Some Thoughts on Hoya's Departure
wow it has certainly been a week to remember. I've been fortunate enough to meet Hoya more and once and actually get a chance to talk with him one and one, and I dont think you need me to tell you this but he's an angel. (thats my red hair in the background behind hoya haha) Performing and creating music and choreography, as well as just entertainment in general, is what this boy was born to do. When you meet him you feel this immediate calm come over you and there is no idol-fan barrier. He's completely humble and seems almost as nervous/excited to meet people as they are to meet him. the pictures on this card are from their secret show in NYC where MTV gave me a staff badge and let me hang out backstage. Hoya was the only one who really came down and hung out with the people waiting there (like me, or the people from dramafever, or the people from mtv) and chatted with us. Sunggyu also lurked lol but he was clearly super shy - Hoya was like OKAY GUYS IM GOING TO GO SPEAK ENGLISH WITH THESE PEOPLE WATCH ME. I met him again at Dongwoo's family's restaurant where, again, it felt like seeing an old friend. I also got to talk to him at Simply Kpop where he randomly asked me where I was from (and I think this is because he saw a very small group of foreigners and wanted them to feel included since the show was all in Korean, so he switched to English for a short second. Even though it was only for a moment I know we all really appreciated it!) Below are two of my stories if you'd like to hear more: Basically, I just want to stress that Hoya is such a kind and loving soul. I'm sure the boys will not hold any resentment towards him for leaving, and I hope none of the fans do either. He's following his dream and fulfilling his promise to show us the best Hoya/Howon that he can! Good luck in the future Hoya, and stay strong INSPIRITS!
Hoya Likes a Fan's Comment About His Departure :3
Hoya recently liked a fan's comment on his post about him leaving Infinite, and its so lovely. If I could express myself more clearly in words, this is exactly what I would have wanted to say. Thank you to this Korean Inspirit for putting it so clearly :) "Hi, Ho Won. No actually, I want to call you INFINITE's Hoya for this moment. 6 years have already passed since I started liking you guys. Thank you for making me like you for a long time. You might think you were loved because it was 7 but I can assure that you can be loved on your own. I cried a lot today but I suddenly realized. You said this is your dream. As a fan, all I have to offer is encouragement, not tears. You must've worried about it a lot. I know you worried about us the most. But I think I'm okay. I don't think you have to worry. We're not parting ways forever. We can no longer call you INFINITE's Hoya but you'll be next to our side as Lee Ho Won. I'm not going to be sad anymore. I'm trying not to cry. I've never imagined INFINITE as 6 members and it'll take time but I'm going to try to slowly adjust to it. But that doesn't mean I'm going to forget you. You definitely deserve to be loved. I'll be cheering you on from the back so you can do everything you wish to do. I love you. And I'm sorry. I feel like I didn't do good enough for you. I'm so thankful that I came to like you! I miss you Ho Won." We'll always be cheering for you Hoya, Ho Won, whoever you choose to be!
Hoya Will No Longer Be a Member of Infinite
excuse me while i pick my jaw up off the floor. WHAT. I am seriously so in shock right now. “First we would like to thank all the fans who truly love Infinite. We would like to issue an official statement on the issue of INFINITE’s contract renweal.” Hoya’s (Lee Ho Won) exclusive contract with the company has expired as of June 9 2017 and his contract with us is officially over. We are sorry to bring such news to adoring fans who always support us. In June during discussion of contract renewal, Hoya stated that he wished to walk a different path in order to realize his dream and the company as well as his members decided to respect his decision. Since it is a very big decision we gave it much time for thought and discussion. Until we decided that Hoya will be withdrawing from INFINITE and leaving Woollim as per his wish. All other members of INFINITE have renewed their contract and are already preparing to continue their career as a 6 member group. We hope you support them in their group and individual activities. INFINITE members will do their best for those of you who love them and support them constantly. We ill return with better music and activities. We are sincerely sorry to have worried fans with a delayed announcement but we were forced to be very prudent in our decision making since this is a sensitive matter. Finally we would ask that fans support both the new 6 member INFINITE as well as Hoya in their activities, thank you. – Woollim Entertainment I will make a card about this later I think but I'm actually speechless.
6 member Infinite photos
Woollim updated their site for Infinite and now have photos of just the Six Members. Updated profiles as well, SungKyu (Glad to see you healthy Gyu) DongWoo (Never thought black hair would look this good on him. Damn I've been so used to other colours.) WooHyun, (crazy side note, but don't his feet look big like hobbit feet? haahaha just at first glance! I love you Woohyun!) SungYeol (Hello orignial bias. I may be wavering in my Infinite bias again... crap) L (and how are you still not just a model?) SungJong (Jongie and that long hair though!!!! *get a hair cut, but not too short cause I still love this* So we have 5 vocals and 1 rapper now. I'm ready for and Infinite comeback now. They be teasing us with new profile photos... rude! if you missed it but the guys went on Vlive after shooting these photos. I thought I saw Woohyuns feet but I wasn't sure, these photos confirm that thought! (vlive broadcast) In their vlive they talk about a comeback planned, no specific date only that they are in the studio recording, probably rerecording the parts that were Hoya's, but happy thoughts guys! L has been doing fan signs after his drama and Gyu is beginning his fan signs. Dongwoo and Yeolie have been working out. Woohyun has gained a lil weight and he looks good, *you can't tell from his photo casue they photo shopped his face* but Woohyun said he has been cooking at home a lot and eating lots of rice and dumplings. Sungjong kept getting teased for having such long hair and side burns, I love his long hair though. And he eventually got a hair cut after the broadcast. I LOVE INFINITE AND HOW SWEET THEY ALL ARE TO EACH OTHER. YOU CAN SEE HOW THEIR LIVES HAVE CHANGED AND THEY ARE DOING EVERYTHING FOR THEIR FANS. WE JUST HAVE TO STAY BRIGHT AND SUPPORT OUR GUYS ALONG WITH HOYA, HE IS STILL INFINITE.

Hoya's Letter To Everyone
We all know how yesterday has affected us. In all honesty I was a crying mess. It is going to take a while before I'm no longer numb. But Hoya has reached out and posted on his Instagram this hand written message, this is it translated, *credit to iinfinite on instagram for taking the time to translate this.* I have read this, and reread this many times. Each time has brought tears to my eyes. But I want every Inspirit to know, I am not giving up on Hoya. I am not giving up on Infinite. As a 6 member group they are still Infinite and I look forward to their comeback at the end of the year. As a solo artist or dancer I wait in anticipation for what Hoya gives us next. They are still my bias group and my family and I am going to stay a proud Inspirit fan for the rest of my life. Again lets send all the good vibes and best thoughts to all 7 of them because each of them needs it.
