On March 2, NH EMG announced Kevin's upcoming departure from the group, and he's now personally left a letter for fans on his fan cafe. The letter reads as follows:
"Hello. My KissMe fans, who I love. This is Kevin.
I wanted to send my sincere heart to my fans, so I'm writing a letter like this.
Firstly, I want to say I'm sincerely sorry for the disappointing news to my fans, who must have been surprised.
I was able to make the most precious and happy memories after debuting with U-KISS, and due to KissMe's support, trust, and overwhelming love from beginning to end, I'm able to be where I am today. I'm only thankful and sorry to KissMe and the U-KISS members, who've always stayed by my side.
To come to this decision, I've spent a lot of sleepless nights, and I've spoken a lot to my agency as well as the members. I'm leaving my loving nest now in order to walk a new path, and I'm taking it step by step. I'm very hurt that I wasn't able to stay a U-KISS member until the end, and I will forever miss the moments I've had until now. I want to tell my fans that I'm thankful and sorry once again.
I plan to do my best with U-KISS promotions until late April. I will also always support the U-KISS members with all my heart. I hope our fans will not change the love they have for the U-KISS members, who are always doing their best.
I'll work hard to strengthen myself and mature in order to pay back the great love you've given to me unsparingly.
I ask for your encouragement and support in the future. I thank you, and I love you."
