Infinite debuted in 2010 and reached the peak in 2013 when their EP 'New Challenge' sold over 160,000 copies in South Korea alone. The group released their third studio album, 'Top Seed', in 2018. Currently in hiatus due to various members in the military and a number of members leaving the Woolim Entertainment including Dongwoo, Sungyeol, Sungkyu and L, it is not sure how many group activities Infinite will see in the future but with K-pop stars finishing their enlistment duties, it is a new beginning for Sungjong that fans are excited about.
