{INTERVIEW} 110125 Infinite, “We Risked Our Lives For the ‘Scorpion Dance’ Group Dance”

“We’ll show you our infinite charms just like our name!”

The 7 membered idol group, Infinite (Sunggyu, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Hoya, Sungyeol, L, Sungjong), have secured their spot as ‘fierce rookies’ with their 2nd mini album.

Besides this mini album’s title song, ‘Before The Dawn (BTD)’, the sentimental pop-dance number, ‘CAN U SMILE’, ‘I Don’t Know’, ‘Voice of My Heart’, shows off high perfection that even if all of them were the title songs, there would be no regret. It is also being picked out as a masterpiece album by recent evaluations from specialists.

Infinite is fully showing their charms as they became more mature and stronger, especially with their fierce group dance called the ‘scorpion dance’.

The members that ate and slept at the practice room for 2 months while being completely attached to the choreography, got ready for the day that they would stand on stage. After debuting in June of last year, they concentrated on practicing and didn’t take a break besides the 5~6 hours of sleep.

With the cool name of ‘scorpion dance’ in the choreography for ‘BTD’, they didn’t think about their safety; with only the thought of risking it all on stage for their dance. If you watch their performances where they lift up their legs like a scorpion and spin in the middle of the stage, it’s to the point where you would think that they had wires attached.

There’s also a danger of hurting their bodies because it’s a movement in where they bend their bodies down and up, with only the hip strength picking up their whole body. For this, they had to create muscles and they lost weight while increasing their flexibility.

Following Hoya, who’s responsible for the dancing in the team, they concentrated on a much more difficult move than the last album’s. The choreography that caused blood [T/N: hard to do it], was able to see light and they created an amazing performance that even received suspicions of the screen being edited.

This album’s overall mood is ‘noir’. And in the ‘BTD’ music video, there are forceful movements and show off a fierce manliness with it.

Leader Sunggyu stated, “Our company’s CEO showed us many Hong Kong noir movies and told us to carefully look at each of the main character’s expressions and movements. He wanted us to learn manliness. We rewinded it numerous times and practiced it.”

The Infinite members are taking the second mini album as an opportunity. The album title means evolution ‘엘볼루션 (Evolution)’ and the reason they picked it was because of that. The main force was needed in completing the album, and Hoya and Dongwoo both made raps, which was put into the album.

Besides Sungyeol, who lost the most weight, the other members lost weight for their agile bodies, in order to lose the previous image of being friendly and cute. And they tried a 180 degree ‘chic’ transformation.

We look forward to the ‘7 people, 7 colors’, charm that each member has even if they’re all together. Besides Vocal Sunggyu and Dance Hoya, there’s the one in charge of reactions, beauty, charisma, height, and variety show skills and each charm becomes in balance with each other.

Woohyun has been garnering attention for lookin

Woohyun has been garnering attention for looking similar to Hyunbin. He posted a picture of himself wearing the sparkly training suit that a master crafter created in the recently finished, popular drama, SBS ‘Secret Garden’ and the responses were heated. Sungyeol, who is also actress, Yoon Yoosun’s nephew, also became famous for being a doppelganger of Yoo Ahin.

Sungjong, the blonde beauty terminator, who’s crossdressing looks like a doll,told us an unusual behind story about getting dolls to play with from a fan. Dongwoo also received a dinosaur doll for looking like a dinosaur. Also, the burning red hairstyle of Dongwoo and the blonde Sungjong, has a hidden meaning of the sun and the moon.

Infinite, who thinks meeting each other like this was destiny, has lived with each other for a year. Their goal for this year is to have their team in a firm position. The member’s willpower to do this is higher than ever. Sungjong revealed, “I want to win 1st place” and showed a cute wish like the magnae/youngest. A debut in Japan has also been planned.
