Lee Sungyeol 이성열 is a member of Infinite.
Sungyeol was born on Tuesday, August 27, 1991, in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do.
He was born in the Chinese Year of the Ram. Like Sungjong, he’s a Virgo. Sungyeol and Woohyun’s blood type is B. At a height of 183 cm or 6', he’s Infinite’s tallest member. He’s taller than the shortest member, Dongwoo, by 8 cm.
Like Sunggyu, L, and Hoya, he graduated from Daekyeung University after majoring in applied music. His younger brother, Daeyeol, debuted in Golden Child.
Sungyeol was the last member to join Infinite. He originally planned to debut as an actor, and was once an actor trainee under SM Academy. He starred in the drama “High School Love On” in 2014 with Woohyun. He was also in the drama “While You Were Sleeping.” He’d like to try a character who’s strong yet funny, like Yoo Haejin or Kim Changjung. He likes the show “Law of the Jungle” that he’s been on it three times: in the Caribbean/Maya Jungle in 2013, in Panama in 2016, and in Kota Manado in 2017.
Before Sungyeol became a trainee, he went through a period of time where nothing went right for him. During that time, he went to 5 different tarot card readers; each one said that he would “create a big hit in 2010 and 2011” and also that he would “slightly come in contact with money in 2010.” At first it didn’t make sense to him because he wasn’t a trainee, but when he was taking test for a university he became a trainee for Woollim Entertainment. In 2010, he debuted with Infinite; in 2011, Infinite won their first award on “M Countdown.”
He used to share a room in the dorm with Sunggyu and Woohyun. He begged his stylist to dye his hair green for the “BTD” music video. He and Hoya were supposed to act alongside L and Woohyun in that video. One of his most prized possessions is a letter from a fan, which he keeps in his desk. He’s very emotional and is easily moved to tears, but when asked to cry on the spot when filming, he can’t.
Sungyeol is very competitive. His favorite food is tonkatsu, a Japanese dish, a breaded, deep-fried pork cutlet. His least favorite food is bean paste soup. His favorite colors are pink, purple, and green. He always carries cologne in his bag; he used to wear Voyage d’Hermès. He’s afraid of ghosts. He plays the drums. For fun, he surfs the web.
He chose Dongwoo as the Infinite member who’d be the best at love and relationships, because Dongwoo’s emotions and feelings are faithful. If Sungyeol could become another member, he’d want to be L, because he wants to be a flower boy.
