A representative for the band Infinite told E! News, "If the previous albums were mostly popular among teenagers, the most recent album has been garnering support from those in their 20s and 30s. We believe the change in concept brought on this change in age groups."
Reports have been going around that Infinite has been changing their charismatic image in favor or a more sensitive feel. The song "Man in Love" is a new concept for the band.
Infinite broke out onto the scene in 2011. The 7 member boy band stole the hearts of teen fans in South Korea and Japan. They marked their return and new album with a press conference and fan Q&A session. The group came out on stage and gave the press and the fans a bow. They spoke about their new album and the changes they made to their sound. The group is hoping to branch beyond an audience of teens.
The 7 members of the band include, Sunggyu, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Hoya, Sungyeol, L, and Sungjon. The group is known for their flashy dance and highly synchronized dance moves.
