On the December 28th broadcast of tvN's 'Wednesday Food Talk', INFINITE's Sungjong appeared as one of the guests on the show to discuss the group's previous dorm neighborhood.


The topic of the day was the neighborhood of Mangwon-dong, located in the Mapo-gu district in Seoul. Sungjong began, "Since my trainee days, I lived in Mangwon-dong in the dorms there. From trainees to when we debuted up until about last year, I lived there. I lived there for quite a long time, and back then, it wasn't as developed of an area without as many people living there. [INFINITE] filmed about 4 reality programs in the neighborhood. I think the area became famous after that." 


When MC Jun Hyun Moo asked, "You think it was because of yourself [that the area became well-known]?" Sungjong didn't hesitate to reply, "Yes, a bit." 


He continued, "Fans in their teens and 20s came to Mangwon-dong for INFINITE, then stuck around to grab meals, etc..." Later on, Sungjong said, "They really need to give us an award over at Mangwon-dong. I'm proud of [this accomplishment]." 


We'll just say that Mangwon-dong really did become more developed thanks to INFINITE, Sungjong.

    Wow so many negative comments. I would not have know about the neighborhood without watching infinite's early reality shows. He's not taking full credit for its growth just saying that the group is part of the reason for the growth. I believe it too! Think about all the sasaengs and fangirls out there. It makes sense!

    Where's the lie? Yea the neighborhood was there long before Infinite but if you watch Infinite's older variety shows, you can see that it wasn't very developed. After Infinite, more people came to see the neighborhood because Infinite lived there and was often spotted there. So of course fans would flock to see their idols. So I would agree that Infinite having trained and lived there for so long (+ Infinite's iconic run down dorm that was demolished last year) as well as Infinite filming their variety shows there had a hand in boosting Mangwon-dong's popularity. And look at all these pathetic haters in the comments.
