Kevin Woo

is a Korean American singer, currently a member and lead vocal (along with Shin Soohyun) of a seven-member South Korean boy band, U-KISS, formed by NH Media in 2008. Bandmates include Shin Soohyun, Lee Kiseop, Elison Kim, AJ, Hoon and Shin Dongho. Previous Members Include Alexander Lee Eusebio and Kim Kibum. The name of the group stands for Ubiquitous Korean International Idol Super Star.

Kevin Woo was born and raised in Danville, California, United States, living with his parents and older sister. He attended Monte Vista High School and was in the school choir. After auditioning in Korea during a holiday trip, he was chosen and thus decided to be a singer. At age 15, Woo then moved to South Korea with his mother and sister to pursue his dream.

Woo joined Arirang[4]'s radio show Pops in Seoul to host the 'All About You' segment alongside co-host Isak. Alexander later joined the duo in the hosting. Eli joined them as a new co-host in early 2010, replacing Isak.

 Kevin Woo, along with bandmate Alexander were also made regular casts for variety show "Star King" since April, and were both selected as new MCs for Arirang TV Global music show "The M-Wave" in early August.

Five members, Soohyun, Kibum, Kiseop, Dongho and Woo were announced to be part of drama I Am Legend, acting as a rock band. This marks their acting debut, where members get to show their musical talent by playing instruments they are good at. Woo will be playing the guitar. Fans have noted that they did not appear in the drama. However, no officials stood out to explain the issue.

  U-KISS has also starred in many variety shows over the years. Variety that are U-KISS centric includes "You Know U-Kiss", "All about U-Kiss", "U-Kiss' Vampire" and "Chef's Kiss"

Woo also sang Finally featuring Alexander, a song composed by Brave Brothers. As of March 17, U-Kiss' Kevin, Eli, and former member Alexander will no longer be MC's for Arirang's Radio School. With the group's loss of former members Alexander and Kibum, and the release of their upcoming 2011 album, Arirang has etched out Radio School, replacing it with an alternate program. Alexander tweeted his thanks on the 17th saying, "Thank u for all ya love & support @arirangpops segment! Learnt alot & had so much FUN w/ y'all~ Gonna miss y'all.. Love y'all!♥^-^"
