9th Most Talented Idol Group: Infinite

December 9, 2010

I know some of you might be wondering why a rookie group got this far in the ranking. But if you have been into Kpop as long as I have, you’ll know it when you see a diamond in the rough.

Infinite is the second coming of SHINee. What you see in Infinite now is what SHINee was two years ago. Infinite might even be stronger than SHINee when you compare their debut days’ performances. But then again, SHINee was younger than Infinite when they debut compared to the ages of Infinite when they debuted.

Infinite came to be known to the public because of their unbelievably synchronized performances. And to be that in sync, discipline is an utmost necessity. Some have noticed the similarity of U-Kiss and Infinite in terms of song distribution. But though they might have been depending too much on Sunggyu, WooHyun, Hoya, and Dongwoo for the vocals, so far their performances have not suffered with the inability of L, Sungyeol and Sungjong to keep up. But again, Taemin of SHINee was like that too before.

What’s going on for Infinite is potential. Right now you can see that there’s something there, and you can tell it can be harnessed. As I said in my previous posts, I think Infinite can be the next superstar. They can do other groups’ songs. But the Infinite’s biggest obstacle is that the company they are signed in are not that powerful to maximize that potential. Let’s face it, Kpop now is too political. A hit song can be determined by the powerful companies. Hot Potato for example had their “Confession” sweeping the entire nation but this accomplishment wasn’t even recognized.

Woolim Entertainment is an underdog company but if they can find Infinite “that” one song to catapult them to stardom, just one song strong enough to highlight what they can do, everything else will fall to place. Because that’s what Infinite lacks, opportunity.

That’s the 9th Most Talented Idol Group, I’ll leave you with my favorite performances of Infinite.
