24K Adds Group Member And Member Kisu Set To Enlist In The Army
24K is currently preparing for a comeback, but ahead of that, there is quite a bit of important news for the fans to digest.
First and foremost, member Kisu will be enlisting to fulfill his mandatory military service. This doesn’t mean he is departing the group, but will enter the military and work hard in accordance with Korean law. The company statement released states that it was a surprise and certainly short notice, but Kisu was able to participate in the special solo track for 24U.
Secondly, a new member will be promoting with the team. Kiyong worked hard to add energy to the roster and participated in the making of their upcoming 8th mini album.
Finally, the group will be performing their title track at the 2018 Dream Concert stage on May 12, 2018. Following the promotions for their new album, 24K will be embarking on a new tour for fans; hitting New Zealand and Australia in July and Latin America and Europe in August.
See both the Korean and English versions of the statements below.
그동안 물심양면으로 24K를 성원해주시는 전 세계 24U 여러분에게 진심으로 감사드립니다.
오늘 공지는 멤버에 관한 내용입니다.
우선 새로운 멤버를 영입했습니다. 이름은 ‘기용’입니다.
그는 이번 앨범부터 참여하여 24U에게 멋진 모습 보여드릴 예정입니다.
앞으로 많은 성원을 부탁드립니다.
또 다른 멤버에 관한 아쉬운 소식이 있습니다.
그동안 24K-24U와 동고동락했던 기수가 나라의 부름을 받아 군에 입대할 예정입니다.
갑작스럽게 입영이 예정되어 많이 당황스러웠지만
대한민국 남자라면 누구든지 이행해야 하는 국방의 의무를 다하기 위해 흔쾌히 입대를 결정했습니다.
다행히 이번 앨범에는 참여하여 기수의 감성적인 목소리를 들을 수 있으며,
특별히 24U를 위해 기수의 스페셜 솔로곡도 수록하였습니다.
또한 메이크스타에 참여한 팬들을 위해 기수는 모든 것을 정상적으로 진행한 뒤 군에 입대할 예정입니다.
그리고 이번 앨범의 타이틀곡은 12일 서울 상암 월드컵 경기장에서 있을 드림콘서트에서 첫 공개를 할 예정이며,
뮤직비디오와 전체 음원공개는 추후 일정에 따라 진행될 예정입니다.
24K와 조은엔터테인먼트는 이번 앨범 활동이 끝나는대로
7월 뉴질랜드 호주, 8월 유럽과 중남미 등 전 세계 투어공연을 펼치며
24U 여러분들 곁으로 좀더 가까이 다가갈 계획입니다.
투어공연 등 자세한 일정은 추후 확정 되는대로 다시 공지해 드리겠습니다.
