I could have sworn that I possessed an accurate, up to the minute catalog of all the KPOP groups that were debuting and even planning to debut in the United States. I don’t know about all of you, but I didn’t see this one coming.

U-Kiss, an idol group that boasts members of diverse national backgrounds as well as diverse language skills, is set to debut in the United States in February. Their agency, NH Media, is currently in the process of selecting a ballad for the group that will be released as their single. With members Eli, Kevin, Alexander, and Kibum having studied in an English medium and a ballad single, their approach to the American market certainly is interesting.

I’ve always thought that U-Kiss was kind of mediocre and certainly nothing special on the Korean Idol scene but either way, congratulations and best of luck to U-Kiss!
