INFINITE's Hoya revealed his real name to be Lee Ho Dong, much to the pleasant surprise of Kang Ho Dong on 'Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education'!

The show's rep stated on the 11th, "Hoya will reveal his birth name for the first time through today's broadcast. His birth name Lee Ho Dong brought Kang Ho Dong to laughter, raising interest."


Although most fans know Hoya's real name to be Lee Ho Won, Hoya revealed that's not the name he was given at birth.


Kang Ho Dong pointed out to Hoya, "Our names Hoya-Ho Dong are similar", to which Hoya confessed, "To be honest, my birth name is not Lee Ho Won... Although it is known that [my birth name] is Lee Ho Won, to be honest, I changed my name to that. My original name is Lee Ho Dong... I changed my name because of Kang Ho Dong hyung nim." Kang Ho Dong seemed disappointed yet also found it hilarious that Hoya changed his name because of him, replying, "I am both happy and sad."


Stay tuned for the hilarious story behind his name change on the upcoming episode today at 11:20 PM KST!

So, all this time he lied to us? Hahahhaah, is he joking or what?

/confused/

With it being Hoya we may never know the truth. It could be that he really was born Ho Dong instead of Ho Won, but unless they release his birth certificate we will never be sure. He could have been joking, because that is a total Hoya thing to do. He also could be telling the truth because it is fairly common for Korean celebrities (all celebs really) to change their name before debut. Inspirits now have a "Hoya Paradox" if you will.
