MV:

Infinite has been getting a lot of attention on this blog, what with the recent endeavors of Sungkyu’s solo work and the debut of Infinite H, and there’s no denying that they’re one of the top groups out there at the moment (or is that my bias speaking?).  BUT “Man in Love” displays a completely different side to Infinite than any of their most popular singles; a side that calls upon every ounce of their aegyo acting ability.  Can “Man in Love” live up to our high expectations?

First Impressions: Infinite H’s “Special Girl’

MV:

Wow Infinite is just ON FIRE these days and really establishing themselves as some of the most popular boys in the entire k-pop industry.  After winning the triple crown of music shows last year with their biggest hit so far “The Chaser“, Sung Kyu (the leader of Infinite) came out with his highly praised solo debut “60 Seconds“.  And now–NOW we have the highly anticipated debut of yet another Infinite sub group: Infinite H, which is composed of Hoya and Dongwoo, two extremely talented members best known for their dancing and rapping skillz.
