I is for INFINITE!
I have a problem.
I didn’t think it was a problem until maybe last year.
There are hundreds of K-pop groups out there, and we all know who the big ones are. Of these big, super popular K-pop groups, even if I’m not a fan of them, I can always find something to make me like them or at least respect them.
I haven’t found that with INFINITE.
I would definitely consider INFINITE as one of those super popular groups. They aren’t at Big Bang/Super Junior level, but they are up there with MBLAQ and B2ST. They’ve been around for a while, and they have a lot of fans. Whenever an INFINITE music video comes out, my youtube and twitter feed explode with excitement.
Meanwhile I just sit here. Not excited.
Is there something about them that I’m missing? I’ve seen a lot of their music videos, and their sound just doesn’t do it for me. I like “Before that Dawn” and “Destiny,” but I didn’t like “The Chaser” or “Man in Love,” two songs and videos that everyone seemed to go crazy for.
Of course they have talent. Myungsoo is a great actor (and ridiculously handsome), and Sunggyu and Woohyun both have really great voices.Even Hoya made me fangirl a bit in “Destiny.” In general though, the videos and songs that they end up coming out with just don’t get me excited.
I’m not writing this post to hate on INFINITE, and my intention is absolutely NOT to offend them or any of their fans. I’m writing this to pose an honest and sincere question: What’s the big deal about INFINITE? If you are a fan of them, why? What makes them special? What am I missing? I really want to join in on the excitement with other Inspirits, but I still haven’t found a reason to yet.
