At the 2011 Asia Song Festival with UNICEF which was held in Daegu on the 15th, U-Kiss won Asia Influential Artist Award and gave performance with SNSD, Super Junior, Lee Seung Gi, and B2ST. The group is currently taking a hiatus due to its leader Soohyun’s vocal fold nodules. But, the group appeared and with Soohyun’s spirit and other members’ fluent language skills earned great feedback from the audience.
Soohyun began the performance by saying, “I’ll definitely perform even if I was going to collapse on stage.” His throat was not in good condition, but he sang three songs, anyway, including “Neverland.” After the performance, the group greeted its fans in three languages: English by Kevin, Chinese by Eli, and Japanese by Dongho. Fans complimented U-Kiss saying it is a “multinational” singing group.
U-Kiss has successfully closed its show at the festival and began its activities with the song “Someday.”
