I don’t know if many noticed, but I have been m.i.a recently and I had to deal with a lot of personal problems and had some hardships of my own. But, that doesn’t mean I didn’t check up frequently about Infinite.
As many of you have seen by now through many K-Pop news sites, Howon did depart from Infinite. I’m pretty sure you’re upset; I am too. Being an Inspirit for so long and holding on how Infinite’s name means limitless and neverending, it did break my heart to hear that news.
However, that won’t stop me from supporting Infinite as 6 and Howon starting his new career into acting and whatever else he will do in the future. The members respected his choice and I believe that we should too.
I am sure that his choices weren’t meant to hurt any of his members, or any of the Inspirits. I said this every year and I will continue to say this, but as a fan, I will always be behind the members wherever they go and what they choose to do.
A person’s dreams and ventures to a new path shouldn’t be put to a halt because they’re afraid the ones they love will leave them; they should be walking on with the belief that whatever they do, there will always be a person behind them to support them and cheer them through any endeavor.
INFINITE’s name means “limitless”; so we shouldn’t think of Howon leaving in a hurtful, sad way, but think of it as another way to continue that name; to continue being limitless. I hope that none of you see Howon’s decision with a bad light and I hope you continue to support Infinite and Lee Howon on a new chapter.
