After Hankyung’s leave, member Heechul became depressed especially. He lived in the same dorm as Hankyung and had a special relationship with him. He said, “I was in a big chaos. It was difficult for me to laugh on TV and dance on stage.” Afterwards, he did not go on stage including year-end award shows.
For 3 months, he lived in seclusion, locking his door. His only friends were two cats. Heechul revealed, “I had some lingering emotions. Since I didn't meet any people, depression got worse. I had lived with Hankyung, drank together and was really close. It was mentally difficult.”
His mind became comfortable after thinking, “when me and Hankyung do well we can meet each other.”
The happy virus of K-Pop, Jo Kwon! He always brings laughter and joy to those around him. “I was fearful because I didn’t know when I would be cut. I even suffered from depression during those eight years of training"
But he pushed through it and was able to rise above it. His determination and willpower is simply astounding and admirable.

"Before coming into U-KISS, I found my dream and had planned on following it.
But wherever I went, the companies wouldn’t pick me and I always failed.
I eventually gave up and went into 2 months of harsh Depression.
I thought a lot about the possibility of suicide"
"My mom…my mom was thinking of me and she cried herself to sleep.
I didn’t see my mom cry often. After watching her cry, I realized what I was doing…I was thinking about suicide and didn’t even go out to meet friends."
"But after seeing my mom cry and try to make me feel better, I got back up.
After that, I told myself I would work harder and never give up"
