"Flops?" Old school K-pop fans become angered as new K-pop fans disrespect INFINITE after Hoya appeared on 'Street Man Fighter'

AKP STAFF

INFINITE's Hoya made the final cut on the 'Street Man Fighter' prologue show 'Be Ambitious' and has been competing on the Mnet dance competition show.

Since the popularity of the show, Hoya has been garnering attention as he is an idol dancer on the show. As more and more people are gathering their attention to the show, K-pop fans of the new generation are also focusing on Hoya.

Unfortunately, some new generation K-pop fans are making rude statements asking if INFINITE were flops and who the group is.

Translation: Guys what tier was INFINITE? I was wondering why Lee Ho Won is (Hoya) an idol on 'Street Man Fighter,' but he said he is an idol called INFINITE. They don't even have 500,000 followers; what tier were they in? Do you know which idol you could compare them to today? Were they popular? Why is an idol on 'Street Man Fighter???"


Old-school K-pop fans came to the group's defense saying that INFINITE was actually in the first tier of popularity and was one of the most popular groups from the second generation.

Netizens commented, "1st tier. You guys don't know INFINITE?" "They were 1st tier from the 2.5 generation," "They were the 1st tier. It was either B2ST or INFINITE," "I'm shocked they don't know INFINITE," and "They don't know INFINITE..."

Many 2nd generation fans were angered as the new generation of K-pop fans were saying rude comments about INFINITE. These fans commented, "INFINITE was not a flop," "These new generation K-pop fans are so rude," "They were the top tier from the 2.5 generation aren't they?? They had so many hit songs such as 'Chaser' around 2010," "In my time, the miracle of the small-mid-sized companies were INFINITE, B2ST, and Teen Top," "INFINITE has so many hit songs," and "How can INFINITE be called a flop??"
