Recently, INFINITE's Woohyun guested on Strong Heart and felt the need to explain why they all burst out crying with their relatively recent music wins (but doesn't like everybody cry when they win on those shows?). Apparently, they were so overjoyed because Woolim Entertainment's CEO promised them a new dorm if they ranked top 3 with their single "Be Mine" (which in my opinion was one of their less impressionable songs but whatever).
See, the CEO felt the need to house 12 of Woolim's trainees in his own home alone with him. According to Woohyun, the house was in pretty terrible condition consisting of problems like "heaters breaking down, or rain seeping into the house and causing the wall paper to peel, and pieces of cement to come off". Also, the quote that blew my mind: "There was no front entry way so even if they opened the door slightly, fans could peek into the whole house, which caused some problems when the members would be walking around in their underwear".
In. Their. Underwear.
Wtf are these boys doing walking around their CEO's house in their underwear? I bet it was the CEO's idea himself.
Did no one think to question why this (I assume) 50+ year old man living on his own insisted that 12 male trainees live with him in his house? Did INFINITE's parents not have any red flags come up when the CEO said "I would like you keep your sons with me. And no, you cannot visit as they'll be very busy with my training".
Because I know if I were CEO of anything, I would like to keep under-aged boys in my basement and have them dance and sing for me for money.
Speaking of under-aged boys: Boyfriend's MV teaser came out not too long ago.
That look on the girl's face and the creepiness of the hand gently stroking her cheek awkwardly at the most inefficient angle is about as disturbing as Woolim's CEO keeping 12 young trainee boys in his basement. Kwangmin, you're too young to be a creeper yet.
Surprisingly, this upcoming single was produced by Sweetune. So have high hopes, but be prepared to be disappointed with the execution.
PS. According to a rumour, Woolim's CEO actually made a similar promise to INFINITE before when they were promoting "Before the Dawn" (they only had to rank top 7 back then). Clearly, that never happened. And apparently this new dorm is not even ready for them to move into yet. They have just been told about their wondrous marble floors and bodyguards and elevators.
10 bucks says the CEO just builds up their hope from winning and then crushes them later with his lies so he may console them whilst they weep in their underpants.
What a sick man.
