S. Korean K-pop boyband Infinite to be in Singapore on Oct 5

In an e-mail interview I did with Infinite member L (yes, that's his stage moniker) last year to promote his hit TV drama, Shut Up! Flower Boy Band, the dreamy South Korean dude unabashedly gave himself "10 out of 10" in the looks department.

And it's not just L who's oozing confidence and charm.

Armed with an arsenal of catchy hits like Paradise, Destiny and Man In Love, Sungkyu, 24, Dongwoo, Woohyun, Hoya, all 22, Sungyeol and L, both 21, and Sungjong, 19, are now primed for international success following the recent announcement of their first-ever world tour.

It kicked off on the boys' home turf with two soldout shows at the 13,000-seater Seoul Olympic Gymnastics Stadium earlier this month.

They will continue to perform for audiences in Asia, the US, South America and Europe till the end of the year.

They will be in Singapore on Oct 5.

Infinite's confidence shone through at their Seoul performance, when they addressed their supporters' concerns about the merger of their record label, Woollim Entertainment, with K-pop agency giant SM Entertainment.

SM Entertainment, home to South Korea's biggest groups, such as Girls' Generation, SHINee and Super Junior, are well-known in the industry for producing top stars, factory line-style.
