To celebrate INFINITE member Hoya‘s birthday, a number of his fans decided to raise funds for the non-profit organization, Soree.
Hoya recently turned 26 on March 28, and fans found the perfect way to celebrate. They managed to collect more than 3 million won which will help the organization provide hearing aids and implants for children from low-income families.
The fan club has been consistently supporting the organization for the past few years and have been recognized for their kindness on Hoya’s birthday. One official from the fan club spoke about the reason behind this gift.
“I was so sad to hear about the 1,600 newborn babies born with hearing loss each year. These children cannot hear and live a life separated from their community.
As fans of a singer, We wanted to find a voice for these friends who cannot hear.”

In line with this kind gesture, INFINITE’s Hoya celebrated his own birthday simply, he shared a message to his fans on his personal Instagram account.
All of you guys are at the center of my happiness! Thank you, I love you.
— Hoya (INFINITE)
