birth of a family infinite

annadream  asked:

You seriously do these so well, they're so nice and thought-out and links to examples....I request one for Sungyeol. Because he's so wonderful but gets underestimated far too often. Please and thank you!

Okay, so I previously did Woohyun and Sunggyu, and now it’s my handsome and small son Sungyeol! Sungyeol often gets overlooked in INFINITE, and that is just not okay. So here are some reasons to show him more love, because he definitely deserves it!

1. ACTOR YEOL!

If there is one thing Sungyeol does amazingly well, it’s act. He has always had aspirations to be an actor, and was originally in the SM Acting Academy before he joined Woollim. He didn’t set out to be in an idol group, but aren’t we glad he ended up in INFINITE? Sungyeol has been in multiple dramas over the years, including Please Remember Princess, Hi-School Love On (alongside fellow member Woohyun) and D-Day

Also here is Yeol acting in a CF for a dog shelter, part of INFINITE’s appearance on Birth of a Family:

2. SUNGYEOL THE ENTERTAINER

It goes without saying that INFINITE wouldn’t be as successful on variety shows if it weren’t for members like Sungyeol. He has perfect comedy timing and has never minded throwing himself fully into skits and giving everything he has for hilarity - image? What image? Let’s never forget Sungyeol’s animal impressions, the infamous owl face, his hilarious dancing or the many, many times he’s gone all out for his solo stages (Troublemaker with Sungjong, PSY’s Daddy, ioi’s Pick Me).

And here is a personal favourite of mine, Sexy Back ft Hoya:

3. VOCAL IMPROVEMENT / HOW DOES HE DANCE WITH THOSE LIMBS?!

Although Sungyeol did not set out to be a singer, you would have to be totally ignorant not to notice what an improvement he has made vocally in the 7 years since debut. He has never been one to say he can sing, remaining humble about his skills and often even putting himself down. But it shows that he’s trained his voice when you listen to him on album tracks and during live performances. He may not get the most lines, but he often gets some of the most memorable ones in songs (”Do you hear me?” anyone???). Here is a compilation of some of his lines. Then there is the fact that Sungyeol can rap! Okay so he may not be as known for it as INFINITE H, but you can check out his skills in Cover Girl or watch this awesome clip of INFINITE switching parts for Be Mine. Sungyeol got Hoya and absolutely slayed it. 

INFINITE are a group well known for their synchronised dance skills. And Sungyeol being the tallest member definitely has to try that little bit harder to make sure he stays in line with the rest of them. He may not be a main dancer or be asked to do the dance break, but without him we wouldn’t have the perfect seven members that form INFINITE, and we also wouldn’t have the cool bit at the beginning of The Chaser where Yeol parts the others like the Red Sea… 

Also look how sexy he is…

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE!!

There are so many reasons to love Sungyeol, and here are a few more things I think are very important:

  • His love of animals! Sungyeol adopted a cute little hairless cat he named Jureumie (from the world for wrinkle), and although she has since moved in with one of Woollim’s staff, we got some super cute times with the two of them. He now has a dog called Aga (Baby). Sungyeol was also amazing with the three puppies INFINITE adopted on Birth of a Family
  • He lowkey does a lot of charity work. Sunggyu outed Sungyeol saying he actually does a lot of charity work, but he never likes to talk about it himself. 
  • His visuals are seriously no joke. Having seen INFINITE up close in real life (and accidentally at the airport one time) I can honestly confirm that Lee Sungyeol is one of the most gorgeous people I have ever seen, even with a facemask on and no makeup. 
  • Sungyeol loves INSPIRITS so much that he’s ready to chase us to the ends of the earth if we cheat on them. He also spoke about how it’s important to him to be able to communicate with all fans, and so he tried extra hard at foreign languages during their first world tour OGS. 
  • His friendships with the other members are very sweet, especially with Sunggyu and Myungsoo. Sunggyu often leans on Sungyeol or latches onto him at airports. And even though Sungyeol and Myungsoo admitted to fighting with each other before, they’re known to be very close. 

