Infinite’s Hoya brought up his relationship with his father on broadcast.
While recording MBC’s Quiz to Change the World, Hoya revealed, “I stopped talking to my father after I dropped out of high school without telling my parents.”
Hoya, who was originally studying to enter a police academy, began dreaming of become a singer when he was in middle school and decided to leave school.
Hoya said, “I wasn′t on good terms with my father but after I dropped out, the relationship got worse. I didn’t contact him for 8 years.”
Hoya also said, “I thought my family was rich when I was young because my parents would buy me anything I wanted but I realized later that they were actually struggling from a lot of debt, to the point where red sequestration notes were tagged on things in the house. After I started making money, I paid off all the debt for my parents.”
