with his dream, him and the members who letf and of course the ones who are still going forward with the name of ukiss.

Oh well that's the end of that. Hope Kevin does well on his own. New starts don't have to be bad. He was very adorable on variety, so maybe he'll be leader in something new.

Avoid AllKpop for two days only to return and find this?? Oh well, I guess it was to be expected, I wonder what kind of plans he has for the future...

ruthysaechao hiroonakamura Thursday, March 2, 2017

Yup! They're big in Japan and practically everywhere else except Korea. It's a shame.

hiroonakamura xxxibyesor Friday, March 3, 2017

thanks for the info!

I used to stan this group really hard back in 2009 but after removing the two original members, I have to be honest...I lost interest. Kevin and Soohyun got great voice its a pity they were never given really good songs to showcase their talent. Goodluck Kevin! Thanks for singing "Finally" its such a beautiful song.
