[NEWS] President of South East Asia of Universal Music Group International comment bout B2ST

[INTERVIEW] 110317 Infinite, Rise as ‘Total Idols’

A challenge to go to the top with their single “Nothing’s Over”—- It’s a promise that ‘it’s not over’

Putitng in a cheerful melody with lighthearted beats—- Modified the ‘angled group dancing’, became more flexible

Netherland’s representative soccer team changed the flow of soccer in the world during 1970. Using a tactic called ‘Orange Legion’, they had all offenses and defenses with a strong fitness background, causing people to give a name of ‘total soccer’.

It wasn’t just a coincidence that I thought of these people when I saw the group, Infinite. Even after debuting, they practice for over 10 hours and are idols who have the basic skills down. They garnered attention with a high level group choreography that would be hard for any group to do. Without any mistakes, they move with coordination. The name of ‘total idols’ wouldn’t be shamed by Infinite, who are willing to sacrifice anything for their group.

“We heard that there were many people who got injured trying to copy our dance, haha. I feel good to know that we looked cool to the point where people wanted to copy us. I also gained self-respect knowing that what we’re doing isn’t easy.” (Sunggyu) “It’s a choreography where teamwork is important. If one person stands out or falls behind, it immediately shows. We can’t be careless until we get off the stage.” (Hoya)

Infinite’s process is different from other groups. There wasn’t exactly a member who could represent their whole team at the beginning of the debut, so they had a hard time promoting. There wasn’t a member who towed the group like 2AM’s Jo Kwon or 2PM’s Nichkhun. Although every song they released like, “Come Back Again”, “She’s Back”, or “BTD”, became popular, the group’s popularity increased slowly.

“If I said we didn’t have any hardships, I would be lying. I also blamed myself, wondering if it was something that I as a leader, should have done. As I look back on it, I think it was an opportunity for our team to became closer with each other. We encouraged each other saying that we need to become one, and that we can do it.”(Sunggyu)

Infinite, who chose the slow steps of many people instead of the many fast steps of one person. The results from their perseverance began to show near the end of “BTD” promotions. The fans’ attention started to scatter around from just the team to individual members. They started to attach nicknames like ‘honey vocals’, ‘elementary schooler Yeol’, ‘Sangnam [T/N: Nickname for Hoya to say he’s the most masculine between other men]’ to the members. The fandom is growing to the point where the company needs to hire staff members to be in charge of them.

“If we went against other groups with our skills, we have the confidence to not lose. Each member has their own position and if we all do our part, I believe that there’s nothing we can’t do. We feel really touched when a member’s own name is called or if their own fan amount increases. Although it’s cliche, we only have the mind to do better.” (Sungyeol)

The title of Infinite’s recently revealed single is “Nothing’s Over”. It has the promise from the members that ‘it isn’t over’. The song has a lighthearted beat along with a cheerful melody. They also modified the ‘angled group dancing’. Although they focused on their flexibility, the team’s unique angle became more distinct. And the member’s desires have become higher than ever.

“Although the group choreography we did before was impressive, we received a lot of critiques that it was too unconventional. So we decided to focus on flexibility this time. This choreography is harder because each of us need to understand it in our own way. If the ‘angled group dancing’ was a multiple choice question, I think that the flexible dance is a short answer question.” (Hoya) “It’s a determination that this is the last. We always thought that we lacked 2%, but we’ve gained confidence that the lacking area has been filled. We’ll show you what ‘total idols’ really are.” (Dongwoo)
