The famous band Infinite was formed in 2010 by Woollim Entertainment. From the very beginning they gained the attention. But it’s in 2011 that they definitely broke out and became very famous idols. Nowadays, their success cannot be denied any more, they have a lot of fans and are in competition with the biggest k-pop bands in the Korean music industry. Do we need to say that they have potential? We don’t think so as they definitely proved to everyone that they are talented. Infinite, it’s 7 guys and 7 charms! They are able to differentiate themselves from the others with their synchronized dances and their chorus which they always sing in harmony. Showing a different side in every album, challenging themselves and working hard to reach the expectations of their fans, Infinite is one of the greatest k-pop band for sure! They also have a lot of fans internationally and in Europe, they are clearly awaited. After being able to fill up a venue of 10 000 seats for their first concert in Seoul which was sold out in 10 minutes, we think they could clearly make a tour in Europe and other countries, don’t you think? We hope we will be able to help this dream come true!
Let’s present the 7 members now! First of all, we have the leader and main vocalist Sunggyu. What an artist! And what a man as well! Very charismatic, impressive with a splendid voice, a gaze which makes you melt every time he is looking at the camera, he is definitely one of a kind. He also has a charming bad temper, which gives him a plus! And of course, we cannot talk about Sunggyu without mentioning his solo album „Another me“ which is amazing and wonderful. The main rapper Dongwoo has a lot of charms too, he is a big idiot and his laugh is a pleasure to hear. He is described as a player but at least he is a discreet one. Anyway, this man is handsome, talented and funny. He is also totally weird sometimes but what a smile! He can rap really well but he can also sing amazingly. He also debuted in a subunit with his teammate and rapper Hoya as Infinite H. Their album is really good and they really deserve our attention. Then we have the other main vocalist Woohyun, he has a wonderful voice, no doubt about that. The mix between his voice and Sunggyu‘s voice is perfect. He is funny and smart. We particularly like his way to be manly and dorky at the same time. He can talk a lot and can use very charming words to get the attention. Hoya, who is the main dancer and the other rapper of the band, is a funny contradiction, he can be so arrogant and confident and on the other side, so cute and charming. He is able to surprise you in whatever he does and what a smile of course! He can dance very well, rap, sing, or should we say: what can’t this man do exactly?
Who do we have next? It’s Sungyeol, the very mysterious man. He has such a mysterious charm which is intriguing you from the first time you see him. He is quiet but his presence cannot be missed. He has a way to show himself without having to talk! It’s making us curious about him for sure! Let’s go to L now, he also has a mysterious look and he doesn’t talk that much either, but when he is saying something, it’s always surprising you. He is a very good charmer and can tell you the things that will make you fall for him directly. He is handsome and talented but he is also good at acting. That’s why he is featuring in a lot of music video but also acting in dramas. And last but not least, the maknae Sungjong, the feminine guy, with a lot of manners and a very cute side. It’s so funny to watch him act precious. With his sweet voice, he is definitely adding a plus to Infinite.
They first released a mini album called „First invasion“ in June 2010. But it was with their second mini album that the success started. „Evolution“ released in January 2011 is a good album especially with the song „Before the dawn“ which was a successful hit. Then they released their first full length album in July 2011 „over the top“ with the hit song „Be mine“. Afterwards, they released a repackage album „Paradise“ in September of the same year. They make their come back in May 2012 with a new mini album „Infinitize“, this one shows a clear evolution. It’s good, it’s fresh and of course, it got a lot of success. In 2012, they also did a lot of individual activities. We could enjoy the solo album of Kim Sunggyu and the debut album „Fligh high“ of the subunit Infinite H. They finally made their return not so long ago with a new mini album „New challenge“ in March 2013. They plan to release their first Japanese full length album in June 2013 as well. You can also read the album review of New challenge after this presentation.
Live, they are always impressive. They are able to take the stage with strength and charms. In interviews and during shows, they are really funny and natural, it’s always a pleasure to watch them. I am not sure that we have to ask that, but of course, let’s give them a lot of love and support! And we hope they will come to visit us in Europe very soon. Maybe if you raise your voices, they will hear us!