I legitimately love Sungyeol so much and it makes me upset when I see negative comments about him or hear that he’s not getting as much attention as he deserves. Please love Lee Sungyeol, because if you’re an INSPIRIT then he definitely already loves you!

More important videos to watch:

I hope you find this useful and please do love INFINITE a lot!!! 

The littlest things about INFINITE that made me emotional while watching Birth Of a Family

1. Like how Sungjong bonded with Coco, Nurungie and Tofu to the point everyone kept on looking for him when they needed to calm the dogs down or make them listen. And how even the puppies learned to bully Sungjong from watching other members I suppose. Sungjong still ran relentlessly after the puppies like a mom.

2. How Sungyeol, Woohyun, and Sungjong were upset when their puppies couldn’t be in the advertisement they shot. They defended their puppies’ acting skills and Sungjong even covered Coco’s eyes when they brought in a dog actor to act.

3. How much effort Myungsoo and the others put into building a dog house from scratch.

4. How the members called the puppies ‘kids’ and talked to them.

5. How upset the members all were when they heard that the puppies would be leaving.

6. How Sunggyu, who started out with being scared of dogs ended up giving them a shower and loving them.

7. How Sungjong’s voice broke every time he spoke about the puppies leaving.

anonymous asked:

Please explain to me this band "infinite"

No I did not just spend the whole day thinking on how to reply to this question

Turn out asking me this question is the same as asking me to make an essay. So if you’re seriously asking, beware of the long explanation (it’s 2358 words…) and this is probably not what you asked for…also beware of the english.

And also please note that most of these are my personal opinions on them, even though I’m trying to be objective

Basically, Infinite is a boy band from Korea. It was the first boy band from Woollim Entertainment, so the boy band was kind of experimental for them. They debuted on 2010 with Comeback Again. Since their company is very small on that time, they have to work their way up. They finally able to succeed after their first win with song “Be Mine”, after that they finally started to get really famous. To sum up their success: this used to be their dorm, but now they live in here. (I think that’s newest one, they moved dorm several times). If they didn’t win anything for Be Mine, they’re probably have been disbanded by the company.

They were famous for having very clean and synchronized dance/choreography. They are trying to not be as synchronized as before, but it’s like being synchronized with each other is already embedded in their bloods. Their music is also known for having a distinct sound and quite different from usual kpop music.If you like 80s music, it’s possible that you will like Infinite’s music. Honestly their music is not the kind who can appeal to everyone.

They are really good at performing, they almost always performing live even though they have a hard choreography, and they excel at it. Every single of them has their own talents. Even the maknae line, who people like to bash for having no talents (which is untrue), are really good.

Infinite’s personality as a whole is famous hardworking and well-mannered. They have been praised by staffs and seniors for those mannerisms. They’re close to each other, to the point the fans can get a daily dose of adorableness and skinship. Occasionally doing ‘dumb’ things, which is why I called them seven idiots. Lovingly, of course. Their personality is not always like what they are shown on TV, but we still can get a lot of glimpse of their personality from TV.

Recommended Songs + MV Performances (…okay, more like favorites of mine): Dashi DorawaBefore The DawnTic TocShotCan U SmileThe ChaserParadiseDestinyHysterieInceptionBackSonagi. If you have time you should listen to all their songs because almost all of them are good.

If you want to get to know their dynamic as a group on screen and their personality, I recommend watching these variety shows: Sesame PlayerBirth of A FamilyRanking KingThis is Infinite, also Weekly Idols

Infinite’s fans are called inspirit. To be an inspirit, you have to get used to those comments:

  • “Infinite songs are always sound the same.”
  • The maknae line are useless and don’t have any talents.
  • (insert people bringing up one of their 'scandals’, the scandals that usually has been resolved unlike a lot of scandals, and a lot of them are exaggerated)
  • That they get everything thanks to SM and that they don’t work hard
  • That they flop

Oh and also have to get ready for mistreatment from some broadcasting stations…

You also can read some of their interviews to get a glimpse of their personality off screen, most of the times they gave an insightful answers to the most basic questions: onetwo

So now for the members…
