Hoya yesterday decided not to renew with Woolim Entertainment and officially leave Infinite. After his departure news, Hoya wrote a letter to Infinite members and Inspirit (Infinite fans’ club name).

On 30 August, Hoya uploaded his Instagram with his hand-written message: “Hi, I am Hoya. First, I would like to apologise for causing trouble due to this surprising news and I would like to apologise to the fans who must be tired waiting for a long time.”

‘Although I wanted to personally tell everyone but the official statement should come first.” He continued: “I ask for your understanding for not able to tell everyone first at this long period.”

“I have worried a lot on how to convey my feelings. First of all, to my fellow Infinite members..To Sunggyu, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Sungyeol, Myungsoo and Sungjong, I would like to apologise and thank once again through this letter.”

‘I know very well that I am lacking in many ways but still received lots of love from Inspirit because I am with Infinite members. I will not forget this and will treasure the warm hearts of Inspirits’ Love. Thank you and sorry.”

Hoya then continued to thank Woolim Entertainment founder and staffs and stated: “Moving forward I will be modest and work hard. Really sorry for letting many of you worried about me. Thank you for reading this long letter.”

No matter is individual or group schedules, we wish Hoya and Infinite all the best!
