INFINITE + SPIRIT = INSPIRIT ∞

[interview] japanese magazine k-boys’ interview w/ infinite

infiniteupdates:

*They were interviewed during BTD times

—-

After debuting last June, they’ve finally started promotions in Japan!

They are a 7 membered boy group who will continue to evolve “infinitely”, just like their name.

INFINITE, who released their 2nd mini album this January. We listened at their practice room about their trendy dance and how they feel after debuting.

BTD’s “scorpion dance” is a trend right now. It’s a difficult move, but was it easy for you to do?

[Sunggyu] After learning it, I tried it and I did it right then.

[Sungyeol] I couldn’t do it.

[L] It took me some time before I could do it as well.

[Sunggyu] There were members who could do it instantly and members that too 2~3 days. We needed about 1~2 weeks for all of us to match it with the music.

Is there a member whose style or personality changed a lot since debuting?

[Sunggyu] We think of it as growing. We haven’t changed for the worse.. Before this, we weren’t thorough with taking care of ourselves. Now it has become possible for us to take care of ourselves.

[Woohyun] It’s become possible for us to take care of our outer looks and images. Before this, we didn’t care about it at all.

[Sunggyu] Before our debut, I used to wear slippers when going to somewhere close. I don’t think it’s a bad thing that we take care of our images now. Since it’s taking care of yourself.

Then the person who changed the most is?

(Everyone looks at Woohyun)

Is it Woohyun-sshi?

[Sunggyu] His personality has changed to a more active one. Although his personality used to be active, his playfulness also started to increase.

Then contrary to that, which member changed the least?

[Sunggyu] I thought everyone changed.. Who didn’t change?

[Dongwoo] I think it’s this person… (Looks at Woohyun)

[Sunggyu] Really? Didn’t he get cooler? I don’t think there’s anyone who didn’t change.

[Dongwoo] Rather than change, I think we’ve evolved.

[Sungjong] Yup, we evolved!
