Finally, the first day of the awaited world tour has come.
'INFINITE' is revealing their 'One Great Step' concert in the Seoul Olympic Stadium for two days on August 9th and 10th. After this concert as a start, they're planning to tour all over the world and hold concerts in Japan, China, North & South America, Europe etc. The rehearsals were also performed like an actual concert.
World tour. In the 4th year after their debut, it’s the first challenge for INFINITE. Right before this big run, they’re excited, nervous and of course pressured. That’s how they probably feel, right? Even until D-1 before the Seoul concert, INFINITE spilled beads of sweat. They went through their rehearsal as if it was the actual concert.
How is INFINITE’s world tour going to be. We are now going to reveal all the scenes of the seven members’ world tour rehearsal in Naver’s Star Cast.
1st step. This is the group rehearsal scene.
Even from the start it’s hot. Even though it’s a rehearsal, they look as engaged as if it was the actual concert. Take a close look at their movements when they lift their arms up. This group dance that looks like it’s been mesured with a ruler, it attracts your attention, right?
Let’s shoot from a closer angle
Their fashion makes them look like young men but their performances make them look like real men. The members got into their rehearsals while wearing regular clothes. Even though they’re wearing colorful and cute sweatsuits, they show this level of charisma. As expected, it’s INFINITE.
This time they’re singing their new song ‘Going to You’. You can see they will use standing mics for this stage. During the real concert, rather than hiphop fashion, you will probably be able to see a more sophisticated suit look, right?
2nd step. It’s time for the solo stage rehearsal.
For this concert, each member has prepared a plentiful solo stage. It’s a splendid chance to show their fans all over the world INFINITE’s musical growth. Each member has prepared his stage for a long time and is now checking it in the end.
You said it was too far away? Then, should we get closer to them?
L is holding a guitar. After tuning his guitar, he’s playing a sweet song. Honestly, L has received a hot response after playing the guitar during their last concert. Please look forward to this guitar playing handsome boy.
Sungyeol was sexy. It was an image that was 180 degrees different from his usual bubbly one. With his wifebeater and cap, you could feel an explosive celebrity force coming from him. It’s an explosion of charisma
Here’s Hoya. He was the most passionate. Even during the rehearsal there was no note he sang carelessly. Can you feel his explosive rap? We could feel his real man force from his body drenched in sweat.
Here’s Dongwoo. He’s of the ‘gap god’ type
(T/N : Gap god basically means that’s there’s a huge gap between his image on and offtstage). As soon as he grabbed his mic, he changed completely. He immersed himself in the rehearsal with a smile on his face. This is probably Dongwoo’s charm, right?
Here’s Sunggyu. His singing was explosive. INFINITE’s best high note master has come. He confidently showed powerful high notes. Please look forward to him filling up the stadium sonourously.
Last but not least, here’s Woohyun. He performed his song with a serious face expression. He filled the venue with his special sweet and soft voice. INFINITE’s condition? I think it’s 100%.
3rd step. It’s time for the rehearsal check.
You can also take a look at INFINITE being professional. The members gathered together and exchanged their opinions. They were totally into their discussion about the choreographies to fit the venue. They were looking for the positions and degrees that would make their angled choreographies look the best.
Look at it closely.
The members were gathered around Hoya. Hoya showed moves from the choreographies with simple hand movements and the members nodded. They were checking the moves. Their angled choreographies will probably come out like this, right?
"Don’t show me your back~♪" (Dongwoo)
The communication with the staff isn’t done carelessly. They focused to check the in ear headphones and mics. They both checked and discussed the kind of image they’d show on stage.
"Explosive high notes! I know this feeling"
"Ah ah~ mic test!"
"The mic was a bit uncomfortable~"
Take a look a the pictures below. Woohyun and Dongwoo are practicing their singing. They’re diligently humming their parts. The point of these pictures is L. Do you see ‘blank’ L? He’s listening to Dongwoo’s great singing and rapping indifferently.
"I won’t let the hand I’m holding tightly go again~♪" (Woohyun)
"Hm~ This much will be fine" (L)
☞ Bonus cuts! INFINITE’s resting time. The members who flaunted their strong skills seem a bit tired because of their never ending tight schedule. Even during their short break time, each member showed his personality. Starting from ‘blank’ L, bubbly Dongwoo, shy Sungjong and chic Woohyun.
Now, should we admire them?
"I’m sleepy~" (L)
"Let us rest a little !" (INFINITE)
"I want to stop like this" (Sunggyu)
"Looking at the camera once~" (Dongwoo)
"I should block your greed for the camera!" (L)
"I’m not wearing any makeup, are you going to take a picture of me?" (Sungjong)
"I want to stay alone for a bit" (Woohyun)
