Kim Sunggyu 김성규 is the leader and main vocal of Infinite.
Sunggyu was born on Friday, April 28, 1989. He’s Infinite’s oldest member. He’s older than the maknae, Sungjong, by 4 years, 4 months, and 6 days.
He was born in the Chinese Year of the Snake. He’s a Taurus. He’s 178 cm or 5'10" tall. Sunggyu, Dongwoo, and Sungjong’s blood type is A.
He majored in practical music at Daekyung University, where Sungyeol, L, and Hoya also graduated. He studied at Hoseo University and attended Jeonju National University High School. He’s from Jeonju, Jeollabuk-do. He and L are both fluent in Japanese and speak some Mandarin. His sister, Kim Jieun, is five years older than he is.
Sunggyu auditioned for SM Entertainment twice and was rejected. Then Nell’s manager encouraged him to audition for Woollim Entertainment. During his trainee days, he didn’t always get along well with Woohyun, but after debut he said that Woohyun was the member he trusted the most.
During high school, he was in a band called Beat. They covered songs from Pia, Linkin Park, and Limp Bizkit. Sunggyu never wanted anything but to be a singer. When he told his parents about his dream of becoming an idol, they rejected it; his mother wanted him to have a normal life. He began to practice in secret.
He had a cameo in “The Thousandth Man” (2012) and acted in the 2013 drama “Pure Love.”
He used to share a room in the dorm with Woohyun and Sungyeol. Of all of the members, he was the quickest to learn the scorpion dance from their “BTD” choreography. One of his favorite early Infinite songs is “Hysterie.” If given the chance, he’d like to be a DJ. Before becoming an idol trainee, he wanted to pursue rock music. As the leader, he gets upset if the other members goof off during practice.
On rainy days during their trainee time, Sunggyu used to go with Hoya to eat lunch under a small jungle gym in a nearby playground. Once a kid walked past and called them beggars.
Sunggyu considers L to be Infinite’s most handsome member and Sungjong the cutest.
He loves to sleep and could sleep all day long. He has a soft heart and can’t stay angry for long. He bows to 90 degrees whenever he greets someone. His skin’s sensitive; he breaks out if he wears certain metals. If he had a superpower, he’d want to be able to teleport.
He chose Dongwoo as the member most likely to be the best at love and relationships, because upon first meeting, Dongwoo seems clumsy but has a pure charm.
