U-KISS AJ, who is currently studying at the Ivy League School Columbia University, has made the decision to continue his studies until graduation.
NH Media and AJ has recently come to an agreement for AJ to complete his studies at Columbia University before re-joining U-KISS and their group activities. His contract with NH Media has not been terminated, but AJ will require more time resulting in a longer absence from the music industry.
AJ stated, “It’s very difficult to keep up with activities as well as my studies and I know the company was under a lot of stress and pressure too. Being able to go to a good school, I feel strongly about completing my studies”.
AJ began his career by debuting in 2005 with the group PARAN, he then joined U-KISS, who debuted in 2008. It was revealed in 2012 that he would be attending Columbia University. As he began his studies, he took a short break from his group activities but returned for the group’s 3rd full-length album..
Although AJ showed his enthusiasm with composing songs during his spare time whilst studying, it was difficult to balance his time of studying in the U.S and activities in South Korea.
NH Media responded, “AJ has permission to make his studies a priority. This does not mean he is leaving U-KISS. He still has time remaining on his contract with us”.
U-KISS will be performing at the KyungNam Cultural Arts Centre for the 2015 Korea Drama Awards on October 6th. They recently charted no.2 with their 11th Japanese single “Stay Gold”.
