{INTERVIEW} 121115 – STAR COLUMN: INFINITE 2nd SECTION. Hoya, L changed (Part 2)

Hoya is filming ‘Reply 1997’ right now. The alumni reunion scene that made us wonder who Sung Siwon’s husband is!

◆1991 born Lee Howon experiences ‘1997’

Returning to 1997 was more interesting than I had thought. Although it is a totally different generation, because I was interested in it from before I looked it up on the internet and studied it. It is also true that I worried a lot because I had to act with hyungs like Eun Jiwon senior who have a large age gap with me. But actually starting filming and talking with them, there were absolutely no uncomfortable things. I actually treated them so comfortably that it was to the point where people around me would worry and ask “Can you really do that?” Hahaha.

{INTERVIEW} 111001 INFINITE shudders as they compare their old dorm to their new one

Earlier this week, INFINITE‘s Woohyun revealed the story behind their old dorm, and shared some details about their new place on SBS‘s ‘Strong Heart’. On September 30th, additional info was released by the members during an interview backstage at ‘Music Bank’.

After achieving their 1st win, the members were finally granted a new dorm by the CEO of Woollim Entertainment. The boys made their move on Sunday, September 25th to Joosang Bok Hap Apartments. When asked about their new dorm, the members didn’t hesitate in sharing their feelings.

According to the members, the new spacious dorm consists of 3 rooms and 2 bathrooms. The roommate assignments are Sunggyu and Woohyun, and Hoya and Sungjong. While those four get the smaller rooms, Dongwoo, Sungyeol, and L, have to share the big room with their manager.

Woohyun expressed, “Everything has gotten better. The old dorm is on the level of a haunted house if you compared it to the new one. The walls are soundproof so we can listen to all the music we want and practice.” Sungyeol revealed, “To preserve the cleanliness of our room, we decided to throw away everything [that was] on the floor.” Dongwoo added, “We didn’t have a closet in our old dorm, but here we have a built-in closet, so it’s easy to organize.”

We’ll think of this as a fresh start and work hard,” said L.

Although it’s almost been a week since they moved in, the members confessed that they still haven’t been able to unpack everything. With their jam-packed schedule, they’ve been unpacking little by little each day. Hoya explained, “It has now started to take the form of a home, but there is still a lot to organize.”

Hilariously, a few of the members passionately declared that they would never go back to their old dorm. Sungjong expressed, “Whenever we leave our house now, we can see the old dorm [along the way]. I pledged never to go back there again.” Sunggyu said, “Even though we lived in our old dorm for 3 years, I have no lingering affections for that place. I have zero attachment to it. I never want to go back. Also, even though we were able to move dorms, there are still a lot of other things we have to change, such as our car. We still have a long way to go.”

INFINITE is currently in the midst of promoting their 1st repackaged album. With their title track, “Paradise”, they’ve been sweeping both the digital and physical album sales charts, as well as becoming the #1 searched term on various portal sites and reaching #1 on Olleh Music‘s ‘Social Chart‘.
