INFINITE’s Hoya Talks About Troubled Relationship with His Father


INFINITE‘s Hoya has revealed a very personal information about him and his father at the filming of the MBC variety show, “Quiz to Change the World.”

At the taping for the variety show, INFINITE appeared as guests together with actor Lim Hyung Joon, gagman Shim Hyun Seop, singer Hong Jin Young, and Girl’s Day for a special episode featuring “Well-known Filial People.”

During the filming, Hoya revealed that he has a troubled relationship with his father.

“After I dropped out of high school without my parents’ knowledge, I stopped talking to my father,” Hoya revealed. Hoya, who was striving to enter a police university, started dreaming about being a singer when he was in his third year of middle school and then decided to drop out of high school.

“I didn’t have a good relationship with my father to begin with, and it got worse after I dropped out of high school. I didn’t contact him for eight years,” Hoya continued.

However, even with a sour relationship with his father, Hoya proved to be a filial son. “When I was younger, I thought we were well off because my parents bought me everything I asked for. But in fact, it was so hard and we had so many debts to the point that our house was being seized. When I began earning money, I started paying off our debts,” Hoya added.

“Quiz to Change the World” airs on July 26, 11:15 p.m. (KST)
