u_kiss-20120607-003-rita

Tepatnya tanggal 15 Agustus 2008 di Jepang, tepatnya dalam acara POWER OF ATAMIX, U-KISS melakukan debut pertama mereka dengan single pertama yang berjudul “NOT YOUNG”.

U-KISS terdiri dari 7 members dan berada di bawah naungan NH Media. 2 dari member U-Kiss merupakan jebolan dari boyband XING, yaitu Kevin (Woo Sung Hyun) dan Kibum (Kim Ki Bum).
U-Kiss merupakan group yang mempunyai kemampuan berbahasa yang sangat baik. Nama U-Kiss bukan nama asal-asalan, tapi nama ini memiliki asal usul. Filosofi dari nama group ini yaitu: U = ubiquitous (ada dimana-mana) K = Korean I = international (idol) S = super S = star
Pada bulan Februari 2011, terjadi perombakan anggota, kali ini tidak hanya penambahan member melainkan  ada dua orang member yang harus keluar karena alasan tertentu. Kibum dan Alexander keluar dari grup, bukan karena keinginan mereka, melainkan karena keputusan dari NH Media sendiri.
Awalnya U-Kiss terdiri dari 6 orang tetapi saat album ke-3 akan rilis, NH Media mengumumkan akan ada member baru bernama Kiseop. Awalnya hal ini banyak mengundang tanya dan kontoversi, tapi KISSME bisa menerima keputusan tersebut melihat member lain menerima kehadiran Kiseop dengan ramah.
