KISS Members Profile

KISS (키스) were a South Korean ballad/R&B trio under the label J-Entercom. The lineup consisted of: Mini, Jini, and Umji. They debuted on November 26th, 2001 with the song “여자이니까 (Because I’m a Girl)”, which became a popular hit song. They disbanded later that same year due to “internal conflict”. In 2016, on episode 36 of “Two Yoo Project – Sugar Man”, the women reunited and revealed that they actually disbanded due to one of the members dating someone, which was prohibited by their label.
KISS is an acronym for “Korea International Super Star.”

A/N: 위키백과 (Korean Wikipedia) states that Umji was lead vocalist and Jini was main vocalist, but on Jini’s IG bio, she says “lead vocalist of KISS”, so it’s possible Korean Wikipedia was wrong about that. 

A/N #2 (updated!): A user has told me that Hari Won has never been in KISS, but has been in a 2012 predebut group of the same name. A Vietnamese article has confirmed this, so I decided to remove her from this profile.
