Hello, this is INFINITE’s Nam Woohyun.
Following a spring full of sunshine and a hot and humid summer from all the rain, suddenly a fairly chilly October fall has found us. Since this is a season where fall leaves are blooming and falling, I too am writing this letter with the mindset of a blooming and falling leaf.
My contract with Woollim Entertainment, who has spent my youth with me for the past 14 years, from my teens to my twenties to my thirties, has ended, and we’ve decided to now support each other’s future paths.
Now that I’m moving to a new nest from the space that was like my second home, that always embraced me and gave me courage, and walked with me while holding my hand, my feelings are a bit complicated and I also think it’ll become a bit of a chilly fall of October 2022. Although I’m moving a bit further away from Woollim Entertainment, I want to say that our hearts are always faced towards each other. I want to say thank you and that you’ve worked hard to all of my Woollim family, who has been with me for the last 14 years, from my very first step.
I will repay my many fans, who have trusted and loved me up until now, with a variety of promotions.
Woollim Entertainment hwaiting! INSPIRIT [INFINITE’s fan club] I love you! Nam Woohyun hwaiting!
