It turns out the unconfirmed report about INFINITE-H’s comeback is true! Hoya and Dongwoo, the rapper duo from Woollim Entertainment’s INFINITE are indeed going to make a comeback soon.
Earlier in December last year, Korean media outlet OSEN exclusively reported that INFINITE H is expected to return to the Korean music scene with a new album in 2015. At that time, a spokesperson from Woollim Entertainment confirmed to Korean media outlet MBN Star that the duo will reveal their comeback plans during the “Brand New Music family concert” on 7th Dec 2014.
While fans were still speculating their comeback date, Woollim Entertainment dropped a surprise by releasing a new teaser image for INFINITE H’s comeback.
Dongwoo and Hoya, the rapper duo from Woollim Entertainment’s INFINITE emerged as the first sub-unit group out of 7-member idol group and the first-ever hip-hop unit under their talent agency. The sub-unit group made their debut with a mini album titled “Fly High” in Jan 2013. Most of the songs from their mini album, “Fly High” have topped various major music charts after the album was released and the album has even earned them the “Best Unit” award at 2013 SBS MTV Best of Best.
As seen in the new teaser image, Hoya and Dongwoo will make their comeback as a rapper duo on 26th Jan this year. No other details were given about their comeback but the new album will be titled “AMOO”.
