[Interview] Hoya is More Popular Because of ′Reply 1997′ Than Infinite
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.
