This idol went from a café part-timer to a star thanks to a manager who was a regular at his workplace

This part-timer, who was offered an audition by Nell’s manager after he confessed that he was a fan of Nell, eventually became INFINITE’s leader.

INFINITE’s Kim Sung Kyu successfully completed his first overseas fanmeeting schedule after recovering from a jaw injury.

On Nov 19th and 20th, Kim Sung Kyu held the fanmeeting “THE TEN” to commemorate the 10th anniversary of his solo debut at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) in Taiwan (local time). This was Kim’s first overseas fanmeeting after recovering from a jaw injury in August.

Meanwhile, Kim Sung Kyu suffered a fractured mandible in August and had to cancel all of his schedule, including the musical “Kinky Boots” and “Late Night Idol,” of which he was a part of the fixed cast. At the time, his agency said, “According to the specialist in charge, the surgery ended well, and he is currently recovering with stable condition.”

Later on Nov 26th, when asked by fans about his condition, Kim Sung Kyu responded, “I fell down forward and hit my chin,” he said, explaining the reason for his injury, “I’m much better now. I’m recovering now.”
