Infinite′s Hoya is happy that more people recognize him following his feats on the tvN drama Reply 1997, but the newfound popularity does seem to have its drawbacks.

In a recent interview with enews, Hoya, who is currently promoting with fellow member Dong Woo as the unit Infinite H, said, "More people recognize me thanks to Reply 1997, but now I have a new, small concern."

He added, "Not only do the older fans recognize me, but also do the aged whenever I perform for Immortal Song. Most of them, however, recognize me not as Hoya, but as Kang Jun Hee. They don′t realize that I′m a member of Infinite and that I′m a singer. They can′t seem to connect the role to me."

Hoya appeared in Reply 1997 as Yoon Jae (Seo In Guk)′s best friend.

Infinite H, Infinite′s hip-hop duo unit, recently released its new album Sky High.
