Infinite Sungyeol, who is set to enlist early next week, revealed his short hair and a handwritten letter to fans on social media.
Infinite member Sungyeol showed off his new short hairstyle in a picture he posted on social media on Friday. His new short locks, a hairstyle that is mandatory for all soldiers, signals that it is almost time for the singer to enlist in the military.
Enlistment can be a difficult time for celebrities who are forced to put their careers on hold and their fans for the same reason. Understanding this, Sungyeol posted a handwritten letter alongside the photo of himself.
In the touching letter, the singer talked about debuting, the creation of the group’s fandom name, and the memories they created together. “It’s been nine years since I made my debut in 2010 and met you all under the name ‘Infinite,” he wrote. “We’ve been through a lot, haven’t we? The day we got our “Inspirit” name, the day of our first fan meeting, the first time we ranked no.1 on a music show, and my first solo concert,” he reminisced, “I had so many memories!”
“I’ll take these happy memories that I made with you all, and I’ll keep them in my heart,” Sungyeol wrote. “Thank you so much for being with Infinite this whole time, and I love you. I’ll be healthy and will return.”
The singer will go through basic training for five weeks before being assigned a permanent position for at least the next year and a half.
Kang Sung-Hoon has finally opened up about all rumors and apologized in a long, handwritten letter.
Sechs Kies member Kang Sung-Hoon recently took to his personal fan cafe ‘Hoony World’ and posted a 8-page long handwritten letter. In the letter, the singer addressed all events and issues, including the cancellation of his fan meeting in Taiwan, as well as the rumors that he is having a personal relationship with the moderator of Hoony World.
The following is the letter from Kang Sung-Hoon:
Hello, this is Kang Sung-Hoon. I apologize for taking so long to write back to all my fans, who have nothing but supported and trusted me until now. A lot of things and events happened in the past month, and I know how hard it has been hard for both me and my trusting fans to take it all in every day.
First of all, I would like to sincerely apologize to my fans, who should be reading this letter right now, and the people who have paid much attention to me. I’m sorry for causing such an uproar with past events and rumors.
I want to make sure that my sincerity will not be distorted in any way, so I will deliver my apology in the most natural way that I’ve always used to express my feelings until now. I hope there is no more misunderstanding, so please keep an open mind and don’t read between the lines.
I’m also afraid that this letter will spread to places other than the one we share (Hoony World), but because I’m only addressing the people I care the most about, I’ll write with comfort.
I know I asked you to give me some time, but I apologize for taking too long.
I’ve read every single comment that you guys wrote. After reading those comments, I kept on writing and deleting many letters, and I kept thinking about what is the best way to deliver my apology. I hesitated because I worried that no one would believe me no matter what I had to say. Because of that, I took a lot longer than I expected, and I truly apologize.
To be honest, no matter what I write, it won’t describe the exact emotions and thoughts I have at the moment. However, it would have been very selfish of me to just keep you guys waiting, so I’ve finally gathered up the courage to write the letter.
After a long wait, we miraculously met again.
Because it took so long for us to get here again, I wanted it to last forever. However, it’s only been 3 years before you had to encounter these unfortunate events. I know it’s all you guys who made it possible for Sechs Kies to get back together and feel this undeserving love. I’m so thankful for each and one of you.
It was up to me to keep up with the relationship that you have granted me, and I should have paid more attention to the words you’ve said to me and the advice you’ve given to me. Now that I look back at it, I feel so much regret. And of course, nothing will change no matter how regretful I am right now. I never meant for any of this to happen, but that probably sounds like another excuse to you. At the moment, I still worry that some of you will misunderstand the purpose of this letter and I’m not at the right state of mind to determine whether this is the right thing to do or not.
It was tough for me to watch these rumors that are not even true spread around.
However, I kept thinking how hard it must have been fore you, and I felt truly apologetic. I was trying to figure out what I can do to lessen the pain that you must have been feeling and if there was something I could do to take it all in, I would have. No matter what the truth it, I’m sorry you had to go through all the emotions and feelings you felt because of me.
Because I was afraid that these dreamy days of seeing you could all so suddenly disappear again, I had the desire to see you as often as possible. Every event, I didn’t want to say good bye so I went overtime. I should have been more careful and prepare for better contents and better environment. My desire to see you all in person made me get ahead of myself.
Every moment I’ve spent with you, I had nothing but a sincere heart.
I cherish them all. I wanted to be close to you, so I did not realize some of the things I’ve said could have hurt someone. To everyone I have hurt through my actions and speech, I’m truly sorry.
The thing that most hurt me was when I heard this. They accused me of thinking you as my financial provider, I looked down on you, and I was ignorant towards you. That was never the case. I was always speaking with an honest heart and I really hope you know that. Even when some of you told me not to trust my fans too much, I was thinking, “who better to trust than my fans?”
It’s my duty to let you hear only good things, but instead, you heard words like ‘crime,’ ’embezzlement,’ and ‘scam.’ I’m so sorry. However, the truth hasn’t been revealed yet, and I will try my best to make it see the light. I don’t ask you to just sit tight and wait around for me. I’ll try to make you understand what is the truth and what is not. And regarding this part, I strictly and strongly emphasize that I have done nothing wrong.
Now, could I ask you to just trust and wait for me?
Regarding the people who are calling me a criminal, even though the truth hasn’t come out yet, I have turned over everything to my lawyers so the can take legal action against them. I want to do my best so that you won’t be hurt again. Time passes by no matter what, but I should have held your hands. I know it sounds silly, but I couldn’t dare hold your hands and ask for your trust.
I wanted to make only good memories so that when this journey finally ends some day, you would have good memories because you liked a person named Kang Sung-Hoon. Every event that caused an uproar is due to my fault, and I’m reflecting upon my past behaviors. If I get a chance to show you an upgraded, and more matured side of me, I promise to not let you down.
I’m sorry for not participating on the upcoming event. It feels like a dream that I actually turned down the chance to see you because I did not have the courage to smile and sing in front of you. I’ll take responsibility for the parts I am responsible for.
Also, I want to make sure that you know the rumors about fan contact, embezzling, and my relationship with the staff are all false. After I have organized everything in order, I will tell you the truth. As soon as everything is settled, Hoony World will also undergo a change of staff. We will only keep the space until everything is organized and afterwards, Hoony World will..
You are more special to me than anything in the world.
I’m so happy that I have you guys by my side. When I looked at you, whom I wouldn’t exchange for anything, I felt like I was dreaming and everything in the world seemed so beautiful. That’s how happy I was.
I don’t know when we will meet again, but until that day, please stay healthy. I promised we wouldn’t get separated again, but I’m sorry for hurting you with such unfortunate events. If the day miraculously comes that we see each other again, I hope we can meet with a smile on our faces.

Dear my beloved fans,
You have no idea how happy I was when I woke up this morning. Thank you for congratulating me on my 10th anniversary.
I was looking for ways to express my gratitude for the love I received from you in the past 10 years, and I decided to write it down. I hope you all like it.
Anyways, I remember when I first begun my career as a 10-year old girl. At the time, the drama set was just so fascinating and fun for me. Now that I look back at it, I realize how lucky I am. It’s enough that I can already do what I love so much, but the fact that I’m also surrounded by some amazing people and fans amazes me every time.
It’s a new start! As I just entered my 20’s, I will work hard until I’m in my 30’s and 40’s. I hope that everyone who have stayed by my side and loved me stays healthy and happy.
I will always thrive and learn to be a better person so that you won’t be ashamed of me. At last, I hope you are all happy, stay strong in the heat and fight through the day!
