The remaining 6 members have renewed their contract with the agency, and INFINITE will continue as a 6-member group.
INFINITE debuted in 2010, and their contract expired in June.
Hoya, since his debut, has been acting as a sideline, appearing in dramas such as ‘Reply 1997,’ ‘Radiant Office,’ and ‘Super Family.’
