Just thought I’d share this with you all to let you all know that I’m still here.
My dad was diagnosed with cancer, but we are keeping on, and I’m hoping to continue to update the site!
His profile currently lists his height as 178 cm (5′9″), which is an 8 cm increase since he was last recorded at 170 cm (5′6″) three years ago at the beginning of U-KISS’s debut.
Dongho explained, “At the time of my debut, I barely hit 170 cm. Because all of my hyungs were so tall, I actually had no choice but to add a bit more to my profile height and made it 173 cm. After each new album release, however, I began to grow bit by bit. I really grew to 173 cm between our promotions for ‘I’m Not Young‘ and ‘I Like You.’ Our company raised my profile height by 2 cm again, but by the time we were done promoting ‘Bingeul Bingeul‘, I was 175 cm. While preparing for ‘0330′, I checked my height and now I’m really 178 cm.”
He continued, “I’m working on both an acting and singing career now so it is a bit physically difficult, but I’m doing my best and learning a lot. I’ll make sure to show everyone my improvement and growth.”

On a recent appearance on the radio show SBS “Choi Hwajung Power Time,” Dongho was chosen by his members to be the one who talks on the phone the most. Dongho said, “I talk quite often with my seniors since appearing on a lot of variety shows and TV series.”
During his explanation, Dongho reveals the surprising fact that he is the owner of three cell phones. “I actually have three mobile phones: one for my close friends, one for work-related calls, and one for when I decide that I want to stay low so it’s a phone that even the rest of my group doesn’t know about.”
U-Kiss are currently promoting their latest mini-album “Bran New Kiss” with the title song “0330.”
On April 12th, U-KISS’s Dongho guested on SBS’s “Strong Heart” and shared a story of when he ran away from home.
During a particularly tumultuous time in his life, Dongho revealed that he had packed everything he owned into a big bag and left his home for… the bank. Despite his young age, Dongho explained, “I asked and found out that I had quite a lot under my name. I sold all of my stocks and ELS and withdrew everything I had in my account.”
At the mention of ELS, the studio began murmuring amongst themselves, clearly confused over what it was. Even Lee Seung Gi, known to be the smarter of the MCs, claimed to have heard it for the first time through Dongho.
To the amusement of the studio, Shindong asked, “Is it like an ARS?”
Dongho continued, “It’s not anything important. Anyway, I withdrew all of the cash and felt like I finally had the world back in my hands. I really regret not leaving home earlier.”
He revealed that he had chosen to go to Busan in order to see the ocean and had reserved a room at one of the top hotels in the city.
Moon Hee Jun cut him off and asked, “You know what an ELS is, but you don’t know that you can also see the ocean in Incheon as well?”
After much laughter, Dongho eventually concluded his story by stating that he had given up his plans of running away to Busan and left instead for his grandfather’s, who was also celebrating his 80th birthday.
Suddenly tearing up, he showed regret over his actions by stating, “What still gets me is that in all of the pictures from my grandfather’s 80th birthday, I’m not in any of them. It was such a joyful celebration for everyone, but my parents can be seen with their faces white with fear and forcing a smile for the camera. That really broke my heart.”

U-KISS’s Dongho recently stated that he wants to build a baseball park for Korea’s baseball fans.
The topic came about after Dongho made a comment about the effects of his unique role in MBC’s “Royal Family“. The idol said, “I’ve heard a lot of my friends and family say that I should treat them to great things since I’m the grandson of a chaebeol (Korean millionaire) [in the drama].”
He then revealed, “If I were really the grandson of a chaebeol, I would first build a baseball park for Korea’s baseball fans.”
Why a baseball park, you ask?
Dongho explained, “It’s because I thought of the hard time I had while playing baseball on KBS2TV’s ‘Invincible Baseball“. ..I always thought it would be good for baseball fans to play baseball comfortably whenever they wanted to in a good facility.”
The busy idol also lamented about not having time to go watch a baseball game and said, “I want to visit a baseball stadium and cheer for my favorite team.”

NH Media talked about a hilarious, if not slightly disturbing incident from U-KISS’s first comeback performance this week. It turns out that moments before the boys were to go on stage, Dongho’s clothes were discovered to be missing!
On April 2nd, representatives commented, “Right before the recording for Mnet’s ‘M! Countdown‘ on March 31st, Dongho’s pants were stolen, which caused a chaotic scene. Because it was an emergency, we had to contact the production center and ask them to quickly make his pants again. Fortunately, we were able to complete the recording on time.”
U-KISS’s upbeat ballad, “0330“, has been earning a fantastic response from the public and is doing excellently on the charts, proving that the group’s departure from auto-tune and hook songs is working in their favor.
“Bran New KISS” ranked first on album charts and is even receiving orders from overseas.
