Although INFINITE is quite popular as a seven member male group, two members recently revealed that they were advised to quit the group on multiple occasions.
On a recent broadcast, members Woohyun and Dongwoo revealed that their company Woollim Entertainment had advised them to leave the group before they exploded in popularity. In response to the news that the two members were almost not part of INFINITE, netizens sighed a breath of relief that the two never departed but also added that if Woohyun and Dongwoo had quit then the group wouldn’t be at the level of popularity that they are at now.
During “INFINITE Show Time” the members played a game revealing each other’s unique experiences. During the game Sungkyu said “If you’ve ever been suggested to leave the group by the CEO fold one finger”, to which Dongwoo and Woohyun folded their fingers. Dongwoo revealed that he’s heard the suggestion on more than one occasion.
