Infinite′s Dong Woo and Hoya got everyone nodding to the strength of hip-hop and boy units at its showcase for Infinite H, Infinite′s new hip-hop unit.

The members of the boy unit showed off how determined they were to stay alive in the upcoming idol unit war of 2013, saying that the biggest strength they have is that they "are men" in the flood of girl group units.

The two members talked about the issue at the press roundtable held on January 10 just before their showcase.

Hoya said, "We saw an article that it would be a unit war [this year]. Most of the units were from girl groups. We′re prepared to enjoy it rather than think of everything as competition. The biggest difference between us and them is in gender. We can perform in more powerful hip-hop music and performances than girl group units."

Dong Woo added, "If Infinite was mostly about charismatic dance sequences, Infinite H will aim to enjoy its time onstage and try to escape everyday life with its brand of charisma."

The two finished, "We′re here to make 2013 our year. Please show us your support."

In the showcase that followed, the two boys definitely showed that they knew how to use their boy charms, stealing the hearts of the many girls in the audience.

About the unit′s promotional single Special Girl, when asked by the day′s special MCs, the members said, "This song is for you," drawing excited screams from the audience.
